How on earth did they manage to write this bad of a PVP find system?
Then, you have to find the guy to talk to that pulls up the PVP match interface. This is highly unnecessary.
Then, you are presented with a giant fuckoff list of servers, most of them with only 1 or 2 people. The vast majority of PVP games I've played so far have just been 3v2, 2v1, etc. matchups, and the lower side invariably loses terribly. Far too much effort to find a halfway decent matchup in a game buit around balanced, skill-based PVP.
Also was that you as Ruriruri I saw diving around in the big lake in Kessex?
I'm up to level 29 on my warrior now, wandering around the new Gendarran area trying to get to 30 so I can buy a bunch of new gear and unlock me some elites.
I'm not sure I'm going to be interested enough in GW2 enough to be :srs: about tournaments and such. The quality of gameplay would def. improve in such an environment, no doubt about that. That doesn't excuse how bad their casual/hot-join PVP system is atm though. BWE1 was actually working better, so its very weird that they've slid backwards like this. They've stated they want some form of ELO system based on glory, but what they have today is a far cry from a working casual bracket. At the very, very least, their servers need to be able to create balanced teams (same #v#), which they can't do at all right now.
Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying the PVE content, and I like a lot of what the game has to offer and the things its doing differently. The overall FPS and latency (small hiccup earlier asside) is also much improved over BWE1. Whatever their PVP team is doing, well, they have some more work cut out from them.
awesome game is awesome
finished the norn 1-15 map and got some potions that turn me into a giant pink flamingo
15-25 norn area is fun too
I am only playing random PvP with classes to find out what's fun, trying to leave most of the PvE now because the Charr 1-10 area was so good that I just want to experience it all on launch ;3
the PvE in GW 2 is way too fun, normally I despise it
@ Jolin : I think you have to advertise your guild in-game for it to be searchable, otherwise it's an invite-only sort of thing. I'll play around with it a bit.
EDIT: Nah, I think if you're not in a guild you just hit the G button to bring up the pane, and you can search from there?

filingo, haha yeah seriously - I'm gonna have so much fun exploring and just playing once it goes live
prolly gonna be terrible in PvP because I'll PvE so much even though I've done mostly PvP in all MMO's I've played previously
they did something right there, at least for me
the pvp is pretty balanced too. at first i was pissed at the ranged classes, but i found out that the one space mage class does more damage the farther they are away from you, so if you close in on them, they are FUCKED. not sure how it works with rangers but they only seem to dominate when you are sieging.
the sieging in this game is so cool. last night i was in a very prolonged siege, as defenders. dumping oil on motherfuckers is so much fun. it's so intense when they get up a fire battering ram.
also the escort supply events are cool too. so much random shit can happen.
i think the world v world stuff was fun, not sure about the structured stuff yet
we've been mainly doing pve stuff this time round, the norn zones are really good :3
finding it pretty hard to solo shit as my elementalist tho, gonna try some other classes
