    For what its worth, the WOD beta tester in my household is really enjoying the experience regardless of the missing content and has opened 12 tickets on what he's found so far.

    He's eagerly looking forward to the roll out of additional functionality currently missing and plans to continue to test until launch.

    As I'm not sure what is under NDA, all I can say is he's likes some of the changes, others have him puzzled and he is trying to understand them better, and he's going to miss some abilities that seem to be changing.

    Well there seems to be plenty of youtubers talking openly so not really sure how the NDA stacks up....

    The biggest problems are the same issues with the beginning of MOP, some classes work really well, others are a mess, at the moment.

    The other issue is the new secondary stats, it seems they've thrown out a lot of the rubbish and inserted alternative things which can't be modified so going down the line they'll end up being more issues of balance.

    Also the biggest thing and the most surprising and SPOILER ALERT!!!!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The beginning quests in WOD are really bad, like vanilla wow bad. Bit like Wildsatr it take a while to warm up...

     

    Spoiler gone...

     

    I will come back for WOD,I wasn't going to because I do like Wildstar but I can't see it lasting me more then a few months at most. Why? Guess I'll have to post about it ;)

    This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

    Most games companies don't do that during "beta". They expect people to have an expressed knowledge of issues in games, Know work arounds and for the most part know known exploits so that they can be addressed.

     

    Given that I've played wow since 2005 and still want to be a apart of this beta purely because I like to know where I can farm happily and exploit morons on the AH :P

    Streaming Wrath of the Lich King in 2008, that's a funny joke. Did you forget how new streaming video is? Even Cataclysm was just short youtube/quicktime clips, mainly from the emergingly popular British web personalities like TotalBiscuit.

    Streaming isnt a new concept...Ustream has been up since 2007 as well as other companies that have been running before that. Tons of groups would prodcast first kills I have been watching boss kills and tactics since BC.

    another crap result from the beta key sweepstakes... I guess all the streamers are making 100s of accounts to giveaway keys in their stream for these sweepstakes... cheaters seem to win all the time in these things...

    Nope it doesnt have to do with multiple accounts. I only have this one account and won the beta key sweepstakes two weeks in a row now.

    yea really amazing you dont AUTOMATICALLY win a key on a page with maybe sever 100k followers, and 1k keys being handed out.

    and that kids, is why you should have done your maths homework. because you wouldn't look less stupid now if knowing the slightest shit about propabilities.

     

     

    uh and for the record, i won a key, i didnt apply with 1k accounts or cheat in any way, i just got it. your theory is irrelevant. my hair is a betakey.

    I'll just log in at release and my whole screen will be a trail of griffons and have to reset the ui twice and get kicked off afew times. Then wait 3 days later and get a ghost town. That's what happened for me last expansion. Can't wait.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    played 5 hour beta. just hit boredom. its that same old stuff as always. get in new zone, kill some local mobs, kill some quest marks.

     

    last time i played WoW 7 month ago, new expasion dont have hook or that " wow awesome!" feel.

  • AvanahAvanah Member RarePosts: 1,509

    I stopped playing the Beta or the Live ever since I found Albion Online (Look at Sig). :)

    Wish this would have released in 2004 instead of WoW.

     

    Bye now. :)

    I feel quite pitty for I don't hav the invitation for beta, but I'm comforted when I think about I even I get the beta account, I still don't hav enough time to fully test these days. However, I feel sorry to those old players who do not have the chances but really wanna experience WoD beta, for I just notice some people sell the beta accounts in a rather high price.

    Too true, ive been stuck in my garrison for most of the day.     I should say stuck on the flight path mount in my garrison all day.

    I have to admit that this expansion is pretty depressing. I'm happy that I was able to experience the beta for it so I could avoid the prepurchase but this still leaves the questions of what am I going to play now that I do not even want to waste my money on WoW anymore....AA is having its problems. Wildstar is....Wildstar. Maybe Rift 3.0 next month but idk...Blade and Soul and Black Desert Online aren't until next year beta wise (I'm still laughing at NCSoft wanting to run Wildstar before Blade and Soul). The rest of this year is looking meh.
