There will be a GW3 sort of but as a mobile game, because why not right. Or better yet a GW Royale

A-bomb to snow in March yet again. Go away evil white stuff.

On the whole progression server thing... I get the appeal to an extent, but I've never done one because I feel like it's too much of a commitment to keep up with it. I will probably dabble very casually in WoW's classic server to play with some of the old hybrid builds I used to enjoy, but not for raiding or anything.
