Guild Wars 2 on RMBP

Hi!

I have a question to the people that plays Guild Wars 2, on their RMBP

Because i'm going to buy it tomorrow and install the OS X Client but how well is it performing ?

And have you had any bugs yet?

Hmm, it would be much better if you install Guild Wars 2 on bootcamp, because the GW2 version on OS X is based on the Wineskin port.

So if you play this game on Windows you'll get much more FPS on the same settings / resolution.

That's an interesting take on something considering your signature....

Yes, I like OS X very much but for gaming Windows is unfortunately the place to be.

I don't game much at all, but I do need Windows for work and it works well (Windows 7 at least). It looks like it will be the new Windows XP - the OS that will not die.

But I prefer OS X on my off time
