  1. Flimgoblin

    Flimgoblin It's my birthday today!

    well assigning a server is different to being recommended :) recommendation is just for people who don't know which server to go on (plus I imagine 20 people won't make that much of a difference, so if they all go to the first server recommended...)
  2. Sharkith

    these numbers are not looking good from my perspective I am going to switch to empire I think...
  3. Flimgoblin

    Flimgoblin It's my birthday today!

    this is people who're rabid about the game well over 6 months before it's released...

    Joe public unwashed might well go for the Order side...

    In almost every other game, 'vanilla' humans are the most popular race. We'll see during beta how true that is for WAR.
  5. Sharkith

    Yeah I see what you mean but I can't help feeling that there is going to be that 'chaos' factor with WAR. After all DaoC was written up around 'Camelot' and Albion ended up with the numbers almost everywhere except Germany...
  6. Flimgoblin

    Flimgoblin It's my birthday today!

    Albion's the vanilla humans - 4 human races vs human/dwarf/kobold/troll vs human/elf/lurikeen/firbolg
  7. Sharkith

    Sharkith Can't get enough of FH

    I suppose - they did have Half Ogre's though.

    Like I said there will be a 'chaos' factor with this game. Although to be fair there is a very large market out there for this so the balance could be tipped. (hopefully)

    Mind you Film if your a dorf I would be enticed to come along and pull yer beard!!
  8. Flimgoblin

    Flimgoblin It's my birthday today!

    inconnu were added a year after release, half ogres another year after that... :)

    I'll be playing both sides but expect I'll end up a pure chaos type with only the odd jump to the other server to play an order alt.

    Only if u can play a Crossbow Chosen tho!
  10. Flimgoblin

    Flimgoblin It's my birthday today!

    mmmm crossbow chosen..

    Was thinking maybe a sorcerer but only ever use melee.
  11. AngelHeal

    :O ..use ur brain!!:p
  12. Aoami

    Aoami I am a FH squatter

    I've not played WoW personally but i know there they have 'Alliance' and 'Horde', which are not a million miles from Order and Chaos. I think if you look at the split there, you'd get a better picture. (I don't know what it is personally, theres a research project for you :p)
  13. Zelenna

    Zelenna Fledgling Freddie

    Can't decide between Highelf, Darkelf and Chaos, painted worth about 1000£ (total of all 3) of each of the armies.. :(
  14. Whisperess

    Unlike WoW, however - you have humans on both sides, as well as elves in WAR. Also, their PR is almost exclusively pushing Destruction. (case in point, the intro cinematic where Destruction is beating the snot out of Order). I think we'll see a much more balanced game when it comes to sides this time around.

    Which is good, really - because as fun as it might be to be the underdog; being a complete underdog - or Zerg Nation(tm) - isn't really fun in the long run.
  15. StyxScout

    StyxScout Fledgling Freddie

    Having just finished reading Gotrex and Felix (again) Im still sticking with a Dwarf.

    Warhammer Dwarf's have always been a great RP race.
  16. AngelHeal

    vanila? asin; daoc: celt, briton, and norse? in daoc it's all about stats imo.
  17. gunmannnnn

    gunmannnnn Fledgling Freddie

    probably Chaos for me (magus) (was gona try bright wizard to be empire but most of his abilities are dmg etc) i may have a chosen for alt:eek7:
  18. Aesgir

    Aesgir Loyal Freddie

    Definitely the stunties for me. You can't beat a mass of rampaging short angry guys with Hammers and Axes. Plus personally i think the Runepriest is the most interesting class listed so far.
  19. Rellik San

    Rellik San Fledgling Freddie

    Short guys for me, simply so I can play with my friends, though Orc on the side. :)
  20. Ogrelin Blodig

    Ogrelin Blodig One of Freddy's beloved

    (No lizardmen) They have to leave something for the expansions to come...
  21. headbuster

    headbuster Fledgling Freddie

    i wanna try Order - Dwarves first, then Destruction - Greenskins
  22. Raazaar

    Raazaar Fledgling Freddie

    Most likely greenskins, because everyone knows that GREEN IS BEST! :england:
  23. spondodge

    spondodge Fledgling Freddie

    Witch Hunter is only thing that draws me to Empire ;)


    Otherwise i'd go evil... always luv evil :)

    Probably Chaos...
  24. Crudity

    Crudity Fledgling Freddie

    sigh, I wish I could play a skaven, yes yes?
  25. rvn

    rvn One of Freddy's beloved

    Hard to decide what to play, don't want to play anything that ends up being majority of the server :) underdog for the win :)

    Goblins and Orcs seem cool tho (but all classes seem pretty solid, mythic quality so :) )
  26. Draig

    Draig Fledgling Freddie

    DE until they gimme a Skaven
  27. Crudity

    Crudity Fledgling Freddie

    Skaven ftw.
    Well if rats won't dig up to 2008 I will choose Dark Elves or Chaos
    'cause I'm pretty sure there will be bunch of greenskins already :p
  28. svartalf

    svartalf Can't get enough of FH

    I think they will have DEFINITELY spent a considerable amount of time pondering this, particularly the boss, Mark Jacobs. I slagged him off something rotten on the VN boards way back when, because of the terrible imbalance issues. Looking at the races, I think that they've done a cracking job of attracting the hardcore nerds to the dark side...

    ...[well that's not true. In beta you will still only have the hardcore fans, who are leaning towards destruction on most of the polls]...

    ... and the namby pamby softy Empire casuals will be totally battered by hardcore Chaos nerds when the game gets released. :)

    I have yet to decide whether I want to meet normal people online or win.

    SkarIronfist Fledgling Freddie

    Well one thing to be careful of is, if we have a DAOC server then it could be completely CHAOS/DESTRUCTION and we could end up with no one to fight.

    High/dark elf, untill they come with Eldar or necrons
