#2108560 So how long before DE's & Champs are removed ?

Posted TGIFrisbie on 05 December 2012 - 07:08 PM

I continue to make, what I consider obviously, a much better solution.

Pre 80 maps should be SHARED between 3-5 servers.  This should shore up population issues on the early maps.

Whatever they add - be sure people will come to Guru to moan about it. Heck, I could probably give you names of the top posters complaining about the content ;)

I'm looking forward to new, exciting and creative ways for people to complain and/or exclaim their bitter disliking toward.

Just give us a 30 boss gauntlet dungeon that gives 2 Anything Tokens per boss slain and call it a day.

#1983522 Things you miss about Guild Wars...

Posted Robsy128 on 01 October 2012 - 01:26 PM

Completing the story and getting an awesome weapon for all of your efforts.

Syncing dance moves with other characters and having massive dance parties with 30+ people.

Farming. Just seeing those number fly over the screen and knowing that you can't be hurt was awesome. I felt powerful.

Speed running through areas (i.e. from Ascalon City to Lion's Arch, and from Ascalon City to Droknar's Forge, etc.)

The crazy and fun animations (i.e. /drums, /violin, /dance *, /surprised).

The armours, knowing that they only cost platinum. I could easily look them up on the wiki and know what armour set someone was wearing. Now? I have no clue what any of the armour sets are. The only ones that really stand out are the dungeon armours.


#1917124 The killing of Zhaitan..

Posted Puddin Cheeks on 11 September 2012 - 01:50 PM

I would have enjoyed it alot more if 4 of our party members me included, would have got to watch the cutscenes and get credit for finishing the storyline.  Only 1 member got credit and I was highly pissed about that.  I got a whopping 26 silver and a yellow hood that was useless.  Now when i go to dungeon it says "Replay Story Mode".  But my quest chain never finished.

Note to anyone doing this.  If you start and only 1 player is watching first cut scene, turn around and leave the dungeon.

#1452178 Speculative Release Date Thread: The Ninth Part

Posted Dream Catcher on 17 May 2012 - 11:18 AM

Good afternoon/evening/morning my fellow speculators, I hope to deliver to you all something extremely useful in this post, please take the time to read it in it's entirety, feel free to help me fill in the blanks or correct any possible errors I may have made.

I decided to spend a little of my time going over NCSofts published/in development games, focusing on when they either entered Open Beta or dropped their NDA and when they released, you can see where I am going with this, I was looking for patterns in the amount of time between no NDA and the games release dates. Below is what I have been able to find so far.
  • Aion: 16th June 2009 NDA dropped, released 22nd September 2009 in America, released 25th September Europe.
  • Auto Assault: 10th January 2006 NDA dropped, released 11th April 2006.
  • Blade & Soul: ??, ??.
  • City of Heroes: ??, released 27th April 2004 America, released 4th February 2005 Europe.
  • Exarch Online: ??, ??.
  • Exteel: Open Beta 15th November 2007, released 5th December 2007.
  • Guild Wars: First official Public Beta Test 5th November 2004 (source official Guild Wars website), released 28th April 2005.
  • Lineage: ??, released 4th September 1998.
  • Lineage II: Open Beta 28th March 2004, released 27th April 2004.
  • Metal Black Alternative: ??, ??.
  • Soccer Fury: ??, ??.
  • Tabula Rasa: Open Beta 9th August 2007, Released 7th November 2007.
  • Wild Star: ??, ??.
All games, average amount of time between the removal of the NDA and release = 2.77 months
(obviously this is not the complete equation, due to missing information)

MMO/CORPG only, average amount of time between the removal of the NDA and release = 3.2 months
(obviously this is not the complete equation, due to missing information)

So judging by NCsofts history as a publisher and the timescales they prefer between the removal of the NDA and the games release date, we get a rough estimate of 3 months, or for the pessimists 3.2 months. This means the latest we should expect GW2 is between July 10th - August 4th (unless NCSoft decide to iterate their historical behavioral pattern).
(this calculation will become more accurate, as I receive more information, from my ever helpful fellow Guru members).

Hopefully this post can serve as a piece of factual evidence, for posters discussing this topic.

I purposely took only the first game in each series, with the exception of Lineage II, because I couldn't find the details I required for the first game in the series (if I recieve the information here I will remove Lineage II and just keep Lineage 1).

I personally think the games release will happen something like this:
May 25th - 28th BWE 2
June 15th - 18th BWE 3
June 29th - 2nd July (last BWE, Arenanet give out thousand if not hundreds of thousands of Beta Keys to gaming sites magazines, via Facebook and Twitter).
3 day head start 10th July (pre-purchases)
1 day head start 12th July (pre-orders)
Lanuch day 13th July.

Take from this post what you will, but this is the most solid evidence we have which enables us to speculate a release date with increased accuracy, compared to sometime in 2012.

Agreed, it was suspiciously smooth. I smell a marketing ploy.
