Good, so it's not just me.

Would be nice to have someone address this soon. Video game footage really suffers from low bitrate so this sucks.

It seems like the GB East stuff are fine, though I might be mistaken...

Anyone noticed low bitrate on the videos recently? I'm choosing HD and I tried the three different streaming modes, but everything seems to be pixelated when stuff gets busy on the screen.

Sorry if this got asked before, but I tried to search the forums and its terrible! I can never find anything using the search system on these forums...

I used one of the maces for most of the beginning of the game, like first 6-7 hours. Since then I switched to something better, but due to the new durability system which makes all weapons much more frail, it still serves as a good backup weapon. Not for long though...

For those of you who haven't been following, Jeff is one stream away from finishing the game. He said he's going to stream some time today, so follow his twitter for when exactly it would be.

I honestly think that people who don't listen to the ads version are missing out. It's basically 2 more minutes of good ol' bombcast silliness (which is the main reason I listen to it in the first place).

The premium version is basically two Jeff/Vinny-funny-minutes slimmer, which makes it the inferior one.

@i_am_lono: Yep! Totally agree. I actually followed the blog of Robert Briscoe (the lead artist and designer) on the development of this, and was really awe struck by his talent on environment design. Very inspiring stuff.

So, yeah, here's another one: EMW0P-NF3N6-FCGZE

I still can't activate this game through UPlay, even though I already activated it like a year ago. I'm greeted with the "key already in use" error message.

A week later and two simultaneous support tickets open at Ubisoft support, I'm still locked out.

This has been a terrible experience. Their support response time is crazy slow and very poor. Not to mention the amount of time it took them to issue a statement that recognizes the issue.

I don't think I'll buy anything from Ubisoft in the future.

I'm thinking about buying this. Does ArenaNet usually accompany discounts with these free trial events?

Sounds good. I'm trying to learn this game by myself using bots, but playing with people seems like the way to go.
