Hi guys. I am a fatasy role player dude from AoC. Playing it having fun with it and needless to say I have the hardware and balls to run AoC in all it's glory. However, I do love the medieval fantasy setting and was wondering if I should get another game to play on the side (I am also contemplating on TSW, but that is not fantasy). GW2 would therefore seem like a natural game to at least test for me. Now however I read a lot of bad stuff about it. That the game is like early alpha stage, terribly laggy and performancewise horrid. It took AoC a looong time before they got such problems under control so this makes me skeptical. Also yesterday I was over with a friend looking at the game. There was a few disconnects, but he could play it (with lag). But what was his gripe was that he did not like the clunkyness of the animations and the world graphics sort of. There was definitely something really weird going on with the shaddows (there were no depth to to the world). If I compared it's graphics to AoC, GW2 definitely fails in that respect. Perhaps it's unfair to compare the game to AoC which is graphicswise the most beutiful game, but I sort of expected more since it is 2012 and all.
So GW2 experts what is going on? Is this something you think they will get under control by the time they launch (is it end 2012?), or is this something that perhapsed is hyped way to hard (8.76 on the front page mind you, which is insanely high for a game that seemingly has some issues).
