WoW wasn't any better than TOR is now until they put out expansions, and in some cases, not even then.
Most people say the exact opposite.. that classic WoW was the best, BC was also pretty good, then it went to crap. I still feel early WoW was the best, before it catered to casuals.
SWTOR has better graphics than WoW, but that doesn't make the game. IMO, SWTOR is garbage and WoW has also became garbage. I see most players spending the majority of their time in GW2.

Levels mean practically nothing in GW2 and that goes double for PVP. All PVP is done with the exact same stats at the same level, soon as you enter PVP you scale up to 80 and get the best possible gear. The cash shop leaks were true, but it is a work in progress.. they've changed a TON of things since then. It's still under heavy NDA and nothing was finalized, everything in there was for feedback from the press.
If people really want to spend money on XP scrolls, then let them. You can also get them in game with gold, and they are rather useless either way. Being level 1 or 80 really doesn't matter much in the game... What you are doing at level 1 is the same thing you will be doing at level 80 end game, not sure why someone would want to rush it. Let them feed their money to ANet, it will result in a better game and they get no real benefits for blowing all that money.Edited by Murlocke - 4/7/12 at 11:49am
