So let me start by saying i'm not a forum person anymore, i used to use forums 24/7/365... but I only use them for things like this now, so excuse my terrible summarization etc.
And... i haven't played seriously in a long time, mind you i enjoy Guild Wars and have been around since GW1,GW2 beta, and GW2 launch etc etc... but i don't have 50001hrs like many do.
I have a few questions about the world restructuring that's happened?happening? link post: https://en-forum.guildwars2.com/discussion/26547/world-restructuring
So, the way it's written, I had to kind of assume what it's saying is that it's removing World selection, which was basically in plain text :
"Since worlds will not exist any longer, the "World Selection" that currently is available in character select will be eliminated, and instead a selection for playing in either North America or Europe will replace it."
And this means for all of us, servers w/ names practically go away as a choice and it's 100% based off of WvWvW participation..., at least that's how i read it
This just seems weird, like you're going to be placed in a world, based solely off of WvWvW participation and rank etc...
I may be mis-understanding this because many questions were unanswered in the original post in the first place.
Do worlds randomly place you based off of WvWvW participation, your guilds participation etc?
If you were in Crystal Desert, are you randomly taken out of Crystal desert just because with this update you are auto-sorted into worlds?
What happens to the current world structure, the selection goes away, but it's not stated whether or not you can even move to similar worlds as friends, not specifically guild mates, but just friends list?
I may be wrong, but it seems like it's 100% based on WvWvW and what guild you are in and how much they play WvWvW...
It's just... wrong to forcefully push players into a world because of WvWvW, especially for those who don't play WvWvW often or at all. I probably have friends who have been in WvWvW lobbies just to get weapons to use temporarily for PvE because of stats or something similar... it's just... weird.
Apologies in advance for my terrible posting skills.
