    Yes, clearly no game is better or worse than any other game. Everyone is happy and equal.

    Of course, that doesn't leave any compelling reason to pick this game over any other, either.

    I guess I'd better give up before I get in trouble for not being on the "Rainbows and Unicorns" fanteam in this forum, though.

    Game has bugs and exploits, just like any other. It is not enough reason to pick this over another and singling out that fact is pointless and does nothing. Get something specific, like a feature or something.

    I am the last person who is a "fanteam" you can ask karizee about that (I often point out she over advertises on things that are not that great). I give credit where credit is due, don't single out a common issue in 100% of all games to make one game look bad. It is just plain stupid...

    If your response to feedback and bugs is, "It's ok, every game has problems." then yes, you're basically presenting equality as an argument.

    Again, if someone is asking specifically about PvP, and the feedback is that the PvP is poorly implemented, poorly supported, and suffers from very significant exploits that have persisted for more than a year, then that's probably useful feedback with which they can make a choice.

    "Naw, none of that means anything, all games have bugs and issues!" is not useful to them.

    Twisting my words to make it sound like I said it as a non issue doesn't support your argument either. Ignoring half of what I said doesn't help either.

    Try again.

    Not really, you can do almost nothing and still get rank up if you have the time.

    Where, exactly, am I twisting your words? Did you not say repeatedly that other games have bugs and issues, so making any choices about GW2 based on bugs and issues is silly?

    TESO is the most similar MMO to GW2 there is but alot lot better. The way the character controls, the movement and combat is just lovely! It feels like a top quality third person action game but in an MMO, it really is great!
    I would hold out from GW2, play some of the free ones like people are saying.. sign up for TESO beta and hope you get in to try it out, its got real potential

    You act like I said it in some happy jolly attitude making it a non issue. It is a big issue, in all games. Singling out one game is stupid though.

    Ok, so should the poster in question disregard the feedback about the state of sPvP in this game?

    The state of other games seems entirely irrelevant to the topic at hand.

    Yeah, that's all fine and such, but that doesn't mean that I can't base someones pvp experience by rank, most people dont idle away to a high pvp rank.

    I would say no. Try some of the F2P games in the market first like Rift, Tera and Neverwinter since there is zero cost involved. If you don't like those try GW2, but I would say a definite no.

    of course you would say no Sharuko

    Well, he has given some decent advice like others at least :P

    Too many answers here without decent explanations. I'd advise waiting for a free weekend to try it out. Or you could browse the videos/streams. In case you do buy it and end up hating it, you do have 30 days to get a refund from ANet.

    This is where you put words in peoples mouths, the answer is no and I never implied to do such. The same can be said in reverse about my feedback.

    If you count PvP experience by how much a person farms sure. You should look at leaderboards over rank imo.

    Speaking of streams, there's a small 2v2 tournie happening right now. This is custom arena of course, there is no 2v2 mode ingame.

    Another thing you can do is if you buy it from the official site you have a certain period of time that you can refund it if you don't like it.

    Ok, then I guess you were just speaking on the principle and not about this particular instance? That's cool.
