1. The community is still active? I will have newcomers like me to do dungeons with?
2. The company , are they getting new content oftenly?
3. What's your favourite race/class and which is the most populated server (EU)?
I couldnt post this on the main forum because i didnt yet buy the game (this summer, June maybe) so i hope i'm on the right forum now.
Well sadly I don’t think anyone can honestly and accurate answer your questions. There are some rather extreme opinions out there and most of them are based on speculation rather than the way things actually are. That said, some of these questions have been to a degree rendered moot. Either way if you do decide to join the community welcome, and I hope you have some fun here. Our community can be a bit….disgruntled, at times, but we’re ultimately good people. At least more helpful than in most of the games I’ve personally played.
1; I like to think the community is still active, I’ve certainly rarely had any trouble getting a group together. But some will say the game isn’t doing too well. Fact is nobody knows the actual numbers but Arena Net, and they’re not talking.
2; we’re actually just coming off the inaugural season of the so-called “living world.” At its height we were seeing new story content updates literally every two weeks. No MMO on the market can match it. That said most of that content was temporary, and if you missed it you couldn’t go back and replay it (something the developers said they wanted to correct with future updates). Likewise there are some strong opinions as to the quality and worth of that content. That said I like to think they were improving as the season headed to its close, and am hopeful about season two. As to when season two will start….nobody knows at this point. Arena Net seems to be taking a break to work on the core game right now.
3; I’ll just divide this up into two questions. I personally favor the ranger as my class of choice, and even though my main is a human, I just love the norn race. That said according to the last official numbers it seemed that warrior was the most popular class. Although that was long ago.
4; I can’t help you with the server issue. I like Tarnished Coast as it is the unofficial RP server, and I’ve heard good things about Blackgate. Either way Arena Net has just introduced a new “mega server” system that is intended to drastically shake things up and, if it works, will make the whole world feel populated regardless of the server you pick. A similar system was used in the original Guild Wars and it worked wonderfully, can’t say how the new system will stack up until it is fully rolled out a few updates from now. I suggest you revisit that question just before you decide to get the game in June, as any answer you get to it now will inevitably be vastly different by then.
