There are always the forums for stuff like that. Honestly though, during the beta testing on these games 90% of any available global chat is people comparing the game to whatever the other latest and greatest MMO is and WoW. I'd rather that stuff be kept to the beta forums where I can ignore it.

Haha, yeah I forgot about that.  That's completely on the mark.  As far as finding a guild, pretty much have to go outside of the game and go to forums/different website in my experience, but it totally depends on what you're looking for in a guild.  I would love to see something good integrated in game that worked well that you didn't have to go to separate forums/website since general chat has been mostly misses (and not hits) for me in the past as far as finding guilds go.  Maybe FF14aRR will be different.  Is LFD cross realm?

Only within the same data center. Meaning you can't Duty Finder with players on a Japanese server if you're playing on an NA/EU server.

Awesome. If someone can make a post when the World Transfer applications go live in case I miss it, that would be fantastic.

Which kind of transfer were you looking for? Yoshida said players on Legacy worlds will have to wait up to 6 months before they can be moved to "new" servers. I believe we will be able to transfer between Legacy worlds just before retail though. Depending on which kind of server you want to transfer, and how high level your character is, I'd just stay start fresh. Depending on your subscription type, you can have up to 8 character slots.

That would really suck, especially since they don't make any mention of such restrictions on the World Transfer details page. I plan on starting one of my characters over, but the other is level 35 and has her Monk soul. So yeah, I'm not too concerned if I have to wait to move that character since I'll have the other character to play around with.

I just REALLY don't want to play on a server where people won't shut up about the combat being "inferior" to v. 1.2x or whatever.

Well the general idea is that the new servers will be a fresh start for all players wanting to start on equal footing. If they allowed  1.0 character import it would quickly destabilize the economy etc. I really don't think you have to worry about the whining outside of the forums. All the feedback I've been reading from Phase 3 has been overwhelmingly positive, even regarding combat. You'll always have the occasional douche but that's what blacklists are for. Our FC has a bunch of people returning who were very low level and a good number of them new players and we are all starting on a Legacy World. Level Synch for all group content makes the gap no longer a barrier to friends playing together.

Some good reading here for the interested and will hopefully put some perspective on why ARR will remain a subscription based game for the better.

Oh yeah? That sounds cool. Maybe I'll keep my characters on two different servers then. I know actually having people to play with is what's kept me playing Guild Wars 2 for this long. You'll have to let me know which legacy world you guys will be playing on.

I'll chime in as one of the returning players whose highest level was 21. And I've got another returning player not too much higher than me (Prasch) and a new player (Veev) who should be joining me, too. And maybe more! Plus, level sync and people leveling other jobs should make it so that there are plenty of folks to play with :)

World Transfer Information and Application Page is now LIVE for Phase 4/Launch. Solaris will be on Hyperion (NA/EU).

Beta in a little over an hour. There's another small patch as of this morning. Better get it now because its going to be jam packed.

My mother switched our internet service to save money, and now I can barely stay connected during the day, so it doesn't look like I'll be doing much playing this weekend if at all.

How do you connect to the internet? Wireless, wired? Using a router? Etc etc...
