Someone at Arenanet Tweeted a map showing the population of Queensdale. Extremely jealous of those people getting to play right now.

Then I had to kill a named mob, and about 20 players were camping his spawn point, even grouping up meant someone else came along and tagged him the second he spawned. Can't wait for bloody Guild Wars 2 where a higher population should hopefully actually make the game more fun.

Though there are jerks that just try and mess things up for everyone, I much prefer GW2's system.

If anything though I was impressed at how well the servers ran with all of those players on. I think Guild Wars 2 has just spoiled me with the idea of a more interesting quest system. I was hoping that the combat in Tera would be enough to keep me interested until GW2s release, but it just doesn't seem like my cup of tea anymore. Having a bit of a hype overload with Guild Wars 2 now, after months of analysing every pixel on a single screenshot they release for my fix of content, we're now getting so close to a whole lot of new stuff.

The only reason I'm actually playing TERA is because of the combat, it's somewhat entertaining.
Shit man, I can't wait to hang out around Shaemoor and help out those darn citizens. I really, really, [i]really[/i] like the idea of escorting a caravan and doing tasks along the way, and the reward of a new special merchant or something.

The questing system in most MMOs feels so outdated and grindy. If I can enjoy questing while also enjoying the combat that really decides the game for me.
I just thought a horrible thought. What if ArenaNet suddenly releases Guild Wars 2 as a free to play game. It'd ruin everything...

Apparently this is coming to consoles? Really hoping that doesn't come through since the best thing about GW to me was the great community.
[QUOTE=Meller Yeller;34758894]Apparently this is coming to consoles?

edit: actually I'll take this down, for security reasons.

Someone on Reddit made a list of all the twitter accounts of the Arenanet devs playing the beta if you're interested in feeling incredibly jealous of the odd hints they give. [url]https://twitter.com/#!/tivac/arenanet[/url] [quote=@mkerstein]So it seems Izzy and Tyler did not sleep at all but defended a keep in WvW for 10h. Madness![/quote] God damn it sounds too awesome.

It's funny to think about how 2 years ago, I thought the game was close to being released. And now here we are, getting close to a massive reveal, leading up to beta weekends. It's been a long time.
