In light of all the false information that many people seem to have about guild wars 2, i decided it was time to bring to attention some known facts about gw2. I am simply posting the official FAQ according to www.guildwars2.com. Additional information about the game can also be read about in their news section which lists links to interviews with the developers so feel free to check it out directly from the source. It seems people are rather lazy or don't realize that gw2 has a faq so i wanted to post them where they would easily be seen by other people who are looking for the information or are just curious.
Remember that extra information that delves into more specific parts of the game can be found in the interviews listed on the news section of the official website.

Also, to allow players the freedom to play together even if their friends are at a much higher (or lower) level, we are planning to implement a strong sidekick system, similar to that used in City of Heroes™.
We're applying this same philosophy to competitive play. Players will be able to engage in organized, balanced PvP (similar to GvG in the original Guild Wars) without first leveling up characters, finding equipment, and unlocking skills. While inside the organized PvP area, all characters will be the same power level and will have access to the same equipment.

Sounds nice that it features a way to level as a group, with difficulty scaling on the number of players in your group. That way soloers and group players will get what they want :)
