well I had never heard of GMG before and did a search of GW2 and the other GMG thread didn't come up. Sorry for duplicate post.

Care to provide a link or coupon code? When you search for Guild Wars 2 on GMG, it just comes up as $59.95, dude.

You have to use the code "PCGMR-ALLIN-GREEN".

Here's the link to the product: http://www.greenmang...tal-edition-na/

Is there a reason the voucher code isn't working when I click the "use" button? Anyone else having that issue?

EDIT: Ah, you have to disable AdBlock in Firefox for that page, then it becomes clickable.

Did you do it with or without quotes? I literally just used it, so I know it's still working.

Yea, sorry. I had this long post then when I was hitting refresh and waiting for the scores of replies from people thanking me, I noticed the GMG thread.

Don't know how to delete my post so I just removed the long part. I guess I should have just added the disclaimer to the beginning and left it alone.

check the top of the page for something that says you need to register first. Once you do, it will work. they don't let you buy anything without an account.

EDIT: you edited while I was responding lol. Guess my answer doesn't apply

One last question before ordering:
Is this a better option than my $47.99 physical pre-order at Newegg? I dunno if they've announced any nice materials that come with the physical version or not. Usually I just prefer to pick up the digital edition for MMOs due to less clutter in my house.

you get to start playing on the 25th instead of the 28th and every character you make on your account starts with a +2 to various stats ring

as for the STANDARD physical copy, unless you pre-purchase (ie, not the newegg preorder (I cancelled mine)) I don't think it comes with anything special.

The collector's edition has some cool stuff, but I'm not about to pay that much.

Sweet deal. Yeah, cancelled my Newegg order and got this one and linked it to the Guild Wars 2 website. No tax, too.

What the?? I have tried both my MasterCard and my Visa and keep getting error messages on this site!

"Order not complete
We have been unable to complete your order, please contact your payment provider before trying again. Thank you for visiting Green Man Gaming."

Anyone else? I have never had any issue and used both these cards in past week (one last night!) no issue.

"We are aware that many of our customers have been affected by the error message “Order Not Complete,” and that a large number of those orders were being falsely rejected by the system that we use. We would like to offer our collective apologies to everyone who had been affected, as we understand the level of frustration this has caused for a number of you.

Wow. Well got a response and they fixed the issue, so Guild Wars 2 for $44.97 is mine.

If anyone else has an issue you can contact them and they can help out. Bit annoying, but good customer service for me.

My original thread pointed out that some of the folks on SD were having trouble with credit cards but then I deleted it :P

There may be an issue due to the fact that GMG is in the UK. Paypal is an easy way around that as long as it's not just linked to your card.

Do I have to use Capsule to play GW2 or is it similar to the way Blizzard handles their games? I'll be all over it if you download it through the developer's site like Blizzard.

no capsule required, its like blizzard games.

when you complete purchase, you get your game code, go to the GW website, enter the code, create a GW account (if you dont already have one), and download your game

Thanks! I guess the code is locked to one account. I already used the code on Borderlands 2. I had to make another account to get GW2 for that price.

Thanks for the heads up, ordered one. Also played the beta and the games great. Nice step forward for the MMO genre.

Think they ran out of keys.

First and foremost is Guild Wars 2 Digital Edition, for 15% off when you use code ROLLF-OR1D6-DMAGE in the basket, available until 1100 UTC August 6th. We now have certifiably limited stock of this title, with just 1,000 keys for EU and 1,500 for NA. This code will not work on the Digital Deluxe Edition.

Source: http://blog.greenman...als-august-3rd/

Although it's a different promo code, but they did state that they only had limited stock.

I think they just restocked keys. I tried buying it when I got home from work around midnight CST and the page was down, tried again about 5 minutes ago (4:25am CST) and it went through, coupon code still worked and everything. Thanks OP for the $45 GW2 :]

hm, that seems like it was the second or third time they've 'run out of stock.'

if you try to buy and it doesn't work, don't lose hope! try again later.

It's back in stock but you no longer get the 3 Day Early Access or any of the other pre-order bonuses. Use ORDER-NTCOM-PLETE to get 25% OFF.
