I don't care for fighting Mesmer's in PvP. Just too much spam going on, feels like I am playing street fighter.

The combat looks visceral and snappy on your vid. Prolly due to you high fps. thumb.gif That 3960x of yours is a beast. I wont be surprised if 1 core of your CPU is carrying the whole game.

Considering I really don't know how any abilities work yet in PvP (because you're max level), and what enemy abilities look like, and what those abilities do / mean, yeah... it's hectic.

That was the key to successful GW1 PvP play. Especially regarding using interrupts to counter. Unfortunately, another difficulty for GW2 is learning your Class Interrupt skills. Just as there is no dedicated Healer any more, there is no dedicated Interrupter either.

Whats the itemization like in PvP aspects? Are the sets of items limited in order to achieve a greater balance or is it "use what u have" like in any other MMO?

Hi, my name is Scribby and I am a recovering Warcrack addict. I last took a hit on May 21, 2010 and have been MMORPG clean ever since.

I remember my first taste of Warcrack. It was a beautiful Spring day in Seattle, Washington. I was visiting an old friend in my home town. We were all sitting on his back deck listening to the sounds coming off of the lake finishing another bottle of wine when he asked if I wanted to check something out. As we left our wives to chatter on about this or that I had no idea how my life would change over the next five years.

He started telling me about this new MMORPG World of Warcraft and how he felt it was the one of the greatest gaming experiences of his life. Having been a longtime gamer, I LOVED my Commodore 64, I was intrigued. He told me he just started on a particular PvP server, one that had just been opened, and was leveling a gnome warrior. I watched in awe for almost two hours as he traveled along, killing, questing, chatting, and just generally exploring Kalimdor. I was hooked.

Once I returned to California I immediately purchased the game, started up a toon, and my first hit of Warcrack sucked me in. Over the next five years I spent countless hours leveling, questing, chatting - you name it - if it was Warcrack, I was there. 24 hour raid sessions? Check. Paying for my own Vent server? Check. Waiting in midnight release lines for expansions? Check. Arguments with the wife over my addiction? Double check.

I was hooked and I truly believed that I would be a Warcrack addict for the rest of my life (or at least until I could not longer point and click.) However, in the summer of 2009 something seemed to change. The experience wasn't so immersive. The towns seemed to lose their luster. The fact I had seven level 80 toons didn't seem to matter any more. I was becoming . . . bored. And fast. Soon, I would notice how dusty and out of shape my toons had become the few times I would log on. My svelt female priest gained 60 pounds and could barely raise her staff to chain heal now. It had become all so sad.

I officially cancelled my Warcrack addiction on May 21, 2010 and haven't taken another hit since. Even through all the new content, emails about free weekends, weeks, or even discounted play time. I am forever over my Warcrack addiction. And I feel clean.

I am writing about my experience at 8:00 am after having spent the last week on the road traveling for work. I flew back into California yesterday morning and after a glorious day in the sun with my family got some time to go through all my email and saw my Guild Wars 2 closed beta event weekend email. I had completely forgot about it. After everyone was all snug in bed (well my wife at least - my son was playing COD with his buddies till 2 am) I fired up GW2.

After the last 8 hours of play time I must now report I am an official GW2Toker. I will remember my first hit of GW2 and look forward to many more hits. Eight uninterrupted hours of play time, after seven days on the road, convinces me of one thing - I will love all the future hits of GW2 and cannot wait for more.

However, I do know this won't be like my first addition to Warcrack. Something in me has changed. Or maybe it's simply that MMORPGs have a kind of "been there, done that" feel for me. I know I will be a longtime GW2Toker and will gladly spend my money, but I don't get the sense it will consume my life for large periods of time. I will say the game is simply stunning in its look, feel, story line, and overall game play. I like it. I actually love it and that comes from a player with no real GW experience. I have no idea of the back story, no idea how to properly train or level, no idea about any of the mechanics of this game, but I love it.

Hi. My name is Scribby and I officially fell off the MMORPG wagon on April 29, 2012. And it felt great.

I played an hour or two of GW2 and watched a total of an hour or two of half the classes I myself played a thief aka rougue (WOW) and found it to be blah. Combat was stale and confusing (of course I maybe did it wrong) but coming as an ex top rogue and many other classes I know how to play these games sadly and was not impressed with GW2 but I do wish them the best.

Gear, inventory, items, all of this was confusing in my limited playtime it also did not help my anger that I kept getting nice blue weapons to drop all of which my thief could not use lol.

The maps are beautiful the graphics are great its basically like looking at what and where WOW should be 6years later. The game looks fantastic and so do the females in the game (all 10s) while the guys are just blah (noho mo). Graphically the game is really great especially considering its a one time fee and the rest is for fun!

I gladly look forward to testing it more with my buddy who has the account and hope they actually read all the comments on the beta program they setup because by god as an experienced WOW gamer and many others at top levels including pvp over the years this game was confusing new and just downright ehh.

May the patches come!
