    Have you checked your firewall settings?

    If you're using AVG (you never specified), you'll likely run into problems, check out http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/1179995-AVG-and-GW2 for a solution.

    This may seem like an old cliché but for me winning is the only reward I need in PvP, far too many games are swamped by super geared players steam rolling people only because they have been able to invest a much greater amount of time.
    I know if you put in the time you will also get the 'super gear' eventually, I find it just makes that journey a little less fun getting steam rolled along the way.

    What would you consider a "real" reward?

    Hopefully not gear with stats etc. As that's exactly what broke PvP in WoW.

    The fact that you win should be enough....I mean the point in sPvP is to play it for the fun of playing it thus putting everyone on an equal playing field seems the obvious way to do it and I couldn't be happier that they did.

    I'm not against rewards, as long as they don't affect gameplay in any way which currently they do not and have stated they have no intentions on doing that.

    Spot on.

    Since when did PvP require rewards other than the satisfaction of winning? Oh that's right, since Arena.

    FPS/Strategy games have been entertaining for years with nothing more than the excitement of playing with and against other players, yet for some reason, MMO players need rewards, which just unbalance everything.

    Cosmetic rewards? Sure.

    Since a random post with no connection to others in the thread, people kind of fell for it.
