Anyone else planning on getting this?
I played in the last beta and couldn't get into it.
It's cute how all MMO tards on the Internet think it's the next coming of Christ.
I was really into Guild Wars and then my desktop died and I ended up replacing it with a Macbook and sort of never picked it up again.
I would love to pick this up but my girlfriends laptop certainly can't run it and I don't have the budget to build or buy a desktop at the moment.
I played for a few hours last night, almost level 8.
Basically the game is awesome.
The combat system is awesome.
The ability system is awesome.
There is no "mob tagging", everyone attacking a mob gets credit.
The crafting system is pretty convoluted but you can learn all professions (but only use two at a time).
You can gather any crafting materials if you have the tool (there are 3 and they are consumable).
The "questing" system is awesome.
The world is pretty huge, at least from what I've seen so far.
And it's pretty.
I only got to play for about an hour last night, but so far the game seems really good.
I can't see our usual WoW raid forming tonight, considering the 5.0.4 patch and how everyone will be relearning their class.
Looking forward to playing more GW2 tonight.
What server is everyone on? We ought to form a guild.
My character is only L1 still, so I don't care where I end up, really. Just looking for other familiar folks to group with.

But I have a strong password so I should be good.

What would you be paying $70 for?
Their email verification system is broken, it says so on the website. I get the message in the launcher to verify my email address and the email link doesn't work- it doesn't stop you from playing though.

Got my account back...
I'm kind of disappointed with it for the fact that it looks a lot like WoW. There is a lot more to do like crafting and all, but it just seems like the game has lost some iconic realism.
I guess I'll just have to keep playing and see how I like it.
