The real translation is as follows:

You can't play our buggy, unfinished game before release unless you've already paid for it and we've already got your money.

I had absolutely no interest in this game as of 2 weeks ago. But through browsing around and listening to others.. I think I'm going to try it. I usually go some sort of elf... but I think I might mix it up and go greenskin shaman lol. We'll see.

I'm definitely going to give this game a go. I've also been looking at the shaman class.. Gork&Mork sounds hilarious, and the group buffs are the kind of thing I usually do.

Friend at work is a big Warhammer fan and in the beta so I picked his brain last night. He says they have been doing a ton of balance changes in the past few weeks. A lot of classes were overpowered and have been nerfed. Good to see them doing this in beta and not while the game is live (*cough* AoC *cough*).

His biggest complain was the population balance was something like 1/3rd Order 2/3rds Destruction. Since the evil races have all the skimpy costumes, it looks like many of the younger players/retards are filling them up. Friend said despite the population difference, Destruction was getting owned in the battlefields because the players all fight with each other and can't work as a team.

He was dead set to roll Destruction but the population he's seen in Beta has made him reconsider and I think he's going to roll Order now.

I may pre-order just to try the open beta, then go from there.

Some of you guys know you can pre order a game and cancel it before it comes out right?

Pre order, get the beta info, cancel the pre order, no money lost.

I thought the incentive for pre-orders was supposed to be that you have the game at launch instead of hoping you might get one on limited supplies. Offering up shit like an "open" beta for pre-ordering is just a way for them to draw in cash and show off their sales figures.

Beyond that I thought the idea behind offering free access as so that people could try before they buy? I played Age of Conan in the beta stages and it was a nightmare. It barely worked and when it did work it was, less than thrilling. I gave them the benefit of a doubt and decided to buy the game at launch anyway, which turned out to be a big mistake.

Honestly I see no incentive to put $50 down on a game that may or may not suck. I prefer to find out if something is worth my money before I go and spend it.
