Took the day off of work to play. It's really quite amazing how much they have refined this game over the past 6 months. New content/ classes/ instances/ rewards.

The medallion purchasing system will be a blessing to many people as well. It's a nice alternative to grinding for epic loot.

Only real downside to this game is that the system requirements are relatively steep to see it in all it's glory. My rig is uber so it's not a problem for me, however, it does limit the userbase.

But man, the game is pretty w/ everything cranked up. They've done a beautiful job with the design.

As the dude above me said, medallions have been added and so have keep upgrades. This will add a lot to the RvR. Also alot of classes received much needed buffs like the Shaman, Sqig Herder and other destruction classes. Some Order classes were also buffed.

This is a big chunk of goodies.

Wasn't really necessary. And BW are overdue for a good beating w/ the nerf stick.

But other than that, the game has the most balanced PVP I've ever experienced. A skilled player can almost always kill an over-geared nub - regardless of class.

And large scale PVP battles are awesome too.

...and you are right about BWs. PVP is definately awesome in WAR. I recommend WoW and other MMOers to check it out. I think most would be pleasantly suprised.

I still miss City of Heroes.

I agree when it comes to The Sims Online. That game was really fun and nothing has even come close to it. I still crave a new Sims with online multiplayer. Blows my mind they haven't done anything like that since The Sims Online or even The Sims Bustin' Out on PS2.


Five Ambitious MMOs That Never Took Off

Kevin from Denkiphile: "The first I’d ever heard of Titan was at the height of my World of Warcraft career, which was also the same time that several games, touted as WoW-killers, came onto the market and failed miserably. It made sense to me at the time that the only thing that could kill WoW was Blizzard themselves, but this also eventually changed with the advent of session-based, microtransaction-supported games like League of Legends. Titan was supposed to revolutionize and revitalize the MMO genre, but it certainly was not the first to crash and burn before its first flight. Here are some MMOs whose ambitions flew them too close to the sun."

12 Dead Online Video Games That Should Never Have Ended

The closing of multiplayer services can happen for a number of reasons. Sometimes there just aren’t enough people using a product to justify keeping it running while in others it could be down to complicated legal wrangling, like expiring licensing agreements, or even a desire to bring out a new installment.

One thing is clear though – many of these discontinued games simply don’t deserve to die, to be cut down in their prime leaving players without a viable alternative and waste all that time the audience invested in them. With that in mind, this article will count down the 12 games least deserving of being shut down, the ones that players the world over wished had kept going.
