This is genius can't stop laughing lol GIANT DRAGON VS HELICOPTERS FTW --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).
Lol, this is brilliant. I can't believe the amount of work that must've gone in to producing this. :P -- My Talk Lacky 13:22, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
IT"S ABSOLUTELY AWESOME :P --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 13:28, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
"Now that's a giant chicken." Made my day xD --MageUser MageMontu sig.pngMontu 13:30, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Haha yeah, that made me laugh my butt off too. Also, the scene at the end "Ah no that doesn't look right lemme fix this." Ahaha absolutely epic. Good job ANet, really good job. Donutdude 10:52, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
same here :P --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 13:30, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Best April joke evar by A.R.E.N.A team hah.Wapakalypse 13:31, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
The real joke is this isn't a joke :P --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 13:34, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
...And all we gave the world was the Shadowmancer. My hat's off to you, Anet, that's great stuff. <3 ~~ User Kiomadoushi sig.png Kiomadoushi 14:16, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
We got outclassed by Anet! :P ShadowRunner 14:27, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Last night-- "I'm suprised ANet hasn't gotten mad at us yet; this is the thief scandal all over again. (When they do, I'm screwed.)" -Aqua "Lol, no. I think anet likes this sort of thing." -Saxon Anet not only LIKES this sort of thing... they own us at it T~T... SO outclassed, ShadowRunner... ~~ User Kiomadoushi sig.png Kiomadoushi 14:40, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) I am assuming someone is fixing this page to be on equal ground with the other profession articles? - Infinite - talk 15:15, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

yes --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 15:17, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
yeah i went across the formats of the other articles, and pretty much swapped out info so its not just a mess of stuff, but that pic wouldn't scale down like the others... o.o ~~ User Kiomadoushi sig.png Kiomadoushi 15:46, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
yea you EC'ed my page --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 15:49, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
um... sorry... it looks real now >.> i just got excited ~~ User Kiomadoushi sig.png Kiomadoushi 16:42, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Should we include that you can test drive the commando in gw1 from embark reach? --Moto Saxon 17:31, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Not on GW2W, in my opinion. - Infinite - talk 17:33, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Well we should at least add a note about it or link to the gww article about it? --Moto Saxon 17:43, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
I think we should link to the quest. "This profession was [[gw1:<quest>|previewed]] in the original ''Guild Wars''." - Infinite - talk 17:49, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
I don't think we really need to link to the quest. The page already links to the Going Commando disguise on GWW. -  Alice  18:30, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
The edits were made around the same time, my comment was still informed about the version without that link. :) - Infinite - talk 18:32, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Is this a joke?--Hubbard User Hubbard.sig.Heritage Warhelm.png The Warrior 19:01, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

See ya!
Worst date evar!
Aw heck, that don’t look right. Let me fix this. xD Sardaukar User Sardaukar sig.png 19:05, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

(Edit conflict) yeah --you like that don't you..The Holy Dragons 19:05, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Can Someone please say APRIL FOOLS (Good one Arena net, very good) Kew24 19:10, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Do you think they'll keep this on the GW2 website? I mean, not on the profession page but as an "extra" or something? It'd be great to be able to see the profession videos and the page past today :D! 19:29, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Just notice how the two soldier professions are already released and commando is under soldier. This is the best April's fools ever! Love how the videos are far beyond GW2.--BookofTyria 22:49, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

LoL, the sniper vid is hilarious. He uses his scope to spot a hot norn girl and then shoots a random creature coming by.--BookofTyria 22:52, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Amazing. So amazing. Lysander 01:41, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

This has to be a joke[edit]

Its April 1st, aka april fools? This character doesnt even come close to fitting in with the rest! lol -- A Flaming Heart 00:04, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Nothing gets by you. --ஸ Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 00:23, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

Skill Videos[edit]

Night vision video was awesome. Grass rustling. Windmill creaking. Stars in the sky!? And then the last video. Couldn't get the video in hi-def, but I could have sworn that the woman's boobs shook as she ran - no surprises there obviously. Oh, and take note of how the guy in the pink underwear walks up the slope after coming out of the lake - yes that's right, he's got the walking uphill animation and even stands on an angle, instead of one foot in mid-air. It's those little things that make you certain that a good game is going to come out. -- Xu Davella 12:09, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

I concur. Shaking boobs is a very good sign that GW2 will be good. GW1 had it with elementalists and rits, and GW1 was, thusly, a very good game. --Riddle 23:20, 2 April 2011 (UTC)
Trivia: as you may noticed or not, in the second video where the sniper hit the grawl on the bridge, the scream of the grawl was the same scream sound-file you hear in almost 80% of all movies. The Wilhelm scream. User MysticGohan paw sig.pngMystic Gohan 19:18, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
I thought it sounded too human or something. --ஸ Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 22:19, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

April fools or not[edit]

Is it actually confirmed somewhere that the commando is an actual Anet april fools joke or not? because I can live with a commando in GW2 maybe just without the helicopters... Prince Grazel 22:25, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

If you have to ask, troll was succesful. - Infinite - talk 22:26, 2 April 2011 (UTC)

April Fools idea for GW2[edit]

Wouldnt it be awesome if ANet had a GW2 April Fools day quest where it was based off of Terminator 2 and you got to play as the Commando? XD Darkshine 18:30, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

It would be if GW2 was out... Aqua (T|C) 20:02, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
What if its the next april fools? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).


I thought this was real for a second!!!!! :)-- 22:23, 4 April 2011 (UTC) Thats because you are stupid

Anyone play RF:G?[edit]

I distinctly remember the Ostrich Hammer being an elaborate joke made by Voliton in promoting their game; and in the end, they ended up actually putting it in game as a prestige item; not to combare GW2 to RF:G though, that'd be like comparing Apples to Eggs. Just mentioning this because I seriously doubt this is the last we'll be seeing of the Commando, ANet loves referencing past humor. I wouldn't be surprised to see him as a minipet or something somewhere down the road in GW1 or 2. :) -- 08:03, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

I wont be surprised if next year when the game is live on april 1st they will have a Commando invasion XD,lol everyone fighting the commando's army. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).
They very likely will bring it back in some form or another, simply because it was such a popular concept, as a joke if not as an actual profession. And they got to have a lot of fun with it, from the sound of the blog post they made on it. --ஸ Kyoshi User Kyoshi sig2.png 15:45, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps ArenaNet plans on innovating the FPS genre next. </wishfulthinking> - Infinite - talk 15:46, 7 April 2011 (UTC)

categorize under professions?[edit]

it's clearly a profession, and existed as one for a whole day... even if it is a joke, we have no proof the mesmer is a playable profession either, but because it IS still a profession... shouldn't it go there? (doesn't need to be categorized as a scholar/adventurer/soldier because it's not playable, but still belongs as a page in it, right?) ~~ User Kiomadoushi sig.png Kiomadoushi 05:09, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

nope, just a joke Venom20 User Venom20-icon-0602-sm-black.png 12:27, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
I see your point, but the profession isn't going to be playable as you said, nor is it going to exist when the game is released. I think leaving it on the Professions reveal article is well enouugh. --Xu Davella 12:53, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
It was a joke, the profession was not even real for that 1 day. It was only featured in-game on GW1 (as a form, not a profession) and that information is trivial to GW2W. I do not support categorizing the commando as a profession. - Infinite - talk 17:21, 3 June 2011 (UTC)
On the page itself, it even says it's a gag profession, but it's still a profession - it doesn't need to appear on the profession nav bar or even skill nav bar or anything, but still be in the category for people looking across pages that are "professions". It may be a joke, but it's still a profession; that's how it belongs on the PROFESSION reveal page. Besides, people said it already - once all 8 professions are out, the profession reveal page will die. Nobody will look at it, and the poor commando, a joke PROFESSION will die in obscurity unless people are specifically looking for april fools jokes. ~~ User Kiomadoushi sig.png Kiomadoushi 17:58, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Mixed Feelings[edit]

This would've been a great class to have. It's not something you see in fantasy MMORPGs. But engineer was a better choice. This class would be overplayed and it seems to be too great--it outdoes other classes by a TON.But engineer is somewhat fresh, it has a cool mix of abilities (the whole alchemy part of them is great when mixed with mechanical things), etc. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).
