I like how much effort they put into their chance of success in Asia. If it does well, who knows what new doors this can open for Anet and therefore GW2?
A great trailer!
Asia is a very big (and serious) market so it's only logical to put that much effort in.
Aye, its a huge market so no surprises about the effort put in. oh god so bad, so so bad.
Not going to lie, the easy gameplay of GW2 doesn't seem like it would do well in china.... it's not even a grindy game....
Here is a nice little hint, all western MMOs used to be very grindy. But as time went by people wanted more in less time and for good riddance. It is very likely that eastern players will go this route as well.
aye, isn't it the koreans who are steroetypically grinders?
Honestly, you pretty much get fully geared just from logging in.
This will happen in asia aswell most likely, but probably not yet as is shown with the asian figures for grindy mmos compared to the western.

As for PVP, its really grindy indeed and will fit nicely into the asian market :-)
Does anyone know how the game will be sold in China? B2P same, or some other system?
