I just bought Guild Wars but I haven't opened it yet... because I don't want it to turn into another Everquest.
Specifically, I can't play the time of game that you have to join a guild where you need "raid attendance" or "you gotta be on X amount of days per week otherwise we boot you" or "we want you to be on at 5pm during the week" type crap that the endgame of EQ put you on.
GW seems like a pretty fun game and seems broken down a bit more so all missions are done with a smaller amount of people.
So the questions I have for those that have played (besides any comments you have on the above) are
1) Does Guild Wars require you to do gigantic raids (a la Everquest) where you need to be on at a certain time to meet your guild?
2) How many characters can you create per account?
Thanks so much! I don't want to open the game if it is going to turn into another EQ --- I quit that game for a reason and I donn't want to open a whole new can of worms
