    Guild Wars is ownage. I played the world preview event, and will soon be playing the beta. I love it. It's by the original D2 team, and it's similar in many ways, but still much much better.

    Guild Wars for sure! I HATE the idea of paying to play! Its pure bullshit! The people I've talked to say that GW has better graphics then WoW, I wouldn't know, I haven't looked at any of the WoW crap.

    Since I got the GW pre-order package, I'm able to play in each Beta Test Weekend event! As soon as its released, I'll be getting the full thing!

    1. WoW is horrible. Everything about it.
    2. Private servers > p2p.
    3. Lineage > all.

    yeah, cant forget how original that is? So if every sequal to a game, every game jsut took the exact same shit from the first game, you would be happy? If I am going to be paying 100$ a ****ing year for a game, I DONT WANT SHIT THAT IS Taken from ANOTHER, Cheaper, funner game.

    they didnt steal every fricken little thing. it's the same exact world as in war3, it's only a few years after war3. every sequel uses the same stuff from previous. oh noes, master chief was in the first and second halo! same material! the game sucks! a lot of the war3 stuff was moved into WoW, you just dont notice it. they are changed so it fits well in an MMORPG. who cares what the icons look like? they are from war3 so you can recognize them! the stats are what matter. i dont see why you bitch about it.

    knock, knock,
    whos there?
    halo 2 ****ing sucks

    though thats not hte point, the point is not characters and story elements, the point is the fact that you get new stuff, to attract, you dont take the same shit. did halo 2 have the exact same guns? no they got new guns. Did diablo II have the same weapon/spells/classes as diablo I? **** no, that is why it is called a sequal. you add new stuff, to new games. you dont rip stuff from your other games and have nothing original at all.

    the fact it is a shitty game, and you are expected to keep handing over money to a company that can no longer see the customer for the player, but the customer for the wallet.

    Blizzard Died when the last few of the original Diablo and SC teams left

    what the hell are you talking about? since WoW uses some icons from war3 it's automatically ripping off everything? WoW is using elements from war3, liek diablo II used from diablo. every sequel uses stuff from the first. they added new stuff, i have no idea what you are thinking.

    the game is so horribly designed. unless they come out with some super-amazing improvemnts after the beta, the game is nothing but a huge waste of money that guess what, is nothing more than a warcraft clone for morons who dont like strategy.

    well im sorry that you base WoW on war3 when you havent even played the game. you expect the same service in war3 as WoW. give it a good try, you should have played open beta.. did you?
