Jeff Strain was the Lead Programmer and Team Lead in WOW before he left. He also created the entire WOW engine (based on his Warcraft 3 engine) and the entire network backend.

The graphics aren't great, and the way characters interact with the environment leaves much to be desired. But at the end of the day I can sign on, get some thinking man's combat (ie not counterstrike), and then go eat dinner. That's why I like the game, it's fun but it doesn't require me to sell my soul to "start to have fun".
Are you kidding? The graphics are awesome.

I just don't get how people can go on and on about how awesome WOW's graphics are, which look like a 3rd person Warcraft 3, and pan Guild Wars for having 'poor graphics' or something ridiculous like that.

Basically people who can't afford to pay the WOW sub. Oh sure, playing with school kids and junkies will be an absolute blast.

Oh and WOW is like the best game ever because you have to pay a subscription and only mature people have access to credit cards, right? What a pile of horse shit. One look at the WOW forums should dissuade anyone from thinking that WOW is filled with 'mature' gamers, as oppose to the 'school kids and junkies' who populate the Guild Wars servers. Why don't you kiss Blizzard's ass some more.

I sure as hell don't want to waste more time selecting the good skill combinaison (or lose competitive advantage) instead of playing the game.
It's a part of the game. Don't be such a damn schmuck. Have you ever heard someone who plays MTG complain about how he just wants to win all the time without having to come up with proper deck combinations? Well, I suppose I have heard that, and that's what you sound like. Deal with it.

Nothing in life is free, and this game won't be either. Right, no fixed monthly fees, but when it is all said and done it'll cost you ~$10 a month... if you want the new zones, equipment, spells, etc. And ArenaNet will make it such that you will buy the expansions every 3 months or so. They have a business plan, they want to make money, don't be so naive.
Save the lecture, dumbass.

ArenaNet has plans for an expansion every 5-8 months, not '3 months'. Where do you come up with this shit, honestly? You don't have to buy the expansions to remain competitive in the PvP mode but you'll probably buy them for the content anyhow, and they are priced in the same bracket as other expansion packs, so what's the problem? In most (I should say ALL) MMORPGs you have to pay 15 dollars a month on top of buying the expansions.

In short, you're an idiot.

They could have made a good game, but they didn't. Reminds me of Troika. No big loss.

The honor system is the best thing to ever happen to WoW. Bring on the PVP, Blizzard!

They had separate battle.net servers for asia, yet those freaks still ruined Diablo 2 by plaguing the American servers. Diablo 2 was instanced too, but there were plenty of ebay sales for that game. Anyway I was just pointing out what kind of company you are supporting by purchasing this game.
True, a lot of the Koreans ruined the Battle.net USWest/USEast experience, but that problem has been dealt with in Guild Wars. See, the American/Australian/Asian (Think Singapore)/European client is a different one than the one Koreans and specifically Koreans use. Basically, anyone with the former client can connect to either America or Europe if they want to, but anyone playing on the Korean client, which is the only version sold in Korea by NCSoft, can't connect to the American or European servers. They're not given a choice in the matter, so we won't have a problem with any influx of Koreans on the server. But if you have a friend in Korea who wants to play with you, you can join him on the International server. This is no big deal for Americans stationed in South Korea, though - they can just buy the American version from America or Europe and play it. It isn't based on IPs.

Don't get me wrong, I loathe NCSoft, particularly NCSoft Austin for their lackluster support of Lineage II, but ArenaNet uses its own support staff, so nobody has to deal with NCSoft.

I wouldn't call it an MMORPG either. I know that ArenaNet doesn't - they call it a CORPG (Cooperative online RPG). It's mainly the fault of magazines and the gaming press that refer to it as an MMORPG because they don't want to call it a 'hybrid' or something else.

q] ... consider reading this thread:
http://vnboards.ign.com/Lineage_2_General_Board/b22515/85307656/?4

Guild Wars is published by the same company, NCSoft. This game is going to be ruined by koreans.[q
It's published by the same company but Koreans and Europeans play on separate servers though they can play with Americans on the International district. English speaking Europeans should play on the American server, or they'll have to deal with the French %). Koreans use a different client from Americans and Europeans, so they can only play on the Korean server.

Besides, the game is completely instanced, so there will be no problems with botters or gold farmers. I don't see any problem with Koreans in GW.

I'd rather have 10 hours of real life time than any amount of time spent in WOW.
