After a long wait, the MMORPG with a spin on the genre’s tropes with the name Guild Wars 2 has launched. ArenaNet is already experiencing a wealth of success, even prior to the official launch.
Over 1 million people purchased the game before release to take part in the 3-day head start. More so, over 400 thousand players attempted logging in at the same time once the first whistle was blown. This overwhelming success did cripple its servers for a while and some of its trading elements are still plagued with some saturation, but other than that people have been massively enjoying this game already.
Some have been enjoying the new MMO with such fervor that they’ve already attained the level 80 cap even before launch. A player called Surfeuze (picture above) crafted their way to the top through the help of their guild.
In more awesome news, ArenaNet was swift to squash any rumors of unfair bans in the first days of the server launches. Players that used names, slurs or any type of distasteful phrases that might be taken offense to were given a 3-day cooling off period. As always, consumers were quick to express their aggravation, calling unfair treatment in forums. However, in a Reddit thread, the company gave personal answers to any banned player for the world to see. It’s quite amusing; we suggest you look at it, despite harsh language. Note however that there is a fine line where faults have been admitted and other words are borderline offensive. For instance, one player was banned for simply having the word “gay” in their name. People that changed their names were then released prior to their sentence’s end. In a more dire note, hackers have already taken over accounts.
Yours truly is currently running through the MMORPG and it’s enjoyable to say the least. If you’re looking for something new to do with friends, consider this a recommendation.
