“Automated tournaments are the new peak of player vs. player competition in Guild Wars 2,” said ArenaNet. “You’ll be able to compete in three different daily single-elimination tournaments as part of a five-person team to earn gold and qualifying points — the latter of which can land you a spot in the monthly tournament.”
Prizes for these tournaments include mystic coins, llama minis, and the Glorious Hero’s armor set.
Between bouts, players can hang out in the redesigned PvP lobby. The studio was quick to stress that the new lobby will have all of the same vendors as the old one but with an updated look and a “few surprises.” There will even be a special lounge for the best-of-the-best in the PvP community.
