    1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

    2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

    3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

    25. for prep

    Either that or late June if NC runs out of patience. A mid summer release is very very unlikely and anything past sept while possible is already pushing it into the release flood which i think they want to avoid.

    Tha't my guess too!

    Ditto.  A month for balance and small fixes.  A beta two weeks from now for Asura/Sylvari and extra stress.  Then a marketing "Beta" roughly two-three weeks before heastart.


    Comes to end of June.

    May 29th release.


  • TerrorizorTerrorizor Red Beer, ABPosts: 326Member

    beta at end of May, then

    2 weeks later they'll start talking about Asura again, then

    2 more weeks until beta allowing Asura access, then

    1 week to summarize data recieved from beta, then

    release data of 1.5 months away announcement,  then

    2 weeks later they'll start going on about the Sylvari. Sylvari will not be playable until headstart.


    Aug 7 2012 is official release date

    Troller no trolling! (Sorry, I was subjected to Dora the Explorer earlier)

    2012, late July or early August (sorry, not keen on thinking of a hard date)

    Redcap, I know you said no weirdness in the posts, but I have to make a joke about quoting scripture at you. So there it is.

    Um.. sure fine, just not sure which bit is the scripture your quoting?


    Any of it. The mythology behind the evil goblin monster called Red Cap. You quote scripture from a holy book at him and he loses his power. I assumed that's where you got the game. If not, you should look into it; it's really interesting and weird, even for mythology.


    As for the game, the more I think about it, the more I think it is going to be a while longer, maybe mid-Autumn sometime. They might have a couple or three more open weekend events, and then there will be a quiet period, and then the game will release.

    "There are two great powers, and they've been fighting since time began. Every advance in human life, every scrap of knowledge and wisdom and decency we have has been torn by one side from the teeth of the other. Every little increase in human freedom has been fought over ferociously between those who want us to know more and be wiser and stronger, and those who want us to obey and be humble and submit."

    19 Nov. 2012. Good luck and no hitting below the belt.

    Previous Release Dates:


    Prophecies      Last Thursday of Month              April 28, 2005

    Factions           Last Friday of Month                   April 28, 2006

    Nightfall           Last Friday of Month                   October 27, 2006

    Eye ot North    Last Friday of Month                   August 31, 2007


    Emerging release pattern: Last Friday of the Month


    Since they already let you pre-purchase and claim it will be released in 2012, I would guess:


    Guild Wars 2      Last Friday of Month                August 31, 2012


    If the game was ready they would already have a release date set; releasing in August gives them 3-4 months to polish it up.  I am guessing they will mention the release date late May to early June.


    This also gives them 3-4 months for the first major patch to fix and add additional content for the Holiday Season.

    I'll say July 10th 2012, it would give them time to get in 2 more betas and put in the finishing touches.

    And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"
