    I have updated the initial post again after the feedback I got from you and a few more days of thinking about the text.
    I also added some links to the official wiki for newbies and I think one or two pictures would help to make it more easy on the eye (but that is up to Rush if we will be able to incorporate pictures in the blog).

    PS: The "draft blog" is up on the new guildwars.incgamers.com front end. Thanks to all adding to its creation here & in-game.

    I haven't gotten any pages on that, so It looks like I'm not going. oh well. Guess my style is to offball and negative at times to be useful. I deal. I'll just keep posting stuff here and not care who reads.

    Noa, perhaps things I'll describe in my "waiting game blog" will provide some advice for you and those who have done "everything there is" in GW.
    Perhaps I succeed in keeping my spirit alive until GW2, perhaps not. This is something I want to write on my blog as a GW-Blogger, once Rush has the new site up (and like Akirai most likely will focus on PvP and Alaris on current events and perhaps builds)

    PS: The OP is a "draft" version of the initial Blog opener for the new site, so we can find our own niche to write about and get some feedback. Any comments are still welcome and will help me modify the stuff I write about.

    Okay. sorry for the rant, but seriously, how many times can we keep replaying the same game over and over again?
    I will admit I like going through NF again with charas that are well established, but that I just bought NF for the account.
    The thing is, it seems all we have to shoot for are titles and the upper end stuff that seems out of the reach of at least 2/3rds of the players.
    I can solo FoW, though it takes hours,
    I can go with a group and get most if not almost all of UW done, (but dhumm still kicks our butts),
    urgoz is very doable with the right group, never done deep,
    and tried a couple times to do DoA, fail each and every time.
    Slavers exile is gimmick city at best.

    So our other options are to wait for special events,
    farm for nick stuff, maybe bother to run mules through stuff so they're not stuck in just the main trading citys.
    The only other thing is, the game has essentially turned into a graphic chat room with stuff to do here and there.

    I'm definitely moving on to GW2, I'm not leaving my social circle behind =D

    I think ANet realized that by implementing the game in certain ways, they had pros and cons. Instances are great, but some persistent areas are required. And so on...

    I do see GW2 as GW1 plus all the stuff that is missing.

    (I do LOVE the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon reference since the film rates very highly on my list of all time favourite ones.)

    I think Rhonwyn wasn't completely serious about the "vapoware" implications and I wasn't too.
    I appriciate your comment, but I don't think that ranting about the issues again and again will help you or the community stuck in the waiting game for GW2.
    This blog should portrait how I will try to close the gap betweeen GW and GW2 (successful or not)

    I hope you will like what I have to say (or not, it's up to you all)

    The only reason >I< used the term 'vaporware', is to get a rise out of people. Everything I've seen on GW2, shows they are working on it, and working diligently. I don't know how far along the duke nukem guys were on stuff before they decided to throw the couch out the window.

    What bugs the SH** outta me about this whole GW2 things is two issues.
    One, they obviously thought they could crank GW2 out in a year or so at the start, so they made NO plans to continue support for GW1. This is evidenced by dumping one person on it to do pretty much everything.
    Also by the fact that they cut short the actual expansion they were working on TO work on GW2. (see Utopia for what eye of the north expansion COULD have been)

    The second thing that bugs me, when GW2 starts taking longer then they thought to make, they don't really ramp up much support for GW1. They add a few people to it, and attempts to put out new content are sporadic at best. Even this skill update they tried to do has taken literally months.
    And during this time, many of us were expecting at least a beta testing for GW2 to occur in 09. Now we're HOPING to see open beta testing in 10. It's looking like we'll be lucky to get that. But I've talked to some people, and they say, yes, the game is well on it's way, it IS playable. Beyond that, they can say nothing else. They can't even give estimates on how far the world is built, how far quests are done, storyline, or chara and skill development.

    What bugs me about THAT is, they don't want ANYONE outside the company to see all these nifty new things they're supposedly working on. So they're keeping any and all info and stuff CLOSED. I mean, they barely were able to say we could have SWIMMING! And they can't tell us what HoM achivements will bring us in the game. I will give the cavat on that one that they're probably still working out details on that issue.

    That they opened the door early on, but then shut the door once work got into it, is upsetting to most players.
    BUT... the other thing is, even with the crap amount of content we're getting for GW1, even for the little scraps we're getting for GW2 now and then, we're STILL flocking to this game like there's no tomorow, which shows me just how bad off the gaming industry really is.
    For many of us, the alternatives are Aion and WoW, which... quite frankly, aren't very good alternatives at all.

    Anyone know a good free Tabula Rasa server out there? :/

    edit:god... that friggin pink...

    Because not every game is Duke Nukem Forever. Usually a game trailer shows some development of the game. I was excited about the trailer and I guess 95% of the GW population was, too.

    Uhhh.... sure you did not mean ".... I'm not looking forward to...."

    Keep comments comming on this sample blog for the GWO "blogossphere".
