Latest MMO Fad

WoW was fun for a while, but upon reaching the Endgame material, it slows down, becomes a drag, and you’re faced with not only difficulty in the game, a lot of elitist jerks – and that’s being nice. What am I talking about? World of Warcraft, an online MMOG (massive(ly) multiplayer online game). People all over the world play the same computer game online, competing against each other and what the creators have placed in your path. You use magic and swords, and humanoids of various backgrounds.

So now I’m tired of WoW, mostly sick of the people and the endless grind. After quitting, I was directed to Warhammer, another MMO. I was skeptical at first and had to watch a few trailers before I’d jump in. Once onboard, I was hooked.

WAR has the same interface as WoW – smart business tactics there. WAR takes the grind out of the game, no more annoying drop rates, no more crafting useless items, and there are many other “no mores”. Every career is unique and every race follows suit. From what I hear from the diehards, the Warhammer storyline was influential in developing WoW.

It’s just fun. You can do all the stuff you like to do and not have to spend countless hours doing things you don’t like to do. The Realm versus Realm (RvR as opposed to PvP) battles are not dominated by gear, or one or two people. They are huge battles with many players, of many levels, all contributing! I’ve been in battles with over 100 people, how awesome is that? Try your hand at defending a keep or taking one over, totally enjoyable.

Needless to say, I like WAR. What really drew me to the game was a couple of the game trailers. You can find them on the website listed below (I wasn’t able to embed them easily). Though their titles aren’t exciting, their content is: “The new WAR cinematic trailer” and “The WAR cinematic trailer”. Excruciatingly awesome! Don’t get hooked!

    Boy would I like to. But having only 34 minutes of free time each week doesn’t lend itself well to MMORPG’ing. For shame.
