    There were global chanles at one time, particularly LFG was joinable anywhere anytime and it was prety bad. Imagine trade chat during one of the infantile "Anal [Link]" contests and take it an order of magnitude further and you've got a good idea of what went on. you were lucky if 1 post in 20 had anything to do with LFG. The more global and free to join the chanle is the more retards join in and start makeing a mess of the place. Short of parking a GM on every server to moniter the mess it was nearly impossible to police.

    There's lots of big budget games coming out at the minute. It'd be pointless trying to compete with them so I guess we'll see some information late November, early December but only snippets. They'll hold off while the SWTOR hype machine gets plastered everywhere then after it's launch I think they'll gradually crank it up. When the exact release would be I don't think anyone knows but I'd go Feb/March because that's where the gap will be in terms of players getting through SWTOR content and before MoP.

    I kinda agree with the OP, most the information out there is gathered from demo videos.

    April release has been thrown around a lot.

    Most of the MMO community is the WoW community. I'd at least say its safe to assume half of the MMO community plays WoW, or has played it at some point for an extended period of time (3-6 months or more).

    I remember playing Age of Conan and global chat would be filled with WoW trolls and naysayers. Personally, I loved the game. In the case of Guild Wars 2, you can expect something like this "Let's try and find the flaws in this WoW clone! hee hee hee, ha ha ha!"...1 hour of gameplay passes..."HOLY SHIT! THIS GAME IS AWESOME!"

    Guild Wars 2 is going to be awesome, and I honestly believe that the WoW community will adjust to it very snugly.

    Q2 2012 just before summer. There hasn't been a wow expansion yet that has been released before 15 months of announcement, so even if you would make it 14 months wich would make MoP to come out during xmas next year, MoP is still going to be late.

    Actually, the bigger part of the MMO-community consists of WoW-players..I'm pretty sure most of the lovely people posting in this forum, have played/still play WOW. I know I do, and I always will. It's good to not be narrowminded when it comes to music, movies, people and MMOS...*I r deep*

    That feeling when there's a new expansion out and you sit in a Garrison wondering what the hell to do because you are stuck on an entire continent like Timeless Isle, only with flightpaths to encourage afk travel coz "immersion".

    This is all you need really. You'll be spending most of your time socializing with your guild members and when you do need outside help people are there for you. Other rotten-minded people that come in your face annoying you can simply be ignored.
