I think you put it exactly right. I am super excited for this game but I have given up any expectations of this being like its predecessor. I don't think that it is a bad thing, but the game will be different for sure.

i meant the chances of it being successful, since every single MMO sequel has bombed in comparison to the original. i know it won't be anything like guild wars.

On the Pre-Order topic:
I pre-ordered mine back in June of 2010, when Gamestop had the release date set as 11/02/10. Oh well... I asked them about whether this would cause me problems and they assured me that it wouldn't.


On the topic of whether GW2 will do as well as GW:

I don't know. As I have stated several times, it seems that they are making it more like the MMOs that I DON"T like. A lot of my friends in GW play it because it is NOT those MMOs. So, it may turn out that a lot of the original fan base isn't happy; however, they may end up drawing fans from other MMOs because of these changes....

it's as different from WoW as it is from guild wars. it's simply different, that's why both sides(some GW fans and some WoW fans) say "oh i don't like X game style so i won't like this game".

I skimmed through this thread a bit and with the info about GW2 coming out this year. Was wondering if anyone is starting up an OCN GW2 guild (assuming there is guilds in GW2)? Sorry if I missed this topic in an obvious place, just can't find it redface.gif

I wonder if it's worth playing Guild Wars 1 for the bonus stuff. I'm a sucker for bonus things and anything extra. Especially in an MMO. I've never played GW1 but I'm told its going to be nothing like GW2 so don't expect the entire game to translate over in terms of mechanics? Might see if there's a free trial I can snag and check it out.

I am/was a pretty huge SW:ToR fanboy/supporter and I have no distaste for games because I play what a like and go by my own opinion. Unfortunately I've found myself a bit bored of ToR since hitting 50 and doing raids, pretty much rinse repeat MMO with cinematic story. So needless to say I am looking to see if GW1 might be something I do on the side till GW2 (and while playing ToR), I wonder tho if the bonus stuff is possible to get before the release of GW2? I hate leaving things unfinished! I am insane.
