    I want to add that the blog said those who had pre purchased any edition of the game, will receive an e-mail next week with download instructions.

    Looking forward to it!

    Question, I pre-purchased, did the registration it told me to in my email, added the code, so I'm in yay. My question is though, do I still need to go to the NCSoft website and create an account and use the code there as well? I haven't ever had an account with them, just wondering.

    You never had to have an NCSoft account to play Guild Wars, so it wouldn't surprise me if the same is true with GW2

    I hope not cause I have done exactly like you have. There was no more information except for register on ANets beta page that I saw

    I've never played an mmo that wasn't subscription based, so this is a bit new to me, wanted to make sure. I like to have everything done as soon as possible so I am done and ready to play on launch day.

    I wonder if the Norn racials are in too.

    You stay sassy!

    They will with 99% certainty

    Edit: Oh sorry I read Norn race... I still think it's valid number though since they were in the last beta

    No NDA is a bit surprising. Makes me think release date is end of June. We might get actual non fanboi opinions of the game finally.

    Yeah, but I do not even begin to believe devs when they say half the crap they says nowadays.

    only devs that lied to me were the warhammer guys. everyone else pretty much stuck to their word.
