post #1751 of 10385
Just got the buy now to secure your place in the beta email, so tempted to buy it =/
Not sure if it's worth it I always love beta testing and getting an early headstart, but I didn't enjoy gw1 that much tho I hear this is nothing like the first one.
I only played gw1 when it was first out but there was just not enough content imo at the start, you were max level in less than the first week.
Hmmm I will probally end up ordering it by the end of the night haha.

I really think the only things carrying over from GW1 is the lore/story and some of the classes. All the gameplay mechanics, leveling, quests, traits, and everything else is completely different.

I can't believe it's almost friday!

I'm in the process of setting up my dxtory to record some good 1080p videos of the beta. I think I'll be doing a whole lot of PvP and WvW.

I didn't enjoy GW1 either and regret having spent the money on it. Coming from a traditional MMO setting it was difficult to get into. Plus, lack of jumping irked me.

Guild wars was my first and only MMO so that's all i'm used to. Some things i'm going to have a hard time transitioning to in GW2. Seems now that the skills with weapons there is a lack of an overall number of skills. Maybe i'm stuck in my GW ways but i like to be able to customize my skill bar as i see fit, not have particular sections reserved for this and that, though i guess that's the tradeoff with not having a dedicated healer, so i understand there.

I hate the ranger animations and flare behind the arrow as it flies through the air. Looks cartoonish to me and it's really bugging me. frown.gif I have a feeling i'll miss secondary professions as well.

other than that i'm stoked.

I am skipping this game due to this "prepurchase" system they're trying to force onto the gaming communities.

What do you mean? By allowing you early beta access by pre-purchasing? I can understand not wanting to pre-purchase for the sake of not wasting money but you can always try the game when it comes out to see if you like it or not. I wouldn't skip it over something as trivial as that.

Yup. Just keep in mind that the beta client is quite large (13GB+) so if you have a slow internet connection then it could take a long time to download, and you could miss the opening of the beta.

Speaking of beta clients, it appears that ArenaNet has placed it onto the update server. However, it hasn't been officially been announced yet. I have a feeling that we will get a link for it either later today or tomorrow.

Lucky for us they are using Amazon's CloudFront service to serve the file so we don't have to deal with AreanaNet's incredibly slow downloads. *cough* GW1 */cough* tongue.gif
