So is there going to be some improvement in PvE regarding more solid tanking/healing/dps system or are the Fractals of Jumping and BYOBerserker gear the pinnacle of their achievement?

Didn't had time to check beyond the marketing/PR bullshit, but from what I can remember a lot of the original developers left Arenanet last year, so this can only mean: better direction or lack of it.

But you can always be the lucky guy who gets a free beta invite and find out for yourself, via this:

Starting tomorrow, April 28, heroes adventuring in the Maguuma Wastes have a chance to find a mysterious portal to the heart of the Maguuma Jungle. Looting one of these special trophy items grants you access to the next Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns™ PvE closed beta event!

Nevermind, installed GW2 yesterday, crashed like 7 times in 30 minutes for no reason, then in Borderlands (had a queue for 10 minutes) and got kicked out.

"Are you sure you want to uninstall Guild Wars 2?"

Hell yes.

I remember that before I took a break from the game the entire GW2 QA team was outsourced, so that could explain the new bugs & crashes (something that we were not familiar with @ GW2 vanilla) .

Yeah, this is unacceptable. I was standing in BC bank, sorting all the bullshit chests and gifts I got. Crash.

Immediately logged in, then in about five minutes, another crash.

Then again.

And again.

And again.

Then I queued up for BL, got there, got where the action was and then... Crash.

Logged back dead in BC.

WHAT THE ****.
