    Sooo... you are actually saying:

    Is my copy of Guild Wars 2 tied to my region?

    Yes. To play from North America you must purchase a North American copy of the game. To play from Europe you must purchase a European copy of the game. Note that this restriction impacts where you can play from, not which game worlds you can choose to play on.

    By purchasing the correct copy of the game, you're supporting the game in your country, and you'll be connecting to your local data center, using your local customer support team, and downloading the correct language support for your country.

    One must buy the game in the region they play from, but can play within the game anywhere they'd like.
    Lets just say I was hoping I was reading it the way I said.......because otherwise I might not be able to play this game at all at launch.

    If this is so....I'm having a very bad day.

    ALSO they stated pretty damn clearly that they are working on a solution for people who move around and live in different regions. So say your American and buy the NA client and then move to the U.K they will have a work around for you

    I really do not understand why people are having a hard time understanding this? O.o
    Gives me some hope then.

    "His" did not refer to you, get off your high horse.

    Again, note that "play on" does not translate to "set home server to"
    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.

    All it says is that you're able to visit a server from another region. It makes no mention of whether or not you can set one as your home server.

    Too scared to respond in any way that isn't dry and matter of fact.

    That post you are quoting is not on that subject. Choose another post or address what I was speaking upon in that quote.

    In all fairness though, one would assume because we can actually choose where we want to play , once logged in that one could in fact choose said region as a home server.. and yes this is just an assumption.

    It matters so I know what argument you are bringing- which could be one of two separate concerns. This is the point of the quote function.

    Accused? Ummhm.

    Home servers are linked to account. Where you want to play is irrespective of region. A fairly logic assumption, if there is some caveat just wait for launch.

    I know what the quote function is for, I didn't read your post fully and thought it was just you quoting the original link in another attempt to show how "perfectly clear" it is. But even with the wrong quote, it's quite obvious what I was referring to.

    I would say such an assumption is quite accurate! It wouldn't surprise me if this was how it worked.
