Movin’ on up

Monday, October 27th, 2008

I haven’t really connected in this blog. There have been a whole slew of issues that I haven’t been able to get past and largest of those is the name. I haven’t actively played my priest in quite a long time and it will probably never be my main again. I picked up a more future-proof name and hop to be at that blog a long time.

I’ll be posting here from now on.

The Twisted Nether – now with more vitamin D!

As far as Wow is concerned, I’m aimlessly floating in the nether. I’ve been playing Warhammer since it’s release and I think it has a huge amount of potential.

My main issue with Warhammer is I still find alot of things about it quite buggy.
Warhammer also has to contend with being a good game and keeping their population from slipping away to WotLK. To be 100% honest, I don’t know if it can.
I think a part of Warhammer’s success is where the WoW life cycle was upon it’s debut.
In WoW right now there are no new developments and no real changes to look forward to until wrath; leaving a mass of players immensely excited about what it will be, but not what it is until then.
Except for those few guilds that are really trying to down Illidan or Kil’Jaeden before wrath, raiding as a whole seems to be falling apart on most servers.
I believe many dissatisfied, bored and open minded wow players installed Warhammer and are playing it in the interim, but a WoW player is not necessarily an general MMO player. When the siren call of Wrath of the Lich King releases I think that will give us a true idea of what the actual Warhammer population is.
I plan on stoping my Warhammer account once 3.0 is released, but I don’t believe I’m done with it all together. A good buddy of mine, Witchcraft, always argues that judging a game on release is not always accurate because 5 months down the line, it’s post launch improvements could make the game amazing.

Warhammer seems off to a good start. Even though I’m taking a break from it now I do look forward to returning and seeing what the game really develops into.
