I actually thought the wvw lobby would've been some place good for new people to come and learn about WvW since you know we have like ZERO tutorials or explanations beyond being asked in /m /t and the ocassional youtube video which people don't really know are there. I had a hope that there was going to be a training ground for them, and people help explaining things, and maybe a wall or whatever to show how to do placements of siege, and learning things like disabling autotarget/snaptoground (also for placing siege and for ease of fighting in certain scenarios). I thought it was going to be a place to hold some kind of automated gvg tournaments. I thought it would be a place for people to practice their targetting with siege and to fight off any fear of having to do it in front of people or in the field and making mistakes and getting yelled at. I was hoping for anet to make it an open place for everyone to improve and get to know and learn about wvw from veterans and guilds and get recruited and even share builds. In turn if those things happened, I knew Anet would bolster more confidence and trust in everyone once again to see that they were willing to make WvW a bigger thing. The lobby could've been a nice thing to implement some of that stuff and made available to all. People could learn and practice or duel there before they go to the real WvW where there should absolutely be no hand holding. That lobby would be the safe zone before we throw them into the real lion's den where there will be no mercy, no crutches, only battle in every shape and form.
What are your thoughts on what the WvW lobby could have/should have been? What would you like to see in there or if they ever decide to make a public lobby? Should there be a public wvw lobby? Should the paid lobby only be for gvg lobby? Discuss your ideas and vision for an open wvw lobby.
