    Nope. Not at all. Very good news to know that they did not pick some rubbish engine up and try to rebuild/recode around it.

    Now I just hope they let me bind to my mouse wheel A little sarcasm there, but I do hope they do.

    Wait, I was informed that GW2 is going to run on the Havok engine. Wasn't that engine developed after GW1?
    Even if they're using a familiar engine, I still give them props for pulling off how amazing the game looks, and I hope it won't be limiting like the modified WC3 engine has been for about 3 years. Then again WoW is 7 years old, so I can't blame it.

    They use Havok to provide destructible environment and ragdoll animation of creatures and Umbra's Occlusion culling technology. And yes they use a moded version of the gw engine, you werent miss informed

    That's very good to know, thank you very much.
    You know, it really makes me wonder if they'll be using the Havok engine in order to blow up cities in the future. That would be awesome, and many MMO players have been wanting to see the storyline in their favorite MMOs to effect how the game is played on a personal level. One day you could be running through Lions Arch, and the next thing you know you're getting crushed by falling buildings. Your favorute NPC is dead. You must now learn to adjust, even if for a short while. It would be like a DE x10. Pretty much the Havok engine gives you the middle finger while you're dying your armor.

    hahaha!

    You might want to check out totalbiscuts pvp videos, it shows how you can use a catapult, to blow up a roof of a huge building

    Pretty sure I can run it, just built this PC back in the summer with Guild Wars 2 as one of the potential games I'd play.
    We will stand above the city, rising high above the streets
    From tops of buildings we will look, at all that lies beneath our feet
    We will raise our hands above us, cold steel shining in the sun
    With these hands that will not bleed, my father's battle will be won!

    With me running around everywhere this year, I'd like to get a laptop that can run guild wars 2 maybe on medium settings? (I assume wouldn't be as hard since laptops usually have a lower res) However, I also want some /decent/ battery life. What would be a good compromise? (And I can't find that excel spreadsheet that shows what kind of card needed for different graphics settings)

    To put things in perspective, one of the founders of ArenaNet and current CEO is Mike O'Brien. When he worked for Blizzard he developed Battle.net, wrote the 3D engine for Warcraft 3, invented the MPQ archives that Blizzard still use, and had a hand in coding Diablo 1 and 2, as well as Starcraft. So when the boss has a resume like that, you can be sure the company has a very strong code base, and isn't really the kind of place you'd last very long if you write buggy bad code.
    Where do you get everything from? You're a damn Wiki.

    That would make sense. I still think he should open his own wiki. xD Or he could just have a 24 hour Q and A since he doesn't sleep.

    I'm telling you guys, Mif is a ANet employee! That, or he's really a Scilon overlord seeking to strip Colin of his meme fame and claim it for himself! Damn yooouuu!!!

    Please Help Me. I literally bought a new computer in hopes to actually play new games and mainly guild wars 2.

    Here is my spec:

    Operating System:Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit (6.1 Build 7601)
    RAM (Memory) : 4096 MB
    CPUProcessor): Intel (R) Core (TM)2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66Hz (4 CPUs), ~2.7Ghz
    Direct X: Direction X 11
    GPU (Graphics card): ATI Radeon HD 5850

    I can't run RIFT with over 60 FPS in low/mid/custom settings so I am worrying if I can even run GW2. Or unless I have to get a better video card.

    That should be more then enough for ultra settings and probably low shadow. Pop a 460 gtx and you can max that baby.

    CPU: Intel quad core 2.6 ghz
    RAM: 8 Gigs
    GPU: Nvidia GTX 560ti
    OS: Windows vista 64 bit
    Direct X: Direct X 11

    I know my CPU is a little outdated, but I'm pretty confident it can run GW2 pretty well.. feel free to correct me if i'm wrong since I'm not really tech savy.

    We don't know exactly what Gw2 specs are just yet but from wait you listed you should be good to play.
