GW2 doesn't really seem to be an MMO in a usual sense. Got bored with the frist game pretty quickly, wil likely get bored with the second game just as fast.

I don't know what to say, other than I find GW2's pvp .... bad, while SWTOR's simply rocks. The ice skating sensation is especially off-putting.

Actually you do gain experience during PvP and pick up tokens (in World v World) that can be exchanged for weapons or blueprints for defence structures.

The one thing that seperates SWTOR pvp from GW2 pvp is the word FUN. Because of Biowares outdated cloning facilities on the planet Blizzard, PvP is such a grind fest and thats the reason why its littered with quitters. GW2 has put the fun back in PvP - no coms to collect, no stupid gear grind - FUN. It reminds me of Star Wars Galaxies PvP at launch.

So... What you are saying is... if you replace the commendations with tokens... . the gear grind is gone! Magic. I wonder how BW could not figure this out... huh.. go figure...

I look forward to GW2 coming out. It will purge the PvP queue of several FOTM gamers, who inevitably move on to the "next big thing" coming out.

Buh-bye.

No. GW 2 pvp requires zero gear grind. The tokens can be exchanged for blue prints for Arrow carts, and other defences. They also can be purchased for small amounts of cash instead.

Believe it or not, there was a time that people would pvp just for the FUN of it, without a requirement to be given something in return.
