Blog Spotlight!

Filed under: wartalk — Alex @ 8:15 am

I’m going to revisit a past post topic here because the good news train just keeps on a chuggin’ (I really have no idea what that means) A few weeks ago I did a reactionary post to Andrew over at Shadow-war about a resurgence of players back to Warhammer. Well, this renaissance period isn’t even close to over. Since then we have seen the arrival of even more new blogs, and three of my favorites will be highlighted in this post.

First, KruelWAR. Kruelhand Stand is a rr7x Marauder over on Badlands, and a pretty good blogger to boot. His last few posts about dueling have been particularly enjoyable to me as I was once really into dueling. I did get a little chuckle out of this post, nothing condescending about it, but it’s interesting to see how we each are affected by the “grass is greener” syndrome. I would kill to see city sieges slow down on Gorfang and he would do the same just to see the inside of a stage 1 PQ. The blog is definitely solid and a good read, check it out!

Next up is Super Effective. Aptly titled because of the author’s super effective healing playstyle while on her Zealot, DoK, and even Magus. Which one is the Magus healing tree again? I really like the laid back tone of this blog. It’s fun to read and the way the author writes keeps each post interesting. Again, add this one to the RSS feed.

Finally, we have Blurring Shock. The author is a SM (I have nightmares about dueling your class, but I think we can get past that) on Karak-Azgal. Similar to many people recently, Aeoluw has recently returned to the game. A few of the most recent posts dealt with a pie chart divvying up the damage that his tank took during combat. I had never seen anything like this quantified before, so it was a very interesting read. Just like the other two, this is a blog you really need to check out. Keep on supporting the community.

When I wrote the first post on this blog back in May of last year, the WAR blogging community was dying fast. The blogs which originally got me interested in starting my own went under shortly after I started up. Now, in the second incarnation of WARgames, the exact opposite is happening. The community is being revitalized in the presence of a game that is miles ahead of anything we saw last year. It’s no where near perfect and can be insanely aggravating at times, but it’s still fun. A huge part of MMO’s is the community, and this game has a good one. That’s all for now, folks.



  1. Really appreciate the link, thanks Alex. I agree with you about the WAR community, it’s half the fun to me. Keep up the great blog!

    • Don’t mention it, I love talking about the community and supporting it. Thanks for the props, and the same goes to you!

  2. This resurgance has been crazy, and I’ve literally been unable to keep up with the rash of new-comers. It speaks of an amazing health and groundswell for the game.
