Story I havent played Warhammer online but it looks like it might just be the thing to take down WoW (in the North American market anyways). The RvR is one of the best additions to an MMORPG i have ever heard of.....anywho, discuss

    The article doesn't state Warhammer as a competitor against WoW.. O_o So I'm a bit confused about the thread title here.

    World of Warcraft isn’t going anywhere.

    Thats true. With the expansion coming wow will be popular like never before.

    Best of all, Warhammer is built around a deep system for players to war with one another for control of fortresslike strongholds and even entire cities

    WAr is more PvP based while WoW is a bit more PvE
    The best part of WOW is banding together with friends to battle big computer-controlled bad guys in carefully scripted encounters.

    It's not WoW killer. Nothing will "kill" WoW (for few years at least).

    WoW has competition against Age of Conan and LOTRO too. Since both of them get discussed quickly in that article, the thread name still confuses me.

    The RvR Is epic on Warhammer. You can start at level 1 and go all the way to 40 in just pure RvR.
    They've also prevented the large ganking qualities. Any person that's higher then the level base for that area gets turned into a chicken.

    From what I hear, a lot of people are saying War sucks. I haven't played it personally, but I still dont think it is any form of competition, they only have less than 10% the sub count as WoW does.

    It got amazing ratings by pretty much every site out there. Warhammer already has over 750,000 players and it's quickly rising.

    IMO I don't see WAR as a huge competition to WoW. I have played WAR and well I found it "weird" shall we say. Just the animations of the casting and attacking is a "turn off".

    World of warcraft always has competition..

    To me, i think its a beautiful game, although hating it at times.
    like now, i hate it.

    i only need 120 more gold to get my 150 riding to go 100% faster...
    to buy it its 510 gold.
    getting gold is fucking hard.

    So right now im grinding down quest, and selling shit for hella much.

    I have never played warhammer online, but what i was told by Admiral Ackbar, it seems fun.
    My sister wants to play it.
    I think we might have to go half and half on the game.
    but untill then, its grinding down gold for me :D

    In my opinion Warhammer is greater than WoW, In many aspects they are very similar but Warhammer pulls it off. I have played WoW for one year and found it very boring, the long grinds to get to 70, then the long grinds to get the gear you want, eather it being pvp or pve based gear. Warhammer is not as long of a grind im already almost max level in the one month i have played, i have not commited excessive amounts of time to it and yet im almost there. Although there is very limited PvE in Warhammer about every other aspect makes up for it. Examples are Fortresses that are always being attacked by the opposite faction, The great scenarios for every tier everysingle scenario has its own play style and tactics to it, Morale abilitys also are a great feature if you get in trouble just use the right one and you can turn the tide of battle for yourself, and the list will go on. In conclusion both WoW and Warhammer have there ups and downs its just how you want to play an mmorpg so before you say its horrible please try it.

    It took a year and a half for WoW to get boring.
    Unfortunately its only taken about 1 month for WAR to become boring.

    Having said that during the time i played them both I enjoyed WAR much more and it will definatly be a game I will go back to playing (sparingly)

    Disapproving for lacking effort.

    Also, this is stating the complete obvious, I've played Warhammer, and yes it's good... it's very different and is quite fun, however it is a completely "no-shit-or-messing-around" MMO.

    You get quests, it tells you EXACTLY where to go on the map, you complete the quest and reap the benefits. However, that doesn't suit everyones tastes and does eventually seem very repetative.

    I personally quite like it, but it's still buggy and once my 30 free days runs out I wont return to it for a rather long time, I'm going to wait for it to develop and improve before I give it another go.

    But, I don't think it will "take down" WoW, whatever that means, WoW is too huge, and too perfected.

    I played WAR online, and AOC they both suck because of their massive performance issues. Every single person who I encountered on the forums, and in the world said they lag like shit and they even had a high end computer.

    Stick to WoW, it doesnt require High End Comps, and it has alot to offer.

    I feel that once WoW has past the age threshold, and blizzard decides to either stop making expansions, or that they have so many, that its impossible to get to max level before the next, that it will be a good day for MMO's.

    Because no longer will people have to decide between WoW or X game, because right now, that's whats tearing up these potentially excellent games. If WoW wasn't here to steal the subs, people would go to them, and it would push the devs to be better, because they wouldn't have the mindset of "Well, we cant beat them, so lets just make it 'ok'."

    Warhammer doesn't require a high end computer. I have a store bought HP with everything orginally in it besides an old 7600 GeForce Video Card. Warhammer I think has more to offer because Warcraft you have to hit 70 before you can really do anything. Warhammer also just came out and it's only been a month. WoW had it's problems in the begginning and so does Warhammer. Soon Warhammer will be more then perfect competition for WoW.

    WoW will never die, because it's people like me that make it fun to play.

    More people need to have FUN playing rather then making it their job. I can say with out a doubt myself and my guild has a million times more fun doing gimmick events, and we are still 3/6 Sunwell (In fact we are doing Eradar Twins as I post this, so it could be 4/6 in a few minutes). When you stop taking this game as a second life or a job, and more as a game where the objective is to have fun, usually sucess follows, making everything even more fun.
