On this game there is no rush to level as there is not much implication for PVP and PVE. You still interact with your friends regardless of their level and so on, you don’t have to compete against other players and you don’t have to worry too much about high level content that you cannot see until you level up.
So, a typical day in GW2 might start by you sometime during the day, taking a look at you GW2 smart phone app or webbrowser (either at work, at school, at public transit, at the park, at party, etc) and see what events are going on, see what friends are doing/ interact with them and decide if you want to log in or when to log in. You might simply decide not to log in but still you had you game experience.
Another time, you decide to log in, you probably know what you want to do since you already had a layout of whats happening with your phone app or web browser on computer.
Then, you start participating in those events that you were insterested in, regardless If your friends or guildmates are doing something else.
Some unknown players are there............ Well, no worries about ksing, pking, player levels, loot issues, player professions, how hard the event is (the events scale up or down). I don’t need to talk to stupid npc to pick up a quest. So, I start playing. Everybody is happy I’m there because the more players, the more epic the event is and more rewards (I might even get somebody saying: “Thx for joining in”). I might even make some new friends.
If I end up not liking the event, I might leave it but still get some rewards and move to something else or finish the event and continue the event chain. I might even go and do some minigames.
I could end my PVE day. Doing what I want, when I want, how I want to do it, with who I want, up to when I want, get exps and rewards and think that I had fun and accomplished my day.
I could anytime do some PVP without worrying about being low level and not properly geared.
Now this is the question:
This sounds too good to be true, this sounds like an MMO Utopia. I like Anet but man even you guys have to admit this is hard to accomplish. I hope they do accomplish it.
Don’t get me wrong. I want this game to be as it is described by developers but man, they are setting the standard very high here. It makes me wonder.
