you can download it early, so you get to stare at the pretty animated login screen as the game taunts you.

The amusing thing is that many, many people pre-order, grab beta key, then get a refund/cancel order.

Does no one think it's odd that in order to try the game before you buy it, you have to actually buy it?
WAT IS ZE PURPOS OF ZIS 'BETA'?

No MMO is released finished.
EVER.

The point of the beta isn't to try the game before you buy it. The point is to get a large number of players in real world situations that can report bugs that don't exist in test environments, but affect large portions of your playerbase. Betas are necessary. Similarly pre-orders are inevitable. Why not reward the people who pre-order with spots in the Beta if you know the number of pre-orders you allow is around the same number of beta testers you need. Cross promotion increases interest more than linearly.

It's to catch game breaking things. An MMO's fate is generally decided within the first 2 months after it's official launch. Even if it's in open beta for 3 years, it is still that 2 month window after official launch that generally decides the fate of the mmo. I'd definitely want to test a launch-like situation before my launch weekend turned into emergency server maintenance downtime.

Heh, I was just thinking what the window was to be able to tell if an MMO will make it or not. I thought 2 months as well.

My only disappointment so far is that it's hard to find groups in PVE. I've soloed all but one of the PVE instances I've done just because I can't find groups. Hopefully they make some way of grouping people.

And here's one last beta video from the Guild Wars 2 Beta. Took me almost 16h to encode it but it's finally done.

The end of beta for the last beta weekend of Guild Wars 2 was called "Hunger Royale". Well, and as the name suggests this has to with the best-selling book & movie "The Hunger Games". All players were split into teams. You constantly lose health (hunger) and need to find rations to get your health back. Since both your team and the enemy teams needed those rations we had to fight over them and the limited amount of munition. Until the first half of the event you respawened with your character when you died but after that you became a drone when you died. The drone could support your teams players by producing munition, establishing a shield and by scanning for stealth enemies.

Well, the beta is over and the game is out.
And here's the first video from me as well. icon_smile.gif

I decided to start the game with a brandnew character - a female Sylvari Necromancer. I think she is beautiful. icon_smile.gif
This video shows the generation of her and after that you can see the whole introduction which ends in a battle against a giant wood dragon in the Dream.

I made another video. This time fore of a guide for the Jump Puzzle starting in Morgan's Spiral in the Sylvari starting area Caledon Forest. Especially the last bit (where you'll hear some of my guild mates talking) is pretty hard. But with this video you hopefully should be able to do all the jumps and even fight your way through the Nightmare Sylvari on your own.

It's not in beta now but..

I grabbed an IRL copy.

I entered the game, played around a bit and:

It's ugly, plain looking, backwards even.

I can see the combat being potentially entertaining but when I get into an MMO all I want to do is PVP, I don't want to kill boars or collect eggs or any of that crap.

Though in saying that when I compared it to the original Guild Wars, Number 2 could have been so much better. The skills are so limited. The only thing that defines me from the other character using a sword and shield is my armor =/

It's a very polished game but Anet still has alot of work to do IMO.
