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.

 

 


I played aion 1.5 (dx9 back in sept 2009) and back then I had a E8500 @ 4.2ghz, 8gb ddr2 800 and a 1gb gts250. During fort sieges when there are 200 players vs 200 players, I get like 8-12 fps. I was still using my old 17in LCD monitor back then with 1280x1024. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Hopefully gw2 will run better than aion assuming they both use dx9.

Eh, I don't care if I get in or not, it's just good news to me that we're actually seeing the game get closer and closer to open beta. For awhile I was skeptical with the lack of news.

Hopefully ill be playing GW2 in less than 6month =) But then D3 may release at the same time .. meh

I hope closed beta isn't too long (2 months max I pray). I want open beta to start soon.

The sooner open beta starts the sooner the game can release.

I got into the beta for the original Guild Wars via Fileplanet. Wow, that was such a long time ago...

I'm expecting this closed beta to be extremely selective (namely active community members, press, mods on gaming sites, etc.). I would say GW2 is around 6 months from launching.

Hopefully gw2 will run better than aion assuming they both use dx9.

Aion is too unoptimized. I've played games with 500+ people on screen and my CPU and GPU breeze through it.

Current beta is mostly like blizzard's F&F beta's, so its fairly selective but based on how it goes, they are considering opening it up slowly or quickly, that hasn't been confirmed. I hope the current beta is going extremely smooth, so that I could have a chance to play before launch which hasn't been stated frown.gif
