    Well the engine hasn't been optimised yet, they have said this on a number of times.

    The water reflections look awesome and im happy with how the game looks even on low settings, WTB!

    Devs say allot of things
    So far they hold true to all their statements so im sure it'll be fine. I do agree however that a game should ideally look BAD when on low settings and great on high settings to make sure it runs smooth for everyone.

    OT: this looks amazing. Hope i can get into beta to see if i can run this game on my current 5 y/o PC, coz if i can't i need to get a new killer PC :P

Fun can't be quantified with straight-up data, and trying to use statistics to measure fun is a dangerous logical minefield.

    Engine looks cool. Also settings changing on the fly is very good thing. Not that I'n concerned about reloading game, but if you can tweak it right in the center of battle it is always nice to have =)

    Note that as they said, HD textures don't seem to be fully in the game yet. And that's kinda big.

    Don't worry, in the beta of a game, everything performs badly.

    Already have dual Radeon 6950s supporting 3D, so that's covered. :P

    Don't worry, in the beta of a game, everything performs badly.

    The only thing that limits graphics in beta is things being cut out, which makes the graphics worse (and look better in release) OR the debugging client that runs in the background which could possibly take up to 20% performance.


    You can't just magically make things run better and keep using beta as an excuse, it's not that simple.

    The most important thing to realize is, no matter what you experience you are never alone; no matter what you are struggling through, there is always someone who is more unfortunate.

    I can honestly see GW2 becoming the new standard in the MMO industry, for a lot of reasons. Might be interesting to see how Blizzard changes Wow in the future, based on what Anet does with GW2.

    Every time you have a question that begins with "Why?" that is about what other people prefer to do with their own goddamn time, come back here, and reread the first row of this post. That will ALWAYS be the answer to your question. Have a nice day.

    Well, it is known that GW2 doesn't "like" ATI cards. For example gtx460 is enough for highest settings (except WvWvW ;p). Before this beta it didn't even like AMD processors - so it's a progress ;]. Being a developer myself I know there is A LOT of ways to make the app run faster, problem is to make it run equally on wide range of hardware. Seeing as they are solving issues with every new build I'm confident that final product will be made of quality.

    As for HD textures, it's hard to tell. We should wait till the next beta event, if they are not included in the game by then - speculations can proceed.

    Damn that was a great video. And I'm loving that you can change the setting on the fly (best used during heavy performance events like WvW).
    I'm still thinking about it...
