Since completing the move, my interest in playing WoW has been pretty low. Hopefully it’ll pick back up (I suspect it will,) but in the meantime I decided to activate a Warhammer Online time card that I’d been siting on for quite a while, having picked it up on the cheap from Circuit City’s going out of business sale.
As is my usual practice, I’ve started new characters rather than picking back up with my old ones. The initial impression is that it’s pretty much the same game, although some early-Chapter Public Quests have been modified to require fewer players, some new ones appear to have been added, and
The big news, though, is that at least during peak hours, actual RvR appears to be happening in both the “open” world in in scenarios. Possibly this is due to the latest round of server merges which have the game down to 9 servers (and, I strongly suspect although Mythic hasn’t announced any such thing, about 125-150K subscribers.) As some may recall, my biggest problem with the game was the fact that no form of PvP was actually happening last time I checked, so I’m having fun, although we’ll see how long it lasts. Hopefully a while – I’d like to feel like I got a proper amount of play out of a 60-day card instead of abandoning the game after a week like last time.
