The Guild Wars 2 PvP community seems to be growing faster than ever before and to prove that we have found some of the biggest gems for you guys to see!
Community Gem Number One!
WildeHilde from ArenaJunkies released an article featuring two members from the highly successful Team Paradigm. Team Paradigm has had a lot of success during the BWE’s and for one remains undefeated during BWE-2.
Not only is this interview of very high standard but throughout the whole interview the two players leaves you with small pieces of gold in shape of instructions, guides and tips how you will guaranteed become a better PvP player!
Below you can get a little excerpt of the interview and hopefully be teased enough to go and read the whole thing here.
Hellom my name is Kasper Andersen, aka Azshene; I play a guardian in Team Paradigm, and I’ve recently made a PvP movie featuring some of the structured PvP/tournament matches which I’ve recorded during BWE2. I primarily play 2 builds in the movie, my defensive node hold/control build which is used by the Charr, and my versatile build which is used by the human.
The node control build relies on knock backs and area denial effects to get enemies out of nodes long enough for help to arrive or to neutralize points in your favor. Its tankiness makes it ideal for holding out for long amounts of time against physical damage dealers, while still dealing fairly respectable damage, but it’s also quite vulnerable to condition-based damage.
The versatile build is more offensively oriented than the node control one, giving you much more damage, but at the cost of survivability and control. The build still retains some control in the form of blinds and immobilizes. It survives through having high toughness and low recharge on its heal skill, as well as healing from its low recharge meditation. The build is also capable of swapping between ranged and melee, basically it has a bit of everything, hence why I named it the “versatile” build.
Community Gem Number Two!
One of the things I look most forward to is watching tournaments with professional commentators and high quality PvP. Luckily I no longer have to wait!
GuildSource released a Structured Player Versus Player commentary video featuring two highly skilled teams battling it out in a match of Conquest. Not only does it include exceptional pvp footage but also high level commentary! Head over to their youtube channel to check out more videos of some of the most interesting GW2 PvP footage available!
Community Gem Number Three!
Last but not least Infamy Gaming released their first issue of “The Ascalonian Press” which is an online Guild Wars 2 Gaming Magazine. This very professional looking magazine covers everything from PvE to PvP and if doing a great effort in keeping the communities rolling!
Be sure to head over to their website here and give them a shout out for this great magazine and hopefully motivate them to continue making even more!
Below is a little excerpt from their magazine explaining what content they will be focusing on:
Not only will we cover casual play for PvE, sPvP, and WvW along with character builds and general tips for all aforementioned, but we will also cover any competitive side of sPvP as well including top teams/Guilds, tournaments, etc. This magazine will also highlight members of the community, both individuals, Guilds, and websites that look to get their name out there and help the community grow as a whole.
