I want to know how they've managed to deal with the issue of lag. Skill-based game plus Lag time between one side of the world and the other usually equals a world of pain..

Hope it works, never know, might end up playing this instead of the ubiquitous CSS at lunchtimes!

Actually there will be shards since the game will be at least divided into bigger groups (Europe, USA etc..). But at least it seems that they'll let the players choose where to play.

And I wish the game was awailable as digital download.

Guild Wars is skill-based in the same way as Magic: The Gathering. The skill is in knowing which spells to bring with you and when to use them. Twitch?-not so much.

It's structured like Diablo2. You meet up in the global chat area (a city) and then go on a quest with a party. During the quest one of the players is the server. Also like Diablo2 - no monthly fee.

Hopefully they'll offer a digital-only purchase here:

Incidentally Second Life isn't 'sharded'. Of course it has a much smaller community to support (27,000 or so last I heard) ..

No shards? Less grind? I'm interested again, didn't really give the beta enough of a chance on reflection. If it's digital purchase I'm in, it worked with City of Heroes (when it briefly offered it).

EVE does indeed lack shards and is lovely for it - presumably the galaxy system makes it easier for them to balance the player load with the nice side effect of a single continuing story and no fear of having friends split across shards.

On that note, how come MXO claims to continue the story of the movies when there are multiple servers with possibly divergent story lines? Not cool.

To implement no shards GuildWars sacrificed the single game world. There is no single game world in GW, only instances. And this is BAD for MMOG.

Regarding skill-based combat, I guess FPS people want to have it. I don't object to some skill-based combat in PvE, but I vote against it in PvP. I'm just all thumbs there, so there is no point for me to buy a game that has skill-based combat in PvP. :(
