I know I should know better than to feed a troll, but what does that comment even mean? What does NCSoft have to do with this at all?

After this week they have to announce the new profession right?

I hope the people who play this race wont be as annoying as WoW's gnome players!

Well sometime before the end of the year. So sometime between now and Halloween probably.

@drunkingamebar Name an MMO with a small race that doesn't have annoying players flocking to it.

Although I really like the concept of the Asura. Sure they're "cute" but they're mean little buggers.

@Lucidus Just makes it more satisfying to kick one on the side of the head in a pvp match.

I hope I don't hate asura players nearly as much as I have hated and still hate gnome players.

(AoC, for example. Or Eve.)

I might have to roll one toon from each class before I decide which profession I like the best, but I already know what race they're all going to be.

Let me know what server you're going to be on, Drunkingamebar. My Asuras, let me show you them.

@Utakata you were, but you were just oblivious.

It's like a bad relationship, you don't know how bad it is, until it's over. :)

From in side the box it's fine, out side the box you see it clear as day.

Nothing against you, hope you understand.

Umm... NCSoft has no influence on how Guild Wars 2 is developed. They are simply the publisher for the game. All game design decisions stay with ArenaNet.

As for the blog post, absolutely love the voices and how the Asura are shaping up.

It looks like Guild Wars 1. And it's actually far closer to RIFT in style than TERA or Aion. RIFT and GW1&2 occupy a middle ground. Considering how popular Eastern art styles have become in the West, it's becoming more common to see stylized art that doesn't fit into the bulky, spike-covered, hyper-macho WoW-esque aesthetic.

I'm pretty sure you were well aware of the "scary NCSoft getting their executive meddling all over GW2" implications of your first post, but in case you weren't, that's why you're getting downvoted. Unfortunately, a lot of people still think that NCSoft is the developer, or that they have a lot of influence over the game, and are wary of it because they don't want to play a "Korean grinder."

Geez, some of the Asura dialogue is stupid.
Asura are on the top of the evolutionary chain you say?....... you do know that evolution is a tree with no 'higher than' right?

You always run into problems when you try and write characters that are smarter then you are.... they often say things that either don't make any sense, or is just plain stupid.

To me they just come off as annoying.

You silly bookahs and your height-based view of the evolutionary movement! If you were as smart as I, you would understand that evolution is more like... well like a gear. You're location would be somewhere around... the teeth. Right on the outside, grinding against an oversize clumsy gear and a pointy furry gear!

But us? We're more like... the machine spinning those gears! Now stop flapping that mammalian auditory hole and reach up that shelf for me, I seemed to have misplaced my step-stool golem and requi-you know what... kneel down and I'll stand on your shoulders, you wouldn't know the difference between a geometric crystal array and a Norn's beard.
