    BUT I could care less about how many players they get, only care about me and my friends playing.

    Sorry I had to get my digs in at the doubters :P

    I know this is never gonna happen but maybe since I signed up in the first hour when the beta was announced, I'll get in on the first beta? Yeah I know that's not going to affect my chances at all :'(
    Hahahah, good one .
    Well I wish Theyd use time too. Signed seconds after the site went live (got mail instantly too).

    Yea, I just hope that we wont get the load of negative nancy's that kill the reputation of MMO's though. The market already has a hard time with everyone comparing every single MMO to WoW, and while GW2 is nothing of the sort, you just can't Guarantee that such people wont try to defame it.

    In the end though its really about how I enjoy the game, if it runs for a good 5-10 years I still will have a great experience with it.

    I cheated and told my friend to sign me up using his 2-3 year old computer specs.

    When you don't have a hundred servers you don't need millions of players to fill them. As long as they can make a profit and there's enough players to enjoy the game with, it's successful IMO.
    Just read today about DAoC and it seems really failed. They managed to grab 100k and now they have less then 5k players. I wouldn't want GW2 to be that unsuccessful. Only amazing player on this field is wow, and success/unsuccess is measured by how close another MMO to it. Honestly I didnt even know those games you named existed, and personaly I couldn't really care less about them.

    It has very few players now, but it was still successful.

    Your last sentence just says you haven't been around long enough to know about them. Where do you think GW2 got the idea for WvWvW? DAoCs Realm vs realm v realm.

    If they want a shitty computer to do beta test with, then I'll get in. One of the computers I used was around 7-8 years old.

    Well, my chances of getting into the beta just went down the drain...

    I think windows vista home 32 bit on my laptop will give me some chances

    I assume that since the sign up was only 50 hours that they are gonna start pretty early.

    Both good and bad news!
    Good because it means the support for this game is huge already.
    Bad because it means my chances of getting to help with the beta are miniscule.

    Kinda angry were at the 49th hour of the "48 hours only" beta signup period, and they haven't closed it down yet, because they want better numbers to give to the media.

    thanks for making everyone who signed up in the right amount of time's chances THAT MUCH LOWER.

    also, they should only allow one signup per IP address. ppl who sign up 6-7 times should just all automatically be denied beta access.

    Ye I know it. In fact thats why I checked what DAoC is. But I didn't even know about those games existance until I learned about GW2 =) I think successful ones are not those who invent something new and have a poor implementation, but those who can expand and good implement those new things. Well this is a part of wow success in my opinion aswell, and thats why so much people follow it.
