    It *does* say "roughly", so, like I said, an estimate, but the two weeks was in reference, according to that page, to the patch.
    Yeah, I guess that was what I was getting at. Thanks anyway, chaud.

    The point is moot, now. But just explaining why people were thinking that.

    I can honestly say, I didn't see this coming so quickly.

    Happy day though, I can play with Lightspring sooner! I'm going to name mine Kelesti. It will spit acidic fury healing at everyone that refused to click it in the years past, while it yells at them to stop asking for ToC Lightwell or they will be banned.

    So, when the new season comes out, and the current season's gear moves down a peg to be available via Honor Points, what happens to last season's gear, which is currently available via Honor Points? Will that older season still be available via Honor? Will the weapons still be available? Will the cost be reduced?

    "...the release of the pre-expansion 5.0.4 patch on Tuesday, August 28," I see what you did there, Blizzard.

    No all media comes out on Tuesdays been that way forever.. and when I said Movies I meant DVD's not Box office just to clarify a little.

    And media coming out on Tuesdays has nothing to do with when people get paid or still have money Sales results are released on Monday, so by releasing on Tuesday new releases will have a full week of sales to count. Also it allows them to order more for the weekend if the early sales are strong.

It's basically a guarantee that there'll be insane server issues for the first couple days.

    Why wouldn't Blizzard wait about 1-2 weeks so the sparkle of GW2's wearing off for people who don't like the style/archetype changes, yet could possibly grow to like them in the future? They'd come storming back to WoW when 5.0.4 hits.

    Instead, as I said, we'll be able to log in on the 28th, give new talents a raid/bg or 3, think 'cool/awful' depending on how they affect us, then straight back into GW2 which will almost certainly solve their server issues within days, at the latest?
    GW2 will run for 3 days already on the 28th. ArenaNet did the stress tests with 2+ million players and we had no problems at all on those stress tests, so i think GW2 is ready for the launch

    WoW has problems and so does GW2 and the date is more than a coincidence, so what? Just play whatever the fuck you feel like playing, it's not like either game is going away any time soon. Plus, why do you care what other people will be doing or what they'll be playing?

    I'll be playing GW2 on the 25th and then checking the changes in WoW on the 28th and I'll still do my weekly 8/8hc clear as well AND STILL playing GW2.. And no, nobody divided by zero.
    THIS.

    Cannot believe all the cry-babies

    And how was this not expected? I mean, it's not like Blizzard has *ever* released patches or expansions at or near the dates of releases of competition games. It's well played, but kind of shitty. Businesses will be businesses though.

    Not too worried about it; I'll have been playing GW2 for 3 days by then

    SQUEEEEE

    Why must these comments be so full of GW2? Someone even said Blizzard is releaseing the expansion 3 months earlier than normal just to compete. Oh my goodness, yes, they should just wait with a finished product so that it doesn't possibly hinder the success of a "competitor". I see you have a lot of faith in the game you are moving to.

    There's no way in heaven or hell there were 2 million people online for those stress tests. They were predominantly during working hours on a weekday, for goodness' sake. And there were problems. Login, lag etc. They were fixed, and got better as it went, but no wayyyyy is it even a fraction of the numbers they'll have on release.

    Note - I think/hope GW2 will have a smooth launch, but no need to make up numbers about it, my friend.

    More reason to play Guild Wars 2 on launch day, yay!

  17. #237
    Pre Launch Patch vs GW2, sorry no contest here, GW2 for sure. I won't be playing wow again until 1 month before tier 15 is released , that way I can just faceroll the content, faceroll the next content and unsub again.

    Why must people compare games all the time like this? Are you that insecure about your choices in life that it even affects what games you decided to play? Honestly who cares what someone else will be playing.

    OT: I'm excited This will hold me over until Borderlands 2 and then MoP release!

    Exact same thing people say about every expansion. Things always seem to turn out fine though.
