Player versus Player

There are two main forms of PvP: a tournament based game with evenly organized teams, and pick-up play where individuals or groups can hot-join a map depending on a variety of settings. Players entering organized PvP get a fixed level and any items necessary to ensure an even footing.


World versus World

World versus World is a casual but competitive player versus player mode featuring large, continuous, objective-based battles between a few matched servers. Players of any level can come and go, using the skills and equipment that they currently have. The winning worlds gain particular benefits, such as better prices at merchants.

  5. I'm still waiting for someone to dress up in a costume, get an axe, sword or bow and arrow and start a killing spree, all the while shouting some "spells". Would take the "killer game" focus off the first person shooter games for a while ...

  16. I've never tried GW2, mainly because I find MMORPGs repetitive and not fun.

    Is this the same case for GW2? Or will I enjoy a difference experience?

  17. As someone who used to play Final Fantasy XI quite intesively, and quit due to time restraints, is GW2 a bit more... relaxed?

  18. @CanuckNation
    Gw2 is anything but repetitive. The developers got rid of the whole "quest" system, so instead of "go kill 10 ogres in a field". You walk around and encounter "events" and can basically just get right into action.

    @TreeBranchez
    Well, if you refer to a post on leveling on my blog you'll find out that you don't to "grind" to level in this game. So I think you can play at a more relaxed pace. Plus, Gw2 has a buy-to-play business model, so there is no feeling of "need to play" because you want to get a sub fees worth.

    Hope that answers your question. :)

  22. PvP is how you separate the good MMO's from the bad. It's all depending on the size of the PvPness.
