    Luckily, emotes are just fluff and ultimately inconsequential when there's real content to do.
    Choice is always good. Emotes could be used ironically. Dancing was fine. There is rarely any point excluding random flavour from the game when it could be included. One thing WoW never really did realise is that players love customization. Why do you think the rarer pets etc. were so popular?

    People like to stand out.

    Warhammer doesn't really support that kind of random flavor though. I don't think British people dance at all, just make snarky comments or puns or thrash about on the ground.

    And that's what dyes and trophies are for.

    I like to blow kisses to, and salute my enemies in WoW, and the bow and /nod emotes are good.

    We don't respect the enemy.

    We ensure the enemy isn't ALIVE enough to worry about /nodding or /saluting to.

    You kill them, and then you start worrying about who's next to kill.

    That is all.

    Okay I am a big dumb lummox, but I gotta ask this.

    I pre-ordered the CE in full at my local Gamestop a month or two ago.

    What do I do now to play Beta

    Did they give you a card with three keys on it? If not, call and at least get the pre-order box.

    Gamestop messed up and did not give the CE people the CE rave card. So you can get into open beta if you can get a pre-order box.

    Yea, I did that a few days ago. Sorry to hear of another person in the same boat I'm in. Good luck getting the open beta box.

    Once you get it follow the instructions on the card to set up an account. Who knows, maybe you will be in the top 50k and get into the headstart or OB or whatever.

    Edit: Sorry for the horrible top of a page, someone post something more positive.

    Got my pre order codes all entered into the master account, was no trouble at all.

    Blizzard is going to have do a lot to top that one.

    I don't think they have to do a thing; the people who would buy a Blizzard CE wouldn't care about the WAR one, for the most part.

    WoW will put in one of their pre-painted miniature table top figures along with the manual on how to play. And then only the nerdyest, most loyal, paint covered waaaaghers will continue to buy GW's overpriced gray plastic things.

    The beta doesn't seem to be well communicated, or I'm missing something. Is there a link somewhere to the beta forums? Are we able to get into the forums, being part of the CE beta?

    Just looking to find some info about the login process and all.

    Open Beta
    Head Start
    Preorder

    As others have said no problem entering in my Key's. Does CE have separate keys for Head start and Items? I have SE obviously and my second key unlocked both Head Start and Preorder bonuses.

    That doesn't matter at all, plus these actually look better than most.

    What matters is the fact that more people would be willing to play table top games if they didn't have to spend tons of money AND time painting them. Look at how big Heroclix was and those figures are some of the worst pre-paints I've ever seen.

    Have to spend time painting them? You get to. That's half the hobby.

    I'm being a pedant though; I actually do understand the appeal, at least objectively. I just think they're crap and miss half the interesting part. Finishing an army is a hell of an achievement, even it takes 10+ years (like my skaven).

    A Warhammer army costs as much as like 3-5 video games. I have models I've been using for upwards of twelve or thirteen years now. Doesn't mean it's for everyone, but it's not really that expensive.
