I'm trying to log in this morning and getting connection errors. I can't play the game or log in on the website. Anyone else having this issue? (I'll edit this info out once its corrected and put in character names and whatnot)

I saw a note from one of the diss folks on irc that there were login server issues this morning. They've been really really good about passing updates to their twitter and facebook page if you're ever unsure. (And probably the forums/their support page but I've gotten used to checking their twitter feed.)

Post by: Wren on August 25, 2012, 05:39:28 AM
followup: Yeah latest messages are that they're aware of connectivity issues and they're working to resolve them, if you get any specific error codes they're asking you to submit them.

Welcome to a launch! (although overall it hasn't been too bad, things were quite smooth last night)

I assume people are getting into the game at this point? I've been getting error 42 all day long :(

"If you're getting an error 42 trying to log in to #GW2, try closing and relaunching the client."

But otherwise it sounds like they're aware some people are running in to this. If I see any other updates about it I'll let you know!

Error 42 every time, starting to doubt I'll be able to login today at all.

Post by: Wren on August 25, 2012, 12:48:17 PM
They've updated their support page with the most common issues including error codes:
http://en.support.guildwars2.com/

It looks like error 42 may be related to security software or port forwarding.

I think Tarnished Coast is the unofficial RP server, as you've seen many people rolled on maguuma but we haven't been terribly active lately and the caution about maguuma is that it ended up being where Goon Squad (Something Awful Forums) and related guilds ended up rolling.

I haven't run into any problems with them but it's worth noting because it's made this server somewhat pvp focused.

Friends I have on Tarnished Coast have noted a pleasant community.

Either way, you can belong to multiple guilds and be in a guild on a different server so it doesn't matter all that much! Enjoy the pretty!

I got a moa from the Admiral.  :)  I also got a guild invite, but when I looked at it, it didn't seem like the right one, so I declined.  But it was (Legion of Blood Angels, I think it was called), send me a new invite.  :)  Or tell me what the Ft Aspenwood guildname is.

Yay for people!  I will wander back soon once I finish Persona 4 Golden, so you know...another 75 hours or so should do it.

I got a moa from the Admiral.  :)  I also got a guild invite, but when I looked at it, it didn't seem like the right one, so I declined.  But it was (Legion of Blood Angels, I think it was called), send me a new invite.  :)  Or tell me what the Ft Aspenwood guildname is.

We don't actually have a Ft. Aspenwood guild, because up until this week it was just myself and Falafals playing on that server.  We're in the Penny Arcade forum guild, but it's unfortunately full at the moment.  Fortunately, you can be in multiple guilds in GW2, and I'm happy to make one to facilitate conversation between DCers.  Or if there's already a cross-server DC guild, we could just join that one.  You can't group up in the outerworld with people from different servers yet (I have a suspicion guesting will be in sometime quite soon, though) but we can do dungeons together once you guys get to level 30.

As for Ft. Aspenwood itself, it's very much not an RP server of any sort, but it's a pretty friendly place in general.  It's about midway up the World vs. World ladder, which is a good place to be, and there's no single giant dominating community on it.  As on every server ever, keep General Chat on at your own risk.

Okey, I created <Azure Hood Gang> and invited Avi and Shardy.  :)  Any other Ft Aspenwood peeps?

You can invite Falafals too, his main character's name is Reishi Shimeji.  And yes, she has a mushroom head.

I'm not sure if Gwyddy has the game yet.

Yeah, I have it. I'll spend some time on it once this crippling multi-day sinus migraine passes.

I'll try to remember to invite Fal and promote everyone to officer so I stop being the blocking factor.
Title: Re: Guild Wars 2 Contact List and Useful Stuff
Post by: Thanamira on January 07, 2013, 07:39:17 PM
Right!  Falafals and Gwyddy invited.  Don't forget to Represent the guild so that the guild gets cookies.  No,  I don't know how to do that.

I also promoted people to officer so you can invite others, yay.

I'm back to playing this a bit more of late, so here's my contact information:

Server: Jade Quarry
ArenaNet ID: Periastron.7302

Of course, all bets are off once FF XIV relaunches in a couple of weeks.  ;)

FF XIV IS looking surprisingly good after their overhaul, I may have to re-up my subscription to tinker. It's getting some well deserved buzz.

I've been been testing FF14: ARR since alpha and it really is a different game now... more like a Western MMO with most of the modern conveniences.  There's a fear that it has maybe gone a bit too "WoW-style"; however, I will reserve judgement until I've had a chance to see what lies beyond the first 20 levels.  If the game eventually ends up with a similar diversity of endgame content to what FFXI has, I won't complain.

Chulo and I will likely end up on the Hyperion server, with some FFXI acquaintances.  I have a Gladiator from 1.0, but I never did get very far with her, and so I'm just as likely to restart from scratch.

Post by: Wren on August 12, 2013, 04:27:12 PM
Yeah I beta tested pre-ARR and I've dipped in and out throughout the ARR testing and I've been impressed with the changes. They've done a good job of keeping the Final Fantasy flavor but making the gameplay more interesting and approachable. Like you said I'm interested to see if they're able to carry that through to the end game.

I'm also super excited about Wildstar but Wildstar won't be ready for a while so I have time to tinker elsewhere.

I've been playing during the trial week. Enjoying it mostly, but I'm not sure yet if I'm going to stick with it- I have a pretty extensive backlog of SP games and have been gradually losing interest in MMOs. (I don't even play LOTRO, though I have a lifetime account.)

Account is hjorolf.####. Currently playing as Vagnan on Fort Aspenwood.
