Different from the recent Asian server thread
Anyone know if there's been any further word on the Asian release? I remember reading somewhere that it would come later than US and Europe...but I haven't heard any other news since then.
Specifically, I'm wondering about a China release. Has there seen any word on it from Anet?
I also think I remember reading something about NCSoft's normal guys Tencent running it here...can't source though.
I know GW1 was pulled because China wanted a China only server. Damn them
With the supposed ease we will have in GW2 with jumping servers...I'm also concerned about how viable a China only server would be...
I've got a few friends here who are absolutely clamoring for this game. Totally understandable considering most Asian MMOs...and that they see wow as good alternative....bless.
Hell, the guy next to me in the office here has literally spent the last 3 hours looking at vids and reading the uninitiated thread He's blown away by the visuals and features.
p.s. please don't turn this into a "China law - panda/skeletons thread"
Censorship on a piecemeal basis isn't the same as a law. If Anet actually asked nicely and dealt with any concerns...there's no legal reason whatsoever it wouldn't get released Except for maybe the whole international server thing....sigh.
p.s.s - I'm going to be on a European server I just want my good friends here to be able to play it locally if possible They can always come on an outside server if they want Through...whatever means necessary
