The Daily Grind: So are you preordering Guild Wars 2 End of Dragons?

I don’t know about you folks, but the past week has been rough, and I needed something happy to take my mind off the stress. Guild Wars 2 End of Dragons’ big reveal stream yesterday was a big ol’ boost of serotonin. New landmass! Turtles! Boats! Fishing! New specs! Just drown me in petrified trees and stained-glass windows and take my money.

I’ve wanted a return to Cantha since before Guild Wars 2 even existed, and I haven’t been shy about saying it, so of course I’m thrilled we’re getting closer to the day and that it looks just as stunning as I hoped back when it was first announced. Even though I know it won’t fix the game’s meta, add proper housing, or address most of the things I find annoying about the game, it’s enough for me to play and enjoy it, at least for a while.

How about you? Did you like what you saw – are you preordering End of Dragons, or at least planning to play at launch?

Nope. I got tired of their game mechanics a while ago. Found a new home in Swords of Legends recently. It’s nice to be back in a tab-target, holy trinity MMO once again. Oh and it’s very pretty !

No, because Guild Wars 2 blew their chance at getting me back with their slow customer service. I downloaded the game to see if I could get back into it after being away for years. I had to recover my password. Then after wasting my time downloading the game, they locked my account when I logged into the game itself. In Star Wars The Old Republic when my account was locked on my return after years, I was playing an hour late. I still have not heard word one from Guild Wars 2 customer service. They want our money for a product that isn’t out when they can’t even provide basic customer service. Big old NOPE!

Nope. I can’t get into this game.

I’m a newer player but preordered mainly for the boost, extra character slot and storage space.

Good point, there are immediately useful benefits, not just cosmetics.

No way I would pre-order anything GW2. Still gun shy over HOT and POF.

For some reason reading this immediately made me hear the H.R. Pufnstuf theme song in my head…

I’ve been hoping for Cantha for a long time as well. Definitely preordered!

Yes I’m going to preorder a digital download in case they run out of boxes at the store. What is wrong with you people? These game companies have you paying for games before there’s any reviews or anything, basically telling them, “make whatever crap game you want, you already have my money. Thanks for the free pixel exclusive.” How about they give out exclusive prizes to people who wait a year? That would actually be more practical, imo.

Indeed. This is why we get so many bad releases now. It doesn’t even matter what they ship because they’ve already made their money.

If they love the game and know they’ll purchase regardless, they might as well get the goodies now. If a game is one of your mainstays then a new expansion is cause for excitement, I’m not going to judge them for it.

No. Word in the street is that they will still sell it at (and maybe even after?) launch.

Um. Of course. Like, at 11:23am…

I need to see what the beta is like. I think I said it in an earlier post but I am really curious what their hook will be. HoT had verticality and gliders and masteries. PoF had mounts. Nightfall had heroes.

They always have some new shiny thing. Skiffs and fishing is cool, but those are side activities. This game seems like it may not have that new thing, but just an amalgamation of old stuff. That’s fine, but I’ve done that. I think playing in beta will give me a great idea of if I want to go back.
