Awesome / Guild Wars

  • And if not the experiment itself, how about the fact that it succeeded? ArenaNet showed the industry that they don't need to rake in millions of dollars each month in subscriptions to produce a professional, challenging, and well-maintained online game... let alone invest in programming the Even Better Sequel.
  • How Arena Net bans trolls. Catharsis Factor for the win!
  • OK, They've released the sequel. They obviously will close down the servers for Guild Wars. ArenaNet went on record as stating that the server-side requirements for Guild Wars, as well as the hands-on maintenance, are so miniscule that short of a genuine emergency, ArenaNet can leave the game running perpetually on a single server in a back room effectively until it's sequel is closed down, by which time there will be largely no point to keeping either of them up.
