The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Guild Wars 2 - BWE #3: 20-22 July - Return to FORT ASPENWOOD! - Release date: 28 August!
Pre-purchasing is now available! By buying the game early you get access to all the beta events as well as 3 days' head start when the game is finally released!
Pre-purchasing is not the same as pre-ordering. Check the GW2 website for more deets.
For the First BWE:
- The unofficial home for the Penny Arcade forum crew will be Fort Aspenwood. SA and reddit look like they will be elsewhere (Sea of Sorrows and Yak's Bend). Keep in mind that on release, you can play with anyone on any server - it's only in WvW that your choice of server matters.
- G&T and SE++ will try to make one super guild with everyone joining the same guild; this is to see how things go, to maximize fun + people to play with, as well as to see how much of a difference playing as one big super guild has on influence and power and benefits (as opposed to having a cluster of smaller guilds, each with less influence). Later BWEs might have us trying to split the guilds different ways.
- Remember that as excited as we all are, it's still a beta. That means posting feedback on the GW2 beta forums so that the devs can see it. We are getting to play the beta because HEY IT'S COOL but also because the team will want lots of feedback to help them finalize the game prior to release. So let's make sure we offer some (constructive) thoughts back to ANet and report all bugs!
- The G&T crew have a TS3 server used for voice comms. More info can be found in the G&T thread, but as always - don't be a dick. We are trying to all play together and have a good time; leave the rivalry BS out of it.
- Information is freely available on the Guild Wars 2 website - use it! Not that we aren't happy to help, but I mean, certain individuals on this very forum worked their butts off to make the website as user-friendly and as pretty as possible, so why not make use of that?
