damn it's polished and does a lot of fun actually...

and how did they manange to make this game so much lagfree ? did anyone experience lags yet? it plays like a solid single player game with no lags...

I got my pre-order on april 14 and expected to see another world of warcraft clone and some elements are really simply copied from WoW, but this game is really a lot of fun and the world looks amazing...

character creation is a little weak though :)

    lol, what really amazed me was the first open to everyone e3 world alpha test of guild wars.  Tons and tons of players on at the same time, 0 crashes, 0 lag.  But yeah, looks like itll be a smooth launch when retail hits live for LoTRo

    low lag probably a result of using an in-house recycled engine. It's the same one they used in DDO, and there may be some pieces of AC2 code in there? (just guessing on ac2 part, but DDO info I read somewhere).



    Pros:

    - code has been around and used longer, so it's been debugged longer, so should be cleaner.

    - code is all in-house, so no limit to what a dev can do. (as opposed to licensing third party software... well, license deals probably give the devs access to the engine source, but ACCESS is not quite as easy to use as OWNING/CREATED).



    The Cons are of course longer initial development. But if you spread that dev work over multiple games, then it could pay off.

    Who is with ya?  Where ya been?  

    Couldn't agree with you more, this is how a game should be looking  and running four days prior to release.  The fact that there has been an open beta for this long speaks for itself.  Turbine has eliminated the need for peeps to weed through the reviews of fanbois and haters.  If your curious about the game, download it and try it out, plain and simple. Turbine has not lost many cool points, everything they have done with this game is top notch imo.  I know this has been touched on in other posts, but, damn, whats wrong with them?  Don't they know that we MMORPG players are gluttons for punishment?
