For me, the WAR is over

This week, my Warhammer Online subscription expired.  After some thinking, I decided not to renew it.  This is a first in my 4.5 year history with WAR.  It was not an easy decision to come by as the game means a lot to me.  But given its current state, I made the decision not to re-subscribe.

The reason for this is rather simple though.  I don't feel Mythic is giving the game the support it needs.  The game recently lost its lead developer, Keaven.  That leaves one known developer to work on the game.  That is just not going to cut it.  I'm not trying to take anything away from Kevin, but WAR is a big game and needs a team.

Sadly, this also means I won't be supporting the Arsenal of WAR Item Database or the Career Builder any more.  The latter will probably become unavailable in the next month or two since I won't be paying for another years worth of service.

I will still be following WAR and posting news about it here.  Who knows, maybe Mythic will show that WAR is still a priority and I will resubscribe.
