That is pretty good news to hear. I guess PC gaming is dying and being replaced by MAC gaming, right? :P
In all seriousness though it is good to see the game branching out and showing some life. For awhile there I did wonder if things were going a little downhill for WAR, apparently I am wrong.
Just like you i have been meaning to resub to WAR again.
I just need that one thing to push me off the edge. >.<
I was super excited about this until I got the part where it's just for North America. Someone tell Paul Barnett to show a little love to his fellow countrymen that own Macs.
Carrie Gouskos is leading this project.
Yeah maybe i'll load War up again this weekend, i haven't played it since launch and i'm sure they've added a ton since then. Be interested to see whats changed.
I just don't have it in me for another medieval fantasy MMO.
Does the game run on a 9400M?
Maybe will give this another try. Played it at release, but now to play on my Mac, hmmmm.
MAC!, what is it good for, WAR!
WAR lost a lot of subs. They are trying to expand the audience.
I played it about a month after launch and fell in love with the PvP stuff. I've sort of been keeping up with the updates, and they seem to have improved a ton of things wrong with the game. I've been thinking about giving it another try for a long time now. Maybe that time will come again soon?
I really enjoyed the demo for the first few days. Amzing fun to be had but it all watered out very quickly which is a shame because I feel it had great ideas.
From what I hear War is on a slow decline, but maybe this will help out, they need to do what Age Of Conan did, wipe out a lot of there employee's and start over fresh, this sounds harsh but look what it did to Conan, thats a whole different game now.
That's strange because I'm in the UK and I'm patching it as I type :S ah well.
I really liked WAR when I played it, but it was dying when I was playing.
Whatever you do, don't play a Marauder. It's for your own protection.
Hmmmm, hopefully this will help out WAR and give Blizz a little competition on the Mac platform. A large reason for why WOW dominates the Mac is that there's really nothing else for it compete against there.
Gotta check this out (or at least try to), considering how much I was hyped for this game leading up to its launch.
But Jeff, John Hodgman represents the PC, remember? So the Mac version of Warhammer Online would feature LESS John Hodgman and MORE Justin Long.
To get any fun out of the game you need to make sure you roll on one of the higher pop servers. If you roll on Dark Crag then you will till find the early game (tiers1-3) to be populated and should get scenarios 24/7.
I've been trying to check out WAR for the last few days on my PC, but I just cannot get the game to work, at all. I made two different trial accounts and downloaded the client over and over, but it just doesn't work on my machine. I don't even get any error messages, and the tech support for the war-europe.com website is absolutely abysmal. Half the time, the website doesn't even work properly, and I don't have any other stability issues with my PC so I can only suppose that WAR doesn't have a big player base mainly due to technical issues (the forums are full of people wondering why the game doesn't work) and also the middling content that I've heard about. Guess I'll be getting that WoW sub after all then (also thinking about joining LotRO - the trial for that has been really good so far).
I played it in Beta on my Windows side but I knew I wouldn't buy it because it was Windows only. Loved the game, but now that it's Mac based I may have to get into it. Especially since AION has been giving me troubles getting into the Beta. :p
