At the end of this week’s podcast, Justin and I were chatting about Guild Wars 2’s big announcement that’s coming up later today, and since we’d spent so much of the episode talking about WoW Classic up until then, naturally we had to crack a joke about Guild Wars 2 Classic, which is not to our knowledge a thing or ever gonna be a thing or even remotely something that’s on the table.
But you know… both of us said we’d play it. And that was no joke.
For my part, I loved the way the early game felt, before much powercreep had seeped into the game and the expansions had taken it off in wildly different directions and storytelling tones. I don’t dislike the modern game; I just miss what it was when it launched. I don’t actually think ArenaNet has the desire or resources to do it, of course, but it’s fun to contemplate.
Would you play Guild Wars 2 Classic, if that were a thing?
