Ya the game is really not optimized. My GPU's are hardly doing anything and my CPU only maxes out one cores worth of processing power. Windows 7 splits that over the six cores so it "looks" like the game is only using about 16% each core viewing with performance monitor. Developers really need to stop designing single threaded games. Modern hardware basically goes unused.

Depends on user base. Not everyone has quad cores. A lot of people I knew are all still on duo cores, believe it or not.

 

They should design an option to enable multithread mode or not. Similar setting like in some games such as Left 4 Dead. Multi-Cores (Enabled / Disabled).

This allow the game to scale on system type.

 

100% of the time my GTX 680 is sitting at low usage and same for my CPU. I simply want GW2 to eat my system but it refused to do so.

I think that ranger is the most popular class so far, from the vast amount of them I see. :/

I'm going to try Ranger today. What's pet control like in GW2? Do you have to tell it when to CC if it has a CC, when to do this, that, etc? Or is it just there to do extra damage?

I hate controlling pets, I don't really have the focus to ever control a pet successfully whilst doing other things.

I've been trying to get some footage recorded from the beta, but due to limited harddrive space and dealing with latency and fps lag, it's hard to find good clips that get recorded.

Here is a quick 2min video of me doing a 1v1 elementalist vs elementalist fight. Enjoy!

You're a hell of a lot better than I am!!!! Great video, learned quite a bit. What weapons are you using? They look solid for PvP on an Ele. Using a staff is too difficult because once a melee gets on me, I'm done.

TBH, they just spend most of the time dead in PvP, you don't get anywhere near the healing required to offset the incidental AoE that mauls them. They all have one ability that differs per pet, but it's nothing special. When they're alive, they're extra DPS and and act as tanks in PvE.

On a side note,
This weekend has validated everything I expected. The WvW is better than good, likely great once performance is ironed out. However, the organized PvP feels like a 3D moba without the long-term strategy behind it, and the PvE, well, it's still PvE and only enjoyable in short stints (I feel the same way about TOR's, although WoW's PvE is horrendous).\

Also, the flashing white when hit by an arrow has to go. Just come on.

I still for the life of me cannot figure out WvWvW, I can never find combat, just people scouting around.

I played a PvP-game against a team that was almost all Mesmer's. It was about the most idiotic thing I've ever seen in a MMORPG. Dozens of retarded clones running around zapping you and insta-killing you with so much garbage effects you cannot see anything. Was playing a Elementalist at the time who is like wet toilet paper.

Some serious balancing is needed in this game. It's like the Michael Bay game of video games, put so much worthless crap on the screen to "wow you" rolleyes.gif that it just get's ridiculous.
