Exciting week

Hey all,

Last week I promised you’d get your first glimpse of Guild Wars 2 “very soon now”. That day is almost here.

I want to thank all our fans for their patience as we developed the game to the point where we can start talking about it publically. I know you’ve all been anxiously awaiting this moment. You’ll soon understand how ambitious we’ve been and what we’ve accomplished during these past two years of development. We still have a lot of work ahead of us, but from here on out we’ll be able to provide you with more regular updates.

Guild Wars 2 is going to be a huge leap beyond the original. We have the best team in the industry executing at the top of their game, and I’m very proud of what our team has accomplished so far. As I said last week, I’m confident that when you get your first look at what we’ve been working on, you’re going to love what you see. Stay tuned for an exciting week ahead.

--Mike O'Brien 20:31, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Sounds awesome, thanks for the update :) I suppose the rumors about a GW2 trailer at GamesCom are true after all.. Oh btw. looks promising as well :) poke | talk 20:40, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Exciting week, eh? Is PAX this week? Now that we might get some info on GW2, could you guys start being a little more open about GW1 as well?
PAX is in two weeks. I guess it's finally time for me to keep my eyes peeled. — Jon User Jon Lupen Sig Image.png Lupen 20:54, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Excellent news!!!Baz 20:59, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Ahmm gittin all tinglah... just one minor quibble: "We have the best team in the industry" you don't b/c Linsey's not on it full time. --ilrUser ilr deprav.png 21:09, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
is supposed to show anything besides that dragon thing? --Cursed Angel Q.Q 21:14, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
I don't believe so, it's more of a placeholder to tantalize us so far. Henry of Navarre 21:24, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
MIKE IS THE MOST AWESOME GUY EVER, CHECK OUT THE FAN CLUB HERE - Wuhy User Wuhy sig.jpg 21:16, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

Oh god I almost crapped my pants. At first I was like: <___< no way, but then I was like O___O . I still can't believe this is happening. Mike, you're the BEST! --SirSausage 21:21, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

@All: I have it from Regina that the Guild Wars 2 website does not do anything besides the intro animations for now. — Jon User Jon Lupen Sig Image.png Lupen 21:25, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Oshit, Gamescom is this week isn't it? Didn't someone say ANet would be there? Man....I'm so happy to hear news.....I just really hope that GW1 doesn't get treated like a red-headed step-child from now on. I'm with the anon earlier who hopes GW1 can be more open now too. Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 21:25, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, the GamesCom is this week, but only Martin Kerstein will be there. NCSoft will have a stand about Aion there, but there were rumors about a Guild Wars 2 Trailer for GamesCom before, so I guess they will show it in between. poke | talk 21:30, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Well....they could have lied about it, I guess, to keep it a secret. It's not above them to do, but you're probably right. Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 21:33, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
I knew there had to be a reason for me to visit gamecon this year. Köln-messe keep your fridge full cus here i come ! Saga [DOJO] 16:34, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Dang, wish they would make the rest of the site available to day. Would give me something to do tonight! Really like the Dragon Flash animation, even made it my desktop!!!Imageshack Screenshot--TroyVoy88 21:39, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. 22:14, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
When I heard the title "Exciting week" i thought there was something to get excited about.... why is everyone crapping their pants over a flash animation? --adrin User Adrin mysig.jpg 22:32, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Dude, it's a dragon! And Guild Wars! And 2! --Arduin talk 22:35, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
The week is just beginning. It's a teaser, like some other big companies do right before revealing a new product. I'm happy with the incoming news (although I think it's a bit too soon). Erasculio 22:35, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
(Edit conflict) x2 Because it's a flash animation more than they've had for almost a year? -- Wyn User Wynthyst sig icon2.png talk 22:35, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Yes, because it's a flash animation. it's nothing for ppl to flip out over. --adrin User Adrin mysig.jpg 22:41, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

You can go url fishing on that site, taking gw1 site as template :) 06:54, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Mike's message was more about what's to come, not what we've already got. From what I can gather, by reading the message, we'll be getting some news this week, specifically a glimpse of Guild Wars 2. --User Pling sig.png Brains12 \ talk 23:04, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Finally some good news. Anticipating whatever we'll be getting~ User Karuro Icon.png Karuro 23:19, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
Are you able to tell us exactly when and where this new wave of information, eye candy, etc. will be released, so the hardcore fans won't die of starvation from sitting at their computer pressing F5 on ten different GW-related sites? :P calor (talk) 00:11, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Thanks Mike! Looks like my [F5] will be fading away! :P --Nekki 01:27, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Thank YOU finally some info on GW 2!!! thank YOU

2) Set the Dragon2 as your desktop
3) Brace for impact
Bonus) Ban these killjoy idiots from the GW2 servers? --

There's also a Twitter feed for GW2, and a facebook page for the game now. Erasculio 03:24, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
I have this page as well as the twitter bookmarked. And I have set to homepage. Let's do this! The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk • contribs) at 05:05, 18 August 2009 (UTC).

Now - i can't sleep becouse of GW2 --GrethortUser Gret Chii.jpg 11:02, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
"Sleep"? what's a "sleep"? I think cause of GW2, my vocabulary got shortened... I feel "sleep" is something I should be doing...right? Does it have something to do with GW2? Hey ANet! Give me my "sleep" back! oh well... back to working on my HOM and [F5]'ing this page :P --Nekki 12:06, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
FINALLY!!! *toink toink toink* Anticipation of A trailer or something is Killing me!!! --Silverleaf Special:Contributions/SilverleafDon't assume, Ask! 17:57, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Guildwars 2 on Facebook has put concept art on, u can find it here [1] Saga [DOJO] 18:14, 18 August 2009 (UTC)18:13, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Right, but do we know that the owner of that page is someone affiliated with ArenaNet?-- Shew talk 18:15, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, try this link instead [2]Saga [DOJO] 18:34, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

TRAILER?!!-- Shew talk 18:41, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

CITED FROM THE YOUTUBE COMMENTS AND COMMENTS ON DANIEL DOCIU'S CONCEPT ART POSTED ON FACEBOOK: The latest youtube clip has a voice that says "Tyria" and then says (supposedly) "The dragons have always been here" in German.

"Tyria..die Drachen waren schon immer hier" so the translation is correct. Saga [DOJO] 19:04, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Full trailer coming soon to a Germany near you! Hopefully they put up translated versions :( 19:10, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Doesn't sound like "Drachen" (dragons) to me.. It's more like "Die Garten waren schon immer hier" (The gardens...) - Maybe Sylvari gardens? Can't wait for seeing the movie live! poke | talk 19:13, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
I think whoever she is really does say Drachen so my vote goes for dragons. --Шзвч [TALK] @ 19:22, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
It's good to see even something after these two years :D If you don't count that concept art. - J.P.ContributionsTalk 19:25, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

I can't seem to get that youtube video to work, what's it showing? Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 19:44, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Mike O'Brien (i think) standing somewhere, presumably at a game convention in Germany, he says "we're here testing some things". Then you hear what seems to be a trailer begin to play. A voice says (roughly) "Tyria... The dragons(?) have always been here." And then Mike O'Brien says "The rest is a secret." --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).
I think it's Martin, but that's awesome! Karate User Karate Jesus KJ for sig.png Jesus 19:54, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
It definitely Martin Kerstein Saga [DOJO] 20:35, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, I for one am glad that they're unveiling little bits this way instead of just a "look at what we're doing" on the main page. It's gonna be a long time before we actually get into the game so hopefully they continue making it a fun and suspenseful ride. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).
Well, after Summer they must start hooking people back, or they may get distracted with other stuff, XD MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 23:57, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

It's nice to see you have confidence in the game, registering ahead in time :-) However I urge you to register as well, this game is gonna live on for a LONG LONG time, and you wouldn't want some gold digger to own it haha. --Lexxor 15:18, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

EDIT: nvrmnd

NOTICE GAMESCON IS THIS WEEK IN GERMANY. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

They can always make "" into their main site with "" being just a promotion thing then it doesn't matter if some one does register guildwars4,5,6,7 and 42, still, if gw2 will live for at least as long as gw1 and if gw3 will do the same, then the "gold digger" that did register "" will have to wait some 10+ years for a payout maybe more, paying something of 300$ upfront and not knowing if ANet just wont take over the .com domain on grounds of a copyright violation.

Corrupted Orr

Damn it Livia what have you done to my beautiful city?? -- Dwayna --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

Dwayna??? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

I am raving mad. First Vizier Khilbron comes along and sinks it, and now Livia has to go and corrupt it. Don't you humans ever learn? Thanks for all your help, newbs. -- Dwayna --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

): sorry --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

Livia did that to Orr whoa --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).
Pick your poison: Who's fault was it for waking up Primordus? -- Dwayna --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

I guess its was the humans fault because we killed his General the Great Destroyer. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User: (talk).

Ok people, let's not spam Mike O'Brien's page with incorherent thoughts. I'll clear things up for you, Livia didn't do anything (to our knowledge). It was the Undead Dragon (nicknamed "Malchor" by the player community) which rose Orr from underwater. Also, Primordus (again, to our knowledge) woke up on his own. If we didn't kill the Great Destroyer, then he would have woken up during the time of Eye of the North, or just after. Also, Mr. - stop attempting to mascerade as in-game characters, first Nicholas, now Dwayna... will you ever give up? -- Azazel the Assassin/talk 20:03, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
