@(Unverified) Well the servers are still up, so they have to be making enough to cover that and the rest of their bills.

WAR is only three years old? Really? It seems like it's been out for longer than that. Weird!

Jah, WAR is the crack ho of gaming world.

It's been used, abused, neglected and mistreated so much that it seems many more years older than it should.

@(Unverified) It's worth dropping into for a month, doesn't seem like much of a future as far as content goes besides RMT pets and the like.

They did spend a big wad of money on Wrath of Heroes which is currently in closed beta. WAR leadership are hoping that'll be the final nail in the coffin I would guess.

I'm really looking for a MMORPG to play right now.
Can any of you guys suggest something? I'm tired of WoW like games, Aion, Rift, GuildWars, I all did it and don't plan to ever get back. Don't care about DF and MO or DDO anymore too.
The only reason I want to try WAR again is because I love the lore and orcs and general "aroma". But I gotta know, is the world empty in low tiers? Is it easy to get open quest groups and bgs? Are people still retarded in them? Should I bother?
If not, what game do you suggest?

@(Unverified) Download the free trial (levels 1-10) and see if its worth your money. I really really want to like WAR, but I just don't think its worth the same amount as some of the greater MMOs

Vindictus

Eden Eternal

Hellbreed (Browswer-based)

World of Tanks

Those are my suggestions. I'll say Path of Exile too, but its in Closed Beta still.....sadly.

Day 9 of my 14 day 'Return to War' experience...Bioware/Mythic support: "Sorry, we still don't know why your account won't work or why your password can't be changed"

I like the comments with this article... so far no "LOL @ WOW" or "it should go F2P"

I think that no other game (except CoL when Roper was running it) has brought such comments. I may just sub for a month and see how it is doing. I really wanted this game to succeed. Hope I can find some PVP besides the battlegrounds... I use to love the open world pvp and seiges... oh well.

Some day I would like to know who fumble this one... was it mythic or EA? I tend to think it was EA because DAoC has a good rep as a game and it is 10 years old.

yeah..game is still live and kicking, EU servers at least are pretty active in all tiers when u play on primetime ofc. theres plenty of openRvR action going on. sadly there is not enaugh new content do the game.
but 1.4.5 should introduce fortresses in new way again. so there is little hope to go back after the patch is deployed.
with WAR i usually play like 1-2 months. then i quit due the lack of content..but there is really no new modern game with such a good pvp so i allways tend to go back to WAR at some time.

A lot of people give WAR a hard time just for the sake of it. I haven't played it since the first (last?) server merge - so probably a couple of years right there - but when I was playing, it was brilliant. The only reason I don't re-sub now is, I'm frightened of how many millions of gigabytes the client download will be. :D

@pcgneurotic
they have had 6 server merges rounds that I know, they are at 2 for the entire US american population, and 5 for the entire European population (2 english 2 german and 1 french servers).
And none of them are exactly packed full anyway, actually a couple of them are way below the line where one should consider another merge.

most of the discussion going on the official forums is analyzing why the game failed this hard, and whether or not the game is utterly dead at this point (consensus being: it Is).

About the client size, it hasnt changed much since you left (which I assume was after LotD). Since the game went belly bottom practically from the get go, they have added so few content for this game that I dont think the client has increased anything over 1gb from the point you lfet.

@Faction 3

From discussions in game it seems that people specifically avoid the pve now since renown is the rank you are most concerned with leveling, not your character level.
People don't run scenarios until T4 since there is too much xp in them compared to renown.

It's sad cause there is a load of pve content in the game, although the mob UI and patting is still brutal.
