    HELP! What is that game?

    Hi All,

    Following on from a Diablo III conversation in our office this morning, a friend of mine is insisting that he installed Diablo II. I have never played Diablo II and believe he is referring to another MMO that we played very very briefly in which I played a spellcasting class that hovered on a strange-looking disk.

    To my knowledge I have only played World of Warcraft, Runes of Magic (boring, clunky), this mystery game I can't remember, Star Wars : The Old Republic and Diablo III (I've played other games too but I'm concentrating on RP fantasy games here).

    Here is my question: What in the seven flaming hells is the name of that game? I remember it being very briefly a threat to WoW until people played it and discovered that it was terrible. I know it is not Guild Wars and I know it was a game you purchased, but I cannot for the life of me remember the title. I thought it might have been Warhammer online but nothing I have seen of the Warhammer MMO games rings a bell. I also for some reason seem to think it began with B but this may be wrong too.

    So, can anyone help me identify this mystery game. All I remember is the weird hover-disks the spellcasters rode about on. They were horrible to control IIRC and were part of the reason I gave up after playing for about 5 minutes.

    Only two I can think you may mean was Aion/Rift? But never played them, so can't say about hover-disk thingys

    The only thing that springs to mind beginning with b is baldurs gate but i don't think that fits your description.

    Sorry, none of those. I swear it had something to do with Warhammer but I can't find anything in the Warhammer game set that matches it...

    I only remember Age of Conan being the 'threat' to WoW, it lasted about a month and everyone went back to WoW :P

    @sonofsanta I did think it might have been Age of Reckoning but I can't find any screenshots to prove it was the one I meant. I didn't think the name was that long either so perhaps it was another Warhammer game?

    A lot of the time it was just referred to as WAR, or Warhammer Online, maybe that's all you knew it as?

    There's not been any other online Warhammer games, not in the MMO style certainly... much as I loved Shadow of the Horned Rat it's probably not that you're thinking of

    I should clarify - specific screenshots of female magi riding the disks. Although I remember the game being a lot less detailed so I am not sure Age of Reckoning is old enough. I wondered about Wrath of Heroes but none of these titles rings a bell. I have asked LeBoyfriend to look out his disk if he nips home for lunch

    The only other fantasy MMOs I can think of are Lord of the Rings (unlikely to have flying discs) and Dungeons & Dragons Online (possible).

    It was 3D and 3rd Person, like WoW? And not isometric like Diablo III?

    Edit: Lineage II? Everquest II? They were quite early on and therefore rough looking. Although as ZeroHour says, WAR wasn't that pretty, and I certainly remember it being thoroughly dull and uninspiring despite having been championed as the next WoW-killer, whereas Lineage and Everquest predate WoW.

    Also: LoTRO and DDO are both free to play now so you could always give them a go later and see if they ring a bell. WAR has a free trial at the very least, so likewise, you could give it a look.

    Graphically WAR was pretty poor tbh.
