Warhammer Online is really good.

I played Warhammer Online at PAX for about 20 minutes,what i played,i really liked,the characters look alot better than WoW and it's more interactive than WoW aswell,also it does a way better job of telling a story than WoW does.I highly recomend this game to anyone who likes MMORG's.The only reason it's not a WoW killer is because people don't want it to be.It's very very good,i suggest to any of you out there playing WoW,that you at least give it a try,i think you will be pleasantly surprised.

I don't doubt it. I would be getting it at launch if I didn't have to boot my macbook into windows to play it.

I heard nothing but praise for Age of Conan that it was the "wow killer" after it was released. Now everyone hates it.

I think its too early to call it.

From the people in the forums who never played it and were judging it off screenshots, yeah...
It was a great game at first, but it lacked content and was full of bugs.  As for WAR, the NDA was lifted so all of us closed beta testers could talk, and I can say it's an awesome game, I love open field RvR.  People played Mythic's other MMORPG, Dark Age of Camelot (this game had massive RvR battles as well) for years and years.  They know what they're doing by now.  People have been playing the beta since the beginning and still enjoy it, even in beta it does not lack content and by now there are few bugs.

Oh, and by the way, I'm not saying it's going to be a "wow killer".  That game is too huge, it's so well known it's like google or youtube.  I just think WAR is a very good game even in beta, and unless they somehow screw it up before launch, it will do just fine.

WAR looks a lot more fun than the piece of fail that is AOC. I can't wait. I doubt it will be a wow killer, that term is so stupid anyways, but it will do fine. Again, I can't wait for it to release!

The only thing I took away from this thread was the word 'WoW'.

Keep in mind, age of conan was already really unpolished and unbalanced in the beta. Warhammer has been considered "Extremely polished", for about 10 months.

I'm looking forward to the open beta tomorrow.  I hope you guys are right about it kicking ass, because while I got my moneys worth from AoC, I really want to play an MMO for more than a couple months.

apart from some pretty annoying bugs with ranged mobs and the issue of out-of-the-way PQ's being totally ignored, WAR is pretty damn awesome.

I like the out of the way PQ's.  That way you can get 5 other guildies together and grind renown, and help gear your people up.

I've leveled 3 classes up to level 6 (just playing around with classes) and aside from a few bugs, I've loved everything about the game.  My favorite thing about the game is the way the RVR feels.  Straight from the beginning, you are thrown into a huge conflict.  You actually know why you are fighting the other faction which makes the RVR so awesome!
