I will look into this game after they bundle all sorts of expansions together for a low price, hate getting sucked into a game that will release Expansions every year or more

So you rather play a game that has a monthly sub and still releases Expansions every other year?

I have to agree, i have played the first Guild Wars and i have to agree, very disappointing and very boring game play. The way Guild Wars was made seems WAY too obsessed with PvP content and seemed to have NO PvE end game content and that seems to go through to Guild Wars 2 as well hearing theres no End game raids or anything is a massive disappointment and they seem to think these dynamic events and the PvP will be enough - i disagree PvP for me is an after thought, something i do when im bored.

I like the sound of it having no Monthly cost, but if it goes with the same idea as Guild Wars 1 with them seeing PvP far more important then end game PvE kinda seems lazy. These dynamic events are cool but NO way will they be good replacements for end game raids - Just like how rift has Rift events (kinda similar, minus after event quests and such) but that also has raids - so why isnt Guild Wars 2?

The news that they will be doing competitions for PvP like they had for Guild Wars 1 seems to show that they see PvP as the "end game" content for Guild Wars 2 is VERY disappointing.

I am glad to see the VERY boring gameplay from Guild Wars 1 hasnt made it into Guild Wars 2 - why couldnt you jump in GW? that really annoyed me, accidently pressing space button and running towards selected target was annoying. The whole Instanced way the game was made was SO horrible, hardly seeing anyone in the world was just so stupid - only seeing people in towns/cities took away from the whole idea of MMOs in my opinion

Guild Wars has a TON of End Game content.

Also, GW is named GUILD Wars because it was designed to be centered on the PvP content.

You are worried that it's not going to be enough like WoW and I am worried that it IS going to be catering to the WoW heads.

This.

With dynamic events, massive amounts of world bosses that scale when people join and instanced raids for gear, endgame is still there. Of course, it isn't your conventional "endgame" farming like in WoW and its clones where you spam one raid for seven months straight and fight everybody else in the party for that one piece of gear.

The PvP in GW looks great, it really is PvP focused in some aspects (Keeping them away from PvE in terms of gear, letting you level in PvP and of course the WvWvW PvP.

I am not trying to be mean, really I am not, but some WoW clunkheads really need to embrace change and differences, sure some won't and will swarm back to their beloved WoW content and wait the next raid while they farm one until the next expansion comes out. Some others though, they may embrace change and see that GW2 is different and is still a great game.

Also in GW2 Skill has A LOT bigger role, it depends on placements, keeping your health up and not just wanting a healer to spam you, etc.

Oh God, I hope so. Aion was such a huge let down. My fear is that GW2 is trying to appeal to the AION/WoW/LotRO/RIFT crowd and straying too far away from what made GW my favorite game of all time.

We all know that WoW and GW were so different in form an function that they covered the gamut of gamers quite completely. It would be a shame for one or the other to become too much like the other... one way or another a group of consumers won't be pleased.

Catering too much too PvP (Like the first) will drastically reduce the numbers of people willing to buy and play it. There MUST be options for both PvP players as well as well PvE players. WoW is a perfect example of that - Maybe a bit towards the PVE side but it still has plenty of content for both types of players.

"With dynamic events, massive amounts of world bosses that scale when people join and instanced raids for gear, endgame is still there."

Is that really enough? I mean sure the challenge will be there each time, but Challenging doesnt equal fun and i fear it could get far to repetitive, just like the events in rift, though i do accept that the GW2 idea of the after effects of a event is far superior with having quests/missions/objectives based around what happens after you win/lose the event which is a great idea. These "Instanced Raids" from everything that i have read, there wont be any raids so what are you talking about???

Sure some people will love it, but will the more casual wow/rift/ect kind of players enjoy it? and dont say that casuals wont mind because they didnt raid or anything, Raiding IS alot of fun and how you go about that is what defines it - you could go the hardcore route and raid 7 days a week or be more casual and only raid a few days a week. For me raiding WASN'T about the gear, it was always about getting together and defeating really hard bosses and such you might have that in a sense with these event bosses but it wont feel the same when you are doing it with a bunch of random people.

Now dont get me wrong, the WvWvW looks insane BUT not everyone enjoys PvP and for a game to what i have seen be so obsessed with it could damage it in the long term, all these competitions for PvPers just makes it seem like they dont care about people that enjoy PvE content more and would rather give there money away to PvPer's then actually spend it on improving PvE content.
