SBFordSBFord Associate Editor - News ManagerThe Land of AZPosts: 16,614MMORPG.COM Staff Uncommon

ArenaNet has announced that the Refer-A-Friend promotion will be active beginning November 12th and Guild Wars 2 players will be able to invite up to three friends to participate in the game from November 15-18th.


To do so, you need a Guild Wars 2 account in good standing that was created before 23:59 PST (7:59 GMT) on November 6.

We will give you more details once the program goes live, but start thinking about who you want to invite!

Read the rest of the announcement on the Guild Wars 2 site.

In other news, the Guild Wars 2 team has announced the winners of the recent Halloween diorama contest.

    This is good news because I have a couple family members that really want to try it.

    This makes me feel that new Island won't be a normal pve area. instead I believe it will be a content targeted at people who want to spend some time with friends from lvl 1 doing minig games/whatever.

    waaaait a minute.

     

    how do they time-limit access to a P2P MMO with no subscription?

     

    If someone refers me and I get the client, I already have it, what else am I paying for? My client will be ready to go.

     

    we need to pay for what we already have now?

    When you buy the game you get a license.  When you play a trial you get a trial license.

    send me a pm if anyone wants in for the trial.

    I think I do. They were offering 1 day trials or something and that was fucking terrible?

    Wow, going to free buddy trials so quickly.  A sure sign of a bad, failed game.

    The same rationale has been used to bash every game that's had to resort to free buddy trials so quickly.  GW2 should be no different.  It has horrible longevity due to bad overall game design, and it's starting to show.

    Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.

    You could have made me feel good and put it in it's own thread...then id be right for once!

    Holy crap.... free trials this soon? I'm shocked.

    Awesome! This will be a great way to get new people to play this already extremely successful and immensely popular game. I can't wait to get some friends in who have been on the fence!
  • grimalgrimal Stamford, CTPosts: 2,873Member Uncommon
    Weren't there a few people saying you'd have to wait a "long time" before a free trial was offered?

    There is always someone saying something.

    I think It's a smart move. Even though GW2 is doing just fine, more new potential players is always good. They would do this sooner but they had to stabilize servers first and let the launch wave pass.
