Feh, I hate it when companies require you to have a facebook account to see something... GW2 has released some video for people who signed up for the beta. But you can only see it if you "like" their page, and you can only do that if you have a facebook account. :pullhair:

I just placed my pre-purchase order for GW2 at my local Gamestop. Game is scheduled to be released in June. I did not get the collectors edition. No way I could justify $120+ for it.

The Beta is back on! For those of you who made chars from the last beta weekend, they are still there :D

I also had setup the Renegade Heroes guild - I should be in game as "Holy Toe Leto" or "Kabu Toe"

Ok, I'm in Blazeridge Mountains with a char called Pattons Skank. It took forever to download all the files, I will try to get on some more this weekend. So we have a RH guild already? Cool...

It's pretty good so far imo. I've been in on a few of the betas now, and while it is by no means an exhaustive list, here are some of my initial impressions.

Pros:

No competition for loot - everyone that contributes to the death of a mob gets credit and loot equal to how much they contributed.

Game Look - the game looks really great without being too taxing on your system.

Questing - hard to explain, but it just sort of flows - you don't actually pick up quests, you just go to an area, like someone's farm, and you'll see a set of objectives that you can do to help that person out. Often while you're doing that, a dynamic event will pop up in the zone, and everyone stops what they're doing and runs over to pitch in.

Cities - These cities in game are really, really massive. You could fit stormwind into one district of the human city in GW2. Things like trainers can be toggled to show up on the city map so that it's not too overwhelming.

No monthly fee - this has nothing to do with my beta experience, but it's pretty damn cool.

Cons:

They promised quests that would have an impact on the world as a whole, and while that is partially true, the quests reset shortly after you complete them and so does the impact of what you did.

Combat - it might seem a little limited initially to veteran mmo players, but as you play and find more weapon types it does get better. It's just a bit slow initially.

Questing - I know I listed it as a pro up there, but some of the instanced story quests are quite difficult. Those of you that played with me in WoW know that I'm a decent player, but even being a level or two ahead of the recommended level, I would still get my ass kicked on some of the story quests. This was due in large part to...

Level scaling - if you go to a low level zone, the game scales your level down to that of the area you're in, which imo really sucks. You don't feel very bad ass when you're lvl 60 and you're in the fight of your life trying to survive a pack of level 7 mobs.

I feel a bit ripped off, since I bought the game months ago to play the beta. Those cons break the game for me. I don't know if you can sell Guild Wars accounts, but if you know how and are interested in buying, I'll sell you mine at a discount.

Looks like some really good stuff up top, the "community quests" were implemented in Warhammer online and they were fun to do. But the level scaling seems really really bad.
