Yesterday morning, WAR's 1.3.3 patch (called Retribution) went live.  I have been talking about it quite a bit, so I'll skip the rehash.  The big question is, how is the game now?  It is too early to make any big conclusions, but I am having a lot of fun.

Along with the 1.3.3 patch, they delivered a hot fix:

Fixed an issue that would sometimes reward Scenario Victory Points to the incorrect Realm.

This was a huge issue, as it made locking zones easier and caused more city sieges. 

Expedition Resources are now classified as Usable Equipment and can be properly filtered in the Auto Loot tab.

Yes!  No more loot windows for Expedition Resources.  This may be my favorite fix.  Well, that and the 'balancing' of Ravage.

Overall, the WAR Report is my favorite thing about 1.3.3.  If you like alts, this is a great tool as you can see at a glance where the action is.  On Badlands, it was easy to see that RvR was going on in all of the tiers.

I ended up playing my Engineer, Ironbreaker and Bright Wizard yesterday.  My BW is still rank 11 and hanging out in Tier 1. There were 50+ Order playing (during the afternoon) just in the default guild and most were low levels.  Some are likely trial accounts, but it is encouraging none the less.
