Chaba.5410 Posted December 6, 2021 Share Posted December 6, 2021 (edited) I've played this beta so far on three different accounts, 2 in NA and 1 in EU, during EU to late NA timezones. Two things I have noticed so far: 1) The mixture of different play styles on individual teams seems to have increased. I've maintained for years on this forum that diversity of playstyles leads to a healthier WvW as teams offer more variety of content. To me this beta illustrates that principle. Or maybe it's just a wider variety of players checking out the beta because it's beta. 2) Opponents are no longer as predictable. The reshuffling increased uncertainty about the team you are fighting against. You may recognize individual guilds and remember how and when they play, but it is no longer "Oh we are against SoS so they're just going to PPT off hours against us and NA will be boring". The removal of "server profile" or "flavor" makes WvW actually new and exciting again because of the uncertainty. Being challenged because of the unknowns is more fun to me. It's human nature to not like so much uncertainty so my opinion may be unpopular and that's ok. My hope is that others realize how uncertainty is one of the elements that make games more engaging and is something we should be embracing.
