This last stress test was one of the best optimized yet, and it definitely looks and feels like it's ready for release. With my sig rig, and my CPU downclocked to stock (due to Florida summer, whee), I'm hitting 45-75 FPS in open areas on High settings, FXAA and Native sampling with best filtering and hi-res character models. In WvW and PvP in general, as well as crowded events, I just dip into the 35-50 range, which is pretty darn fantastic. I'm running the 12.8 drivers, btw.

I really can't wait for this head start to begin. I've been chomping at the bit for this game for a while, and the more I play it and see how it's changed from build to build, I get the feeling that this isn't going to be your normal MMO where the devs give the feeling of apathy. I've never seen a dev team be so active and so responsive to feedback and the community as a whole and I just believe that it bodes well for the quality and life of the game.

Still undecided as far as server goes, but definitely know what I'm going to play:

Sylvari Guardian
Nord Engineer
Human Mesmer
Charr Thief

You obvious needs the game to PLAY the classes.

You don't need character slots to START the game like a car key and you DO pay extra if you want it to have remote start or other fancy tricks. You pay extra for an automatic transmission, fancy radio, leather, floor mats, etc, and advertises people dropping giant rocks in the back or sliding around on a track and then says "It can't really do this, just a commercial, drive safe and don't put rocks in your car" but cars aren't games so the analogy is silly and falls apart depending on peoples personal value of things.

And you can play all of them anyway, you just can't play all 8 at the same time. You get 5 slots because there are 5 races so you can play through all 5 races stories and you don't get screwed out of any major content. I'll probably be keeping 4 slots full of my favorite professions and keep the 5th open for making/deleting the other classes for sPvP as my mood changes on which class is my 5th favorite.

You can also buy char slots with gems and you can get gems with gold. So you might even be able to buy an additional slot with in game gold after you play through your first 5 characters if you REALLY then feel the urge to go on play a 6th+ class. Unless gems are insanely expensive, which may very well end up being the case, then you would have to be an AH guru.

I have no problem paying money for extra character slots if I want them.

The problem I have with the game is that they allow people to buy stupid cosmetic items like Aviator sunglasses. It's not even the actual micro transaction process that annoys me, I understand they want to make extra money to keep the game going, but selling stupid items like aviator sunglasses ruins the fantasy feel for me.

I want Ozzy's shades!


My main in GW1 already looks like Geddy Lee:


I'm OK with things like sunglasses. Boxing gloves are alright I guess... They already have the GW2 Dragon Logo T-Shirts. I think thus far they know where to draw the line but I can certainly understand your sentiment.

LOL. I actually kind of agree with this. I'm really hoping I never have to see those stupid slotted sunglasses or other trashy pop-culture stuff everywhere. Lord help them if I see a rageface mask. If the Aviators are as far as they go, I can live with that. I'm not even one of those crazy people who complains that everything in a game is immersion breaking, but everything else does such a good fitting the theme of the game.

At the end of the day, its a small price to pay for no subfee though.
