Lol, it doesn't.

It's nothing like wow at all.

If WoW was infrared, GW2 would be ultraviolet. Totally opposite end of the spectrum.

Just skim through http://www.overclock.net/pc-games/96...oming-mmo.html

Count me in as well if you want to get a party together. Just got the trilogy and EotN a week or two ago; though Mass Effect has been stealing my time. lol

I'm chill with cash shop's as long as they are not a required factor to be competitive.

They aren't, they are just for cosmetic purposes only.. things like masks, costumes, or other vanity items - just as they were in GW1.

Please don't screw this up, Arenanet. The hype is building so hard for this game, I hope it'll be able to live up to it.

I'm trying as best as possible to reserve my judgment until it's released to a mass audience. Same with TOR, but I'm afraid that one's going to end up being another generic MMO...

My buddy has been trying to get me into Rift but it feels just like WoW... But with Rifts to defeat. I've never been that fond of WoW in the first place, but when I play other MMORPG's I can't help but feel that WoW has it down pretty good. It still doesn't interest me enough to keep me involved though. Xbox LIVE still draws me more than WoW.

But THIS looks nice, I've heard nothing but good things over the years. Now that I finally have my own rig (that I built with help from Overclock! Just throwing that out there ) I'm going to try the first one for the trial period and pick up GW2 when it comes out, looks really good.

Coming from wow GW will be very different but just give it time now GW2 is gonna be diff altogether they have restructured everything.

I feel bad for rift, most of their playerbase will disappear once gw2 is released

I'm sticking with wow though.

Edit: Before I get flamed, I have tried a few different games, and apart from eve, wow always seems to win it for me, although I dont play more than 10 hours per week... I wish blizzard would get their a$$'s in gear and start upgrading the game. I think the biggest difference they could make is talent structure or visuals
