CryEngine 3 powered action MMO Panzar Launches in Europe, Invites Players to Crush others like puny insects

When I first heard of the fantasy MMO Panzar I honestly had no idea what to expect. The name instantly reminds me of a Panzer which of course was a German armored tank during WW2, but Panzar apparently is the name for a PvP focused action MMO that features wizards, Orcs, Dwarves and nary a tank in sight.

The game sells itself as an action MMO, but lots of games do that nowadays. After further reading it appears the game is mainly focused on PvP with teams of 10 clashing in different strategic modes including Domination, King of the Hill, Siege, and a capture/defend mode where players must retrieve an artifact.

The early gameplay videos do remind me of a certain recently closed action "MMO" called Warhammer: Wrath of Heroes, but Panzar actually looks pretty good. Panzar Studio the development team behind Panzar apparently knows this too. They state:

"Panzar offers something its competitors cannot match: stunningly detailed battles in lush landscapes that crank the concept of high fantasy conflict to a new level of epicness, while the core gameplay links easy-to-learn mechanics with complex character advancement and impeccably balanced character class choices."

Panzar was originally launched in Russian last year where it attracted over a million players. This new version comes fully localized in English, German and French. Although the game's launch was limited to the EU, I was able to create an account and install the game without issue over here in the NA.

Check out the official cinematic trailer above which actually has graphics similar to what you can expect in the actual game (crazy I know). If you want to try Panzar out for yourself you can visit the official site here.

Side note: Did anyone notice the Orcs run like Gorillas?

The game doesn't look that promising. It's more or less a Wrath of Heroes rip-off with poor coding.

This game is the definition of P2Win, Retarded system, abuse at its best.
Pay for weapons, pay for crafting, pay for runes pay for everything, pay for emotes, pay for colours, you get NOTHING. Game ruined itself.
F2P people cant craft shit, you farm ur ass off for nothing because crafts fail most of the time... as said, abuse at its best. Not recommended.

THIS IS MOBA: MULTIPLYAER ONLINE BATTLE ARENA.
you do not need lanes. FPS is different because it is FIRST PERSON SHOOTER. YOU are stuck in the head of your character to play through several game modes. It is not an arena as FPS can include persistant worlds such as Planet Side 2 and Heroes and Generas. FPS is not a 1 -2 button game of spells, but bullets and warefare.
World of Tanks is more FPS / RTS than MOBA.
MOBA is arena, that is, you enter a small space of lanes, or paths to hold or defend territory. This game is MOBA as there are several paths, (the most popular the middle path) to hold the central core. There is death and respawn until the point is held the longest by one team. This is the same in LoL etc... you fight long enough to take the point of another team. BATTLE ARENA.
It is not surprising the mmobomb community is made up of brainless twits. Hence it's sad spiral off the chart of real mmorpg community. I said good day sir.

No this is not a moba. I would call it a gladiator battle ground team based game. It is by no means a mmorpg bot the character's progress like one. Different powers unlock as you level up. Still not my cup of tea but WAY better then any moba. I guess it's like a fps fantasy based on crack. XD. That's the only way i can describe it.

I just played this all day after I got the announce on massively.com. It is pure crap. It is MOBA. But less characters and emphasis on skills, and armor and weapon crafting. Each round gives materials. And you will level this stuff up to get more perks. The graphics are not bad, neither is the idea, but the design is pure fail. There are several lanes, but the objective is to hold the center...all maps. This means ZERG like a mofo...That leaves all the extra trails completely empty. You can try to use them but all that does is create side line fights that benefit no one and have 0 strategy except everyones bored of zerging so you wander off or just noobs. The best strategy is just press forward for a few steps till you at center and (insert game play)
JUST SPAM ATTACKS. There is no strategy to this. If you are healer, just shoot heals at people. Ranged, sit back and range. Tank, get in and tank. etc. etc. To prove this, My palladin gets a 1 hit shot by a tank.... They force your roll to really play your roll, you can not 1 vs 1 another based on skill (like other MOBAS), if your class is not in his roll it is dead. This strict railed game play makes for a crap fest of a game and you will be bored. The action is so stupid. It is just people waving theri hands around, so you basically spray and prey...mele attacks...bravo to this company for creating the first spray and prey friggin fantasy game XD. The only sort of strategic class is the engering gnome who makes gun turrets...but since it takes long and everyone knows, like TF2, it just takes a stealthed assassin to get in and break them.
Seriously, this game is poo. I uninstalled after one day, if you want action fantasy, stick to TERA, if you want 3D MOBA stay with smite, if you want turret building shooter, stick to TF2. AVOID this game.
There were other games like it that shut down, like that Warhammer spin off...
