Pretend WAR re-review at

So has done a re-review of WAR. And unfortunately it's another one of those online reviewing mini-scandals where it's blatantly obvious that they didn't actually play the game. Factually incorrect left right and centre, it would seem the reviewer only played in tier 1, if he played the game at all. I could pick the whole thing apart, but I won't bother since Shadow-war has a done a cracking job already.

But before you suggest I'm being all fan boy about it, check out this one line in particular that shows without ANY doubt that the guy quite simply didn't play the game, didn't do his research and has no idea what he is talking about.

"The current Tier 4 End-Game events rarely occur, as they literally require hundreds of players to ‘lock in’ the four racial parings in order to conquer the opposing realm’s Capital City. "

LOL! So for the last 6 months or so we've been saying that city sieges happen far, far too often. I remember posting recently in fact about 6 in one day. So there is no way you can make that statement and claim to have played the game in tier 4. If you've not played tier 4 then you can not comment on the end game at all. His statement above is complete and utter bollocks and as such suggests the entire review was based on hearsay rather than gameplay (yikes they sucked, damn you reality turd TV). Oh and it's 3 racial pairings, not 4. Comedy gold.

As my regular readers will know, I'll happily give Mythic a hard time for the game's problems, but I wouldn't ever consider just making negative shit up or pretending to play if I wasn't. It's a shame that a website as renowned as has done so, I just hope he didn't get paid to do that pretend review.

PS just had this line pointed out to me: "On a personal note, I would love to see the inclusion of the Vampire Counts and Empire, for the sake of variety."
Dude, seriously... Empire are in the game and always have been :P
