Ratboy's Warhammer Rant

Posted Tue, May 30, 2006 by Ethec

Ratboy says: WAR != WoW

Ratboy writes today about a subject that’s annoyed him ever since I heard Mythic was picking up the Warhammer License for an MMORPG. Warhammer Online IS NOT World of Warcraft. So here’s why…

With the buzz of E3 leaving my system, I have finally put fingers to keyboard in this article. Two things really set me off to write this article, the first of which, was upon returning from my trip to E3, I started reading the various online Warhammer Forums and found continual references to World of Warcraft in comparison to Warhammer Online. The second thing that pushed me to write about this topic was a comment made by Messiah at our interview with Mythic in which he referred to WAR as “World of Warhammer” (bad mistake and I still find myself wanting to send apology emails)… So without further ado “why Warhammer Online is NOT World of Warcraft”.

You can read the entire article at the Warhammer Online @ Ten Ton Hammer community site.
