Whether true or not, no one will care.
Just like people are already ripping on Warhammer Online for "copying" World of Warcraft's style.... when World of Warcraft copied Warhammer's style to begin with.
How did WoW copy Warhammer's style?
WoW did not copy Warhammers style at allreally. What it did do was take Warcraft and pu it into an MMO form. Warcraft was originally going to be a Warhammer game, but the owners of Warhammer backed out before release and Blizzard simply renamed everything and pushed forward. So Warcraft is essentially a huge rip off of Warhammer.
So, Warhammer has titans and demons? See...once again, HOW are they similiar...lore? classes? I'm not asking for the histroy...I know that, I'm asking about technically, how are the 2 the same? What's in WoW, that you see and it's like...that's STRAIGHT from Warhammer? That's what I've been trying to understand for a long time now, because I see nearly nothing....and I play WoW, and I'm in WAR's beta...I'm not seeing it.
Listen champ. I played Warcraft too (for two completely wasted years of my life), and I've played the Warhammer beta AND tabletop games. Was guildmaster of a guild in WoW, that at it's height, was 31st in the WORLD in terms of raid progress, both horde and alliance. Don't get your undies in a wad cause I said Warcraft ripped off Warhammer's art style and you can't see it.
The Warhammer 'universe' has been around for a long time, since the early 80's. In the 90's the only reason Warcraft was created was because Blizzard was turned down on their pitch to create a Warhammer video game.
All you have to do is look at some Warhammer game books and miniatures, and you can see where Warcraft got its influence for art style. Over time, Warcraft's artwork has evolved to be more vibrant and cartoonier than Warhammer's.
However, lots of people have played World of Warcraft, and not so many people are even aware that Warhammer was a tabletop game system or even existed before the 90's. These are the people that wrongly accuse Warhammer of ripping off Warcraft's graphic style. (Although they are certainly ripping off a lot of UI and gameplay conventions, that were in turned ripped off from other companies by Blizzard)
