Default Is gw1 still popular?

Hi,
I , like many others bought gw2 when it came out. but were a bit disappointed in it. So is gw1 still popular enough to play or is it shutting down?
regards

It is popular enough there are still some people that play and with free Uw and Fow this past week there were even many pug groups for uwsc and fowsc and many w/me ecto farms around. Kamadan is also usually decently busy, not like it used to be but there are still people, LA ascalon, kaineing and shing jea are pretty empty nowadays. I like you bought gw2 and played for a quite a while, but recently I became disappointed with the broken promises and the annoying useless monthly content that fails to add anything worthwhile to the game. So I am back playing gw and there are still others there for whatever reason so feel free to join the great original gw community just also expect to play alone with heroes a vast majority of the time if you do.

Yes indeed. Certainly not as populated as in its heyday (circa 2006/2007), but like you there are many who have come back from GW2 (and several other games), and many more like me who never left. Admittedly, I have been taking a small break from the game for the last couple of months to enjoy SWTOR and Defiance, but I still have a lot of things I want to do in the game, so will get back into it once again in the next few months (which is another one of the things I loved about the game that didn't make it to GW2 - the ability to take time off and not miss any content during that time).

<-- never left

not only are people playing gw, a bunch of people just started playing new characters from the beginning (pre-searing!)...so there is still interest in this game and many people are still playing (dont be fooled by the lack of peeps in outposts--lots of people are now just playing with guilds or heroes , but join a guild and you will find others still playing!!!)

I would like to come back too but replaced my dying PC with a Mac and gave up the option.

oh well.

it would be nice if someone would port GW1 to OSX.

Please? Anybody?

I am currently using playonlinux to run the free trial of GW1 and it is working wonderfully on my debian machine. I thought to post this link for the mac version in the event that someone would like to try it.

BTW,
I am really enjoying GW. I am starting from the beginning and wish I would have tried it sooner. It is a great game.
