I've closed beta tested many, many games and would love to give my feedback on GW2 as it's my most anticipated game.



I believe the closed beta will be test krewe only.

Yeah I get the feeling the closed beta will be more closed down than other closed betas where you may be able to get keys and such. Probably restricted to trusted reporters, friends and family. Open beta is when I expect for it to be opened up to the public which I can't wait for.

isnt Guild Wars 2 based off DX9 lol

I doubt any PC today will haev an issue with it...

if its anything like GW 1, then there will be no usefull Massive PvP, so there should be no reason why GTX 275 and newer with quad core and 4+ gb of ram couldnt handle

Isn't The Witcher 2 DX9 aswell?

 

And there is upto at least 500 player WvW PvP according to the article (if I read it right).

 

I say wait until the game is released before making final judgments on requirements. Might run it but I don't think it would max it.

Wrong.

Quote:
Can I get into the alpha test?
Alpha test is for friends and family only, and is already in progress. [3]

So can I beta test instead?
Beta testing will start closer to the release of the game than for Guild Wars 1. Closed beta testing is on schedule to start before the end of 2011.[4]

You can't sign up for the beta test at the moment - any site which claims you can is trying to scam you.
The only place which will allow you to sign up for a Guild Wars 2 beta test is the official Guild Wars 2 website; the beta will be announced through the newsletter on the main site, so if you aren't checking the news frequently but want to participate, sign up for the newsletter to be notified quickly when it happens.

martin kerstein and jon peters reinforced it today, no one is getting in the closed beta. it was said word for word that there is no application process and it's not open to the public. lol...it starts in less than 48 hours, i don't know how you could entertain the though that there's gonna be sign ups still.

btw about performance, it runs on the GW engine, with DX10 support. many machines at PAX and gamescom had gtx 460's maxing it out, with more than 60fps constantly.
