Warhammer Online: Wrath of Heroes
« on: February 05, 2012, 12:38:57 AM »
So there is a spin-off of the WHO in a form of MOBA (Massively Online Battle Arena), developed by BioWare Mythic, an EA Studio.

Basically they took what was the best in original WHO, remade it to be a 3 sided arenas and made a game out of this. It is now in a closed beta, but you are welcome to try those access sodes (they are in the open access on the internet so it is ok to post them here).
WOHM-58KF-2XGM-ZDX2
WOHG-Y4E5-QKX6-SZWD
Both keys are multi user.
go to https://wrathofheroes.warhammeronline.com/frontpage
and register up. If you have EA\Origin account, just use it there.

I like this game for how streamlined it is and how easy it is to play in fast paced pvp battlegrounds and have fun without needless grind for a gear.
I think this game has a potential.

As a sort-of second opinion after playing for a bit with Mironov, I have to say that I didn't really like the game, because it's essentially WAR stripped down to its bare essentials - and the shortcomings of WAR are much more apparent and much less justified here. I mean the controls, primarily: despite being basically very similar to TF2 and other class-based shooters in design, only with lots of "classes" (here represented by individual characters, around two dozen of them) and various skills/perks/howeverthosethingswerecalled instead of weapon and equipment choices, it still runs on a "target-and-activate" system most MMORPG's do.
Granted, it is well-made, and is probably the only game lately to offer three-team matches, but all things said, I'd prefer the more traditional, gameplay-wise, but better-controlling Bloodline Champions among similar games.

By the way, am I the only one to find trying to define otherwise pretty common games as a separate "MOBA" genre based only on them being multiplayer-only, and the acronym itself very silly-sounding?
