I'd say you'd have to tune the game towards the Performance end of the scale as opposed to the Quality end. Heck, if I were a serious PvP'r I'd do that anyway, no matter what level of tech my rig had. I used to dumb down my game when I played league DoD. Every benefit helps.

I feel the issue with that in this game though is seeing what the enemy is casting in GW2 is very important. If you turn down graphics / particles, you may miss a spell they're casting, etc. Games that you can run on low without issue, and in fact get an advantage are games like Starcraft II.

20FPS?

 

I'm seeing 40-65FPS in most area and overcrowded zone low as 32FPS. But I do know it should run way higher in retail.

Regardless of the poor optimization the beta had, your system and its specifications probably carried itself through everything tongue.gif

i was getting anywhere form 10 fps with max settings in major cities to 80 fps out in the wilderness...crazy.

my buddy who has a slightly worse system then i do..seemed to get a few more fps they myself...

i wonder if my Norton Security Suite has anything to do with it....hmmm....

my frame rate was only bad in the tutorials and of course during the legendary rabbit fight.

I got Norton Security Suite for free (Comcast)...i researched a lot before installing...everyone says its MUCH better than before. A lot lighter with resources. But idk...hard to tell.

http://www.av-comparatives.org/images/stories/test/summary/summary2011.pdf <-- Symantec got Gold Award for Performance
http://www.av-test.org/en/tests/test-reports/janfeb-2012/

FYI - I used to have ESET (had to pay for it)...which I LOVED, but heard it's web secuirty wasn't too great. Symantec (Norton) is suppose to have very good protection. But like I said...it's basically impossible for me to judge.

It becomes too hard to balance and it makes warrior boring by comparison and also weapons wont mean much apart from looks.
I really like the way it is now, there are PvP, PvE, solo and group weapons, weapons for AoE, weapons for bosses, ranged and melee.

i'd like to see more skill selection, and izzy has actually said many times now that it's easier for them(nearly instant) to add or tweak skills and see how they'll work in game. it's actually an easier job overall to balance this game vs the first one, due to improved dev tools.
