Very excited about the game, can't wait to get it.

Tho a little bored waiting on it, do you think it would be a silly idea to grab the first guild wars trilogy. It's only £12 on amazon atm!

Just to tide me over for this month, I would get my months worth out of £13 surely and get a feel for the second one.

Advice, is it to late or should I go ahead and grab them.

I honestly wouldn't, the the original Guild Wars trilogy was very fun and I loved it but it took me a little time to get into it since things such as skills and such take some time to obtain and for me the real fun started when I could experiment making builds and whatnot. If I were you I'd save that money and hold off for a couple more days for BWE 3 and play with us then only about a month until it actually releases.

If you're itching to play something then the Steam summer sale is going on right now and there's plenty of cheaper alternatives to hold you over for a while and I think will give more satisfaction in one month than Guild Wars will.

I would download the trial first. I might get attacked for this, but GW1 bored me to death. I fought through the game to get some HOM points for GW2, but I just couldn't keep playing anymore. I'm sure it was cool at the time, and I absolutely love the skill picking system and class hybridization, but the actual gameplay just put me to sleep even thought a lot of the concepts in the game are WAY ahead of its time. I did finish two campaigns, so I got much more for my money than most games nowadays.

Well I remember when gw first came out, me and all my friends grabbed it day 1 and played it for a week got to 20 then all of us went back to wow like most people at the time tongue.gif
It was pritty bad in it's original state imo, I was just wondering if the trilogy with all the expansions had made it alot better.

Having played the beta for the second one, and loved it I was just wondering if the first one had improved at all enough to hold me for a month.

I'm going to be playing on the most popular server, with my experiences with MMO, the highest populated server has the best benefits.

I know it's an opinion, but still tongue.gif

it was dropped like a hot potato due to imbalance, no fun to view and blizzard's inability to make meaningful balance changes in a reasonable amount of time. i was heavy into WoW PVP at the time when it was on MLG(due to it's popularity and nothing else) and i always felt that the battlegrounds were much better suited to eSport than the Arena. it's just too comp heavy, no fun/confusing to watch unless you're an arena head and know everything about it.



as far as this game, here's an old WoW esport vet's take on its PvP vs GW2.
