    I would be careful with Amazon:
    Pre-order Price Guarantee. Learn more.

    This item has not yet been released.
    You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
    See details. Ships from and sold by Amazon.com. Gift-wrap available.

    Pre-order is not the same as pre-purchase. Pre-order won't get you into the BWEs and only gets you 1 day of head start, not 3.

    Edit: Unless this has been clarified somewhere and I just missed it.

    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?

    EU server would be my vote. Nothing sucks more in these games than lag, can ruin the whole thing.

    Do you need to do anything special at Gamestop for it to be considered a prepurchase as opposed to a preorder? I have the CE in my cart now.

    EU penny arcade guilds tend to burn up in a blaze of glory around one month after launch as we all get ADD and move onto something else. Having no one to play with tends to suck as much as if not more than a bit of latency :)

    Hmm, I'm wondering this too now.

    I see no pre-purchase method when on the gamestop site....

    For some reason ArenaNet had no account information on me even though I played the GW1 beta/trial. Had to create a new account. Oh well.

    That is weird, as they didn't specify. Just asked if I had a GW account. Oh well, doesnt matter.

    Also, WaM. I don't know if you had anything to do with that buy site (I would imagine so since you're on the web team). But it's really well designed and conveys the pretty of the game very well.

    No it is not legit. Do not believe any release date until you see it on the official site.

    ANet have not given a release date because they have not decided their release date yet (the upcoming beta weekends will determine it).

    Wellp, got me a pre-purchase. That makes it two games bought so far this year, neither of which is out yet. I can't tell if I'm getting more patient, or less patient.

    Look, I never had a dream in my life, 'cause a dream is what you wanna do and still haven't pursued; I knew what I wanted and did it 'til it was done, so I've been the dream that I wanted to be since day one.

    Hmm...guildwars2.com does not support Internet Explorer for submitting purchasing information. That seems...odd. It wouldn't be an issue if I were at home but I'm trying to buy from my work computer. I get that IE sucks but a ton of people still use it, that seems like a decision that will cost them quite a bit of money.

    Oh well, guess I'll buy it through my iphone.

    OK I've got a question that I don't think has been answered yet.

    For us jet-setting international travelling types, is there going to be an option to migrate accounts from the US to EU servers or vice-versa? I just want to know if a) I'm going to have to buy two copies of the game (which I'm not too bothered about) and b) if any progress I make with my US-based characters is going to be lost forever when I'm back home in the EU (which I'm a lot more bothered about)

    i believe they haven't said if there's a way to transfer your account

  • SarksusSarksus Registered User regular
    I remember there being a blurb somewhere on their site or Twitter that they are aware of people who travel and they will release more info about that.

  • SwashbucklerXXSwashbucklerXX Swashbucklin' Canuck Registered User regular
    They have said that they are aware that many of their fans travel and they are working on a solution.

    It will probably be like at the beginning of GW1 where you had a limited ammount of changes to your region.

    Also, if World as Myth (got it right now, yay!) or someone else can sort of clear this:
    Ok seems we need to clear something up quickly, pre-purchase of #GW2 gives you a retail code (full game) for the #GW2 not a beta code! ^AT

    IF i understood this, when the game is released, i won't have to wait for the game box to get to me to start playing, is that it? Because with that, i won't have any problems ordering from Zavvi. They are a bit shitty about shipping to outside the UK :(

    Just bought it on Amazon after they got new swag in.
    They say it'll be "shipped" on April 17th. Good enough for me, not like the beta will start before the 27th.

    Welp, Canada EBGames haven't received their Guild Wars 2 prepurchase codes today. So good on that. Guess I'll keep clutching my pre-order slip and hoping.

    So I went first thing this morning to my local gamestop and put 25 bux down on a CE, and the guy there had no clue about a physical beta box to give me. Does anyone know anything about this? Has ANYONE been given a physical beta box today so far?

    You have to prepurchase to be given the code. So you'd need to pony up the full $150 for the box.

    The codes are not beta keys, it seems, they are actual keys for the game that just happen to also give BWE access.

    AH! Thanks for the clarification on that, looks like I'll need to go back into the store at lunch and plop down the full amount.

    I'd give them a call first and make sure you can get a pre-purchase box before you put down the full amount. Just to make sure.

    I'd hate to see anyone put down the full amount and only get a pre-order out of the deal because Gamestop sucks.

    Were you able to fully pre-purchase, thus getting all the extra access, and not just pre-order from amazon?

    What is this I don't even.
