[PCG] Guild Wars 2 PvP to feature 300 player server vs. server battles and siege warfare

post #1 of 34

Quote:
Armies of a hundred players will get the chance to fight for their server in Guild Wars 2′s massive three-way PvP battles. Each army will fight for control of The Mists, an enormous zone packed full of vast NPC controlled fortresses that you’ll have to take and hold using trebuchets, catapults and siege golems

This is pretty ambitious. As more and more news is revealed about this game it gets me more excited!

And to top it all off there's no subscription fee!

Now, if they actually release the game I would be happy.

This sounds amazing and all, but I feel it is a little too ambitious. With that many simultaneous connections and the possibility of one shady connection, it sounds very hard to accomplish. However, I do not know anything about game development and am eager to see how well it plays out. I would play this mode so hard!

Bold claims... I doubt u will be able to handle 300 vs 300 especially with the level of detail they displayed.

Last I heard it was 500 per zone in WvW. 4 zones.

I hope it's like the old Hall of Heroes - that place looked so cool!

Most of the rest of the mists was ugly though.

And if it's anything like Guild Wars, expect Koreans to completely dominate the Hall of Heroes.

There's no need really, just read-up on the story if you really want to get into it.
I've always found the timeline quite helpful, and the you can branch-out on the details from the links: http://wiki.guildwars.com/wiki/Timeline
