    My game went to less than 1 FPS and it crashed. Between frames I saw a Crystal Desert Invader chopping me to bits while I lagged out.

    The only thing I did was look at armor in the PvP locker and mess around a lot in character creation, I will probably be able to make my main in less than 30 seconds (excluding load times and other delays) unless they add new face options and such (which I doubt).

    They always get me by using a lot of stun / other snares, AoE and fire.

    Edited:

    That is only when they get me, which isn't often.

    I started to realize that when I lost a one on one with a thief. Then again I only had mace+shield for sPvP, also known as the worst weapon combo for Guardian.

    I think that it is worth every penny of the $184,43 (150,-) I payed for the Collector's Edition.

    As an engineer i just use the bomb kit / grenades / mine / medkit combo on mesmers and it usually screws them good, the clones may be smart, but they still walk right into my bombs.

    BASICALLY spent the whole time learning how to control the damn thief. I'm slightly too N00b to MMOs but I'm getting the hang of it. Could of done with that melee assist though.

    The most FUN way to play (for me) seems to be shortbow - but I just couldn't put people down like I could with double pistols - It's supposed to be AoE (which I hate) but I couldn't really control Mobs over 2-3 maybe that's just my skill - ALSO the ricochet auto attack would end up aggroing too many mobs - think I need one of those freeze sigils

    Also got a place in my heart for Warrior also - might have to Roll one of those too.

    I think Guild Wars 2 is the best MMO i've ever played. Check out my first post on this thread on page 1. Explains why I love it so much.

    Gems in the trading post are now measured per gem, not per 100 gems. So 50 copper is 50 silver per 100.

    I will admit that firefall looks good, but it is missing so much content and polish that it simply cannot stand up to GW2.

    Well the stress test was fun.

    I'm glad I got a chance to try it out before release date. I like the dodge mechanics and just how active the combat is. I played a primarily air elementalist and it was cool figuring out all the ways to keep melee enemies from being able to hit you even once. With static field and that blowback ability it seems like it's really fit for kiting.

    Holy crap. There's a new monthly achievement that is earn 2000000 coins. That's 200 gold!

    "Total value of items traded this month. [2000000] Coin Earned."
    My god. Later it might be easy, if you have 100 gold laying around. You can buy 100g of stuff and sell it back for the same price, and might get the achievement. Maybe?"

    There's also an achievement for gold hoarding. Bank 200g. They changed it from being bank 10k gold, lol.

    Oh wow I'm going to get that! I'm sure the gold bought from the Gem Store won't count. That wouldn't be fair.

    I am guessing it would, since tracking which is which would be near impossible. If it is somehow tracked, I can start a money laundering service on my alt account. You send me money, and once it's traded, it will start counting towards the achievement.
