"more exciting than hey end game contant only a few will experince."

I'm guessing you no longer play WAR. Anyone rank 40 can experience the killing the opposing faction's king now. A few patches ago before they changed the city encounters your statement was true.

On Badlands server we are invading or defending a city several times a week.

The problem is Gauge, that sacking the same city over and over again gets old. Which is why I canceled my subscription.

I thought that initially city sieges were meant to be rare and take effort, but if it swings both ways over a week that doesn't sound good.

Also, if you do it all the time, the repetition will make it boring and it will lose that special feeling

The PvE cap might be rank 40 but the real cap is RR 80 and the magority of players are not RR 80 yet. They would of been better off anoucing two news races a new pairing rather than Skaven (not playable at level one we want to do some thing differnt) and 20 more rvr ranks. But the full anoucement comes this saturday so maybe there will be more to come but its not excatly setting the MMO world on fire.

Man, I would have actually purchased the expansion -- and -- resubscribed for a little bit to play Skaven, but since they won't be available at level 1... whelp, there goes that.

If their smart they will take what they learned from DAOC (finally) and add a third faction to the rvr. Two sided pvp is, and always will be, imbalanced as hell. One side always ends up slightly stronger which draws all the fair-weather fanbois. Then you end up with WoW style server imbalances of 3 or 4 to 1. In a 3 sided rvr world though the two weaker sides can easily gang up on the stronger and often do.

I remember from old-school DAoC where Mid and Hib would often gang up against the Alb zergs. Granted, some servers were fairly even but a lot of servers had a huge Alb population advantage.

If anyone wants to see the reaction of the expansion news plus the sov set overall just read the boards. Basically Mythic has decided to cater to the elite few that are already RR80. Today is the last day of my 10 day free return to WAR bonus. /Cancel

Those that are wearing full sovereign sets are using insta-gib rifles in a regular deathmatch game. Adding another 20 RR's on top will only increase the power divide. Good luck with an empty game....

Too bad the game engine still sucks and is plagued by gameplay that feels like you're in molasas, complete with MythicSeconds™.

Agreed with Dark, after coming from some brief spells in AoC and CO I was struck by how awful the combat is in WAR. I felt as if it was hit and miss whether or not my character actually did what I wanted...or if I actually could do that ability.

I'm thinking Skaven will be a 3rd Faction going the Death Knight via WoW route (gotta have a 40 on one of the previous sides, then you can make a new Skaven as a 3rd Faction character)

This will cut down on the amount of Zones they need to add via a expansion.

Le'ts hope this is the 3rd faction they sorely need, I could see a 2nd race being introduced to side with the Skaven. If this game gets a 3rd faction, I'll reactive my account right away.

This is a fine piece of PR work! A nice teaser (OMG Skaven!), the tiniest tid-bit of information (raising renown cap, lowering the RR curve), and then a nice dose of expectation management to follow it up (oh, this isn't one of these big expansions).

So I have to ask, if this isn't a big "every 2 years" expansion, what exactly have they been working on the past 2 years? =)

Fixing everything that didn't work right at Launch. No one really denies that.

I know, just poking fun because of the way it was worded in the article. They don't want to "Release a huge expansion every 2 years." yet the expansion is announced 2 weeks from the 2 year anniversary of the launch.

Just hit my funnybone.
