Alongside a slew of new PvE and WvW information you'll see coming out in the April 30th patch, we have even more to talk about. That's right, folks; two of the biggest, long-awaited structured PvP (sPvP) features will be introduced at the end of this month: custom arenas and spectator mode.

Its shit, thats what it is.. wtf they doing to the pvp? I dont give a !@#$ about custom arenas.. they need to make the tournaments better and give spvp a purpose to play as a team, and not 16 mindless chickens running around for glory.

Spectator Mode is something on the side, not a main thing to announce in a patch but as an added feature.

I'd say Custom Arenas/Spectator were two of the most important things personally, it's just how slow they are at implementing the (unfinished) features that ticks me off. Although after saying that and quickly flicking through the forums I can see a few of the old top ranking QP players are returning for this patch which is always good! With next months bug fixing to boot (as stated in SotG) the game should slowly start to see a rise in players which could possibly allow them to split solo/team queue. It will be interesting to see how Custom Arenas/Spectator have changed the game 30-60 days from now.

 

TL;DR: The game is heading in the right direction even if it is at a snails pace.

This month we'll be joined again by ArenaNet Developers Karl McLain and Jonathan "Chaplan" Sharp. We'll have some shownotes available for you guys sometime prior to the show, but expect discussion regarding upcoming changes in the April patch.

Over in the land of the official forums, Jonathan Sharp has pointed out that the planned skill splits between PvP and PvE will also stretch into World Vs World. He states they plan to start the splits in the upcoming patch, which more than likely is the April 30th update announced yesterday (though the date specifically has not been confirmed).

Achievment points is like how much RL do you have? For WvW Millenium is still the way to go ,and for sPvP it also doesnt show who the most skilled player is.

Over 8 months and they can't even make a simple system for leaderboards.

Rerroll recently started an interesting survey on the official forums trying to gather player opinions on a wide array of hot topics. Some of these are already showing some interesting trends, would you agree warrior is the weakest profession in the game? Or perhaps that Elementalist is the strongest profession?

before i even read what you wrote i already did the answeres and yes for me warrior is the weakest class in form of survival not damage.Elementalist is the strongest proffesion atm cause if he wants he will never die in 1 vs 1 he will just RTL or Mist Form and laugh at you!

@ Togur Mesmer is one of the stronget you are right and that blured frenzy is lasting almost 4 secs not 2 as it is in the description but no mesmer say it is bugged...But 1 vs 1 mesmer vs ele ele is 75% more chances to win the point.Engineer haves a lot builds to survive and for damage but warrior have only damage specs not even one to survive that's why i said he is the weakest!
