WvW is pretty fun, though meaningless overall. Really are better options for pvp/rvr. It's the new thing, give it a shot and see what you enjoy,  others opinion really mean nothing.

As far as opinions are like arseholes....that is exactly what you do on these forums like rest of us.

The bottom line is that $60 is pretty reasonable for a game with no sub and good reviews. Try it out.

don't they still offer refunds? Guess if he didn't like it he could just request a refund

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

IMHO its worth the $60.

The PvP and PvE both make it worth the price of admission. PvP does have some issues at the moment but overall its a fun experience. Same with PvE.

For $60 its a bargain with no sub fee, even if all you did was PvP.

 

Just my opinion tho. =)

they'll probably stop offering refunds once they have a trial

Do you? Even if they can make more money by offering it? Isn't it better to grab some of those gamers on the fence and let them decide for themselves rather than lose all of them? There are very good reasons for companies to offer moneyback guarantees. Not to mention being a more credible and reputable company.

I feel that the state of the genre is such that a total and complete failure is needed so it can be reborn anew.
I'm actually hoping this new generation of 8 button MMOs will make that happen.

I hope they will do their trial smartly, so that we don't have armies of trial level capped characters invading WvW. I guess there will be a time limit too, like in GW1.

I'm a pvp'er from back in the Shadowbane days of open world loot drop pvp. I must say that I haven't been a fan of the pvp in this game so far. I though I would love WvW, but I don't. I really don't. It feels like TSW Zergs all over again. I have been having fun with the pve,  but in my opinion, I wouldn't buy it for PvP.

The pvp isn't actually that good (imo) so from a pvp perspective alone it probably isn't. But as a total package it is hard to say the game is not "worth it".

Probably the only way to be sure you will like the game or not is to buy it or try it at a friend.To me the game is not worth it for pvp alone (actually wvw and spvp are the areas of the game i spent the less time in) ,as a few people already said I found RvR in War more enjoyable,even in old Southshore vs Taren Mill(Wow) battles I had more fun but since the game is b2p,pve is decent and it has a few interesting classes like engineer ,the game was worth buying for me.

Gw2 is THE PvP mmo. To me, it's my favorite PvP game, as I stopped playing dota2 in favor of gw2

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.

 

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.

Sorry but just because theres only 1 zone where PvP is allowed doesnt make it any less world PvP then another game that allows world PvP across all zones.  Tis is a DAoC model and it works really well for casuals, hardcores and organized teams.  Sorry to burst your bubble but consentual pvP is what people are after, not mindless gankfest while questing which you seek.

Any fool can know. The point is to understand.

10/26/12 12:25:06 PM#55
I think if solely for PvP then maybe not yet. Anet are still working on fleshing out the pvp side of GW2. I'd wait for a little bit more content comes out. 

Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

Make that 4 zones, but otherwise you're spot on.

World PvP means non-instanced zones where you cannot get in without being open to attacks. The borderlands and eternal BGs are no different from tarren mill vs southshore. It's open world PvP, in one (out of four) area of the world.

It is absolutely worth every cent.

It is the single most competitive PvP MMORPG currently on the market, bar none. The balance between classes is superb, despite what you may have heard from tryhard flavor of the monthers, and almost every serious e-Sports team in this genre has embraced the game as there main source of competitive PvP.

Naysayers will claim otherwise, try to convince you that it's garbage, etc...

Do yourself a huge favor and ignore those individuals, or you will risk missing out on something truly special that this industry hasn't seen for nearly a decade.

As a fan of PvP, if you don't pick this up, you will be doing yourself a massive disservice.

When you have to wait in queue to enter that area is not really open world the same way wintergrasp is not really open world since they limited the numbers of players taking part in battles.Also can you travel to the the wvw area ?When you enter an area only by queueing for it from the game interface that don't sounds very open world to me.You could get to Southshore by running or flying and on way there you didn't had any loading screens and no limits on the number of players in that battles (beside the server problems,which newer games should have tried to solve instead of limiting pvp even more).

I beg to differ with the "its the single most competative pvp game on the market"

It's the best modern themepark for pvp

It's not the best full stop and certainly not the most competative. That would be eve.

WvWvW is not open world pvp in the tradtional sense, it is a timed, instanced/zoned pvp affair. Whether that is good or bad boils down to the individuals subjective opinion but let's not make it into something it isn't, as it really doesn't help anyones case.

 

It is the kind of pvp "some" people are after, perhaps even "most of the people" but not "all people".

 

There is plenty of "mindless ganking" going on in both WvWvW and in the hotplay sPvP matches.

 

Again I am not taking sides on this one, but let's admit it's pros and cons. It offer accessible, zoned pvp in the RvR style. It also offers accessible arena pvp. That's great. But it doesn't offer anything like open world pvp and at the same time it is far from a bastion of "non ganking".
