#3 Edited by Branwulf (435 posts) -

Wow, it must have got slammed, it worked for me literally 5 minute sago.

UPDATE: They just tweeted they are having problems and are working on it.

Saw their facebook post about the page going slow and I was like 'what page?'. Then scrolled down to see the sign up post and shat bricks.

#5 Posted by Benny (2010 posts) -

The signup page is busted. But that's what betas are for!

#6 Posted by katanalauncher (224 posts) -

They should've beta tested their servers.

#7 Posted by Maystack (930 posts) -

Managed to sign up and I'm now refreshing my inbox for the confirmation email.

#8 Edited by Capum15 (5156 posts) -
@Maystack: Same.

Edit: Also, thanks to the OP for linking this.

#10 Posted by Bollard (6615 posts) -

Damn, you need to give the specs of your pc using a program. Have to wait til I get home tonight.

#12 Posted by Adamsons (877 posts) -

Good luck duders.

#13 Posted by Bucketdeth (8235 posts) -

Love me some Guild Wars, hope I got in.

#14 Posted by JammyJesus (773 posts) -

Won't accept UK, England, United Kingdom, Britain or United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

I'm fucked.

#15 Posted by Branwulf (435 posts) -


I got as far as "E" in England and United Kingdom appeared in the menu, so it worked fine for me.

#16 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7597 posts) -

@JammyJesus: I typed in "Sc" and it popped up with UK for me and accepted it fine.

/signed the fuck up :) Thought this day would never come.

#18 Posted by IBurningStar (2207 posts) -

Started to sign up and then everything changed over to German. Something is wrong here.

#19 Posted by Matthew (2144 posts) -

Don't worry (like I did) if it only shows you having one HD or GPU. They sent out a tweet saying there's only room for one field, but it is getting the information about the other components.

#20 Posted by Maystack (930 posts) -

Reading the FAQ I learned that your character names from GW1 carry into the full game. Need to go make a placeholder character just to reserve a name >.>

#21 Posted by RobbieMac (560 posts) -
@Tearhead: Same.  I left my gaming comp at my parents and all I have is my shitty laptop.  Fortunately I have to head home tomorrow.

#23 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6805 posts) -

#24 Posted by Welding (167 posts) -

#27 Posted by Pandasteeler43 (45 posts) -

Not sure why it was in German but I just got my confirmation e-mail. Really hope I get into this beta.

#28 Posted by TzarStefan (429 posts) -

My pc specs might blow the away lets hope i get it!

#29 Posted by Funkydupe (3459 posts) -

Did it take long for the confirmation to arrive? I signed up but nothing yet.

I hope we all get in.

#30 Posted by 2HeadedNinja (2026 posts) -

Took mine about 10 minutes to arrive

#32 Posted by Nihilius (174 posts) -

Not got a conformation email yet. They said it might take a while. :(

#33 Edited by Funkydupe (3459 posts) -

For those of us waiting for the confirmation email:

Guild Wars 2GuildWars2The system is just a little slow. If you have not gotten one at the end of the weekend, you can request a resend. ~RB

#34 Posted by gike987 (1811 posts) -

They know if you have multiple hard drives so don't worry if you only had a couple of GB free on your primary hard drive:

"If you have more than one HD or graphics card, Scannertron IS indeed sending us the info. It's only displaying one field. ~RB"

#35 Posted by JammyJesus (773 posts) -

It didn't like chrome for some reason.

#36 Posted by Vexxan (4627 posts) -

Pick me pick me pick me!

#37 Posted by Rhombus_Of_Terror (2274 posts) -

@2HeadedNinja: The guild wars 2 twitter confirmed that the spec reader submits all available hard drives even though it displays one.

#38 Posted by Subjugation (4827 posts) -

I suspected this might be the surprise they hinted at on Twitter yesterday, but I didn't allow myself to believe it. Well, now I believe it. Get hype! Hope we all get in duders. Good luck, have batman.

I got signed up right when this went up, before the site got dominated. GLHB duders, beta Lincoln Force unite!

#41 Posted by Jack_Lafayette (3856 posts) -

Ahhhh! 3 hours late! This is what I get for sleeping in.

#42 Edited by SlasherMan (1723 posts) -

@Dark_Lord_Spam: There is more than enough time still. This is not a first come first served kind of thing, either, so no worries.

I signed up, but with my luck, I doubt I'd actually get an invite. Eh, probably for the best anyway, doubt I'd have time to play as much as I'd like.

#43 Posted by Jack_Lafayette (3856 posts) -
@SlasherMan: I'm just upset that I couldn't get the awesome news sooner.
#44 Posted by Jackel2072 (2509 posts) -

hope i get in.

#45 Edited by selfconfessedcynic (2744 posts) -

: / - I "signed up" but have received no confirmation email.

ED: ... yet. I wonder how you request a resend?

Luck to all on this one - although I wont mind it if I don't get in.

They said (I'm pretty sure on twitter) that if you don't get an email by the weekend you can request a resend. I havn't got mine either so I'm in the same boat as you.

#47 Posted by Jayzilla (2650 posts) -

So flippin stoked! I have been waiting for this game since 2007. Sign me up son!

#48 Posted by MrCaptain (409 posts) -

signed up and got the email, I just hope my crappy computer pass. I'm hoping they want know if old computers can run the game.

..probably not

#49 Posted by Largo6661 (353 posts) -

@Branwulf: thanks for this dude ;)

#50 Edited by jakob187 (22374 posts) -

I'd love to sign up for this. Unfortunately, I can't do it because the only computers that I use are the ones at work. = (

I know they could run the game, but I don't know how much a company would want to let a duder in a beta when he's running Smartlaunch and a lot of other programs on computers at a LAN center in order to keep everything running without discs in the trays. = /
