Good news. I still prefer Guild Wars 1 though - nothing can replace the Monk profession. :(

I can't believe that people are happily giving their money to NCsoft after they killed City of Heroes. Faith in humanity: Lost forever.

Well good for them, but i thought GW2 was terrible. I still prefer GW1 aswell. without a healer class the game just loses all sembless of strategy and teamwork on PvE.
