I have been playing Holy War since the start of the first world. I joined about a
week after it was launched. My name is DonReality in most worlds,so any reviewer
might know me quite well enough.(From HW ofcourse)
Holy War is a fun game when you have good in-game friends and relations. The battle
features, are in fact one of the fun attributes of HolyWar BUT,it is also the source
Holy War has been flooded with cheaters.
The management is absolutely inept in managing security and exercising justice.
The management is very inconsistent with their rules and have developed a habit of
making impetuous decisions.
Such examples are:
Failure to conduct an investigation when someone has become subject of foulplay.
They just send a "Warning Report" usually with the content already describing what
punishment they have issued. This is ONE of the Major and key problems in HW
"Guilty until NOT proven innocent".
The management deals with problems very unprofessionally and are absolutely RUDE &
DISRESPECTFUL to their clients.
Speaking from a personal experience, I have become victim of their unprofessional
conduct, The management team conducted an investigation and found absolutely
nothing. I was sitting a friend (previously an enemy) who had tixxed his account
over the hundreds and joined my order. And yet, they believed and suspected that I
was running and created that account. For those that don't know what tixx are . Tixx
are premium tickets in HW which can be converted to gold or to extend premium
features to take advantage of some in-game features. Many people actually tix their
account by converting premium tickets into gold and then training their stats with
it. The HWT management came to the conclusion that there was indeed no major rule
breaking so closed the case. The next day, that matter had been spread so far that
some brought the topic up in the public SB. Considering the fact that I was innocent
I defended myself against those claims asking the management to clear my name but,
they ignored my request. (Probably due to the embarrassment) Hours later, an ADMIN
had me banned without any explanation, made my ban public throughout the entire
HWGameworld and deducted -5 stats. When asked what the reason behind it was, they
could NOT give an explanation. I went to appeal on the forums and asked the simple
question, even urging them to involve the entire community and point out my offense
(since they had already ridiculed me before thousands upon thousands of players),and
if it deserved to go on the "pillory" as they call it to put me there, they
After this incident I have always criticized them on their decision making. There
are many other players that have been unjustly treated and I am sure they would be
happy to share their heartfelt miserable experience.
Another major problem are the Moderators. Moderators are the gamers better said
Volunteers, and MANY moderators release private info to their in-game friends. You
would be surprised to know the amount of info another in-game player would know
about you. For instance if you send a complaint to the management team concerning
another, the offender gets to find out who actually reported it through "friends".
This means there's no CONFIDENTIALITY.
The MODERATORS/HWT are very bias/partial towards individual players. The
offenders,instigators are never put to question when there's a dispute between the
victim and the offender.
The management teams states, they don't come in between disputes. So if they don't
why bother punishing one(usually the victim) and let the real offenders go?All it
does is, it generates hostility,displeasure towards the management team. That is
where inconsistency plays its role.
As for the game itself. It's a fun game as I mentioned before but, with such an
indecent, unprofessional, rude customer support it makes it not worthwhile joining.
I have been a longterm player of HW and a continuous paying customer.
This game is very hostile, in short.Unless, you can handle the garbage thrown at
you, don't join.
Players take this game very personal,such as hating or disliking,mudslinging you
because you fought against them. Which is okay but, when one starts resorting to
profanity, and personal slanders in the public SB(shoutbox) you'll know that it's no
longer a game. Some people still play just to be on the nerves of the many
I run a very successful order/clan and am renown across all worlds just for being
me. Anyways, I repeat : Think twice before playing this game, try it out. But, as
soon as you notice a lil' conflict. Duck out!!!
I'm still playing because I'm hooked and I have spent quite alot of time on the
game, so leaving it will take some time :)
I RATE THE GAME A "3". Because there is no more fun in it, with the number of multi
-accounts flowing in the game, and rule inconsistencies,and sadly the biggest
A "3". Good luck to whoever that attempts to join this hostile gaming environment.
The game is/was fun but, irrespective if the management is horrible it sadly discredits the games integrity.
Improve management greatly and perhaps viewpoints might change.
