OP  4/23/12 9:41:48 AM#1

I will not gonna spend my money with out trying that game.

I've seen so many fanboys/haters comments, i really don't fallow any of them until i don't "feel" the game myself.

So will be there an open beta/trial or Arenanet want to hide something from potential players just to get their money like they did with pre-purchasing the game with out playing?

Blizzard was honest, they did open beta, they never had NDA for Diablo3, basically, they said "thats the game, play it, you like it, buy it".

Is wicked how not even GW1 didnt received any kind of trial/beta .. just because they spent money on all GW1 expansions or something.

ArenaNet might have an open BETA as well.

 

The main difference between the two situations is that ArenaNet hasn't announced a release date and Diablo 3 comes out in 3 weeks.

 

No one knows how much info comes out during pre-purchase betas or whether they will have an open beta.

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

I think it's unrealistic to expect one before even a release date. I have no clue if they will have one or not though. For me I'll just watch my family play :P

ArenaNet's being honest too. They're not having a simple "open beta", instead are using the same formula as they did with Guild Wars by having Beta Weekend Events. In a nutshell, they open the game up to those who pre-purchased as well as those who registered for the betas and were selected. Then, based on observation and feedback they'll tweak things a bit until they feel the game is ready for release. The BWE's are non-NDA events, even live streaming will be allowed.

 

This weekend is the whole ball of wax for them. They're laying it on the line at huge risk to themselves by having this mostly a pre-purchase thing. If they fail to deliver it'll be crushing. But, if you watch the vids from the press betas it's easy to see the high level of polish on the game. It's close to being ready. Really close.

 

They will not disappoint. Trust me on this.

Oderint, dum metuant.

If anything diablo 3 drove people away not toward their game. IT wasnt even an open beta, it was a 1 mission demo. Guildars 2 does not need to rely on cheesy demos or trials like other mmos as their is no monthly fee!!. This game is going to succeed based off reviews and word of mouth , the old fasioned way

No idea where they could have got their information from... but Gamestop is selling Guild Wars 2 under the premise that it releases June 26th, 2012.

Its not like they spent all the money on GW1 expansion and thats the only reason you didnt have the trial access, its just it was a fresh enough game to not need it, it was seven years ago and theres was no competitior around, the threw their cards, they said this is what you have, a PvP centric game with arenas, GvGs and stuff, nothing more, and there was a lot of footage around, just like there is with GW2, i dont even understand the point of your post, wanna flame arena.net or the game itself? if its that so i give you 1,5/10.

I hear you. Anet should put them balls on the table and let us measure them marbles! *slams rock hammer on table*

They won't have an NDA in upcoming beta's though, and despite prepurchasing guaranteeing you beta access, there should be an amount of "beta-sign-up-without-prepurchase people" as well.

So yeah, might not be YOU or ME participating in the betas but that's our own fault for not signing up for it. At least there will be plenty of folks playing it and reporting back to us here (I hope).

I seem to have fond memories of Gwen exploding at the end of a beta?

There is no release date. They made it up. Probably to help induce pre-purchases from their store.

 

http://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/game-faq/#three

 

When is Guild Wars 2 going to be released?

We expect to ship Guild Wars 2 in 2012. The final release date will be determined by beta-testing feedback.

Everything about GW2 is out there in the open, ANet is not hiding anything, unlike the greedy Blizzard and others. Do some research, ArenaNet is about the most honest developper out there right now.

Honesty, hmm?  Like when they said that the RMT shop was implemented to protect players from the nasty gold farmers?  That kind of honesty?

You're right.  ArenaNet is hiding everything from you.  In fact, everyone who's prepurchased the game will be in for a big suprise when they learn that GW2 doesn't actually exist.  It was a gigantic hoax devised by NC Soft and the Gnomes of Zurich.  All that artwork, the gameplay videos, the interviews, the manifesto, the blogs, the media weekends -- all of it a lie.  All of it manufactured to part innocent gamers from their lunch money.

Stay away from GW2.  Stay far away.

Huh?

I'm not sure I fully understand the OP. I think what you're saying is if GW2 doesn't have an open beta they are somehow being dishonest or something? You also mention GW1, and I'm not sure if you are trying to say GW1 didn't have an open beta, or you somehow feel that GW1 players should automatically get to try GW2 before it comes out.

First up, nothing I've experienced shows me that Anet is being dishonest. I've played the game, it is available to the public, just in limited increments. I don't know if they will have an open beta. With GW1 they had the beta weekend events (which is basically what we are starting to do now, but the are for pre-purchasers only). They may have a few more public beta events before launch. Also keep in mind that if you haven't already, SIGN UP for beta. You can still do it! And they have let people into beta who haven't pre-purchasers.

I've played GW2, and I've played Diablo III. I can honestly say that there is more playable in GW2 than there is in D3 (though it's impossible to say what percentage of each game we are currently playing). Both games show exactly what they are about, and both have all major aspects of them playable.

- I'll say this again, (I really hate repeating myself) because this is important. Do not base your opinion of any game off of people bitching on forums. Here-say is usually the least reliable / most subjective way to get a reliable impression of anything. There is a ton of info on this game that you can go see for yourself. If the 100s of youtube vids aren't enough (most of which are made by people actually playing the game), then there will be some livestreams of the BWE I suggest you partake in.

Thread of livestreamers for the next Beta Weekend Event

There you can talk directly to someone playing the game, while they are playing. Ask what you want, and get an immediate response. If you don't end up getting in beta, this'll be the next best thing for you.

Blizzard had NDA for both StarCraft2 and WOW Cata and earlier games

 

StarCraft2 even made you pay for closed beta with no release date  (just like GW2)

you are making wild assumptions, anything to demonize the game

 

during E3 2004, a beta game was available --  a full year before launch of GW1

I dont want livestreams, youtube movies, pics and others opinions.

Can i try the game with out buying ? I ask to much?

Again, maybe you don't understand English very good:
I want to try the game myself before i take the decision to buy or not.

Guild Wars 2 may or may not have a full open beta for people who have not purchased or pre-ordered the game.

Blizzard allowed open beta only what, 3 weeks before launch?

Since we have no idea when GW2 is launching it is impossible to know if they are going to do a full open beta or not.

The upcoming beta weekends are still CLOSED beta's for pre-purchasers and a lucky few selected participants.

They just happen to not have an NDA.

No one can answer your question yet - it is possible they will have a full / completely open beta, we just don't know yet.

Be patient if you want to try before you buy, you may get the chance, you may not.

I dont want livestreams, youtube movies, pics and others opinions.

Can i try the game with out buying ? I ask to much?

Again, maybe you don't understand English very good:
I want to try the game myself before i take the decision to buy or not.

 

 

Then get a beta key, go to gaming conventions, wait for trial or wait for open beta.

But please, don't start pointless threads with your ranting.
