It's going to be pretty similar. However, you will be able to customize it to a greater extent with marks and crests which are similar to gems or runes in other games. Gear will also have varying attributes. It's not completely clear, but if there is a difference in stats it will be negligible. It seems to be kind of a middle ground between GW1 and other MMO's. Remember though, the arranged PvP will be completely even and everyone will have the same gear. In WvWvW you still get to use your own gear.

Some decent info here.

I really wanted in so I could take a lot of videos to upload to Youtube on monday since NDA drops for the weekend event then I believe.

But look on the bright side, now we don't have to go through withdrawal when the weekend event is over.

I agree with you guys on liking the new shinyes and that ultra-rare gear. But, I know for myself and a lot of other people, they just don't have the time to be that 'hardcore' dungeon farmer. I know the 'hardcore' crowd generally hates the casual gamer crowd that "ruins" their game by making it too easy, but it is nice to be able to not HAVE to be on daily, at least for those who can't be.

Some sort of balance between the two would be awesome, but that's been really hard to do from what I've seen. Maybe an always static maxed stats PvP with PvE that has a sort of very small stat differential for the 'hardcore' group?

I just saw a facebook post from GW2 that their going to have micro transactions. Can anyone confirm this. I hope this is wrong the pay to win games are very unfair.

WoW has micro transactions. Nobody seems to complain there.

Micro transactions are just a way of life in gaming anymore, plus the items they will be selling in their store will be purely cosmetic so won't be game breaking, not only that but the fact that gems can be bought with gold or real money makes for a level playing field.
