ANet had to shut down sales to keep the experience decent for whatever people are playing at the moment, it really sucks and it's their fault for not being prepared...but what's happened has happened and had to be done, so they are sacrificing additional sales for now.

    I am sure they are buying more servers as we speak (hopefully Oceanic or West-coast servers, I would switch to those in a heartbeat).
    It has nothing to do with them being unprepared, it was their game plan all along. Like when their digital preorders were "sold out". They didn't want to have to open servers because of the classic MMORPG problem where most of your added server space is eventually wasted. Even WoW has this problem. The decided to take a different approach and purposely slow down the growth of the game to let the population spread out without added servers that may or not be a waste once the population spreads out and that new game hysteria is gone. Its also a marketing tool. People who haven't bought the game would be like "Damn, if Anet is willing to halt sales because they feel like 'too many' are buying the game then it must be good".

    Maybe one of you guys can help me here. In another thread, someone posted their sylvari and it looks amazing to me. I wanna make mine have the same skin tone but I can't seem to find it. That, or it just looks a little different on my screen.

    Here's their picture. They're summourn. I'd message them but I don't have 10 posts, and I don't feel like spamming the forum with useless posts just to get to 10. Well I guess I'm pretty close by now but this might work as well, so whatever.


    Okay so I had to get 10 posts before I could post a link so I'm gonna go ahead and PM them as well. Thanks for any help!

    Sadly, I made this character in an old BWE before (I think) the colors were named. Does anyone know/recognize that color and can help him out? D:

    She is really lovely. I can see why he'd want to make one for himself.

    Looks like Oak skin with the 2nd pattern on the bottom row with an Orange pattern color.

    I wish they gave more control of the colors with Sylvari. There's just green that gets defaulted in all over the place, especially if you choose the smoother skins.

    Closest I could do in 5 mins, skin tone was Walnut and the pattern colour is Orange, If you want the skin a bit lighter you could also use Oak.

    And sorry for the shitty quality =P.

    EDIT: Oops forgot the hair colour, looks like Lemon or Harvest Gold, hard to tell tabbing in and out on this shitty computer.

    Wow, that looks pretty much perfect. I think the only thing I did differently was give her black eyes. But the skintones are right on.

    So I got it right, awesome! I guess I should have tried it with a female character.. I feel so dumb, haha. I made a male and I guess with the face/hair I chose, it looks a little different. Thanks!
    Here's my male version. I did change the eyes a bit. I don't like many of the male hairstyles so I ended up going with this one. It's kinda neat because the skin color goes into the hair as well.
    There was another picture Summourn posted that had actual hair, but it was a further away picture. That's why I used this one instead. In case you're wondering why I didn't go with the stick hair.
