    Stop being paranoid, Mif doesn't want to take over the world, he wants to rule it! Besides if he had to control your mind, that's way to much work being put into an inferior bookah.

    I mean.... what? I didn't give your plans away Mif!

    I've been waiting for Pandaren in WoW since forever too. Now I finally get to play them and people are raging about a made up humanoid race in a made up fantasy world.

    Each game is unique on its own, and I believe ArenaNet will deliver by the end of the year, just as Blizzard has.

    I've been hyped for this since 2007 when they announced they're working on it and no info was released.

    Eh once Beta rolls around and people realize that a cheaper MMO is better then their current one the hype will skyrocket. Right now the game has some pretty crazy hype and that's just from only having a few youtube videos to watch :P. Can't imagine how nuts it will be when people actually start to play it

    I never realized how much people loved the Mesmer. I wonder if it'd be the same if the Necromancer was last to be announced, and everyone was speculating that it was indeed the Necromancer...

    OT: I have a feeling the hype'll die down for me around winter time. Luckily, I'll have new games to play by then. I expect to have a huge, new wave of info by 2012.

    If anything, over time i'm more and more hyped. I've recently got to showing he game so far to friends and family, i've got a good 10 people down to buy the game on release. I know this has been said A LOT.. but seeing the changes in WoW's next expack makes the hype triple. I have nothing but patience for this game.
    And the talk about Add-ons, I don't see the need for any so far.

    And the physical integrity of those cookies better be chewy! Not soft, just chewy.

    hopefully most of them don't have a computer that can handle the massive jump in graphic quality.

    Which, unfortunately, won't be to much...

    What I feel is that when anyone finds out about GW2 for the first time, the game gets hyped up for them without any input from arena net. I remember watching vid after vid of anything and everything(official or not, mostly not), salivating on any morsel of information each time. To be honest, I don't even think arenanet has started to hype GW2 up yet!

    Once we even know about all the classes in the game, hopefully before beta is due to start, I think they will start putting a lot of effort into getting us into that mob frenzy.

    Here is to hoping that Anet knows what they are doing.

    And Mif's cookies sure are suspicious. If you include Jack Daniel's in the mix of those cookies, I might just submit.

    They definitely announced the game too early and way ahead of time.

    For a Single-Player game a reveal up to 12 months prior to release is about perfect. (BF 3 and MW 3 only had about 8 months)

    An MMO obviously needs a longer time to build-up a hype but anything beyond 2 years in advance is pretty bad imo. GW2 was announced.....what?....4 years ago?

    GW2's big first content reveal was Gamescon 2010, which was only 1 year ago.

    Being that ArenaNet at the time was a smaller company, they didn't have the resources to develop GW2 while maintaining their previous commitment to GW1 updates, so the only reason they announced GW2 back then was to be honest to their customers and explain what was happening.

    Well it was announced back in 2007 (source: http://www.guildwars.com/events/pres...2007-03-27.php )

    It wasn't until GC 2009 though that they showed footage for the first time (the Shatterer Event). From then onwards it's been a more or less constant stream of small updates.

    Nevermind what you define as the announcement-date however, it's definitely been too long of a wait.

    This is the calm before the storm, in less than 2 months open beta will be upon us and all the hype in the world is going to reign down on Gw2

    But the thread is meant to be about it being "hyped" for too long, so I'd hardly consider a press release that states nothing other than that they're making the game to be "hyping". You also have to remember that the game has been delayed by years, so that ruined any timeline they originally may of designed their marketing around.

    You're correct. I confused the first trailer with first playable.
    But once again I'd argue that it was more of a teaser than "hyping".
