Inside information from the WAR Bureau - Black Orcs to remain ickle

OK it's not exactly devestating news, but it's a shame to hear Black Orcs won't be getting made bigger :(

It's a shame why? Well, if you're a Warhammer Lore Whore™ like me, then you'll know that Black Orcs are meant to be the biggest, meanest Orcs about. Certainly bigger than mere Choppas... Which just isn't the case in Warhammer Online. If Blorcs also looked like the big nasty buggers they're meant to be, perhaps more people would still be playing them. Actually, maybe that and if their mechanic didn't suck so badly that the class becomes unplayable with even the slighest bit of lag...

Annnnyways, this isn't something that's high on my personal "what Mythic should be doing" priority list, but it's a pity none the less.


  1. This is ofc true. Stoopid Orcs :P

  2. Another item Mythic mentioned (which was taken as a promise) that wasn't delivered.

    In the scheme of things, this is as low priority as I can think of. I work in software and it's difficult to juggle all the enhancement and break/fix issues and deliver them in a timely fashion.

    I'm sure this is on a list somewhere but with so many other higher-priority things -- plus the current state of the game and its dev team -- not sure that this will ever be seen.

  3. Do you remember this?

    WarCry: You have said that Chaos players will be able to change their looks over time as they mutate. The Greenskins will be able to add skulls to their look and grow. What will other races do as they mature?

    Richard Duffek: The Greenskins physically grow larger as they become more powerful. Dwarfs will see their beards get longer and more ornate. The Empire's strength will be physically illustrated by their equipment and gear. As they progress, they will gain access to bigger, meaner looking armor and equipment. As for the Elves, you'll just have to wait and see.

    I've seen that before and it sounded cool and would've been cool if it were in the game. But ... one of those things that went by the wayside.

    I would've loved to have been a fly on the wall for Mythic/EA status meetings to see where exactly all this went wrong.

  5. I wouldn't want to be at that meetings, it would of been a bloodbath after I was done.
