Been following this games progress with interest, and after preordering to try it out in the last couple of beta weekends must say I found it very enjoyable. Another beta weekend is coming up from the 20th of this month of July.

I'll be playing on the Gandara server, after applying to join the guild United Kingdoms - a guild I used to be a member of in EQ, before I played CoX, a long time ago. I'd love to be able to bring some friends along from the Intrepid's!

It's weird, the game looks like WoW, LotRO or Aion but I'm suprisingly impressed and anxious to play it. Participated two beta-events & one stress test so far and I tried all available classes, each having a unique play style, but most importantly, they're all fun to play. Guess I'll start with an elemantalist though.

Anyway, I don't know the name of my server, I chose the first one available in the first beta event, and there are many french speakers around :).

I'll choose your server then Mini, and if your friends there are ok about it, me & Mono would like to join your guild.

Pre-ordered this on Blasts recommendation and have played in one beta weekend so far.

Very much enjoyed it to this point, certainly looking forward to the launch. Don't know how much time I'll get next weekend (moving house this weekend, with likely some overflow).

Will certainly look to head to the same server as you mention Mini, great to hear from you :D

Hey guys. How's the game shaping up? If you guys are there I'll have to join you! It would be rude not to, after all.

Cool X =D

The developers have put a lot of thought into this game. Had to skip most of the cutscenes to avoid spoiling them for actual play later on. Your character choices in creation effect the flow of your personnel quest missions. Also had fun when I tried out the PvP (or WvWvW) areas of the game, something thats not usually my cup of tea. The graphics are also quite gorgeous even on my older graphics card.

Check out http://gw2.unitedkingdoms.org.uk/ and drop in your applications guys!

10 days to go before the 3-day headstart hits. :)

Really looking forward to this kicking off now in just 4 days time :)

Wasn't organised enough to reserve names for GW2, so for now I've held off on putting in my guild application until I know what names I can get. I'll be sure to look you up (and be sure to create toons on Desolation)

Hopefully there will be a few Trepids diving into this :D

Sorry Zos, as impressed as I eventually was The Secret World I love the scope and ambition of this game as suspect the combination of a action-orientated gameplay + personal story lines + huge multi-player PVP zones (something I always longed for in MMOs) + lots of character options/personalisation + a one-off and no subs payment system + nice-looking game (in World of Warcrafty way) looks like an unbeatable combination for my purse and limited time to play current status.

Just ordered this so hopefully see you in-game soon guys.

Blast: are you and Mono set-up to play on Desolation too? I'll head that way in that case.

Zoser: Come on, we'll have to see you there too. It's only £34 (for lifetime membership too ;-). Hopefully Betty and Trepids will give this a spin too.

X
EDIT: Hopefully we can get Tomorrow Man on here too.

This is looking like there should be a good few Trepids in GW2, hopefully all on the Desolation server.

Seriously looking forward to this :D

X,

We are set for GW2 Mono & I. And I already joined Mini's guild on their webpage.

I might be busy during weekend, but I'll definitively see you ingame on Monday.

Grrrr. I can't believe it. I'm never ordering from game.co.uk again. They screwed up the delivery so that my pre-release game client arrives after the actual release date and now Desolation is full too guys.

I'm going to have to pick another server to start. It seems that server transfers need a fee, sensibly, but I'm not even sure it's available yet anyway.

Let me know how Desolation goes and/or if you guys fancy a rebase somewhere else.

I can't tell you how much I'm fuming here!

Hey,

Sorry to hear about your troubles with Game, X - hopefully you will manage to sneak into the Desolation server.
As for me joining, this is not going to happen, I'm afraid - it is down to either TSW or GW2 and nothing the latter could possibly offer would compensate for the pure enjoyment that the former is for me.

Plus "world-of-war-crafty" graphics are actually more a negative for me ... I hate the look of WoW with a never-dying passion! And this goes for the design as much as for the abysmal graphics engine. :D

Hey X

So sorry to hear of your problems. For what it's worth, server transfers are currently free and they just apparently increased server population caps across the board. I'd have a go at moving your home server to desolation again. Fingers crossed you get there.

Zoser, trust me you'd love GW2. The community is great, the dynamic events mean that there's always something going on you can just jump into and help out with and I'd say the looks are more Aion that WoW.

If CoH should really die, I would need a place where I can meet the other Intrepids, so the chances have just gone up ... :')
