Initial Impressions from GW2 Beta

| Friday, April 27, 2012
First impression: Took almost half an hour for Syl to log in because of various crashes and full servers.  She thought the loading screen was very nice and encouraged me to look at it, but I was playing WoW at the time and didn't bother to Google it.

At first it seemed like there would be quite a curve to catch up to, with not just a ton of new skills, but by the time she was online, someone was already level two.  I tried to convince her that she was hopelessly behind the curve, but she didn't heed my warning.

From what I could hear, it seems that her Norn was not just smoking hot, but also scantily clad.  This was either offensive or great.

Performance wasn't great, but let's face it: it's a beta.  That's one of the things to fix.  So no whining about performance!  It should be all uphill from here.

But the gameplay is what matters!  So let's get to that: There are a ton of abilities.  They change with the weapon you have.  It sounded cool.

Unfortunately, the night ended on a low note, with a disconnect, and by then it was past 1am so that was the end of the night.  All in all, it sounds pretty good and I'm looking forward to giving you more early-breaking third-hand information on it.

After that I spent the evening weeping and hoping they'd sell more pre-purchases for beta access.
