    After Trying the BWE, Has Your Opinion on Purchasing GW2 Changed?

    Interested to see whether people are either more interested, or less interested after getting access to a BWE that has had both very good reviews, but also a lot of complaints from players about what they see as game breaking problems.

    For a lot of people this may have dispelled the "hype cloud" they had built up around their eyes before getting to see GW2, for others maybe they will have gone in sceptical, but come out incredibly excited. How have your opinions changed based on the BWE?

    Please all do remember though, this has been an early stage demo, but at the same time it is still a BETA test, so hopefully those kinks people are seeing will get ironed out before release.

    I'm still glad I pre-purchased. I've had a lot of fun and am quite excited for the full release.

    I am more interested and glad I have already purchased the game. I haven't put a lot of time on any one thing in the beta because I know it will be wiped out but I've put enough effort into it to know that I really enjoy how the game plays and can't wait for the final product.

    Yeah I had a strict limit of level 5 on any one character. I don't want to burn myself out in the beta. I probably won't even play any remaining BWEs between now and launch.

    I really enjoyed the preview this weekend. Lag was a big problem at first but gameplay smoothed out later. The more I played the more I got into it; now I look forward to exploring a HUGE world! It's great to be back in Tyria again!

    So far, I love the game. I just really hope all these small issues I've been finding get fixed. Otherwise, I find it really enjoyable and Arenanet definitely made some mecahnics I'll miss seeing when I go play other RPGs/MMOs.

    (Some examples of things I'd love to see fixed)
    - Enemies that don't lose HP (Only seen in WvW)
    - Regular mobs who have been put into packs of 4+ that will absolutely demolish anyone of equal level who is alone (I was caught in a battle with about 6-7 of those fishy creatures while underwater, and they chomped me to bits very quickly)
    - Events where enemy spawnrate is off the charts (forced me to abandon one because the NPC you had to escort kept dying and I couldn't get near his corpse without being swarmed by enemies) - This happens A LOT in wave-type events, reguardless of scaling. There was one event where you had to defend a submarine, but 10-15 enemies were under the water and they had many, many waves. There's no way one person could do this, and we had only like 4 people there. In events where many people are there, if you aggro too many enemies/make the first move, you go down in less than 2 seconds because of the damage they do.
    - Saw an NPC with no clothes on, including undergarments (Charr don't have much to show off anyway)
    - Possibly reducing some creature's damage. Some of them just do too much when you're equal level, and you either have to kite them around, or pray that you can melee them down before they can to you. This happened mostly in the Charr starting area.

    If it makes any difference, my main character is level 19 right now.

    GW2 is the best mmo I have ever played. It has exceeded all my expectations.

    Uh, where's the option to say that I've already purchased it? No I don't regret it.

    Closing this, we already have multiple threads for people to discuss their reactions/opinions to the beta event in.
