Tweets from the Hamburg Community Lunch with Colin

1_GW2_LogoA few minutes ago, the community lunch with Colin that took place in Hamburg, ended. I’m pretty sure we’ll get more information from the interviews soon on the various fansites that were invited. But Ramon Domke already tweeted a few things. Those tweets are all in German, so I’m certain that there are people out there looking at the letters wondering if they’re missing out.

But don’t worry, here is the English translation (with the German original next to it). All original tweets can be found on the official German Guild Wars 2 twitter account.

  1. Thanks Paeroka! :)

    Me and my guild have been speculating a lot about how the guild missions will work. That answers some of our questions. Also, I am pretty sure some of us will be happy to know that guild halls are still in the plans even if they aren’t being developed right now. :)

    • You’re welcome. :)

      I liked the bit about support characters and loot adjustment. Argh. Just spotted a false friend translation error there. There, fixed.

      And I’m curious about the LFG system. As much as I love it in WoW and how easy and fast it is to find a group (which saves hours of time and lots of nerves!), once you are inside a dungeon, the atmosphere is just SO different than when playing the old-fashioned way without LFG. It took hours to find a group, but in most cases, I left with at least one more name on my friends list for future dungeon runs (especially when I was playing with one of my healers ^^).

      • It might not be too bad. There is already a site that works as a LFG tool. Me and some friends used it when we wanted to do some dungeons but didn’t have enough people. So far we only had issue with PuG once. But yeah, it is a pretty casual relationship, just get in the dungeon, get stuff done and get out. Not much talking done or much more socialization than that. So it works for getting dungeons done. But as far as making new friends… Not so much. :/

        • Hmm… maybe we were “trained” by the various MMOs that dungeon runs are for tokens/loot and not for getting to know other people.

          I’ve only run through dungeons with RL friends and my main guild so far. We didn’t have any problems with those. ;)

          • That is quite possible. Myself, I am a pretty quiet guy. Even more so when I am playing with new people. Still there were some dungeons where there was some funny banter. For instance, you can always count on Logan and his amazing skills of getting himself killed to be a good ice breaker. :)

        • I still haven’t done too many dungeons. But that’s okay, it always takes me a long time to see them all. ;) Thankfully, my guild is big enough, so that it’s not too difficult to find others when I do want to do a dungeon. ^^

          Logan… gah. I don’t like him. But I think I haven’t seen much of him in the game yet. I guess I went to the wrong dungeons for that. ;)
