So I had the pleasure of playing the open beta a few weekends ago (pre-order bonus) and I cannot stop thinking about the total awesomeness that I experienced... :thumbup:
This game is something that finally brings everything that a MMO should be to the table. For me there will be next to zero MMO's currently on the market that will stand up to what this game brings.
It would take me hours to go through everything and days to try explain how brilliant the combat is and weeks to paint a picture of the world itself.
There will be no grinding, there will be no stupid "kill 10 homeless kids" quests. The emphasis on teamwork, when needed, and the amazing solo play is something to behold.
Gone are the days of Tanks, Healers and DPS (FINALLY!!) Each class is self sufficient, leaving more time for tactics and pure PWNAGE!
And if all that wasn't enough enter WvW (world versus world) where you and the people on your world (realm) battle other worlds to the death in MASSIVE battles. There are siege engines, castles, huge friggin crossbow things. Its tactical, its HUGE and its the most fun I have ever had online.... EVER!
I will not head off into the WoW killer cliche, but I am confident enough that this game is what I want to be playing that after 4 years of WoW I have cancelled my subscription.. I await this games release with more excitement than when I heard they were making a star wars mmo (to bad it flopped so epic!)
Are there other people in Namibia that will be playing this game... Can we setup a dedicated thread so we can all get on the same realm and maybe start a guild? This game is free to play, all you do is purchase it and that's that!
Let me me know what you guys out there think!
