MMO Co-Opportunities Volume IV: Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning - Page 2

On the note of meeting new people, WAR provides some really great tools for finding parties or people to do stuff with. Whenever you form a party in WAR it’s defaulted to open (though you can make it an invite-only party whenever you wish), so other players can see if your party is doing the same thing as them, and then join up with you. Now you can search for open parties in any zone from anywhere you are in the world (previously you could only check for open parties in your current zone), so if you’re looking for a group around your level to do a PQ with, or a group to help you knock off a difficult quest, the searchable group interface may just be the thing you need. In addition, WAR has also added a constantly updating world-status tool called the War Report. The War Report details three or four events or statuses in each tier (four tiers in all, tier 1 being approximately levels/ranks 1-10, tier 2 ranks 11-20, etc.). Examples include tips such as where the highest population density currently is for that tier, or what PQ is currently receiving a lot of action, or what areas are hotly contested. If you don’t feel like running over, you can even directly port to the nearest warcamp or chapter hub of the event in question once every 8 hours. WAR may have a reduced player base from its launch, but the developers have certainly come up with some nice tools for making sure their players can find other players to do things with, which is extremely important in an MMO.
