    The Free Open Beta Has Begun
    "Blizzard Entertainment is proud to announce that the free open beta has begun. In preparation for the launch of World of Warcraft, we are now introducing the most complete version of the game, including a new patch with extensive content, including racial traits, raids, Hunter and Paladin talents, new quests for high-end zones, and much more. We need your help for a final, massive test of our infrastructure, account creation, and the game itself. So we are now opening up the testing phase to the entire Internet-ready public of North America, Australia, and New Zealand. So if you aren't already playing World of Warcraft, sign up for the open beta now and begin your adventures in Azeroth!

    An initial run of open beta accounts is now available from FilePlanet, so please visit www.fileplanet.com to grab your open beta key. Please note that there is no fee whatsoever for the open beta; the open beta is absolutely free. Unlike with the final stress test, you do not have to be a FilePlanet subscriber to participate in the open beta."

    Hurry, limited keys.

    Ah, open beta is commencing soon for two weeks before the actual release in stores... a good time to test out the game before purchasing. Now if I can only get that 2GB installer down...

    :(

    Can I borrow the installer? I think I'll finish the download when the game's already released at the rate I'm downloading it.

    I've been playing around with it for the last 2 hrs. and I've been having fun. Have you tried dancing? That was a lot of fun. I haven't had much time to do much else, except do the Kobold Cleanup quest, but I think I like it...

    I may have finally found something to replace Ultima Online, which I can't play since there is no Mac client...

    I do get a bit of lag with the video rendering, maybe reducing the resolution will help.

    Initially it was quite laggy for me (framerate wise) in towns, but after switching to windowed mode which I actually prefer to play in while browsing the internet or chatting on iChat, the framerate seems to have improved a lot.

    Finished a few simple quests for some gloves, boots and dagger rewards as well as get my pet spell... still need to find my friends online as we all seem to be scattered in different towns due to race/class selections.

    If you see a shortie named Redshoes with green hair and beard, say hi!
