Hello everyone on MMO-Champion! I am Kaariana, long time lurker, almost 6 years reading the site. Loved every minute of it. Been a long time World of Warcraft player, and have taken forays into different MMOs. I recently had the chance to help a Forbes contributor with a review for Guild Wars 2. I was a bit skeptical at first, since I have never played Guild Wars 1. All I knew that is was a heavily PvP based game, and that the PvE content was not all there. But after doing some research on the series, I felt it deserved a chance, and just had to try it out. This is the first of several articles that Carol Pinchefsky is writing about Guild Wars 2. First one is posted here:
Now to explain the perspective that I wrote this article in. Couple of things:
-I have never played any version of Guild Wars up to this point.
-I went in blind...never playing in the beta, and avoid as many videos as I could.
-Most of the reading I did was in the MMO-Champ GW2 subforum.
I intented for this article to not bash WoW, or anything along those lines. I only wanted to give it a fair shot. These were my first impressions by the way. I know that there is still things GW2 can improve on, and I've made note of these things to Carol. Please let me know what you think, and feel free to give the article a read if it is worth your time. Thank you MMO-Champ!
