Re: Official Guild Wars 2 Thread

Guild name for DSLR Guild? Any ideas? Also you get a 4 Letter tag for your guild.

Watched the french character creation vids or Slyvari and Asura. Holy shit! Very cool armor for both. Except the Asura Mesmer. Very dull.

I actually had no desire to roll a Sylvari but I think I have to now. Asura will still be main though.

Slyvari

(PRIVATE now but will probably go public today)

Asura

Titan Alliance (currently 8 impressive guilds) will be on Jaya Bluffs. If you want to be on a powerhouse WvW server, that's the one.

must be high population! (without high population, open world random events would be boring without others around)

must be pvp!

I bet you a lot of the big pvp guilds will join a handful of servers and destroy other servers in WvWvW. I wonder what arenanet will do to ensure it's not always a roflstomp.

Also, is it true they lock servers when they're full? Seems to be some concern that if your guild pre-orders for head start and you login at launch and can't create characters on your guilds server...

I agree. I know not everyone is into PvP but it would be important to be on a good pvp server.

As long as we kill in WvWvW don't care which server we pick.

For Server Choices I have seen:

Crystal Desert
Jaya Bluffs
Sorrow's Furnace

Someone make a poll?!

I'd roll a sylvari. In betas I play just about everything but the race/class I want to play at launch. I know that sounds stupid but I hate doing the same starting quests twice.

Would not matter. Whether they did wipe or not, I can almost bet on all the "testers" rolling one of those two if they are available.

I do wonder if they will open up the other two races for the final beta weekend. Cabbage Heads and Asura. Peoples opinions seems to be split on this for next beta.

If they DO decide to open up all races, they should wipe all characters to simulate launch day.

I played C9 a bit over the weekend.

I still enjoy watching videos of people playing GW2 more than I enjoy playing C9.

That's pretty funny.

How you feel about Diablo, that's where I'm at with GW2. I've waited for this game for a loooong time, and I'm pretty amp'd it's finally here. So many times I heard little nuggets of info here and there about it being developed, then finally went into development (which has been a long ass time), but never a real release date. Several false ones floated out, or expected ETA's that were years off.

It's just finally here...I'm totally excited and really can't wait to hit the servers on 8/25.

I'm tempted to schedule days off, but I know better...I know how launches go, and even the smoothest have hiccups that can sting if you're sitting around waiting....so, I'll hold off until its stable and then take a few days..hehheh.

August 28th, 2012 release date. Game is pretty fun from what I have played in Beta.

I'm just shooting it up in BF3 as I wait for GW2 now.

I was going to play some BF3 the other day, but I didnt feel like buying the Premium Pack. I might do it once I get my new PC. My laptop runs the game just fine at nearly maxed out settings, but I want to enjoy BF3 on 22" of man monitor.

Played C9 open beta this weekend.

It is "OK"... needs some polish in areas

Is it worth dedicating hours upon hours on? probably not

Is is better than Vindictus and Dragon Nest? Probably... it is highly instanced just like them... and action combat as well

I'll probably ultimately pass on C9 and just wait for GW2

Do I get BWE access with a pre-ORDER or only a pre-PURCHASE!?

Prepurchase only. That'll get you access to the last BWE and a 3 day headstart. Preorder will get you a one day head start and no BWE access.

I played on Sorrow's Furnace. I was so lost in WvWvW but we were winning. I'm down for anything.

You can try the Continent of the 9th Seal open beta that just started. Not as fun or polished as GW2 of course but it may do the trick. DO NOT listen to the in game music. It is HORRIBLE.

Man oh man... one has to offer his first born before even being allowed anywhere near this C9 game, and then, once the resident watchdog is installed, insist you use it's "safari" based browser which keeps you running in circles without ever getting a chance to "start" the game.

Too many hoops to jump to get from here to there. I'll keep to the old school and wait patiently.

Jaya Bluffs has a large WvW alliance going on that is quite successful. Jaya Bluffed roflstomped ever server tossed at it. I think it was 5 allied guilds spread accross AUS, US and EURO so that when one was sleeping the others kept watch in the WvW.

I just found a video for this Alliance that played on Jaya Bluffs during BWE2. The guilds in this alliance are impressive.

said by Goggalor:

So, since no one has offered an alternative, Crystal Desert (as suggested by Rod) looks to be the DSLR server of choice.

I'll offer a couple. Sorrow's Furnace (never lost at WvWvW that I know of) and Darkhaven (also strong in WvWvW but lost to Sorrows Furnace (/flex)). Both servers I know will be very quick out of the gate, both will be full. Lots of strong guilds there.

Any other suggestions?
