being its free to play, and from the beta, pretty fun, figured we could start a thread and stuff of whose going to play.

Also, Im pretty sure myself and some friends will be playing on Tarnished Coast.

As for class, im stuck between Necro and Mesmer. Both seem pretty sweet!

if GW has anything to say about it:
necro was amazing, but only if you cross classed the right skills.
mesmer were by far the hardest to play, but very effective once you got it down.

a couple months ago my gf and i were insanely excited for this game. but recently i've been hearing it's just more of the same...

it's gonna have to be something very unique for us to get into it.

my stance on MMOs is: if it's just a shittier version of WoW, I might as well play WoW.

thats a pretty good stance.

I was actually very meh about it until a couple of days ago when i got super excited. maybe it was finally playing the beta for a couple hours. The two classes I am interested in seem very fun and atypical (Especially Mesmer). The PvP seems pretty amazing, especially the WvWvW.

I think it might be enough different from WoW to be worth trying, PLUS there is no monthly fee.

yeah the fact that there is no monthly fee means i might still get it :D

i want it to be really different and really good. i want ArenaNet to succeed simply because they are trying something different.

how was the combat? i heard the combat wasn't that great. maybe people just like talking shit i wanna try it.

as a Necromancer, every spell i casted (WHILE MOVING BY THE WAY!) had a nice pop.

Like, I played in The Secret World beta, and I loved everything in that game EXCEPT the combat. The combat felt too bland and never did I feel like i was doing something action packed. Which is like 80% of the game.

So, just necro alone GW2 is at least very much better than TSW(in my opinion) simply based on combat. Watching the videos of the Mesmer, I dont see how combat with that class could get boring, that class looks fun as hell.

watch these.

:D i actually watched those videos on kotaku right before i read your post.

the thing with combat in games is that it has to feel right to me. i've gotten excited over so many games watching trailers and stuff and then i finally try them out and something just doesn't feel right. and other times i try a game i had no interest in previously and suddenly something clicks and i go "this is awesome, i need this game."

i hope Guild Wars 2 clicks with me.

basically its 3 servers fighting eachother in these HUGE maps. The maps have several objectives that help certain things during the battle. There is like a two week war where you battle these other two servers. If your server wins, everyone on your server gets cool buffs. So, you will want to win. And its rotating each two weeks so you fight new people and stuff. Im sure they will do more with this too. rankings and what not.

So thats more or less what it is, but how does it work?

Well, you open a menu that shows the score between the servers, then you tell it you want to participate, and it should take you to one the five maps people are fighting over. Once there, all your stats are bolstered to level 80ish stats. But you only have the skills and equipment you had when you entered. The cool thing is in these maps, you can still earn EXP. Doing quests that help your server and stuff. Its not 100% pvp. There are monsters and stuff. So you can level and get gear and craft. So you and 100s of other guys can all team up and head for an objective to take. You claim places........... wait...

here...

I have tested this GW2 thoroughly and I can only conclude that it is not an immediate waste of time.

That means I will play it. I'll pop in later on to check and see if we decided on a server ;)

I actually didnt ask :P I was going to sing it but Careless (my buddy) decided to surprise me with a quick version on Friday.

Somehow me and Careless are now actually friends :) So I sent him the lyrics telling him my plans and then he steals my thunder :P
