How many of you are canceling your pre-orders?

Just curious to see if anyone is canceling their pre-order after this last beta event.

    I'll pre-order when Im not paying console prices for the game. Otherwise I'll get it later in a bargain bin.

    Already canceled, played the beta. HUGE DISSAPPOINTEMNT. Dull and stail just like the rest of the MMO's made these days.

    Oh boy, this thread is going to turn out so well.

     

    And out of curiosity OP, since you're clearly a fan of SWTOR, why did you make this post?

    Every hater here is going to have "cancelled their preorder".

     

    Theres always hundreds of people that never preordered a game that magically cancel non existent preorders when their whiney.

    Apparently stating the truth in my sig is "trolling"
    Sig typo fixed thanks to an observant stragen001.

    why cancel? game is freaking incredible.. honestly only issues I had were not being able to login till saturday evening due to server issues.. game is just to much fun and no monthly sub to boot 

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    So you played the beta even though you had previously made this statement:

     

    "Yeah and GW2 is still going to be carebear to the max. I'll play SWTOR before ever playing this craphole game with its carebear instance box pvp system. At least in SWTOR I can PvP without jumping into instance battlegrounds."

     

    I am so confused. Between the 19th and the 30th did you manage to buy and play SWTOR and then decide to give that up so you could prepurchase GW2 so you could play in the beta weekend?

    Please clarify, thanks in advance.

    Just curious why you would pre-purchase an mmo if they are dull and stail? I'm not flaming but I would like to consider it a learning answer! :D

    Didn't pre purchase, I'll buy it at launch though. I doubt Anet will miss the 10 people that "cancelled" after playing a beta test...

    I don't know why these people play betas then cry about lag/queue issues, just wait till launch fools. Then you can get mad and be right, instead of oh so wrong...

    I had to buy another copy since my girlfriend demanded it...

    Also 3 friends of mine were so impressed they're going to pre-purchase when the next BWE is announced.

    After my weekend beta, I've gathered 29 friends and family that weren't going to try it, that have now pre-purchased.

    I want to see what people think of the beta.  Looking at the poll it looks very positive.  Ohh and I am not a SWTOR fan.  I am a Shadowbane / Darkfall fanatic.  I cant kill my own side in any of these games.  However I do like population and in GW2 I can roam around slaughtering whoever I want in the RVR zones at least without paying a monthly fee.  Even the hardcore need a place to retire since there is no other good game out.

    I'm honestly in 2 mind overs the game.

     

    I haven't preordered yet, I've seen plenty of things i like, but also a few I'm not a fan of.

     

    Honestly think i'll just wait a bit after release before i make a decision over whether i want to buy this game or not.

    lucky i did not pre-purchase it. tried the beta from a friend's account and doesn't like it . i think i'll stick with diablo 3
  • AlusciaAluscia Toronto, ONPosts: 32Member

    I'm on the fence. The beta was enjoyable, but I couldn't help but feel that the tuning was WAYYY off for a lot of the events (and a lot of the story quests). This is only going to get much worse as people level through the zones and don't look back.

    I'd like to see better scaling of the events in level/intensity a-la-Rift. Love it or hate it, at least their dynamic zone-wide events were level-appropriate and scaled to match the available zone population.

    To bad Guild Wars 2 is carebear IMO. I'm waiting for Darkfall 2.0, if it actually ever happens. The Secret World has my attention right now.

    So instead of making a poll like "After the beta, are you glad that you pre-purchased GW2" you decided to make a poll about people cancelling it?

    At any rate, if you are genuinely interested in the game, there should be literally a ton of articles flooding out about WvWvW over the course of this week.

    "Loading screens" are not "instances".

    I may be wrong, but I thought you could not cancel your pre-order. I'm sure you could go through your credit card company and dispute the charges, but I thought that once you bought and registered your key you could not cancel it. 

     

    edit: sorry, I just read the title again. "Pre-Orders" I was thinking pre-purchase. Never mind my statement! :)

    OP, since any of the 1.5 million members in the forums have access to this poll, you're not gonna really see any honest numbers. You should post this on the official forums if you haven't already.   image

    My main concern is that it won't have $60 worth of PVE content.  And if I wait too long so that the price to gameplay is in line, then there won't be the critical mass of players to do the little PVE events with.   Still in the deciding phase,  but there's plenty of time.

    A poll there may also suffer bias, maybe even worse than one here.

    Those little events scale so you can do them all by your lonesome!

    I have converted people that were not going to play GW2 into people who are excited to play and will most likely prepurchase before the next BWE.
