(WAR) Are we there yet?

By the time Open Beta rolls around, let alone the head start and actual release, I’ll be so exhausted from all the anticipation and Bovine goodness I may not even notice. (There is still a beta and I’m still in it, but it’s a rather focused, NDA-covered thing and after the hordes of the preview weekend, rattling about with a much smaller pop again just isn’t the same.)

Why is it that wanting is often so much more entertaining than actually getting?
