    Clever to put it in, however I see 2 sides of the argument as far as I can see.
    1) Are they saying (just like Rift did) to Blizzard; "We're gonna take you down and there's nothing you can do about it!".
    2) As someone said, a compliment to WoW? Being as tunnel-visioned as I can be I am going to go out there and say that it's the former.
    Personally I think it's a stupid thing to do. But it's their game.

    Does "We're not in Azeroth anymore" ring any bells? Oh yeah...or "We expect 12 million subs for SWtOR"? Or the little gem that Anet brought out called Aion that was s'pposed to kill WoW and started a nice little flamewar here on the forum?

    Anyways. Stll funny. I like it when developers take a shot at each other and I bet Blizz doesn't mind (if they have balls).

    So, in short: the internet.

    Anet didn't develop Aion. They only share a publisher (NCSoft) ... not developers.

    ANet didn't make Aion, NCSoft did.

    I hope Blizzard takes this as a challenge, GW2 is gunna be a great game but won't be a WoW killer. It's clever but meh who am I kidding this is going to bite them on the ass later after GW2 doesn't kill WoW. Bit RIFT on the ass too if I recall "We aren't in Azeroth anymore"

    And here I thought it was just Trion that liked to bad-mouth other MMOs. I'm disappointed.*

    * - This assumes that the translation is real of course.

    Now we wait for Blizzard's jab back I guess =p.

    95% of players won't even notice that, pretty clever indeed.
    People always take things too seriously, that tombstone doesn't necessarily mean "WoW's dead".

    It says "I played WoW and look at me now. If only I had been like you and stuck to playing GW2."
    Look at it this way: It's a grave for those characters who'll get abandoned by players who go back to WoW after playing GW2 and never return.
    Though I may misunderstand the sentence as my english skills are mediocre.


    But now since it was found this early I believe Anet will change it.

    Y'know, I hope this gets Blizzard worried. That way, you'll get competition between the games to be better, and therefore a better standard all around.

    Only problem is the rabid fanboys =(
