I agree, I wasn't digging it much when I first started but that was largely due to really bad performance. Although now they fixed something after the first day and it's running fairly smooth. I can now dig into the combat system and I like what I see.

I have to say I love this game it is probably the best mmorpg I ever played. I mean yeah it has it flaws, but for one it is in beta also no game can be perfect I have a feeling when this finally releases I am sure it will be very close though. I loved every single minute of it I played this weekend which never got boring. At first the combat seemed weird but I grew used to it pretty fast. However I am calling it quits for this weekend I played enough to test out everything I wanted to and I don't want to invest too much more time in it as all will be wiped when the game releases. I will sum it up I am glad I pre-purchased the game and I am sure when it comes out I will be playing it way too much and having alot of more fun with it. I give this game a 10/10 for it's awesomeness =D

I felt the same exact way. I restrained myself from saying anything bad or thinking the game is crap because I knew all the problems was due to the crazy amount of lag and performance issues when it launched yesterday.

Now I'm getting solid 30fps everywhere, 90+ fps in pvp battlegrounds, and even solid 30fps using nvidia surround with everything maxed. Not to mention spells not delaying 1-2s like they were yesterday makes the game feel a lot more smooth. So far GW2 has come to be everything I've been hoping for thumb.gif

I’m only playing PVE this beta weekend, so wipe PVP feedback from your mind.

I rolled a Charr Warrior and put all my focus on him this weekend. The first 2 hours I found incredibly boring and fustrating, and I knew what to expect with GW2, so I was surprised I wasn’t enjoying it. I quit the game for a break because I just wasn’t having fun. My second time playing I had a little more fun but something still wasn’t quite right, I ended up quitting after another few hours due to boredom.

Now on my 3rd attempt to enjoy the game, something amazing happened. I started to have lots of fun, the combat was flowing naturally for me now. I was able to finally take out 2-3 mobs of equal level in melee combat when it use to destroy me. I went from absolutely hating the game, to absolutely loving it. I feel it’s the case with many of the people on here giving bad feedback. Just play more, let the game grow on you, and starting thinking outside of the box. Spamming 2-4 skills DOES NOT mean more damage output in this game, sooner more people realize that, the more fun they will start having. 1 is your main damage output, 2-4 is conditional skills used in certain situations. If a weapon doesn’t have the conditional skills you need right then, you switch to a weapon that does.

I’ve played around 30 hours this weekend, and ended up at level 22. 3 zones at 100% completion. I’m calling it quits here because I don’t want to do much more with a wipe so close. The game is amazing, and I hope it succeeds. However, I find most MMO gamers want a casual experience and GW2’s combat will be to challenging for them to grasp. I believe that is the main threat to this game’s success, not enough people that take the time to understand the combat. I knew what to expect, watched many videos, and still it took me 6 hours of boredom to finally figure the groove out.

Looking forward to the next BWE.

My game looks about 20x better than those shots. I assume he didn't use the high quality screenshot option (by default it's low quality), and his settings probably aren't maxed. The game is very CPU limited right now.. so it takes a very good processor to max it.

For a game that constantly has over 100 players and 100 monsters on screen at once, the graphics are really good.

Well said. I never really got frustrated as i expected a huge learning curve for myself simply due to the fact I have only played GW and never any other MMO. So it was like starting all over again. Other than that once you get the hang of it as you said it's hard to put down. Switching weapons is vital as well as extremely deadly. Love using staff and switching to the greatsword with my guardian.

My screenshots were on medium with terrain and reflections on low, and it still looks good IMO. It also runs on my laptop (i7) better than my desktop (sig rig) though i'm running 1366x768 on the laptop. Can't get enough of the game really. Though i must admit i do miss mission that GW had, I guess thats were dynamic events tie into story?

Before i got off tonight me and about 20 or 30 other players were fighting one boss and it took 20+ minutes to take him down. And at that point as Vega said it look like fireworks everywhere lol. Also was getting maybe 15fps. I was putting down flames for rangers and engys and people kept running out of the circle as if i was hurting them i didn't get it.

Considering I really don't know how any abilities work yet in PvP (because you're max level), and what enemy abilities look like, and what those abilities do / mean, yeah... it's hectic.
