New Characters don't get their name on the notice board?? Do they? I think this is an account bound thing. maybe should make it character base.

My secondary account don't have it because that account isn't active, and have not been following the scarlet story,  when i go to Lion's Arch to check the notice board, this account's name isn't mention . just says some heros bla bla bla.

I made a new character and yes.  It is account bound.

And as I finish reading your post I look over and see: "A new build will be available in 10 minutes."

Well good!  Now let's count the bugs. :)

Blizzard used to shut down WoW for entire afternoons to handle patches of this magnitude.

ArenaNet lets players stay logged in and play without incident up until when the patch hits and they're in your mind deservedly chewed out for taking a couple extra hours.


Ummm....  two different points.

One was that WoW did not set the standard for Hype.  It certainly did.

The second point was that GW1 did not succumb to that, and would do cool updates in GW1 with little or no warning, ironically giving more of a living world feel then GW2.  Remember when icy fire swords first dropped?

GW2 historically has overhyped and underperformed.  While I agree it's too early to say this patch will be delayed, I'm not exactly optimistic.

I love how people lie to themselves, such as claiming GW1 updates didn't have bugs, or that WoW set standards.

Don't even go there.  GW1 was more stable and had less bugs than GW2.  That is a fact.

And, yes, Blizzard and WoW set the standard for MMOs (not that I like it, but it's what you either deliberately copy or move away from in modern MMOs.   Hell, ArenaNet was founded by ex-Blizzard people, so it certainly influenced them!)

I would love for you to link us the official comment in which they stated a certain time? Because that coment alone is unintelligently mis informed.

Because you are certainly implying they stated a time, when they did not do so. So far it is still that date, so I do not see what the problem is.

True, it is only 2:00 pm Seattle time.   I'm just concerned there is "last minute" polish.

Maybe this should have been rolled out over the 3 week period, rather than all at once.
