I think arenanet is sharing alot more information than any other serious company has shared in the past.
Open alpha test/demo for a highly anticipated title? Who else has done that?
How can you possibly share any more information at this stage than sharing the game itself to the whole world?
Arenanet is showing brilliance and dedication which hasn't been seen in video gaming in a about 2-3 years.
Actually Tiber....I think WoW and EQ2 are also showing quite alot of information and showing alot of screens and videos.....
I mean EQ2 has so many videos and its not even in Phase 1.....not that know of at least.....
But yes GW does look good.....but I do wish they had more screens and stuff.....and you can see below GW is one of my most antcipated games...under WoW and EQ2.....one plus for this game is the fact that there is no monthly fee......that is so cool....

GW had open 4 day alpha test to the public. Uhhmm but if you say the other 2 are showing more you must be right.
I got to play the E3 Alpha and I must say I was fully impressed with what I say! Everyone was locked at level 15, but the spells you could get, the PvP... truly amazing!
I was an elementist [whatever that was] / necro and I was to strong... my spells could easily knock you down... slow you down... take your life, etc... when I read that the E3 was in Alpha, I couldn't believe my eyes!
Plus once you buy the game, that's it... NO monthly fees!

Screens and videos are NOTHING compared to having actually gotten to play it. Sure, I'd like more info on GW. But consider that they've already gone so far above and beyond anything else in terms of opening up and community involvement, I can't complain.

Well oracle thing of it this way with the whole thing on "No monthly fee"
Ok....say they already have like......15 thousand in the game ok...they may have like....jsut say 1 mill...
1,000,000- 15,000985,000 left.
So not only do they have 985,00 left...they will make say......450,000 from people buying the game alone
and thats just say what they make on release....imagine...some poeple let their friends and family play..and bam even more are buying it and more and more....
and who knows jsut like EQ they may make and sell a strat guide.....or figures...or somehting and they will have plenty of money to run this game....
not to mention sice they are instanceing all zones.......it will cost them less a month for servers since the small amount of people in the zone=less memory use and stuff......
i absolutely think the game may be coming out next year. I mean everything seems to be done at a very slow but secure pace. Im thinking we wont be seeing this game in the shelfs until next year or xmas this year.

This is a sequence of characters intended to produce some profound mental effect, but it has failed.
I had (have) E3 GW withdrawal, I thought it was that good.
