Sweet, now you can run Nordenwatch all the way to level 40 why so serious?

I still have serious doubts because the problem is scenarios do not pop fast enough, especially during off hours.  So if you play during the day, what do you do with your time since scenarios wont be one of the options?  They need cross server scenarios if they want to increase the frequency

So they kept Mourkain Temple and Tor Anroc? Wow, talk about shitty choices.

Is Warhammer Online the anti-game? Generally, and especially in the case of MMO's, subsequent patches tend to add content; Warhammer Online has successfully removed significant portions of content with each iterative patch.

Ending a sentence with a preposition is something up with which I will not put.

Nordenwatch was pretty fun as a scenario.  Too bad the rest of the game that they surrounded it with was shit.  I bet they did Nordenwatch first and then ran out of ideas.

My friend made me DL the unlimited free trial the other day, and playing through the noobie areas was a shock, they have removed like 70% of the lowbie quests. Ones that worked fine.

Didn't they get rid of 2/3 of the zones in the lower tiers?  I'm going to download this for my Mac and see how it works just to check out the failure.

I could happily play Nordenwatch and Mourkaine temple all the way to 40.  I may have to give this game another try.  I actually enjoyed playing my shaman.

I was thinking the same thing and am redownloading now.

Edit: Also, I just want to say: Someone flipped a switch and increased XP and Renown and made Nordenwatch 1-40. I thought that wasn't possible.

Tor Anroc was the best... and it only sucked if you had no knockback!

Of course they've done a bunch of tweaks to immunities and knockbacks since I quit.

Only for the free trial users. However everyone now starts in the empire pairing. Its better for new players as they don't immediately find themselves cold and alone in the world, they have to wait for Tier 3 for that  why so serious?! However with land of the dead pretty much everyone just skips tier 3 anyway.

And yet the Greenskin/Dwarf starting area was sooooo much better overall, in terms of quests and layout and scenery. meh.

For a Swordmaster it was a sweet, sweet map.  Really coming into your own as a tank, CC wasn't too bad yet, and area knockback if people were being annoying.

I had some epic battles there being the dudette killing the dude with the thing to take the thing.

I read comments like this and it makes me sad. WAR is a textbook case of squandered potential.  I had some of my favorite mmo moments playing this game in late beta/early release but they were overshadowed by the crap you had to endure during the later game.  I expected shitty pve, so I'm not even going there.

That presupposes he was ever alive, as opposed to being a silver-haired banshee that sucks pure joy disguised by a glamour.

Even so, its always scary when they invite the chef who specializes in making shit sandwiches to cook at your lunch buffet.

This.  My sword master had an AE knockback, at one point they made the range of it and the distance you got thrown ridiculously large.  Tor anroc was pure fucking joy, specially since i was defensive specced, i would just wade into large crowds and fuck up their day.  I'm sure i was responsible for large amounts of destro rage quits.  Sorry?

I never used it to push people into the lava unless they tried to knock me there first, because it was annoying.  If they tried though, there was nothing so sweet as showing them how to do it properly.  PUNT!

Yeah, this. I think one of the reasons this game had such a strong backlash was because it was so close to truly being something great. Tier 1 was totally awesome. And screw nordenwatch, Gates of Ekrund were better. That was just a totally awesome map. It had the concentration point in the middle, the overhangs, and back door's to each team's side. I remember playing that map the first day I logged in and thinking 'wow, this is actually great'.

I think Tier 2 was pretty good, too. It was Tier 3 that shot you in the face with acid buckshot and then pissed on the wounds. But we've gone over this so much... the conclusion is exactly what was said: it was so close to being the fucking bee's knees. If it were just awful then it's just another game.

I'm always tempted. Always. I just know that they won't get it together. And I'm still not contributing to Barnett's salary; I said it eight months ago and it still stands. When and if he ever gets shunted off to somewhere not Mythic full-time I'll give it another whirl.
