    Now that Blizzcon is over, it's time to move on and let life return to normal. The topic has thoroughly been discussed for 2 days now, and further going into it will prove non-constructive.
    Just because Blizzcon is over doesn't mean we can't talk about it. Hey man, they are copying stuff from our game!

    Speaking of holidays, I wonder what they'll do with them in GW2 versus GW1. I'm hoping they won't just have the same type of events like they did in GW1, but I'd be totally cool with it if they do :P

    A lot of our posters like participating here because it isn't over moderated like GW2G is.
    So it would be appreciated if mods don't start dictating what we can and can't talk about...

    Regardless of the subforum you are in, this is a WoW fansite. Debate the name all you want, but it's right there in the general posting rules. Additionally, the subforum has rules against bashing other games.

    If a controversial thread remains open too long, especially when talking about game vs game, it goes to hell. We've all seen it time and time again. A WoW player will come in and call you all fanboys that are dumb. You will retaliate as well as report them. We'll come in and mod and be the bad guys. And it will go on and on.

    Don't pretend that I'm full of it. You know I'm not. You can't rip WoW and get mad when the WoW player sees it and rips you. And that's what will continue to happen.

    So instead, let's get back to what this subforum was created for. The topic of GW2. WoW doesn't have anything to do with it.

    If you think I'm wrong, take it to PMs.

    On another note, one thing I always liked about Arenanet is that they always updated their holidays each year, unlike many MMOs like WoW. Events like Canthan New Year (Chinese New Year), Halloween, and Wintersvale were always a blast.
    I hope they bring back their holiday events! Even though I don't think Cantha's New year will. Maybe Tyria will start up their own version?

    This will be my first Halloween for Guild Wars so i'm hearing there event is pretty good. I'm sure it's going to be pretty awsome in Gw2.

    Halloween in Guild Wars is pretty good. The arrival of Mad King Thorn and his reaping of AFKers is always amusing.

    I remember my first Halloween. I pretty much ran around going "OMG OMG!" as I got chased by things.

    AHahahahaa, the sylvari's expression is meme worthy.

    If they developed DEs specifically for holidays/national events, that'd make me so happy. I mean, they could just THEME a few certain DE and I'd be grateful!

    They could do so much with holidays. I'm really excited to see what they are going to do!

    I never played Guild Wars I, what holidays did they do in it, and how long did they last. Are they like WoW for like two weeks, or are they 1 day?

    Christmas, New Year's, Halloween and Dragon's Festival are the major events. I don't remember how long they last, been awhile since I participated in one. But I know it isn't very long.

    I wonder what kind of vegetable Sylvari would compare to? I'm thinking broccoli, steamed broccoli with cheese sauce sounds good.

    I was actually thinking maybe Cabbage and/or asparagus. Maybe Avocados, some kind of leafy layered veggie.
