GW2 Final Beta Weekend + Launch Date!

Postby [FnG] Da Kril » Thu Jun 28, 2012 4:41 pm

ArenaNet president Mike O'Brien has announced the Guild Wars 2 official launch date!

Tuesday, August 28, 2012

This means that those who have pre-purchased can start playing on Saturday, August 25, I think. :yahoo:

The Final Weekend Beta Event is scheduled for July 20–22.




Um, yay? :woot: :woot:
:lollipop:

I also found out that I can't take that week off of work :( but I do feel a cough coming on and it seems like a bad one :thumbup:

Whats the plans if they decide to do a full wipe on the servers?

Who's planning on being 1st online to set the guild up ect.
If they do a midnight start is anyone else planning on being up then? (If it is midnight then I'll be playing)

Duh, who needs doorhandles, that would mean you want to go 'OUTSIDE' . . . away from the computers, away from online gaming . . . :panic:

Hi all

So have the beta's improved as each new one is released? Cause I decided to stop playing them as I want everything to be fresh for when the full game is out (as opposed to getting the feeling of been there, done that).

Have there been many changes? Have things that people complained about during the first beta been fixed?

Honestly I'm not to sure as I've only played the first beta and I'll be playing this weekends beta. A few things I have noticed on the rare chances I had a few minutes on the other betas there have been improvements to the UI, load times and over all stability.

What I'm looking to see changed corrected is the difficulty of the starter areas when they have a mass rush of characters like what happened with the charr areas and them becoming vastly difficult.

Non- prepurchase standard edition now at £34.97 on amazon as opposed to £49.99 for the prepurchase if you dont care about the head start.
Thats starting to sound a lot more tempting....

I'm assuming that in store prices will also be at £30-35 which sounds better than the £45

Greetings gang, long time no see. I've missed the other BWEs and hope to play this weeked (assuming my old computer can handle the client). Is there guild functionality in the beta? I would love to party up with some of the old NA folk.

There is indeed guilds that have been set-up, FnG is currently on the Vabbi server but not sure on the NA FDG players as there have been a few world reductions this time around and the server they were playing on has been removed.

Actually it seems the NA players have gone with Sorrow's Furnace for this weekend.
