It's possible in most online games to go from level one to end cap without ever having to group. Player opinion on this phenomenon is mixed, with some players happy with it while others say that it goes against the massively multiplayer aspect of mmo games.

However, the main draw was the promise of regular new content in the form of the Guild Wars 2 Living World storyline. I'm a content junkie ... Read

For Guild Wars 2 players, it's been a very long wait since any new Living World content was released. The main reason for this was that the fantasy mmorpg was intent on releasing their Heart of Thorns expansion that added new zones and features. In fact, it's been a year-and-a-half since the last bit of Living World was released, but the wait is almost mercifully over. NCsoft has announced that Guild Wars 2 Living World season 3 is coming and wil... Read

Players often lament that mmo games don't give them a voice within the game. While this sentiment may be true for one reason or another, Guild Wars 2 players are being given the option to cast a vote in deciding an important part of the game's ongoing lore. ArenaNet announced today that there will be a Guild Wars 2 poll where players can cast their vote in naming the group composed of the iconic heroes that the player adventured with in the game'...

One of the benefits of being an mmo gamer is that spring can mean enjoying a nice update to your favorite online game. Such a circumstance is a far better experience than the spring cleaning my mother forced me and my siblings to do every year once the weather got warmer. ArenaNet has announced that the Guild Wars 2 Spring Quarterly Update is now live for the game. Unlike previous years, the focus is not on new content but on rather improving the... Read

Will there be actual new content or not? That's the question on the minds of Guild Wars 2 fans after seeing the new trailer for the new spring update hitting on April 19.
The super short trailer -- while it runs at a fairly standard 30 seconds for a sneak peek, only roughly a third of that time was spent showing actual snippets from the online rpg -- has befuddled fans on what the update will actually bring on.
There is also growing speculation... Read
