Okay, so the servers are down because of a bug that causes soulbound items for one character to be soulbound to another character. I agree with forums and twitter: they should just make everything account bound. Problem solved.

They should make everything tradeable!

This is a shame, I haven't done my dailies yet because I was really looking forward to playing desert borderland :(

It looks like anet is trying to plant a battle standard:

This is an update to the situation where soulbound items have been incorrectly soulbound to the wrong characters. After further investigation we’ve determined that there is damage to almost all character records that were played this morning, not just to those who transferred soulbound items to or from a bank. To repair the damage, we will have to roll back the state of the game and characters to prior to this morning’s release.
No one wants to lose a play session’s progress. We apologize for this. I’m sure you’ll also have questions about exactly what a rollback means to you. The general answer is that everything about the game state, including things like trading post transactions, will be restored to how it was prior to this morning’s release. The only unusual case will be that if you purchased the game or purchased gems this morning, you’ll still get your purchase.

The process of rolling back and then validating everything to bring the game back up will take hours. We’ll keep you updated. There will be a period of time when these forums will be unavailable, but we’ll post updates through other channels.

Mo

We might end up missing guild missions tonight.

my word. rollback and everything. looks like it will be down for hours.

i have to say, i'm impressed at how up front they are being about the problems, and how quickly they work to fix stuff.

*twitches at downtime anyhow*

Yeah, it's unlikely to happen tonight.  They're taking the GW2 forums offline now to continue the rollback, but the language they used doesn't make it sound like they even... started.

In order to correct the issue that occurred earlier today, we need to take the forum log-in system offline for a short while to allow continued work on the issue and prepare for the roll-back. You will be able to read the forums while log-in is unavailable.

So, thanks to the server being down yesterday, Saint and I decided to play GW1, and now I want to finish the story to better understand what's happened in GW2. (I'm a sucker for storylines, and I love the GW story. When I have the money, I'm seriously considering getting the books.) We will be back on GW2 (we've got too many ascended and legendaries building to give up, and I want to see where they go with LS3). That plus we really like this guild and are still seriously considering switching to Sea of Sorrows server. He's got some level 20 characters he's offered to run with me to get through GW1. We have all 3 (Prophecies...the second one, and Nightfall. I'm horrible with names) so this might take a few days, but I promise we will be back.

I only play for the wvw so I don't have an appreciation for the story other than to get those annoying green arrows off my screen.  When I did the HoT story I had no idea who half the people were, then was supposed to feel emotion for the norn chick who got vinetooth'd.

It was at that point that I decided that Lord Mordremoth was worthy of worship and am hoping a Sylvari Elite is added to transform me into a Vinetooth.

But seriously, make a petition thread!
