post #5831 of 10385
I haven't even started playing yet and I have 2 MAJOR issues with this game, although I'm sure once I do get to play I'll love it.

1. No server queues. This problem probably won't be as much of a problem shortly as the load eases off... but atm its kind of annoying, and it could cause issues during big events (holidays etc)

2. Servers. Cannot stand this. I have a dozen friends playing this game, but none of them are friends so they're all on different servers. How exactly am I supposed to play with my friends... much less pick which friend I want to play with permanently (unless I wish to pay extra...)?

Edit: It seems I was mistaken! http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Home_server#Home_world

At launch players will be able to transfer between worlds freely. [1] Once server populations have largely settled and stabilized, world transfers will be restricted to once a week and cost a variable amount of gems based on the population of the world being transferred to: 500, 1,000 or 1,800 (for low, medium, or high population, respectively)[2] In addition, after changing to a new home world, players will lose their power of the Mists bonuses until the beginning of the next World versus World match.

You won't see queue box 50/2000. You will start playing an Overflow server (ghost / temp server). You can still join your friend by using party invite and right click on your friend avatar click "Join In....". So you both see each other.

 

You will not be disappointed. (Join In, maybe bugged.) it works sometime.

I am having way too much fun with this game. I did more exploring than leveling but I got a 29 elementalist so far.

Did exactly the same thing, but I stopped around 24 and didn't get nearly that much map completion.

I am incredibly entertained by crafting in this game. There is loads of exp to be had as well. I accidently spent almost 30 silver at one point on cooking supplies. They were not kidding when they said it was the hardest craft. I need more bank and inventory just for cooking ingredients that don't fit in the collectibles tab. On the plus side, I now have a stack of 30m long buffs that give me swiftness/migth 20% of the time I kill an enemy and +10exp from kills. Pies, salad, and hamburgers for everyone!

I also spent a good two+ hours exploring WvW and found a great jumping puzzle where you have to get two key halves to open a vault. I can't get enough of this game.

As mentioned above, the game does have a queue, but it sticks you in an overflow server so you can still play while waiting to get into the main server. As people log out of the main server you are given the option of joining or you can keep playing in the overflow server if you want to. You can even meet up with your friends in overflow servers. All of your progress is still saved. The only thing you can't really do is WvW since you can only play that from your home server.

Overflows also have the added bonus of not tracking which resource nodes you have already gathered, so whenever I get into an overflow I make sure to grab as much iron/food/wood as I can, then the nodes respawn when you get back into the main server.
