I dunno, the quests are lame and the mobs are totally unoriginal. Also the graphics are like, worse than Castle Wolfenstein. And only 9 classes? There should be like, 93 so it can be more like Everquest 2.

I felt so **** while playing all day. I really am in love, but the beginning of it is kinda confusing, not knowing how to attack, cast, etc. I got used to it in like 20 min tho.

.. WoW has me in some kind of.. life-drone sickness.. I can't.. stop playing..
It's very fun, very very cool, and VERY Warcraft-y. I love it.

I stayed up all night, I have a level 12 Undead Rogue named KryStryke, I am currently in Orgrimmar and am half-way till next level. :)!

This game...owns completely. I'm in love.

I have never been a graphics person (as long as they are not total crap please) and the gameplay more than enough makes up the "godly" graphics that some people seem to wants.

I stayed up to 1AM playing and today I'm half asleep at work. Hurray for coffee.

It's going to be a very long weekend. Blizzard /bow to you. Even if this is a "stress beta", you answered my prayers.

If WoW was crack, I'd declare myself in bankruncy in less than 7 days.

Holy sh*t while i'm playing the game i even regret even signing up for this because i can't stand the fact that i can only play for 7 days. I got a NE Warrior lvl 11 and it was all that i wanted. The warrior in this game is so much fun i am amazed so much about how much detail is put into everything. The warrior in this game is nothing like in EQ because i can actually SOLO yellows Hooray.

This is my second time MMO, FFXI being my first, and I was EASILY able to find my away around with my Tauren. I don't know about other areas but where I started is rather a small camp and everything was to my access. I got my first quest in less than 5 minutes, did it in 10 min and was already Lv.2. Fighting is super easy...unless you are a MMO virgin and even so it shouldn't take you long to figure out your options (which are all at the bottom of your screen).

Interface = 2 thumbs up.
Learning curve = 2 thumbs way up.

Then again, you just can't please everyone.

I agree with JAEFo, this game sucks. I don't have to wait 3 hrs for a pty, wtf!!! Doesn't Bliz know all MMO's are supposed to be boring and tedious. And wtf is with all the quests that reward you for your efforts. Quests are supposed to be dull and give no reward.

ok I finally took the game for a test drive and Heck im utterly impressed, Dispite my cxomputer is 2 years old and i only have a 2.4 gig processor, a nvidia 5200 128 grafics card and 512 megs of ram, this game ran like a **** hot clainsaw cutting thyour soft butter.

The animation is fantastic even from afar. Heck ffxi looks like crap (since i cannot see it in full potentual). This game makes the darn ffxi look flimsy. Your character LOOK strong and acts strong too. bah ill never look at ffxi the same now.

Since i did play daoc, using the WOWs interface was a breeze i didnt have to even check the controlls since most of the controlls are similar to daoc.

another thing that makes this game really nice is the quest system, **** its easy to see whos offering work and its easy to remember who that person is that ! and ? give em away big time thus you wont get lost much. well I made a night elf just to try em now i want my undead char (my daughter acutally fears the way the undead stare at the screen) Whats more My wife loves its looks and even wants to play.
This games a wet dream come true and people who complain about the grafics really gotta see this in action.

Ahh some satsifaction and happieness before the big storm comes.
I owe san my loyalty!!

My GF was the same way. She was like what's that wolf sound? Sounds like the real thing. Too bad she's not too interested. Maybe when open beta comes around. My sister asked how I got WoW when it's not even out. She was MAD I didn't tell her about it. If I show my brother, he'll crap his pants. I will have my own family "guild" XD by the time retail comes out.

No biggie really. I thought the email was bound to the user account but I guess not. But we are going to need WoWA after this is over. lol

my gf really likes the way it looks also...i think where people get mixed up is that realism is in. every one wants to see realistic looking char...but i love the blizzard style..its cartoony but intresting..they use extremly exagerated lines with lots of detail...i like it and i would have it no other way......thats just warcraft style

Now I am level 13, and I noticed the monsters that are my same level (with magic) are a pain, such as Storm Queen Harpies, and Centaur Kolkar Stomers or whatever. I usually am doing quests around crossroads/ barrens, and usually with a healer type. I really am enjoying this game, I wish the character I have right now could be retail, but beta is just beta, you test, and then get deleted! :D, aw well.

Whoever else got into the stress test, unless they're on a bad server, would agree, there is no lag. I got NO lag so far. NONE. And this is a stress test? Pretty stable ;).

Well, after playing for 2 days as a night elf, tauren, human and orc, I must say that this is what I want in a MMO. This game is so polished, so lagfree and bleeding with so much content I forgot that this is stress test beta. From lvs 1 - 9 I have experienced quests that requires you to go questing in a very dangerous but fun like the Awakening Quest found in Dolanaar to the countdown to get the antidote to Iverron before he dies from poison. This is not all you'll find in the beginning, there's more.

The combat......beautiful. Its fast pace, fun and for higher level monsters it requires you to act fast and act intelligently. When 3 Fulborg shamens come after you, you better act fast or die quickly. With skills earned almost every 2 lvs, you'll never be lacking when it comes to skills.

Is this game innovative? No but from what I see, this is the perfection of what makes MMOs what they are. This game will be perfect come retail, mark my words.

Oh and there is a tutorial, see that blinking ? bubble on the bottom of your screen in the middle??

That is the tutorial, click and read kk thx.

My biggest complaint is all the jokers who don't friggin read the quest they are given. Chat is spammed with where is mob xxxx and it CLEARLY says in the quest log mob XXX is to the south.

Not a game fault, just a people fault...

READ KIDDIES READ!

Ok I'm going to bed now, stupid game keeping me up too late

/love WOW
