    Default Guild Wars 2



    Just curious as to who is going to play it. With the multi-guild function it would be pretty nice to get folks on the same server for the World vs World vs World pvp.

    I will be! I cannot wait for GW 2. I logged in well over 1000 hours in the original GW and loved everything about it. Then I got a mac laptop and it just rain miserably on bootcamp. Getting a new Windows PC and will be getting this when it comes out. Any word on the release date?

    "When it's done". Is the official line. Considering they have promised 3 beta weekend events and it's been over a month since the last one. I'd say a while. Maybe Sept at the earliest.

    Ironically I wasn't a fan of the original guild wars. Tried checking it out recently and the graphics have aged terribly that I couldn't really take it seriously.

    Heh- I remember getting it on release day. I loved the PvP aspects, the many different kinds kept it fresh. I also like how you could play the game with other people or alone. A great balance IMO. I think you'll enjoy the game if it is anything like the original.

    Very excited for this. Can't stand MMORPG's, but Guild Wars is different. I like the heavier approach on PVP, and less grinding than most other MMOs.

    I'm praying this will run on a new 13 inch macbook pro with windows installed on it. I need a new laptop for school but want to be able to play this when it comes out.

    Oh man Guild Wars 2 is a blast. Played a couple hours of WvWvW. We managed to take over the entire map. Was hella fun.

    It was fun but there is obviously still quite a bit of work to do. WvWvW still has a LOT of polishing to be done. Same with sPvP. They are still making wholesale changes on the fly when it comes to traits etc. So I doubt we will see it live until November or so.

    For those of you experiencing login issues to GW2 (like me), Arena Net is aware of the problem and have posted this Youtube video:

    Gah. I am so tempted to pick this up this week. I hope it will run on a laptop with a 2nd gen i5 processor and integrated graphics. I really should wait until October to get it but it is just SO TEMPTING.

    Get it. I've played 2/3 betas and am playing right now. It's nice.

    I don't doubt it. I played the other one thousands of hours haha. I just need to focus on preparing for the LSAT until the beginning of october. Hoping I can hold out until then, and then reward myself with GW2.

    How is the PvP?

    I haven't got that far yet. I work and can't junk out on it yet. From what I hear that's the main focus and apparently awesome.
