    Yh...my worst GW2 nightmare atm is that the server gets jammed on release day and I can't get on...or there's a problem with installing...or I have terrible lag for some reason...
    ...It keeps me up at night man

    I really hope that there isn't huge que times.. I don't mind waiting a few minutes but half hour long ques might be bad. Luckily with the free server transfer system you can start on a low pop server then move to the server you actually want to be on a week or two later after the ques die down.

    Expect big wait times, the first day. Let's be realistic here, You got the amount of players from gw1 then you got players from pretty much every other mmo out there. I say this because almost every mmorpg i'v played in the last few years has had players saying they can't wait for guild Wars 2.

    It's going to be one late night boys and girls.

    I know others have quoted such things as Anet's presentations in other countries using their server in Seattle and still having no lag, and that the lag we're all mostly familiar with is in wow which has an old engine and GW2's will be much better, but I still worry lol.
    I just try to be optimistic

    To the best of my knowledge nothing has been released yet on servers. I looked for it specifically a couple weeks ago.

    Only if you like Guild Wars. The game had some huge issues like invisible walls, clumsy UI, and clunky combat/movement. It is also an enormous grind. I personally wouldn't do it.

    If not for the rewards then at least for some interesting lore/fun. The game is cool, and different.

    Get the free trial version and try it out. But unless you really like it and think that you can get your HOM rewards quick (you got ATLEAST 3 months before GW2) and if you dont really care about the money, then dont bother with it. Getting 50/50 HOM + GWAMM took me 800 hours of play in 5 months. Thats over 5 hours a day for 5 whole months and for that you sort of need a big holiday.
    If you think you'll be quick then I guess you could get to 30/50 HOM within 1-2months. So its up to you to decide if its worth the hassle

    I bought a package with 3 of the games/expansions, tried it out some. As previously mentioned the combat is a bit clunky, but it works - actually had fun with being an elementalist and I think it motivated me to be one in GW2. I LOVED the character design, it fits me way more then WoWs did. Not that it had that many more options but, I made a really cute asian girl in factions I think it was... and man was she hot!
    The world was kinda nice but WoWs world fits me better. Why that is could be a matter of personal taste.
    Gear design looked freaking awesome but all I could find was blacksmithing improvements to my gear, and it looked the same as the starter gear, so I never got to enjoy any cool set...
    Is it worth to play GW1 for only the crossover benefits? I don't think so. You should at least enjoy the game if you plan to play it for that long! :S
    "The world is filled with lies! Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness. Thou shalt not commit adultary. These are all lies, deceptions. I don't want to be killed. I don't want to be victim of theft. That is why they use lies like justice and moral to protect their weak selves. The original truth is the survival of the fittest. One must devour it all, wether it be other humans, wealth, power or the world itself! All hail Britannia!" - Charles vi Britannia

    Said from a player who played the game for over 4 years actively, yes it definitely is. It's probably different from everything you're used to, but if you like the set that Guild Wars plays in and you're excited for the upcoming game, and surely with the low price the game currently is. I would recommend it.

    Guess the trilogy of Gw1 is needed to have the crossover benefits, or be eligible for them. Especially if u have reputation from the last to do, or am I mistaken?

    You can get 30 with 1 game + the expansion. Recommended is to get them all. If you go for 1 game, get the original.

    I bought it, had an original account but no expansions so I just ordered them all again and added it to the original account. Cost me £18; then I went and bought all the skill packs for about £35 :P invested nearly £55 into Guild Wars 1 just so I can attempt to get 30/50!

    I'm a cool kid!

    Enjoying the game, somewhat. I'm playing my warrior that I made all those years ago because I had completed every prophecies mission on it. Just factions to go now and then I need to do them all on hard-mode. I keep thinking that if I played a ranged it would be more fun, but I love playing melee. It's a long grind, sometimes it can get tedious. The story telling and missions are good fun though. If you do get it I'd recommend joining a guild.

    My install for all 3 campaigns + EotN is ~2.8gb, but it may change since I haven't loaded into any Prophecies content since I've reinstalled.

    I did the little fix to make the whole game download in the launcher when you first run it. My Guild Wars file is sitting at 3.96GB.

    Yea there's a cmd line arg that lets you force it all to download too, I kept forgetting to do it, until right now. I gather you can shortcut it, as well.
