Guild Wars 2 Guild organization thread.

Hi guys. New to posting on the forums. My experience with GWJ is mostly from the podcast and the occasional session of Battlefield 3 on the GWJ server. I hadn't been paying attention to this game very much so it kind of snuck up on me last week when I heard it was coming out this month. Did some reading about it and quickly found myself pre-ordering. You guys mind if I join you?

Welcome! I'm just excited to get into an MMO where I'll have a bunch of people on voice chat with whom to run! I've been playing Tera and NOBODY else that I know, save one other GWJer plays it.

I'm not sure everyone signed up for the username.character code survey. I think it would be wise to join on the GWJ Vent on launch and use it to coordinate invites and meeting up, unless there's some alternative chat channel I don't know about.

Hi. My name is Toanstation, and I'm addicted to playing games with other GWJers.

Long story, short, I've been looking for another social game to play (I'm in the Tuesday/Thursday DDO group) that's looks like something I want to play, and listening to all of the coverage of GW2, it sounds like they're getting it right. So, I treated myself to a birthday present and pre-purchased the deluxe edition.

No clue what I'm going to play, yet.

May I suggest reading: http://www.guildwarsinsider.com/guil...
Good overall descriptions of the different professions and everything else

I should be on sometime sat morning around 7am or so. I will be on vent so I can help with the guild stuff if necessary.

I'll be in vent right around midnight and keeping my eyes on the servers. I'll post then they go live.

I'm thinking an Asura Thief but I have a tendency to completely change my mind when I get to the character creation screen. I'm pretty sure that's what I'm going with though.

I too hope to be online around midnight. Only for an hour or so as I have an early morning. Need to claim my names!

I have a tennis tournament this weekend, so I doubt I'll be on much until Sunday afternoon, but I'm going to try to get on tonight so I can at least get on the right server and maybe claim a few names.

I heard a rumor that the servers might be up as early as 12AM Eastern if they are, I will probably hop on right away and claim some names and a spot on the server.... btw, what server did you all decide on? A buddy of mine is getting married tomorrow so that is probably all I will play until sometime Sunday. Has there been any official word as to when they will nix the free server swaps and enable the guesting?

Have fun tonight, don't forget to eat/sleep a little this weekend

Well, I'm going to get in on this, most likely through the GWJ guild. Remembering there was no subscription is what tipped it over for me.

I'll probably hop on vent around midnight eastern and join the launch waiting room party hehe.

It's gonna be pretty odd hearing everyone getting more and more excited until the dam breaks and everyone loses their sh*t... and then silence as everyone is neck deep in sliders and colour pickers =)

Not a rumor, Anet has stated that the severs might go live up to three hours early. Or the might not.

And we are rolling on the Northern Shiverpeaks server.

Thanks for the information, I appreciate it!

I'll be hanging out on vent per-launch as well.

*Stupid phone, fixed typos.

I'll see how late I can stay up to see if it launches early. Otherwise I will be online early..before the baby wakes

GWJ Ventrillo server

See you all tonight in game! I'll probably roll a thief although engineer is a strong possibility too. Plan to be a crafter doing leatherwork and weaponsmith.

Emblem vote is over, Octo Gear was the winner

Here are the results: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...

Lets see what it looks like in game as is and if the white stands out too much then we can discuss adjusting the colors.

So, how many of you use the Ventrilo Software? I've never even heard of it.

Pretty much every MMO player uses Ventrilo, TeamSpeak, or Mumble. Do you need help with setup?

Steam's built in voice chat will also work.

Leaving work now. I'll check in again in about 2 hours then I will be sleeping until 11pm EST

If there is anything you need me to do before hand let me know and I will take care of it when I get home from work.
