    Shockingly I can't seem to find anything through the search so I thought Id make this new thread for information, discussion etc.

    Closed Beta applications have opened today, just toddle over to http://www.war-europe.com/ and fill the gubbins is asks for, its all pretty easy. Then cross your fingers.

    If I have my way there will be an almighty EG guild on the side of destruction.

    Pity the post code bit doesn't seem to allow enough digits for a 7 character UK post code.

    I'll be joining. Can't do it at work though, needs computer info. Plus the gay postcode thing. This all bodes well!

    Signed up for this earlier. One thing I thought was neat was how they temporarily disabled site logins so that the rush for beta signups didn't take the site down totally.

    Blizzard could learn a thing or two from that. ;)

    Yeah seconding that, I think it might have something to do with GOA though.

    Always like reading through the news letters they send out.

    Signed up, eventually, once I'd got around their incredibly obtuse naming and password policies.

    Yeah, that did my head in too, it also bitched about my e-mail because i had a capital letter on it.

    The password one is at least two upper case, four lower case and two digits (i think?). I mean i understand that the system in place is dealing with money (or will when the game launches) but its over the top.

    FFXI is abit over the top in theirs also.

    Oh yeah, if we're all going to gang up or whatever, we should pick a side.

    Chaos sounds most fun I guess. Orcs are pretty cool* though.

    *as cool as anything Warhammer related can be.

    Im game for orcs too, the character models look really detailed on them. And just shouting WARRRGH! (or something) randomly appeals to my more base side.

    Lol, i know next to nothing about Warhammer really, games workshops are kind of a scary place full of odd people, but i loved that really old Dark Omen game and Dawn of War (i know thats 40k, but still warhammer) and thats all i know about it.

    Been ages since I've played any Warhammer, I do have a copy of the V1 white box ruleset somewhere abouts which is really old.

    /blows dust of V1 Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay rules book.

    Blimey that was newer than the original rules and it's still 1986...

    I vote chaos cause it's always been were the most interesting warhammer fluff has come from imho. I just dug out an old old warhammer novel from my shelves the other day 'Storm Warriors', was a great dark old fantasy yarn.

    I fancy the orks, never really liked Chaos to be honest. They always seemed to me to be like people who just tried too hard to be cool :p

    Well, why not take a vote on it when we know who's going to be playing?
