    elzedor i take my hat off too you. you managed too get a life, and then put it before computer games. you are a rareity in this world of nerds and power geeks (you know who you are, people). i too got a life once, but sacrificed it for games.

    I lost my life a few years ago, it left after I became enthralled by computers. I'm not saying all those who love computers/ games have no life, just some, including me.

    Ive played Guild Wars and its a great game. There is no monthly fee that has to be payed so it makes the game even better.

    IMO GW isnt all that great, its no open pvp, but that's what I'm into. I can't stand the carebear games really. If you can bare the 15 dollars a month play one of those games, they usually cost because they are the better games. Try WoW or L2, something like that.

    exactly how i feel man..... NO OPEN PVP T.T and I don't give a rat azz about balance, you pit 40 lvl 20 players in and let em rumble it out till the last man standing. Screw RA it get boring fast with dumb random teammates. Screw TA its for guild testing their build, and you will be crush if you join a pug against a guild team. Screw GvG it took to long to form the perfect group (even through I been to one, i have my best moment crushing my opponent guild to oblivion.

    To be honest I enjoy the first game (prophecy) and i get to played all the builds. good time, now GW is trashed and forgotten. Its to pveish (every expansions they released) and people.. don't be foool-- GW isn't free. Each expansion cost $60 bucks for every 6 months, thats $10 a month for a pve game IMHO.

    thats why i never brought any of it expansions, now i hear A.net stop making expansion GW after GW: EN and plans on making GW 2 instead.

    I wonder why?

    this feel good just typing what i feel about GW, sry if i went offtopic or posting on some 1 bump on a 3 yr old thread ^^v

    Please explain yourself more clearly. I don't understand what you're asking.

    If you like mindless PvP then yes Guildwars isnt for you. Open PvP lol. You cant expect to beat people who actually form a good team, which has a team build. With a PuG. I have over 2.5k Hours logged atm. Im actually taking a break from it. but I can tell you Ive gotten my moneys worth from both aspects of the game. a Con from my point of view is that you need to get all 4 campaigns+expansions to be Pro.

    Sorry to mods but I wanted to say something on behalf of Guildwars.

    i played the game for 3+ years if you include the beta's.

    overall it was an outstanding game pvp based, its not hack and slash pvp like some other games.

    guild vs guild battles are an on-going science. you can make a great build for it one week, and it will get toasted the next.

    i lost alot of interest in guildwars after reading up on guildwars 2. thought to myself "whats the point of playing this game for another year when the next will be out soon enough"

    but overall, it was a great game, but the most fun i had is before factions was launched.

    Guild Wars is an excellent MMO IMO. The smartest thing they did with GW was not making you pay monthly fees. That was a big turn on for me. If you haven't played it yet, I would suggest you pick yourself up a copy.
