my guess would be engineer for least played.. seems many don't have the patience to learn to play them.. they also seem lowest on every large class poll I have seen

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Wouldn't know, don't follow what is what concerning most or least popular classes in any MMO.  But my top 5 classes I plan to play, using names from my 5 GW characters are gonna be Warrior, Mesmer, Engineer, Guardian and Ranger.

Unless signifigant changes are made:

 

Elementalist for most played, hands down.

 

Probably Engi for least. If I rwere to arrange them...

 

Elementalist>Ranger>Warrior>Mesmer>Guardian>Thief>Necro>Engi

Most - Elementalist because people are most familar with it from the original.

Least - Thief and  Warrior because they will get tired of getting pummeled in large events because meele doesn't stand a chance at close rage in large events.

I woud say the same. Thought I would love the engineer but without weapon swapping they just feel limited compared to the other classes and the turrets don't make up for it in my humble....

As someone whose closest thing to a main so far is a melee mesmer...you only get pummeled if you're doing it wrong. You can't play melee like you do in WoW. More like God of War or even Arkham Asylum, where you're constantly moving and setting your enemies up how you need them to die.

 

I will however agree that all melee builds will suffer a bit in popularity, at least until more people understand that fact.

You are very close minded with that statement. I know many people, including myself, that plan on playing rifle/longbow warrior or shortbow/pistol thief and never even touch melee weapons. Guardian would be in the worst case scenario, since they are even more limited than a warrior/thief

Option#1 (relation to sPvP):

 

Most Played:  Thief  (sneak around maps killing people)

 

Least Played: Guardian (after the nerf that had happened)

 

 

Option#2 (relation to Wx3):

 

Most Played:  Elementalist  (AOE and great damage from below and above walls)

 

Least Played: Ranger (relies heavily on pets that cannot get past walls and dies too early during mass fights)

 

 

Option#3 (relation to PvE):

 

Most Played: Guardian  (strong based, played above a warrior because of utilities and such)

 

Least Played: Warrior  (too generic, tank types are picked least and this one is behind Guardian)

yea great thing about melee in this game is none are 100% melee unless you want them to be

It was, and don't get me wrong, I LOVED my Necro. But the pets in GW2 just don't feel as strong or as fun, and people are looking at Necro and Ele side-by-side and going "Why aren't I picking the class that spams meteors all day, again?"

yea see your point pets so far have felt somewhat lackluster in comparison to gw1, hopefully they see this and fix it some by launch

Its the fact that it will take players quite awhile to get used to the dodge and roll mechanic. You can't just simply ask players to switch the way they have been playing Guild Wars for the past 5+ years and expect them to learn a new combat system so quickly. Not to mention when large events scale upward meele becomes super squishy. Its a fact, you get hit hard and it only takes a few more hits before you are looking for someone to revive you on a consistent basis. Some will catch on and I bet most will not.

Elementalist > Warrior (gaining popularity due to being a pubstomp profession) > Thief (losing a lot of popularity due to being underpowered at the moment) > Ranger > Guardian > Necromancer > Mesmer (a lot of people find them underwhelming at the moment, though I think they are fine) > Engineer

Engineer is a very obvious contender for least played.  I guess people just don't like that profession's style.

Raptr link because it's the cool new trend:

I have only played Guardian, Theif, Necro and Engineer so far. My least favorite is the Engineer (as it feels odd to play it most of the time). So much focus on utility skills and not many weapon choices.

The whole melee vs. ranged argument seems a little silly though ... all classes can perform ranged combat. And the Guardian is supposedly getting changes to give them a long range option with it's scepter or staff most likely.

Also, melee damage is considerably higher than ranged from what I have played. There are probably a lot of changes coming down the pipe, but I definitely don't feel melee is out of the fight yet (except in huge zerg vs. zerg PvP).

I would probably guess Engineer or Mesmer will be the least played. I want to try Mesmer next BWE and see how it feels, but it seems most feel it is underwhelming at the moment.

My first 5 characters are going to be Guardian, Theif, Warrior, Ranger and Elementalist ... might change depending on how I feel about them between now and launch.
