Agreed!!
I play wow myself (although..getting less and less interested day...by day...) and I cant even stand the forums!
I find them to be elitest that will not even ackowledge the concept that there are other games rather than wow out there...and some will most def be better!!!!
Im even finding that in my wow guild ingame....when my bf and I announced that we would more than likely be ditching wow for WAR we got flamed!!!! They didnt even want to hear that WAR existed and certainly wouldnt admit that it might be a half decent game.

Im excited about WAR, I have even got a thousand sun army painted at home :yes yes...i am a geek girl!!!) My bf has been playing warhammer for over 10 years!
Hell yes its going to be a great game and wow can kiss my arse Hehehehe

I mean come on, its 2008, you can't make a game look better than 2004 with computers that have 10x the average power and RAM? Fail.
Nope...I just dont agree, I think it looks fine and once the game reaches release I think its going to look even better.
I actually think its vice versa....to me wow's grahpics look outdated and baby like to me. I think it first became apparent to me after playing the game Lineage II...now htere are some awesome grapics!

Wow is a great game...but I think they fail in thier grapic detail on so many levels...compared to other games the armour is just plain dull.

Please show us screens of your advanced RETAIL copy of Warhammer. I would love to see how it compares to my beta ones.

I think people are beating a dead horse when talking about WoW graphics, it was good when it launched imo, as an artist I quite enjoyed the look of it compared to the dullness of eq2 all brown and plastic look, not to mention horrible performance on high end systems. You have to keep in mind that blizz had a goal when they created WoW and that was to reach as many people as possible, as many computers specs as possible and that meant not going way ahead with the graphics and it payed off for them, people didnt have to do any upgrading to play WoW and they were able to grab some of the casual and people new to the MMO generation.

I was really surprised how poor the performance was in the beta. On my rig, AOC runs smoother and looks much better, than the WAR beta. WAR's graphics aren't bad but they definitely don't look great. IMO, they are very similar to WOW and only the spell effects seemed on par with AOC's.

I think the improved with open beta and will improve again with public release.
I think people seem to be forgetting that this isnt the finished product yet and are only going to get better.
I cant wait to see how they look in release since I am already impressed.

I hadn't any problems with performance. I did notice it was a little sluggish when I would first log into the world but it was pretty smooth after that, considering it is a beta. I did have the CTDs that every had but on 4 of them through out the weekend. Right now my main concern is and game content.

Please note, I didn't compare WAR to WoWs graphics, somehow the defensive squad assumed that once I said WARs graphics were bad.

WoWs graphics are descent and likeable... even now. This is rather further emphasized when other, newer games are still cranking out enemies that look like crap or very uninspired.

Could they be better? Should they be better? Oh hells yes. The only thing I can say thats good about the current style of graphics is it runs on my laptop. However I would so love for it to beable to take advantage of my beast of a machine.

I'm leaving all opinions of war up to when ever it comes out and I can play it. Theres so much I would need to see and try that nothing less would be appropiate.
