I couldn't disagree more. The only stuff WvW is getting are siege golem mastery and a new trap. How is that substantial or feels "focused" to you?
First of all, commander functionality is strongly desired by WvW-ers, it's a thing for us. Also optimization is a huge thing for the mode, making GPU handle some of the CPU's work will massively boost the frame rate for those with slower processors.
After all it's not a content update, so i am not expecting new maps and stuff.

I said  "not PVE focused" and I did not want imply it's focused at something else.

I was quite happy with the last feature patch, this one does not address all my issues with the game, but i am very happy for some of it's features. That does not make it bad at all.

Well, i am disappointed that there is no precursor crafting/GvG/Guild halls/ legendaries/more weapon types.

That being said, this may be a fantastic update! Class balance changes are awesome for WvW/sPVP players, WvW improvements with commander tags and new skills are good, but overall game optimization is a HUGE thing! Also making this megaserver improvements will finally make guild missions not being a drag to organize.

Not to mention, that there are more features coming with collecting and trading. If they improve trade post- that would be enough for me.

Sorry, but i do not agree with you. This is clearly not PVE focused patch, but is improving two other aspects of the game.

I can always use more backpack skins, I hope they look nice

To be honest, those changes sound unneeded. Getting more specific to your profession loot? Ugh, for lower levels - fine.
Backpacks - they are, for the most part, ugly.
The  "new leveling items" i don't quite get, but having an option to chose stat combos in some low level gear is not bad.

In Topic: I am terrible at WvW how do I get better?

First of all - find a group. I don't mean a party, but a guild or a commander having TS3 channel. If you play in a guild things will happen on their own. You will see what builds people are using, you will listen to the raid leader and will learn when and where to be.

I cannot tell you good builds for necro and warrior, but maybe run soldier gear for the warrior and berserker/valkirye/knight on the necro.

For duels i have no advice for you.
For zerg vs zerg/GvG stay away of the enemy commander - he/she is the rolling ball of blades that leave downed people after it.
Keep distance with necro, stay around your backline and throw down wells on people.
The warrior runs on the front line with the wrecking ball using shouts and hitting people in their faces.

WvW is more about discipline and order in a raid group than the individual player's skill. Unless you are playing solo ofc.

Bottom line: Find a guild that are playing actively WvW.
