@Gizmo said:WAR should have gone F2P years ago, instead it is hovering on sub 100k subscribers. I'm guessing they(EA) will either pull the plug or go FTP with WAR once TOR is released.I'm guessing it's going to go f2p. Most of the guys that worked on WAR are working on SWTOR PVP anyway I believe.
The other half went to Trion Worlds / RIFT. Mythic as a company sadly is completely dissolved. Another great studio gobbled up by EA. I would love to get back into Warhammer and check out some of the changes, but due to EA's reputation, and mandatory Origin requirements looming around the corner, it's for the best I just cut all ties with EA and let it stay dead.
BTW the patch that killed Warhammer Online was the one that removed the NPCs from keeps. As if banging on undefended keeps was bad enough, when they took the NPCs away it just turned into a loot turntable where you'd go round and round without ever running into the other side for any real pvp. The system was designed to work, and we could see the potential, but it was designed around the game having a mid to high population. When the low pop couldn't sustain any action in the lakes, and the keeps were hollow objectives, the game was declared dead and everyone moved onto Rift or went back to WoW.
