    Being critical is a burden which some people loves to bear.

    Wow, over a quarter of the votes? In a vote between 50 games? I wonder how big the number was.

    This should give Guild Wars 2 a bit more attention - I'm noticing a LOT of the comments for that link from people going "Guild Wars 2? What's that?"

    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    well when the developer puts out tweets and posts it on facebook asking fans to vote i would hope GW2 won. You dont see Blizz asking for votes on their forums or twitter (didnt even check)

    Im excited for the game too but it won because it was advertised to ppl that wouldnt normally use ign.com (like me)

    I do see a shared link on their Facebook. I don't really lurk in their forums anymore, and don't much care for twitter.

    World of Warcraft shared a link.
    Friday
    Vote for World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria in the IGN People’s Choice Award and help make it the game of gamescom 2012. Hurry, voting closes at 19:00 CEST this coming Sunday!

    In regards to this:
    1. The accounts will have a system authenticator (digital and possibly physical) similar to WoW - official information will come out next week.

    2. In case of account hacking the account may be restored to their prior state before the intrusion.

    3. There will be live in-game support (similar to WoW) through tool that we already use to report BUGS, we will be able to contact a GM in real time.

    4. The end-game is not 100% completed, there is much work to do, but ANET is not expecting the the end-game to be reachable quickly, they are now focused on the release, if all goes well they will move on to work at 100% in the endgame (DiabloIII nostalgia??).

    PS - They are aware of the disaster of Diablo with the end-game and ensured that will not happen to GW2, after the release team will jump all just work in end-game.

    5. Are being explored new methods of PvP, GvG is confirmed to return to GW2, but said they could not disclose much more.

    6. New merchandise will be launched on 28/08/2012, including Dragon T-Shirts.

    We'll absolutely have a GM team that helps support the game at live, the rest of it is partially incorrect information or just plain wrong. You'll start seeing information about our post-ship plans shortly (as early as today on some press sites) but it'll come from developers specifically.

    See you in game on Thursday!

    It's indeed good news that we'll have authenticators. A pint of ale for our good Asuran Chronomancer.

    o_O that one actually looked nice.

    Don't get this the wrong way, but the only other video I saw about a dungeon (Ascalonian catacombs) was quite boring, and didn't impressed me in the least.

    Well, consider me impressed now. Its official.

    That term is more used by WoW fans then the anti-WoW youtube community. "New mmo? Bet their fans think of it as the next WoW killer and the holy grail of messiah!"
