    If you don't like opinions, don't come to a public forum.
    As you said earlier, this is a forum, for discussion. You posted your opinion. I like opinions, which is why I'm on a forum, but your opinion involved wild assumptions which I, and a few other people, calmly discussed and gave you contrary information to consider, but you chose to ignore everything, make more assumptions and made sure you were as unpleasant as possible about it. If anyone doesn't like opinions here, it would seem to be you.

    Now, how about you stop with the petty jabs, and get back to discussing this game in a civilised manner before this thread gets derailed any more?

    That's funny. No. Really. I'll reiterate:

    I was quite content with my opinion and listening to others until you decided to make it personal.

    You made a post complaining about the use of Aion's character creation software, two people explain how you were taking it wrong, you post virtually the same post again, apparently completely ignoring what had been said. I wouldn't call that listening.

    Anyway, yes, I made the first jab as it seemed you were just trolling due to the abrasive tone of your posts and the apparent unwillingness to listen to reason. Apologies if you were not trolling. Now, can this end here please?

    Anyhows. Is there anyone on the American side of the house that's running through the prophecies campaign currently? Running all the missions with just heroes gets dreadfully lonesome.

    Aions character creation would be great since thats the only thing people say is great about that game

    you know, the concern about the aion editor has been raised and answered before:

    Wartower: Another point of criticism is the character editor. We still don’t know it since it has not yet been intergrated into the game and so we do not know which possibilities it will offer in the end. But as we have seen so far, most characters play along the lines of the western beauty-ideal. Will there be the possibility to add more variety to this, for example creating a small, bald and chubby character, or a more burly female norn warrior? We are not talking about extremes, such as in AION where you could create a tiny gnome with an oversized head and scrawny arms. I am simply talking about a bit more variety so the players can indenfity more with their characters.
    Martin: Something comparable to AION will definitely not be possible in our game. That said, it will be possible to make one’s character a bit birulier, a little more chubby, or more slender. You will definitely be able to create your bald character, I take care of that! Our character creator will be quite extensive. One of the reasons is our art team saying that this is the visual style they want and to that belongs a certain kind of aesthetics. Because of that, you will not be able to create a toothless, one-eyed ragged warrior, because that would not fit into the general aesthetics which our artists aim for. But there will definitely be enough adjustments possible, so you do not have to run around looking like a supermodel.

    Hey guys, i'm planning on buying all the guild wars games to earn some rewards from the Hall of Monuments. But i have no idea where to start or what to do.

    would anyone be able to give me some hints/tips on what to do?

    I've bought all 3 campaigns (Prophecies, Factions, Nightfall) and Eye of the North expansion. You need to have EotN to get access to the Hall of Monuments. This guide on GW1 guru recommends Nightfall as the campaign with the highest overall contribution, so that might be a good place to start. It also gives a load of detail about how to get the different points.

    It's really cheap now though - I managed to get all 4 pieces for £22, so figured I may as well get the lot.

    New preview up on the PC Gamer website. It's the article from the last issue of PC Gamer UK, and it's a pretty good read with some nice screenshots!

    I like this part of the interview:
    Will there be built in statistical means of tracking character progress apart from character level, like overall gear level or damage meters or publicly viewable achievements that show dungeon experience?

    I’m not sure we want to include damage meters or things like that. I think they maybe tend to focus on the wrong things with everybody concerned about min/maxing things. There are lots of things you just can’t measure, like the DPS somebody is doing, are they helping towns players get back up and that sort of thing. We want to avoid DPS meters.

    Another question about the rewards, lets say i get 20/50 points, do i get all the items up to 20 points, or just the 20 point ones?

    ^ you get every item from 1 to 20.

    “We sold around seven million copies of Guild Wars 1,” Mike says, “and have been really successful. You see a lot of people launch as a subscription MMO and discover that it’s really hard to compete with WoW as a second subscription. We’ve seen it time and time again – you get to the end of your 30-day trial period and ‘PSHOOOM’… your playerbase drops through the floor.”
    And there we have it.

    There's some great info on the character customisation in that article.

    Say what you like about Aion, but it's character customisation was superb.
    Second Part of the interview is up!

    http://guildwars.incgamers.com/blog/...terview-part-2

    We are definitely on target for a Closed Beta this year.
    Nice!

    Thanks to John and Eric for taking the time to answer the questions and watch out for more big Guild Wars 2 news on Thursday 19th May.
    I'm guessing this might be the new proffesion reveal since they said it was coming this month. Can't wait!

    I mean, I get it, it's a business decision. Too much shit to do and not enough time, so gank some coding from your Publisher to bolster things along. That's fine and all, just don't say it.
    They are not reusing any code from Aion.

    Aion uses the CryEngine for character customization while Guild Wars uses ArenaNet's own handcrafted engine.

    Even if NCSoft gave them Aion's code they would not be able to do much with it as all the comments and names are in Korean, and it's just generally a mess.

    I would trust ArenaNet on the coding side of things, they know how to do that really well.

    was glad to see this in the recent pc gamer interview

    The final risk ArenaNet are taking is financial. There’s no doubt that they could charge a monthly subscription for Guild Wars 2 – this is as fully featured an MMO as World of Warcraft, Rift or The Old Republic. But they have chosen not to. Instead, ArenaNet are placing all their faith on players enjoying the game so much that they’ll be willing to buy in-game items. And, I speculate, on them buying sidegrade expansion packs such as Guild Wars: Factions or Guild Wars: Prophecies released at a rapid pace.
    hope that shuts up some of the trolls saying it's not an mmo.
    Which of coursem it wont, that's what trolling is about
