Default A New Look for GuildWars.com

Get ready, because within the next few weeks you're going to see some major improvements to the Guild Wars website! We're working on some big changes behind the scenes that will result in a sleek, shiny new GuildWars.com. This redesigned site will feature an updated appearance and an improved layout, but most importantly, it will help you stay up to date on everything that's happening in the Guild Wars game and community. See you soon on the new website!

I don't think people will be much surprised with a website style change...I suspect hardly anyone will care.

Well, we know they're integrating web interactivity with some aspects of GW2 -- they might be spreading some of their ideas over to GW and its site. That's the only reason I can see doing a site overhaul at this stage.

I wonder if they're planning on keeping GW2 and GW1 websites separate, or if they're going to merge them...

Good for the website, but they still can't allow me to change the visual background seen while entering my username, password and character name?

SLIGHTLY DOES NOT CARE.

I can't even remember the last time I go to that site. Although I do understand that they want to update GW1 due to GW2, I hope they fix something else in GW1.

Well in the latest GW2 blog, "Building Community," Martin officially announced that there will be official forums for both GW and GW2 and that they will be trending away from the "traditional fansite program." So can only guess that official forums will be the biggest change to the website.

So...they expect the community to move from fansite forums to the official ones after 7 years?? I mean, those forums already have all the guides, a sort of community, all that's been built slowly through the years...how could a brand new forum be considered at this point?

Who knows what they 'expect' but a brand new forum for a brand new game is not that strange. Maybe they believe it will be easier to find for new / casual players, it might even be reachable from within the game, like the wiki.

Don't worry, they'll likely be better at managing / moderating it then Bioware was with their ToR forum; it's just not possible to do it any worse.

For a brand new game, that obviusly makes sense. I was taking more about gw than gw2 though, that's why my perplexity. Obviosly they thought "we made 30, let's make 31".

People that are REALLY into Guild Wars are really into it. I believe that both of the GW wikis are the best wikis for any game I have played. These are the best unofficial forums for a game as well including gw2guru.

Most people aren't the people that come to fan sites like this. Most people will end up at the official forums for GW2 if they visit a forum at all for things other than update notes etc. Heck, most people just ask in game, "Hey, what changed with the update?" Most people in MMO's can't even be bothered to read the patch notes that are attached to a game's launcher for crying out loud.
