Thizik and I played this. He played a Witch Elf and I played a Disciple of Khaine. I had fun, and I really enjoyed the PVP. Thizik was not a big fan of the PVE and quickly burned out. My connection (Comcast) drops too many packets for me to reasonably play this game. If anyone is interested in picking up my Collector's Edition, you should PM spiritplx!
Overall, if you like PVP, you will really enjoy Warhammer, but if you are looking for PVE, stick to WoW or EQ variants.
Was excited for this game and then I cancelled my sub after the free month. This game is amazing - first MMORPG I ever played that got less fun as you leveled up! I might have stayed if I could have locked my exp at Tier 1 or 2. Didn't help that I played a healer, started off badass and then could barely keep up with my role in Tier 4.
In WAR's defense, they are getting closer. Each patch makes it noticeably better, I've found. But as for PVE and grinding, it's just not that sort of game. I was hoping this would be my new main MMO, but EQ has its claws so deep in me that after two months of WAR I began searching for EMUs. Have yet to play SoD yet, but am waiting anxiously to get the anniversary edition in the mail and patch it up. If you want RvR, go WAR, but realize that that is what the game is all about. It almost doesn't even have an MMO feel to it, which I kinda think is going to be attractive to some non-traditional "MMO" players and unattractive to others who like the classics.
