This weekend I was lucky to try the prepaid Guild Wars 2 beta weekend (June 8th – June 1oth)! I was pleasantly surprised that I actually enjoyed this game. I probably took 10 minutes making my character, even though I won’t be able to use the character for the actual game. I wanted to try engineer because apparently I get turrets! I’ve always had a thing for turrets because I owned with Engineer in TF2 and have fun using Heimerdinger once in a while.
Here is what my character looked like:
This is me on a mission to show that I am worthy:
I have to admit that I had a lot of trouble with the navigation and mechanics of the game. I’m new to PC games and it takes me a while to get use to different game controls. Diablo 3, I learnt pretty quickly but Guild Wars 2 will take me some time getting used to. I’m more familiar with the mechanics of TF2 and L4D2, which is easier in my opinion.
After completing the mission I get to submit a report on the event:
I also tried PVP mode, which I had no idea what I was doing. I just followed people and hit anyone who appeared to be my enemy. Here are the portals to different locations (I started to really like the graphics in this game once I put everything to high resolution):
Here is a battle! We seemed to be outnumbered!
I started chasing this one person who looked alone, but someone started shooting me from behind:
I’m hurt and I guess getting second chances?
Overall I had a blast trying out this game. I didn’t play the first one so I am completely new to this. I love that this game is a massive multiplayer game and I’m more attracted to play this game then Diablo 3. I’m still at level 28 in hardcore mode because I’m too scared to proceed my missions and die (and lose my character forever). I’m not into solo or long grinding games such a Skyrim, Diablo 3 or WoW. I hate the dedication you have to put into it. I’m more of a multiplayer gamer. I like games such as TF2, L4D2 and LoL. I’m interested in trying to dedicate my time into Guild Wars 2. I laughed at some parts and I’m able to play without getting too frustrated. I definitely recommend trying this game!
BTW: I was recovering my password for my email, and I think they are on to me….
