There’s a big, big update coming for Guild Wars 2 players — and no, it’s not another Living World Saga thingy. This one is a balance patch, the Mother of All Balance Patches, with the goal of making PvP-centric gameplay “more active.”the lengthy list on the forums.
ArenaNet said that this will get the game on a new schedule: “This patch is unusual in that it’s more about establishing a new paradigm than it is a regular balance update, and the result is a giant set of changes. Moving forward with competitive balance, we want to make smaller adjustments more often. The specific cadence for balance will always depend on our overall release schedule, but ideally it will be closer to every 4-6 weeks.”
