TMORBG: Guild Wars 2 Redefines Open World PvP

TMORBG: Guild Wars 2 Redefines Open World PvP - MMORPG.com

We've added TemperHoof's "Temper's Massively Overblown Ranting Blog [about] Gaming" blog to our Highlighted Blog roll and today we're featuring Temper's latest entry: Guild Wars 2 Redefines Open World PvP.

As the title of the update would imply, TemperHoof argues that ArenaNet's implementation of open world PvP may very well redefine what it means to have open world PvP in an MMO:

Does Guild Wars 2 have Open World PVP or does it not? There still confusion on this subject and it feels like almost every day there is someone debating it. The answer to the question is not exactly YES and not exactly NO: I intend to argue that it’s something of both. This is because ArenaNet is not applying their game to the classic, chaotic ideals of Open World PVP as the genre has known it for so many years. Instead of adhering to the tried-and-true, they are rewriting the rules and redefining what it means for a game to have Open World PVP.
