I hope the game is centered around pvp, looking forward to this server vs server feature.

The game is focused much more around PVE than GW1 was. I feel some hardcore PVP people will be disappointed until they add more PVP options.

PVP:
WvsWvsW: Which is 3 large areas, however the 3 areas are identical to each other.
Competitive PVP: There is only 2 competitive PVP maps in the beta, and I don't believe they said if there will be more or not.
No different PVP modes, game types, arenas, etc. You capture points, gain points, and win or lose.
No open world PVP outside of WvsWvsW area.

PVE:
Dynamic Events
Whole world to explore
Lots of dungeons
Many dynamic world bosses
They have a dedicated team working to keep adding more dynamic events after launch.
The list goes on and on...

We'll have to wait and see.. they will probably add more PVP content but it might not be there at launch.

So its a pve game thus far =/ A little disapointed, ah well will play tera for the pvp and gw2 with the gf since she only likes pve.

Again you cant really compare the 2 until after release - Pointless adding high lvl PvP content right at the start Same goes for PvE i think within a few months after release when it gets peole at higher lvls then we will see where its going to be aiming, i still think that it will have just as high interest in the PvP side like it did with GW1

This makes me a happy camper. PvE has always been my kinda thing for MMOs.

My point still stands, I think. I mean compared to a lot of the other games you mentioned.
Quote:
Borderlands 2 £27 (~$44), tera online £29, diablo 3 £27 (~$47),
If Borderlands 2 is anything like the first one, then I might get 100 hours in it before I grow bored. I just played the DIII Beta a few minutes ago. They can keep it for that money. I wouldn't pay more than $25 for it. It's essentially a redressed Arcade game very similar to the first two.
But as I said, if GW2 is ANYTHING like the first one, then I know for a fact that I will have at least 2000 hours of game play to look forward to. I think that's a lot of value for £40 (~$65). That's all I'm saying. As a 40+ year old father, I look at things in terms of bang for the buck, most times.

So you played the first GW for around 2000 hours? How much of that was PvE content? from my experience and those of people i know the Game kinda dies for PvE at Max lvl and that PvP seemed to get the most interest from the Devs with all those Competitions and such. The main reason i will be holding back before buying is simply as we have no idea what end game content is going to be like, if its much like the 1st game PvP over PvE content then i could very well skip the game altogether PvP for me has always been a means to an end (getting to max lvl) and that i have rarely touched PvP content in ANY MMO that i have played once i have hit the lvl cap.

Though PvP might be improved over other games - i still consider PvE content to be far more important as i love raids/dungeons and such biggrin.gif
Though saying that - the WvWvW seems quite interesting, its just a shame that i cant get in on the beta and decide before it comes out frown.gif

I haven't kept track of it, but if I had to hazard a guess, I would say that I have spent less than 250 hours in PvP. I am not in a GvG or HoH guild and never got into the 4v4 content much. I have spent some time in Jade Quarry, but that's about it.

I enjoyed beating the PvE content with all of the classes. Then I spent a great deal of time maxing out some of the harder PvE Titles - Cartographer, Skill Hunter, Guardian, etc... Then there were the hundreds of SF and UW runs. Now-a-days I spend my time helping other people - new players mainly - and working on Race Titles. I am at Rank 8 for Asura, for instance.

The Expansion Content came a good time for me too. I am a Fantasy / SciFi fan. I think that this explains why I have always been more interested in the story line content than in just going head to head with someone.

Just wanted to correct some of your points.

WvWvW: 4 maps. 3 maps are the "home" map for 1 server. 1 map that is no ones home server and has a HUGE keep in the middle that had to be defended from multiple sides at a time.

Competitive PvP: 2 maps in the beta as you said. However, in a recent developer commentary video, Jonathan Sharp stated that there are 2 additional maps not in beta. Each map has different mechanics. For example, Battle of Kyhlo has the added trebuchets to bombard the middle point while Forest of Niflhel has 2 npc boss mobs that will give the killing team a buff as well as 50 points added to their score.

I'm super excited for the PvP in this game. Heck, I'm excited for everything. biggrin.gif
