Welp, my computer can't run GW2 efficiently anymore. Not sure I'll bother even though I bought the pre-release.

Here's to participating in the last "real" mAT of Guild Wars 1 tomorrow. Maybe I'll see some of you in it if you GvG competitively.

Amazon is showing the game being available on the 28th for download but I only got the key from them. Download was done thru GW. Buying from GW shows you would still get early access though.

i believe buying through GW before the game is released grants access. if you want to play the game, you might as well get it now anyways right?

TOR was okay except for the fact that it was so ****ing hard to play with people you knew until everyone was lvl 50. I liked the background and playing thru on your first character wasn't too bad. EPT and I had a decent time for awhile when he hit 50 doing hard mode flashpoints and PVP for maybe a month or two before that got stale. Rolling a second character just flat out sucked as you had to do all the stupid side missions you have already done just to stay at the right level.

I think GW2 will fix both issues due to level scaling whether it be scaling us all up to lvl 80 for PVP or scaling us down to the lvl of the dungeons and even specific quests. I was a lvl 7 or 8 doing a lvl 6 mission the other day and it scaled me down to lvl 6 to keep it challenging. Also, the different races have different main quests AND side quests so if I want to reroll an alt I can just select a new race and have basically an entire new game.

**** no... TOR was the first MMO I've ever played other than 5 minutes of a free trial for WOW.

Where'd you get 6 days to hit cap?

That was me on release of Rift. My guild was shard leader and we were second overall between shards. We had two members in particular who were kicking *** and getting all kinds of stuff. A guy on my shard was the first max level, a guy in my guild was the second.

I was like 4 levels below max on day 3 I think and got hacked. Took me a week to get it back and everyone had such better **** already. Two days later, through a highly secure password, their anti-hacking mobile program, and one other thing (forgot) and I got uber-hacked and called it quits.

So it seems like a couple of the bigger guilds switched from Fort Aspenwood to Northern Shiverpeaks. Any thoughts James, Terd, anyone else? JC Nor7 is going to Northern if that makes a difference.

honestly i hadn't thought of what server i was going to roll on. if people from PBN are grouping up together on one server i'd definitely join in.

I think it only makes a difference in WvW. If we somehow pick different servers, we can still do PVE and maybe structured PVP together. I'd rather roll on a server where there are a large number of people actually playing together, i.e. guilds, as being outnumbered in open world PVP really sucks.
