I played the game and loved it for the first two months. But then it became meh, mythic keep adding PVE content in a game that should be RvR oriented and some classes remain pretty much useless -.-. When mark jacobs left the game started to take a nicer step to a loooong right road that should had be taken waaaaay before. We'll see .. but EA Announce wheel of time MMORPG so i sense a fund cut on Warhammer Online
I have yet to see anyone give a real reason as to why the game is so bad.
The major flaw i saw was the server population. Join Iron Rock, you'll be fine.
Also the new patch was an attempt to bring a new type of PvPvE into the mix, not just PVE.
Also maybe ur the newc****, read the patchnotes. The changed city seige to make PVE OPTIONAL~ hardly required.
I honestly don't lag. I have many characters across many tiers. Read a prior post for the name. Neither am i ever going to be a fanboy.
It's a pretty good mmo as far as the industry goes, and im just pointed out the baseleness in the coments of the forum.
So Why is it someone in this forum has to etiher be a fanboy or a flamer?

-Massive lag in large RvR battle, Mythic must have been thinking that everyone owned a super computer when they made the system.
-Server lag in large RvR battles, more than 50-60 on each side and let the delays begin!
-Terrible class balance, most of the order classes are mildly to majorly more powerful than their Destro counterpart. One clear example of this is the Disciple of Kain Vs. Warrior Priest. Yea Warrior Priest will win almost every time unless they suck.
-Along with that terrible class balance comes the fact many destro have quit or rerolled over the issues. The Destro that loved the game rerolled order and the other quit. There is still a Destro population on some servers but most have not been able to push to Altdorf in months because of the balance issues.
Could be a good game if the population was massive, but unfortunatly with each patch Mythic puts a nail into it's coffin.
Fixing major issues by ADDING PLAYER VERSUS ENVIROMENT/USELESS CONTENT instead of ACTUALLY FIXING IT.
Majority of the weapons ONLY accesable through PLAYER VERSUS ENVIROMENT.
The focus on this game is PLAYER VERSUS PLAYER and NOT PLAYER VERSUS ENVIROMENT.
Fanboy, you are trying to defend a lost case, which you cannot defend. Go back from where you came, which I presume is the rock under altdorfs palace gate and stay there.
So because i dont completely hate the game im a fanboy?
BTW the latest patch they are chaning the CitySeige PQ. Its PVP all the way now.
I don't know how u figure DOK would always beat WP That's pretty far fetched.
Lol, you guys are just flamers. Should I ignore how fun the game is and join the bandwagon of flamers? No thanks.
-I guarantee u the only reason why everyone on the forums are flaming is because the people who like this game wont be trolling, THEY ARE PLAYING THE GAME.
-Lets see when it goes live? Another baseless flame. The new city seige works wonderfully well. Great improvement.
- Doks playstill are more Offensive and WP are more defensive. WP cant 'easily' outheal a DOK; with the T3 orvr challice DOKs have no issue healing at all
- Your not flamers for ur opinion ur flamers for saying stuff like
"Fanboy, you are trying to defend a lost case, which you cannot defend. Go back from where you came, which I presume is the rock under altdorfs palace gate and stay there. "
That's a flame. Your a flamer. Ive never attacked anyone personally.
All im saying is the game isnt as bad as you guys make it out to be.
But dont take my word for it. Open up a 10 day free trial on IronRock sever and decide for urself.

And yes, it's still active till mid september.
Anyways, seems like we got off on the wrong way.
If you were playing lately on Karak Eight Peaks on my side, you'd understand my anger towards how the game is being run.
BW bomb squads in orvr everywhere, altdorf stage 2 and 3 bugged (same for IC). Server transfers did not only kill the server for destruction, but for order as well now. They even don't attack the forts anymore... they take the zone before the siege, come in once, throw a rock at the wall and go out again.
Destro hardly can get a whole WB together, while order runs rampant with at least 7+ wbs.
Mythic made BW and WP "more" powerfull then the destro equivalent because destro outnumbered order alot when war launched, they still are more powerfull then their destro counterparts, not as much, but they still are.
T3 scs, 2 WPs in it and we have a guaranteed lose. We lack the attacking powers to outdamage their heals, we need more then 4 people on them to get a WP down that only heals himself without help from others.
I didn't see order needed that much trouble yet to take down a DoK.
The stage 2 and 3 being contested is great, but it will probably take very long too, which will hold off alot of people back. The 2 hours stage 1 are boring enough as they are now.
Why not transfer out of Karak?
I will admit War is a dying game (ever since WOTLK).
But like i said the couple of balanced high population servers are still fun.
Im pretty sure outside of the top 4 populated server the game's a hot mess. I know i used to play on Monolith.
Anyways i already quit the game. It does get boring too fast, guess i'll be on rumble fighter till XIV!
Well history teaches us when warhammer offers server transfers it means they are getting ready to shut down the server.
That pretty much f*cked up the server and both destro and order are saying the server is in a bad shape.
It's getting better in orvr seeing we just hit 5stars again after 2 months being on 1 star.
Still, the damage is done and both sides have little faith in it being restored.
Actually its not that hard to take out a WP. I can do it with my WE using throat cutting and reducing their heals to 50% of normal. I can toe to toe a WP pretty easily. Often they will run from anyone who can silence or disable their healing. Dmg wise they are pretty fair considering they are a healer.
However you have to take into account that they are part of a WB which has more healers, tanks and DPS which can and will take YOU out before you get their healer.
As for the Destro side. Try chosen. At T2 I can use my chosen to tank around 5+ people at once all hitting me and they will barely hurt me at all. With a healer around I'm nearly unstoppable. Even to BW's which I just hop back and forth with elemental resist and respite so that as he hurts me, he hurts himself for over 100 dmg a cast + with me hitting him. BW's hate chosen.
and for the record I've seen and ran Destro WB's up to 3 full wb's in one go, owning t2's and t3's. We capped keeps in less than 3 mins. Regardless of order defending or not.
Actually when I played the game (when it came out) it lagged despite the system specs. I was in one of the biggest alliances on my server and everybody lagged. Had guildies that had PCs decked out with best graphic cards and they lagged more than me. It was random, and it sucked. But I love the game so meh.
