Umm I forgot to say this but. You need to save the installer to a new folder(name it whatever) And then run and install the game to that folder. I am editing the OP to reflect this.

Arenanet Blog - Choosing and Transferring Worlds in Guild Wars 2 - April 24th, 2012: http://www.arena.net/blog/choosing-and-transferring-worlds-in-guild-wars-2

We will have several servers to choose from for our home server. We might wanna start making plans now on which one we will be on.

I am downloading the client, but for some reason I can't log into the site, even after resetting my password twice, though I don't get an error message - it just stays on the log in screen.

ETA: getting nice download speeds, almost 1 MB/sec.

Yea that has been a problem for many if not most people. Right now it seems to be working. 12:44am EST

Why did they have to set up the client 5 minutes after I went to bed yesterday? Now I'm at work, and probably won't be able to start the download till late this evening... :mad:

Let us know on what world we decide. Crystal Desert has a nice ring to it, IMHO. :)

ETA: expect a lot of yelling on the forums about the cost of transfer between worlds.

For the record:
"Your world choice during Beta Events will not lock you in for launch. Everything will be wiped before the headstart. ^MK"

Let's see if our allies will go along with this (via FB)

Also it might be a good idea to print this page out.
Just click on the the picture that best fits your region.

I got a job and money just in time to pre-purchase (yay!) so I will be around this weekend.

The download is about 13GB. Don't be fooled by the percentages, that seems to count files, not GB. The last 15% went in 15 minutes for me. :)

Seems like they did. I threw it out there, and reactions were along the lines of "why not". :)

Is there a vent to use? Is the old vent still up?

Just saw this tweet:

Old Vent is gone. However Ally vent is up. I will send you a message with the info.

Is it the same one as listed in the GW1 entry window?

Also, who's in and where are they? Looks like I'm on Anvil Rock. Xandra Jaenicke

I think we decided on Crystal Desert to meet at. I will be online after work, in about 2 hours.

Ah, well. I guess I'm stuck off solo then. :(

Can someone send me the info too? The links I have saved on vent seem to be out-dated, since it's not connecting...

It's 1800 gems to switch servers. In this beta, they promised to give us 2000 gems for just these occasions. :)

There's some info on our GW1 greeting thing, but I think it's out of date too. At least no one is in there.

Also, Stormy is ignoring me.

I'm having trouble inviting anyone to the Guild. Actually, that's not true. I can invite people, it just seems that they cannot accept.

Problem solved. Apparently, you cannot accept in the intro area.

Yeah, we found this out...although I think it's the very opening stuff, ie you create your character and you spawn in for that first event. I think once that event is finished you can join the guild, but not before that.
