Warhammer is the Detroit of MMOs

-The Importance of the “thing”- was the original title/topic, but things evolved towards the end and I don’t feel like changing shit around again. It’s time for my weekly GD post already. lol  Objectives in PvP that don’t have much to do with crushing in a skull or putting the sharp end of my buisness…

Power Escalation

As the era of WAR post-1.4 comes into full bloom the battlefields are being saturated more and more fully by a class of player that is wearing Sovereign as a baseline for competition. My time in-game has been limited as there’s been a couple dozen other distractions between work, personal life, and non-WAR gaming. However,…

Casual Attraction or Attracting Casuals

Killing for the sake of killing only goes so far in any game. In my humble opinion, killing players for an endless amount of time for the sake of resetting the playground in neither persons favor appears to be a grind on the path to the last few bits of progression oriented gear. What alleviates…

It’s a double entendre as well, see not only can they effectively heal a whole group, but that’s about the number of players they can ignore in combat as well. Pretty cool I think. At least, they can if they’re guarded and…

Taking Mythic Steps

Small, frequent, reversible changes. Each one of these things is really important. The WP/DoK change, regardless of negative sentiment is actually quite small, one ability nerfed, one slightly buffed. Sure it has a large effect in the scheme of things, but it never should have been at that point. Just like BW/Sorc has been nerfed…
