Summary: GW2 is the Candy Crush of MMOs; it's a no-skill game, though PvP can be challenging. I've played GW2 for almost two years. Although there isn't a sub fee and you get free content updates, there isn't very much content.
Summary: About what I expect from an MMORPG these days. My biggest problem with Guild Wars 2 is the same one that I have with most MMORPG's: I do not want to have to muscle my way through a crowd of people trying to accomplish the same goal that I have. It's like shopping on Black Friday.
Summary: Customer support @ NCsoft went round and round for several weeks on trying to get my account updated. Finally resolved that issue then they said my game code had been used already. Wanted me to purchase another code. well I suspect you know the answer to that.
Buyer Beware: Playing with friends may not be possible, support unwilling to assist.

Summary: After much encouragement from several friends met through other MMOs, I purchased GW2. After registering my account and downloading the client, I logged in and encountered a road block; Apparently my friends' accounts are on a server that is listed as "full".
Summary: Very underwhelming game. I was a fan of the original, and this no longer has the same team play feel as the original both in PVE and PVP. Your options are solo in dead areas, or try and keep up with graphics crippling 'zergs' of people in the few popular areas.
Summary: Guild Wars 2 starts out great. According to its pre-release 'manifesto,' it promises to be a 'different kind of MMO,' appealing to people who have hated the MMO genre in the past. That was my stand point - I never wanted to try another again. Their 'a new kind of mmo!' lured me in.
Summary: First of all I really wanted to like this game but this game is nothing but a fake online RPG that poses as a mediocre action hack n slash game. The PVE aspects involve you swarming any events or mobs with others without any feeling of worth or roles.
Do your research first before buying. Is this really the game you want?

Summary: When I decided to play this game, I was attracted to the fact that the main (and only) factor for me being effective was my skill as a player. I don't mind the minimal effort it takes to outfit myself in optimal gear.
