They should've rolled this out on their MMO a long time ago :(

lol - What a joke... Taken the Warhammer IP down by 1 more lvl. Didn't even know it could go any further down.

I kind of like it actually. The graphics look very similar to Warhammer Online though...

I believe this may be a "mod" of the WAR engine, ala DotA was a mod of Warcraft III. The graphics look way too similar (and lackluster and washed out, IMHO) to WAR to be a coincidence. Plus it's very easy to use an existing engine to create a MOBA.

That being said it may be very cool if they add some much needed "flair" to the MOBA marketplace. I love LoL and HoN but they get repetitve and I can only play a couple matches at a time then I get bored.

...It's made by the same company using the same engine and the same bloody assets. Of course it looks similar.

Looks a little.... outdated? Already?

So, repackage the good parts of Warhammer?

Hmmm.. probably the only thing I would buy from this would be the soundrack.

I think I've had enough Warhammer to last me decades.

You know i actually like this. This may be the first MOBA i'm actually interested in. Looks like WAR lite basically, could turn out to be fun. But EA i really hope you support this (and TOR) better than you did WAR. I don't trust you very much.

Bioware sure have been busy lately :D I really hope they are successful and EA doesn't throw a wrench in there somewhere

I'd be more worried about Games Workshop. They're famous for torpedoing good ideas in their games, both board- and video-.

you do realize that bioware isnt a company in any way whatsoever anymore right?

Electronic Arts has a development division called Bioware.

Yes some of the former Bioware staff is running that division of the same name. But they are 100% completely a wholly owned division of EA

Looks like a cash-grab attempt; trying to ride the coat-tails of games like League of Legends and Heroes of Newerth. Also, don't forget DOTA 2 is coming soon as well. This genre is about to be driven into the ground.

@(Unverified) Seeing as HoN and LoL are based on DOTA, DOTA2 can only push the genre towards further success
