    ok, i just watched the match up for guild wars 2 pvp and even while i really don't like pvp, it kinda makes me feel like i like to try pvp.
    you have complete control over your skills and even while some things are really powerful, within teamwork it just doesn't matter how powerful a skill is.

    i also saw that there is no limit on skills other then recharge times, this completely changes the scope on how ppl play the game.
    it adds action without annoying limits, it removes the need of energy management and it just makes the skill of the player worth more.

    i love it, really the #1 game i will take a week off for when it's released.

    I agree with you there. Btw, did anyone catch the cleverly worded question by djwheat and the response?

    Question: So what class would you recommend for someone who in GW1 liked the Mesmer?

    <awkward silence>
    <leave camera view>
    <let me scramble for an answer, waste some time by walking to another Anet guy>

    Other guy off the screen: Thief.

    I think it's gonna be even better when people get used to the secondary mechanics. i understand that people fall back on what they're familiar with, that's why only ANet really used the trebs. Once the PvPers are used to the secondary mechanics of these maps, it's really gonna open up another level of strategy.

    For those of you who missed the earlier live stream PvP, I found matches through youtube searches(see above).

    I'm loving the knockback mechanic. There was a great part when a Warrior steps up to a caster operating the Terb, and just hammers him entirely off the platform! Classic.

    Another one when someone got knocked out of the clocktower window, that's one way to get rid of those trying to cap points!

    I am starting to question the wisdom of finishing people off when they aren't in strategic positions, seems they may be out of the game longer if you leave them. What's the point bonus for finishing people off?
