Well its working, we're all stressed. Nobody can get in. I got to character selection screen that dropped and now can't get passed log in screen at all. Keep getting restart client and try again message.

Okay, its working now. I have decided to save an orphanage or a hospital, one I don't save will burn down.

And out again. (sigh)

Had fund once I got in.

Over so back to vanquishing Eye of the North.

They're doing it again, stress test Friday, 4pm-8pm Pacific. I'll be working during the whole thing.

The latest blog Arenanet entry simply announces that they won't be using the blog much anymore since the redesign of the official Guild Wars 2 web site (which doesn't even have a link to the blog anymore) but will be posting news on the Guild Wars 2 site instead. The blog will talk more about the original Guild Wars. So I guess, once Guild Wars 2 is up and running more of the staff will return to maintaining and updating Guild Wars 1.

Subscription MMO Model Offers Huge Barrier To Entry

End Game interview part 1 - Youtube video: talks about dungeons and using extra skill points, which you still gain after level 80 to craft Legendary Weapons

End Game interview part 2 - only about 2 minute on "end game", most of this part of the interview is answers to Twitter questions. Big news is that Wintersday and Mad King Thorn will be back. Since GW1 only had human player characters Wintersday was only a human holiday so will be interesting to see what the other four races do for the holiday and how they react to this crazy, undead human king.

The Final Countdown—Guild Wars 2 Launch Times - looks like the counter on the mage page is now correctly counting down to midnight, instead of noon as it had been.

Don't know. It was only an hour and I was working.

This one is four hours.

Over at guildwar2guru fans are all a buzz because Amazon has a 10 second sample of a Guild Wars 2 song with actual lyrics, apparently written by Ree Soesbee, lore and continuity designer most responsible for sylvari lore.

Some of the same fans are also very annoyed that those who have the time and money to attend Gamescom in Germany will have access to a unique in game item not available to most fans.

Guild Wars 2 at Gamescom 2012 = Youtube video

A World of Choice – The Regions of Guild Wars 2

Introducing the Worlds of Guild Wars 2 - North American and European server names


It is now possible to change your Guild Wars 2 account name, it still has to be an email address and changing it changes your contact address as well as log in ID for both Guild Wars 1 and Guild War 2. Just go to account.guildwars2.com.

Some people like me got stuck with an old and no longer active email address as GW account names and didn't like it. Now it can be changed. Note: changing your GW2 password will also change your GW1 password. So if you can't get into GW1, after the changes, this is why.

What we're up against - a screen shot from Guild Wars 1. Near the Charr homeland, the charr believe it to be a mountain. In fact its a sleeping elder dragon, Kralkatorrik.

The little guy who looks like a mummy is my character. The Xunlai Investigator NPC appears to know something about the future because he talks about the coming cataclysm.

The Pale Tree sapling - the young Pale Tree with my ritualist character and Ventari, the centaur who carves the Tablet the Sylvari will revere in 250 years.
