End of Beta Beach PartyFollow

How many of you went? There were tons of testers there. I also met a few of the developers and even Smed, president of SOE, was there. Everyone was decked out in their finest costumes and it was neat getting a sneak peek at some of the shiny equipment we'll be able to get at launch.

I was there for about 40 minutes or so, mostly hung a bit away from everyone since there was crazy lag going on! After I'm done with my dinner I'll post a few of the screenshots I took.

Ohh, is that who Smed is? =P *shows what I know*

Yup, I was there and got trampled by the giant bat and what I am now calling the "Yarg! Arg! Arg!" monster more than a few times xD

Spent quite a while after the party died down there as well.. Noticed that the game time was flying by lol - Apparently one of the devs turned on super fast time and left it on.. I was standing there for weeks!

Pretty much the only cools screenshot I managed to snag was of Referee Ruby in the bubble. I did get some video though, not sure how that turned out.

I can't believe how many folks were online!

And that's who Smed is? Crazy

Sounds like I missed some cool stuff! Wish there was a way to turn off player names in game aside from hitting F10 and losing your UI, because wow that throng of people was laggy.

That's from fairly early on, after Ref Ruby showed up and then the Yarg! monster. :)

I've gotta admit it... I love that feature. The dogs vs the cats cracks me up every time. Though at the party it was nuts to see just how many dogs and cats there were!

LOL yeah. The individual interaction between them is so interesting, too! One dog followed my cat around with hearts a lot while my cat hissed at it, meanie Admiral Ace barked up a storm, and most other dogs only gave half-hearted barks and chases. They seem to definitely be opinionated creatures, which is so fitting considering how they are IRL. :)

Don't remember who's dog Admiral Ace was - Little Bandit was mine

lol, half of the time during the main party the moshpit area sounded like an animal fighting ring with so many pets there =\
