Opinions from a Long Time Fan

Opinions from a Long Time Fan | Guild Wars 2 |

In our latest Guild Wars 2 column, we take a look at the game from the viewpoint of a long time fan. Our thoughts are based on the recent beta weekend. See what you think before adding your comments.

A few months ago we talked about some things that were in the original game that I was hoping to see come back for Guild Wars 2.  One feature was very small, but made a huge impact.  I’m talking about the ability to draw on the mini map.  Why would something so simple be so important?  This feature was in the first game and I used it so much when adventuring in a group or with my guild.  Sure we had voice chat available, but it was nice to draw out the battle plans as we discussed strategy with each other.  It made sure we were all on the same page.  I am very glad to see that this feature is brought back for Guild Wars 2, as well as the ability to ping locations by simply double clicking the map.  Upon telling my guild the feature would be returning, they cheered!

The original party window was comparable to the size of the mini map. Such a small thing, yet it offered a wealth of information.
