Will a 10day trial launch with the game? I want to try it out but only have three days to do so is putting me off. My 8800 GTX broke recently so I'll need a new gfx card to enjoy it fully and I want to get that before I buy the game.

Oo , seems they missed giving out the sword of mighty money pouch with the armour of the bank manager with all that loot ... ffs , is there anything left to actually ... you know , err pay ...I mean PLAY for ?

... or was that in the pre order the 'steamy-direct2drive-EADM-CE with a Gamestop order code' version ?

I dont know about you guys , but when a game start throwing in so many items just to encourage gamers to buy the game... I got to wonder whats the actual game like ? Whats it going to be like in near future ?
I may be olde fashion player, but items in the game used to be stuff you strived to gain and attain ... and NOT pay and claim.
Nah , I am just old.
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

Some things are painfully obvious, others must be made obvious... painfully

I see if differently. Collectors Edition == More Stuff. People want stuff!

But I can say without a doubt this game is entertaining enough to be able to launch without these goodies.

:D

Dammit, I'm torn 50/50 to impulse buy or to wait it out and trial the game whenever that becomes available.

Never impulse buy any MMO, in my opinion. Without exception things are always shaky at launch. Wait a month or so for reviews to come in, bug patches to come out, and for things to generally stabilise.

Good:
Pretty good launch. No server crashes. No lag. Thousands of people.

Bad:
Sadly long queues (2 hours) if you (like me) crashed and can't get back on within a minute.

Smoothest MMO launch I've played to date.

Any reason why you crashed? Was it the games fault or is your computer just struggling to handle it?

It was my secondary GPU overheating due to bad memory cooling. Just shut down the computer all together. Solved it for now by running without CrossFire and just the one good card.

Yeah cap is 50, quite quick to level if you do it right and have a good group/guild. Still unsure what class I really want to play so I've been leveling one of each class to get a taster really.
