    don't generalize, GW2 isn't following the same path others have done.

    Yes, a period of time used for testing the servers with mass players online and gathering feedback on user hardware and their thoughts on game mechanics, whilst they've signed a legal document stating that they're not allowed to leak ANY information about the game is totally an advertising stunt.

    The Closed beta will have told them a lot of that allready, true they havent tested it with massive amounts of people. The beta is still quite focussed on advertising though.

    The closed beta would've told them nothing. The closed beta was for advertising, the only people in the closed beta were press, hence the mass amounts of YouTube videos from it.

    Due to being press, everyone had a high-end PC and there weren't that many people on the servers and honestly, I doubt many of them even provided any feedback on game mechanics.

    The upcoming beta is for actually gathering information and will not allow anyone to release screenshots or videos. It will test the game on a huge number of different hardware combinations, from the low-end to the high-end, stress test the servers and of course gather a lot of feedback on game mechanics from the million people testing the game.

    Would you like two dozen dirty socks stuffed into your mouth? No? How do you know? Have you ever tried?

    your right we haven't tried, but those what may look like dirty socks might in reality be a delicious cake baked in the shape of dirty socks. You never know.

    Also, its an entirely different thing, GW2 looks quite good and is designed for entertainment, dirty socks do not look good and are definatly not designed for entertainment.
