I can get into the PvP mini-games but not WvWvW. How do you get into WvWvW?

Alright, well, I started at 3PM and stopped just now, so I played for at least 8 hours, and those 8 hours gave me a good feel for the beta so far. There are still tons of things I don't know about, but here's just my summary so far.

Combat:

Combat is pretty awesome, it's not your traditional MMO combat system at all, really. There's still "click this, press this", but it's a really fluid and beautiful system considering you can dodge a majority of every race's attacks / spells aside from the ones that are your typical click and shoot, but those can be LoS'd (line of sighted, aka, run behind an object and it'll hit that object).

Questing:

I played for at least 8 hours, and during those 8 hours, I can safely say without hopefully being wrong, in this game that there are no quests, just the main story line, and then events all around the world, which can be repeated. I really like this considering quests are so boring, and they are literally in every MMO and it just gets so old after awhile.

Events:

Events are crazy fun, especially if you're fighting an event boss or whatever they're called, where it takes a few minutes and a couple dozen people to bring down this event boss. People are constantly dying everywhere and you need to focus on bringing the dead back up rather than just tunneling the boss down, because that's not the way it works.

You pretty much find events by finding scouts along the world that will point out event locations, or just by exploring.

Story:

I was on Skype with a friend the entire 8 hours, so I literally have no idea what my story is even about, or what I did. Therefore, I cannot comment on it, all I know is it was awesome. I was Human.

Graphics / General Performance:

This is where it got interesting, as I hope the actual release, or even the next beta weekend isn't like this. So far I've read that even people with great systems (like mine and just about everyone here at OCN) is having poor / bad performance. I had to lower shadows and some other misc. settings for the game to even be at a somewhat desirable framerate, and even then, it was still pretty poor, especially in event situations. I also had to disable crossfire, another reason I'm buying a 7950 next week, multi-gpu setups are entirely useless 99% of the time, especially with betas and new releases.

Network wise, it was pretty poor too. However, that's unfortunately sort of expected with a beta this large and with a lot of servers being full / high popularity. I do give kudos though, I think the server only mass-disconnected once.

PvP:

I did one battleground or whatever you call it in this game, and it was very chaotic, but of course it was fun chaotic, I just had no idea what was going on. I'll have to further comment on this later.

Overall, I am very satisfied, and I hope the next beta weekend is smooth regarding framerate.

It's really too early to tell for me. All I can say is, those 8 hours alone were worth my $60.

I hope the beta weekends from this point on are actually every weekend. I guess it will all depend on how much stuff they want to get fixed.

Yeah, I'm going to try a Necromancer soon. I've been playing Elementalist all day. Not really interested in melee races at the moment.

I highly doubt they will be every weekend they said they would have a couple BWE.
