Who's with me?

The NDA was lifted on their latest closed beta (for press only) weekend, and wow - the hype was true.

A few reviews here:

http://kotaku.com/5886430/ten-things-i-learned-from-the-guild-wars-2-beta-weekend

I will definitely be playing when it comes out, anybody else coming along?

Can't wait to get my hands on it, I have high hopes to switch over if servers are stable. Rift was already pretty cool but GW2 seems to have all the good stuff combined. Is there already a release date? Can we play the beta if preorder or only 3 days head start + the goodies?

No release date yet, as far as I've heard.

We will have access to all beta weekends + 3 days head start. No idea how many beta weekends there will be, but at least there's one planned for late April.

Hopefully the lag from China won't be a PITA though.

Got my hands on the pre order digital deluxe edition! For those who want to buy it consider to use your credit card as PayPal had a lot of problems for many people.

Now it's time to wait for the beta event.

Got the digital deluxe edition as well. Not sure if it was worth the extra $20 (for basically a pet and an elite skill you can only use at level 30), but why the hell not.

I heard they're having a stress test this Friday (for testers of the previous beta only), which could mean they're preparing for next week's BWE. In any case, hope to see you on!

And more people come join us!

If anybody is interested, I am *trying* to start a community for oceanic GW2 players here: http://www.anook.com/team/oceanic-guild-wars-2-community

This is NOT a guild, but more of a gaming forum/social area for players to share and gather.

(So far I'm the only member though)

Great was thinking about the same will register later. You should post it on the guild wars forum or twitter I see many oversee player doing adverts for their specific country.

I've been posting on the forums of various oceanic GW2 guilds, as well as Reddit.

I definitely want to get a group of us together as guild recruitment/finding guilds, and more importantly info sharing, will be that much easier.

Finally good news:

We’re counting the days until the first public Guild Wars 2 Beta Weekend Event, which begins on Friday, April 27, at noon PDT (GMT-7) and ends on Sunday, April 29, at 11:59 p.m. PDT (GMT-7). Hundreds of thousands of players from around the world will get their first taste of Guild Wars 2—and rest assured, we’ll be playing alongside them!


I will participate the beta, and hope to see some of you ingame to enjoy GW2.
Not sure how the group or friend system will work but I propably roll a necro first named necrostitch.

It starts at 3am on Saturday for us, so I'll probably just get up at 5am and play all the day.

Luckily the wife works that day due to how her company set up the China Labor Day holiday.

Looks like people have chosen Sea of Sorrows as the oceanic server. But there's also some noise for Anvil Rock. I'll be on SoS myself as the name really fits us oceanic players.

I will hope I can access oceanic server and will not be Boyd to the European server as I bought the German client. Did you get already the invite mail for the BW?

Yes, got the email yesterday afternoon. Wanted to download it last night, but had internet issues. Whole thing is about 14-15GB.

Well there's still time. You can even get started on the download beforehand: http://cloudfront.guildwars2.com/client/Gw2.exe

Found this Q&A somewhere:

Q: Is my account region locked? I was only allowed to pick NA servers last Beta despite being from the EU.
A: When you log in to the game for the first time, you will have the opportunity to pick any available server, or home world. If you choose to select a home world that is in a different region from where you purchased your game, you will be logged out for a short period of time while your account is moved to your new region.


Also, since it seems like nobody else from here will be playing GW2, I'm gonna join these guys during the BWE: http://www.imtwelve.com/forum/12213-twelve-beta-weekend-group-ups and it looks like they'll be going to the "Isle of Janthir" server. You are obviously welcome to join us, unless you know some people who will be playing in Sea of Sorrows.
