    If they manage to balance the classes all out, most definitely.

    -World PVP.
    There is no Wow style open world PVP. Core philosophy of GW2 is you should never be uphappy to see another player, so someone corpse camping you doesn't really belong in GW2. What GW2 does have, is World vs World vs World PVP, which is 3 servers fighting a 2 week long 24/7 battle on special maps of an enormous scale. Think of it like old AV on every insane drug ever cooked up.

    -Arena [with Scoreboard (or something worth fighting for)]
    There will be many different types of structured 5v5 tournaments. Official tournaments are monthly, with the winners participating in a yearly tournament to crown the best of the best. You can also make player run tournaments.

    -Battlegrounds [Scoreboard (or something worth fighting for)]
    The only BG released so far (more to follow) is 5v5 conquest with 3 capture points, first to 500 points wins.

    -Duels
    They have said they will provide 1v1 options, although they won't be open world (i.e. fighting in front of a city)


    Also, here is an overview on the GW2 site that you might find interesting:

    I can't believe I convinced myself that the GW2 community was generally better than others. With very few exceptions, (at least on these forums) I feel like most posters that are fans of GW2 are also very open and more civil in their discussions. Then I take a look here after Blizzcon...

    Did you ever have your parents tell you "I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed." Yeah, that's me right now. Well, minus the part where you give a shit what I think. Carry on.

    Kind of ironic for you to be talking about poor forum behaviour first thing back after your forum temp ban.

Hoepfully it branches enough to promote a lot of replay-ability and alts. Maybe enough so that a single person would never be able to experience all the branching paths, that would be great.
    Indeed. This, along with Dynamic Events, make me believe that even if you leveled two Charr Warriors with the same weapons, your leveling experience would ALWAYS be different, as opposed to making two Orc Warriors and going from the same zone to the same zone.

    Yes. They have great balance in Guild Wars and I expect to see GW2 in eSport scene. :3
    ArenaNet is godlike at balancing classes.

    Ok I'm hoping someone will be willing to help shed some light and relieve my worries on this game. I'm excited for this game, but I hear there will be no raiding like most traditional MMOs have. So I ask, what will the main meat be for a "hardcore" MMOer like me who focused much of his gametime around raiding? Besides the obvious pvp, questing, story, and regular dungeons, where's the main course? Thanks.

    Elite lvl 80 De content, and dgn.

    If you seen the lvl 40 dragon boss content, imagine fighting the lvl 80 one.
    In which a Dev have said this dragon compare to the lvl 80 elder dragons is a mouse compare to a lion.

    These elder dragons you will have hundreds of other players with you when fighting them, the fight will be massive.

    Then their the heavily De dgns, where every time you go through it a new experience.

    So yes no Raids, however they replace them with other things.

    Plus who knows, their most likely a ton of other content that their still hiding from us.

    After all they have not shown any thing past like lvl 50.

    So who knows all the wonders their is at lvl 80.

    That sounds interesting indeed, but I wonder how they'll be able to get out decently paced content with a no subscription fee. Thank you for the response.

    Well here another response, Gw1 had no subscription fee, it sent out a expansion ever 6 months, which each expansion when first came out was sold for about $40. Until about 2 years ago, when they announce they will start focusing mainly on Gw2, since they started to make it in 2007, however it wasn't until 2009, that they gave it their main focus.

    However still when any type of bug comes up, if pretty much fix right away on gw1.

    Plus if they get 1mil+ people to buy it, they will not just get the money they need, they will make a lot.

    So since the ori Gw sold 7mil copies, I am sure this will sell much more, because it by far better.
