Guild Wars Insider recently had a sit-down with three of the more PvP-savvy ArenaNet developers – PvP Systems Designers Matt Witter, Mike Ferguson and Jonathan Sharp. In the interview, available in audio as well as transcribed text, the three fellows really let their love for the Guild Wars 2 PvP shine through and they sound like they are having a lot of fun with it. The gentlemen also share some new details about the Guild Wars 2 PvP systems, like how a PvP lobby will offer a PvP-specific tutorial available for those players who want to jump right in.
It will also be a place too where new players can come in and pick up the tutorialÂ on just PvP. Because weâ€™re assuming that you can come and just make a PvP characterÂ if you want to. Maybe youâ€™ve never done any of the tutorials for any of the other PvEÂ content, and if thatâ€™s the case, we wanted you to be able to jump in and understand whatâ€™s going on before you get thrown into a PvP match. Weâ€™re going to have some tutorial stuff that you can do there to figure out whatâ€™s happening in the game. -Â Mike Ferguson
Other subjects include the possibility of anÂ observerÂ mode (planning one, but wont be in at release), how it felt like to be beat by fans in PvP (they deny it ever happening) and inspirations for making Guild Wars 2 an e-sport (everything from soccer to boxing).

ArenaNet’s Jonathan Sharp just confirmed at a Reddit IAmA session that Guild Wars 2 closed beta starts this Friday. Yes folks, that is the day after tomorrow!Â (Barring a giant storm brought on by climate change..)
The session included a wide range of other interesting and new information as well, which surely will be discussed atÂ length (community forum thread about this IAmA). Thankfully Reddit user Nucking Futs did the work of assembling all the questions and answers, 75 of them in total,Â for easy reading.Read more & comment >>
Another Profession Interview has emerged at Tapped-Repeatedly with Jon Peters and Jonathan Sharp!
