Didnt know you could befriend other races ingame. I know there is the frog guys but im sure everyone is always friendly with them. How will the game deal with ppl that are playing together but one is friendly to a race and the other is hostile?
factions have not really brought anything good in my eyes.
I actually think Factions have just made people angry at each other.
Even though it is just a joke, saying one faction is better than the other is kinda "not right" to me.
Horde vs Alliance does have it's charm, but it also has it's "game racism".
'Befriend' another race (go with Grawl. Grawl are slow), don't let them know you've 'befriended' the Skritt, convince them to go to war. (Hey Grawl, I hear the Skritt were making fun of.. what do you losers worship again?)
The only thing that I find lacking in GW2 atm is lack of world pvp as in "you always gotta watch your back" feeling.
I really loved it back in vanilla (and bit of tbc, and wotlk - daily/farm hubs where people NEEDED to farm), sadly in cata world pvp doesnt exist at all (except 1st week of its launch where I had some fun ganking and being ganked while leveling), in wotlk it ended with end of sons of hodir farmage (ezmode rep boost anyone?).
However I hope Ill be happy with WvWvW, or some new "castle sieges" (this could be really fun objective based gametype - like Rush in BF3) or whatever they will have/might add.

You dont like World PvP, fine. I do and I feel bit upset that one of such aspects of PvP wont be in GW2 (which I can live without, since atm in WoW its dead anyway - World of Queuecraft).
In WvWvW everyone of your server is on your side. There's been mention of two smaller servers ganging up on a bigger one, but I don't know if there are actual mechanics in place for that or it's something that can just happen.
There isn't any kind of Free For All Deadmatch.

Essentially it will be team based to an extent that you have other people from on your server that will be on your 'side' but due to the size of the maps, amount and size of different objectives, and the amount of people WvWvW can hold(hundreds of people), I'm sure it will give the feeling of FFA at times.
