I’m really excited that I can finally report on an awesome few days in Warhammer Online.Â The past few days … I think it’s been 4 or 5 now actually… I’ve been having nothing but amazing experiences in WAR.Â Now that Happy Fun Guyz (Our guild/community) are once again thriving in Warhammer (and not spread across multiple games) we’re getting together and experiencing all the fantastic things that WAR has to offer.Â Most of us decided to make alt characters since we were either bored or not liking our mains or in my case a mix of frustration/boredom with the Shaman and hating the Fortress siege lag.Â Â On these alt characters we have been logging in each day to see huge activity going on in Tier 2’s RvR lakes.Â It doesn’t matter when we log in, morning or night, it’s packed full of people.Â Bouncing back and forth between the various pairs I’ve been leveling really, really well and gaining almost full RvR influence bars.
The keep sieges have been really vicious.Â We’ve encountered small groups guarding the keeps successfully and enormous 200+ zergs (a guild called Ruin/Ruinous/Ruined has like 500 members in this tier). The small groups, if they play well, see fantastic results and the zergs usually spark our side to make our own zergs.Â Players are engaging everywhere in the RvR lakes and the little combat indicators are always showing.Â Â The regional chats in all these pairings are full of people getting exciting about attacking and defending, not wanting to lose territory, and wanting to earn renown.Â This is what the game is supposed to be about!
My character is about to level out of T2 and I’m actually kinda sad to see it go.Â The community in T2 has been amazing.Â Heck, I actually felt some realm pride yesterday when I heard that Ruin was attacking – I wanted to get out there and stomp them just to read their cries on the forums.Â Actual rivalries in WAR… whodathunkit.Â So anyway, I’m leaving T2 behind *tear* but from what I’ve heard, T3 is even better.Â If that’s true then I have a ton of fun ahead of me.Â Finally – FINALLY – WAR is where it should have always been.Â No, it’s not perfect.Â Yes, there are tons of issues and bugs that I could complain about but to have this much fun anyway just rocks.
Happy Fun Guyz of old and anyone else out there interested in a community of friends, I urge you to visit our forums and consider coming back to WAR or joining us for the first time.Â There’s a real future here in WAR now and it would be a shame to miss out.Â If WAR is not your thing but you’re still wanting a community to move game to game with then feel free to join the community and maybe you’ll catch up with us in future games like Darkfall.
