With one of the most robust backgrounds for any MMO game ever
created, Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning has potential to be the

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning boasts one of the

Decades worth of material has been published from Games Workshop
creating an entire universe that can easily fit inside a virtual world

an interesting question arises, how important is it to the average
player? Does it make or break a gaming experience? There appear to be
two sides to this coin, so let's start with the good.
