    Well to be fair, it's a teaser not a trailer.
    Teasers never show much.

    Good trailer, but it looks like we are near of the end of Guild Wars 2....

    I want it. I have played from release until end 2013. Came back June 2019. Now catching up on GW1 for the lore and in GW2 next is PoF for me. Still a lot of stuff to catch up. I might have played through all older stuff (the main content and achievements- which take some time) by the release of this one.

    Probably pre-ordering and getting the Ultimate edition for some additional gems. I just hope that this will be the last one. All major regions of the world that had been used in GW1 seem to be covered by then. And some underground maps for Primordus might get added as living world.

    The game has tons of stuff. 3 expansions feel like the right amount to end it. (With "End of Dragons" not much might be left besides smaller or other plots - which still culd be interesting though.) Main concern is about balancing because people request more and more elite specs. (Can't be content with some nice maps, story and a few JPs.)

    After that they should take their time to flesh out the WvW and PvP a bit more. With Steam hopefully bringing a few new players (TP issues fixed by then hopefully) and Cantha in the GW1 being the campaign that was prominent for the PvP ...

    PvP (and WvW) should definitely be re-visited by the devs. (And I don't mean the just balancing updates. New game modes and stuff - different types of maps and mechanics..)

  • Excited but I want more info. Don't want to set myself up for disappointment. Will likely get it on release.

    I hope it will be possible to link my existing account to a steam version of the future new expac. Thats my wishlist.

  • Take my money! Tell me where and when! Pre-order for sure!

    I'll 100% preorder it.

    I have my gripes with the way ANet does a lot of things, but both expansions have felt more than worth it, and fun to play. I'm looking forward to Cantha.

    Near the end of the Dragon plot probably, but that doesn't necessarily mean the end of GW2, the lore has plenty of material for other stories.

    It's looking good.

    But the HoT trailers in Season 2 were also looking good.
    HoT itself didn't turn out to be so good.

    I screamed KUUNAVANG almost as many times as I screamed BANJO last year at E3.

    I am insanely hyped for this. Factions was my favorite expansion. I liked (almost) everything about it.

    I also really hope we get something similar to Urgoz/Kanaxai. Not really raids, but more dungeon oriented.

  • coso.9173coso.9173 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I don't really care for Cantha, or eastern themed settings in general, but i'm eager to know the story will continue and maybe some changes will be made.
    I wish we would have some more info on the rest of the saga first.

    Not gonna lie, gonna preorder without aby expectations and pretty convinced I am going to have hell of a fun. I just hope we get news especs.

    New expac and steam arrival. Future is pretty interesting for this game. 5 months ago everyone thought GW2 is dead for good. And here we are, excited.

  • Excited but I want more info. Don't want to set myself up for disappointment. Will likely get it on release.

    I simply want more content. But I have no personal attachment to this Cantha place.

    For the more hardcore I'm sure this is enough to hype them up. But I play this game pretty casually and there wasn't really anything of substance shown so for now...it looks neat, I guess. Will keep an eye on it.

    Excited but I want more info. Don't want to set myself up for disappointment. Will likely get it on release.

    Thje title concerns me that it's enough Anet rushing through to get to a pay off they've allegedly been building to all these years, despite the fact that so little fits together very well or at least has been fleshed out. Hopefully I am wrong, but the recent form in story esp through the disaster that was LS4 (to me) says otherwise

    I think the biggest thing to remember is that although I am very happy to be returning to Cantha and I want to see Cantha and Kaineng City in the GW2 style, realistically it isn't going to look or feel like Factions. I enjoyed PoF very much, but it never felt like Nightfall or GW1 Elona. Anet don't strike me as being particularly devoted to respecting GW1 unless it suits their direct purposes, so for all intents and purposes, I'm expecting a completely new and different landscape which will ultimately be more akin to a new continent. That is something I have mixed feelings about.

    What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .

    I don't give a hoot about Cantha...I just hope they're able to produce the same level of quality that they delivered with the HoT expansion.

  • otto.5684otto.5684 Member ✭✭✭✭

    End of Dragons? I do not think I should feel excited when the naming seems like is done by computer putting the word dragon in a randomly generated sentence.

    I'm not as hyped as I voted but I'm certainly buying it no matter what because for the foreseeable future GW2 will be pretty much the only thing I care enough about to play it. I will always play GW2 as long as it's maintained like it is now. If it gets bunch of bugs and problems and nothing is done about that then I might lose interest but until then I'm definitely playing and buying every expansion.
    But of course, I hope there truly will be new things to look forward to!

    I'm also concerned about the title. I like dragons. There doesn't need to be an end...

    As with previous expansions, going to get the Ultimate edition pre-ordered pretty much asap.

    Cautiously optimistic but definitely want more infos.

    Excited but I want more info. Don't want to set myself up for disappointment. Will likely get it on release.

    I pre-purchased the Deluxe edition of the base game and the Ultimate editions of both HoT and PoF and I'm still playing so it seems pretty likely I'll pre-purchase this expansion too but I want more information before making that decision. I don't do blind purchases for anything.

    I'd prefer somewhere we've never been before to repeating another area from GW1. There's so much of Tyria we know nothing about and I want to find out what's there, but I suppose at least this way I have some idea of what to expect from the setting, and PoF introduced a lot of new stuff instead of just relying on nostalgia, so it seems reasonable to think this will be the same. (Plus after this, and maybe some LW maps filling in places from GW1 which don't make it into the initial release, like how Istan was added after PoF, they'll have to take us to new places because there will be very little left which we've already seen.)

    The story teaser we got in the new trailer, and the expansion name, has me very interested. I like the story in this game and I find the concept of the Elder Dragons intriguing. I've been wondering how we can balance their destuctiveness with the damage caused by killing them since that revelation came about, and it looks like we're going to get an answer.

    But I still want to know more about what I'd be buying (and what it costs) before I make a decision. It's very subjective of course and even I can't say exactly what would decide me for or against it, but I'll want a full list of features and some idea of the amount of story and general PvE content in the expansion, plus price options, then I'll decide if I'm going to get it right away, wait for a sale or maybe skip it all together.

    This pretty much describes why I voted how I did. I was hoping for some more content related to the upcoming expansion for the GW2 anniversary and I'm glad to see they did release this trailer for it. However, for me there still hasn't been quite enough details to make it a definite immediate purchase yet.

    I will buy it no mater what. I am not sure what Cantha is or why we have to end all dragons. I had the "End of Dragons" line.... Not all dragons can be bad.

    How am I feeling?
    Well, I had shoulder surgery a few months ago, so my arm still hurts, I'm not sleeping at night because I can't find a good sleeping position, and my 20th Wedding anniversary is coming up as well as my 50th birthday so that makes me feel pretty old.

    Other than that, I'm not to bad...thanks for asking.

    I was shaking when I saw the trailer and I almost teared up. I'm beyond excited!
    However I'd still prefer some more information like in the first trailer for PoF during the announcement back then.
    Some actual gameplay footage would be neat.
    I didn't watch the livestream today though as I was busy with getting the new skimmer upgrade so I watched it after. However does anyone know a rough date yet when it would be coming? Some people said it would be by the end of this year while other say summer or winter 2021.

    Somewhere between 'take my money' and 'excited but'. Closer to the former for sure (in a 'glass half empty/full' sense). Not blind adoration, but I don't look forward to their product 'expecting disappointment' by a long shot. :)

    In the event I don't get a chance, thank you all for the company and help when I needed it from time to time.

    They said 2021 in the stream but no specific season. I would guess late 2021 since it seems we're about halfway through the Icebrood Saga, which started almost a year ago.

    Same here. For me, going back to Cantha is a huge selling point on its own, and if we get the rest of the bare minimum expansion features at that point, that's enough for me. Anything after that is just a bonus. Also, if End of Dragons means that Guild Wars can finally move on from this plot (and not just toying with us), then it's most of what I wanted all in one place. I still want to get a features list to start throwing money around, but it's going to be hard to betray my optimism.

  • Hyped for a new GW2 expansion, but not hyped in particular for Cantha - I didn't play the original GW game, so it doesn't mean much to me. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    From the expansion name it's feel like this will setup for final chapter of GW2. Happy to have opportunity to go back to Cantha but It's also about what content it offer.

    I did vote 'take my money'... but not really as excited as the choice sounds. I tend to pre-order the Deluxe. I love Cantha so will of course pre-order this. The trailer was not very good. Too much visual clutter to see anything really. But it is just a teaser, so hopefully a real trailer comes out later. I want to see critters, cities, and countryside.

    I couldn't care less about Cantha myself. I'm curious about Kaineng City but beyond that I have no nostalgic attachement to the GW1: Factions. I'm hoping the maps are interesting, the meta events engaging and the soundtrack at least HoT level.
