Guild Wars 2

Probably my guild's next MMO.

Apparently this version will be loads better than the first one they churned out a few years back.

F2P also, which is a bonus

I'll probably play it too. Its been in development along time. F2P usually aren't as good in my experience so I'm not sure what to expect and I never played the first one but it's worth a shot I guess.

1st one was brutal. I don't mind saying I honestly flat out despised it.

This one will have better PvE which should attract a larger playbase. The PvP should be very similar to DAOC from what I hear.

I agree F2P usually not as good. Hoping this one is the exception. I should have 10-12 guys going to play when it releases.

When you say very similar to DAOC, do you mean 3 factions? That's the missing ingredient to recent games in PVP.

More like the Realm vs. Realm style you saw in DAOC.

Going to be more to it though. It'll have aspects similar to WoW too where you can casually enter Battlegrounds from anywhere in the world, be a competitive Arena Style pvp'er, do the Realm vs. Realm stuff with strategic capture locations - vehicles, ect... similar to like Wintergrasp... Plus the world PvP elements which will be more interesting than in recent games.

Guild Wars 1 had great PvP... but hte PvE had no draw, so the player base was too small. That's the trick - you gotta nail PvE, or nobody is gonna play.

They look to have corrected that with this edition

I'm hoping Realm vs Realm vs Realm. With only 2 factions, PVP becomes "you have more people against us", "You have more max level chars" etc. BS.

It's technically "WorldvsWorldvsWorld". Similar to DAoC. I'm probably going to wait a while before picking it up. Not fond of GW1, and the streams/vids I've seen of GW2 are... well...

I'm a PvP guy... I saw a fight last 5 minutes before people just ran away from each other... lol

PVP guy here too but I don't want 5 minute 1 on 1 fights. That's ludacris (in my Mike Tyson voice)

But 3 realms could be cool..

Now mind you, I've played a game before where it took 8 hours for a fight to finish, but that was twitch-based pvp. And as far as I know, this doesn't have a lot of skill shots. But oh well, I'll wait for about a month or two.

League of Legends is keeping me busy.

GW1 was awful. Hated it.

I'm hoping to get into the GW2 beta, but based on what I read on their site, looks like it should be better.
