My question is, what is MMO about this? 6v6v6 that's 18 people. If it's just PVP....I don't see how it's "massive".

They're not claiming it's an MMO... they're claiming it's a "new online game" that is F2P.

Basically... it looks like they ripped out what they thought was the "most fun" from the Warhammer MMO... and slapped it up as an individual online game.

It was probably easier and cheaper to do that, than to convert the whole MMO into a F2P game with a proper store.

That said... I bet it will still suck. Same buggy engine... same lame developers. (Even if they were renamed to Bioware)
