    Lucky for me, I'm done exams on the 27th!

    I feel for you, I'd be sooo bummed if I had to study instead of play.

    See you in Divinity's Reach guys...

    Main MMO at the moment: Guild Wars 2
    Waiting for: Pathfinder Online

    I waited for FIVE years, so what do FEW months more mean? Nothing, that's the answer ;)

    I am one of those weird people that are not going to play before buying it(errr, holding it in my hands I mean!).

    By Asuryan, that will be the day! As well as 30th of April on Net... ;)

    Oh thank heavens that I know this now. I was about halfway through a letter to my mom about how I didn't know if Makii cared or not.  It was like living in a virtual purgatory of not knowing. I have a pile of daisy petals at my feet trying to deduce if Makii cares or Makii doesn't care. The batteries went dead in my magic 8 ball from asking that very question. I can now stop payment on the cheques I had given to psychics to deduce the answer. I can now move on to less important questions like the meaning of life. Thank you.

    Now I shall once again return to my excitement about playing in the beta!!!

    Last year I had 4 final exams and a paper due around this time.  This year, I have two finals, possibly only 1, and I have quite a bit of room to breathe in terms of the score I need to get the grade I want.  I'm still planning on devoting a large chunk of time next weekend to playing GW2, but this weekend would have been better.

    Ok someone has to explain me this.

    Amazon.de lists GW2 for € 49,- and GW2 with beta for € 75,-

    I mean... robbery? WTF. Sorry but I have no tolerance for beta access paid for 26 Euro.

     

    And wth is a pre-purchase? I know pre-order, but pre-purchase? Is that pre-pre-order? Can I cancel it? Does it cost more? Damn I wish the companies would stop always inventing new methods and new ordering scams like having 147 different boxes to order. >.<

    To be safer, you can buy the game from the website. It costs the full box price to "pre-purchase". You can probably cancel but, I'm not sure how easy of a process it is. Buying any of the different options from the guild wars 2 website will get you into the beta.



     

    This is not a game.

    Hm, ok a few issues tho.

    Why does the GW2 website sell the normal game for 54 Euro but Amazon for 49,-?

    And if I order it from the GW2 website, I have to pay additional delivery, at Amazon I am VIP customer and pay no delivery, only the box. Also, does ANet then sent it to me from overseas = extra cost + extra long delivery?

    So far I wasn't a friend of download only. Dunno why, but it sits wrong with me with big/expensive stuff. I buy cheap stuff via download, but a MMO I plan to play a longer time I want as a box + DVD, usually.

    Hm, so many questions.

    Ordering from the gW2 site gets you a digital copy, a download, so there would be no shipping fees.

    This will be the first real test to this games salt. General public are the hardest critics and tend to find the flaws in game play and mechanics very fast. I am looking foward to seeing what the masses say.  I took the gamble and my wife and I will be playing and I know I wont be pulling any punches. The GW fanboys will love or hate me come April 30th.
