    This isn't open beta yet, but you have to be a fileplant subscriber to participate.

    i hate fileplanet and gamespy. they just make everything a pain in the ass!
    the stupid ads and shit.
    they are being unfair for the fun of it.
    filefront is much better!

    Why? they offer the bandwidth thats needed. blizzard wouldnt go there if there was a better option.

    $9 = movie, sometimes shitty, 2-3 hours of entertainment

    $8 = Coffee/redbull or monster for 1-2 day

    $8 = week access to a game that some have been looking forward to for years before the masses arrive.

    sounds good to me.
    Motivation...gone.

    but what about when you got no credit card and don't have the money for these stupid subscriber accounts. it's more than subscribing for a magazine that can get you the same stuff. pc gamer comes with most wanted demos, patches, direct X runtimes, wallpapers, etc. on one CD nicely made (sometimes DVD).
    i don't have all the money to subscribe to some fileplanet subscription just to play the stress test....

    Okay, I'll add you to my friends list. I need another server for an Alliance character, so I think I'll join up on 3 as well seeing how pvp servers only allow you to have one faction. PvE isnt my thing, dont like the consenual pvp aspects.

    Im at work now, but i left off at

    Volkra
    Level 12 Orc Shaman

    Cant wait to play again tonight, and watch the intro video for the 7th time.
    Motivation...gone.

    WoW is just...awesome.

    I'm just glad the free open beta is after my art history exam.

    hmmm, looks too cartoony.
    i think guild wars looks better, also i'm not sure about the gameplay of WOW..
    is it good? battle system good? guildwars wasn't totally free roaming.

    lol, warcraft's style has always been cartoony...everything fits.

    WoW's gameplay is beyond any mmorpg or rpg I've played so far, and read about. There always something to do, the quest system rocks, lots of instanced events, and above all...its actually FUN to play. Whereas most aspects of other similar games have become a chore fast and lost their luster.

    don't forget the music!! this game has some of the BEST music i have ever heard in a game. the night elf starting area has such beautiful sounds and the tribal feel you get when you visit the troll village with the jungle drums and such.

    the environments that blizzard have in this game are just wonderful. i find myself running along heading to a quest and sight seeing along the way. just wonderful!! i love it!! wooooooohooooooooo!!! chuga chuga chuga woooooooohoooooooO!!!

    ghost - i don't think there ever was an NDA on this game and if there was it was lifted many moons ago, so anything is open to discussion. the character creation is limited, very much so compared to say city of heroes or maybe even EQ2. you basically get to pick from a few different faces, hair types, hair color, skin color and facial hair (fangs for trolls and horns for tauren i think undead get something different as well). i think that's it.

    on a side note, offical release date it November 23rd. i'd imagine that open beta will then be a 2-week period ending the weekend or monday before.

    2 weeks of open beta better be satisfying.
    I heard this game was going to have 2 monthly fees every month.
    Is this true? if so i won't bother with this...

    also does it lag? if it lags alot...that tells me the servers aren't very good.

    Blizzard has said that it will be 14.99 if you buy it on a month to month basis, 13.99 for each month in a three-month package and 12.99 each for six months.

    I have low-end DSL and I never lagged at all during the stress test, most people say the servers are pretty good.

    the connectiions sound good...i could play guild wars with the graphics all on high and no lag, sometime it lags when there is change of servers. you can jump from server to server..which is cool.
