Personally, I won’t be playing Warhammer any time soon. I’m sure it’s a fine game, just not for me at the moment. I did try the beta for a little bit, certainly not long enough to come to any definitive conclusions as to its quality, and just couldn’t see myself wanting to continue.
It’s interesting watching these launches from the sidelines. Remember when Age of Conan was the greatest thing ever? Yeah, how’s it working out now?
My non-existent expertise on MMO launches tells me that the first week or two are filled with unbridled enthusiasm. It’s shiny, it’s new, it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. It’s only about two months down the line when lasting impressions are made.
In two months time, the long-awaited expansion for the 500-pound gorilla goes live.
