    Unless there is lots of lag, this will be just awesome. I can definately see myself spend majority of my time there once I have hit level cap on 1-3 characters or even before.

    Though, can anyone with more knowledge of gw2 lore tell me if there is any in lore reason for us to be figthing over that place?

    Honestly, it all sounds amazing in theory, we all knew that, even before this new piece of info, but will it work? That's the only thing that worries me, and we will only find out when it's out...even Anet doesn't know.

    DaoC had some good PvP, from what I hear, but I also hear about some big problems with that model.

    What I'm saying: Yes, it does sound amazing, and yes, if done right it will be the best PvP ever...but don't get overhyped, there's a lot of obstacles to jump over if this is to work as intended!

    Those new screenies are awesome, gives a new scale for the WvWvW area (if they're taken from there?).

    Do we know how many WvWvW will be allowed per server?

    Let's say you have a 1000 players who want to do WvWvW on a server, will they have to join a queue and wait for a spot?

    I think they are on the right track by making there so much to do that even not trying to help, you are helping. Whereas there is zero reason to ever fight in between objectives in most current BGs. But I guess even then you could argue that they are still occupying other bad players on the other team

    Um, this is all I have wanted from a game since DAoC. And now my dream is becoming a reality. As for people just running around doing nothing but ganking...well, that's not what happened in DAoC. You'd have bands of people that would just run around trying to gank people, but each realm (at least the ones I played with/against) seemed to pull together when the ultimate prize was greater power for you and your realm...or in this case you and your entire server.

    I highly doubt 90% of people will simply ignore the game and do whatever they feel like doing, but even if it was 50% I'd still be having a ridiculously fun time building siege weapons and attacking keeps or defending my own while the idiots run around looking for an easy kill.

    Im one of the original WoW players that remembers the early Alterac Valleys battles. In fact I was actually in the starting lineup of the first AV battle on our server. Nowadays it just seems to be a case of running past each other to kill the NPC at the end and ignore any PVP content. In the beginning it was about large scale warfare, fighting for every scrap of land, whether it be a graveyard, a tower or a keep. The first battle on my server lasted for nearly 2 days and while I cant claim to have been in that BG for the entire time, I do have some very very fond memories of the time I spent in just that one battle.

    For Arenanet to have designed WvWvW in this way only makes me more excited for Guild Wars 2

    I think the lore was that you're not you when you're there.

    Edit: Then again, I'd rather they just do it, and not make up bad lore or ruin existing lore to have a reason.

    I don't usually pvp, a lot of my friends do but I don't cause I'm not very good at it.

    I've decided I need to get better at pvp now. That, is freaking cool.

    I.. I'm in Love! I excepted great in WvW, but this is beyond great.. I don't think there is a word in the dictionary that could explain how ___________ this is!

    I had no interest in GW2 until I read this.

    After I change my pants, I'm going to have to give this an in-depth look.

    Well, I still enjoy WoW, but it's at a time when there isn't much to do while everyone waits for MoP. SWTOR was absolutely horrible, so GW2 is next. Graphically it looks great and there seems to be some nice features so far. What sweetens the deal is it's free once you buy the game. Even though that was known for a long time, that never enticed me. As I've looked up the game more and more though over the past few months it's caught my interest.

    I know this was posted in The One Thread but this is definitely something that should stand on it's own. It's a lengthy read but anyone that is interested in the pvp of GW2 will love this. I'm still hoping their engines can pull off the very large number of people needed for this to work really well. If they can do that this will be the best pvp of any mmo to date.

    What does everyone else think about this? I hope there's a lot of coverage of this on the 20th because to see this live would be a wet dream of mine.
    I have to stop following these god damn updates and messages. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS GAME ANY LONGER IT HURTS Q___Q....

    Mmm, those screens on the first page . My PC should be able to run it on ultra and enjoy it to the fullest, unless they pull a TOR and **** it up, but i doubt that'd happen

    The only thing that worries me about WvW atm is the lag. I'm REAAAALLLYY hoping it doesn't turn out to be the lagfest that Ilum turned out to be in ToR.
