Guild Wars 2 Status Report

The Guild Wars 2 Wiki has the latest status on ArenaNet's MMORPG sequel as they work to overcome launch issues. This includes details on tweaks to the game, dealing with capacity issues, and a few important warnings on how to ensure the security of your account. Here's word on plans to open the game's forums: "Our most important priority at the moment is to ensure that the game runs stably and flawlessly. So as to not create additional demand on our infrastructure and on our programming team, we made the decision not to open the forums until the initial mass influx of players has calmed down a bit."

This game has been blowing me away on a daily basis - for wanting more than a pure raiding grind, this is a fantastic game.

Having said that, I do see how people can be annoyed with the game, rather the state of the game. This game integrates real money into its economy, even if only partially, but the trading post (auction house) has yet to be fully functional.

I ran into an issue with the client crashing on a specific toon, completely stopping me from accessing my main character, and it took a full two days to even get an initial response from suppport. At the end of everything, something went wonky with my client (beta client patched to retail release) and I had to reinstall.

While I was researching the above item, I found numerous people that simply had no access to the game period. None at all. Or constant crashes after the first significant post-launch patch. I was fairly annoyed about my access issues, but I had all my other characters working and had played my main chracter for twenty-four levels. Had I lost all access or had never received access to my characters, I would definitely feel angry.

Meanwhile, where is the community for this game? As far as I can tell, the forums hae yet to be open. Want player input? To read a player FAQ? To promote your guild? To receive help? Share great experiences you've had playing this game? Well, don't do it over at GuildWars2.com.

Yesterday, we went to a launch event that ArenaNet ran for the game - we received a Guild Wars 2 shirt, a Guild Wars 2 poster signed by nine of the development staff, and a code for an in-game shirt identical to the one we received in person.

Well, at least that is what I believe the key on this card gives us - the site to redeem codes was taken down yesterday. It's not the end of the world, but speaks to that "other" side of the game some people are seeing. On one hand, we've played the game non-stop and I love world and design changes they have made, but they can't even get their launch day promotion right - it's one other small thing that is temporarily down while they deal with their launch success, run into bugs that were not found during the betas, try to resolve server issues, etc. But...it just seems like a few things have rough edges at the moment.
Logged into WoW today. Good for its age. But looking old and cheap.
Off to play this very moment,
Ray
