Are there any ACTUAL (leaked or not) footages from GW2 to warrant such blantant fanboyism about its originality? Regarding the leveling system it just feels like a skill based rather than level based system for increasing ones power, and these live events just feel like a more polished rift/PQ system used in current mmos.
I'm not saying GW2 is not gonna be a good/great game but it seems too much faith is put into what the devs say. Afterall most, if not all devs, usually say how their game is revolutionary (i.e Rift, which in its core is a copy/paste of WAR Online even uses same game engine and models!)
Now OT. The games seem solid enough, the layout is more compact than in other mmos (i.e the mini map next to hotkeys not all over the place), and the animations are really fluent. The world also seems alive which is a good thing.
I buy almost all MMOs that are released. Dunno why, I just buy them play the 30day if i dont like it i stop (Rift i didn't even last 5 days reminded me of WAR so much!). I will be checking this out no doubt and since i enjoy story telling a lot in games (and lore) TOR looks to fit the bill nicely
