Never played a beta with worse performance than this game. Can't give feedback on much when I get 6fps in a regular dynamic event. Guess I will wait till their next beta weekend.

Been playing on and off since last night, I'm a lvl 8(i think)human engineer. I don't think ive ever played a MMO that has been this populated outside of city hubs.

Beautiful looking game, Love the fact that you don't have to join groups to do the quests, Like i can be going somewhere, See a group of people doing some quest, If i move close enough to them it will automatically start me doing that quest, If i don't wanna do that quest i just keep waking past.

There is one or two of the quests that are alittle confusing as to where you supposed to go ... Gladly 90% of them are fine though. Also at the minute when there are a lot of npc mobs and live players on screen because there is that much going on it can get alittle confusing.

All in all loving it so far though.

This game ****ing sucks. It's easily the most over-hyped game I've ever played in my life. The graphics are decent, but the game runs like crap. The removal of the holy trinity, which I thought would be really cool, just ends up making every battle a chaotic mess with 50 different people ping-ponging mobs all over the place. Also because no one can heal you, and there is literally no tanking going on, everyone is dying, getting rez'd, dying getting rez'd until you finally zerg the quest or event or whatever and it ends.

And these "dynamic events" have been done before, they are called public quests. There is nothing dynamic about them. You walk into an area and the quest starts, and when it's over it starts again, exactly like what Warhammer Online had. The only difference is that the entire game is public quests instead of just one area.

The last couple of years all we've heard is how GW 2 is going to change the MMO genre, kill off this or that game, or how it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. Don't buy the hype, it's not going to make anyone quit the games they are already playing.

I'm so disappointed with this event I wish I could get my money back.

AHAHAH BETA crying again. If anyone buys into any hype, that is their own fault.

The game is fun. Seems like just another mmo to me. I mainly am buying this for the pvp. The game also seems to be running fine for me.

I am hearing similar complaints on other boards. I'm not in a beta, but people are saying the game is just one big Warhammer Public quest.

Apparently, they haven't tweaked the CPU/GPU performance yet, so the game is using more CPU and less GPU than it should.
