I’ve been spending my gaming time lately PvPing in Guild Wars 2 in an attempt to reinkindle my old obsession with World of Warcraft battleground-style gameplay. It’s working: I really love the GW2 maps, and it thrills me that it’s one more fun facet of a game I already enjoy more than most titles still alive today.
(Of course, there’s no more disgruntled a group in GW2 than PvPers, and I’m sure I’ll get to that same point in a few months. But for now, while everything is still new to me, I’m actually *gasp* having a good time.)
I started out on my original main character, my Warrior, but found it too chaotic; I prefer more strategic PvP. Last night I switched over to my Engineer and had a much better time playing defensively with my wall o’ turrets. It’s not really anything like my sniper-esque Hunter from my old WoW days, but it’s working for me. Now if only I could port over my old Lieutenant Commander title!
What’s your favorite MMO character for PvP?
