    I'm such a huge fan of this game. I now own all the expansions and am really into playing it.

    I had a small guild and now everyone's left so I was looking to see if there's anyone out there still playing it.

    I can't stand the loot system.  Don't really play anymore.

    I was really into Nightfall for a bit but I burnt out pretty quickly.  I've wanted to hop back on but I always find it hard to start up an MMO again after not playing for months.

    I have all of the chapters, but I stopped playing because the game is too slow-paced for me. I regret buying the games. Is it possible to sell them? I'm not sure because of the registration number tied to my account.

    Quite a nice game, though it isn't really my type.  I prefer playing with multiple people and it's just tough to find groups.  PvP isn't that fun for me, either - everyone uses the same set of skills and nobody has an original build.  I suppose if you bought a campaign with some of your friends and all sat down to play together, it'd be a blast, but I didn't do that.

    I own all the expansions and such as well, but honestly i think most GW players are bored and would just like to see GW2 released.

    I was really into the PvP-gaming back when I played. I actually never played a campaign through, always found PvP alot more entertaining. At least if you stayed far away from Heroes ascent, and had a good guild to play with. We never played twice with the same build, always switching  out, trying new combinations.

    Ah, good times...

    its an awsome game! i actually prefer this over WoW.... the graphics are just superb really i love how it looks, how it plays... i think the character creation stuff is of very high quality, Im a big eve-online player so i really dont get much chance to play this game much, but its easierly one of the best MMO's going by far. I would definitely would suggest it to anyone who likes MMOs, AND ITS FREE!! no monthly subscriptions.... how kool is that?

    I started GW as my first MMORPG before getting onto WoW. Having played both games, I must say that they both have their strengths and weaknesses. I like that GW is more about strategy in gameplay rather than gear, since even the epic gear one can get from endless grinding, really isn't any better than the endgame gear that any other player can get. With a limited number of skills one can bring into a fight, the real test is which skills one should choose and how best to make use of these skills in complement with your party. However, WoW, being subscription based, really rewards players who diligently spend time grinding/ raiding to get better and better gear. It can be pretty satisfying once you finally get the gear and seeing how much more powerful you become, so you feel that the grinding/ raiding is all 'worth it'.

    Well awesome. If there's anyone interested in getting together for some serious gaming, let me know.

    I have a Guild, Cape, and a Hall. It's just me and a few inactive members.

    Let me know for sure if you want to join, i'll send invites to join the guild.

    Played it since the start pretty much, still love it.  I'm only into the pvp  (GvG not tombs or whatever they call it now).  It is a bummer that the American Gvg scene is pretty empty most of the time even though America has the two of the best Guilds, but when you do get a good match it is a blast to play.

    I really liked the game for many years, I've got thousands of hours logged on it. The only problem is that the game turns stale very quickly...sometimes you just feel that you're doing things for no reason. This is especially apparent after you hit lvl 20, unless you're into pvp, you're basically just grinding for cool loot. The only things that kept me playing were the upcoming releases, and now that I know it's over and the next thing is Guild Wars 2, I've basically lost any motive to play. Hopefully Guild Wars 2 turns out good.

    Well I'm STILL trying to finish the story, hard to find good team-mates to complete the missions. I'm almost there. Then I want to move on to Eye of the North and do quests and dungeons.

    That's the thing about GW... because it's not subscription based, there's no incentive for the developers to want to keep people playing and clogging up the servers. Want new content? You need to pay to buy the expansion.

    I heard that GW2 would have a consistent world, and *gasp* no subscription again. I hope it doesn't end up as terrible as all the other 'free' MMOs out there.

    Got back in to it, tis great. And as for the geezer that says it full of rude people...lulwut? Never in my 37 months of playing have I ever come across anyone flaming or having a go at someone for not having the appropriate level or skills. PUGs are crap in all games- so I can't really fauly you there. Should just play in a Guild or with people you know.

    I don't play so much now, but put thousands of hours into the game. After doing pretty much all there is to do in the game multiple times over, it just got a little stale. I also don't like the whole PVE skills have different effects from PVP skills change.

     I'm still in one of the biggest and past "Guild of the Week" guilds though and pop on now and again.

    I will certainly give GW2 a good play though on it's release.

    Meh, I couldn't really get into it... I tried, played it for 35 hours, got to lvl 16 or 18, but I dunno, just didn't seem like there was alot to do at end game from what I've read... I really don't like how all gear has the same stats, and so the only point to PvE'ing to get new gear is for looks... I don't like that too much.  I also made a lvl 20 pvp character, but I dunno, I went back to WoW pretty quickly.

    Wow, that game was like crack for me, I played it constantly for like 2-3 years, have all the expansion, but I haven't finished EOTN yet. Haven't played it for almost a year now though... just got boring, and friends stop playing, guild fell apart, bla bla.
