The Guild Wars 2 RELEASE date pool

redcap036redcap036 AdelaidePosts: 1,221Member Uncommon
Hi all, I've been lurking around the forums and I’ve noticed that were all speculating when Guild Wars 2 will be released and I thought what if we had a bit of fun with this and made a pool to see who can guess the release date or gets closest to it.
 
THE RULES;
 
  1. Each poster may only post the year, month, day and time of when they think the game will release, (the release date for all players, not just the head start players)
  • Please post your guess first in your thread.
  • Each poster may only enter once with only one guess.
  • you may post why you think it will be released then, but keep it short and sweet please and no walls of text.
 
2) NO TROLLING OR FLAMEBAITING comments, you will be reported for being off topic as well as the rule break.
 
3) NO PERSONAL COMMENTS ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK OF THE GAME, you will be reported for being off topic.
 
THE WINNER/s will be determined by who was the most accurate to the year, month, day, time
 
THE PRIZE, winner/s wins the respect and admiration of their fellow mmorpg's.com posters for being a really really good guesser, (for however long they can keep it) and the knowledge that they were right.
 
SO LET THE GUESSING POOL BEGIN!
 
NOTE: Please put in full dates and times. eg; day / month / year and what time of day or night
 
 
 
Congratulations to Sabbicat for guessing the closest to the date and time, you here by are bestowed all bragging rights over your fellow mmorpg.com members and win the respect and admiration of their fellow mmorpg's.com posters for being a really really good guesser, (for however long ever you can keep it) and the knowledge that you and only you were right.

Congratulations!

Sabbicat

    Why not ask a few of the Anet staff members that lurk over this forum? Few members here work for Anet. They know who they are. Many of them stop posting here after the Prepurchase I noticed...

    Tha't my guess too!

  • EzhaeEzhae LondonPosts: 722Member Uncommon

    17th of August 2012.

    Why 17th? - Because it's first friday after 15, and games like to be released either near 15 or near end of a month, I'm being optimistic with it.  I could be wrong and they could of course pick tuesday of course, which is common release day in US. 

    Why August? - Because the game still needs work. A lot of work. Some of the system need major imprvements, the beta didn't show any of Sylvari or Asura content and no content for 25+ chaarcters except Ascalon Catacombs dungeon and Lion's Arch hub. August seems reasonable month for everything to be polished up and prepped with enough time for BWEs to gather required feedback if they keep at 1 BWE/month. 

    Why 2012? - Because it will be released this year.

    My guess: 2012, August 15th.
    Because it's my birthday and GW2 would be the most epic b-day gift. xD I can dream, right?

  • Half_Man_Half_ToonHalf_Man_Half_Toon NO, CAPosts: 156Member

    they said they will be release on 2012 onlest something goes terrible wrong   so  here are my dates based on facts of my gaming knowledge

     

    next beta will be on   2012 May 26

    Official Release Date of Guild Wars 2 will be on 2012 December 26 Christmas Day 1:00 am pacific time

    2012 December 23 will be the 3 day headstart 1:00 pm pacific time

     

    bases on facts Last beta was on 2012 Abril so they will have 8 months to release and polish the game real good if they work hard enough and do some more betas for testing, Remember Guild Wars 2 is a company that has workers and they want to get pay so it will be ideal for them to get the must Doller Bang On 2012 December 26 Christmas Day and is already hype up and from my knowledge over the years of me playing games for over 25 years I know this will happen, I will also will say we will see 1 or 2 more betas becouse the first one was bad and allot of people where complaining on computer performance and thats a big issue.

    00:00 GMT, August 31st, 2012.

     

    Last friday of August and seems to be a reasonable amount of time for bug fix's and tweaking from BWE's. Also it gives them sometime to have it polished as much as possible before the xmas holidays.

    That's a great start guys thanks, but don't forget to put the time of day down as well, it could be a photo finish so to speak.

  • fiontarfiontar Dana, MAPosts: 3,680Member Uncommon

    Launch: Tuesday, June 26, 2012 Midnight US Pacific Time.

    Not part of the pool, but Headstart:

    Friday, June 22nd, Noon US Pacific Time.

    With brief downtime before launch, the headstart may be slightly longer than 3 days and will cover the full weekend before release.

    Saturday, June 30th at midnight (PST) for now, with the headstart being Wednesday/Tuesday/Friday.

    _______________________

    What's a release date pool? Something with water in it? Or a billard game? Or did you mean a poll?

    Not a flame, but you may want to correct this ;-)

    I'd say June 30th for the release date if I based it on the amazon.de leak, but ANet already said they will release "when ready" based on the beta week end feedback, so it could be later like August or even September.

    So I vote Saturday, June 30th at midnight for now, with the headstart being Wednesday/Tuesday/Friday.

    All times PST of course.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    22-11-12 Midnight US Pacific Time just because big game releases tend to fall in November. No specific reason for double two...just looks cool with double ones following as month....while also looking good with the year (the combination of both?)...lolz..

    Looking forward to EQL and EQN.

  • AnthurAnthur StolbergPosts: 728Member Uncommon

    Am I the only one who read "release date poo!" at first ?

    Anyway, my guess:

    12th of July 2012 noon pdt (release, not head start)

    Hi Korrigan, it's more of a lottery type pool.

  • viddsterviddster DerbyshirePosts: 216Member Uncommon

    If you have played the beta you can see it is not going to be ready until Q4 this year at least. With that in mind I would guess the date to be 20th November in the US and 23rd in the EU.

    July 20th, 12Noon PST.

    They wont release this month and TSW opens in June.

    They won't do Friday the 13th and will want to get  more than a week before August (27th would be too late for a full week).

    Good one, but it's too long of a wait, why not on MY birthday, July 27th. Seems like a perfectly good time to release it.
