So I spent a ton of time in pvp with almost all of the professions and as such have been releasing videos of the pvp with each profession. I have currently released a first impression style necro pvp video, a mesmer video, and most recently a warrior video. I will be releasing many more in the coming days.

Latest Video:

Beta Gems - Gwen Melonni and Jora!

Warrior PvP - a little underwhelming?

Dont really think anyone can talk about how strong classes are yet, we have played the game for 3 days and there is tons of traits/runes to switch that makes you alot stronger with certain weapon specs. With the standard traits i critted for about 5K with the Axe burst skill, and when I changed traits and runes I managed to crit for EXACTLY 10K on the medium armor dummy in the PvP lobby. 

As for what those runes/traits did with my survivability etc, I dont really know because it was just overwhelming how much choices we had in terms of customization. 

Over to on topic, how strong certain classes are cannot really be determined before you actually MASTER your class. Which first comes after hundreds of hours of gameplay in games like these. Offcourse there are first impressions of how strong a certain class is, but how do you know you play it right in each situation you get into? Its like if a ele is spamming fireball at you and he just keeps kiting and you cannot get to him, that means you did something wrong> Not that fireball is stronger than your X dmg skill. It all comes down to player skill and how you use your skills. Im no expert at this game by far, but there is no real base on what classes are OP or UP yet. Im sure some are stronger than others at the moment, but for this beta Im pretty sure the better player would win any 1v1 fights. 

This just brings me to the statement of some Anet guy saying that a thief in WvW(Early Beta for VIPs) was killing groups of 6-8 people, SOLO. After playing the game, I have no idea how he actually did that but they must have been really, really bad.

Haven't watched the other vids but, I've got to say Warriors are beast. In fact every class can be beast, you just have to play them right.

This is not a game.

From what I have seen if you want to play with 2 h swords in 1 vr combat you should consider ranger. 2h sword in case of the warrior class is more AOE oriented.

these are all basically my initial impressions from my experiences in the beta I'm sure they will change come the next beta and will most likely change in any subsequent betas and upon release. The videos are supposed to be more entertainment than informative.

Yep i had very hard time to pvp efficiently in the competitive setting, because both the game and the class mechanism are unknown, especially in competitive map where you have it all handed, it was just overwhelming imo,even with the default setting. It was a lot easier in WvW imo, because you used the skills you learned in pve and had time experimenting with them. But i'm probably a slow learner anyway. I did play quiet a few competitive match, but i just felt like swinging pretty much in the dark all the time. The match was really good to have though, and i'll definitely spend a lot of time once i know my class a lot better.

Also, yes warrior was probably the most let down from the 3 class i played (tried thief, warrior, ele), but it also seamed to be the most complex to master in pvp because of all the choices. So i kept a very positive attitude over this class.

as I said in the video its not that I didn't like it its just that compared to my experience with the other professions the warrior seemed the most laking.

The game is very similar to GW1 so not much of the mechanics in this game are "unknown" really.

 

As you play the game more, you'll become better as the Warrior. Considering most Americans/Westerners are stupid and care only about DPS, being able to CC for 18-22 seconds straight with absolutely no breaks in the lock can mean death for any single person. Splitting that all up means you've got a Linebacker able to counter an entire team at least twice. Once people learn how to use their brain, Linebackers and pushers won't be as dominant. However that will take the newer people in the GW community about a year to figure out if not longer.

 

Most competitive teams will run the standard:

 

Linebacker War/Ranger

CC Support w/ Permasnare

 

 

Then they will either run spike or pressure. Pressure is slightly harder to do in this game but we've come up with a few that worked out really well.

 

As for the small 5 mans it looks like a 1|3|1 or 2|2|1 split seems to be the best so far. Two with great sustain and the rest with the preferrence of spike/pressure.

 

Good luck everyone.

apparently I made the mistake of using the wrong weapon sets when I played the warrior but that being a possibility kind of supports my claim in and of itself. As apparently there were two or so weapon sets ont he warrior that made them amazing if not "op". However with a profession that can use nearly every weapon in the game doesn't that in and of itself say there is something wrong when only two weapon sets are viable?

All weapons are viable, it's all about how you spec for it. If you go to the guru forums and to the Professions forums (Vigil Academy), check the build threads. There are several different builds and many are quite viable. It's up to you to figure out what you want to do. Don't listen to people saying something is OP until you've actually learnt the game and figured out if it's OP yourself.

This is not a game.
