Hey guys, just a bit of a PSA while we all wait for ArenaNet to resuscitate the hamsters. I know we've been waiting for five years. I know we're all tired, stayed up late, paid money and so forth and so on. I know there's absolutely nothing we wanted to do, planned for this weekend, and rested our hopes on other than traipsing about Tyria this weekend. But remember...
We can wish and hope and pray that the servers for a major MMO launch are ready, but so few seldom are. Guild Wars 2 has been topping Amazon's charts for weeks, and there are likely close to as many people trying to play GW2 as there were logging into Diablo 3 when it launched.
I want in too. My Asura needs to blow more stuff up. But for now, I'll wait and I hope you guys can take a moment, breathe, and remember that ArenaNet wants us all to stop screaming at them via Facebook, forums, and Twitter more than we want to start playing.
The servers will be back up. Until then... I'll go eat breakfast. LOTS OF BREAKFAST.
EDIT: And watch the Official Twitter of GW2 for updates.
