Hafta say, it's pretty silly. Made worse by the fact that I was invited to alpha, but I wasn't invited to Beta...:\ Key didn't work for me either.
Gosh. Everything IN gw2 is instanced...It's even fully sharded for overflow. Just like GW1.
I think the second two points are fine, but the first seems like you are blowing smoke over the entire thing. Every single zone is an instanced. Cities, starter areas, zones. At a certain number of players, each zone creates a second shard. I was in "overflow" so much this past beta weekend. Put into queue to join the "real" area. It seems this story is trying to say that the entire world is one giant world like warcraft or something. It is not. Now, each of the PvP mists zones were (as far as I could tell) each one instance with no overflow, unless that flow is really high.
At times, it felt a little grindy, but nothing like any normal korean mmo. And the level curve was nice.
