The problem when you make a game F2P is systems need to be designed around annoying players enough to pay. Some games are less annoying than others, but at their core they need to give you a reason to spend money. Burying pay-to-win mechanics under an initial layer of skill-to-win, providing advantages that become required for competitive play, roadblocks or surprisingly reduced game functionality tucked underneath paid barriers that weren't obvious when you started.
the more, the better ... leveling in wotlk/cata was hilarious with 5-15 people in ts³.
anyone planning to play on Riverside (EU/DE) ?
solo first weekend, then ill be over skype with my friend, doing WvW together and stuff
I'll maybe create a WvW guild. set up hours where everyone gets on vent or something and do WvW together
GPU: CF 2x 6950 2gb @ 870/1370 CPU: i2500k @ 4,9 Ghz Motherboard: P8Z68-VPRO PSU: Corsair TX 850W
CPU-Cooler: Hyper 212 EVO Ram: Corsair 2x 4 GB = 8 GB. 9-9-9, 24. 1600mhz
Monitor: Dell u2412m Mouse: QPAD 5K Headset: Corsair 1500 SSD: Intel 520, 240gb
Most likely it'll be solo. Only one of my RL friends has decided to pick it up and he isn't an avid gamer anyway so he won't be on much. It's a good thing the scaling down system exists though, since when he does log in I can team up with him and not feel like I'm diminishing his experience.
Imma be playing forever alone. None of my friends are really interested...
playing an mmorpg solo seems to kind of defeat the purpose ill be playing with a number of different friends, trying to corral everyone onto the same server
We're 5 mates playing together from the get-go so with friends.
Alone, for one cuz no I know is gonna play it and two cuz then I can do whatever I want without having to stick with my buddies all the time.
"Reminds me of a dog, you stare at it while it's playing outside... Running around in a circle, then stopping up, wagging with a wide "grin". Jumping around until you call for the dog, then it lowers its tail because it think it's done something bad... And then you throw the ball, seeing the tail go straight into the air in bliss! ^^" - Gehco

Alone till dungeons. I plan on staying up all weekend playing through it, my body has been waiting for this game for years and it's ready to stay up 3 nights in a row with a few power naps. I know I'll be alone for most of it, and that's exactly what I'll want. Thing I'm looking forward to most, running dungeons.
Me and my BF will be at our PCs in the same room but playing our characters alone, punctuated with cries of "wow, look at this" :P
I prefer to play alone so I can absorb things at my own pace and not feel rushed but we group so we can help each other out in sticky situations. Can't believe launch is so close after so many months of longing!
Nobody i know is going to play Guild Wars 2.. sigh. The pain of being so into First Person Shooters.
Mix of both.
At launch myself and 3 friends will be at a Big UK Gaming LAN event (Insomnia I46) where we will all be starting our characters together, but Im probably a bigger fan than they are so can see myself playing Solo quite a bit.

I never ask real life friends to play games with me, and if I do play with people in game, it's just for PVP/instances, I like to enjoy the lore solo and at my own pace. But to each his own. It's like practicing driving with someone more experienced - all they do is complain that you're going too slow or that you should stop respecting the rules so much, to the point where the experience becomes annoying.
