    This will include participation in open beta weekends and a three-day head start.

    I profess ignorance of this game (though the game play videos I have seen are awesome) and definitely won't buy the collector's edition, but it might be worth picking up the standard edition of a much ballyhooed F2P game as we all continue our search for the "one" (i.e., our next WoW with enthusiam levels circa 2005).

    I have played Guild Wars and little bit and it was very cool. I am hoping solo content is better this time. I also signed up for Beta but don't know if I got in yet, they had a few people sign up. Also saw it being played at PAX they last couple of year, but couldn't get near it since it was busy. Oddly enough.

    I am probably going to pick this up.

    Today's the day that you can pre-purchase the game in return for access to open beta weekends, a three-day head start when it goes live, and some tchotchke.

    This is also the first day that you can register for classes for the 2012 Fall semester at George Mason University, but that might not interest you as much. :D

    I just downloaded the client (off from work today). How do you pick a server?

    I didn't yet, that's what I am planning on doing as some of my LOTRO kinmates will be going there. Not sure if I will play with them in beta or not but it's always good to hook with people.

    Ah, OK. I won't have much time, but I'll jump on that server.

    I will jump on that server. Will try and go with the same toon names I use

    Kayln
    Els

    And since this is starting at noon I might just use my lunch hour to play a little. I love working from home sometimes :laugh:

    Ok in. but Darkhaven was full so I went to Crystal Desert. Word to the wise. Once you pick that is it you are on that world forever. You can guest on different worlds but you can't do World v World. Game looks stunning

    What do you mean you can't change it? Even when beta is over?

    And yes, some innovative stuff here.

    You will be able to pick a new server for live I am sure but you will only be on that server. They have a message come up when you pick your server. But I can't make an alt over on another server. You can "Guest" there. Haven't been able to test more.

    Ok here is the message for Guest

    They are also testing transfers so I am trying to get over to Darkhaven. I will let you know if I am successful :)

    Lag city...

    It's either:

    1. This game is much MUCH more anticipated than anyone thought.
    2. The game sucks and they were not ready for beta stress. ;)

    Yes.

    And we seriously need a mumble server for this.

    Found an empty Mumble server. Get the client here. Mumble
    And head over to 64.34.202.140 port 3162
