This is a great update--

If Guild Wars 1 would only...

(1) Keep making new content
(2) Reduce the party size cap to 6 instead of 8
(3) Give the game a graphics overhaul
(4) Allow z-axis movement, swimming, jumping, etc.

... I'd be in online game heaven. (I can dream, can't I?)

Although I am looking forward to GW2, I have to say I overwhelmingly prefer the instancing/hero/story-telling structure of Guild Wars 1. GW1 handles these features (i.e., henchmen, story, world creation, combat, etc.) about a bazillion times better than either STO or DDO, imo.

What a wonderful way to reward alt-oholism :)

I love playing alts so this really appeals to me.

@Valdamar

well to be honest, you have to pay ncsoft in order to receive that rewrad, lol... and those slots aren't exactly cheap.

Well ArenaNet/NCSoft let me have 8 slots with the £15 it cost me to buy all 4 campaigns in one package and because I'm not planning to play a Monk that's plenty enough to feed my alt-oholism.

Tbh I don't begrudge NCSoft charging higher than a P2P game for character slots considering that there's not many MMOs with as much content as Guild Wars that can be accessed for a single one-off fee of £15 - ArenaNet+NCSoft have to make money somehow, or they wouldn't have had enough capital to invest in GW2.

Nice for those who are still playing. Me on the other hand will have to pass because I been playing GW for 5 years already. It is time for something different until Guild Wars 2 gets here.
