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?

    I'm in the middle of getting one of my characters through Nightfall, but haven't played in a couple weeks due to playing other games. I need to get back into that, though.

    Can't wait for beta to open up for GW2.

    I kinda wanna start my own guild like I did back in the day

    but it's expensive and we need enough people playing for it to be viable

    still if you need an invite I can ask my buddy in the guild I'm in if that's ok

    I will help you with this as my Monk is working on finishing it and I have a low-level Ele who's only just made it to Blacktide Den

    and I have other level 20s who never did much of anything in Nightfall

    only my Mesmer has finished Nightfall

    I'll join for stuff and I have the cash to start up a guild I think

    Like, not all the stupid expensive stuff you can buy for it, but definitely a Guild Hall, Cape and Storage Chest, which is all I ever used anyway :P

    it can be

    I'll admit that, and I know that's what turns a lot of people off of it

    Guild Wars can feel quite thin, and I blame that on the focus being more on balanced PvP than on a rich PvE story

    still, the stories are all right and the combat is fun as hell

    I used to play the SHIT out of this... then my account got hacked 1 year ago on Halloween. I haven't played since. I have played SOOOOO many other games since I quit playing this. I did just reinstall, due to a friend finally building himself another PC after having only Mac for years, but honestly I don't see myself playing this on any occasion other than to play with a r/l friend.

    That said, I am excited for GW2 and will probably play that when it comes out.

    character screenshots!

    my Warrior, who I deleted because she was named after my ex-boyfriend:

    ibh15k.jpg

    oh and my Elementalist, who was deleted for the same reason:

    vix2.jpg

    yes, I deleted them even though they both have 15k armor and even though I could rename them

    it's 15 bucks to rename just one of them, I mean jesus christ

    Guild Wars follows the less armor is more (attractive) school of design. I wish I had time for this game though. I bought it a while ago but I haven't been able to play it at all. And Post-Searing Ascalon is sooooo boring.

    hah not really

    that Warrior armor is the only one that is revealing

    the others are just full-on plate and chainmail stuff (scroll down)

    the only character with consistently skanky armor is the Elementalist
