News

Bytes- BWE this Friday through Sunday. Email blast went out on Monday reminding people that the only guaranteed way to beta is to pre-purchase. (I suspect it went out to all emails registered for beta prior to prepurchase). Anet blog about then joining Pinterest to show off fan art and cosplay stuff. Previous beta players able to start download of beta client in morning. Emails out this afternoon. (via r/GuildWars2 and GWI)

Distraction from 502 beta client error

GBTV offers 5 reasons to be excited for the beta weekend.

Open source interface in guild wars 2 similar to guild wars 1?

Dialog Cutscenes? Will this add or detach from personal story, perhaps… odd when compared to the dynamic event system involving everyone nearby?

http://gw2.luna-atra.fr/skills_tool/ – updated luna link, more indepth info for character customization (help streamline players into the content during beta instead of wasting the weekend reading skills, traits and the like)

You mean we can’t faceroll pvp?! – The introduction of “squad/swat team” management in Gw2 WvWvW PvP. And it even functions in Dynamic events?!

Daves Raves – Idiots
http://www.nowgamer.com/mmo-worlds/1329987/guild_wars_2_open_beta_weekend_what_to_expect.html Everything is right… apart from everything! (not really, but they say it’s the last beta event before gw2 launches, either they know something we don’t, or anet lied to us about this not being the last beta event)

Discussion Topic

What was your least favorite Guild Wars story arc/campaign story?

@moosesfaces –  I actually loved all the stories. I hated certain missions though just b/c they were hard. Last 2 in NF come to mind.

Listener Feedback

Beta Plans
