A Conversation for Guild Wars - The Online Role-Playing Game

This Entry is very inaccurate and wrong in some places.
The game is for instance *not* called Guild Wars because you have guilds there but because of in game history. The so-called Guild Wars took place before the time in which the game takes place.
Also Arenanet still owns the game and makes all updates etc although they are connected to NCsoft now. The Entry makes it sound like the sold it or something like that.
The henchmen system is poorly described and the description of 'heroes' is missing completely (but maybe it hasn't been in place yet when the Entry was written).
The real *interesting* facts about the skill system are not mentioned at all. Like you can always only carry 8 skills at a time, which you have to choose carefully amongst hundreds of possibilities.
Today the game also has additional classes: Assassin, Ritualist, Dervish and Paragon
There's also much more on the PvP side today.
The great story of the game has not been mentioned at all.
It is also wrong that you need real players for the game, you only need them in some places but it is possible to do most things alone with NPCs.
