Fansites, Forums and Blogs

→ Kill Ten Rats | [GW2] The LA Effect

Ravious discusses the latest information about Lion’s Arch from ArenaNet’s blog posts, and also discusses the importance of Lion’s Arch in Guild Wars 1.

→ Kill Ten Rats | Reflecting on Outcomes

This is an interesting read. Zubon from Kill Ten Rats discusses the psychological aspects of the reward system in MMOs: how players react in a certain way after an event/dungeon is completed.

→ Hunter’s Insight | QFT: Martin Kerstein

For the past week or two, the Guild Wars 2 community have been receiving an influx of interviews giving more and more new details on Guild Wars 2. Hunter’s Insight summarizes some of Martin Kerstein’s interviews with the European GW2 fansites.

→ Hunter’s Insight | QFT: Walking

I’m really liking this QFT thing! Hunter’s Insight quotes more interviews, mostly about the topic of underwater combat. They also quote about one of the most important game mechanic second to jumping in Guild Wars 2: Walking

→ Attached to Keyboard | PvP, PvE, and the Sharded Player Base

Tasha discusses the implementation of servers in Guild Wars 2, how changing servers will differ from Guild Wars 1, how servers will affect PvE-players, and the suggestion of international servers for Guild Wars 2.

→ Hexwise | Sneak-Peak

I’m not sure if this will be set in the Guild Wars universe (as the author stated in a previous post that he’s taking this site to a new direction); however this is surely an interesting read for all you fantasy-fans who are waiting for the third Guild Wars book.
