Around the same time they made the announcement initially... way back in April before Prepurchase was available.
ETA: That was April 6thHere are some answers and clarifications for you! First, if you purchase the game from https://buy.guildwars2.com/ you'll automatically be sorted into the right region.
And don't worry -- we want you to play with your friends wherever you are. This policy only affects where you can login from -- not which worlds you can access. People from NA will be able to play with people from EU at launch. We've got two datacenters -- one in NA and one in EU. Those who do not fall into either of those two regions will default to the NA datacenter.
Finally, we are aware that a lot of our players travel, and we are looking into a solution for you.
Hope that helps some! ~RB2
They never intended to lock the game in an ongoing manner, it was only for purchase due to the obvious economic/partner issues. The details of the system hadn't been finalised, but for obvious reasons they needed to inform customers of the restrictions before they bought a copy of the game from the wrong region. Now that the system is in place, people are claiming it was because of their complaints, when in reality it was always going to be this.
It's like saying that if I complain enough the sun will come up tomorrow, and when it does, you have me to thank.
I <3 Mif, you made my night.
And dear mif, do share, if they intended to completely strip the geolocational lock, why pray tell did they tell us they would implement it and details about implementation in great detail in the first place? Why did they take months from initial release of information about geolock to actually telling us that yeah, it's cancelled.
But yeah, it's all about the sun going up. In other news for mif, Dorothy Gale called - she wants Scarecrow back.
I'm currently stationed in Europe (U.S.A.F.). I only want to play the U.S. version of the game as all my friends and family are going to be playing on the U.S. servers obviously.
This basically says that I can't?
Or has anyone heard of a workaround for this situation? I've tried directly calling them...but that isn't working...The "help" desk isn't very helpful to say the least...
Do you think a friend of mine could log in the first time and then I could log in after that? Or would it become region locked or whatever because they'd see me logging in from an IP in the U.S. and then in England immediately afterwards?
They announced that they would work on a solution at the same time they made the announcement. It may have been the inevitable clarification post they always make half an hr after the lil post on guru....but yh, same bloody difference.
Also.....was very happy to read about non-EU-US regions being able to use either version

GW2 : Plzbegentle - Ruins of Surmia EU - Sylvari Engineer
WoW: Vergin - Deathwing EU - Elf Resto Druid (27/05/05 - 02/04/12 Perma-Banned- Unhappy whinning PvP customer - whos begged from 4.1 to get rid of the RNG of Regrowth ... )
It seems ppl have the energy to whine for a game , for not beeing exactly like their <<main>> game , while it dont have a SUB , and they dont have the courage to whine at their Game Master for slacking and producing few PvE content ...
I hope they don't wait too long to implement that. I'm looking forward to taking established EU characters over to US servers to guest while I play with US friends.Sometime after the release of Guild Wars 2, we will introduce free "guesting,”
Posted this in the one thread last night when the info came out, way ahead of you Mif
Data centers are just the place were they physically have their servers. EU data center have the european servers. US data center have the US server. You cant connect to the EU servers to play on US servers.
As an example in GW1. When you are in the European district then you are connected to the EU data center and their servers. When you switch to American district you reconnect to the US data center and their servers.
