I had stopped playing WvW/GW2 all together and just figured that WvW was going away slowly but surely. Communication is key for a game and particularly for a game mode like WvW. I have no idea if these changes will change WvW in a positive way, I hope they do, but just hearing Devs speak directly with the forums and share/discuss ideas is in my opinion probably the biggest thing you could have done. Please consider doing it more and more often! Good job!
