Guild Wars 2
A website:

http://www.guildwars2.com/en/

There's another Beta event this long weekend (8-11 June) for those that already have the game.

The first beta event proved that this game is awesome.

Yeah I am going to play the shit out of this game when it drops. Haven't pre-ordered yet because I don't have a PC that will run it at the moment.

Let us know how the beta weekend goes. I'm particularly interested in knowing how much latency impacts on competitiveness.

Release date just announced for 28/8/2012

Very pumped for this...

The personalisation of character and story is freaking awesome. In the beta I was heading down the path of a shapeshifting bar brawler, was a laugh and a half

Screw it, I'm in. Played a bit of WoW earlier in the week and forgot how much I love MMO's.

Plus my old crew are all playing it I believe. Korean Netcafe Mafia represent.

Been watching some PVP videos this week and the depth to the tactics looks great - lots of synergy and combos between the professions and I love how you can jump in at level one without any grinding.

Given the WvWvW game (long-term objectives/capped player limit) it seems like it would make sense to spread Oceanic players across all servers so the battle continues to rage around the clock.

These two vids got me pretty hyped:

Media Player
Guild Wars 2 - Engineer sPvP "Inspector Gadget" build - YouTube

Media Player
Super Squad vs. Team Paradigm #1 BWE 3(Erho's necro PoV) - YouTube

I played on the weekend. Got to level 25 without much effort. Warrior is a total noob class but 1 button press to kill something is hilarious.

sounds like once you've chosen a server for your first char you can only WvWvW for that "world" even if you create a new char (unless you pay to transfer). So choose wisely!

Pretty keen to start playing this hopefully will take me away from D3 for a while. Is anyone on here going to start up a Guild?

I did some respergch and foudn this Australian fan site that is attempting to track aussie guilds. Worth checking before you create your first character:

http://gw2au.com/guildcodex/
http://gw2au.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=26

the trick is to find a server with a decent aussie population but not a complete zerg - you're more likely to get into WvWvW that way. You also want one with a decent US population so they don't get pwnd while you're not logged on.

I had a chuckle when I saw that Blizzard are releasing both 1.04 for Diablo AND 5.01 for World of Warcraft the same week that Guild Wars 2 goes live.

Threatened much?

I doubt they are particularly threatened. WoW's significant subscriber drop this year was caused by another one of their own products.

The product they gave for free to over 1 million subscribers? I'm not sure I'd believe that, even if that's what they tell the media.

For all those who like their pvp theorycrafting, Arena Junkies now has a forum dedicated to GW2. Worth a skim before deciding what class to role with.

I'm tossing up between thief and engineer.

Actually, I think I read somehwere that Blizzard attributed most of this year's drop to Chinenese subs. Nevertheless, they still have 10 million subscribers. Hardly territory to start being concerned, especially after the fizzlepop that SWTOR turned out to be.

Air-attuned elementalist might be up your alley. Having said that most professions have viable builds focusing on control / damage / survivability / support with a mix of ranged and melee so worth checking them all out.

Cheers, I'll look into it. I find I just have the most fun with a ranged DPS that can control the pace of the fight... Not just a glass canon.

If any of you guys are looking for a guild that is WvW focused we're still recruiting. http://darknessiseverywhere.enjin.com
Note that PvE and Arena are not our focus but will still happen when we aren't WvW'ing.

Good thing is you can be in multiple guilds at once so each guilds can specialise if they want.

just played the stress test for a few hours on a thief and so far I reckon ArenaNet have nailed this.
The sPvP, the questing system, inventory management, the auction house, all so good.

Purchased. Getting issues on their site registering account though, "incorrect password" timeouts. Hopefully resolved before the Pre-Play deadline ends.

So, are all you guys going for the same server, which one is it?

DiE aren't announcing our server choice till about lunchtime.

We picked up another 10-15 members overnight with another guild that wanted to merge with us. Roster currently at 90 and growing. Not a zerg guild btw. All experienced MMO players with teamwork and strategy for WvW the focus.

Deluxe Edition purchased and downloading now.

Off The Secret World bandwagon. Game is too glitchy, UI is counterproductive, chugs like hell on my i5 laptop even with detail turned down and the constant crashing of video card drivers makes it unplayable.

Spent about 2 hours with a mate and a carton surfing through Guild Wars 2 videos on YouTube and finding out a bunch of our other mates (and their mates) are all playing and using a different profession each makes the whole thing an instant purchase.

Guild Wars 1 ran smooth as hell on my last laptop, and I really hope that the same post-production quality from that translates well into this one. Smooth gaming experience = dedicated amounts of hours to playing = fun/productive.

Probably going Guardian, and if my friend is going Guardian then I'm going Necromancer.
