I just wonder how many people are watching people play the Beta? I have been but i cannot post or talk about it because the thread will get closed. It's not against the NDA to say their are places to find it and people are doing it. I wonder because if i'm not in the Beta i could talk about it? SE said that the Japan Mags do not get their permission when they post screen shots and SE doesn't do anything to them. It was a question when they were in France if they give Japan mags exclusive pics or descriptions of the game.

So i hope you guys find some great vids of the game, If anything this gets me more excited to play the game. Happy hunting.

Edit: didn't mean to offend anyone. Changed some names

In before "*** is offensive"

Honestly, it is; I just don't feel like being the one who gives the lecture this time.

Because watching people play is like ****. You're excited at first, but after about a minute and a half you're left with only shame and loneliness.

This has been a topic in the past. I am not in the beta and I had talked about it. Eventually the thread completely disappeared from the list of topics. I suggest you don't talk about what you see unless it is about information that has already been released from the NDA. You may not be in the beta and not be banned for talking about it, but the thread will be closed. If yo do decide to talk about what you see, do be sure to be careful.

I actually have watched a few things, think you posted a link a few days back before thread was locked, and checked out someone playing on a moderate system and the game still looking pretty good which is one thing I wanted to know since i'm in the mid range of recommended to minimum range of PC.

Mostly though the alpha/beta vids haven't really been too much different considering its still usually someone getting a feel for the game and wandering around doing the same quests i've seen other people do. Not to say sometimes I don't catch something worth checking out, but by this point i'm past just watching videos and want to play it myself, whether it be a beta invite or waiting out the release.

I watched a lot of streams but. Once you watch it once... people above are right. There's the main city plus the one big outside area and that's about it. You might be able to reach max level cap or close to it in this one big area but I can guarantee when the game is Retail this won't be the case. They just condensed different level monsters in one giant area. I don't bother to watch streams now. I've seen enough to get the idea of the game.

The environment is gorgeous. The characters are ****. The music is nostalgic. Victory fanfare makes an appearance. This game is awesome. Just sucks we have to wait 2 months. Meanwhile, StarCraft II and League of Legends will keep me occupied.

I'm not going to report any news about the game. I just like to see it and it gives me a clearer picture of how the jobs work and the abilities. I don't want the thread to be cleared so i wont go into detail of what i see. From the Pics SE has released the game is beautifull and from their vids the game system looks awsome.

Seriously, 90 seconds? Man, I need 40 minutes at least...

Also, why would I feel shame after watching ****? o_o

I haven't even looked it up yet and I need a cold shower.

Back on topic, I'm hoping that by telling people you were watching someone play the beta, you (OP) don't get banned. On the other hand, you probably shouldn't be surprised if it happens.

SE can't do anything to someone NOT in the beta leaking info because YOU didn't agree to an NDA. The best they can do is try to track down your source. But these forums have decided to fully support the spirit and SE's wishes and will not post or support NDA breaking content on their behalf.

That said I was watching the streams myself and every once in a while you catch gold, I saw someone mining for ores and the system looks really interesting! I wish the stream had been an English client!

Well what they can do is take legal action to have NDA materials removed. That's why ZAM and other reputable sites won't allow NDA leaks, apart from wanting to be on friendly terms with S-E, because they can get hammered legally if they allow it to go on, so it's better to not even let it start.
