Oh man, I just read some of the press stuff. Now I'm even more pumped for this game (if that's even possible!). I do hope they fix the frame rate thing soon, but it doesn't matter too much to me; I'm buying an awesome computer tomorrow actually (mostly for this game).


AMD Phenom II X4 965 3,40 Ghz
8 GB ram
Windows 7 64 bit
double ATI Radeon HD 5700 crossfire

 

This was the configuration of a tester in an Italian forum...and he still had frame-rate problems. Looks like they have a lot of work to do.



CURRENTLY PLAYING: Xenoblade (Wii), Super mario 3D land (3DS), Guild Wars (PC)

I'm doing the same thing, just not yet.

@ OP:

IncGamers has a good overview of what the guilds will be like! I love that you can be in multiple guilds. ^_^

ArenaNet have been working on an Nvidia 3D solution, so maybe the game works better on Nvidia cards. Not that I know, but it could be.

And IncGamers said this:

"2 and a half year old PC that plays a lot of recent PC titles decently. Quad Core, 6GB RAM, Radeon HD 5750 graphics card. For pretty much all PvE and Conquest PvP I was sitting around 20-35 FPS, it would go a little higher when I was just having a wander around. The only thing that was unplayable was really busy parts of World vs World PvP. You could still make yourself useful in other ways on the map, just maybe not where the giant 60+ people zerg rush was happening."

We just don't know what resolution either of them were playing at, which is pretty important information...



And ArenaNet posted a new post on their blog about some of the changes they've made lately. It's quite nice!

Downed and defeated mechanisms have been redone, such that you can revive yourself if no monsters or allies are around and your armor will break if you die enough times.

The minimap/compass has been beefed up.

Meta-events are introduced, they're massive dynamic events basically!

Hidden treasures have been added that give gameplay some additional twists for the most adventurous of us all.

Boons and conditions have been revamped to be more interesting and less "math"-like, and the team is working on making them more visible to the player.



And in case anyone is interested, I'm going to redo the OP to make it much smaller and slicker, so we're better prepared for the launch of the game, both in terms of making for an easy way of getting basic information on the game and for managing the VGC guild.

Good to know! I just swapped out my 6970 for a GTX 570 just in case. I actually prefer Nvidia since they're control panel is about 100x nicer to use anyways.



ArenaNet have opened up for beta submission, but it's only open for 48 hours!

Go go go!

Stalking you has its rewards. Done applying!

I've resisted the urge to post in here as I was hoping to hear something more solid news about a release before jumping into all the media and news for this game - but with the possibility to participate in the beta being inbound I felt the time was right to break my silence.

Good timing indeed! I can assume you want to sign up for the VGC guild while we're at it? You can be in multiple guilds after all, so there's no excuse!



Doh, my new computer won't be here within those 48 hours! Oh well, just finished signing up. So beyond excited.
