I could never seem to get the graphics to look that good on my box when I was playing in the betas

Those do look nice, but I can't get over the fact that using bloom is more or less like cheating the eye.

Well from the looks of it, they actually improved the graphics, but the screenshots they showed in the past looked exactly like that on my rig.

Nice graphics but I get tired of the D2 gameplay quickly, after playing Champions of Norrath, I enjoy using a pad with overhead action games now.

Is it really very similar to Diablo 2 style? No pay per month + Diablo style sounds like a real winner for me.

Its identical... Just the chatrooms are now towns to walk around in. It's free because its BNET, its not a MMORPG in anyway, shape or form (not matter how much fans want to compare it with MMORPGs).

GW's graphics engine isn't complex at all, they're just over-using the bloom effect and stenciling a lot of the shading, and some neat spec lighting. Trust me, this game runs a lot better on lower end systems than EQ2, my old box (Celeron 2ghz Fx5200) run without much lag back at the E3 playable demo.

But to compare it to EQ2's graphics engine is almost laughable ::wink::

My biggest problems with GW were its UI, controls and combat system. Have they improved those since the early weekend events? The control scheme was completely counter-intuitive compared to what I was expecting.

Yes, controls were better this time around. The game felt snappier, too. The UI has been refined a little bit, and they've added what amounts to an expandable hotbar in the lower left for quick access to various screens. IIRC, there is also a larger number of commands that can be bound to the keys.

Its nothing close to D2...people apperntly thing its D2 in 3d...even if it was D2, it would still be a major sell out as D2 is still being played/sold in shops.

GW is not D2. It is hardly anything close to it.

...Well in the last beta event the changed the entire GUI, the combat system is still the same...although i dont know what was wrong with it in the first place...infact i found it very easy to learn and simple to control, there is alot of combat control in the game, but it is very simple to learn and use them in the battle, most of these combat control help alot in PVP, and mainly GvG where people might not have ventrilo, etc.

Again people who think this is D2 in 3d...you need to play D2 first then play GW, game is nothing close to it, except the fast paced action, its not a click fest, ie omg my clicking rate>ure clicking rate. Just look at the way you combat in the game..jeez nothing whats so eva close to d2 :/

The only thing i can see is that GW is addictive as D2 :/
