You can now sign up to the open beta over at fileplanet. It's simple to get on however it's a 2.5 Gb download. And thats after you've waited over 3 hours in the queing system.

Just letting you all know :P

Yes that is a bit annoying when it pauses like that, that may also be caused because we are playing on american servers, when its fully released there will be european servers for us to play on.

I think it's an excellent game. It's certainly the best mmorpg I've ever played and I'll probably be buying it when it comes out. They still have to iron out a few floors and the lag at the minute is terrible (due to the stress test). It doesn't suffer from lag as in it goes jumpy but it does often pause when you're trying to do something (Speak to someone, killing, mining etc). However this shouldn't be a problem when it comes out. It's very frustrating at the minute but I can't complain because it's free.

Anyway, I'm an Orc Rogue. What are you?
