ArenaNet's Jonathan Sharp has penned a new developer blog on the official Guild Wars 2 site that details some of the incoming changes to the PvP feature. He outlines both paid and free automated PvP tournaments, custom arenas, and why the team has chosen these features over other changes to PvP.
We hear a lot of the things you’ve asked for. And the truth is, a lot of the features you want will be added in the future. Just because we don’t do everything you want, exactly when you want it, does not mean we aren’t listening. There’s a ton of stuff we want tell you about – just not yet. The features we’re adding now will go a long way in helping the sPvP community grow, but there’s still more to do. Again, we don’t like talking about features until we’re ready to show them. We don’t like empty promises, and we know you don’t either. But, at the same time, we do want you to know that other features are coming! We’re trying to strike that balance in this blog post.
So why are we adding paid tournaments and custom arenas first? Why not other features first?
