Sorrow's Furnace it is!

Our old pal Seraph, now known as [FDG] Dredd, should be contacted for a FDG invitation. However, one of the nice things about the GW2 guild system is that you can join multiple guilds, and I'm pretty sure the guilds can span servers. Ergo, it makes good sense to belong to both FDG and FnG - play FnG when the Euros are on, and FDG during NA prime time. I believe they'll make it reasonably easy to join another server as guest - but some boons that arise from your server's success in world vs world battles will not accrue when you're playing on a guest server. So it's not perfect.

Of the old NA FnG crowd, I believe Kril, Malvos, EP, Nihilist, and I are on board with GW2. That's all I know of ... Maybe Drew, but I've heard hide nor hair of him in months. Archer & Seraph, too. Archer's FDG name is Factor, IIRC. Drew is a.k.a. [FDG] Ripple if he comes back around.

Over on our end, we've heard nothing from Drew for 6 months now. Sorry. :(

Drew's gone AWOL for longer than 6 months at a time. He'll return, all messianic-like.

If you want to be ready for this weekend's start, be sure you run the client for a download each night.
Game's got a hell of a lot of big files and they're changing bunches of 'em every day.

The download was so long and slow two nights ago, I let it run overnight.
It finished, but when I checked it the next day, there was already more stuff to d/l. :horror:

You don't want to get caught trying to pull a couple gigs down off ANet's slammed servers when the doors open this weekend... you'll burn hours waiting to get in.

hth,
--kril out-- :mrgreen:

Currently up to date and the last 25000 files took between 2-3 hours at 250-300kb a second
