    Average being...not worth the buy really? Games get so much hype these days its hard not too get sucked in. I will ride it out awhile, if it seems worth it I will try it. But not for awhile. At least from what you two said anyways.

    The loading times are no problem, unless you consider a 2 second load screen a big issue.

    It has it's good moments, but it doesn't seem to know what kind of game it's trying to be.

    It tries to be an MMORPG, and it tries to be a regular PC RPG. The problem is, it's not as good an MMORPG as WoW, and not as good a PC RPG as games like NWN.

    GW is relying on the PvP aspect more than the standard RPG.
    They call it a CORPG.. competitive online RPG.
    Which is why I don't care for it, I'm not a big PvP person.
    The RPG aspect of it bores the ever living hell out of me

    Did a bit of PvP on it. Killed 7 people before I died with my Monk/Warrior combo.
    Was probably the only bit so far that I've enjoyed though

    Can you do things like fish and craft like in WoW, or is just level and fight more powerful stuff?

    There's no crafting as such.

    You can take resources to certain NPCs and give them some gold to craft an item for you, but that's about it.

    Picked this up yesterday. since alot of my friends who arent mmorpg people ( see fees and run ) are playing.

    Ive been playing warcraft since the release day. And in some aspects i feel guild wars lacking in depth.

    But it is very very easy on the eyes. And when you get together with some friends online for night. Its simply awsome.

    But like vass said, its not WoW and isnt set out to be. But in my mind, im still comparing it to that.

    The fact that it's free is a nice bonus though. If it wasn't free then I wouldn't cancel my WoW account to fund GW.

    Hey Wish, you'll be on the Euro servers right?

    If you want, give me a shout when I'm online. I'm called Tai Cho (my characters are usually called Taicho, but GW makes you have a 1st and 2nd name )
