A little over two weeks ago I asked what class and race people planned to be. Now that Open Beta has ended and official launch is just days away (not to mention CE and SE Head Starts beginning in less than 9 hours and two days respectively), many of us have had the chance to test the classes and races and have seen a little bit of what is in store for us upon release. Have any of you changed your minds? If anything, it's cemented my decision!
Closed Beta, crowded and lag-ridden Preview Weekends, Open Beta and unintentional bugs aside (broken pet AI, thank God they fixed you!), it's been a pretty fun ride. I can't wait to see how launch fares and how far the game will take us afterward.
Very few, if any launches go perfectly, but here's to hoping WAR goes as smoothly as possible. Here's to hoping that those who have pre-ordered and paid for their boxes receive them on time. Here's to hoping that the many people who are getting the game out of simple curiosity like what they see and stay, helping to make it a fun and interesting MMO community. And here's to hoping we all have fun with a game that we've all been waiting for, some of us for years.
Not everyone will like the game, and not everyone will even stick out the first month. That's just how MMOs go. With so many out there for people to choose from, it's not that easy a market to break into. People who were excited will see their interest wane and others who were only mildly curious will discover a new interest.
So let's all keep helping and supporting each other in-game and on the forums, and let's just see where this one takes us, shall we?
