Wildstar - Free to Play Live
Earlier this year, Carbine announced that Wildstar was moving to a free to play model. That day is finally here! You can find out more about the Free to Play transition or grab the new smaller client and some addons. The Wildstar subreddit also has some helpful links.



Guild Wars 2 - Heart of Thorns Trailer
The first Guild Wars 2 expansion is only a few weeks away and ArenaNet recently published the launch trailer. Don't forget that they also made the base game free to play with some restrictions recently as well. Guild week starts on Tuesday, with information on the new guild features coming in Heart of Thorns.

Certainly happy that new communities have sprung up and new friendships have been formed. But not at the expense of fairplay. (holinka)
Unfortunately, a few people have circumvented those restrictions and we've had to create additional measures. (holinka)
I am not sure I understand. So working together as a team is frowned upon in an MMO?
Seems like you're twisting my words. (holinka)

Why no just remove the (Ashran) debuff from the game? take less code hrs, Please?
We think it's important that all players that enter Ashran have an equal opportunity to compete. (holinka)
idk if you've been to ashran but they all seem extremely one sided, mostly in favor of alliance
I receive an equal number of "Horde always wins" and "Alliance always wins" complaints. (holinka)

Ghostcrawler Tweets
Ghostcrawler still occasionally talks about WoW. Remember that he no longer works for or speaks for Blizzard.

Exactly. So maybe let's give up on the whole petition to get someone fired strategy. (Autocorrect said "furred" lol.) (OccupyGStreet)

If you aren’t controversial, either you’re a puppet or you do nothing important.
That may be the case, but some companies view social media as a distraction, so being controversial is a net loss. (OccupyGStreet)

    IDK how GW2 does their endgame but WoW endgame is a poo too. There's PvP and PvE, both can consist of many things. Blizzard's endgame for PvE is Raids. Professions, quests, reputations, exploration, and everything else all take a back seat to beating up some random boss.

    I don't PvP, but are they still working on Ashran? Really? Nothing Legion-y to do?

    Seems most odd.

    Anything they do now is just to keep people in there longer than need be. Like the debuff if you leave early. They don't try to do any balancing, and if they mention it, it's because someone brought it up in a tweet, making Holinka shrug it off and say "If we do this, then xyz happens."

    Gw2 is not changing model as such, they are just moving the cost for the full game to the Heart of Thorns expansion. So the vanilla client is a free trial, and a very nice trial at that. It's like how Wow bakes previous games into one purchase, except only for the expansion in GW2's case. anyway, it's really fun to play on the side for me, I really enjoy some of it and you don't feel the need to get your money's worth.

    No idea about wildstar but scifi doesn't appeal to me as much.

    And here come the retards thinking GW is "grindy" and no "end game" the same people that need to be handheld through an entire game just to learn how to use an autoattack.

    If the whole 'video game' thing doesn't work out, I'd probably watch a Wildstar cartoon.

    On the positive side, you guys can always start on a PvP realm, no queues there.

    So instead of offering a rebuttal you resort to petty insults, stay classy.

    Kind of tired of all these posts where you have no clue of what the Twitter excerpts are all about..... CAN you seriously put some context in what the Q&A is about.

    "Merc Mode players can whisper the opposite team" Holinka's response "What did you like or dislike about this?". Erm I dunno maybe the FUCKING SPYING POSSIBILITES?!. I mean I don't play the game anymore but I'm still keeping up with the news and Holinka is just making me wonder how he even ended up in this field of work.

    I liked what happened in the trailer, but I agree the quality of the cinematic was kind of low.

    How embarrassing, your ignorance is showing :P

    GW2 doesn't have raids. And the game has received overwhelmingly more PvE updates and support then it has PvP.

    He just praised GW1 as legendary, while putting down GW2. Something I starkly disagree with since I thought GW1 was mediocre and GW2 great, but if you were to identify him as any sort of "fanboy" based on his post, it would be a GW1 fanboy not a Blizz fanboy.
