Medieval multiplayer combat sim War of the Roses is just days away from launch, and Paradox Interactive has something pretty special planned. The publisher has invited fans to tune into from 5:00PM GMT October 2 (alas! That’s around 1:00AM AEST) to a livestream hosted by senior producer Gordon Van Dyke. You’ll be able to ask questions about the game, and play with Van Dyke and Internet favourites Tejbz, Maven and 2GD once the launch ticks over.

The whole shebang will be broadcast on Paradox Interactive’s TwitchTV channel should you be suffering some decent post-long weekend insomnia.

Word of honest advice to anyone thinking of buying it. DONT BUY IT YET, the australian servers are a serious piece of crap and are always going down. and the main news that streams up the top goes along the lines of “if your servers are down dont get angry and take a break, it usually helps” im actually serious it says that.
so give it a month because its still a beta phase game its not actually full version all thats different is they added a few new colors ” whooptey doo”

good advice, this is a not a game that you can play with any sort of ping and hope to have a chance. tbh I don’t think there will be enough interest in the aussie serves to warrant a buy

 

Aussie servers are always full around 7PM, and being on a US server gives you an incredibly advantage if you’re using melee weapons (or I found anyway, got 22 kills on a US server and didn’t get taken down). This is an amazingly fun game, it’d be a shame not to get it, and its still in early release so they’re probably using it as a last minute fix.

 

The reason the servers are a problem is because they have got an ‘exclusive’ deal with a really bad game server hosting company, multiplayservers.com, who are a massive rip-off on price and have bad support and bad server CP.

 

Tried it, didn’t like it yet. Feels too arcadeish for me, guess I’ll just wait till Chivalry comes out.
