War of the roses is for the most part dead (technically since the devs dont touch it). You can always find a game with 30 or so people but its really not enough. You're forced to join servers out of your region so your ping suffers. People will use this as an excuse when you kill them. The people who do still play have all figured out how to exploit through your blocks, and are some of the most toxic people ever. i'm not someone who played 5 hours and couldn't kill anyone. Honestly its not worth picking up.
The main and absolute winner for me is an awesome battle mechanic. It's hard to learn and master so first few hours you probably would be just useless piece of meat on legs. And it requires some effort to learn, but maaaaaaan when you finally hit this bloody knight in the face 'cause he left his visor open or you chop off head of this pesky archer it's soooo satisfying.
Also try to play with friends and not just running around but try to do some tactic fights with some thoughts and you'll have much more fun.
So if you're looking for some skillbased PVP action you should try this game.
If you only take one thing away from this review, let it be this: War of the Roses is filled with morons. The players, while overwhelmingly jobless, aren't even the least intelligent of the community. The developers couldn't figure out how to outsell Chivalry. I won't bother describing their stupidity... Just head to the forums. It's more of a see it to believe it kind of thing.
If you're an adult, don't even bother playing this crap...
My dislike comes from the following: The community is the worst I've ever seen in a game. Now, there are few players, most of them glitchers or cheaters. There are few maps in this game, and they are buggy! (You can get inside the walls of buildings in many of them; this is useful as an archer where you can shoot out, but enemies can't see in...) There are a few OP weapons that dominate the game.
If you're new, there's an absurd learning curve, and you'll get bullied and harrassed by those just above you endlessly.
DUEL SERVERS: I swear satan himself created these cesspools The flow chart of trolling is as follows: (arrows indicate trolling, spawn killing, and more!) bored level 60s (maxed) ---> everyone clanned players ---> major server wide fights due to people calling their friends low-level-clan (like GOH) players ---> new players wall archers ---> everyone admins ---> ban personal enemies high-level-clan players & their backup ---> 40s, 50s, 60s alts ---> everyone
Unless you're curious as to how a bunch of idiots can act when put in a 32 player lobby, you should pass on this one.
I honestly hope you don't get this ♥♥♥♥ing game.It's full of stupid inbreds ♥♥♥♥ing killing you for no ♥♥♥♥ing reason

Again Rase and Spartious I hope you die same medicine you spam in the box don't you
First of all . . . so little people play this game that you have to join servers that are not even in your region. Secondly . . . if you dont buy the game you cant modify a class, buy weapons, get decent weapons, ITS PAY 2 WIN Thirdly . . . its the buggiest "f2p" game ever. Fire arrows light you on fire with METAL armor while in the water. Fourth . . . its impossible to master when the majority that plays this game has bought it and is using crossbows, long swords, pikes, while you only have short swords, basic bow, terrible armor.
It has the potential to be a good game but sadly the Devs are greedy and they dont even fix bugs.
Played it before its not good to play if you don't have a professional gaming pc since it requires a good amount of fraps, a Normal Pc wont do so make sure your prepared to invest a decent Pcaround 500-799pounds or a Great video graphics card.
You can't play it with a mid-end pc, I played it with an old vid card and was really laggy. Now with a newer video card Im retrying. I liked the gameplay in it, although it seems to be like M&B Warband multiplayer with better graphics and some brutality (the execute thingie). Well it's good that it's like Warband's multiplayer as it is fun. and it's also free, altho a big part of the game requires your money, I'm not sure but to get better swords, bows, and to generally get a horse you need to pay, well correct me if Im wrong. (last time I played it was like a year after the release I guess and I write this now, two and a half years after the release so Im not sure how much of it had changed put aside me probably not remembering most things). In general it is fun if you like all those medieval things. although if you have money I wouldnt recommend to spend it here and instead get another game.
