Arrow Official Guild Wars Thread

So, who's getting Guild Wars? I noticed the demo box allows you a 24 hour advance on playing the game. The free online gameplay has me hooked enough to try it out. I hate the idea of monthly fees for a game.

My cowoker who is heavy into MMORPG and computer RPG's(he always ends up with the best character combo in the shortest amount of time, with the best equipment,etc) told me that the made it alot more interesting than the initial first public demo... In fact, oroginally, he did not like the intial first public demo at all, but now he is sold on Guild Wars with all the extra content and stuff it has in it, that he's going to pick up a copy..

so I'm gonna wait till he gets it, and then I'll get it depending onw hwat he says.

I think there is a VERY good chance of me picking it up, assuming it goes on sale for $30-35

I might try it for fun...but I am not big into MMORPG that dont charge a monthly fee...just means be a bunch of kids..and worst kinds who dont care what kind of rep they get kind of like diablo crowd. Also how does that profit model work? How are they able to make money yet still be able to produce content, fix bugs and have a stable platform?

Well considering that its NOT A MMORPG, there is not profit model, It's a Diablo type game with no SP, only MP. The world is not unlimited and the amount of players limited to the world is limited aswell to around 24 (think it might be 32 but I dout it).

They plan to support the game through expansions just like Diablo did and hopefully more constant patches then Diablo (those long waits are what killed D2 for me).

Anyway, I always need a hack and slash game to play when I don't really want to think.
