    Yeah, would be fun to go to that thing that's in San Antonio, but I don't have my own car for usage just yet (insofar as being insured anyways, as we do have a spare massively-sized Ford truck that runs on *shudders* diesel). And more to the point, who in their right mind, out of the people who already own the game and are interested, would go to it? The game would be out for 1 day, 4 days if you count headstart!

    It's still highly unlikely that I'll be playing that first week, as I need to get Kitiy situated with her computer upgrade first. I'm about $70-90 short now, thanks to this stupid referee recert clinic costing $80. :<

    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    About the graphics engine (DX11 vs DX9):

    Focusing on DX9 allows us to do this, as it’s a much wider supported graphics API than DX11 is and we wanted our game to reach as many of our fans as possible.

    We will be evaluating supporting DX11 post launch. ~RB2

    something I'll hate when the game releases, people who make huge toons but forget to adjust head size... (seriously you look silly/handicapped)

    All these patches, I think we will see a stress test soon...

    Hopefully not! I don't want to play more stress tests, just want the game I know I can just skip the stress test but it's hard to resist

    I'm debating on going human mesmer instead. Kormir = big lore fan here.

    I wonder if the god you were blessed by in your personal story makes an appearance later on...?

    I sure hope so, more than just the "You were saved by Dwayna!" "...but Dwayna's not even my pa--" "Shut up, go help people"

    I'm sure they might make a minor appearance since we were blessed by them.

    However I am more confident when elona opens up we go to the place kormir was turned into a god. To learn the truth about why the gods ignored the humans.

    The Gods ignored humanity when... the Searing happened. When Orr fell. When the Titans entered the realm. When Shiro rose. Hell, none of the five gods gave a damn about stopping Abaddon, only Kormir.

    The gods abandoned humanity literally ages ago. Humanity's just too daft to realize it.
