Same as for me. I'm worried though cause I can't log in to the support forums with my username...

I did the digital-deluxe-edition from the guildwars2.com website. They sent me an email with my key and I registered via the link in that email and got an email back saying thanks for registering and I would receive another email with the download link in it which I never did.

Anyway see if I can log in in the morning. :?

Edit: NVM. I had to log in to forums and accept the code of conduct. Link is at https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/

Found this mate.

Download Instructions
In order to participate in the beta, you will need to download and fully update the game client, as detailed in the steps below.
During this beta there is no installer, so use these directions to manually download and copy Guild Wars 2 to a folder on your hard drive.

Download the Guild Wars 2 executable file. If prompted, be sure to click “Save” or "Save As,” not “Run”.
Copy the executable file from the location where you downloaded it, typically your Downloads folder, to the folder on your computer where you wish to install the game. The folder where you place the executable file is the folder the game will use to download and store its data. Note: If you use Windows Vista or Windows 7, it is recommended that you install the game in a location other than the Program Files folder. Alternatively, you should run the game as an administrator.
Run the executable file from its final location.
Select your desired language—English, German, or French—by clicking on the corresponding flag in the top-right corner of the Launcher window. Note: It is important to select the language during patching. You will not be able to change language settings until after character creation and the opening cinematic. Once you are in-game, you will be able to change languages in the Options menu.
Allow the game to patch the necessary data from our file servers.
Enjoy!

Yes, sadly. The only issues I saw were logging in (got an error a few times, which they seemed to fix) and instances/pvp zones stopped loading. I'm pretty sure they were bottlenecking those servers for the test.

Other than that, I had no lag and played my thief to lvl 11 bug free.

I miss it already.

Im torn between Thief and Engineer..just watched some videos...

Does it get rather crazy with all the shadow stepping to keep track of where you are in the world?
ie if your constantly teleporting around, are you able to keep your bearings and use tactics or is an old fart like me going to get motion overload and not know whats going on?

Nah it's pretty easy to keep track. I got an engineer too, they've got some cool stuff. It'll be a tossup over those two or a necro for me, but I really liked the thief.
