Well, this is my personal thoughts my impression and what i think about it.
My background: I came from GW1, played a lot of MOBA like LoL etc.
My biggest fun was GW1 GvG, or HoH. The real strategie to create builds and to execute these. The complete freedom to combine all skills and classes, even skills cross class (Warrior Monk in the beginning of GW..or the golden times of smiters)
And then i started GW2, i listened to no review cause as i actually loved GW1 i was sure, that they put all that made GW1 into GW2 and improve it.
Seriously, i was a little bit shocked as i set my foot in GW2.
I played up to level 30, and i must say, i cannot force my self to login again.
PVE: i never was a friend of PVE but in GW1 i did it to hunt my Elite Skills
Here: Buttom smashing, i even coded a small program that i can turn on to fire of all my skills as soon as these are ready. In events if u have to defend, i position my char, then turn my 1, 2 3 ..6 macro on and go for something to drink cause if i come back after 5 mins, i have gold on the event (ranger).
Well very soon i could not stant the PVE any more, cause it required at least till level 30 no skill at all except exhaustive buttom smashing with anyone using same skills and weapons.
Exception high, not met, dissapointed.
But i did think, well i am here for PvP anyway, so lets look at this:
Structured PvP matches: Hmm its not a buttom smash in the extend of PVE its a buttom smash of some skills, some u must take off, cause these u need to make the kill. U cannot have these in cooldown, so take these off of the auto.
It feels a bit like a shooter, i mean its okay, i compare it to the 4 on 4 in GW and for this..
Expectation medium, met, okay.
Now the real PvP:
Something you could compare to HoH or GvG:
But shock, wats left? WvW seriously, thats 100 % buttom smash its who has the bigger zerg and does the zerg follow. It has nothing to do for me with skill at all. If you played Lotro in the beginning its in a way smaller zone same feeling.
Expecataion extremly high, not met, very sad.
Overall: After 7 days of GW2 i decided that its not for me. Sad, i had such high expectations, but for me its not what i looked for. For someone else its probably the world, but for people who had played GvG and the Ladder in GW or the HoH and want something like this again...***CRY***
