For the last few years; GW2Guru has been all speculation, over-analysis of every press release, and everyone feeding and feeding into the hype.
Now the game is released, and the groaning and complaining has the driver seat. GW1 players miss the simplicity and buildcrafting, WoW players want raids and endgame cookies, and the console crowd thinks that 2 weeks spent on any endeavor is too long.
It's time to move past this and do like GW1Guru did and become a place for depositing knowledge and good ideas. For instance, posts that let us know about great DE chains that yield lots of XP in early and mid-level areas, or the best route to clear (insert zone) here in the least amount of time.
Some people have been posting crafting guides and other useful things; and that's where these forums need to go.
More than anything I'd like to stop seeing a new "QQ I'm leaving as soon as I can Kung Fu Panda" every hour.

Back to topic, its way too early for this to happen. Once the initial buzz is gone, the forum will cool down. Finally, Guru2 wont ever be like guru1 because they are more choices out there and now gw2 has it own forums, so why come here when you can go there and have to deal with less noise?

People leaving is probably the best thing that can happen to Guru.

I like ANet as a company, but almost no company is going to allow the expression of free thought that we promote here.
Crafting guides, zone guides, levelling guides, and any form of information that makes the experience faster or easier is not in ArenaNet's interests.
If someone created a "level 1 to level 80 in 30 hours" guide, ArenaNet would be very tempted to remove that.
If they didn't run the same forums, I'd agree; but having an outside source not completely beholden to the company is important.

Wonder if guru will have a point really , to me depends on the official forums.
I always prefer the "main" forums to the fan ones , unless the "main" becomes horrible.

hard to use the information if it's outdated.. in gw1 same thing happened early on- a lot of the skill descriptions were outdated.. I used to use other sites but always posted on guru because of the trade section and community

However the total whine threads should stop now, and let's focus on what the game is, instead of what it isn't. Let's face it, GW2 is an awesome game, even with it's flaws and areas which need re-tuning/bugs etc. So let's push that positivity and help people to play and progress.
Question, feedback or issue? Pm me!
