Will Halloween bring OpenRvR Love to WAR?

So over at the Herald Associate Producer Mark Davis brags talks a bit about how some of his ideas made it into Warhammer. It’s a fun enough read but then we get to this:

In the skirmish areas around the entire world during the Halloween holiday, there will be boss monsters lurking for players to kill. They’ll have cool loot on them, of course, so players from both sides will want to take them down. I’m sure Order and Destruction will play nicely with each other and share equally with each other for the spoils of the fight – yeah right!

Yeah right, indeed! Will this be enough to coax people out of the scenario queues? What will it be like, trying to take down a boss monster while also defending yourself from incoming players from the other side. Will we be able to “ninja” the boss, letting the other side weaken it (and the boss weaken them) before we sweep in to obliterate both players and boss at once? Will there be stand-offs with both sides waiting for the other to attack the Boss?

Lots of possibilities here. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, thinking about getting the chance to slaughter (and be slaughtered) in celebration of Witching Night!

In the meantime, Ysh had a great post on PvE up at Stylish Corpse, with Thallian, Smaken and I commenting so far. There’s the beginnings of a good conversation over there, so check it out. I hear Ysh is serving hot mulled cider in honor of the season. Presumably she spikes it with rum….

  1. The rum thing is pure fabrication. Mine! My preciousssss!

    Oddly enough it’s the only alcohol I have in the house right now. Oh, except wine, but since I’m French and wine is *cough* for cooking, it doesn’t count. 😉

  2. Hi Pete-I don’t know if you remember me from NaNo a couple of years ago.

    Wanted to know if you’re doing it again this year. Sorry that this is off topic but wasn’t sure how else to get a hold of you!

  3. Chrisd, you always think I won’t remember you! 🙂 Of course I do! I’m going to head over to your multiply page to respond though.
