    Anything for the views and or potential donations. Either that or they actually had a change of heart.

    Neither do I. I remember pretty well they said good things about it a couple times at least. And I don't watch them very often at all.

    They do question and doubt it a fair bit, but they do that with pretty much every game. Especially after GW2's strong showing during convention season, the hosts that have their doubts ended up loving it. They get Rubi Bayer (big Massively writer/GW fan) on there fairly often as well.

    Wowcrendor talks about WoW vs GW2 on his Q&A show. He's got a lot of good points, and hits the nail on the end with the problems that Cataclysm has.

    They did after some past conventions when a couple of those that host it got hands on demos of GW2.

    Admittedly it was the Rift fan girl that started all the hate, but the others were swift to join in. Though that Rift girl hates anything that isn't Rift when I've watched it.

    he didn't answer the question succinctly enough for my tastes. it was more of a here's why Mop was made and not an actual comparison between the games. tbh, i see it as half-stepping, but that's just me.

    He just resorted to the old cop out of "it's free so you can play both games"

    It is true after all. I picked up DCUO again since it's now free. I'm sure I'll continue my WoW sub while I play GW2. Having a bunch of games to play is so much more fun than having one.

    the question was not whether or not you could play WoW and GW2 concurrently, but if WoW will continue to retain its #1 MMO spot after GW2 releases.

    At around 12:40 he says there will be a team adding new content weekly. Has this been addressed before because I didn't think they would add anything new to each game except bug fixes just like the original GW.

    Obviously it won't be anything huge like new dungeons or DE's every week but just something small added on a weekly basis sounds bad ass.

    Maybe not new dungeons, but DE's are a good possibility, or at least smaller ones.

    They said in one interview/blog (don't remember exactly the source) that they're planning on releasing additional DE's almost immediately, some as additional stages of existing DE's and some as random DE's throughout the world.

    Here's a quote of Eric Flannum from GW2 guru dev tracker about this:
    Colin actually misspoke a little on this point. We will have a live team that will produce new content every week but we may not be doing a new build every week. So while we are technically adding new stuff on a weekly basis you guys may not see it right away. We aren't sure yet how often we'll be doing builds once the game goes live. Hope that clears up any possible misunderstanding.

    Eric is always there to make us sad again!

    Silly devs making mistakes all the time!

    Interesting screenshot from G-Star in Korea!



    Kinda liking the elaborate Korean style outfits. Wonder if we'll be able to get access to them?

    Gamescon equivalent:


    I wonder if this means they're going to make a localised version for Korea?
    And if they do, will they add in grinding?

    lol

    Korean Patch 1.1

    - Dramatically reduced the XP gain from DE's and Mobs
    - Removed many grind free DE's and replaced them with fields full of stationary mobs to slaughter
    - Loot from dungeons is now acquired via extremely rare random drops
    - Using dyes on armor has a chance to fail, destroying the dye and the armor
    - Keg Brawl mini game replaced with a Synchronised Dancing mini game hosted by Girls Generation!

    Actually, I haven't heard any "asian mmo" insults since Pandaland got announced. Glass houses it seems...
