Default Warhammer Online - Age of Reckoning

Well beta test sign up has just begun this month and I was just wondering who here has been following and/or is looking forward to this? There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of discussion about it here so I thought I would start a thread. So feel free to discuss your likes and dislikes about it here.

Me personally, I'm very excited especially after viewing some of the latest podcasts explaining quests, RvR, and armour tiers.

Main Website:
http://www.warhammeronline.com

Podcasts:
http://herald.warhammeronline.com/podcast/index.php
Some really good stuff here especially 3,5,6,7.

To be honest i thought this looked pretty average until they got into the RvR and Quest podcasts.

It looks insanely fun.

For the heck of it, what did everyone put for: Why do you want to beta test our game?

My interest in this game is more the fact it's Warhammer and less for the fact it's an MMO. I'll be playing Chaos regardless. Any flavour of the tabletop game and I've always played Chaos.

just said I've been collecting the table-top game since I was 10 (got a good 4k in Games Workshop gear lying around at home) and just want to see how this game translates to an MMO. rock on!
