Bunch of teases!

There's a reason why people spend a lot of money prettying up the outside of their houses and making sure the grass is cut. I just think that ANet can use any dev resources for a better project.

I for one would LOVE my own house as i remember spending way to much time building houses on Sims 2 and 3.
OT: Anyone who can actually translate that language written on the teasers?
Perhaps it isn't for you, but there are enough people for which it is, enough to monetize it.
Full geared characters are transitory. And by in large, not unique. Outside of skins, natch.
That's a huge psychological draw seen in games like UO, SWG, Mortal, LOTRO, Radiant Arcana, Aion, etc.
People often spent more in the cash shop of Radiant Arcana for housing items & deeds than direct power increases. It works.
I just said in the post you quoted that public house viewing is not only possible but common place in MMOs that feature housing. It's a non-issue. Anyone you desire can see how awesome your house is. Public viewings & listings [by house ID or char ID] are essentially solved and in practice currently.The reason why I think player housing is useless is that if the normal playing public can't see your house then what's the point in building it?
They should add marriage aswell gimme a reason to reroll male
I really want Housing too. T Spent soo much time in EQ2 crafting all the furniture I could.
I will attempt to translate, though its only half of the map.
I like the way they did housing in DAoC. The housing area was instanced, but it wasn't just for you own house but for the entire realm. Once you entered the housing instance you could see hundreds of houses, cottages, villas and mansions created and decorated by other people. If GW2 were to have housing I'm hoping they do it the same way as Daoc did.
maybe they'll implement that treasure map thing now
This is what is translated I did not do the bottom part because that is freaken longAV
are proud to
of your drea
