    Did anyone have performance issues in this last beta? Seemed like my PC was running slow as molasses. I'm hoping there are still tweaks to be made. one thing I can't stand in MMOs is slow video response, and my budget for upgrading to an i5 hasn't quite been topped off yet.

    I may pick this game up. Which they would open up a beta for the general public so I can get a taste of it before purchasing.

    Yeah, I get a few framedrops on some scene.. I checked gpu usage, it was @ 50%-60%. Havent checked the cores though. Its waaay better than beta weekend 1 however. I was getting 15-20 fps average during the 1st beta weekend :D. Id expect more optimization on their game binary side and on the gpu driver side.

    I will likely be on Jade Quarry. Though Maguuma for the goon guild is awfully tempting.

    I've been out of the GW2 loop for too long. I had no idea we would even know what servers are called. I'll join whatever you guys decide to join. :toast:

    So, it's saying I will need to purchase a world transfer if I select a server now. Which shall I choose? *Jade Quarry seems to be mentioned alot. I'm going for that.

    2nd edit. Jade Quarry is Full. I chose the Gates of Madness... i think.

    they said you could change servers freely at launch, later it will cost gems

    we definitely need to see who has chosen what server and if we are going to Teamspeak or something because I got this to play with friends.

    I have a Ventrillo up, Zeta.typefrag.com:26295 no pass. I have a group of about 10 ish people I'll be playing with on(what server I don't know). Just a matter of waiting and seeing what servers are available.
