    Default Warhammer

    I've been thinking about re-subbing to Warhammer. I'm wondering from anyone who still plays how the population is doing? The reason I quit last time was because the population on my server (skull throne) was so low I couldn't get into a scenario or RvR for a week straight so I quit. If it's still like that, I'd rather not waste the $15. >.>

    Do not bother. The first 3 tiers are a blast, but tier 4 is completely ****ed. Unbalanced classes, weak end-game content, and rampant hacking makes the game pretty much unenjoyable.

    umm i played trial and in newby zone population wasnt that bad lol... but i think they have got rid of some servers so the population isnt quite so spread out... so i believe now it is more condensed in the servers they kept

    No clue about US servers, but the EU ones aren't doing rather well.

    It's not really worth it anymore.

    I think not. Even when it's f2p they won't attract more players.

    Everyone will go either BW or WP completely destroying orvr, or better said endgame.

    There are a few active US servers yet but that will end once Aion is released. Most of the population has already stated that they are leaving for that.

    Pretty much thesame in Europe. =/

    It's hard not to blame Mythic for the broken endgame.

    the best US server would have to be Iron Rock its pretty balanced on both sides or Phonix Throne other servers are dieing fast but alot of people are spaming forums all over the place for people to join iron rock so its population is healthy

    Well, it may be true that some of the US servers are merging, they are in no way unpopulated. All the teirs are fun and Its pretty easy to get to tear 4. The game is still amazing because of its PvP and now since more people are on their servers it gets better. And they art not just merging cause a bunch are low pop, its because there servers are more stable to hold more people.

    Completely the opposite on EU servers.

    They had to merge because the servers were low/low the whole time or medium/low // low/medium at evening only.

    The fact is that WAR is doing worse then AoC on launch right now and there is no way you can't ignore that.

    aoc had 700k at launch. every mmo besides wow is doing worse than aoc was at launch. war is still the second most popular mmo. the problem is war needs a really high population per server to be playable. most people level through sc's so you don't see many people out in the world, not to mention the server population is split in half for each faction.

    Actually they are merging because of low/low on many of the servers that have done so, thus far. The last few mergers were trying to balance out the leaving Destro population since most of the classes are horribly gimped compared to their order counterparts. Needless to say unless Mythic gets their game together it is not looking good. On the other hand blind fan boys will never actually see that.

    Surprisingly enough, FFXI is actually the second most popular MMO. It has something around 500k subs right now.

    BLAH BLAH

    Dont listen to anything these flamers are saying.

    JOIN A HIGH POP SERVER:
    Core: Iron Rock
    RvR: Any

    They also consolated more of the servers to increase population.

    Warhammer Online is only as good as the server your on. Though after the last merger i think it should be better.

    WAR is a dying game, it's the truth.
    Don't try it if you haven't play it before and don't start subbing again if you played it before.

    I still play the game, and most of the complaints in this thread are valid. The game is honestly not very good right now. Server populations aren't the problem, game mechanics are.

    Any Chance at you being specific.

    I play a 40 slayer SantyClause. Go look me up.

    Other characters msnewbooty, goodpuppy and a few others.
    What's your charcter name.
    and also what "game mechanics" issue you have that are so dire its killing the game for u.

    Server population has ALWAYS been the biggest issue, the games fun otherwise, and if ur on a high pop server u have no problems.

    But i'm seriously waiting for the mechanical flaws that kill the game.

    Worst thing about WAR for me was the fact that it lagged like hell when there was a massive battle, especially in keeps. It got close to unplayable, but that didn't really stop me.
