Anyone from EU want to run through the Factions/Nightfall campains?
Personally the idea of having no tanks I find brilliant. Logically it makes much more sense this way and anyone who does pvp would understand this. I don't go hitting on a tank class when I see the squishy healer close by healing him. I CC the tank and switch targets. All you do is not allow the boss to have one shot abilities and it becomes a much more interesting fight sharing aggro.
GW2 just keeps on sounding better and better.
I already pre-ordered the game :P
Thanks Pjammiez for the signature!
Kinda doubth its gonna be any good in the end since areanet doesnt release any new content often from what i remember from 3-4 years ago when i played the crap.
Basicly no monthly fee = barely any new content until an expansion hits ages down the line after the game have gone stale.
No monthly fee does not equal no content.
WoW patches are coming out very very very slowly (we had 9 months of ICC and now we've got 6 months of the same content and still no major content patch).
So then, are you saying a monthly fee is needed to get regular content updates? Lets use WoW: Cataclysm since it is well known. (This isn't a WoW vs GW, it's about the monthly fee statement claiming that a monthly fee is needed for regular content updates) Basically $15 dollars a month for just shy of 5 months to get 4.1 which has very little content in it and no new raid tier. So that means you spent just shy of $75 for the little bit of content 4.1. That is a lot of time and money for a small content update that the monthly fee gave you.
--> So no, a no monthly fee does not mean that there is barely any new content updates. ArenaNet showed that a no monthly fee won't interfere with content updates. What does interfere with content updates is when the majority of the staff go to make another game while leaving about 5 people or so to run the previous one. Those handful of people still update it monthly and add new content every couple of months.
Again, the above is NOT a WoW vs GW but rather a debate on if a monthly fee is needed for regular content updates or not.

On topic, tanks are NOT needed in a MMO. As stated before, why would a super smart monster or person completely ignore the caster in the back keeping everyone healed up? The fact that they DO ignore said players in any MMO is stupid. Bosses should be beating on everyone equally, and ALL players should be helping to keep everyone alive and not taking a ton of dmg.
That will make encounters more complex, well thought out, better planned, and more fun.
We are WARRIORS man! If we can't make it bleed, we will sure as hell dent the f%^ck out of it!
Yes, I like how there is no specific person you need to rely on or if someone dies you won't wipe.
The only thing I had a problem with was that you could revive as many times as you want, but they said it will take longer and longer the more you revive, which is a good balance.
