    Any updates on the Stress-test rumors floating around?

    People are going to do that regardless. There are people who have pre-purchased that STILL expect raids. o.O
    Your absolutely right of course I guess I was just hoping for them to be a bit smarter than this. Thus far they have shown themselves to be very professional and I just hate to see any company willingly give haters ammunition to flame GW2 sucks and Anet is joke threads. Hell I dont think, despite chomping at the bit to play anyone would mind waiting for it to be done. Sure its not ever done per say but done in so much as what they have implemented thus far is 100% playable and complete.

    It may very well be and the its not done comment is simply taken from them meaning it will be added to and expanded in time as they allow the event to develop further but it would be nice to hear something from Anet on it.

    Companies need to stop assuming its audience will give it any slack at all and rely on its good graces to not totally flip out and froth at the mouth. I have lost faith in community patience, good will or common sense.

    Thinking about it again(yep it is still in my head), the "End game" video mentions one zone? that has a meta event, which is hard they say, but you have to do it to unlock the dungeon/s so with that in mind, i think possibly at Gamescon they mentioned something along the lines of that vid and that they will be adding more and more stuff to "end game" as per Vid and that they have more stuff anyway, but they didn't give it all away.

    Possibly misinterpreted by whomsever post from whatever forum, then posted here and was translated from Portuguese as "not finished" when in fact it is but as we know GW2 is always changing, in terms of content/zones/live world etc blah.

    I think only mistake Anet have made is calling it "End game" a GW2 isn't really about that. I see people getting confused about what GW2 level 80 is all about.

    If my post doesn't make sense i shall return to bashing my head on a brick wall, because i have a bad cold, and my brain is mush.

    never wise to make such conclusions from one's man's interpretation of what could be no more than an overheard conversation.
    I'd rather trust their often-shown professionalism

    Does anyone here know if the free server transfers will come with the 7 day cooldown? I'm having last minute fears that playing with my US friends on weekends and EU friends during the week may prove more difficult than I anticipated.

    I think this is exactly what happened. They might have said something among the lines of:

    "At the moment we have stuff in place for level 80 players, however, after launch, if all goes well, we will focus 100% on endgame features.

    EDIT: stupid gw2 mail, I already bought your stupid CE pre-purchase, I don't want to pre-purchase again. Thought there was a new blog post or something

    My guess would be no. I don't think "guesting" comes with a cooldown, and since the free server transfers will replace "guesting" until it's done, I don't see why it would have a cooldown.

    Eww, get rid of them. A free roaming iggy is going to make your life a lot more difficult than feeding him in an enclosure but you could feed small amounts multiple times throughout the day so he does not leave any fruit behind, make sure you thoroughly disinfect all your feeding agents with F10 or something similar, and if that fails, or you've already got them, set a honey trap. Empty soda bottle, fill it 1/3rd full with water, put 2 spoons of honey and 2 spoons of sugar in it. This is like crack for them. They will go in and drown or gorge themselves to death. If you find they can get out, cover the top in clingfilm and poke a few very small holes in it. They're too stupid to get back out of that.

    PS. Sorry for the off topic.

    The one's they've said will be available for release while the servers are stabilizing? They'll be separate from the 7 day cooldown. That cooldown is for once the 2 week WvW sessions are implemented. They haven't said that they're all going to be synchronized..but it stands to reason.

    In Kessex, there was a supply caravan escort along the southern road that could fail. Also, there was another that wouldn't complete if you didn't escort the NPC the whole way.

    Re: Not finished.

    So Anet have been determined to not release 'til its done...then, a week before release, they mention in passing at a games fair "oh, no - it's not done".

    I just don't buy it. The only way I'd buy it is if they were talking about something that even the most motivated of the "don't sleep until max level" brigade could never possibly get to...and if that's the case, that's fair enough anyway.

    Hey guys I was just wondering if anybody is using the Windows 8 release preview to play Guild Wars 2? I'm using it and when I do a ''can I run it'' test it say's the OS isn't supported, I'm just wondering if that's accurate or does it run fine on the release preview.
