So let’s talk Warhammer Online for a few minutes, shall we? The cult MMORPG ran for six years from 2008 to 2014, at which point EA Mythic shut it down. However, WAR has seen a strong revival over the past year thanks to the Return of Reckoning rogue server.
Those craving RvR combat in the Warhammer Fantasy universe have been flocking to the server, which has been boasting impressive concurrency numbers north of 3,000 in recent weeks. In fact, earlier this month the team had to upgrade its server hardware “to be able to increase [its] supported player count.”
The team has been pushing out several events (including a double XP weekend and a Return to Nordland live event) and patches. This weekend’s update includes the addition of kill collector quests. It should be noted that if you’re thinking about checking out Return of Reckoning, there is a forum devoted to providing new and returning players with helpful guides to get them into this MMO.
And if you need visual proof of the server’s popularity:
