ArenaNet has revivified classic Guild Wars’ support website, vows support for ‘years to come’

So here’s an interesting tidbit we missed in the hubbub of last week: ArenaNet has resurrected its support site for classic Guild Wars.

“In an effort to better support our community and their adventures through Tyria, I’m excited to announce the launch of a new support site dedicated entirely to the original Guild Wars experience,” ArenaNet writes. “This knowledge base serves as the ArenaNet Support Team’s central repository of articles and solutions to common issues that can arise while playing Guild Wars […]. We’re looking forward to supporting Guild Wars for years to come, and will continue to expand the Guild Wars Support site as we do just that.”

Does it mean anything beyond what’s being said? We don’t know, but we sure do love the sound of “years to come.” As MMO players already know, there’s been a flurry of ArenaNet activity around the game in the last year, starting with a graphics update and most recently a big quality-of-life update and Complete Collection edition.

Guild Wars 1, the content is still rich, the horizontal progression still provides stiff challenge, its pretty much got features ither games are still building on, everything is doable with the heroes, and its a classic.

Dang. Think I just convinced mywelf to play some of it!

Oh, and if youre inclined, you can actually make characters you create into the AI heroes that accompany you on your journies.

Its literally my perfect game, to me it was the FF7 of MMOs lol

I have and love Project Gorgon for what it is and what it is trying to be, but not knowing you, I would recommend GW1.

Respect to Anet on this. They complete dump upon GW2 but it’s prequel is topnotch.

Given the trend for classic games too, it wouldnt hurt them to take more care of their old “diamond”

It only makes sense as they have always continued to maintain the GW1 store, and with the QoL storage update, it means more space to spend money on. If you are selling the game and services, the right thing to do is to have some modicum if support for it.

In terms of additional content updates, I would have to take a pass on that, no matter how much I would like to see the Beyond storyline that was originally planned for Nightfall. The only way I would want the current iteration of Anet touching content for GW1 is if they bring in a team of people that know the game, and understand what makes it miles better than GW2.

They actually had to do some kind of repair on the GW1 store last year. Around the time they did the graphics/QoL update I found they had some bad links which I reported and they fixed… ugh sorry I can’t remember what the problem was but the point was they fixed the store ASAP because they need to keep the payments for any services coming in.

I would love to see Utopia in Gw1… That expansion we never got. Loved that game and I would go back to it if they launched it.

I would *love* to see a real update/expansion for GW1. (Yeah, I know. Dream on.)

I still hold out hope that this game’s essential structure/design will be emulated and updated by someone, somewhere.

GW1 remains, hands down, the most enjoyable online multiplayer game I’ve ever played.

On a scale of “no” to “hell no”, I’d say about a 7.
