Warhammer Online - Rage post

Now, this post is more of a moan than anything else. Consider yourself warned!

A few years ago I played Warhammer Online but due to the countless bugs and severe lag issues even with all ports open and all technical support that internet could offer followed, I quit at level 20-something. Every few months I rejoin in the hope that it has been improved and fixed yet still after trying every workaround possible the game becomes unplayable with lag in any RvR (player versus player battlegrounds), which for those familier with the game is 99% of the content.



When the endless free trial came out I resubbed for probably the 5th time in the hopes I would have fun, but as soon as I progressed past the starting zone the world become absolutely empty. Last week I attempted to rejoin again with the "Return for 10 days free offer" and encountered numorous petty little problems that prevented me playing, my disk install was not now recognised as a client, the 10 days was not registered as reactivating my account therefore leaving me unable to patch after I downloaded the client seperately, they had renamed my username and neglected to inform me of such, and on and on.

So today I thought I would give the game one last go, after all it's not costing me anything with the free trial thing, I then attempt to make a brand new trial account to download the launcher (which won't actually download if your account isn't done right) yet everytime I click "Create" it simply refreshes the page.


You know what, I give up, I love the world and setting of Warhammer Online and really WANT to enjoy the game. Yet with quality control and the amount of hoops I must jump through being like this, no thanks. Mythic has just lost themselves a paying customer. Say what you like about WoW, but if I wanted to rejoin for Cataclysm (very unlikely), all I would have to do is buy the expansion, install, patch, job done.

For those waiting for my Monday Night Combat review, I had a few issues playing online last night along with a few little hiccups (bad server browser is bad), and so being the unbias and balanced writer that I am, will keep persevering until this evening before I give you my views on it.

Also much love to my followers as I am now over the great 100 mark. Woop.

Very frustrating when there are niggles like that. I got suckered into buying Assassin's Creed 2 in a Steam sale. I gave up on all the registration and bull-sh*t before ever getting to play. Life's too short.

I actually played the tabletop version of this game back in junior high. They had a computer based game a while back (looks like you played it too) but it was notorious for the issues you posted.

I have read this kind of complaints before. Such a shame, seems like a good game to me.

Eh, I agree with this, it was full of flops. Just not worth it. Good point about wow ^^ I quit it almost two years ago just before ulduar, however if I wanted to go back it would take me approximately 3-4 hours.
