That makes me wonder.. I pre-ordered at GameStop AGES ago... does this mean I get open beta access or would I have needed to pre-order it NOW to get it? :\

(Pisses me off they removed Choppa though. Guess I need to go Marauder after all)

Eh think imma stick on wow, I got alot stuff goin on it, and I'd hate restarting new with nothing ;/

People tell me its soorta like "Your always in hilsbrad, your going to get ganked alot, but by people in your level range" and the RVR is basically av.

I might try it if it has a free trial though.

I mean... there was alot hype on age of conan see how that turned out ;/

p.s. gimme your wotlk beta key! XD

There are RVR and PVP areas and also PVE you can technically skip the PVP and RVR areas entirely but the endgame content comes from rvr and pvp. And I wish I had a lich king beta invite to see if it'll change my mind but wasn't we JUST like this when burning crusade came out? Believe me I was 'jumping' for joy to get out of valor, scholo etc gear for much better stuff. But with the additions of heroics kind of turned it off for me a lot..epics used to put a lot of effort into to work for and now their easy to get from badge vendors, not good as the boss drop epics like bt etc but still. I was planning on quiting wow when the expansion after lich king would be announced but it may come early. If I could get my perma banned character back from FFXI I would glady come my ass right back to ffxi.


edit: Also I should note that in WAR if a high lvl player comes walking into a lower lvl area to gank they get turned into a chicken and the lower lvls can kill him.

If a high level person enters the a lower level PVP zone, IE if you're a 40 Chosen and you go to a Rank 1 Empire area... you get turned into a Chaos chicken. :D Well... at least I THINK it's only if you go into a lower ranked PVP/RVR zone...

As for end-game there's giant PVE dungeons inside the main cities you're raiding that you can only access when you are sieging the city and there is also RVR which is killing their king and anyone defending him as well as capturing fortresses. Apparently righting Karl Franz and Tchar'Zanek is supposed to be insanely awesome fights. At least that's what the devs told me, go figure.

According to the "informative video" i saw about the "fighting area's...

theirs like "brackets" as ya lvl... (I guess your forced to move along as you lvl)

basically the whole game is a "RVR" from lv 1 to whatever the cap is.

now... each zone has a pvp and pve area. lets say each zone is 50% pvp 50% pve

Now the pvp area's have an "objective" if one side is stronger then the other and starts capturing the "ojectives" the loosing side looses its pve area... till theres none left. Then it just becomes an all out war since you "level faster" (or what it seemed like the guy said) as you kill people.

This would lead to PK's or atleast groups of people going around farming people for exp.

I dunno if they changed that or not but thats what I'd imagine will happen over time, as you get exp/money from just raping people all over the place.

I dunno about you but I'd like my high lvl to go and rape whoever it is if they did that, unfortunantly you cna't do that in warhammer as each area has a "level restriction", so you'll have a soorta like "twink" goin around to kill people.

Atleast in wow, if someone sat n camped me I can rape them on my alt XD


here's the video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N5VqsZoad1Q
the way he says it sounds like it anyway, wher eyou can literaly own an area and just rape people.

You never lose your "PVE" area if they capture the objective and those capped areas you're refering to are the scenarios which is like a WoW BG... only if you are to low to join, say... rank 1 in a Tier 1 Scenario... then you get level bumped, stat wise/HP wise, to whatever the top rank is (or little under it) so you're not... COMPLETELY useless. However you will only have Rank 1 skills so you'd still be pretty crappy.

As for the Open Field Objectives in the PVP area all it does, whoever captures it, is provide a small bonus to the side that has it in their control and since it's still a boost you can bet both sides will be battling for it. The boost won't be significant enough for the side that has it to ALWAYS dominate the other side and, if I recall correctly, if one side has it to long then the buff it generates begins to lessen until they give up control.

And getting nasty messages when I kick their asses as Vader. :D

This seems a lot like World Of Warcraft to me, just with more matured graphics. I don't know anything about warhammer though, besides hearing some people talking about it now and then when i was in school... But they were talking about a table-top game i think, cuz one said he built a table or something lol, that's all i really remember.

Edit: Replaced the word warcraft with warhammer cuz they're too similar, and my simple mind got them confused.

Warcraft was based (see copied), probably about 90%, off of Warhammer.

Warhammer Online is basing itself off Warhammer the Tabletop. (Which has been around 20 some-odd years)
