This project is going rather well. www.returnofreckoning.com
First and foremost, this is an ALPHA private server. There are a LOT of things that do not work currently. It’s also hosted in EU, so there’s some slight lag and mob pathing is a little funky. There is a handful of dedicated developers that work on the game, along with volunteer positions. Scenarios and RvR are the core focus of the game right now. All the classes are fully functional with a handful of necessary changes.
Being in an Alpha state, there’s tons of things that don’t work, and even the initial setup/install is challenging for many. If you’re a hardcore WAR fan however, this is the best we have right now. It’s getting better all the time.
Of course, I joined the fray. The current Live Event has a handful of quests that I wrote dialog for in true Warhammer fashion, hopefully it’s well received and I’ll have a chance to do more in the near future. Needless to say it’s been eating up quite a bit of my spare time. Very satisfying to give back to a community that I thought was dead and gone. The forums are active and the servers are strong and healthy (the cap is being increased to 350 players in the near future). Stress tests have gone exceptionally well, and I daresay they do a better job than Mythic managed in the past.
This has been a lot of fun, despite the buggy nature of the game, and I’m very excited to get involved and help it grow.
