Are you aware that it’s been six and a half years since Warhammer Online ended its official run? What might be even more astounding to you is learning that the rogue server that picked up the WAR ball and ran with it started up a mere half-year after that sunset.
In fact, this week Return of Reckoning is celebrating its six-year anniversary of offering an online home to WAR players. The team crowed about this moment: “We have had deep battles with over 1,000 players in, almost 4,000 concurrently connected players, over 300,000 registered accounts, over 1,000,000 characters created, over 1,000,000 scenarios played, over 30,000,000 items, over 100,000,000 Tome of Knowledge unlocks and over 1,000,000,000 player kills.”
All of that calls for a celebration, don’t you think? The volunteer team is hosting an anniversary event and has added a new scenario to the game, the Twisting Tower. Are you feeling the call to WAAAGH! this week?
