I was actually the same way. There were several people I knew reassuring me that it was only a beta, and that release would be an entirely different game. I hated the beta. I suppose by release my expectations were lowered enough that I knew exactly what to expect, and wasn't disappointed at all. In fact, it was a little better because it ran more smoothly on my pc than beta did. I enjoyed the game quite a bit, though the grind from rank 20-30 has worn on my nerves a great deal.
