Eternal Crusade unleashes an Ork waaagh! campaign

If there’s one thing that has always been associated with the Warhammer franchise, it’s the terrible and overwhelming crusades that its greenskins occasionally unleash. Eternal Crusade is in the midst of one of these right now, offering players an opportunity to experience a waaagh! up close and personal.

From now through April 23rd, players can take part in a new Ork campaign called “A New Waaagh!” Participants should be forewarned that it will most likely be loud and chaotic, because that’s just the way that the bloodthirsty Orks like it.

Players can follow the progress of the campaign over the next week, and when it concludes there might just be a reward waiting for all of those who survived.

So I downloaded this today and spent a couple hours trying to figure out what was what and playing a couple matches. It’s pretty opaque, and their very odd attempt at a tutorial area didn’t help at all. There seem to be various currencies to do or unlock various things, but none of that was explained anywhere in the game that I could find.

While the game looks okay the physics and controls left a bit to be desired. Just some odd choices such as having to jump forward with every melee attack unless you lock on to your target which puts you in a circular strafe mode around them. Whether you can climb on or over terrain obstacles is very hit or miss as well and you can’t just jump. You can do an evade maneuver or, if you are playing one of the premium classes of each race, you can use a jetpack/flight mode instead.

I may give it another go after I’ve read up on the game somewhere, but right now I’m just sort of scratching my head at not only the lack of useful information in the game but at some of the choices that were made in its development.

The two currencies are the points made in matches,requisition points, and then the RTC which is the real money currency(you get a few thousand after playing the campaigns I believe). Use the requisition to buy the crates from the Supply Drop part of the store and the RTC to buy the different weapon/armor skins or to unlock extra character slots.
Figuring the rest out is a matter of playing a lot and hoping that someone on the team is good at giving instructions

I put in about 4 more hours, this time with a couple friends that had already played a little bit. So they gave me a good idea of how all the basics work, gave me some useful tips, etc.

There’s really only one aspect of the game that bothers me at this point, and it’s the same thing that keeps me from doing PvP in most typical MMOs. The game has quite a bit of vertical progression in it. Gear and rank seem to greatly outweigh skill in deciding who lives and who dies. Almost everyone that killed me was of Champion or Legendary rank and could wade through my gunfire with little concern.

Now, that’s not necessarily a deal-breaker for me, I’m willing to put in my time and take my licks to get on par, as the game is fun overall and colorful. It does cause me concern in regards to the longevity of the game, because if almost everybody I’m encountering is of high rank that suggests to me that not many new people are trying the game. Or perhaps they quickly see how ineffective they are compared to the higher rank players and uninstall. But that’s just conjecture based on a pretty small sample of play.

The game intrigues me though so I’ll be playing it a bit more and reading up on weapons and such so as to spend my advancement points in at least a semi-informed manner.

Yeah the game is really…odd. There’s a lot that’s just “off” about it across the board. I found myself enjoying my early time in it (and I still enjoy it from time to time), but the game is a bit of a mess.

Things have slowly been improving, but at this rate it’ll likely be at least a few more years before it starts getting into a solid place.

So I take it this is still the half assed lobby brawler that it was before, filled with broken promises?

Pretty much yeah…I just got back from Adepticon and honestly I don’t think there has ever been a dev team that has been this hated by any group of people. I’m still holding out hope that the Rumored Relic 40K MMO isn’t vapor.

pretty much yeah. Keep giving free money to people that bought it already to try to bring them back but doesn’t seem like its working. You forgot to add that it has crappy audio too. Only game I have played in the last 10 years to devolves into static and no sounds at times and I have a sound blaster card for gods sake.
