*Edit: Here's the direct client link at guildwars2: http://cloudfront.guildwars2.com/client/Gw2.exe
the emails are going out - I'm in the middle of the download now. Earlier today I could not get in. There were over 188,000 files to download. 92,000 left to go - 8.5gig so far - nearly four hours and still downloading.
That sounds about right. Their support page indicates that the current game size is 17GB+
Here's a direct link for ya's: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8829014/Gw2.exe
Still not done downloading the client - but I came across this and wanted to share it.
Apparently they are still updating the game as we download. So we will have to do checks all weekend long.
Done - loaded - just having the screen flash up and the music roll was exhilarating!

Thanks for the direct link, XionTawa. I couldn't log in to the forums, and it was nice to be able to get going on the download while I'm waiting for my support ticket to go through.
In addition, guildwars2.com just released their direct link:
So I downloaded it, it opened the GW2 window, and I closed it. I tried reopening it, but it started the download all over again. Did I do something wrong?
That may just be the upgrades. I have had new downloads every time I started it. That would be about five times now - I just like hearing the music.
lol, I've been doing the same thing.
It's not just upgrades. It starts from the 187k+ files d/l. Mine did that too, until I copied and pasted it into a new folder on my desktop, and then made a shortcut also.
The beta forums give a great description of what to do after you d/l it. I did what they suggested.
edit: and yes, I start the game, too ^_^ it's sooooo exciting!
lol - that is a sad sad story - all of us sitting around starting a game that doesn't exist yet - just so we can hear the music and have a momentary high - does this border on awe and reverence?
Lunacy, sheer lunacy. btw I have been signing in about once an hour.
After the first download, I ran it until it stopped updating. I've updated a couple of times each day for the past couple of days. I did the -image method, which is how I kept my two GW accounts updated.
