I'm done with SWTOR so it's flick thru all these new free to plays til the game gets released, or I buy Diablo 3 to keep the withdrawl at bay. 80 bucks Aussie in the blizzard store tho, WTF?

I'll wait and see what's coming before I cast any judgement on TOR, so far I'm enjoying it and while the legacy is all about more alt's etc I'm sticking with my main.
If SC all heads to Guild Wars 2 then I'll follow. I'm not sitting in a game with no one around.

When's it going to launch?

I liked TOR, I just played too much and had too many alts that by the time legacy and the transfers went in, I'd done all I wanted.

My Sniper main has had trouble with cover this week, and they haven't bothered to fix it (although they'll bring the servers down on a friday night to fix some economy bug that less than 1% knew about). That's when Biowhere lost me, one of their 8 AC's main mechanic gets bugged unintentionally and it takes them a week (or more) to fix? That's just ignorant on a Funcom/Sony/Blizzard scale.

We’ll be conducting a stress test on Monday May 14 from 11 AM to 6:00 PM PDT (-7 GMT).

This special test event is open only to Pre-Purchase customers who have registered their accounts. With your help, we can conduct important tests and address some of the issues we identified during our first Beta Weekend Event. During this event, all you need to do is play normally with a new or existing character on your Beta account using the same game client. Please note that since this is a stress test of our servers, you may experience some in-game performance issues. If you’ve pre-purchased Guild Wars 2 and wish to participate in the stress test, we recommend that you register the account and download the game client.

Pre-Purchase customers, log in to the Beta Forums for more information and/or to download the Beta client if needed.

No it's only 7 hours, so 4am Tuesday til 11am Tuesday. Barely enough time to level up another toon to 9ish. And they're warning that it's a stress test, which means lots of lag most likely.
Luckily for me I'll be on holidays!! MUHAH!
