This is an incredible game. From the moment I began to the very instance I've been locked in combat with High Elves. Of course I chose the Dark Elf Whych as my starting character. WAR plays fast, is easy to get into, and is action packed.
The PVP is incredible. You can deploy into team PVP scenarios, and the better you do for your side (Destruction versus Order) the greater the global rewards become for all of the online players in your area.
I also took a flight path to the true battle front of the game (Chaos versus Empire) and helped the forces of Destruction contest the borders against the Empire. There was roughly 90+ players actively contesting the borders in an eternal stalemate of combat. Each side pusing the other back far enough to see the Heavy Support weapons, turn tail and run.
The options for players to enjoy themselves are huge, because the game isn't just PVP.
There's plenty of side quests for non-competitive fluff exploration. There's also a new Public Quest system that allows you to enter a large area and raid with all of the other players inside the area without having to go through the hassle of forming a party.
I must admit, I've never played an MMO that got you so involved so quickly. While I enjoy WOW I just dont see it standing up to WAR. The time has finally come :D
