Well, even though it's new content it's not really what was asked about. Starfighter is basically a new PvP Arena, isn't it?
What was asked for was events that make the whole game world come alive. There's a difference.
No, not really.
It's PVP, alright. It's not an Arena, though.
And I don't disagree with adding events, it just seems a bit of a stretch to call a game that was never "something new every 2 hours" abandoned - it implies that things that used to happen no longer do when in fact this game, simply, is not GW2.
