    The GW2 site itself doesn't have any preorder info or a set release date, or information on whether or not there will be collector's editions or anything like that. I think a lot of people would want to hold off until more information about the release is around, myself included.

    did you ever play Dark Age of Camelot? it's pretty much universally agreed to have the best WvW-style pvp and GW2 has taken a massive amount of influence from it, right down to not displaying nameplates for enemy invaders.





    It's a known issue and they've already fixed it, it was one of the first things they fiddled with after the beta.
    DAoC definitely had great PvP and if GW2 ends up being anything like it then we are looking at some seriously awesome battles.

    Yeah, I definitely think I'm going to be a warrior because they can use almost every weapon...but some of the moves don't look that exciting. I want to see some footage that makes me pumped.

    Pretty sure this is coming out this summer as they planned to ramp up the beta a ton between now and the end of April I think.

    So it isn't unwise to think it may come out soon after.

    Anyways I'm thinking I'm gonna go elementalist. Not 100% sure yet. I just hope there isn't one really OP class like pallys were in WoW for awhile

    I'm glad that the servers will change based on skill and stuff from previous battles, so hopefully that will stop most of the steam rolling fests that I was anticipating

    oh god pre-bc and BC days with paladin was the best time of my life. there will inevitably be unbalanced classes that are better than others, but it's like that in every MMO and there's nothing they can really to do make everything PERFECTLY balanced

    This is what most of us expect to happen but I really hope it doesn't. Ruins PVP imo.

    honestly i think that'd be a good idea, that means that the bad servers will be matched with other bad servers. i don't think it'd be so fun if you're on a bad server and you have to face two of the the top PvP servers and you get dominated, they're doing it so it's balanced in terms of general server skill

    A Charr warrior with a hammer (like in these videos) are really badass. I'm not generally a fan of two handed weapons, especially hammers, but something is especially badass about them in these videos.

    Yeah, the hammers seem to have a real impact when you hit the ground with them, pretty awesome. Charr warrior is definitely on my list of characters I have to make.

    But even if you're on a bad server and fighting other bad servers, you'd be stuck on that bad server. You as an individual can't advance to fight for a better server that will probably be using more advanced tactics. You'd have to hope that every other person on your server can get better if you want to advance.

    This is why you join up with an organized PVP guild instead of just picking a random server.

    There are lots of pvp guilds from multiple MMOs that are going to be playing GW2, it should be easy to find one.

    You can change servers. There's just a cool down before you can join a WvWvW.

    A couple of pages ago someone said it cost money to change your world server (which server you fight with in PvP) but PvE changes were free. That sounds more plausible to me than just letting everyone stack on one PvP world with cool downs. dunno if he posted a source though, either way if you want to do serious organized PvP find a guild and know what server they're joining on launch

    I don't think there is a source for the changing servers costing money. But the recent AMA on Reddit done by one of the devs stated that they don't know if there will be a way to switch your "main" server for the WvW, or how it would be done.

    And I guess I'll look into organized guilds, I've never been much of a guild person(In fact I've never truly played a big MMO) I don't like having a guild tag on my name. But if Guild Wars 2 turns out to be as amazing as it looks then I can live with being in a guild.

    The videos from the beta had tags at the end of the character's names. That's it. They're all in [ ] and if it's the same as GW1 there's a max of 4 characters.

    This is kinda out of place for this thread, but I don't know where else to ask, and I can't find information from the bit that I've searched.

    What is NCSoft's relationship with ArenaNet like? I mean, I've never heard any claim that NCSoft changed anything about Guild Wars. In most other games, I see people commenting on the publisher possibly affecting things, but I don't think I've ever seen NCSoft really mentioned at all regarding GW2. The game has been in development for a really long time, and its never been mentioned that they are trying to move the development process along, etc.

    Does NCSoft just entirely leave everything to ArenaNet, and hope they return enough profits? What exactly is their role in the creation process and management of this game? You could just link me to an article or something if you know of one. Thanks.

    In ANet's case they are mainly just publishers. That's really all that I know them as. A huge problem with getting people interested in GW2 for me is that ANet is associated with NCsoft. NCsoft have had some problems in the past with backing unsuccessful MMOs and that's really all they're known for.

    It's already been officially confirmed that there will be a fee to change your 'home' server, it was in the WvW blogpost. They really want to discourage people from just server-hopping to the best WvW server. If your server isn't doing so well in WvW then it doesn't matter because you'll get matched up with other equally bad people.

    They're officially an "independent financial subsidary". Basically NCSoft just chucks money at them to do whatever they want.
