Stopped playing about 2 weeks after release because the game was unplayable in wvwvw and large pve events - did the situation improve since then?

Short answer? No.  Long answer?  I haven't got to test it out yet cos I just recovered from the longest fever (4 days) I've ever had in my life... When I was feeling "waaayy better", I was at 38.4 C, so I can't even imagine what it was like when I was feeling dead and wanting to die...

No and don't hold your breath for a performance patch.

For me it never really was unplayable, except during the first phase of the Lost Shores event. WvW might lag a bit, but it was never unplayable.

They did some small performance patches since launch, which made it better.

LA is still a pain, even though I have a very high-end PC.
WvW is a thing apart because it isn't really a performance issue but more a connection issue (culling) where they limit the amount of date that can be transferred per second, if I'm correct.

Nope, performance is still lower than what I expect.

Any huge events where many players are or WvW remain at horribly low FPS for me, i'm running 12gb RAM a HD 7850 2gb and a Phenom 2 X6 3.6ghz. Should be overkill :(

Running around in pve is fine but when you get into areas with a large cluster of players it gets unplayable. Ask anyone who does large events or some big WvW Zergs.

Short answer: No
Long answer: Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

If you want to check if your computer will run GW2, check here.

If you find out you can't and need to think about upgrading or building another, check here.

Define good?  Anything below 45fps isn't good to me.

I don't remember what I had at launch, but anywhere outside of lions arch, I'm typically 60 to 110

I have an ivybridge i5 at 4ghz with 16 gigs of ram, and a geforce 660 that runs at 1176mhz... so...

its not as bad as it was at launch but its still horrible. even on high end computers.

op, if youre using nvidia the latest beta driver actually helped a decent amount with gw2. wvw is still a slideshow for me but not as bad as it was before that driver update.

hopefully further driver updates can help improve the games performance...cause i have doubts that anet will ever do anything about it themselves.

Different drivers? Perhaps my higher cpu value helps more? Remember, CPU boosts to gaming performance are based on what's left over after doing all the non graphical calculations.

The only problems I've really encountered lately is:

1) Lag in highly populated area's
2) WvW culling (not a problem per say)
