My name is

"Chompy Chomprock"
Level 9 - Ranger / Monk
I'll shoot you with my bow then SMITE you with my powers of the smiteness

I've got a guild called Ninja Death Bunnies or something or-rather. Will more then happy to party with any of the forumers, although I'm not too sure how the international districts work as I'm on the American one and I'm sure that the majority of the current forumers would have choosen to play on the European server. International districts seem to get over this hump.

DONT FUCKING BUY GUILDWARS !!

Its a fucking scam !!

Look :

They tell you shit like "You dont have to pay subscription money an' shit"
BUT !!
Once on 3 months a update pack comes out .. you buy them in ur local gamestore for 50(!!) bucks.
So thats ehh.. a LOT of money a month and you need it to play the game ...

fuck that.

Expansions are more like ~$20-40 CAD.
Lets see... $12.99usd a month, after three months that is: $38.97 USD. So $50.46 CAD for subscriptions during that time.

Actually, it's not like they are deceiving about it.  I remember them saying in an FAQ, when asked how they will keep servers open without charging a monthly fee, that they will be selling optional expansion packs.

Personally I favor expansion packs over monthly fees.  It gives the developers more incentive to keep working on stuff good enough to make people dish out more cash.  When they know that they will be getting paid no matter what, things tend to take a lot longer to get done *cough*battlegrounds*cough*

yeah.. but they can do shit like

"Ooooo the elven - nobody uses this- item is made a bit more turqouise."

PAY UP SUCKA


in all seriousness it WILL come to that.

You see, you keep adding and adding stuff but the game runs too shit
you keep fixing bugs *TILL THERE ARE NONE LEFT


And then .. they cant do service packs anymore.

So eventually its free ?

uhh they fix bugs for free.  check the updates theyve done so far

http://www.guildwars.com/news/gameupdates.html

not the mention you dont have to download any of that stuff seperately it just happens while you play because of their nifty straming.

Expansion packs will be new areas and quests and items and PvP arenas and what not I assume.

its kind of obvious that you havent done a great deal of reading around Guild Wars before you mouthed it off.
