It seems no matter how much advertising, effort, or player time that’s put into Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning, EA is forced to slowly shut down the servers and push players out. Instead of trying to revamp the game, change the subscription to a free-to-play model, or simply let it be, they want to end it.
While it doesn’t even take a former EA employee who worked on WAR to tell you that the game had some problems, it still deserved a little more time.
Going from an already measly four servers to play on, EA announced that they are planning to shut two of them down (but don’t worry – they are allowing free transfers off those servers). In other words, for a game that is struggling as it is, they are limiting any current or new player to two servers!
Say what you will, but this is surely a sign that EA will shut down the game completely, speeding it’s already heavy momentum to MMO heaven.
