Don't listen to the detractors.

WvWvW is the best PvP in a theme park MMORPG since a long time, it beats the crap out of supposed PvP MMOs like WAR, even better than DAoC since there's no rank grind which make veterans overpowered compared to newbies. The only ones who will miss the RR are the bad players who can't do PvP without having some sort of grind carrot giving them an advantage over other players, any PvPers relying on his player skills and not on gear or overpowered rank abilities will enjoy GW2.

Don't listen to the fanboys.

Yes PVP is good in GW2 for 60 bucks but not better than DAOC.

No, definetely not. Im a big MMO PvP fan and I was severly dissapointed with GW 2's PvP. The WvW is fun at first but after doing it for many hours it is just a game of cat and mouse where the cat is the bigger zerg and the mouse is the smaller one and both of them flip control points back and forth and the smaller zerg avoids the bigger one, until they eventually duke it out.

However it is completely meaningless as the bonuses for holding control points are small and does not mean much of anything in the rest of the world, which is completely separated from the WvW zone.

So if you are looking for a PvP MMO then GW 2 is definetely not it, the PvE is much more fleshed out though so if you like ThemePark PvE then I think it is worth the box price. But PvP? No, definetely not.

WvW in an organized guild setting is easily the best PvP experience Ive had since DAoC, suprisingly its with that same guild.

 

I hear people talk all the time on these forums (well the newer generation of MMO players at least) that say Vanilla WoW had the best PvP, from Southshore to Tarren MIlls tug of wars to 24+ hour AV's.

 

Well you know what, WvW in GW2 is EXACTLY like that, world PvP at its finest.

 

GW2 WvW is 10X the PvP that Planetside 2 wants to be, because GW2 is an actual MMO and not a FPS in an MMO clothes.  If I wanted to play a FPS, if play CoD or BF, not some pretender from a horrible company.

I am sorry but the underlines is BS. GW 2 has NO world PvP, there is one zone, mirrored for the three sides and one center zone and that's it. There is NO PvP in the rest of the world, that is pure PvE.

If you compare land-mass you got maybe 90% which is pure PvE and 10% which is PvP.

WvW doesn't hold a candle to DAOC's RvR and I had more fun in WAR's, GA's, and SWTOR's instanced PvP than in GW 2's. So lol no.

There's some lovely filth down here.

10/26/12 5:25:14 AM#30

No. 

 

WvWvW isn't PvP, it's more of a strategic placement of forces game.  Yeah, you shoot things at the other side, but that's all you do.  Try going into melee when everyone else is ranging each other down.  There's no real player vs player aspect - it's group vs group.  On that off chance you do run into a solo player, help arrives in seconds, and that 1v1 you were hoping for turns into a 1vzerg.

 

sPvP - A little more fun with more actual player vs. player fighting, but most of the points you need to rank up come from capturing control points instead of defeating other players. 

 

Obviously just my opinion, but that's what this thread is about, eh?  To the OP - if you think this sounds appealing, then right on - jump in and start playing.

At the moment probably not, however I am pretty sure that eventualy Anet will make GW2 pvp pretty good, or even great. I say this because I've been playing GW1 for years and I know that Anet does work on their game alot, and i know they have some big things planed for GW2 pvp too. Hope they hold their word... What i would suggest to you is keeping on track with their PvP updates that will be coming pretty soon now, and decide for yourself if the direction they went is ok with you...

+1

Seems to me that some fans tend to make it up as they go along, yesterday it was GW2 has the second largest player base.

To the OP.

GW2 does not have world PvP it has sectioned off PvP that happens in one tiny zone compared to the rest of the world. You will never be out in the open world and encounter an enemy player or run the risk of being attacked while questing, it's carebear to the highest degree.

The Myst is a zone that is apart from the main world it's not an instance as such but it's not open world PvP that's for sure.

And no it does not beat WAR RvR.

Planetside plays nothing like cod.

It plays like a cross between daoc and unreal tournament.

The entire game Is like daoc frontiers but with fps combat and vehicles but minus the pve.

Gw2 is a good attempt, but I'm not feeling the realm pride I felt in daoc or planetside.

The server shuffling and not seeing the names of the competition make it more short term.

You need good enemies as well as good friends to make pvp long term, I can't see myself playing WvW for 4 years like I did daoc, because it lacks rivalry, or the year or so I played planeyside. I still think of myself as hib & smurf now, the otherday got my gw2 server mixed up, thought I was on gandara but I'm on gunners hold.

This is one of those statements I just don't know what to say to. Why stop there? If you are going to make stuff up, let's say  Top government officials around the world are having so much fun playing GW2, they have abandonded all their political agendas. As a result, all nations wars will now be battled out in W v W v W causing a massive breakout of World Peace. GW2 has ended all wars.

Recently started playing SWTOR. I am posting updates to my experience in this thread:

Exactly. That is why i just laughed and ignored it. Making stuff up is nothing new though. Couple of weeks back he posted a topic regarding new server being added to GW2 and we all know that due to W v W v W set up. Anet will have to add two more servers to balance things out. 

No one could find that imaginary server though. Just like no one will be able to find this imaginary world PVP.

Imo yes. WvW is amazingly fun, structured PvP is very good. the classes are designed with pvp in mind. Imo no mmo comes close. just like no mmo came close to GW1's guild vs guild years ago. And it seems like ANet is determined to add more options for people who like pvp.

To the OP, I suggest trying it to see for yourself. You will get opinions all over the place because opinions are like arseholes, everyone has one and they adamantly express them here.
