    Everyone's seen how beautiful GW2 is, and so many people overreacted to those shots on guru. Rly sad tbh. I think most of them have hyped themselves to the point where they're going to be somehow disappointed, no matter how amazing it is.
    Yup, right now there complaining how there is no player 2 player trading.

    So much truth in your last sentence. I've been excited for this since they announced it but while I am definitely giving in to the hype, I have nothing but the best expectations that they'll pull it off. A lot of my friends have that "Well it'll still fall short or the cash shop will sell power, etc" mentality but hey.. Nothing I can say to talk em out of it, I suppose. I tried at least, though.

    There's no *target player*. *Open trade* thing? Do you have a source that that will be permanent or is that just because at the stage of the game currently there's no need for the beta testers to trade? I doubt they wouldn't include something so simple as player to player trading.

    Come on guys, this is Anet we are talking about, they are not going to show us amazing screenshots/videos and then "do a SWTOR" and remove the max graphic settings!

    There wont be player to player trade, instead you mail to the player. The mail is on the user interface so you can do it anywhere you want.

    I like this method better tbh.

    Actually yeah I do remember seeing that. And now that you put it like that, in a way I didn't really notice before, that's perfect actually. I like that idea better too

    Yeah, The coolest thing is that when you send mail to another player you will see a bird take your message to the player.

    Agreed!!

    @Rivehn: That's freakin awesome. ! And yeah I just remembered watching a video where I noticed the mail was just there on the UI and available whenever. That's amazing.

    Something like that would definitely be cool, but I think there's a point where the in game store becomes a bit "too much" and although the idea sounds pretty cool, I think if something that arbitrary would be included in the store it would have reached that "too much" point.

    Edit: Veering a bit off topic though. Does anyone have a link to the screeshots that the OP is referring to?

    Those pics look awesome! Now my only concern is will it run well in large scale pvp battles. One of the huge turn offs for me about ToR was that it ran fine while doing solo quests and running instances. But even if my spec were better than enough, Ilum was still unplayable to the point where my FPS would sometimes go all the way down to 2-3. Anyone know anything about the engine Anet is using for GW2?
