It's... somewhat annoying for people who come in the Guild Wars TWO thread to read so many comments that are ONLY focused on GW1 and nothing else. If anything, people coming here are the people interested in Guild Wars 2 and by no means all of them should be interested in Guild Wars 1. I know there's a very thin relationship between GW1 and GW2 with those extra stuff you will get if you farm whatever you need to farm, but I personally find it not enough to justify those kinds of posts. Have a nice evening everyone
    I think this thread suits our needs just fine. There's nothing stopping someone from coming in to discuss Guild Wars 2 nor is there any reason to cease discussion about the original Guild Wars. Making a separate thread is both redundant and senseless.

    It's not really needed, as I see it this thread has kinda run it's course and it's mostly just the long time followers of the GW that post in this thread, we now have an entire forum so I don't really see how it can bother you.

    I actually agree with the GW1 thing. I don't care to read any of the GW1 stuff in the forum and I don't care about the HoM. I disliked GW1, but am excited for GW2.

    That said, it has not been derailing enough to warrant any action. Even if a GW1 thread were to be made, GW1 will still be talked about in the Gw2 threads because it is relevant to GW2 in a few ways.

    need people opinions, what is the easiest pvp title to get for a newbie? so far i have done RA twice with highest winning streak of like 8 or so, but since your team is random well it could do either way. spammed FA for Kurzick rep, just need another 90k rep to get to the 550k mark, dunno if that's a pvp title or a faction title or both. and that's pretty much the extent of my pvp experience in GW atm.

    If you're going for 30/50 HoM, forget about the PvP title. It's a very expensive/hard to get title in a veteran PvP enviroment, and is not worth the weeks or months of time investment.

    As said above forget it, the only way to "easily" get a PvP title is to buy Zaishen keys and chances are that you will never have enough money for that.

    bah, this annoys me. it's a juicy 3 points that i was hoping to get. pity.

    Allegiance, be it Kurzick or Luxon, is still a PvE title; easiest PvP title is probably Zaishen via Z-Keys. Spend your Balth Faction on keys, and try and do the daily Zaishen quests to save up coinds to get more keys.

    Well, not if it's moderated imo. In almost any other topic on these boards you will get moderated for much less avoiding of the topic. I would understand if the post is talking about GW2 and comparing features there with GW1. But it's ONLY about GW1. Nothing else. Maybe not the best example, but when Blizzard was giving a WoW pet to those who bought SC2, imagine me talking only about SC2 in strictly WoW-related topics.

    It's not really needed, as I see it this thread has kinda run it's course and it's mostly just the long time followers of the GW that post in this thread, we now have an entire forum so I don't really see how it can bother you.
    I don't get you tbh. What do I care if we have an entire forum, when this is the only topic wiht general discussions and information? If anything, exactly because there's a whole subforum now, things should be more separate.

    P.S. Haha, funny thing is, the way the debate goes reminds me of the way GW2 optimists vs pessimists debate goes ^^ "I don't see how it can bother you". Well, just cause me =/= you, that's why. Same reason why lack of factions or lack of dueling would bother ME. Stop looking at things through your own prism and disregard the opinion of others. It's the same behavior in every other GW topic out there - trying to invalidate the opinion of the others.

    P.S.2 A quick browsing through the forum showed this - http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ments-Progress . As you can see, it's done and it's working, 5 days 5 pages, people are posting and it's dedicated to exactly the same stuff. So can we redirect all GW1 posts there, please? :/

    No, but you CAN stop whining and derailing this thread. At least when we discuss the original Guild Wars it's somewhat relevant to Guild Wars 2; this is not. I'm not even sure why you're making such a big fuss about it.

    Cause it's a forum and as such I can express my opinion on things? Not to mention your post doesn't add anything to the discussion either and is just as useless. And mind your language, please...

    Doesn't that go both ways?

    Don't compare GW1 to SC if you want to compare it to anything compare it to the old Warcraft games.

    And honestly I don't care if you or even trollsbane (that's right he might be a mod but he's still just a user) don't care for GW1, no matter how you look at it GW1 is relevant to GW2, it's the same world, there's lore and important characters and more there, hell most GW2 skills are in GW1 as well and last but not least the HoM is shared with GW2 and quite a lot of people have picked up GW1 for that reason.

    EDIT: Obviously I meant no disrespect to trollsbane, I just meant the relevance of GW1 is indisputable.

    I think the whole objection to GW1 posts are people that hated the first game, and try to mentally disassociate GW2 from it.
    But the fact is, that's their problem, not mine. And if they have such an issue with people posting about GW1, then don't read it.

    To this and all those uninterested in the GW1 discussion: Why are you in this thread? If you're looking for strictly Guild Wars 2 Information, http://www.guildwars2.com and http://arena.net/blog/ are where you'll find the latest and greatest. If you're looking for strictly Guild Wars 2 conversation, there are a multitude of threads already within this section of the forums. This thread was once the catch-all for Guild Wars 2 info and discussion, which includes Guild Wars 1 because Guild Wars 1 -is- still relevant to Guild Wars 2. These days it's really become more of a general discussion thread where users kinda just talk about the game(s). If you want strictly to avoid the GW1 info, then don't click on the thread, regardless of how shiny or big it may be.

    Just Your Average Lurking Huntard LOLPRIEST forum lurker now.

    And I think that the majority of your posts are blindfold generalization. Same with your generalization of people who, oh Lord, even dare to compare GW2 to WoW. I did play GW2 a little, and I do respect the game highly. And I still don't care about it in the Guild Wars TWO: The One Thread
    And how do you suggest I find out what a post is about without reading it...? Gosh, you're a really interesting guy...

    Sorry, but I can say one big "lol" to that. Why am I in this thread? Read the bolded part in my reply to the previous quote. Is the name of the thread "Guild Wars franchise thread"? No. Is it "Everything about the Guild Wars universe"? No. Basically you're suggesting me that if I want info about Guild Wars TWO, I should NOT enter the Guild Wars TWO thread. I mean. WOW! And same goes for GW1 - If you are looking strictly for GW1 info, there's a topic in this very forum that's exactly related to GW1 farming. Or to use your own quote (last sentence of it) - "If you want strictly to discuss GW1 info, then don't lcick on the thread, regardless of how shiny or big it may be, but click on the thread that is made for THIS VERY PURPOSE". Hi.
