I enjoyed that video. PvP looks fun. Nothing new or special, but fun looking nonetheless.

Garret! You need to press buttons, don't click on your abilities with your mouse :(

Sorry, this doesn't look that amazing. I'm not a fan of instanced battlegrounds.

"Instanced PvP" = Fair PvP. Thats why most people don't like it, they can't take being actually outplayed. :)

After seeing these video's I have only one question that will make or break my decision to buy it or not.

 

Can u turn off that bloody freemouse mode and use mouselook? Or are you forced to just using wasd and right click, (Etc, typical trash mmo camera controls)?

Instanced PvP is also neither massive nor persistent, which is what turns a lot of MMO fans off from instanced PvP.  At least there will be another PvP option for people who prefer un-instanced PvP, though.

Or "preview" for that matter. Now, either this guy has scammed mmorpg.com to get this job or mmorpg is simply incompetent in hiring good staff members - I don't know. But the fact that this guy made no effort in this video speaks for itself. Just go look at the youtube comments.

One thing that really bugs me, which is common among all warzones, is that the victor of the game is pretty much decided from the start. No underdog team making a come back and winning, no infrequent back and forth scores, and no feeling that you alone can impact the outcome very much (unless you are a healer).

Is it just me or does the fights seems really slow? The more I see footage from Guild Wars 2, the more I seem to get dissapointed. Hopefully the pve conent is fun.

I thought the previous comments were joking in regards to this writers pvp abilities.

They were not.

 

Again, can't we get 'writers/reviewers' who understand pvp mechanics and how they interact, instead of keyboard turners and ability clickers?

This is very embarassing. I couldnt watch it all.......

I don`t see anything special about that PvP. Only thing that I saw and dont like is movement animation of a toon, it walks and jumps like broken robot.

Also another pvp tip If you have a blind in your fight to survive bar, you can use it to make the enemies execute miss.

The most important pvp tip of them all though, never make eye contact with an enemy Necromancer, with any luck he won't notice you and you will live to fight a bit longer.

I can't stand listening to this guy. Has the voice of a man but the speaking style of a 10 year old. Not to mention every 15 secs he says something that's either completely untrue or out of context of  what is actually happening to him on screen.

I remember the first time i played pvp too.

Word of advice to MMORPG::: When the most anticipated game on this site in the 2-3 years i've visited here lets you spill the beans under their NDA... leave the "Competitive pvp" breakdown to someone above a .5 on a scale of 1-10 in skill to present it for you...

I don't know specific writers on this site, he might be the most amazing writer on your staff.. but he sucks at gaming.  I'll leave it at that, anyone who actually plays these games "competitively" in any sense of the word can see that.

 This video was terrible, it should actually be removed from the site.. its shining unwarranted negative publicity on a subject for no reason.

ALTHOUGH he did remind me to kill downed players around 9 times, thanks for that tidbit.. I'll actually have that guys voice in the back of my head everytime i finish a downed player my entire GW career.

I agree is Kw22.

If you put up a video titled "Competitive PVP", don't put up something made by a "clicker" and a "key turner" that is just painful.

Garrett Fuller, perhaps you would like to comment  about the video you posted?

 

I hate to see someone slammed, and boy, you are being crucified here, without defending himself...

 

How about it sir? Care to comment?

This guy keyboard-turns and mouse-clicks on abilities. How do people like that end in PvP...
