=/ I saw something that was already disappointing on the pvp side.
Ok, so the sPvP is either Hot Join or tournament, the problem is, they're the same thing. The one difference is that tournaments are rated and Hot Joins aren't. IMO it would had made more sense if the Tournaments had been Arena matches, as opposed to simply Rated BGs.
Which leads me to the other problem I see in PVP: There's 3 battlegrounds, yet all 3 have the exact same objective. Its basically AB. That's kinda lame, Imagine if wow's next expansion added 3 BGs, but all 3 of them were just reskins of Warsong Gulch, hell, look at the shitstorm made over how boring it was that Cataclysm added 2 bgs, that had the same objectives as AB and WSG.
I know they said they'll add more different objectives at later points, but having the exact same objective at launch is still sorta lame.
So, as far as pvp goes, you either do AB, or Rated AB. over and over, enjoy. =/
There are no duels either, nor any sort of world pvp, you just NEVER will be able to attack other players outside of the designated PVP zones.
The only saving grace I see for the PVP on GW2 (and its so awesome it almost makes up for the lackluster....... everything else related to pvp) is the WvWvW (sheehs, I'm tempted to just call it SvS or "Server vs Server" as that's basically what this is, and its much easier to pronounce....... my english isn't that good)
I've read all the details about it and its AWESOME. Yep, its like a glorious mix of Alterac Valley with Lineage II's Castle sieges, multiplied by 11. Truly amazing. I'm sorta scared of the kind of lag one would get by pitting so many people together, but whatever, I still get the feeling its gonna be GLORIOUS! But seriously, I hope they improve the other aspects of pvp, because I'm not very keen on just doing AB over and over and over again.

I occasionally dropped to ~30 fps, which was annoying (mostly in the center of LA), but otherwise it was a good test.

They picked a very charr dance for the charr, but man........ The human one is so good. XD
For anyone that noticed that leap, jump shot, etc made you instantly dead this post from Reddit seems interesting:
Sucks to be speed hackers.One of the devs told me that the game thought that because we were moving as fast that it thought we were "cheating", and they had to go change the limit in which the game thinks we are doing something we shouldn't be doing.

I still don't know what profession Im going to play. D:
When is the deadline for pre-ordering?(if you want to nick in on Friday) And is it only available through their own site, or can you get it from retailers such as Gamestop?
