Guild Wars 2 — 1st Weekend Beta Event

Postby [FnG] Nihilist » Wed Apr 25, 2012 2:07 am

Weekend beta client download links are being sent today, so check your email.

I'm currently downloading it. The patcher art is very pretty. :)

Speeds are pretty poor right now though (getting 200 to 250 kb/sec), so you might want to make sure you start patching as soon as possible.
Have you blamed Kril lately?

Just got my emails through now although no links as of yet. Out of curiosity how big is the download as my max is 250kbs for any download.

Edit:
Also to add for anyone on Vista/win7

Installing the game client into the Program Files directory on Windows Vista or Windows 7 can lead to issues with the patching process.
It is advised that you install the game to another folder or launch it as an administrator.

Edit2:

We also have to choose which home server we will all be playing on, as were restricted to 1 transfer every 7 days and at a cost of 1800 gems.

"While home-world selection and world transfers will be available during our Beta Weekend Event, guesting is not currently available. All players will be able to receive 2,000 gems free for the Beta Weekend Event, so you will be able to purchase a world transfer if you find yourself in need of one. Since the limit is one transfer every seven days, you’ll only be able to change worlds once during the Beta Weekend Event.
We strongly recommend that you plan ahead and choose your server before the event begins on April 27."

1 Vote for the wonderfuly named, Ruins of Surmia.

Let us not forget the pain and hardship we all faced in this lovely mission.

FDG has a huge list of servers / what major groups are known to be inhabiting each of them. (AKA, if you want to avoid the 4Chan swarms.)

Let us know where you end up going! :D

The Ruins of Surmia seems to be the favourite so far and Vabbi is in a close 2nd.

On a side note Eve is now unable to access either GW or GW2 thanks to the recent updates. :cry:

Ruins of surmia sounds very tempting, but Vabi is indeed a nice area..I'll await the bribes before making any decissions :P
