Yea I'm checking this out. I'm hoping it's not P2P because I'm over that shit, and it'd have to be simply mindblowing for me to pay to play again.
I'm a little worried because afaik it has not been playable at any convention to date, even with a release date barely six months away. I was playing GW2 at Pax East two years before it even hit, 40 minutes a go.
Edit: Apprently it will be playable at Gamescom in August (the biggest gaming convention in the western world). Still if they have been unwilling to let people play it this close to launch, that worries me.
