World of Warcraft vs. Warhammer
« on: October 29, 2008, 08:44:11 AM »
I play world of warcraft for about 2 years and now i just started Warhammer online.
What i want to know, what you guys think i should keep playing? WoW, Warhammer or both?
I have the time for both. Also, if anyone else is in any of those two games, let me know.
World of Warcraft---> 70 level Night Elf Druid, server: Anachronos
Warhammer Online---> 13 lvl Witch Elf, server Finuval Plains

I play WAR, on the European servers (Destruction - Burlok to be precise). I tried WoW, but never really got into it. WAR I'm really enjoying, but then I've been a GW fan for over 20 years now, so there might be a slight touch of bias there for me :)

What it comes down to is play the game you enjoy. Or games. Everyone is going to be different, and just because I prefer A over B for reasons of X, Y and Z doesn't mean you will.

Hmm... Well, I played WoW for a while, but overall thought it was utterly boring. WAR has been on my radar for a while... I want to see if its going to have a strategy component to it. If it does, I'll be storming into it ASAP. If not... I'll stick to CoX.

It's too soon for me to know if there's a strategy component but as i recall from yesterday, i saw a merchant selling burning oil and flaming oil for ballistas, so you can use them in RvR scenarios. My Witch Elf doesn't all those, since she likes to tear her enemies from behind >)

I love WoW, there are many things to do in there, even after reaching 70, when an entire different game unlocks, especially now with the release of the new expansion, 'Wrath of the Lich King'.

While I am strong in my hatred for WoW and its love for rogues if you are looking for constant entertainment it beats Warhammer. 
I regret leaving behind my 70 and not finishing my 63 and 66, mainly because Warhammer is still new and unpolished.  On many servers there are massive amounts of downtime where nothing is happening.  The RvR is excellent when its actually happening and it is much more a team focused game. 
You should continue playing both till Warhammer shows its true potential.  Then drop WoW like a bad habit.

So far i haven't encountered any downtime on my server, which has a lot of people inside. The problem is that Warhammer was launched very soon. I've noticed a lot of bugs and graphic flaws which i'm sure, in time they will be gone. Blizzard is still Blizzard and Mythic will have a hard time surpass Blizzard with Warhammer.

The bugs don't bother me much.  Heck blizzard still has bugs that haven't been fixed since release.  While I'm not confident War will overshadow WoW anytime soon, I think it has the potential to if they stick to their guns.

No doubt in that, Warhammer and WoW are the hottest online games these days and Lineage, Conan have stepped to the side to those MMOs. One way or another, playing either of those is going to lots of fun.

One thing about WoW is Blizzard is a solid company that seems to actually fix and improve the game consistently. I'm not sure how Mythic Entertainment under EA will fare over the long haul.

My past experience with EA customer service in relation to mporgs was terrible and was with Ultima Online.

EA (UO) GM: "Sorry.. I can't help thee with that." <smack>

I've had problems with my account, Mythic Online fixed it. While I had problems with Spore, I got put on hold for an hour.

Mythic Entertainment would be the only shining gem in that big ball of coal.

Mythic Entertainment doesn't crap on their customers, although their EU branch seems to not give a damn, then again, it's ran by a different company. :/

But, ME is quite stable, just see them as an individual company with EA's cash-flow.

That sounds cool and kind of like Origin Systems was before EA took over Ultima Online.

After three years of WoW, I'm out.

But the other two?  I used to play in CoH, and I honestly miss it.  WAR looks fun, too.

I'd have to pick the one I really want to play, though.

Well, if you're on any of the European servers, I can show you around. I more play CoV than CoH, but I haven't touched it since WAR came out :)

I hear you.  Five years of UO, and a GM was only able to help me out once, in all those years.  And it was only after hounding them for weeks. :P

I promised myself I wouldn't, but I'm totally back in WoW again.  Primarily because of the polish.  I tried WAR for a bit, but it didn't stick with me.  I also tried AoC, long enough to reach endgame to discover that there ... was no endgame... and I lost interest in CoH pretty quickly as well. 

Not that I'm a hardcore Warcraft fan, but I do enjoy it the most out of all the ones I've played just for all that it has to offer.  I'm waiting for either World of Starcraft or a Warhammer 40k MMO to come out.  There's a 40k MMO in the works, but not much information is on it yet, so it's likely a year or two off.

As for what you should play, Fragile... whatever you enjoy most. :)

The problem is, Rubie, that i do enjoy both games. WAR, WoW and DOTA are the online games that i wont change them with anything. I tried lots of games, like, DnD online, CoH, RF Online, Sayia, Lineage II and MU. Still the three are top of my list.

Sci-Fi MMOs got a bad standing on the market and get often rejected. Somehow people seem to love just smashing each other with maces or axes. Tabula Rasa get's shut down in February but everyone who played it long enough get's a generous refund worth almost $80 from NC. Access to the Aion Beta and Prelaunchphase and 3 Month in Lineage 2 and CoX.
I admit that I'm kinda sad that Tabula Rasa will be stoped. It was such a good game. I really loved it. It was the only game I played longer than it was actually on the market.
Right now I'm back in WoW and have to say not much changed. It's the same hunt for equipment. It's the same Equipment exchange once you arrive in Northerend and all these things we had in Burning Crusade. If you got noone in game to level with, got a guild or anything it get's boring in the exceptional time of 20 Minutes! That's world record in my book. The new Class just can't keep your interest long enough. At least it can't keep mine.
I'm kinda curious about Warhammer online. Though I want to learn more about it before I consider playing it. Maybe I should just go back to Exteel and blow up some more scrap metal...

From what i've seen from WoW in Wrath of the Lich King, is that it became a bit warhammerish. I mean, now you get achievements and sieges, things that you had in warhammer from the beggining. But i can't say i get bored by playing alone, since i took my character from my initial server and migrate to Anachronos. There i met new players and i took my character from 40 to 70 alone, as for the gear, i tried to get  everything i can from quests and stuff around, untill i got myself in a guild but the gear i got was from raiding for fun, not because i was eager to get them. I just love my character for what she can do (Druid) and not because of what she is capable to do, while she wears top gear. I've heard about the closing of Tabula Rasa and i must say i was expecting that. Hardly a sci-fi game can stand among the classic RPGs. Even RF online, was sci-fi but it had many fantasy epic signs in it, thats why many people liked it. The best reason i can find about a game to become popular, is the way you pay it. For example, WoW and Lineage are pay card games, when others are via paypal. A lot of people can play them i know but dont forget that younger ages, ages that cant have a credit card or dont want to charge their parents bank account wont be able to pay for this games, so they choose to play something more affortable, in paying and in approach.
