    I’m not surprised… I’m almost a bit relieved to know THE TRUTH. We know what numbers are out there, now frickin consolidate your damn servers already!

    I was talking about this (kind of one-sided, I think Mark was either not paying attention or not interested) with Mark on Monday night… the post-Christmas rush at Warhammer is done. When I sign on to the game, the “wait to log in” queues that were there in January no longer exist. People got the game for a gift, checked it out, and promptly moved back to Warcraft or something else entirely. (Probably LotRO. :P )

    That said, I still think we’re on a populated sever, but in our Tier 1 and 2 experiences, there aren’t a lot of other people on with us, or at least in the area. Most Public Quests are empty– and some of the PQs suck so I’m not surprised. But I was overjoyed this last Monday when a band of about 8 folks were doing this really lame PQ in Chrace– I finally got to run it a couple times, and it was fun. My hypothesis, though, is that all these other players on the server are up in Tier 4. They’re folks who got the game at launch and actually liked it enough to not quit, and they’re still playing– just beyond my reach. FOR NOW.

    I just think, in spite of a more polished launch and proceeding months than AoC, Lich King‘s release promptly stomped any chance for folks to give Warhammer more than a month’s try. Plus, the thematic similarities (and differences in polish; Warcraft’s had 4 flippin years) create more reasons for folks to dump Warhammer. Like so many other MMOs, if the player base didn’t explode right at launch, it’s not going to slowly grow over time. What we have is what we have, so I look forward to reaching level 20, 30, and so on, and then mercilessly smiting forces of Order with a lot more Chaos buddies.

    I can’t imagine EA or Mythic pulling the plug on this anytime soon, if gems like Vanguard are any measuring stick. We’ve got a good game here (those of us who like it) to keep us busy until, well, as usual, the next big thing. Be that Star Trek, Champions, Star Wars, APB, or that other Funcom game that at one time inspired me, I don’t know. But the good news for us flavor of the week MMO fans is there’s, currently, a lot to look forward to.

    Me? Still not going back to Warcraft, and definitely not gipping our new Warhammer listener friends to play WIZARD FLIPPIN 101, Jason. :P

    Hey, some people can’t handle the strategy of a W101 or an Atlantica Online. It’s much easier to spam hotkeys and AFK autoattack your way to fortune and fame.

    No cracking on Wizard 101, it’s actually kind of fun and innovative in some ways. (Yes, it’s innovative. Play it some and you’ll see what I mean) Also, gave me something to play with my nephews for a few weeks before they lost interest. It’s cute, it’s easy to teach new MMO players how to play and it’s rather safe for them to play.

    Yah it’s silly and totally going for the whole Harry Potter crowd, but you got to give it credit for what it tries to do.
