Default Re: Guild Wars on Satelite Internet

It was me that was going to play GW. I tried it out and it's fairly laggy, especially in heavily populated places. You'll see your character "teleport" around a bit and conversations will have a 1 sec lag or so. When you enter the instanced areas, the lag is not as bad, unless you're in a group with other players. If your group is all hirelings, the lag isn't too bad. If you PVP, it won't work for you as you'll always be a second behind and that's usually too late for PVP.

If you're spoiled by DSL or cable, be prepared to be frustrated. If you're coming from dial-up, you'll be pleased.

Make sure you read through the forums that evilghost and I linked to. The FAQ is awesome and will answer most of your questions.
