So, I finally decided, about 8 hours before the pre-release 3 day head start, to purchase Guild Wars 2. I downloaded it last night, updated, and sat idle, waiting for the (at that time) 5 hours to expire.
The next morning...
I click the login button... I get an error message, suggesting it might be my firewall. I close GW2, check out my settings, try again. This time, the updater (which I had let stay up all night) now won't even update. I simply get a new message, "Connection Error(s) detected. Retrying..."
And here we are. Early access - DENIED.
So, I purposefully avoided the beta period. I am viewing this as being, for all intents and purposes, a full released game. Is this the way it is going to be? Is this it? Access denied?
