Warhammer Online is pretty cool and its rather new in comparison to EVE or WoW. The game is focused around the war between Order (elves, dwarfs, human empire) and destruction (dark elves, greenskins and chaos).
You can level and gain gear by PvP and PvE, both exclusive or in a mix as you like. The gameplay allows to solo very well too. Grouping is pretty easy though (if a group or warband is public you can join them without needing an invite, this is the default). The lore is interesting too and it has some nice unique traits (public quests, the Tome of Knowledge...).
What I like especially is that team play and smart playing are rewarded. With a good duo or trio you can do content that is made for a full group or more. In comparison to Age of Conan where I could not reliable do group content that was gray con to me (i.e. I was level 40, the mobs were below or at level 30) and I had another level 40 with me. I get no xp for gray mobs, but they could still kill me cause like all group encounter mobs were "Elite" or "Boss" mobs. The "Champion" and "Hero" mobs in Warhammer are not as bad by a great margin.
Warhammer has some issues, afterall its really new and it was just patched to version 1.1a, but it certainly IS fun and casual friendly.
now if my Chosen was not the worst tank in the game since patch Id be a happy camper
I wouldn't suggesst Warhammer as the developers always mess up and make the game more favored for Order, leaving the Destruction community very much put off with the constant imbalances and mechanical flaws for Order Exploits.
Obviously you haven't played the game then and this is just your opinion. Put some good hours into the game and then say this same comment with any hint of honesty in it. I don't think that you can.
I got fed up with WoW PvP (which is one aspect that I love about MMO's) because higher level guys could just kill you and then wait for you to get back to your Char and then kill you again. A never-ending process that was stupid. In WAR, this can't happen. They have Tiers for each set of levels. ie levels 1-11 are tier 1, 12-21 are tier 2, etc. Now, you can only go into RvR or PvP areas that are within one tier of your current level. So a level 33 (or tier 3) player cannot go into a tier 1 area and just kill at random. As soon as that Char goes into the tier 1 area, he is turned into a chicken and gets killed rather easily. Also, once you die, you re-spawn back at the nearest camp and you don't have to chase down your body to re-spawn.
WAR plays a lot like WoW in some cases, but the graphics are a lot nicer and the play is alot smoother. Also, when you hit tier 2 and higher and you can start sieging Keeps and Towers...that is where the true genius in RvR comes into play. the other night, me and 7 others players (I knew none of them) formed a warband and sieged a keep. Once you kill all of the enemy soldiers, we had to build a battering ram to break down the door in order to get inside and kill the defenders. While we were breaking down the door, we were taking damage from boiling oil and filre being dropped on us from the walls of the keep.
On the other side, if you are defending the keep from attackers, you get to be the one dropping the burning oil, etc and the attackers. Overall, it is a great and fun game. AND THAT IS MY OPINION and I have put in a lot of game play hours into the game.
