    i don`t want to research the game too much. i want it to be a surprise, and hopefully a pleasant one.

    I will follow your advice with the launcher and see where that goes, thank you.

    thank you.
    Right now we've had all 3 BWE's, and 3 stress tests. We are 100% sure that the BWE3 was the final one. We had a stress test after that. Head start begins in 19 days (I love how that sounds after waiting since 2007 ) so it's possible that there will be another stress test before launch.

    However...

    I would advise against playing in the stress test if you haven't been ingame yet. Keep the game fresh for release so you can enjoy it to the fullest.

    Yeah.. if you have managed to go this long without playing, you don't want to play during a 4hour stress test filled with zones not loading and character's not able to log in.

    I found your introductory topic for GW2 very helpful. I wanted to ask your permission if I could use it as a turtorial topic on my guilds website? With link and credits leading back you, or any additional GW2 website you're part of and want to be credited.
    Thank you for your time.

    Regards,

    I'd actually says it's possible.

    In the days leading up to the stress test there were several 8 file/50mb updates.
    During the stress test the only update was 8 files/50mb.

    Today's update was 8 files/50mb.

    To me that seems related.

    Not sure if this has been asked;

    I know the longbow tooltip described more damage per farther away, but can anyone confirm the shortbow damage increase if you're closer? If not and it's only applicable to certain skills, then that'd be nice to clarify on the OP. Thank you.

    No shortbow does more damage closer or farther away from the target. However longbow does more damage farther away but its only for longbow1.

    The only server labels are US and EU. US = The world besides Europe. There's no time zones, like EST, PST, ect.

    Servers - Most MMOs have many servers and create very secluded communities with tons of people you’re very unlikely to ever play with. GW2 is doing things a bit differently by keeping the “Districts” concept from GW1, but this doesn’t mean everything is instanced. In fact it’s the complete opposite, “Worlds” or “Servers” will be entirely persistent as you’d expect from most other MMOs. Where this differs is say you’re on Server A and I’m on Server B, well I can just quickly and painlessly move from my server to yours with a simple click of the UI from within the game. These server transfers are completely FREE, you will pay no real money to do this. There is one small thing that must be noted, in order to prevent people from just switching to the server that wins WvWvW every 2 weeks, you’ll be unable to take part in WvWvW for an unknown amount of time after moving servers.

    Another way to explain this is imagine you’re playing X MMO and every server that the game is currently running in the world was linked up to a central database. Within that any player could switch between any server at any time allowing you to play with ANYONE who’s playing the game. Imagine, you could form friendships and guilds on different servers all with the same character.

    Is this true? Free server transfers?!?!?

    He's banned, so replying to this is pretty pointless.. but for anyone else curious, guesting is free and can be done any time so you are able to do everything except WvW (for obvious reasons) with friends that are on other servers.

    I think I posted this originally in the wrong thread. So here goes, I feel really -really- stupid asking this question, but is there an equivalent to a /who <guild> function in GW2?

    I did want to be a part of the MMOC guild during the BWE's, but I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to search for people by guild... once answered, I'm sure I'll feel like a dumbass.
