    We should move this into "Game Breaking issues" AND make it a sticky.

    Sorry if i joke about it, but it's really silly.

    Hair/fur has been the holy grail of computer graphics for a long time. Making it flow and drape over a model (especially one that can change gear) sounds like one of the hardest bits of code/rendering and processing imaginable. I wonder if we even have the consumer level technology to even attempt it.

    That said, GW2's hair looks very good for an MMO, but like The Secret World, I bet the overall graphics will be highly restrictive to alot of potential players' systems.

    The above screenshot is a very mild example of some of the more idiotic hair clipping with many hairstyles.
    Hair bothers people that much? Really? This isn't the Sims.

    You know what's irritating? Being trolled by the server, that hands you some LAG in exchange for PAIN in the middle of an elite 1v1 fight against a veteran. On my Thief. Which is squishy.
    I am not female but hair clipping in games has always bothered me, especially in wow where it cuts right through the massive shoulderpads.
    It is as annoying as having a sheathed sword clipping through a shield that is hanging on you're back, Or long ears that clip through the sides of helmets.

    If it happened in WoW, GW 2 fanboys would point out how WoW sucks because hair clips in the game. Wait, it already happens and they already did. The irony.

    Don't tell me how people work.

    That's pretty bad, honestly. Especially when it's right at the char creation screen.

    It wouln't bother me terribly, but it's a legitimate complaint on a 2012 game.

    Also, I love how everyone praises how beautiful the graphics look, but when there is a clipping bug: "oh, performance and gameplay are much more important than graphics!".

    Yeah it is, of all problems people care about, you care about hair clipping? If you don't like it... take short hair?
    There are enough " Pretty" short hairstyles

    My Norn's Goatee/beard thing constantly stabs him in the neck during cutscenes. Pretty annoying.

    For a game touting its looks its pretty sad when they cannot even get character animations right. This is a social game, their words, too bad many outfits and character combinations just look bad and only because of clipping (won't even touch those two foot tall rats with robots)

    Because this is a legitimate complaint. Even if it started off as a troll (which I dont think it did), enough others in the thread have taken up the banner to prove that; yes, this is an issue. Potentially a very minor one, but immersion-breaking all the same.

    That's good for you man.

    Seriously though, generalizing people into being female because they are annoyed by hair clipping? Now that's worth a big fucking LULWAT?

    I can honestly see why his would annoy some people. It doesn't bother me to the extent that I get very annoyed by it, but I notice it nonetheless. You'd imagine that Arenanet had the decency to actually get some proper physics going on the hair, but I suppose they didn't feel like it.

    Ever seen a STRAIGHT guy do his make-up or straighten his hair in the mirror of his car? exactly. No, you haven't.

    If someone brought this up and preliminary research showed this would take X hours to complete and I'm looking at those X hours that could be put towards getting the guild system usable faster, I'd probably choose the guild system.

    Feel free to supplant any actual game feature that 'does' something for the guild system. Hair clipping or cloth physics being imperfect are such minor issues that I would probably put those on the lowest ranked priority. I don't think a significant amount of people reconsider a purchase of a game because of cosmetic clipping. Some people might, but not a significant amount. This isn't Hair Wars 2, the highly interactive, life-like barber shop simulator that promises improved hair physics by way of it's TruStrand 2.8 shader model. It's Guild Wars. So the guild system takes precedence.

    If you wanted skill-based PvP, why didn't you start playing DotA?
