They should give you a code. I personally don't see why you would want to do this, it's better to just buy directly from ANet. Either way you have to digitally download the client, and the ANet version is the same price (if not cheaper because you may not even have tax depending on your location).

You have to go to gamestop to get the CE, and some people like to physically have the games.

Has anyone in this thread actually played yet, and if so, how was it thus far with what you got a chance to do? Any opinions and answers welcomed, but it'd also be nice to hear from someone who has an experience with various MMOs, even World of Warcraft. I think this is the most excited I've been for a game in a long time, it looks very promising if things go as smooth as they say it should.

With the NDA I don't think they would be allowed to tell you anything or even if they played it, unless it was at a convention.
post #165 of 316
Ah, you're right, the NDA hasn't been lifted yet. I thought it was because they were discussing personal experiences on the GW2 subreddit a few days ago.
post #166 of 316
Well.

I'm kinda pissed. Pre-purchased today, tried to link it to my account. Said invalid password. Tried to log into GW, got same error, logged into my NCSoft Master Account and changed that though and can log in now. After my account issues earlier this month, I'm pissed. Never had something like this happen to me.

Then when I go to register the Key I got in an email, it says the Key is already registered.

ArenaNet, first the disappointing CE & DDE, and now this? And now I can't even contact support?

CE has been sold out everywhere for awhile now and to my understanding there really isn't a true "physical" version of the game that will include the entire client. The CE comes with 1 DVD, and 1 soundtrack. Even compressed, 1 DVD will not come close to storing this entire game. I believe they said on twitter that the physical versions of the game will not have the complete client, or anywhere near recent builds.

Anyone pre-purchasing will also already have the up to date client downloaded before they can get their real physical copy of the game. I really don't see the point of the physical standard edition. You'd still have to download over half the game.

I've never had any issues like this with GW1 or GW2. Are you sure you don't have a keylogger and/or got hacked? You are linking the GW2 to your GW1 account correct? The master account is not used for GW2. Why couldn't you contact support? I suggest going onto live chat and see what they say.

played it back in 2010 at the NYCC Meet & Greet, it was pretty damn good. i have played many mmo's, from EQ, DAoC, AC, AC2, woW, etc. GW2 is quite good, and it really is different. this is not "it's like wow but..." and this game actually addresses a lot of problems that people have with MMO's.

this podcast is a great, insightful discussion of the game.

I just looked at the GameStop website, and it didn't say anything about it being sold out. I'm just confused how I prepurchase online from GS, as I know how to do it in person, but not online.

That is interesting. It appears that GameStop is giving the bonus just for pre-ordering.

Pre-order Guild Wars 2 with GameStop and receive Beta Access and other items!

It doesn't seem that they are planing on charging in full either at this point online.


Also, if you believe that GameStop has some insider information it appears that the beta weekend will start on the 27th.

Beta Access, beginning the last week of April
