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: Let me first say that Guild Wars 1 was one of my favorite games of all times. Guild Wars 2 is a completely different game all together, I wish it would have been a little more similar to the first but I realize it had to adapt to the style of Role Playing games that are popular today.
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: Before I start, I have to say that I loved Guild Wars 1 and played it for many years. Even past it's primetime, it still had a lot of players on and wasn't dead. I most liked playing Mesmer and Necromancer most. I also loved doing dungeons and getting creative with builds and team composition.
