    Signed up. The best way to see if an MMORPG will be crap or not is to play beta. Never had an MMOG change significantly from beta to retail.

    Same. Hoping to get in, never have any luck with random numbers and beta. Only way to see if it's really all it's hyped up to be.

    I know it's Kwan made but it does look a bit like a Korean MMO, doesn't it?

    I haven't played any Korean MMO (I assume you have some experience in this matter), but I don't think you get so well made cities like Divinity's Reach in Korean MMOs.

    EDIT: But seriously, I don't get it. What's so "Korean-looking" in GW2?

    The art style has always been similar to the style in Korean mmos/games, actually more so in GW1. Not sure if it's because of NCsoft publishing or just they hired a Korean artist.

    But any Korean influence is solely relegated to art style. GW1 is like on the opposite end of the spectrum from Korean/Asian MMOs. And GW2 is still pretty far away.

    Are you fucking kidding me. The only 'Korean-looking' part of Guild Wars was Factions.

    Clearly you haven't played Korean mmos.

    Character art and much of the armor art has a Korean vibe. It did so in GW1 (not only Factions) and it does so in GW2. As long as they don't over do it Perfect World style I don't see any problem there.
    The actual problem is over the top particle effects and pointless weak monster grinding that the newer GW2 videos show. Those are reminiscent of bad Korean/Asian mmos.

    With over one million applicants it's very unlikely that I get in, but if I do and don't like the game, I will post my login info here. :smug:

    My computer, on the other hand, sucks, so I might get a spot for them to see how much it sucks.

    So are you going to share how terrible their micro-transactions scheme is or will you go all LOLNDA on us?
