Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    Witch Hunter, that's what.

    As soon as I'm assured that there's parity in the abilities of Witch Elves and Hunters, I shall roll one.

    My marauder hits like a truck.

    I've already switched from my Marauder to my Chosen. I think the percent of damage I'm losing is much less than the percent of survival I'm gaining.

    A much better IP and game mechanics focused more on easily accessible combat rather than relentless grinding.

    Also, the ability to go from 1-40 purely through PVP, which to me is a huge plus.

    I don't want to spend my time grinding on trolls or whatever, I just want to kill people.

    Oh ok. OMG I WANT THIS SO BAD BUT I'M ALREADY ESTABLISHED IN WOW AND ALL MY RL FRIENDS PLAY THAT AND I CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY FOR BOTH.

    P.S. Is this better than WoW? I bought AoC figuring it'd be cool alternative AND I WAS SO WRONG. I rephrase my question, after playing WoW will this game feel empty and hollow like AoC did?

    It borrows very heavily from WoW, but all the PVP aspects are executed exceedingly well compared to WoW. The PVE is a little lacking but serviceable.

    You'll definitely feel some deja vu, but it is an extremely polished game, particularly for having been out less than a week.

    I mentioned the IP, you get experience and bonus unlocks just for finding things. you have a book that as you explore the world the richly detailed history of the Warhammer universe is made available.

    somehow I get urked by that damn Tome of Knowledge, then again I really hate the Achievement systems games have these days.

    I fumed a small amount when I saw at the top of the screen: "TOME UNLOCK: You've unlocked 10 tome unlocks!"

    I find it different enough to be fresh and interesting. You may or may not agree, but for me it was worth the purchase price.

    haha, a friend of mine recently signed up for this game. He's all cool with it except he apparently has already pre-ordered the Collector's Edition for Wrath of the Lich King, along with two game cards for when it comes out.

    he's basically with everybody else who still plays WoW when he tell us that when it comes out, we'll see how it'll be different and awesome

    and we all just sorta facepalm

    I'm playing WAR now, but I'm pretty sure I'm going to go back to a focus on WoW when that expansion comes out.

    Seriously that is ass. Is the engine just not done yet or do you have your graphic settings on "ass".

    screenshot isnt the best but the graphics are pretty markedly better than WoW

    I kind of like WoW's design better but I mean they have a lot of time to add and improve content yet. Plus they give you cool shit at early levels instead of making you wait 60 levels before you get to see anything epic.

    WoW's style is cartoony and the engine is a bit lo-res by today's standards (it is 4 years old and the engine is really 2-3 years older than that) but I think it looks tremendously better than..... that. Maybe those screenshots just aren't that great.

    I'm gonna go hijack a postal truck tomorrow if they don't get my shit delivered back the whole 15 miles they drove it the wrong way this morning. Shit was sitting a few blocks away from me Friday at 9am and it still hasn't got to me.

    Next time Amazon tells me something qualifies for super-saver shipping I'm gonna send them a pipebomb.

    the screenshots suck

    graphically it is definitely more impressive than WoW, though I think WoW probably has the best visual design of any game on the market today. They do more with less than anyone else, so it's a tough standard to live up to. The engine itself is definitely superior though.

    Backwards go play Eve a bit if you want to talk about MMO graphics.

    Even with the old engine they beat WoW to death for making the most with old stuff

    In those RvR zones (that's where the biggest battles take place right?) is it just people fighting or are there NPCs as well?
