    Tell me about it, sold so fast round here there was no stock left so I ended up paying full whack for it from EA's online store and buying a digital download version.

    Re: News - WAR Online becomes fastest selling MMO ever

    So what it sold half a million in first week. Its just a headline grabber and nothing else. Any MMO lives and dies by its user base. Considering the game breaking bugs, lack of active support, poor client performance, i'll be interested to see their sub figures in 3 & 6 months time. Considering that WoTLK is out in November and that many WoW players were using WAR as an alternative until the expansion if they can keep their numbers up then there may be hope for WAR. The next couple of months are going to be interesting for Mythic.

    From all the issues i had with this game and with GOA i will not be putting any money into Mythic/GOA, the term couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery comes to mind.

    Personally, after the open beta problems, I have not had any real problems. Great game, good community and does have less of the grind than I experienced in WoW. Also much better for casual play.
    Not around too often!

    Zero problems here also. good to see it's selling well, I think I'll be playing this for a long time to come

    Not for Euro release it wasn't. Have no info concerning the WoW US release. You can't get any worse than the WAR release for me. Hope it runs better for you than it did for me. Out of all the MMO's that i've tried this has been the worst experience.

    In terms of ingame that may be true. But perhaps they should try and fix the issues currently plaguing some players and actually give out information that they are looking at these. Instead very little has been released concerning the CTD's, installing issues, black screen of death. Yes a "hotfix" was launched last week to try to solve some of these, but looking around its not fixed for everyone.

    Lots of people are already calling it one of the buggiest games ever. I'd agree.

    I'll be honest and say that i've never had any issues before (with newly released games) until this game. Heck i had less hassle when i was a member of a BF1942 mod team, and that's saying something. What i expect from a game may be higher than most, but i won't put up with crap. I shouldn't be expected to. But for some reason its expected, i personally think its bloody piss poor that we have to.

    This is true, i used to get the black screen bug often and on a realm with a queue this was annoying to say the least, if you use windowed mode at full resolution you can alt-tab as much as you want without black screen. The crash to desktop that leaves no error message on the other hand i still get 1 every time I play, it shouldn't happen but I'm still enjoying the game.

    I alt tab mine all the time and must say I haven't come across the black screen issue at all. Guess I shouldn't curse it.

    Not sure, i never went retail with Conan, but some people have commented that it would take a lot to be that bad, and Mythic are close.

    I could never do that. Would lock up on me, then have to Ctrl-alt-tab and shut down WAR that way. The other black screen of death is when the monitor is shut down (power save mode) can still hear sound, but there is no way out other than a hard shut down. And my raid array doesn't like that one little bit. One major reason why i cancelled my CE Pre-order.
