As a WAR subscriber, I feel like I'm part of a sandbox meta-game that Mythic is playing called "Design an MMO On the Fly".

I no longer subscribe, but your statement here describes very well how I felt when I was subscribed and playing.

It's a shame, really. It may go without saying, but that we feel/felt this way just shows how confused and directionless Mythic is with WAR and how transparent their confusion and lack of direction is to everyone, including their players.

That's quite funny and sad all at the same time.

And for how long they have been confused and directionless (I haven't played in avidly for many months).

I resubbed in December after 6 months, and though I'm quite happy with the game now, I would really like if they found the best direction finally :P

About the revised scenario structure: it is definitely way better than the original plan last week, and I appreciate that they listened to their customers in this case, but I wish this listening to the feedback from the playerbase would be, well, an everday habit, so to say :)

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to the next patches (especially 1.3.5)

I played WAR at release and it was fun but got busy in my life and found frustration in the fortress areas and cancelled. I re-subbed in December and have found a really nice experience. I played 4 years of DAOC and 4 years of wow only to have found my home with WAR. It is great for a small burst of fun or a long ORVR session.
The direction of the game is clear easy access PVP.
Great PVP:
- Keep Strats(Defense payouts for efforts, lots of options for play styles) - Check
- Quick Travel - Check
- War Report to get into action faster - Check
- Warband System - Join and fight Fast - Check
- Balanced classes - Check - paper, rock, scissors works
- Rewards for everything you do - Check
- Nice Guild System - Check

All games have their flaws but this game is fun and keeps my attention. I look forward to future patches. 1.3.4 is really looking good.
