    Anyway, ArenaNet/NCsoft has already said they want a release this year.

    If you can somehow prove that your uncle works at Anet, then we would all be inclined to believe you. Until then, people will most likely just make fun of you (rightly so if you claim things without bakcing them up).

    Having said that, if it's true that your uncle works at Anet, and he told you by phone that they're aming for August or December, then please tell your uncle that he should keep his mouth shut if he wants to keep his job. I'm sure Anet would not appreciate one of their devs leaking info they're not supposed to.

    Of course, if its true in the first place that your supposed uncle works at Anet. We'll all be waiting for the proof :-)

     You're 21...

    i have nephews 15 years older than me.  age is not a factor when it comes to being an uncle.

     So you're telling me that...

    AcidDK, a 21 year old, is the uncle of Isais who is 23. 

    AND AcidDK lives in Denmark, while Isais lives in San Diego.

    AND the only proof we have that he is anyone's uncle is that he said so on an internet forum.

    Personally, I'm going with skepticism on this one :).

    Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

    Wait, is this thread about a gw2 release date or the importance of relatives?

    i'm the janitor at Funcom and i know the developers there have a picture of Anet HQ on the wall they throw darts at

  • ChillwolfChillwolf West End, NCPosts: 33Member

    I read my coffee grounds this morning they also confirmed an Arena Net internal push for release in Aug..... or Dec.   Or sometime between those months.

    Funny thing is that you made an inane post with absolutely no proof about an ongoing conspiracy thread and wonder why folks think you are just troll.......

    There are times when one must ask themselves is it my passion that truly frightens you? Or your own?

    Relax folks. My uncle, who is magneto, has gone to have a chat with arenanet to greet the OP's uncle so he can thank the "uncle"  for giving us this accurate and confirmed information about the release date. 

    p.s- he might still an alienware from one of their employees lol, they all have one :(

  • XthosXthos Columbus, OHPosts: 2,628Member

    True or not, 90% of the time, when someone does this, they are full of it....You picked 2 months or were told 2 months, so you probably got like a 40% chance of being right, either way....I am not saying you are a liar, just that usually it is bs, and people are use to it being that...

     

    This is the internet, people can say anything, I know people that lie over stupid things that don't matter in real life...

    Not confirmed, and it may change. But ArenaNet is aiming an August release, if all goes well. My Uncle works over at Arenanet and told me by phone. But he is just a developer. Not in any high position or anything, but that is the talk around the office. If they miss August, it will most likely be a December release.

    Partly the release is because NCsoft is pushing them a lot faster to get the game out there, since the latest MMOs they've had haven't worked that well, over in the Western world. They really need Guild Wars 2 to do good, or they may close up shop or greatly decrease their influence over here. And GW2 has been in development a while, and they don't want to wait past this year.

    You do realise that your uncle might lose his job because of you (if it is true what you are saying)? How hard do you think it is to locate an employee that is 21 yo, works for 4 months and is leaking internal information ?

    I know this guy who has a cousin that works in domino's and he supposedly delivered pizza to the arenanet office.  He said they seem to be stress eating about some highly probable delay.

    ah is that so? I know NCsoft is trying real hard to get ArenaNet to release this year (according to my family member), but maybe ArenaNet will delay anyway (if they can).

    MMORPG.com is like 4chan, but for gamers.

    WoW already does WoW good.

    PvPers that gank newbies, are carebears. They don't want a challenge (like a carebear), they just want easy mode (like a carebear) and a no challenge combat (like a carebear).

    If they're not going to release in the summer (the smart thing to do if the game was ready), they should wait until the Holiday Season.

     

    I would be shocked if GW2 releases in August.  I can't imagine Anet not coming out with a release date until a month before release, and from what I've played, GW2 still needs about 4-6 months in the oven.

    Word is they plan on releasing a new photo with a possible date when they will make an announcement formed out of the pepperonis on the pizzas. Although there apparently is some contractual disagreement between them and Dominos. Which if it continues means they may go with Papajohn's instead.

    Say tuned...

    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.

    I, too, have an inside source and I can without a doubt promise that the game will release sometime after today but no earlier.
