I agree with Syncaine on WAR
Syncaine is an angry young man, whose semi-permanent rage and inbred hatred of World of Warcraft often prevents him from making reasonable blog posts. But in the rare cases when he doesn't blame WoW for everything which is wrong with every other game, I find myself agreeing with him. His post of what is wrong with Warhammer is spot on:
"Everything in the game is designed to prepare or filter you into RvR, ESPECIALLY the end-game city RvR, and despite almost everyone agreeing that it’s the weakest part of the game, it does not make the list of issues with WAR? When people think of WAR, they think RvR. When the RvR is broken, is it any wonder your game is struggling?"The whole game of Warhammer Online is designed around the idea that people will love doing RvR as endgame, and that simply isn't the case. Now I better stop this post, because otherwise we'll come to the point where I say that for mass market appeal you don't want any form of PvP as endgame, and Syncaine says that people would love an PvP endgame if it was just meaningful enough. Lets agree to disagree on that one.
