Already have--and it seems like I'm not alone.
GW2 is horrible compared to Tera.

The only thing that bothers me about the game is fetishistic approach to Elin and the almost token localization.  It's another reason I don't like seeing Asia taking over the MMO market and fewer Western pushes into the market.  It is like watching a 4Kids dubbed anime.

Just read on the forums (unconfirmed) that there will be no new updates until China launches.

Can anyone confirm this? May 15 is China launch, correct?

Tracker isn't definitive, but I found nothing that seems to infer such a thing.

A news thing said Open Beta was May 15th... which pretty much just GW2 Trial Version.

Though this says it's launching then...

Either way, makes sense.  First commercial foot in China, it'll be all men on deck for that.  They'll probably re-assess what they can do and when they can do it by when the dust in China settles.  It's entirely likely that they're going to have to eat up some man hours for it and since they're not notorious for paying well, they'll probably have a lot of people taking time off towards the end of May for the Memorial Day weekend to compensate for the time front-loaded/allocated to China.

ESO doesn't use the Hero engine

You are correct, they did license it and develop the game on it though while developing their own client-server alongside it.

To be honest, SW:ToR was one of the better MMO's I have experienced. At least it was sooo much more enjoyable than the game everyone says SW:ToR is a clone of: WoW. That being said, SW:ToR would probably get a 4-5 from me while ESO is more like 1-2. I don't know why all these Rating Magazines are so genorous and give out 9 stars all the time...

SWTOR was solid story backed by the most horrible development on the face of the planet...

Hero Engine (which is what ESO is built on, oddly enough) was barely decent developed and SWTOR bought the source code to hack.  And hack it they did.

I've ranted enough on it, but the damn game at the time (and probably now) uses two processes to run the game, one as a memory management tool for textures and assets and another to run the actual game.  It was poorly optimized and even on my i7, runs like crap most of the time.

Poor engine issues, low res textures (their PR materials used high-res pre-renders they admitted you couldn't load in the actual game), and poor feature development is what killed that game.  If it weren't Star Wars, it'd be dead.
