    Damn it, I'm gonna be gone during the 27-29 weekend!

    TBH though, from what I've seen, my hope isn't too high for this game. Everything sounds awesome in concept, but in game videos everything looked kind of generic and cookie cutter. Same as Diablo 3 Beta. Did anyone try that out last weekend?

    Edit: Ah, I thought it was an Open Beta event like Diablo 3, but you have to have a pre-order or what? Any other way of getting in?

    Ummmm... I still haven't received a download link. What the fudge?

    EDIT: I saw their post on facebook, and despite not getting an e-mail I'm downloading the client now. I'll be on probably for a little VERY late on Friday, and then I'll be around for hopefully most of the afternoon/evening on Saturday.

    Sleepy: In order to be guaranteed a spot in the beta you must pre-purchase the game. I have my worries about the game too, but it's been years since a good game came out for groups of people to enjoy together, we're due for one.

    Sleepy, I've been in the beta for D3 for almost 2 months now and I gotta say it's Diablo :p Wasn't sure at the begining but it has grown on me. I'm really looking forward to it.

    Taz, looks like the GuildWars2guru community is looking to be in the Yak's Bend server, there might be a slight problem in population. Yak's was also my first pick :(

    I think the Server Name has nothing to do with where you start. They could have called them Server 1, 2, 3 etc..

    No they don't. Where you start and how depends on your character's race and whatever other decisions you take while creating it.

    Dang, I don't think I'll pre-order, but tell me how the beta goes. Have you considered any other games like TERA?

    Eh, even though I only played for 3 days, I played through the 30 minute section that the beta is like 10-15 times. I sadly disagree with you on it. :(

    From what I heard, Tera's questing is pretty boring. It does have nice graphics and a nice combat system. I'm also not a fan of paying $15/month to play a game.

    Yes, Monthly fees is a no-no. I need the ability to come and go. I would need to have a lot of time to play to justify $15/mo.

    Human Necro aka Miss Hissy Fit??? lol. Apparently a lot of people are having issues. If I can I'll try to get log in when I get home. Other than that I won't have any time til late tonight or sometime tomorrow.

    EDIT: I get a "Transaction in Progress" error when trying to create a character. Perfect! I'll try again tonight. But fyi, I picked Ehmry Bay.

    Created the BuA Guild. Very Choppy at times. Turned down alot of the Graphics helped a wee bit. Hard to figure out fighting stuff and attacking. Keep using the GW commands. LOL Off to get and then eat dinner back on later.

    It's okay so far. Will take a little getting used to the combat. Hard to tell if you're doing anything sometimes. Definitely can't be played one-handed anymore haha. Seems like it may be more difficult to find a suitable weapon.

    Server is down again btw :(

    My first impression was WTF.. There was so many issues to overcome Lag being the most and attacking the second. Now I am kind of impressed. I really like the jumping and swimming. After we played Sunday with the group and explored, attacked etc it was fun. You came across other folks but you could see the group still. Some improvements would be free zoning, Red Dots for enemy, Agro Bubble, Target Calling.. There are few more things from GW I liked that would be nice if they carried over. Maybe these will be addressed in the future.

    All in All pretty happy with the game...:D
