Default Question about weather

Will weather be on a global scale? I think a weather system would be kinda awesome for the MMO mode, where it's nto just random weather changes but patterns across the globe meaning some places like deserts it rarely rains or the storms break before they get there etc. Same with on the battlefield based on location and time of day in the MMO mode it would have weather based on that area of the globe. Seasons etc. would be awesome. So I guess my question is, will there be global weather patterns? Or is it just randomized? Or is it currently undecided?

oh man, good idea. It would be awesome to have some nice weather effects. I want some weather type where everything is glowing and there's little white leaves flying around and stuff. That looks soo awesome!

You got it. The weather, and seasons are global. And some regions like Brakental desert it never rains and always summer.

That's awesome! It's great how realistic you guys are making the mmo map! But can it rain in the desert like, once or twice every few months? It would be nice to time attacks on the foolish orcs for when the rare storm hits. It would be like a plague that they would have to watch out for when a storm hits.

As in never? Even the Sahara occasionally gets rain. Would be a great Easter-egg if once in a blue moon you actually did get weird weather that was out of character for the region.

Now, how will things like snow storms affect units? Will they be slower in traveling have less of a line of sight? (I don't think sickness or hypothermia would be in this game.)

Thanks

I think they will just cause you visibility problems (not from units but only you) (maybe also archers hit rating), as i remember from the thread where was picture of building on fire and they said that rain could not put fire off... so i think weather wont have direct effect on units? But maybe i mixed something up here and i dont remember correctly. =P
