Why Are You Here?

I'm feeling a bit on the curious side here. What got you to start playing WAR? Are you a die-hard Warhammer fan and Dawn of War just wasn't cutting the mustard for you? Are you a hype gobbler/ compulsive MMO tourist. Did you want Dark Age of Camelot: Now With Squigs? Did the Free Trial hook you in (while also giving your friends precious, precious vanity pets)? Or were you a World Shaper who tested the game way back in beta?
I was a launch day buying, pre-launch hype-gobbler. I got especially enamored on WAR from Rock Paper Shotgun's coverage of the game. I had never played an MMO before, but all of a sudden, something just clicked in my mind and I had to try one out. I didn't want to start playing WoW because of the negative stigma that my circle of friends have for it (despite all of us having played every Blizzard game since Warcraft 2). So, on the word of RPS, WAR was my game of choice, and I haven't stopped since.


  1. Boyfriend noticed WAR before I did, and started reading the rumors, viewing the concept art, etc. Eventually I joined in on the fun. We were both looking for something to play together that wasn't WoW (or AoC, or Eve, or CoX, and so on). We pre-ordered collector's editions and the rest is history!

  2. I got into WAR because of the nature of my work. At the office, I have to scan through blogs, game news sites, etc. and I happened to come across a good sample of WAR blogs that hyped me.

    I'm also a pseudo fan of the series, even though I haven't actually played or read any of the novels.

  3. The power of WAR bloggers' enthusiasm has definitely made some converts. It definitely played a large part in hyping me up for WAR.

  4. I love Warhammer, and Warhammer 40k. I have a black legion chaos symbol tattooed on me. Thats how much I love it. So when the game came out it was like a dream came true.

  5. I've always loved Warhammer and did have the table top though didn't play it much. Keen and Graeve's blog mostly hyped me up for the game. They kind of fell off but I've stuck with it. I really enjoy the pvp and balance of it. I believe the game is still quite a bit buggy in a lot of ways but they are fixing things. I'm enjoying it still and it kept my interest so far longer than any other MMO besides wow.
