    What happened to Mythic turned out to be exactly what I feared when I heard that EA bought them out: they were going to be shut down and gutted eventually. The thing about WaR was that it was rushed and without several classes that were needed for balance.

    I'm inclined to say that this wasn't entirely EA's fault. Old Republic had a similar horrible start, but they found their footing after a free-to-play transition. For whatever reason, Games Workshop insisted that WAR never go free-to-play, and instead the hail mary to save the game was a baffling standalone moba based on scenario gameplay that would have given players benefits for having a WAR subscription.

    GW *does* seem to have an irrational hatred of their own customers, but it's also possible that going free-to-play would trigger a change in the way GW got paid for the use of the IP.

    Like, they only got paid a cut of subscriptions, but not any sort of in-game store. That would mean that one or both sides refused to rewrite the contract though.

    For all its flaws, I miss this game. I was an Ironbreaker who would team up with my buddies Witch Hunter. Throw in a Warrior Priest and the three of us in PvP could do so much damage to 2x our number. It was a lot of fun.

    Have you downloaded Return of Reckoning?

    I have. It's not quite the same as I remember, though, although it's nice to see the visuals / the feel of the world again. It's also probably just MY memory being faulty, but the PQs seem easier than I remember, too.

    I was a witch hunter who ran into a korean ironbreaker. He could only really communicate with basic acronyms and single words of english, but it didn't matter. Both of us knew exactly how to play that team. We joined up initially because we ran into each other at a chokepoint in a big map and a fight broke out. I was supporting him, and in the middle of it he threw me a party invite. We proceeded to destroy basically everyone who came across us, probably killing about 15 people before we were finally ended. We ran back and did it again. How the renown flowed that day.

    After that I would party with him and eventually got invited into his korean quickmatch team, and it was a ball of fun. I've never done better with any other team. I don't think i ever really spoke properly to any of them, but all of us knew how to play. And that was all that was needed.
