Hi there,

I would like to know when

- there will be a ladder or different kind of ranking system
- when it will be possible to organize custom tournaments. I have prepared everything to organize tournaments in our community and i was really disapointed that its not in game yet ! So many work to get comentators / streamers / partners for tournaments.
- when there will be spectator mode?

these 3 things are important. People are starting to be bored after 14 days because there is no competition at all. Random tournaments even you fight organized groups doesnt make GW2 competitive game. Offten you get easy wins and only rarely a good fights.

So please tell me. When we can expect to have competition in sPvP?? And please dont tell “when its ready” because that was supposed to be 28.8.2012

There is a lot of people out there looking for challenge which we are not getting in “random” tournaments.

sorry but its true. ladder system is needed so ve can progress and be challenged at our rank.
and it is needed fast. Now the major issues with connections / rewards / auction house seems to be sorted. Its time to move for next step.

Yes we need this, but we don’t need a rushed version of it tho – A broken rating system can have worse consequences than no rating system tbh.

Why slay dragons, when you can kill players?

Thats for sure. But.. at this point game is relased and therefore “is ready” and we do not have some of promisses here. Starting with sPvP competitive scene and ending with smartphone applications and webportal auction hause.

I really agree, this needs to be done. I’m currently in a organized team and we face nearly no challenge at all. Even if you could only do one thing at a time, start with private tournaments and then move on to ELO/Rating system as a TEAM not a SOLO rating that would ruin the game.

Get Stopmed I know you guys, have meet you 2 days in row always very close results and nice fights. In current state one of only matches worth to mention.

Lets hope we get at least some estimation dates when the system will be implemented. Lot of good teams is now disapointed as they are not getting challege of their level of play.

I support this

at least those Custom tournaments so the actual competitive scene may start

I bought this game for competitive PvP … we were promised that GW2 is aiming to be an E-Sport … yet there is no competitive pvp at all

sPvP is joke
tPvP is nice start but as was sad before, there is rarely any competition

I understand that account security was major issue so was Auction House (your income) but those things are fixed so imho now is the time when you at least tell us when are you going to gave us the game u promised

Yup, it is true, we need a ladder system for PVP to be competitive at all. Competitive PVP keeps players wanting to play and interested in the PVP scene. I hope they will implement some kind of matchmaking/rank system in the future.

matchmaking / rank is important so the good players are fighting good players and dont get bored soon.

To be honest i pretty much like how Starcraft 2 is splited in leagues and players are working on their game in order to be promoted to higher leagues !

I hope so, but i would like to know when? the game is out. It was supposed to be “ready” and therefore should have promissed competitive PvP. I do not have that one.

So please, just tell us WHEN and whats the time line of this implementation.

definitely. there is no challenge in free tourney because most of the time you just get put up against random pugs on all three maps.

for esport there needs to be

1) competition – no competition right now, mostly just beating on pugs with the occasional challenging matchup against a similar organized team
2) prestige – no fame right now, no one can see your matches, no one knows what guilds win a lot, you go outside the mists and you just look like any other guy. at least add a server wide message “team X has just won a tourney” or “team X is dominating, winning 3 tourneys in a row” or something. add a ranking too for real.
3) variety – its really kind of boring playing the same 3 maps over and over, especially given point #1 about the level of competition. boring to play = even more boring to watch

I def agree with this – id LOVE to see an update, an ETA.

one of the most dissapointing things about Diablo 3 ( not comparing, just saying) was sitting here (STILL) waiting for PVP updates and ETA.

at least GW2 has a fun PVP system already, id just LOVE to get an update on rankings and some form of ladder.

thanks a-net

Where you need to put my signature ?
We really appreciate the hard work you done guys, but try to look into this from the other side…
You promised so much to us, to your customers and to your players, we enjoy really much what have you done, but there are some things we need to know…
Things we – players talking about and things, which are still unanswered…
What about one answer from you guys, tell us something like a: “We working on that and we’re expecting first results and test aprox in 2-3 months”.
It will probably shut us all… and you know, sooner you will provied dates/more info, sooner we will be silent

Just try to understand, “Soon” is not answer.

Thats a great activity but it wont help and its not 100% sure you get in same tournaments. Could be many open tournaments at same time.

Yeah cant wait for this. This way teams trying to go pro wouldn’t waste practice time on players starting out in tPvP and roflstomping them. This way Pros can play Pros and lower elo players can learn and climb the ladder. It would be nice to have a post from one of the devs on this.

i would want a feature that enables guilds to hold their own prized tourney matches in rentable private servers (custom tournaments) and invite the best guilds in game for the ultimate test of skill than a ladder that rewards farming and no life gaming.

I would expect that community based spvp guilds like team legacy and team paradigm to host these events.

Not only guilds but some of the fansites can do that too. I have prepared allready a whole system for leagues / tournaments. The only thing Im missing right now is … wow.. the game where i can realize it

/signed give us what you promised its a month past release I was thinking maybe they are waiting a month for teams to form and get some experience before they play for real.

But in the time being one way to sort yourself from the other teams would be make a thread screen shotting all the guys in your tpvp team showing their tourney win ratio
Its a pretty gheto way but hell idk just tossing ideas out on how to solve this ourselves.

Im sorry, while i can agree with that and try to be patient.. . i think i can´t do that. I was waiting for many years for “when its ready” and there is a lot of promisses https://www.guildwars2.com/en/the-game/pvp/ that are simply not in game. So at this point all Im asking is to know when these promisses will be in game. Just an information.. nothing more..

I seem to recall Guild Wars 1 having competitive/ranked play at launch. The ladder/rankings for guild vs guild were in place as well as the ongoing global tournament for the Hall of Heroes (via Heroes Ascent or Tombs, whichever you prefer).

Knowing this, it would be reasonable to expect that Arenanet would make some effort to even come close to how good the competitive system was back then. Sure, we have a sort of world vs world ladder, but that doesn’t count, at all. For many many reasons…

All three of these features are planned, yes. It is our tradition to not discuss in detail any feature until we have it fully implemented enough that we can talk about it with confidence, as we don’t want to promise a feature to work one way and then end up having it work a different way. We’ll save details on all of those until they are ready to be talked about.

Chaplan will be putting out a blog post in the next few days that summarizes where we stand with PvP right now, and where we’re headed. From there we’ll continue to update as other Esports features come online.

Our focus right now is making sure absolutely all of the potential issues/bugs with base tournaments and rewards are 100% cleaned up before we introduce any form of more serious competition. We’re also trying to make sure we’ve given enough time for the base strategies to develop, and for any skills/builds that are out of balance are identified. Once we’re totally convinced things are in a solid state, you’ll start seeing a roll out of major PvP esports features and we’ll get this thing going like crazy. Take this opportunity now to learn your classes, learn your builds, lockdown strategies for your teams and get ready! Once we start rolling out the esports features, it’ll build up rapidly from there.
