If I buy GW2 from the Green Man Gaming prepurchase will I get the beta registration code right away? And will the game be tied to my Anet account when it comes out so I can redl the client forever like I could with GW1 and not use GMG shit?

I don't think GMG is doing pre purchase. Pretty sure Anets only allowing certain retailers to offer it.
 
I thought my almost 1200 hours was way too many. Dammmn. Really the only portion of the game I never really got into was guild vs guild and that endgame nightfall stuff.
 
Over 83 months, which is a little less than 7 years. So for almost one-seventh of the time since account creation was s/he logged in at the very least. I don't think I've spent a seventh of my time on anything besides sleeping.

I wonder if there are any ten thousand hour play time folks out there.

I have a mate in my guild who's clocked in at 11k.

If Koreans still played today then there numbers would be quite something.

Also the guy who claimed the first r15 used to average 8 hours a day or something ridiculous, so yeah there are quite a few out there I imagine.
 
Trying to get into GW1 but the game is so laggy for us Australians. :( I'm getting constant ~350ms.
That ping you see isn't indicative of your actual ping. I get 150-200 and I'm 2 states away from the servers and I don't have any latency issues when at that point you'd start to see a 1-1.5 sec delay in other games.

It's not uncommon to get rubberbanding even in instanced zones. I would be walking through a field and suddenly about 5 mobs appear on me and kill me.
 
Hey guys, quick question...

I preordered the game about a week ago and haven't received any news from them... Nothing.

Is that normal.. ? Will we hear from them closer to the public beta only...?
 
My goodness, seeing all these "time played" shots is bringing back bad memories. I guess it's the one fear I do have of returning to an MMO. I definitely do have an addictive personality, and when I played WoW, I really fell apart.

I know GW2 is doing a lot of things to avoid the need of feeling like it's a constant race and the need to always play, so that is a good thing, but ugh, when I think of all the time I spent playing WoW, man it makes my brain hurt :( I guess it's easy to justify it by saying well I'd just be spending the same time playing other games, and that may be true, but it's the addiction factor that worries me, but I think it won't be as such a major issue with GW2, given how things are structured much differently.

I'm not sure, but Jira might not be understanding you...

Did you get a key, register your account, etc?

Did you prepurchase or just preorder?

The beta weekend starts a week from today.
 
I meant using which credentials. I don't remember entering any when I purchased the game...

If I did, I forgot them :)

Hopefully there's a way to recover them...
Oh, yeah sorry I wasn't too sure what you were referring to. That's odd that you didn't create an account. Did you get an email from ANet saying thanks for registering or anything? Where did you get the game and did you pre-order or pre-purchase?
 
Yep sorry guys, I did pre-order, create an account and enter the key.

My bad, sorry for the confusion.

Thanks to 1Password, I was able to remember what my credentials were :)

Next week can't come soon enough !
