Let us know what you think of it. There are more and more games available for free-to-play these days, so wondering if it's worth forking out money for GW2. I just started playing some Lord of the Rings Online and, well, it seems almost identical to WoW but it's completely free, which is a bonus.

I don't mind spending money on a game but I refuse to pay a monthly fee anymore and I think most people who have been playing MMO's for the past 10-15 years feel the same way. I fell asleep Friday night about 30min before the start so when I got on Saturday morning the servers I was trying to get on were full. Sucks but whatever, I enjoyed the beta. I leveled 2 toons to 10 and a 3rd to 8 over the course of the weekend. I only encountered one area that bugged out on me over the course of the weekend. Some people were complaining about the fps but I stayed 40-60fps at 2560x1440 with a few dips lower in WvWvW pvp. The animations for spells/abilities are a little to much in the pvp, distracting to me, seemed like fireworks going off on my screen. Anyhow, I think I will definitely get my $60 worth out of the game. I am looking forward to the full release but with Diablo 3 coming out I can wait a while Smile

I was a bit disappointed to be honest. I guess I am just too used to the traditional style of mmos. GW2 has a long way to come before being ready for launch. It's missing so many features people are used to.

If you like jump in and kill PvP (console style, everyone is equally geared) then it might be the game for you. If you like long, slow character progression and to be rewarded for putting in the time, you might be pretty disappointed.

Make no mistake, this is a PvP game. There are no plans for end game raiding. It's got a personal storyline (aka swtor) and a public quest system (aka warhammer) for PvE.

I'll keep playing future betas and watching for improvements. It has potential.

Yeah if you were expecting it to be a traditional MMO you might have been a little disappointed. I knew going in to it that it was not going to be like traditional MMO's but then the first one wasn't either. To be honest I am burned out on the traditional MMO and I am to busy these days to sink that much time in a game. For one my wife would probably leave me Razz It does need much more work but it seemed more finished and had less problems then many beta's I have been in before.

I come from a kind of a hybrid FPS-RPG background, and I think it looks great! Especially World V World. Beta on youtu.be here: http://is.gd/uYA2R6
