However, things did not materialized as I expected them. For instance, I remember we were supposed somehow to have some sort of access to the game trough mobile devices like phone and tablets. It seems that never materialized.
That was the Extended Experience Mobile App. As I recall, you couldn't actually play through it, but you could see what your friends/guildies were doing (and perhaps talk to them), look over the trading post and possibly do some trades through it, and a few other things.

In theory, that is. As you observe, theory never became practice...

They do. It's not the first time we've seen a shot from an angle that players can't get.

In Topic: TANKS! Arrrgh...

Yeah, this really isn't a game designed for tanking.

If you must do it, guardian probably is the best bet (warrior has more straight-out tankiness, but in my opinion at least, guardians have more ability to stay alive - although that may be just because I'm better at guardian). Engineers, elementalists, and necromancers can also prove pretty tough, or so I've heard - I don't know for sure if those builds still work the way they used to, though.

But when I say 'work', what those builds are usually used for is surviving in PvP - tanking a la typical MMOs really isn't a thing in GW2 PvE. It was barely a thing in GW1 PvE once they fixed the gear exploit.

The Shiverpeaks shot looks to be of the Durmand Priory, so it may just be a visit to there rather than expanding the map in a direction relevant to the Shiverpeaks.

What I miss seeing is things like "show us your collections", "show us your titles", "funniest thing someone said in game", "how's the game treating you today?". You know, all those fun little threads people used to post regularly in. There's nothing to talk about when there's nothing that's fun, exciting, mystical, etc. I don't know, I just don't think GW2 is a lot to talk about.
There are similar threads on the official forums (I haven't been getting involved on reddit) - however, the official forums are also a lot quieter than they were a year or so ago. There's just... not as much to discuss, really.
