i was just browsing Reddit when i came across this thread http://www.reddit.com/r/Guildwars2/c..._the_dat_file/ (credit to http://www.reddit.com/user/that_shaman) and i am really optimistic about where Anet is trying to take GW2.
i have been talking to the friends that i PvP with about the best ways to monetize tPvP since release and permanent finishers was what i suggested. i have the armor set that i love (Rank 30) and want to keep so the only thing that drives me to tPvP is just the PvP itself and finishers and dyes. my favorite finisher besides the pro Rank ones is definitely the Super Bomb one from SAB and i will gladly spend $10 for a permanent one.
another thing they could do is add progression that would also allow players to earn their respective Rank finishers as permanent ones as well.
and if the LFG tool that they plan on implementing is as robust as they want it to be covering PvP, WvW and PvE then i can only see it being another plus to helping people find groups for activities from within the game, which can only serve to bolster participation in the various gametypes of GW2.
on a side note: the one thing i would really love is the ability to buy/open a specific number of a stack from the drop down right-click menu for both vendor, inventory AND mystic forge panes, my fingers are getting hella tired clicking items for days.
