Yup. I am!!

I'll be playing on Jade Quarry. I also have a private TS3 we can all use if we play on the same server.

I want to play this so bad but I have a feeling it would take over my life like WoW did and that is not ok.

Yeah few more days. For us who pre-ordered we get it tonight at midnight. I've been playing a bit of the beta lately though, so it won't be to new to me.

Gamefly had a cupon to get the $79.00 delux edition for $63.00. I think they still have that deal going on.

I didnt like the first guild wars, so I am a little apprehensive about the second one. Funny to learn the GMs will be special forces soldiers though.

Damn, if you don't have the self-discipline to not let that happen then you certainly should stay away.

I used to be addicted to wow, when i was like 16-18 or something. Seriously put in time into that game. Would never, ever, play another game no matter how addicting it may be like that again. I guess you could say I've grown up in that aspect.

I play on buying this game to put in a few hours here and there like i do with all my games. I honestly like exploring the worlds when games like this come out.

I started WoW as a freshman in highschool and stopped playing in my freshman year in college. I find the game super boring to play now. Problem I have for games like that is I want to be in the top tier of players which requires massive amounts of time. I was in one of the Top3 raiding guilds on my server as well as the top PvP battleground team on my server before battle groups exists and it was still WoW vanilla. Then when BC came out 5 of my old raid buddies and I started doing 5v5 arena and we were a top 5 team in the battlegroup. To compete on that level it is like a full time job. I think I played atleast 6 hours a day at the very minimum. I had a lot of fun but I realized how pointless it all was and stopped. I probably would not get that involved this time around but I could be doing more constructive things with my time.

Yeah, i was in a leading guild for a while in vanilla wow on deathwing. Its addicting, just dont get in that position again. Last game i played was Rift and i told the people I played with straight up that I dont have time to get too into it, and played casually. It was pretty damn fun that way.

I am all about PvP now and when I did make short stints back to WoW that is all I would do. I have a problem finding good players to play with casually though. If I do end up playing this game that is how I would want to play.

Raids were only fun in WoW when it was 40 people. They became way less epic and had a lot less dynamic potential when they lowered the bar and PvP became so much more prominent.

Best part about the game is THIS. Unlike other RPG's, or MMORPG's you can explore the ENTIRE world without having to worry about what level you are.

It drops tonight if you had pre ordered it through their website.. servers go online in 12 hours. For every1 that pre-ordered it via another website it starts the 27th and finally for every1 it starts the 28th officially.

I'll be on a server called gates of madness i believe.

There is no pvp stuff in guild wars. The system is made to be server vs server therefore every1 on your server is your friend. If you want to pvp you join what looks like a very large "battleground" similar to wintergrasp or TB. There modes i remember off the top of my head is similar to tb. The capture the flag thing but instead of capping all 3, you make points by having the flag.

Anyhow timer is on the front page.

Hmm, I watched some pvp videos of it before. Are you saying that you only fight people on other servers? That's pretty awesome.

Actually no, if you're level 1 and you run into a level 50 area you will get slaughtered. Trust me, i know. I've played both open beta events and all the other server load tests. I've seen my level being pushed down however i've never seen my level being bumped up because of what level area i play. I dont know if its the level that makes a big difference but you dont get buffs in gear so i'd imagine it would be like running naked vs lvl 50 creatures.

There is the normal pvp battlegrounds stuff. For that you que up and you get sent to a battle ground where its team vs team. Every few weeks they have world pvp events and in those you fight other servers.

Wait... so there is no open world pvp. No ganking or epic outdoor battles at random. That is gay. I understand not everyon likes that but that is why you have different types of servers.

The only players you'll find on your server is friendly. There will be no ganking the newbies.

On wow there is the alliance and the horde. 2 factions per server. On guild wars there arent 2 factions.

I am not gonna lie that is pretty gay. You do not really need two factions for that anyway. You could just make it free for all. Some of the most fun I had was in WoW vanilla in open PvP.

Then that would ruin the pve dynamic events completely.

I take it you know what those are?
