BWE thread

We only have an hour and a half until the last Guild Wars 2 beta weekend!!!  I plan to leave my bed only to retrieve Jimmy John’s from the delivery driver.  And maybe to pee.

I think I’m gonna go with a Sylvari thief.  Maybe a human.

Remember, we’re going to be on the Gates of Madness server.  Richard McAteer will be registering the guild for this weekend, so if you want to join up and get a feel for what the guild system is like at lower levels, shoot him a yell!  His GW2 ID is Epinephrine.8670.  I’ll also be on early and will have officer privileges.  My GW2 ID is tsukmeibols.7340.

This comment thread will serve as an open thread during the weekend for all of us playing (or anybody else who wants to chime in).

Also, is there a good time to get together for a group photo?

Here’s the updated guild roster with all the GW2 IDs that we have.

About JT Eberhard

He spent two and a half years with the Secular Student Alliance as their first high school organizer. During that time he built the SSA’s high school program and oversaw the development of groups nationwide. JT is also the co-founder of the popular Skepticon conference and served as the events lead organizer during its first three years.

    I’m disapoint not to see Laury Plany: Many Alts Guy not listed? Did my qualifications not stack up?

    • http://onth3outsidecorner.wordpress.com/ otocump

      Plant….not Plany….can’t even spell my own name right today!

    • http://freethoughtblogs.com/wwjtd JT Eberhard

      Your resume was a little light, but I guess we can let you in. :P

      Got a GW2 ID?

  • invivoMark

    I’m giving it a 50% chance I’ll pre-purchase tonight and be on the beta tomorrow. It’s just too tempting to try it out for the weekend.

  • Carina

    OK confirmed my GW2 ID as Carina.4185

    See ya there!

  • Epinephrine

    Ok, in game, but the guild has been made – let us know who to contact for invites.

  • Dave, the Kwisatz Haderach

    In game as KorLeonis.8650, who’s doing invites?

  • Epinephrine

    I don’t know, trying to figure that out.

    Was thinking of making a guild as a collecting place until we find out who made Godless

  • Epinephrine

    Well, I’m setting up “Evil Little Things” as a way to gather people – when we find out who made the guild we can arrange invites.

  • Condit

    I totally forgot this was today. If there’s any room left for another heathen running around I’ll be on later as Charlemagne.3715, probably as some sort of engineer.

  • Carina

    Great ELT it is then. Just got the invite

  • Epinephrine

    Looks like we’ve found the guild, so we’ll get invites going to the proper guild :)

    I’ll shut ELT down shortly.

    • Dave, the Kwisatz Haderach

      Excellent! Word of advice, be careful wandering around the Asura home city. Floating cube in the sky, and they haven’t managed to invent hand rails. Its a looooong way down in some spots.

  • Daniel Schealler

    Gah! Login issues.

    Thinks I’m not registered.


  • http://sci-ence.org Maki

    You can find me at makiface.3286

    See you online!

    • http://sci-ence.org Maki

      Gates of Madness was full, so I rolled on Anvil Rock. We can still guest in other worlds right?

  • kagekiri

    Oof, looks like I’ll spend this weekend trying to see if my friends in the game would mind jumping to Gates of Madness at launch. I’ll be kagekiri.1605, but might not make it to GoM until pre-release.

  • Kirikasena

    My username is KirikaSena.7413; I won’t really be able to play this weekend, however, as I’m currently out of town. I would like to be added to the roster, of course. :) I’m still clueless about what character I’ll make, but perhaps that codex thing will help me decide.

    • Kirikasena

      Oh, and my name is Daniel K. ;D

  • marismae

    Looks like my username is marismae.5316- trying out an Asura Thief for the weekend I think!

  • muadib

    Ill be getting on this weekend if ever finish downloading the game. userneame is Muadib.7852 and I will probably be playing a guardian.

  • Drakk

    Can I join, not now, but once the game ships and I (possibly) get a retail copy?

  • Mutsumi

    By the way, will we have a separate “things we learned from the BWE” posting, or should we use this one?

  • Praedico

    Can I add my name to the roster for release?
    Just got my first chance to play this past weekend, and now I’m super bummed out that I have to wait another month to play again. I’ll be playing a thief, probably sylvari, and my username is Praedico.1092
