    Looks like you dont need to keep an active target ... more like in DAoC, you target and and then you dont need to think about keep the "crosshair" on the target

    ...hmmm, i was dissapointed, didn't really look that great at all...

    if you see wow ingame, every part of the world is great designed...
    Same as most of classic daoc..

    though SI isn't (too many land for nothing) had the same impression here

    It keeps reminding me of WoW, I know i'll get flamed for that but sorry ;/ Although the world and graphics better they are still not very distinctive from WoW's sorry fanbois. I know, I know thats the style of warhammer but many people will see this like WoW. I am sure it will be a fantastic game and play differently from WoW but none of us know that but visually I could have been seeing a new wow zone.

    Its like daoc in that you click something and thats that, you have it targetted, same as wow.

    However, its different from daoc in that far more care has gone into designing the area, lots of very cool stuff :D
    The gfx looks far better in the flesh as it were compared to on the video.

    Imagine wow gfx, but done with the sharp crispness of toa/si/catas etc and slightly better.
    Its like that, the sharpness and gfx quality of daoc, the gfx style of warhammer, which sadly was copied by wow.
    It lacks (in a good way) wows cartoony feel when you play it, as the gfx are that much less cartoony in some ways, so it feels more gritty and "realistic" :D However, its hard to bring that across in screenies that are only showing big poi's (points of interest) like the wall etc. When you're just running around the game world its quite clearly not wow. Its warhammer :D

    Its called NDA and Tillda isn't under an NDA anyway as he played(if I'm correct) at the WAR roadshow in good old Birmingham.

    So I'm sure he can answer those questions as best as he can 'if' he knows the answer.

    1. Is it more w0w or daoc?
    A mix of both, as i've said before, and other stuff made better. Think of the good things from wow; their quests, bits of their pve. Then think of the good bits of daoc; the rvr system(not, I hasten to add the NF zone, or bits like that). Then add in plenty of warhammer-ness. Take a daoc-ish graphic style, sharp, detailed, nice gfx, and merge that with the warhammer style and you get WAR

    2. The shiny stuff we see on ss's, is it like guildwars?
    What shiny stuff is this? and how do you mean is it like guildwars?

    3. Hows the pvp?/?
    Pvp was good, I played a goblin shaman and ran around kiting 2 dwarves and nearly killed them both! 1 v 1 was great fun. I played in a kinda capture the flag zone where theres a pillar you interact with (you see it in the video, although the capture timer has been sped up on it) and then your side owns the pillar and has to defend it from the other side. It was great fun.

    4. hows the pve??? (i know how it works but des it WORK?)
    Define work? It was fun, quests were good, killing mobs were fun, in that sense it worked fine.

    5. hows the moving arround? daoc like or more free? (strafe sidewards goes fast)
    More like daoc, I cant remember the stafe system specifically. The camera was more like wow in its movement, although i'm certain there are options to change it around.

    6. casting and mellee any good?
    Yes, I played an ork and dwarf melee thing, and an goblin caster. The melee was good fun, with cool style animations. Same for caster really cool spell effects, nice spells etc. They were both pretty ballanced imo at mob kill speed.

    7. are the tiers any fun?
    tiers? like like levels? or what?

    8. and the world arround you, is it SI like (good for xp but booorrriiiinnggg and wayyy to empty) or more campacorentin forrest / Camelot hills.
    Compared to the zones that were open, it was like neither, the zone design was more in the style of wow, with poi's all over the place, they generally felt very well designed and it flowed well from level to level.

    9. Did you use radar?
    No, just fly mode. :p Landscape is very purty :D

    Very nice post Tilda :) thanks for clearing it up, it's hard to see the graphics are crisper on the low quality youtube snippits I have to work from :p

    The armor, background, even the grass has some kind of reflection.. is that also the case in WARHAMMER?

    I mean, the fact that you enter a zone and you join the quest on THAT step, is that good or did it work bad?



    I ment, the leveling system ;)

    ...im sure there's something not legal in 'fly mode' :p



    (and many thanks for your answers:))

    Looks a bit RPG-lite to me. Don't get me wrong I like RPG-lites but that's not what I was hoping for from Warhammer. Was kinda hoping for DaoC2 in a way as I prefer the combat systems and stuff on that in PvP to any other.

    Will keep an eye on this game but looking like Conan or Vanguard has taken the lead for me.

    Anyone wanna borrow Beta account? :D (Gotta try out if there is someone generous with account)
    I want to test this game out.
     
  21. Tallen

    Tallen Fledgling Freddie

    Closed beta is for a select few, I don't even think they have started that yet tbh.

    Players saying they have played the game haven't actually played anything other than the E3 limited demo or similar limited demo version. What they mean is they have seen it and/or used the control a little bit, maybe fought a few things, but not much more.

    Wait till autumn 2007 (possibly August-September) and you might get in the open beta if your lucky. DAoC players may get into the open beta at the first tier, but thats still only a rumour.

    Err.. What was I thinking? :D
    Thanks for info anyways. ^^

    So the game scheduled for release in March 2007 isn't actual out till Christmas 2007? Share your information please.

    Personally I've abandoned Warhammer as my next game BUT the info is great and thank you very much for helping out - Cheers :)
     
  26. Tallen

    Tallen Fledgling Freddie

    March 2007 was never a realistic release date, and August-September is not really Christmas now is it ;)

    Thanks for posting Eble, I was about to post the same info so saved me a few minutes.

    Honest truth, no one really knows when it'll be released. Deadlines like this change all the time, but it'll be out in time for everyone to have gotten bored with Vanguard and to be in direct competition with AoC.

    RS|Phil One of Freddy's beloved

    Well, not really on topic but Warhammer's going after the WoW market from the look of it so won't be stealing people from Vanguard I expect.
     
  28. Tallen

    Tallen Fledgling Freddie

    There is a large "migrant" population of players who try the newest thing, get bored after a few months, then move onto the next one until they find something they like. It is these players i was referring too.
