I've been away from GW2 for months now, I think I stopped playing a month and a half after release.  My friend picked GW2 up from Christmas and I was wondering how is the game now?  My main concerns are...

-Are dungeons still crazy and unorganized with random deaths?
-How's the server population, are there plenty of people for dungeons and events?
-Has there been any drastic changes to class or combat?
-Has the game overall improved?  Cheaper waypoints, shorter loading screens, fixed DE's etc
-Is the game pretty much the same as it was on release except with bug fixes

Thanks :3

No clue what you mean by this. Care to elaborate.

Less than release but that is to be expected. There are still quite a few players tho they tend to center around Lion's Arch (a lot of the mid level maps are near deserted). If you want to look for groups, use this site: GW2lfg

There has been some class balancing but no major changes to classes or combat.

Whether a game has improved depends on the person and what they personally like about the game, so I can't answer that for you. Waypoints are not cheaper, I haven't noticed a changed to loading screen time, and quite a bit of the buggy events have been fixed.

Aside from bug fixes and balancing, there is some new content (e.g. Fractal of the Mists dungeon). ANet has stated there will be an expansion worth of content coming in the next couple of months.

  • Dungeons have never been disorganised if you nknew what you're doing. They reward good players with death-ree fast runs, and punish "bad" players with deaths, wipes, slow runs.
  • Population has dropped, especially in the levelling zones.
  • Nope, no crazy balances, that's not Anet style.
  • It improved for me with the addition of paid tournaments and fractals, and I'm under the impression it runs slightly better than at release.
  • They fixed loads of bugs, but some seem harder to fix than others, so there still are some bugs.

That's ridiculous because you can play without chat or anything.
