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!

[GW2]New thread is up. Hope everyone enjoyed the April BWE! It was awesome!

    Hello new iPad wallpaper.

    Speaking of wallpaper. I made a 1080P wallpaper out of the image, if anyone wants it.

    I had no fucking idea what Pinterest was till a few months ago and suddenly I see it mentioned constantly. It really seems like one of those flash in the pan products (or products that seem like they should just be a sourceforge JS snippet) whose business model just reads 'Get bought by someone'.

    This is to view the info

    Heres the "sign up list" again for those that wanted to look or add their name. Really its more of a way to get an idea of how many people are going to be in for this BWE.

    The only reason I haven't put my name down yet is because I've just moved houses and my ISP is being a goose, so I have no idea if I will be connected for the weekend.

    I'll probably go invade a library for free wifi, but I'm dubious of the ability to download a 20gb or whatever client on a public network...

    A couple things I learned today.

    First up is that gw2builds.org is pretty cool.

    And secondly. Apperently some of the prospective guilds for gw2 are holding a monthly meetinghouse for the guilds to talk about various things. It is recorded podcast style. Would anyone object to me attending the next one as our guilds representative?

    Go right ahead. The more exposure the better. Obviously the guild is PA only, but I would like us to be a fixture in the wider GW2 community and contribute to it as well as be a prime guild on our chosen server.

    OP has been expanded with more detailed info on TS3 and setting it up GW2 style. It's basically what we are going with at this point barring any catastrophic cascade failures over the BWE which seems very unlikely.

    My wife has been all about that shit for the longest time. Well before it was cool. And works full time too.

    She knew it was becoming a "thing" when she started seeing scam type adverts on there.

    Right now you can login at http://account.guildwars2.com and there's an option for downloading the client, only it's not available yet.

    Thanks Enig that's exactly what I was looking for. A friend wanted to look at it and I didn't want to use Arenanet pictures (They look actually less good than these, but that's because Arenanet is an honest company, most arent)

    We should be Wuvwuving together; the guild with the most participating members will have the option of claiming the towers, keeps, and the castle. It will also display our Guild Banner and any upgrades we have under Art of War. :D

    Thus, some organization is required.

    This already exists with the Tactician stuff; the purchasable item that lets you form squads etc.

    If anything, you want the leader of a guild to be level-headed to help all the people out. You want your tactician to be a ruthless bastard that understands things words like maneuver, flanking, battle ready magic powered suit of stone, charr. You know, important shit.
    I could fill the job of Tactician quiet nicely. My main character for the up coming weekend will be a Charr Warrior with a Commander based build. Banners and/or shouts depending on weapon selection. Shouts for range and banners for close-range combat.

    Plus, I am a ruthless tactical bastard in real life. My primary gaming genre is turn-based strategy followed by real-time, and then strategy based board games. Though, my specialty is long-term strategy, big picture, macro-management.

    Word from the SA forum is that the previous client is now updating for the upcoming beta. The link for those who want it is:reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/s8f8p/looks_like_someone_goofed_prepurchasers_have/

    It works, as far as I can tell.

    Edit: vvv that link is better

    I just wanted to indicate that I've pre-purchased and I'll definitely be betaing this weekend. I'll also be working for 10 hours a day on Friday and Saturday so I won't be able to play much but I thought I might indicate my interest. Any news on if Asura or Sylvari will be playable this weekend?
