Yeah, and WoW brought us motor bikes, Xmas, Halloween and Harris Pilton, and a crapton of other stuff that totally ruined the setting. Doesn't mean I have to like it though

I dance semi-naked in the bathroom anyways so I have no complaints about gamer behaviour in mmorpgs.

The dances are disappointing to be honest. But that's from someone who doesn't play mmorpg with dance emotes but dances irl, so my expectations are kind of different xP.

What Guild wars 2 dance needs is a little advanced blades training from

"Time to wipe the floor in WvW! Amaze your friends and astound your enemies with our unique super flamboyant sword art!"

Best of luck to everyone planning to grab a common character name today. I'll be sleeping at 7pm today and waking up at 11:30pm.

Yeah, the holidays were rather taxing on the suspension of disbelief. Most of the pop culture references, and there were many, weren't all that obvious at first glance though.

If I buy the game now, do I get the head start or not?

Yup, and a couple of trinkets depending on which version you're buying.

Really got to think about if I want to play it or not. I played in the beta quite some time ago, which I found pretty fun, but I am wondering is the PvP going to be fun at the max level.

If you buy it right now you can start playing tomorrow (ie, 3 days ahead of schedule). The game is about 14 GB though so you want to leave yourself ample time to download it.

You mean in terms of gear VS skill? Well, the GW2 battlegrounds puts everyone into equal level and gear, so gear shouldn't be the make-or-break it is in most MMO's in those at least.

Hey, i'm in the same boat as Ak3mi. If i know nothing about this game or its predecessor, and buy it now for tomorrow, will it be worth it?

EDIT: Oh, whatever. COME ON, RANDOM MMORPG, BE FUN.

Well, in response to any people that are wondering "is this game going to be as great as people say it will be" or the "why should I get this game" here's the most common video response.



This was posted on their FB page a couple weeks ago regarding PvE lovers:
Convincing a friend to try Guild Wars 2? Here are ten reasons PvE players will love GW2:
Quote:
• *Because Curtis’ ranch isn’t going to save itself.*
No, really. If you’re hanging out in Claypool and Cattleman Curtis runs up shouting that bandits will take over his ranch if you don’t help, he’s not kidding. https://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/dynamic-events/

• *Because this is one of the little dragons.* http://www.flickr.com/photos/arenane...n/photostream/

• *Because that player isn’t coming to steal your kill, he’s coming to make it more epic.*
Cross-profession combos are as easy to create as they are are dangerous. No need to stop, strategize, and debate group dynamics–just go with the flow of battle and enjoy playing with everyone around you! https://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/combat/

• *Because dungeons are waiting to bring the pain, and then do it again in a completely different way.* https://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/dungeons/

• *Because you don’t have to play through boring stuff to get to the good stuff. We give it to you right out of the gate.* http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OO3nTjwpguE&t=5m11s

• *Because you can see how the other half… er, fifth… lives.* All racial zones are open to all players right away, so you can join your friends no matter what race they choose to play. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEdr8HHJ-zU

• *Because everyone loves a big finish.*
Events in GW2 don’t occur in a vacuum, and a series of dynamic events can explode into a final meta event. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...levant_count=1


• Because the quaggan are just so cute you want to help them. http://www.arena.net/blog/the-mostly-harmless-quaggan

• *Because it’s so much more than swinging a sword.*
(Or shooting pistols, or firing a flamethrower.) You can cut a swath through the baddies of Tyria, but there’s so much more. Puzzles, trivia, and all manner of non-combat challenges await you all over the world. Keep your eyes open and pay attention to your surroundings–it’s not just window-dressing! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rx4UdIpaCWU

• Because Destiny’s Edge needs you. http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Destiny's_Edge

Is everyone here planning on playing on the same server or making a guild?

1 more hour to go if we are lucky.

Anyway, 1 player can join multiple guilds just that he can only represent 1 at a time.

Just got to play as soon as the servers were open. It was my first time trying the game out too, but man oh man, the lag is too much. The game is unplayable for me at this time. =(

I am not surprised though, with the amount of hype the game have gotten massive lag is to be expected.

Update: WOW this is a pleasant surprise... I discovered I am able to switch servers at will. I transferred to a low Population one and the game is looking quite good.

I joined Fort Aspenwood for now, since I wanted to see what it's like to play in a higher volume server. I played in Ehmry Bay for the stress test (Medium volume server), and may go back there again if I'm not too keen on Aspenwood.

Too addictive... have been playing non-stop since the launch. Spent the 1st few hours run into every building, clear all of the key points, so only lvl 7-8 atm....

Taking a break and probably will get right back
