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.
Title: Re: Guild Wars?
Post by: Jack Lupino on May 16, 2005, 06:20:28 pm
Told ya it was around 50...

Its STILL MORE MONEY than nothing .. as they claimed.
Title: Re: Guild Wars?
Post by: Turtle on May 16, 2005, 08:53:42 pm
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*
Title: Re: Guild Wars?
Post by: Jack Lupino on May 16, 2005, 09:28:27 pm
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 ?
Title: Re: Guild Wars?
Post by: Outboundlight on May 16, 2005, 09:41:32 pm
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.

Oh, in my rush to head off to Naniamo to pick up my new suit I forgot to mention:

All those other monthly fee games also end up releasing expansion packs that you have to buy on top of that monthly fee. On top of that, expansions generally add way more new content and things than patches do.

are you still talking about Guild Wars?

.... yay?

ok  :)

i'm playing GW right now, the game is well made, pretty beautiful, and really fun ( that's my opinion ::) ). i've tried World of Warcraft before Guild wars and the main factor that made me choose GW is this thing about money  that Rad is talking about.
   There's no hesitation, to play WoW (60€ at shop here in france) you have to pay all months, (don't mind the price) if you don't pay, you only have your WoW CD installation  and your eyes to cry.  Guild Wars (50€ at shop right now) don't claim monthly payement, so if you don't buy the extention, you can still play. there's a limit, for sure, but every game has one. The addon method for guild Wars life time is here to replace the non-month-payement.
   And think about all these little boys (and girls?) that can't play at MMORPG cause their parents don't want to pay things by internet. Guild Wars takes a lot of new buyers like that. =)
   
   Anyway, I play the game, I'm getting fun with a lot of friends, that's all. =)

Talk to ankle, hes teh head of our guild though I think I'm the only european officer so maybe whisper me in game - player name = Athel Morningstar.

P.S: to Ankle/Turtle: I know I havent been on much the last wee while but I've had exams and I just got the whole series of Firefly on DVD :P
Title: Re: Guild Wars?
Post by: Turtle on May 24, 2005, 09:10:07 am
I haven't been on much over the last couple weeks.  Finals are starting/finishing this week so by the weekend I should have some time to start playing again :D
My current character is just past Yak's Bend at the moment, ready to start the next mission.  If anyone wants to cruise through the next few missions with me some time, let me know.
Title: Re: Guild Wars?

Yeah I'm up there now but its tough going, need to switch out some skills and see if i cant make old Athel more effective

Title: Re: Guild Wars?
Post by: chompy on May 26, 2005, 03:52:15 am
Yea I too am heavy in study and should be for the next month. I didn't mind doing the small quests originally becuase they only took like 5 mins to complete. But at about 30 mins per quest is too much.

Title: Re: Guild Wars?
Post by: Turtle on May 26, 2005, 09:03:00 am
Starting thursday probably I'll have lots of time to play.  I'm at the first mission after Yak's Bend, the one where you light the torches.  If anyone still needs to do that one, let me know.

Yes, I hit lvl20 awhile back. I have a new tactic that seems to be working fairly well on my first attempt. Going to try having a tank with sprint do it next time. They run past one group and through another and the other teams kill each other and we sneak past and kill the priests :D
