If you have read my blog for any length of time you may have noticed my posts don’t always follow the current stream of news and also tend to be positive (points to those who get the song reference). We all know what has gone on over the past week, so I don’t think I need to visit the subject as the internet is already filled with maggot ridden finger pointing. I do wonder though how many of those neutral MMO blogs who posted about the billing issue and if they also posted topics on what War has done right of the past few months. But I guess that’s just the nature of the stone throwing MMO community.
Anyway I am straying away from what I wanted to cover. As of late, it has been good to be a War player for the following reasons:
This has been a good move by Mythic to let you play the game in tier 1 for as long as you want. If you want more positivity head over to the following threads on the

New War bloggers
The amount of new arrivals to the War blogging community is excellent. I don’t think I have seen this many new faces since the WCPI started back in February of 2009. Have I missed any? Please comment if you have more.
The guys at Mythic yet again reached out to their community and invited them to ask questions about up and coming content. I really appreciate it, when they make the effort to interact with the community. We have seen it on a number of occasions from the 12 days of Mythic to the Land of the Dead blogger initiative, were they posted bones to players.
Additions to the game
Since around patch 1.3.2, we have seen a lot of positive steps in War’s game play and features.
Apprenticeship system to allow you to play with your friends.
War report which takes you to the action quicker.
Also we have lots of great stuff on the horizon, the city siege improvements for 1.3.5 look very exciting indeed. I thought they were just going to tweak and change the odd thing. But they look to be far reaching.
If you have not already seen it, Mythic are also looking to bring back fortresses and will be looking for feedback from the players.
Imagine a world with RvR driven city sieges and new fortress mechanics together with the improvements we have seen of the past few months.
