Druxray: Short answer, Yes, you will miss out. But lets say you missed something and a town got taken over by bad guys, then that will kick off a new and different event that you can take part in. The events dont give loot, they give karma points, so it dosent matter what events you chose to take part in.
But eventually a chain of events will get to it's end if no one does something to stop it or reverse it, and then at some point down the line the chain will restart. So if you missed out one time, you might bump into it next time you're in the area.

Great video, I wish the guy had more footage to work with, but it was informative ,pretty much stated what most of us were already saying. I really can't wait for more new info to be released.

People who no nothing about the game keep posting that it is not persistent because they think just cause the first one wasn't GW2 won't be. The game is no longer completely instanced, the only instanced areas are dungeons and personal story. Watch some videos, read up, and get facts before posting completely false statements.
Persistent world: A persistent world (PW) is a virtual world that continues to exist even after a user exits the world and that user-made changes to its state are, to some extent, permanent. Check
Open World: An open world is a type of video game level design concept where a player can freely roam a virtual world. Check
GW2 is open world and persistent, end of discussion.

Don't get me wrong, I want GW2 to succeed, I know I'll be playing it, but I fear for this game.
After EQ, EQ2, WoW, Rift, Aion, Age of Conan, and many other games I haven't even mentioned, I think consumers are tired of high-fantasy MMO's. This is where ToR's power is going to come from. Other than SW:G which has been defunct for years, EVE, and ST:O, there isn't a Sci-Fi MMO IP out there at the moment.
Again, I hope I'm wrong. I hope to god I'm wrong, but I just see consumers going "Alright, I'm done with 10 years of the same old fantasy shit. Time to move on."

Also I play fantasy games exclusively, the last non fantasy game I played was probably Doom 2.
