    Is the 79 Digital Special ED USD the same price in the US as it is in Australia?

    Wait, if my account name never contained @plaync or @ncsoft and was always just an email address (my account was made about a week after GW1 launched), does being linked to an ncsoft account even matter?

    Question: Can we access the beta forums now that we pre-purchased? What E-mail do we use if so? And finally, is the NDA lifted?

    Seeing as NDA does not lift ever I would assume no. I doubt we will be given access to the closed beta forums.

    the NDA for the first beta event is still in effect and won't be lifted.

    So the Portuguese retailer who is supposed to have the CE doesn't even know what "Guild Wars 2" is ... wtf :s

    Was thinking on maybe ordering from the UK but it has sold out already >.>

    Anyone (or WoM but he seems busy) knows if the book is going to get translated for say, french or spanish users? I might just order from the french amazon :s

    When did I become a dude named WoM?

    Anyway, the CE book is in fact localized in German and French. We're also working on getting the CE available in UK again asap.



    (I'm not ignoring the other questions in here, but I'm trying to make sure I'm replying with stuff we've said officially, because I don't want to speak out of turn and make the community/marketing squad cross with me.)

    I'm sorry, was it because of i called you a dude or WoM? Or both? Maybe Sir WoM? Dear World of Myth?

    Thanks a lot for answering :)

    You lose that wager! Do I get a free copy? ;)

    I just don't want to see 10 copies charged to my Visa from trying multiple times from 3 different browsers. ;)

    Pre-purchase complete.

    Instead of that, I'll just pre-thank you for your pre-purchase.

    So Amazon.de shows the pre-purchase edition, even says it's "in stock" but when I click "add to shopping cart" it just says "your shopping cart is empty".

    Huh.

    I bought it from GW2.com. Was considering getting it from Webhallen (ye olde Swedish online shop), but it seems the SEK is pretty strong against the euro right now so I actually saved some pocket change when you added shipping, and I don't have to worry about waiting for the disc to arrive in time.

    Well it's 5€ cheaper on Amazon AND I can buy it right now instead of waiting 5 days for my money transaction to arrive on my paypal account.

    I suppose it's time to start discussing this: should we Euros play on US servers with the PA gang there, or stick to a Euro server for a PA guild?

    I'll be on EU with all my RL friends but since you can always visit servers, I'll probably drop by on US a few times.

    Yeah I was wondering about that, obviously we can use the play with friends option for PvE but not PvP.

    To be honest, i don't even care for the BWE or the 3 day earlier start, i just want the CE statue and book. Hopefully our retailer here won't screw me :(

    And now Amazon.de says GW2 pre-purchase is "unavailable".

    We're assuming a lot thinking there will even be different NA/EU servers. All we know is there are different data centers.

    But if we don't know which server is where, how can we choose the proper master race server?

    And all signed up, with account linked (still only 28 in the HoM though) and email received. :D

    Oh and while I think my main in release will be a human elementalist, the same as my GW1 main, I am not sure I want to play one much during the beta weekends. Hmmmm. *ponders*

    For those of you asking, yes you will be able to upgrade from standard to Digital Deluxe, it will be linked within your account! ^AT

    On the off chance that those thingies actually turn out to be of use.

    I still want a GW1 glowy hands equivalent. I have the special dances from Factions and Nightfall CEs, but a glowy hands would be the icing on the cake.

    I am hoping Art of War followed by Architecture's Foundry to support Art of War siege equipment reduced cost.

    Went with DD - the extra bits may not be worth it (though the small boosts may be worth it in themselves), but I figure the price is what I'd pay for any P2P MMO for box + 1 month, so that seems fine to me.

    Successful purchase. Now its time for waiting game number 2.

    10-17 days waiting time. Then the glory of GW2 shall blaze upon my own humble 1080P monitor.

    The other one is sold out and Mediamarkt + Saturn are actual stores I need to walk into and hope they have the game there. Which I will try tomorrow.

    Looked at buying Guild Wars 2 on Amazon.com and it didn't say anything about the pre-purchase program. Anyone able to confirm it'd still work there?

    What is this I don't even.

    No CE on amazon... that blows.

    Does gamestop do release day stuff as reliably as amazon?
