I thought I heard that Mythic announced they are also working on a 40K MMO after they release WH.

40K online could be... be... so... amazing. What are you? Oh, I'm a lvl 68 Hellfire Dreadnought with a twin-linked lascannon. Unfuckingbelievable.

Unfuckingbelievable. QFT.

I would sell both grandmas my parents and my wife for a good Warhammer 40k MMO with a pure PVP aspect.

What's vaporware? Rasa? Err, no it's in the beta stages and is looking good to ship this year.

From what I've seen the game play seems quite different from WoW, if anything it seemed a bit closer to Guild Wars' style. Of course that's all based on a video put together by the developers.

I do agree that it would be refreshing to see a sci-fi based MMO (a good one) or at least something different from orcs, elves and magic that seems to permeate the current market.

Tabula Rasa has the potential to be something different.

I might be mistaken but I could have sworn I heard about a 40K MMORPG in the works... of course if it's like all the others (which it will be) then it's going to suck.

They should've made Warhammer Online with Space Marines. It could've been like StarCraft Online.

UNFORTUNATELY, and I say that with utter seriousness, this is not WH40K Online. Just WH Online.

40K online could be... be... so... amazing. What are you? Oh, I'm a lvl 68 Hellfire Dreadnought with a twin-linked lascannon. Unfuckingbelievable.

I wouldn't call it a WoW clone, it's just DAoC ver 2.0.

I applied but could not upload the dxdiag.txt file. It kept telling me it was an invalid file, when of course its a perfectly good one. Dunno, maybe they have some kinks to work out in their signup process.

Yea, I got about halfway through the signup and just said "oh forget it". The MMO genre needs a major overhaul.

Peaked my interest a bit, then I read that they are using the same ol combat style as all of the rest.

No, you wouldn't want to do that guys.
