Given, I have (alas) not played beta. But seeing the last dozen of uploaded vids from beta'ers here, I am kinda concerned about the difficulty. Many vids show people downed, one shotted and wiped every half minute. Now, while I know some people love just that, I feel more than a little concern about this. Mostly, I play MMOs (and games) to have a good time. I do not want to worry too much or concentrate all the time, and I admit, losing really ticks me off quick.
But from what I see, GW2 in the vids of gamers looks terribly difficult. Like you must be constantly alert and on the move. Hm. I am just not sure if the game actually is for me. After the many letdowns from other MMOs, I am sort of reluctant to buy another MMO without seeing it in beta. Now I would have preordered, but it seems the GW2 WITH beta costs extra! And tbh... I just can't support that. Thats ridiculous. The "with beta" preorder on Amazon was 20 bucks more expensive. WTH?
So, I am really over the fence with this. Has any one probably a beta key spare? I would really like to experience this myself and not buy another MMO blind.
