    That's the kicker, I'm not. I may play GW2 sooner or later but I'm not really a full-on fan. I'm more of a burnt-out MMO goer that's just spending time waiting for something different and poking fun at particular groups of people and the devs they follow. Mostly due to bad experiences, and if GW2 get's that way too for me, they'll be on the list.

    In truth though, I am very much tired of WoW. Not going to lie, some aspects of it I DO like (miss holiday events) but I'm just tired of the game and some of the blizzlings that are in it.

    You know what's fun about chaos? I do, but I won't tell.

    Its amazing that someone caught this in the first place.  Its pretty funny if you ask me.

    Or ArenaNet releasing the pic themselves as a player. Yes, I think that's the one.

    These symbols come from the New Krytan alphabet and when translated you get:

     

    "I played WoW and look at me now,
    if only I had been like you and stuck to playing Guild Wars 2."

     


    Credits go to Jalinar for translating.
    Credits go to ANet for making this happen.
    Credits go to Alot for creating such a sensationalist thread.
    Credits go to littleXuro for ninja'ing me by 14 minutes.
    Credits go to (input name of easily enraged GW2 hater) for making this thread live (and die).

    It's funny on one level, and very insensitive on another level.

     

    You have to remember people HAVE actually died playing WoW, including children and babies, so making jokes about it doesn't really appeal to me. 

     

    Death's due to MMO addiction (Most are due to WoW.) http://www.rpgownage.com/2011/03/697/

     

    But end of the day, marketing is usually very insensitive and brutal. I seriously hope this has been photoshopped.

     

    Also this isn't very original, it's been done before -

    "You're not in Azeroth anymore!" Rift.

    "Global Agenda: No Elves." Global Agenda.

     

    Marketing like this only deters people who play and like WoW from playing the game. Which is a big mistake, with WoW making up nearly half of the western MMO playerbase.

     

    I'll still get Guild Wars 2, but the above is just my opinion.

     

    They aren't marketing it at all though. They put it on a tomb stone in gibberish, and someone with too much time on their hands found it . This isn't meant to be taken seriously. It's meant to be one of those "a-ha" moments, and then you move on with your life.

    I don't know. I've seen some of the comments, and I'd say ArenaNet is the ultimate troll now.

    Yes. I'm sure that ArenaNet is so lacking in marketing funds that they need to resort of releasing a pic on some obsucre message board in the hopes that it will take the net by storm.

    Get real. LMAO!

    Well, to learn that only the dead play WOW is a great relief to me. First trade chat, barrens chat, and that cyber bar on Moonguard all make sense now. Second, it looks like only about 10 million people went to hell and they are mostly Asian so my chances of landing in a good spot after the coffin are actually pretty good now.

    Yes. I loved that show but for some reason it anoyed the crap out of me every time they used "frack."

    I'm pretty sure the dead don't have a sense of humor, nor, apparently, do a lot of WoW fans posting in this thread. Hmmm...the threat subject title might be on to something...

    Do you think that you're not allowed to say... anything about your competitors?

     

    Unless you're lying you can say anything you want, and this clearly doesn't fall in the category of lying.

    I mentioned this in a similar thread on guru. The joke is not saying that only the Dead play WOW.

    It's a refrence to WoW's death penalty and a contrast to GW2's lack of one. If you'd play WoW and die you are stuck as a ghost wandering around until you find your TOMBSTONE. If you play GW2 and die you can port back to waypoint and you don't have to go find your tombstone. That's the joke. It's a jab at the WoW's death penalty and saying that it is inferior to GW2's in terms of actually playing the fun parts of the game.

     ...

    Holy Crap. This is just a simply light hearted jab at the WoW In-GAME death penalty. Where you wander around looking for your tombstone when you die. It was absolutly not a refrence to real-life deaths from video game addiction. 

    Let me break down:

    "I played WoW and look at me now" - he's now a ghost wandering around looking for the tombstone your reading

    "if only I had been like you and stuck to playing Guild Wars 2." - if he was playing GW2 he wouldn't be a ghost wandering around looking for his tombstone. He'd/She'd be playing the game.

    It most certianly isn't a cold hearted refrence to real deaths....

    You're quite heartless and stick to still find this funny after the actual death's relating to WoW.

    I'm seriously hoping it's photoshopped, otherwise this is very poor taste in humour from ArenaNet.

    Get real. I mean seriously. People died from many activities, from food to sports to wars to playing videos and watching TV. Should we just stop joking about everything?

    You know what the problem with this world is? Overly sensitive people.

    And yes, I am quite heartless, thank you for noticing.
