It seems like Mythic’s Warhammer Online is dropping servers, and players, at an alarming rate. Today, Mythic announced another server merger, bringing the grand total down to just two servers from three. The two remaining servers are located in NA and one in the UK.
This latest merger comes only three months after Mythic closed down two other servers in December 2011, and still no announcement about changing to a free-to-play model.
I’m dumbfounded. What is Mythic doing? The only logical conclusion I can think of, is that they’re just planning on letting Warhammer Online die, which seems like a huge waste.
Being an ex-Warhammer Online player, I liked the game to some extent. My number one reason for playing it was for its PvP, but unfortunately for Mythic, the system was severely lacking. However it was still better than most theme-park MMORPGs even today. That was also three years ago, so either Mythic doesn’t believe their PvP system has improved much or they just don’t care and don’t want to spend the resources on it anymore.
If Warhammer Online went F2P, I’d go back in a heartbeat. Common Mythic, just do it.
