Logic! Look at the great frist BWE they gave us. Yes it was great but also look at how much is yet missing from the game. What we seen was only about a 1/4 of a complete game. They still have a long ways to go before it is all completed and I think they needed the money to complete it.

I atleast hope they wait that long and don't release it without all the features like other MMOs.


I highly doubt we will see a Star-Trek-Online-esque release from Arenanet but I wouldn't be shocked if there will be initial server stability which is typical of game releases.  I'm guessing that content is gated from BWEs is because they want people to enjoy that content after release.  Sure it needs to be tested, even the end-game stuff, but that might be what they are using CB for.  I do think they'll test Sylvari/Asuras with a later BWE but mostly for stability reasons.

It was stated that the CB build was not the most current build.  They used the one that was the most stable.  Could be plenty they've got done that they just havent moved to the CB build yet until they get it relatively stable for testing. 

I expect the next release date post to be something like:

"GW2 dev seen eating chicken nugget shaped like snowflake with 12 fries left on his plate!  GW2 coming out in December 2012!"

just because that zones arent available on BW dont mean they have already complete. 

the zones i play, (necro lvl 25) the game was already very polished. i would say GW2 is much close to release if the others zones are like the ones i try on BW and stress test

I'm sure there is a dedicated team of beta testers (paid ones) that are testing the game as we speak with far more up-to-date clients. I can't imagine a big company to rely only to the masses for beta testing.... Since I'm not on that beta testing I can't be sure on the quality/readiness of the rest of the game but I'm sure they won't show us everything in the game before release and that doesn't mean anything "new" will be flawed or not polished.

I believe the release will be around Halloween, maybe a bit later. They did say they want the "Halloween" quest line in GW1 to end, I can't imagine them adding new content in GW1 while GW2 is still running (I can be wrong of course)

i think you are reading too much into it, I doubt that was that guy's first tattoo and as the old saying goes, and I can speak from experience, "once you get ink in your blood....."  meaning its hard to stop with just one tatt

still  not assuming anything until Anet gives an official date

 

There are times when one must ask themselves is it my passion that truly frightens you? Or your own?

What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

I'd stop going there as that salesperson will just tell you whatever he wants.

 

On topic:  I originally thought that the game would release late July.  I don't think that's very feasible at this point so I'm revising my prediction to September.  That gives at least one if not two BWEs after this one coming up.  Plenty of time, I think, to fix whatever issues there may be at this point if they release in September.  No tattoo brought me to this conclusion, just the feedback from Anet on the first BWE.  :)

You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

Be afraid.....The dragons are HERE!

Agreed, not sure what's missing from the game.

3 races with their character customization and cities, 2 reported and those are probably fine.

If you have no clue how tattoo work, well first you should know that when doing a tattoo you are performing the skin at hundred of spot so to inject ink in between 2 layer of the skin and this need time for the skin to regenerate, especially if you do a bigger one.

Any good tattoo maker will tell you to not go to the sun with fresh tattoo, i don't know exactly how much you have to wait but you would need at least a month if i'm not wrong. The guy just need to make it before summer so he can enjoy taking sun bath with it. So it really doesn't tell you anything about when the game will be released. If it release during summer the guy will have to stay at home for the tattoo to heal, that's all you should know. In fact if anything it mean it will release in the summer rather than in september or it just mean the guy want to show off this summer or whatever ;p

 

And no i'm not covered with tattoo ;p just had a good friend that used to tattoo and was covered by them, he had an amazing silver surfer in all his back (he was a surf board painter).

Well, since people are going to bounce release date theories off of this, I'd just point out that a.) He wanted to get the tatoo ahead of Summer. b.) He was holding out to get the tattoo when the game shipped, but decided to get it when it was clear the game was not going to ship in advance of Summer.

So, up until recently, it appears he had hope it would ship ahead of Summer. The game can still release during Summer and fit with his timing motivation, because for most of us in the Northern Latitudes, June-August is our summer. The beach and the pool get very little usage before June or once September rolls around.

I'm thinking BWE1 pushed back the potential release date window by six weeks, which wouldn't have left more than a few weeks of "shirtless weather".

A young guy getting a tattoo because of a game and almost all of the comments are about what that tells us about the launch date instead of how tragic and sad this is.

I don't do tattoos myself, but it's not some fan that got a tattoo for attention. The guy is a dev who has been working on the game for a few years. At least it has some real personal significance. I'm sure other devs who are into tattoos have or will be getting tattoos to commemorate something they have spent years of their lives making a reality.

My personal dislike of tattoos doesn't require me to view them all as sad or tragic. Well, sometimes they are and sometimes I cringe, but at least this one isn't anywhere that can't be covered up while going for a job interview or for the majority of a typical day.

"Needless to say, I’m a huge fan of the Guild Wars 2 art style. About three years ago, I decided that the Guild Wars 2 logo would make an awesome tattoo, but I was going to wait for the game to ship before I had it done. But with summer coming up, I decided I couldn’t wait any longer, since I want to be able to go outside and enjoy the beautiful Seattle weather with my new tattoo. I was debating where to place the tattoo, but when a friend of mine suggested my ribcage, a picture of it popped into my head and I knew she was right."

So basically he said that he wanted to avoid the summer for getting his tattoo because he wanted to go outside and enjoy the sun. The sun can do things like bleach color. Sounds like he is going to be relieved of some burden and is ready to party.
