What a beast of a week! The press beta weekend embargo ended Monday afternoon, and the information release has been massive. There have been a huge amount of preview articles and videos released, and there are more being published every day. And then, when the community was just about to regain their bearings – BAM – ArenaNet opened the beta application form! It being open for only a little bit over 48 hours, the fans were almost tripping over themselves to throw their hats in the ring, even overloading the servers for a while. And the results? 1 million applicants! So with all of this going on at once, it might feel like an overwhelming task so sort through all that new information. Luckily, we here at GWOnline have done that job for you. Follow after the jump for the full deal on this week’s Guild Wars happenings.Read more & comment >>
