    Much discussion of poultry will happen before too long.

    What'd they leave out? Is there an official and final ruleset list now? Where?

    There are going to be 3 types at launch - Core, RP, and Open. RP is like Core, just with enforced thee's and thou's. Open isn't very open at all. While you can fight in the PvE areas, if you are lv 21 (3rd tier) and you choose to go back and help your level 20 friend (2nd tier) from being obliterated by 2 attackers, you'll turn into a chicken. The End. Now that -might- get tweaked, but no tweaking of this has been suggested from what I'm reading so far. Of course there is plenty of time for this to change.

    EDIT here's also some other stuff that seems to go counter to an Open RvR mechanic, but I'm not comfortable going much further into the specifics.

    My understanding was that I couldn't roll a 401k into a Roth without the penalties outweighing the benefits?

    This game looks like it could be pretty good, the whole 20 classes thing and none of them being directly shared across factions is a neat change coming from WoW. I'm most interested in the magus, mostly cause being stuck to a flying disc seems kinda cool to me.

    I just wish they would let me into the beta so I could get rid of the whole "party down the street and I'm not invited" feeling, like someone was talking about earlier.

    It really depends on how much you already have invested, where you have it invested and what kind of tax implications you would have for moving it. I have my retirement split into both a roth and a regular 401k (with more of it going to the regular) so if I ever have a life-crisis I can take it out from the roth at will without being fucked over by the IRS.

    If you play a game and then are able to spend pages debating with someone on the actions of a faction within that game you probably just played a pretty sweet game.

    I have a feeling you're a bit older than I am, I've invested practically nothing in my regular IRA at this point because I'm almost certain to get taxed on it at a higher rate later on. Right now I'm on a "buy and hold" strategy with some mutual funds because current market fundamentals don't respect intrinsic value; about 10% of my assets are in my Roth IRA, 35% are in regular mutual funds, 25% is in bond funds, and the remaining 30% is in either money markets or CDs--this last bit is the lump I keep around in case of a rainy day so I don't need to worry about market fluctations. Also, my broker insured the money market funds, and the CDs are FDIC insured. The interest and dividends get reinvested back into the down market in anticipation for it being "up" again in the next few years.

    I take it back, you're actually several years younger than me. I work for a non-profit right now so my annual earning potential is far below where it's going to be when I get back into the private sector. It thus makes more sense for me to eat the taxes now and invest in the Roth so I can get get it out tax-free later. And since I want to buy a hosue when the market bottoms out on that later I'm trying to keep a fair chunk available for use within the next year.

    Yeah but between the down market and my non-profit earnings being lower than my private-sector earning potential, I'd rather pour money into it for the time being and let it explode when the economy starts growing again. I have enough set aside that I can probably afford to wait it out. Much like a Dwarf waiting with his stuntie bretheren as the Orkz feebly hurl themselves at his gates.

    Think integrated PvP, PvE, items, quests, cities, and the ability to attack 15th century Germans with a tiny green goblin who speaks with a Cockney accent.

    That's about half of it.

    Okay. If you'd like to use a source other than Wikipedia, I recommend the Bureau of Economic Analysis, a subdivision of the United States Department of Commerce.

    Um, waaaagh.

    edit: it's occured to me that you may have meant the Current Dollar GDP grew by 3.2%. Which is true. "Current Dollar GDP" is a nice way of saying "we didn't adjust for inflation so this number is essentially meaningless."
