    Guess somebody was over anxious or not happy with the Press Beta and leaked out some screen shots. The news spread like wildfire over at Reddit. Just basically one more day to wait was to much.


    What our staff here at Guild Wars 2 Stratics is waiting for is more in depth articles about the actual game itself, rather than screen shots. That is the meat and potatoes so to speak what a lot of Guild Wars 2 players and fans are waiting for.


    Now don’t get me wrong but in game screen shots are cool and gives us more ideas of what 99% of the player base has not seen graphics wise of areas in the game. Myself, I am more interested in the mechanics of the game and some critical articles about some of the things I want to do with in GW2. The smoothness of the AI is one area I would like to hear about as an example.


    For any players wanting to catch up on what happened with the beta leak please visit :http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/comments/pvp67/two_leaked_press_beta_screenshots/



    I would like to add that the leaker was taken care of by ArenaNet.

  3. The whole business seems pretty silly. A handful of leaked screenshots that really didn't show anything of import. What's the point of leaking that? And, what, two days before press can release their gathered information?

    Well when you are under a NDA you are held to a legal agreement.

    Whoever he/she was could be in some serious trouble then just a banning. Even though it may not be important to you, a million viewers, and I, it is important to Arenanet and other Press sites.

    Like I said I am waiting for the meat and potatoes of in depth articles. Graphics shots are just a light snack in my opinion.
