    I played all weekend on the beta and have to say that the game is absolutely awesome. The dynamic events in this game are true dynamic events and not the same system Rift implement after Guild Wars 2 announced they were working on it for the last 5 years. All MMO's share similar concepts since they are the same genre of game but GW2 takes everything above and beyond the next step and introduces a truly interactive experience to get into the combat and environment without having to worry about a skill bar of 1000 skills or who to talk to to get the next quest to kill 10 rats.

    This game played wonderfully, I have a 3 year old system with triple 24" HD monitors running duel GTX 480's, I played all weekend on SLI Surround mode and had absolutely no issues. The game flow was great, frame rates were perfect and the graphics were set to max and had no problems at all. Any lag i did see was short server lag and that was rare. I played in WvWvW with 50+ players in a single fight and didn't see any drop in frames. Hell I can't even play single player Skyrim or Crysis 2 without having to drop some of the settings when spanning triple monitors since those games didn't optimize their graphic performance. They really put a lot of effort into performance on this game and it's only in Beta. It looks beautiful and plays even better than it looks. If you had any issues with your systems performance, I would assume it's more your hardware or network connection, I played on 16MB download and 5mb Upload with a decent 3 year old system and the game played great.

    If you like MMO's and liked GW1 you'll love this game, and even if you didn't play GW1 this game is completely different play style wise, nostalgia wise it keeps the same lore and stories going and I loved seeing throwbacks to the days of Ascalon and Kryta, seeing the sunken ruins of Temple of the Ages and fighting the Underworld Gates with Aaxtes, or the Ascalon ruins and ghosts really brought me back. I foresee long long weekends and sleepless nights for me once this game comes.

    I just wish they would stop saying "so" at the beginning of almost every freaking sentence. What is this? This is getting toooo common. I need google what started this! Go back and listen to yourselves and listen for the word "so" and STOp IT!

    All needed now to really drive me crazy is the word "so" slong with that 'Uptalk rising inflection" you know - each sentence sounds like a question?

    Sooo - do you understand what I'm saying? Jeeez!

    No I believe Bill is right... they ripped stuff from Warhammer.... to rip something off... Warhammer had to come out first. However, allot of MMOs rip (steal) stuff from previous MMOs. As long as they steal the good stuff.... that will be great.

    The random events seem to be a mix of public quests (ala Warhammer Online) and Rift. My biggest concern (and YES I understand this is a BETA) is the polish of the game. Good thing there is no release date. I have been in more closed alphas and betas than I care to think of...

    Here is a list of my concerns:

    POLISH ... characters re not smooth enough...
    SKILLS... there seems so few and you level them up very fast....


    other than that it seems fun!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This has been a fun game in the beginning for me. If they can fix the simple problems such as their performance issue right now then it will be a solid game.

    @bill subscription MMO's are starting to die off because they charge the amount of the full game and then a hefty fee every month. Guild wars is different in that its free to play after your buy the game. SWTOR, Warhammer, and many others are failing fir the reason that its $60 for the game( with free first month) and then $15 a month after that causing the game to become prohibitively expensive in this bad economy.

    I'm probably not the first to say this, and i mean it with the best intentions, but some of this games features look like they were ripped directly from Warhammer online, especially the public quests and the world vs. world they were showing off earlier this week. I loved warhammer at launch, and I'm happy to see those features implemented in a new game. However a word of caution to both players and developers, those features require relatively high server populations to work correctly. the main reason warhammer failed (besides being a lil' too warcrafty) was because after launch month when server populations dwindeld the main parts of the game started to fail, and EA failed to shut down low pop servers quick enough, I truly want this game to succeed and I hope the developers on this game have learned from the past. hope to see you all in game when it launches!
