I didn't want this forum to be lonely... thought I'd keep hope alive for Warhammer Online.

I'm hoping for Q1 2008... but I don't think I believe it.

Sorry for the double double double... but perhaps some of you haven't seen this: PvP from the PoV of the zealot (Chaos heals and buff/debuff type)

http://web.mit.edu/jaster/Public/Random/Zealot%20RvR.avi

The guy gets into the PvP zone about 2min into the movie.

Kind of but not really... The zealot isn't meant to dps at all really. They have some bad nukes, though they're primary form of dps is meant to be melee. In group pvp, the have a bunch of AoE spells that do things like... heal all allies and slow all enemies in the area, or buff all allies and dmg all enemies in the area. Given that it's a support class, it seems to be wildly popular among the beta testers.

Sounds kind of like a bard played by a scrub who tries to melee instead of just twisting songs like a madman.

So is the preferred acronym for Warhammer Online WAR or what's the deal with that, because clearly if it's going to be better than WoW it has to have at least as good an acronym.

WAR is the preferred and most commonly used acronym.

It's also appropriate... Warhammer: Age of Reckoning

Ah, I didn't know the title of the game.

It seems to me that all games with titles like that failed as MMORPGs and the good ones like Everquest and World of Warcraft didn't have a colon in the name of the original release, whereas crap like Dungeons and Dragons Online did.

Um... WAR owns bitches? I mean, you point out two games that where good and one game that was bad and pick out one (of the multitude of things) that separates them. What's to respond to; the implied statement that WAR is likely to suck like D&D online? Meh
