Yeah, that sounds ugly to me, too. Having to play alongside folks who've got a lot more money than play experience at the higher levels does NOT sound like a good thing at all. It's the first serious mark against GW2 I've seen so far.

I doubt I would skip playing the game because of it but it's quite worrisome.

"It gets very chaotic though."

Great! One thing that can get real annoying in big team efforts is that you end up feeling like a cog instead of a player. You get assigned your role before the battle starts and you have to stick to it - which tends to translate into clicking 3 or 4 buttons over and over. More chaos means more need to evaluate what I need to be doing from minute to minute.

I also like the sound of these events where you can do several different things to help out. That should help the replayability quite a bit!

Thanks for the impressions, wolfgrimdark!
