To retrieve ones password, you need to contact "customer support". Do you see any "customer support" on the war-europe.com page? I sure don't.
And the "Register a code" page is such a joke, as you can enter any bogus details and it will still complete, like this:
How good is WAR's PVE? I really don't care about PVP that much, my interest is basically individual & cooperative pve.
So far, the main innovations have been:
Public quests - these are outdoor events on timers that reward overall contribution to the event.
Ridiculously easy grouping - you can make your party public and all people have to do is type /join you or choose your party from a menu. If you're not the group leader and you /invite someone, the leader gets a popup asking to confirm the invite. Party leaders can merge parties directly.
Tome of Knowledge - records everything you do and contains the lore of the game. Honestly this feature is above and beyond.
The game really is centered around being at war with factional enemies though. Player characters are basically military recruits.
I cant belive you've not heard of this .. the marketing of the game has been INTENSE on any site that has anything to do with gaming/MMO/RPG's ... I've been in closed beta with this game for the past 6 months ... its polished beyond what wow was ( was closed beta tester for wow as well ) at this stage of the game .... definalty worth checking out ... I just couldnt see myself leveling another 10 levels, new gear .. new rep ... was fun .. but for me, wow has run its course

You actually make me wanna play this game and so far none of the marketing from EA has good effort :p
So is this game out yet or not I heard there is some early release thing going on so is it open to the general public now? I was expecting more of a fanfair if it was to be honest.
I am playing on Order side on Volkmar (character = Ring) server and on Phoenix Throne server (character = Dorrit). Phoenix Throne is a roleplay server, and mythic actually makes you click through another agreement related to roleplaying before you can start making characters. I think that's good. If you decide to play there, look me up.
There are basically two rulesets in WAR. There's Core, which means only a few designated Realm versus Realm zones automatically flag you. Every zone has the possibility of being held by either side, but characters are not automatically flagged at all times. If one side captures a zone, that side gets some nice buffs for the duration.
The other ruleset is "Open" which means everyone is flagged everywhere.
Volkmar and Phoenix Throne are both Core ruleset. As much as I like that you can level through PVP, I had enough of random ganking in WOW.
The game is certainly more polished now than WOW was at its launch (I started on day 2 of WOW after doing a little open beta.) There are annoyances and bugs like in any large piece of software. The fundamental design, though, is really nice.
