Plunkbat servers crash in first 24 hours of 50 player deathmatch

Bluehole ran into a serious issue this week, as their servers crashed 24 hours into the return of their 50 player deathmatch mode. Playerunknown's Battlegrounds War was the temporary return of the team deathmatch from last month, which breaks from PUBG’s traditional ‘once you’re gone you’re gone’ structure and allows you to respawn. There are ten teams of five and everyone starts with top-tier loot.…

This War Of Mine Update 1.4 Improves Scenario Editor

This War Of Mine [official site] is a sobering experience. Like most of us, I've never been involved in an actual war, thus any knowledge I have regarding the atrocities of conflict has been accrued from modern media. This War Of Mine may be a fictional, video game take on these realities, but its Sims'-esque slant on war zone resource management delivers something which, at…

We’re Skaven, We’re Skaven!

Remember the above campaign we ran in the golden age of Rock Paper Shotgun? Well, in the most recent letter from the Mythic Producer Carrie Gouskos she revealed the coming of player controlled Skaven. Not as a faction, but in part of a new Skaven-themed Realm-versus-realm zone, where both Destruction and Order players get a chance to play THE MOST SPLENDID OF WARHAMMER RACES. This…

Consolvania’s Installation Problem Fixed!

Clearly the biggest news of the day is the fact Consolevania have managed to get their installation of WAR working after it not doing so last time. Which involved Project Lead Paul Barnett calling up and having a yabber at them, which I suspect is a technical support offer which won't be extended to the rest of WAR's playerbase. The full exchange is immortalised in…

Consolevania Goes To WAR in Series 4

Another one of our favourite things has sort of come back into life. We've only mentioned consolevania in passing before, but the web-TV show (which sprouted TV spin-off Videogaiden) has returned for a series 4. Except rather than their traditional shows, they're doing a rolling-feature model, with youtube videos added as and when they're finished. Thankfully, one of the first three is PC-game related, thus…

Warhammer Online, On The Road, Rocking Out

In a move that's a little less Led Zeppelin and inching into Spinal Tap territory, Mythic have done a punky-metal song about Warhammer and put together a video for it featuring footage from the last two years on the road. And it looks like this... Brief cameos of RPSers Matt Kumar (00:34) and myself (00:36). I'm having some manner of fit.

RPS Warhammer Guilds Update

About time for a general update on all things Guild Based and has generally been pillaging for over a week now. It's still on the ever-busy Karak Hirn. There's been a server cloning thing, which means that we could move the Guild, but general feeling is to stay at Karak - and discussed on the new Warhammer Guild Forums. Equally, Poisoned Sponge has actually got…

RPS Demands: Rats For The Rat Blog!

RPS is not unreasonable. We grasp why the starting races of Warhammer were chosen - three matched pairs of dark mirrors who have every reason to be at each others throats forever. We also know that Mythic's next step will be reintegrating the cut cities and classes, which we're pleased to hear will be totally free. We're fine with that. We understand. However, when all…

RPS WAR Super-Friends: The Formening: 5pm!

Edit - and...no. People - including us - are being thrown back to the login screen whenever we try to fly to the Inevitable City. Impossible City, more like. So we'll try again tomorrow. Sorry! To form the previously discussed guild, you need a party of six people in The Inevitable City. Alec, Me and Ollie Eurogamer aren't six people, no matter how hard we…

RPS Warhammer Guild Servers

Okay. The vote's over and we had a little think. There were so many people who actually voted on the EU thing, it is a bit tempting to do - as people have suggested - a guild on each side, for instant war. However, since voting isn't the same thing as actually playing, it's probably best if we concentrate our manpower to make guilds that…

Fighting In The WAR-Room: RPS Guild Decisions…

For a while we've been wanting to do some things with the splendid community of RPS folk, so... well, this is us trying. We're excited by Warhammer and figure it's one which people would find a ready-made mass of like minded people attractive to play alongside. One problem: we need to choose a "primary" side to be on. And since it's a time of experimentation,…

A Dirty Word

If you've been following the 200+ comments in the thread below our recent discussion of our experiences in the Warhammer Online closed beta, you'll have spotted that a vocal minority of the WAR community, having made their way here thanks to a link on the warhammeronline.com frontpage, are absolutely furious with us. All those that were simply critical remain, but there were at least another…

RPS Impressions: Warhammer Online Beta

This is not a review. It also isn't a verdict, or a judgement, or a rating, or anything of the sort. WAR isn't released yet, there'll likely be a fair few changes in the final game, elements of it won't be up and running properly until the servers are jam-packed, and without a doubt none of us have played enough of it to make a…
