The World of Warcraft Community Site has news that the open beta testing of World of Warcraft will end tomorrow (thanks WorldofWar.net), in preparation for the imminent retail launch of the MMORPG. Word is: "Please note that this does not affect the ongoing European closed beta test. Further details regarding our plans for the closed and final beta tests in Europe will be announced on the European community sites next week."

The webpage says the beta characters are destroyed.

The game is cool. I never played an MMORPG before. I thought it would suck. I liked it. Big, open, variuos monsters, all the RPG level up stuff, spells, monsters, lots of classes.

The texture work is low quality. After awhile it does not matter so much. The place is big. I mean huge big. It can take 10 minutes to walk somewhere. Music is typical excellent Blizzard stuff.

It did lag occassionally. It was fine for me towards the end. I have a 3500/468 or something like that DSL connection. At first it was real laggy. Then it was patched and only lagged if there were about 40 people in the same area with you.

They did a good job. I don't know if I would buy it. $50 for the game and $15 bucks a month is expensive for me. It is a great game for people on vacation or kids in general. It really eats into your real life time. Game time is about 60 percent of real life time it feels like.

The funniest thing to happen to me? I go walk around for exercise. I been lazy lately. One night I was playing the beta and realized I had been walking around for 15 minutes and hadn't done anything. I was lost. But I didn't care. The scenery and music were so relaxing I felt like I was really outside doing my exercise walk.
