#1 Edited by shinboy630 (1141 posts) -

Since it's worked for other games on the forums, and even though it is only in beta I love taking screenshots, I figured I would create an officially unofficial Guild Wars 2 screenshot thread. Incredibly beautiful or incredibly dumb, post them all! I'll start it off.

And I thought I played a lot during the 2 beta weekends...
I love you, chicken

From the first BWE. That expression gets me every time.
Some genius decided that this is a perfect place for an arrow cart

The only screen I took. The only worth while screen in my opinion.

@RobbieMac: Lincoln Force is truly that a force in WvW, that's what I like to see!

#7 Posted by Benny (1953 posts) -

@Subjugation: I love the WvW load screen. Reminds me of game of thrones.

#8 Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam (3309 posts) -

@Subjugation: That first screen makes it look like your character's name is, appropriately enough, Reinforced Wall.

#9 Posted by Subjugation (4720 posts) -

@Dark_Lord_Spam: Hahaha! I didn't even catch that but it gave me a good laugh now. I mean ... I totally meant to do that.

@Subjugation:

Please tell me you jumped off from there after.

Disappointed in the look of the game, specifically the workflow the 3D artists have used (randomly mapped textures and needlessly high poly assets), to the rendering passes that they used (looks flat, no depth, HBAO or cheap SSAO could have helped, rim lighting and fresnel on shaders). It's a shame since they have some of the best concept artists in the industry. 

#12 Posted by shinboy630 (1141 posts) -

@warxsnake: Maybe that is why they are hiring 3D artists. But that aside, I really like the look that the game has.

Some stuff from BWE2. Going through my screenshots isnt helping with my withdrawal.

Just another lvl80 giant evil scorpion boss.
FUCK SPIDERS!

Man I'm lovin all these photos, the game is so beautiful and emotive. These are just me having old school WoW style fun and seeing what buildings I can glitch up to the top of.

I would love to share this screenshot.

I didn't get around to take screenshots during BWE2. I was too busy playing the game. But I just stumbled over this timelapse video of GW2 environments from BWE2. Quite stunning... have a look!

Prolly just checked the GW2 twitter feed for BWE3 details (which aren't to be found anywhere yet), where the vid was linked.

@CommodoreGroovy: I can't help but point out...

THAT SCREEN SHOT IS 4:3!

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT

@selfconfessedcynic: Brings back memories, right? I remember my old CRT that would punch through the floor if I dropped it. Good times ... good times ...

@roninenix: That is one hell of a cooldown on that 5 skill. What skill is that?

#26 Posted by roninenix (120 posts) -

@shinboy630: Cannon attack with the pirate costume set. It's just for show lol

Higher resolutions were wonky with some graphics cards.

Anyway, that Greg Oden is such a badass. 8-)

@CommodoreGroovy:

Where did you get the shades? I think I asked in-game but I forgot the answer. I need to make a Neo (from the Matrix) look-alike character lol.

#28 Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam (3309 posts) -

@UssjTrunks: The shades could be purchased in the Trading Post with gems. There were four or five different pairs of glasses, I think.

What they said. I would gladly sacrifice a drop in resolution for 15 fps. =p

Pretty cool picture of an elementalist I made in the first beta. How many pictures can I post without being annoying? I have some pretty nice pictures!

Go crazy, man! The more the better.

#32 Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam (3309 posts) -

@Askherserenity: I've seen some posts with like twenty, so you should be good. If it gets too out of hand, just put them behind a spoiler warning.

#33 Posted by Maystack (906 posts) -
Zerg's aren't just limited to WvW...

Couple of shots from the short time I played in the final event of the stress test.

Ascalon Catacombs with some LF guildies during the stress test
Yay! We did it!
Things didn't go as well in explorable mode.

EDIT: The first image wasn't letting me zoom for some reason. Should be fixed now.

#35 Posted by Subjugation (4720 posts) -

@shinboy630: Haha, you caught me tea bagging the last boss.

Spoiler block "for to make for easier scroll experience"

Awesome necro armor I saw in the mists.
Ascalonian Catacombs

Imma branded!
When the branded have nightmares, they dream of me.

Cool mask bro.
Checkerboard texture because "hey beta"
#36 Edited by UssjTrunks (534 posts) -

That branded armour should be obtainable. Looks awesome.

#37 Edited by shinboy630 (1141 posts) -

@Subjugation: Man I forgot to post the one with the checkerboard texture! I'm glad someone did though.

Also, one last one from the stress test.

doesn't like structuer PvP 'cause he's bad at it. I, for one, had lots of fun.

#38 Posted by No0b0rAmA (1490 posts) -

@shinboy630: Do you have the screenshot where it shows @selfconfessedcynic being completely useless in PvP?

#39 Posted by shinboy630 (1141 posts) -

@No0b0rAmA: sadly no cause structured PvP is region locked, but I heard he's a real scrub :P

#40 Edited by UssjTrunks (534 posts) -

@shinboy630: Loser, I got 195 today, but no pic, so it didn't really happen. :(

#41 Posted by No0b0rAmA (1490 posts) -

OH YEAH RAINBOW ARMOR

#42 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2562 posts) -

@UssjTrunks: Nice work. I think the highest I have gotten was 185 (no pics here either). I've never gotten more than 2 or so kills though - I focus on sneaking and point capturing. ie, as it were a mini WvW.

@No0b0rAmA and @Shinboy630 I don't like this "cynic is bad at PvP" meme : /

Well if you don't like it, maybe you shouldn't be so bad!

#44 Edited by Giefcookie (603 posts) -

Some stress test stuff:

Dragons! Well its actually just one.

The first pictures that are in this thread...

...that interface is sexy as fucking hell. It's so...minimal... I can see the GAME!

THAT alone gets me more excited for Guild Wars 2 than anything, even though GW2 itself gets me excited.

Hey Guys, I can't see anything but I'm mashing buttons.
Oh Geez, I think I might be going blind.
The Dark Side has a killer benefit plan.

How are you guys taking screenshots? I've been taking screenshots with Steam but since I have to hit the F12 key the "Do you want to quit the game?" thing pops up in a majority of my screenshots. Man, I miss my character Snow Spot again. I can't wait for the next BWE.

Also, someone sent me chili through the mail. I have no idea what that was about.

#49 Posted by Maystack (906 posts) -

@insane_shadowblade85: Prnt screen saves it to your documents. Shift + prnt scrn is defaulted to take one with no UI. There's also the ability for high res shots, which isn't set to anything at default.

Awesome, thanks =)
