    What are you most looking forward to in GW2?

    I searched the forums and couldn't find a similar thread.. So let us have one.

    For me, a completely new PvP type of style (WvWvW). I really dislike the whole one side vs another side kind of ordeal and a three sided PvP archetype seems to me to be the most effective way to handle world balance. (similar to a system of checks and balances where one side gets too strong and the other two attempt to balance it out.)

    PvP is huge for me and all that added PvE stuff just makes me want this game so much more.

    That fresh shiny new pioneering feeling of exploring the game and building a new community to document and share information with. That's what I'm looking forward to the most. Reading forums with in depth discussion about PvP gameplay and experimentation is what puts a fire in my belly.

    To be slightly more on topic:

    Probably exploring things for the first time. I can't wait to run around the cities especially.

    The stray, poor cats association?

    Mine is to delve into an open MMO world with lots of lore, with a fresh feeling. Like an adventurer. WoW did get boring.
    And I'm also looking forward to it's combat style, so it won't feel like a copy.

    I also want to throw in there that it is going to be interesting trying to coordinate people for world bosses when they are so massive. (I tend to be the raid or dungeon leader in all games that I play, so it is going to be quite fun to figure it out)

    A fresh start!

    I currently still play WoW and I have met some of the coolest people ever and it made me so sad when they finally quit the game because it's stale and imbalanced heavily in PvP. In Guild Wars 2 my friends and I are all going to be playing on the same server with a fresh start and I cannot wait for it to come out! What I'm looking for in the game is a awesome leveling experience (I really love the personal story concept) and overall PVE. I hope the PVP aspect is very competitive and balanced because my friends and I are definitely more PVP focused. Overall I really do like the story of GW2 and the class profession combinations. I can list a whole bunch of things that I liked but I'll just keep it here.

    Broadly speaking, this sense of exploration and discovery is what I'm looking forward to the most, as well. I also like that it will be especially rewarding in Guild Wars 2 due to the Dynamic Event system. Other games have had vast worlds to explore, but few have made active exploration such a crucial part of the PvE gameplay. Love it.

    Playing with friends again (My friends don't play enough Team Fortress 2.). This is what I liked most in WoW, and what got me started in the first place. I know quite some people already who'll play GW2, and I'll probably make new friends as well, so that's cool as well.

    Dynamic Events/rewarding players for working together and making it easy to do so. That would top my very long list of things I am looking forward to.

    Release date!

    Im looking forward to how the Lore of the game fleshes itself out, experiencing dynamic events, doing WvWvW, and exploration, And of course playing with friends.

    Bahhh. Dynamic Events sounds sooo great. I love how Anet is taking their time to make the most perfect game but I don't want to freaking wait for it.

    So much impatience.

    Realm vs Realm vs Realm so we finally can get PvP the way it was ment to be in a mmo.
    There are 10 kinds of people. Those who understand binary and those who dont.

    What am I most looking forward to in this game? The system requirements being released. I haven't been keeping up on many things GW2, because I don't want to get my hopes up of being able to play it and then finding out my computer couldn't handle it on horribly low graphics.

    Considering this game has been in development for 6 years I am going to *hopefully* assume it wont require a SUPER high end pc to run on. My pc is an enthusiast pc, but many of my friends cant afford/dont want to fork over the dough for a souped up pc.
