oh well.. guess it had to happen soon..
The beta was fun, I enjoyed parts of it but right now I can't see it lasting for me. It was a choice of Guild Wars or WoW for me, and right now with the server issues, plus the 500-600ms average ping times for me in Australia, I'm afraid that Guild Wars has won out.
All the better that GW is cheaper and just as much fun then :-)
All the best to those that continue in WoW.
