I had a lot of fun over the weekend.
I will admit to feeling a little overwhelmed when I first got out of the Introduction/Tutorial, but simply because there was so much that I wanted to do and I couldn't decide what I wanted to do first. I tried out all of the classes that I have some interest in, and unlock a ton of weapon skills so I could at least get an overall general feel for how they play as a base level (without worrying about traits etc).
The WvW was fun, but on Friday night the Steamspur Mountain server was the whipping boy of our server trio. But we kept fighting. We flipped supply camps, did an event that saw an Ogre warband recruited for our team who then ran off to unleash some mayhem. I think my biggest mistake was going in too early and not having a very wide selection of skills to choose from, and no weapon swap unlock yet, so that left me with very few options in combat outside of the few unlocked skills that I had. It was still a lot of fun though.
I liked the crafting and the discovery aspect of it, but it would have been sweet if we had gotten sort of a 'starter bundle' of materials to help us get some stuff done at least initially. I usually came back to town with a ton of materials in my packs, but it never really felt like 'enough' and I wanted to be able to make/test some more, especially given that we were on a clock. But I can already see that crafting will be something that I definitely will be getting into once the game goes live.
The game is going to keep me busy for some time.
