Guild Wars 2 rolls out brand-new forums, grants amnesty to past ne’er-do-wells

Guild Wars 2’s forums have just gotten a massive facelift with all the standard bits and bobs you’d want from a forum in 2017: avatars, mobile responsiveness, badges, ranks, bookmarks, private messages, searching, and up- and down-voting, so you too can brigade whatever ArenaNet says!

Anybody can log in with a game account, and since it’s free, that means everyone can read, but you’ll need to have bought into the game to actually post – even if you’ve been banned before. “The forums will be visible to everyone, members and visitors alike,” says the studio. “Everyone with a paid Guild Wars 2 account in good standing can participate on the new forums. A game account holder whose forum privileges were terminated on the old forums will be granted one-time amnesty in order to rejoin the forum community.” Maybe try not to screw it up this time?

The downside is the studio isn’t importing anything but a handful of its own threads, so if there’s anything you need from the old forums, like guides or RP stories, grab ’em soon — they’ll be archived until the end of October before (we’re assuming) being retired to eternal sleep with the likes of Rurik and Scarlet.

I wish they would include a GW1 sub forum into this.
