Welcome to Take 7 of our ongoing saga of Guild Wars 2 game hype, MMO industry discussion and offering praise to ArenaNet. Core is EXCITED FOR LAUNCH YAY! The old threads can be found in the MMO archive because I’m too lazy to waste space here linking to them, awesome as they were. They live on in an ever growing save file on my computer, brought here for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!

As you might remember, Guild Wars was an interesting hybrid multiplayer RPG game with MMO elements released during the early years of WoW's dominance in the MMO market, a stylish, robust offering most notable for being free to play without any restrictions or item shops with the purchase of the retail box. It featured six core classes, PvE content containing 25 storyline missions of epic scale and scope, and a PvP component, the fondly remembered Guild vs Guild and World vs World style combat. With the level cap at only 20, players could reach it rapidly or even start new characters for PvP at the level cap and fully trained. Since 2005, it's gotten 3 expansions and countless patch updates. It's still going strong on it's own and is one of NCSoft's most successful forays into the MMO market.
And now, ArenaNet, the developers behind the game under NCSoft ownership, are back with a new beginning for this great franchise, the highly anticipated and 6 years+ in the making...

Guild Wars 2 Design Manifesto: (The real reason you should have a boner for this game despite past MMO genre failures)



Behind the Scenes Retrospective Video: (Another reason to have a boner for Guild Wars 2)



Various ArenaNet devs talking about the game and the community it has already built around it:



Those videos sure are great, but how about a bit more detail on what makes GW2 different and awesome? Here's the straight poop you need to know, and if you want more details, read on!

- No monthly fees. GW2 requires only the box purchase to play, and has a microtransaction store in game that sells optional consumables and cosmetic stuff; no pay to win items.
- Dynamic Events, or, imagine actually looking forward to running into other players in an MMO world. The dynamic event system replaces traditional questing with a system of events, some independent, some tied together, that play out in the world independent of player action. You automatically enter and leave them at will, and do not need to ask a quest giver for them or return to one after it's completion. All you need to do is participate, and everyone involved is rewarded based on how much they participate.
- A Truly Personal Storyline. Be a hero, make choices, learn about the overarching situation in the land of Tyria, Save the World, etc. Your character can experience a tailored, GW campaign style story in addition to the dynamic event system that you shape with your choices.
- Epic-scale PvP. Love sieges, keeps, chaos? Want blood for the Blood God? WvWvW, lovingly nicknamed wuvwuv, is three servers pitted against each other in vicious combat to dominate an inter-dimensional battlefield known as the Mists for glory and for the benefits victory brings to one's server. Think DAOC Borderlands skirmishes and sieges, but with no factions. Servers are unified against other servers.
- We also have Small-scale E-sport PvP. Think WoW battlegrounds/arenas, but more finely tuned and balanced.
- Sidekicking allows you to always be able to play with your friends, no matter what level you are.
- No Holy Trinity means you will always be able to play with anyone and not need to spam chat looking for tanks and heals for hours. Players need to be more skillful, self-sufficient and work as a team to succeed at challenging content.
- No grind. Thanks to the variable level sidekick system and dynamic event systems, the devs have little reason to drag out the leveling process. It follows a linear progression of about 1.5 hours per level up to a max level of 80.
- No gear treadmill. As in GW1, max-stat gear will be readily available as soon as you reach the max level. The challenge of dungeons, PvP and other high-end content will provide your character more awesome looking equipment and give marginal upgrades to stats and some unique abilities, but you can’t out-gear your problems in GW2.
- Beautiful graphics, smart user interface, extensive Armor-Dye System, and more! Such as:
- Useful and convenient Crafting system,
- Multiplayer Skill Combos,
- Complex Trait System for Character Skill Customization,
- A Fully Featured Auction House known as the Marketplace, with buy orders and other economical trend reports (like EvE) and,
- For quick fixes of fun and bar brawls, Fun Mini Activities. Think carnival games and tests of skill.

If any of this has piqued your interest, continue reading, watching and checking out the many links and articles.

Playable Races Section:

The 5 Races: (It isn't just humans anymore!)



The Humans:
hero-human.jpg

The resiliency of the noble human race has been tested many times. They have paid a dear cost for their security and liberty, yet their spirit remains unshaken. Only through courage, will, and unity can the humans retain their storied culture and reach once more to rise above. The characters you played in the original Guild Wars won't be able to follow you here, but the human race still struggles on in their name to find a place among the new scheme of things, and this time they will need your help. They have also gotten a lot of upgrades in the last 2 centuries, which will be interesting to see when compared to the original game.

The Charr:
hero-charr.jpg

Ascalon's conquerors, the charr are ferocious, warmongering creatures--the intractable foes of humanity. Now, as greater dangers threaten their conquests, charr legions and their war machines prepare for battle. Think steampunk meets bipedal sabertooth cats. With guns! These guys are no joke, and guaranteed to be the most rolled MMO race since the blood elves.

The Norn:
hero-norn.jpg

The norn are towering brawlers from the frigid northern lands who can shape-shift into mighty bestial forms. Driven from their homeland by a force beyond reckoning, the norn have regrouped among the dwarven ruins of the Shiverpeaks. The Vikings have nothing on these guys. If you ever wanted to become a polar bear and tear your opponents limb from limb, this is the race for you.

The Asura:
hero-asura.jpg

The asura, who once ruled the caverns and tunnels below Tyria, are an advanced race of small size and great intellect. Now that they have risen from below, the asura aim to rule the surface world with their powerful golems and ingenious plans. This aesthetic feels similar to many a small yet smart race from other lore (Gibberlings in Allods, Gnomes in WoW and elsewhere, Halflings from LoTR and D&D, etc), but what these big eyed fellows lack for in originality they more then make up for in technology and and having enough differences in viewing the world around them to make them unique among those who love being small and mischievous.

The Sylvari:
hero-sylvari.jpg

Not much is known of the sylvari, save that they are a race of sentient plant-beings, newly blossomed into the world. The sylvari are the youngest of the races, bound together by a common dream and awesome power. They are a race that was created at the end of a long quest in the original Guild Wars involving a peace loving centaur who planted his dream of a better world in the form of a tree which is now a forest from which this race has been born. I think this was a great idea for a new player race and i'll definitely be interested to see where their story goes.

Professions Section: All classes are now revealed. We all agree they are all awesome and alt worthy; the big question is, which one will you play first? Klyka has a helpful chart to get you started:
TGAMN.jpg

3 Scholar Professions:
hero-elementalist.jpg
Elementalist. The Mage/Shaman-esque caster class who calls upon the four traditional elemental powers of Earth, Air, Fire and Water to do everything from nuke things to healing allies, buffing their abilities, modifying their attacks and generally making things explode. They use an Attunement system to focus the elemental powers to the element most suited to their needs in any given situation. GW2 Site link: http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/elementalist/.
hero-necromancer.jpg
Necromancer. Anyone who knows anything about time honoured fantasy IPs, like D&D and Everquest, know that Necromancers are feared, dark magic using spellcasters, who create vile diseases with their evil spells and summon up terrifying undead minions from the very earth to smite their enemies. In Guild Wars 2, they are very much akin to this ideal, and can be seen as a WoW warlock turned up to 11 with more AoEs and, in this game's case, a monopoly on fear mechanic skills, as well as many deadly attacks that hurt opponents while healing allies and giving the Necromancer an exclusive energy type known as life force, with which they can fuel their most potent skills. Another fine, and certainly scary, addition to the profession list. (Now officially confirmed after the Gamescon reveal.) GW2 Site link: http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/necromancer/
hero-mesmer.jpg
Mesmer. Do you like being FABULOUS? How about shooting laser beams? Teleporting around the battlefield and fucking with your enemies? Then mesmers are for you. These masters of illusion and charm can change the flow of a battle and distract and fool enemies with a wide variety of cool abilities, including splitting into mirror images that shatter and damage close foes, AOE invisibility and mantras, abilities which can be charged up prior to an engagement and then used in conjunction with other skills at any time for powerful combos. They are among the more complex classes in GW2, but are sure to delight anyone interested in a unique magic profession that can do some pretty incredible fakeouts and tricks. And look great while doing it! (Officially confirmed after a short pre-reveal by some European game journalists who linked the skill trailer (in French) to Youtube two days early, thus spoiling Arenanet's humorous "Minstrel" class reveal stunt, which still went ahead and was still full of fun and bad vocals. The first of many Mesmer tricks to be sure). GW2 Site link: http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/mesmer/

3 Adventurer Professions:
hero-ranger.jpg
Ranger. The bow and arrows trailblazer, a survivalist of the wild who is the master of the lonely places of the world and nature, calling forth a loyal animal companion and the spirits of the elements to aid them and their party in any situation. Versatile and awesome, think WoW's hunter with less retarded pets and more interesting skillsets. This profession was a fan favourite of the original and promises to be all that and more in GW2. GW2 Site Link: http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/ranger/
hero-thief.jpg
Thief. This is the trademark rogue style class, a sneaky and stealthy assassin who sticks daggers in mans and dances around the battlefield picking enemies off at will. This incarnation of the rogue style class structure comes with some marked differences over a WoW style rogue, among the biggest being the limited, tactical nature of stealth, the use of small firearms as active weapons, and the ability to steal generic objects from a target (and not their inventory) which creates new, powerful skillsets on a whim to be used against the target with devastating results. Thieves are all about being subtle, graceful, ambushing from the darkness and keeping an enemy preoccupied, as well as setting traps, and will fit in nicely with support groups in need of a backup plan. GW2 Site Link: http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/thief/
hero-engineer.jpg
Engineer. Engineers are a sexy departure from regular MMO class conventions. They throw down turrets like Team Fortress 2's beloved practical problem solver, concoct grenades and alchemical healing potions among other things to aid in battle and help allies, and generally control the tactical situation of the battlefield with mines, traps and a good old fashioned firearm at their side. This class, the much hypothesized gun class of GW2, as well possesses tool kits and other useful skills to further customize their role in the field, making Engineers that much more expert at what they do. These guys are no joke, and are sure to be the bane of many a foolhardy player in PvP. GW2 Site Link: http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/engineer/

2 Soldier Professions:
hero-warrior.jpg
Warrior. The typical damage sponge plate wearing melee fighter. Warriors have a variety of skill and damage options related to the variety of weapons they can use in game. They use an adrenaline system, similar to WoW warrior's rage, to build up the energy nessecary for performing a variety of cool abilities, including burst abilities for quick attacks. They also use a variety of buffing abilities related to Shout commands and the use of banners to target enemies and buff allies on the fly in combat. (Now officially confirmed, this class was in the previous Guild Wars and has been mentioned in various Guild Wars 2 Combat and Gameplay articles released so far, side by side with the released Elementalist. It's safe to say Warriors will be returning to GW2, and their combat videos attest to not only their awesomeness, but to the fluid appearance and natural flow of combat gameplay in GW2). GW2 Site Link: http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/warrior/
hero-guardian.jpg
Guardian. The penultimate paladin-esc class described aptly by Ravious of Kill Ten Rats as "a warrior steak with a side of monk potatoes and a small helping of ritualist carrots all covered in paragon gravy". Guardians excel at battle control, defence and support of their allies without the need to make red health bars go up or hold aggro on big scary monsters, preferring instead to think more like a tactician and leader. They can put up wards and shields, buff themselves and allies, and put the hurt on enemies as good as any other. Roll this profession if you want to play Guild Wars 2 as a more support minded character, minus the strict role settings of the Trinity design. (Confirmed by ArenaNet, this class is the second Solider plate wearing class in GW2 as well as the noteworthy first major game reveal of 2011. Grab your popcorn! It's only going to get better as the months pass). GW2 Site Link: http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/professions/guardian/

http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/?lang=en

Dungeon Section: (This section will expand as we gain more information on Dungeons in the game, indexed based on level requirements.)

From what we know from this article (http://www.pcgamer.com/2010/10/19/gu...ngeon-reveals/), courtesy of reVerse, dungeons are entered for the first time in a setting known as Story Mode, where your characters interact with one or more members of the adventuring group known as Destiny's Edge. These characters will guide a group through their personal story and connect it to the overarching plot as well as what's going on story wise in the instance, and aid the player in combat.
Explorable Mode unlocks afterwards for when you return each time to the instance once you've beaten it in Story Mode. Explorable mode is a random generation dungeon type where the actions you took with your group in Story Mode have consequences to what enemies will spawn and what events will occur within the instance.
This is intended as being a replay friendly mechanic, so that dungeons remain vibrant and fun after the first few runs.
Both modes will have loot, including sets for each profession, and grouping is reported to be very easy, in lieu of as of yet unreleased game systems for grouping. NPC heroes like those from GW1 will not be returning, so expect to group like in other MMOs with players for GW2, which is arguably better anyways.

UPDATE (06/24/11): Watch these videos and read this blog article for more updated info, impressions and a showcase of one of GW2's premiere mid range dungeons, Catacombs of Ascalon.

    Part 2 of the OP:

    PvP Section:

    Clash.jpg
    I considered writing something thoughtful and provocative here, but really, all you need to know about how amazing this game's Player versus Player components are can be found in the below image:
    gw2-beta-8.jpg

    The WvWvW map. 3 server territories and one neutral area in the bottom middle. Takes about a half hour to walk from one end to the other, for size scale, though you probably will never need to do that as there is plenty of fast travel waypoints between key areas available.

    And some videos:

















    You got World versus World versus World, which is three servers fighting over an inter-dimensional battlefield filled with castles and stuff to capture, and you have more structured PvP formats like the Battle of Kyhlo, where the focus is smaller and more traditional and very skill based. All of this is separated from the PvE experience to prevent griefing and factional server splits. ArenaNet is committed to creating a PvP experience that is both accessible to the wider playerbase found in PvE and making it exciting and engaging for them to try from time to time, while also making the system balanced and deep enough so as to support competitive E-sports style PvP on both a large and small scale.

    scaled.php?server=856&filename=mmunclesam.png&res=landing

    You better believe a lot of us here on the forums will live and breathe GW2 PvP. Commander Corehealer is looking for a few good men to take that keep up on the hill...

    If you haven't got the patience to play EvE's PvP scene or you missed out on DAoC's borderlands skirmishes and keep sieges, or you are simply bored of WoW's stale format and want something different, here is where your server pride will be resurrected in a crucible of fire. Get ready to kill some mans.
    OCD Guide to GW2's economy and resource system:

    VIrYg.png

    Gems = Currency bought with real money which can be traded within the in game economy for gold and services. Gems are used to purchase in game store vanity items.
    Gold = In game currency, acquired through various means, such as selling in game goods and services, PvP and PvE dynamic events. It is used for the majority of in game item and service purchases, much like in other games.
    Karma = A resource procured along with gold and experience from dynamic events and completing personal story objectives, among other things. It is used to purchase the PvE versions of gear upgrades for every 5 levels, up to the max of 80.
    Glory = The PvP version of Karma acquired in WvW and battleground PvP. Used to purchase the PvP versions of gear upgrades for every 5 levels up to a max of 80.
    (Note: All gear acquired in PvP and PvE, regardless of how, is useable in both PvP and PvE without any serious handicaps, and both can be upgraded using crafting skills as well).
    Supply = A WvW exclusive resource acquired from various control points and resource nodes found across the WvW maps. After they are captured for your server, players and caravans must transport limited amounts of supply from them in waves to keeps and other strong points to build up the defensive structures and traps of said areas, as well as hire NPC guards to defend them. They must also transport supply as well as a schematic (acquired at any large keep from a quartermaster for gold) for the specific type of siege weapon they wish to build at the site of a keep siege as an attacking force. Siege weapons include battering rams, catapults, trebuchets and Asuran siege golems. Supply cannot be used outside of WvW.
    Another resource, Renown, exists for guilds, but we do not presently know what it's function is in relation to guild advancement and the rest of the game economy.

    PAthread.jpg

    Because it's just as much about the people you're with as it is about crushing skulls and storytime.

    This post is reserved for future guild(s) information/how to get in/PA community stuff concerning release. PA community being these guys and gals:

    QLSzs.jpg
    BETA STUFF:
    Official Beta Server and Unofficial Launch Server is FORT ASPENWOOD. Overflow BWE server for convenience will be determined as needed/based on availability. Please go to Fort Aspenwood if you wish to play with PA peeps. Our guilds are all cross server and account/character wide, and so once you join, you'll be able to chat with people regardless of server. Server transfers are also free in the BWE (gems will be required to switch servers after Saturday at 6pm PDT; they are also free to obtain).

    Guide for switching Servers:

    In character select, right after login. In the Bottom left corner of the screen.

    Select "World Selection" > Select "Transfer World" > Select "Server you want".


    NDA restrictions of beta content sharing has now been lifted for April's BWE and all following BWEs leading to release. (BWE = Beta Weekend Event, btw, as all betas we are aware of thus far have been on the weekend and all future ones we are aware of will be on the weekend. Future open betas closer to release may be handled differently).

    Current BWE as of this edit was this last weekend, the 20th of July to the 22nd. The game will be going live in late August (August 28th General Admittance).


    OFFICIAL PA BETA GUILD(S):
    - What A Nice Guild [NICE] (GM: Corehealer/Sarah Corehealer)
    - Kryta City Hotsteppers [KCHS] (GM: Tolerant Zero/Rex Coppercutter)
    This list is subject to change in release, but will serve for now as a list of guilds we create now or later for more specific purposes in PvP and PvE. The GW2 Guild system allows players to be in multiple guilds simultaneously, so we will be using a prime guild (NICE) for networking between smaller, specialized guilds that will be focused on specific aspects of the game. More on all that later as we get closer to release. If you have suggestions for this list, names, or are creating a guild for EU/AU or a subset of one of the main guilds, please contact me or one of the officers in NICE.

    Guilds are also trans-server and account wide; as long as you select to represent a specific guild on a specific character, you will be able to chat with and see the status of anyone on any server in that guild. You will not lose membership in your other guilds, you will simply not be actively representing all but one of them on a given character.

    You can find PA people using GW2 UI's social networking style Contacts tab, shown in a few of the press beta videos, to search for familiar faces and the above guild. When I am in the beta, I will do my best to manage the guild and get the PA peeps in each event networked, so PM Trajan/Sarah Corehealer in game to get in touch with me. If nothing else, try asking in general chat for any PA people, specifically in starting areas or cities.

    Allows for you to go through the character creation process, even 'choose' your look via screenshots.
    Streamchan

    Useful all around tool that has most skill/trait information. Disclaimer: It's in french, but there's a little button to make it show in the Queen's English. *Monocle*
    LUNA-ATRA

    Only provides the traits but all around seems to have a bit more information, sadly neither tools have info on all traits.

    VC INFO:
    For the April BWE we will be using the following Teamspeak 3 server provided by Draygo (seriously, look at how much effort he put into this thing):

    totallyawesomets2.png

    Server IP: 66.135.59.185:9999
    Password: pa
    Admins: Corehealer, Entaru, Draygo, Enig, Geod


    This is most likely a permanent setup for the BWEs and future events/release now because Draygo has put a lot of work into this solution and has swayed myself and Entaru with it's beauty, icons, functionality and abuse of admin power. It also holds 100+ seats up to a maximum of about 300, more then we really need but excellent nonetheless.
    It is very unlikely that we will need help funding any server upkeep at this time. If we do we will put it up here.


    Livestream: (ON HIATUS AGAIN WHILE I GET IT SET UP AND PLANNED OUT BETTER FOR POSTLAUNCH. WILL DO SOME TESTING POSTLAUNCH. HELP APPRECIATED).
    Also, I have a livestream that I'm currently playing around with and tweaking in preparation for GW2, with it being the main focus of my channel. Expect to see it and assorted other games there with live commentary by yours truly with some guest commentary via our GW2 Ventrilo/Skype. Link is here and in my signature. http://www.twitch.tv/corehealer

    This post is now the Penny Arcade Guild Wars 2 Teamspeak FAQ, written by Draygo for everyone's convenience. Server seats 100+ people and everything you want to know about it can be found below or by asking Draygo, as he put it together and has been hosting these servers for years.

    Q) Where do I get it:

    Download teamspeak here: http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=downloads
    You can get teamspeak for windows, mac, and linux. As well as your Ithing and your android, if you so prefer.


    Q) Cool, I installed it, now what?

    Now you must connect to our totally awesome server. In order to do that you must first run teamspeak. Then hit Connections at the top. Select Connect.

    connections.png

    Now you must enter the server details:

    Server Address: 66.135.59.185:9999
    Nickname: Your forum or In Game Name
    Password: pa


    server.png

    Q) What does the banner in the top right do?

    PAthread.jpg

    The community thread banner when clicked on will open the most recent guild wars 2 thread on penny arcade.

    Q) How do I add a class or race icon next to my name?

    You do this by right clicking yourself, put your mouse over server group, then left click any of the categories named with the race or class you want to choose. You can uncheck them at any time to remove the icon.


    Q) Who are the server admins?

    They are Draygo, Corehealer, Entaru, Geod, and Enig.

    Q) So is there a skin/theme for this?

    totallyawesomets2.png

    Yes and you can download it from our lobby. Right click the lobby, and select open file browser. You will see the installer file at the top. Download and run that file to skin your client.

    filebrowser.png

    In order to activate the theme/skin you need to go to settings->options, and click design on the left.

    theme.png

    Then select Theme and change it to PA Guild Wars 2.

    Q) Who made the theme?

    Draygo did.

    Q) How do I change my name?

    Right click yourself and select change nickname. You can do this at any time. Do not change your name to impersonate an admin.

    Q) What rules can I expect?

    Don't be a dick. No personal attacks except 'silly goose', forum rules apply. If it is not appropriate on the forums, it is also not appropriate in teamspeak.

    Q) Someone is breaking the rules, or is being disruptive, but no server admins are online. How do I complain.

    First, I hope you can all be gentlemen and resolve disputes by yourselves. If someone is being a dick, you can fill out a complaint. Right click someone and click make a complaint. Do not abuse this feature. If 5 people complain about one person in a short amount time, that person will be temp banned from the server. Do not abuse this. Admins will see the complaints that lead to the temp banning and will be unhappy to fix it.

    Q) Can I make my own channels?

    Yes!
    Teamspeak is setup that you can make your own channels in any of the major channels (Except Admin HQ, Lobby, and Afk, for obvious reasons) First enter the channel you want to make the sub-channel in. Right click the parent channel and select, create sub channel. You can enter a name, even a password, as well as set any description you want. After you create the channel, make sure the Audio Codec selected is high enough audio quality.


    Right click the channel you created and click edit channel. Click the audio tab and increase the Quality slider. Also decrease the latency slider to reduce lag time. Quality 7, latency 1 are the recommended settings.
    These channels are temp only, when the last person leaves them they are automatically cleaned up.


    channel.png

    channel2.png

    The person who created the channel is the op of the channel and can kick people from the channel (not server). So if you created your own channel and want to remove someone, you can password protect it and remove the troublesome individual.


    Q) Is there an overlay plugin?

    Yes. There is a built in overlay plugin. To enable it, select settings then plugins. Check the teamspeak overlay plugin and then click settings on the bottom to configure it. Here you can configure any color of each of the elements, as well as transparency settings. I recommend you change the input settings to enable mouse polling, and change the initialization mode to minimal. Minimal mode only displays the one person who is talking, the other mode displays everyone in your channel even those that are talking.

    Q) Does teamspeak work with my G15 keyboard.

    Yes. There is a plugin for that. Pretty easy to configure again settings->plugins, and enable the G15 keyboard.

    Also:

    TS3 Overlay for GW2:

    Here's how to get the overlay working without graphical glitches:

    1. Go to Settings->Plugins in TS3.
    2. Select GW2.exe in the Profile dropdown.
    3. Uncheck all the Direct3D options, except for Direct3D 9 (which is what GW2 uses).
    4. Switch to Input tab
    5. Check "Enable Mouse Poll" and "Use in-game" cursor
    6. Switch to extended, and check "Used ID3DDevice:Present hook..." (This is what fixes the animations not showing in GW2)

    The only thing that I've seen, is I can't move the window around in game, but otherwise it works! You can still set the initial position during the login screen, but once in the game you can't move it. I recommend right clicking on the overlay too and changing the overlay to Full display.

    Yeah, time for us Euros to talk a bit.

    Option A: play with the main PA guild, have a US server as the home server for wuvwuv with the 'murricans. Upside: lots of other people to wuvwuv with. Downside: timezone issues.

    Option B: Euro home server. We can still guest the US servers for PVE, but no wuvwuv with the American PAers. We'd also have to represent our own guild to gain influence, so no guild chat with the US side while doing that.

    @Echo Your option B is not accurate. Cross-server guilds are supported quite nicely in GW2. Euro players can be in the main PA guild even if they don't choose a US server for their home server. So they have two options:

    Home on a Euro server. They will have a separate influence pool they earn themselves, but they can still be in the main PA guild and have guild chat. They can guest to US servers for PvE times if they like, and have a potentially better WvW experience (lower ping / proper timezone).

    Home on a US server. If they choose to WvW with the US players, they could make the US server (Fort Aspenwood) their home and guest back to Euro servers for low-ping PvE (if necessary).

    Regarding what I said above, you guys could quite easily be in the main/US guild, but designating a Euro server seems like a good idea either way.

    This is a thing?! If so, that is amazing. I had no idea the guild functionality went that far.

    How would influence etc work? Would there just be a big central pool of it, or is the influence server by server?

    From the previous thread.

    It's per server. Like when we moved to Frost Gate in BWE2, we lost all the influence and perks we had on Fort Aspenwood.

    Yeah, it was pretty good thinking on their part (most things are in GW2). Eric Flannum described it as different "chapters" of one guild. So we would share the guild name and chat, but US/EU would have separate influence/upgrades. I think sharing the chat would be great because we can then easily organise for stuff on either server (thanks to guesting).

    That is quite literally how I feel. So psyched. We should probably get some EU officers sorted out as well then.

    I literally know nothing, but would assume that you would gain influence for your declared server? So you guesting on EU would still raise the influence for NA?

    That would be the most logical anyhow.

    Actually, how will they log the active population influence? Will it just be x of y are registered USA and playing USA so they get that much influence, whereas z of y EU are playing EU and so they get that much influence?

    Anyone in the guild doing events/PvP on the EU server will be earning influence for the guild on that server, and vice versa. Simple as that 8-)

    They said they would, and it still says that on the website (plus, they did it for GW1 also). They didn't say when it would be though.

    Also - sitjumping does make a return in limited form. There are certain environmental effects which can knock your character down for an extended period of time... which DOESN'T lock the spacebar like /sit and /sleep does.

    I wish I could remember specifically what effect did it... I remember announcing to the map "Return of sitjump!" but can't remember where it happened now... :-/

    So I'll probably mention this again closer to release but after spending most of Sunday doing Structured PvP I kind of want to start running some kind of guild team for tournaments and the like. We don't need a specific roster or something serious just a specific spot of time to give people the chance to play sPvP with an organized team.

    I said this in the last thread, but asuras have disney eye's i think that what make them cute that they look right out of some disney movie or don bluth.

    anyways i feel better from last night, my cousin and his friends are not bad people and himand most are looking forward to GW2, it just there been burned on MMO's on the past since most have been hyped, he got conan, WAR, and rift and he feel like there fail. it also don't help that he did not like GW1 and it really heard to explan that the only thing in common with the two games is the world. i know he will buy the game and play it, it just he don't want to get burned like the rest.

    I hope Dawnguard comes out soon so I can spend the next month in a memory-less haze of late night gaming and work. It will be like a time machine

    So the doll was burned by overconfident developers who didn't know how to manage such a large project and set unrealistic goals for themselves
