Tomorrow is the beginning of the first GW2 beta weekend event for pre-purchasers, and the first where we’ll be able to play and bring you all sorts of information without a NDA in the way.Â We have lots of plans for the weekend.
Back by popular demand, I will be recording extensive video over the weekend to deliver commentary on various aspects of the game.Â Several of you expressed interest in videos because that’s either how you found our blog in the first place, or you simply enjoy seeing a video while listening to me ramble on.Â I’ll post them throughout the weekend.
We’ll also be streaming over at our Keen and Graev Twitch.tv channel!Â Â I’ll take requests for classes to see, abilities to use, places to go, food to eat, songs to sing, you name it.Â I’ll provide insights into the GW2 experience while I play.Â I’ll leave it on all weekend, so feel free to watch and chat with me if you haven’t procured yourself a spot in the beta.
The Keen and Graev Community will have a guild on the Sorrow’s Furnace server.Â We plan to reassess our server choice periodically during the events, and definitely make sure we choose the right server at launch.Â Our reason for choosing Sorrow’s Furnace was to get on-board with solid PvPers and find a world anxious to win lots of WvW — we hear that’s where a solid portion of the ex-DAOC community will play.Â We love the feature that allows players to belong to multiple guilds because it reduces the stress of choosing between your friends.Â We also love the lack of raid progression or reason to feel forced into guilds.Â It’s long past due for guilds to return as a social unit, rather than a necessity for progression.
We hope to see you here for lots of GW2 content, and playing with us on Sorrow’s Furnace.
