Seems like a completely forgotten part of the game.

Either this means pvp is officially a dead gamemode for anet or they are saving for a later reveal.

Wasn't watching every minute of it, but I don't think they mentioned WvW or raids either. Could be wrong. But we all know PvP and WvW are the illegitimate child Anet has abandoned. 

They mention parts of every gamemode except  for pvp

Raids are dead since...month of releasing first wing. WvW only thing that was mentioned is Alliances before xpac (those ppl are releasing Siege-turtle and not even including them in SIEGE GAME MODE). PvP as above, not a single word (and after looking at new mes spec, maybe thats good, lol).
This game is all about story, which is horribly bad compared to other MMOs, like FF14. They pressed emergency button called Cantha, because everyone loves Cantha, in hope that just because of that the story gonna bee good. Doubtly.

PvP is dead. It was shot by community in November 2016 when enforced SoloQ was voted. The fact that Anet forgotten about it, is just a consequence of SoloQ. Let's not forget that eSports (such as ESL) also removed GW2 because of SoloQ in 2017.

 

PvP is gone, dead, and buried. GW2 is all about PvE, and that peaceful Cantha will most likely sell.

 

EDIT: I also watched the stream waiting, hoping, for some CPR (CardioPulmonary Resuscitation) for PvP team play... but I received nothing, not even a mention of it. It was to be expected though.

they officially said alliances are coming in 2018, and in 2019.
at this point I think its a tradition to promise alliance is coming and not deliver

They announced they were currently investigating it, they did not announce it for release.

When the development and working on the server infrastructure actually started is another matter.

They did mention WvW and even clarified that WvW is still considered a cornerstone of the game, etc. However not a single word regarding pvp.
And no raids, but I think this should not come as a surprise to anybody. I honestly don't see that much difference between strikes and raids anyway apart from raids being basically several strikes bundled into one instance with a lot of story fluff (which nobody really asks for being in the raid and makes them very inefficient to produce) and "side-quest"-material in between like Escort or the spirit woods stuff.. Which I don't really like anyway so eh..
So for me personally, I think the shift of focus from raids to strikes is a net-positive for GW2 in several regards but then again, I'm not a "hardcore"-PvE player so maybe it's just me.

I reeeeeeeally hope they'll reveal SOMETHING regarding sPvP tho.
I don't really care about what they'd be adding tbh, just give us something.. Especially since it's Cantha so re-introducing Jade Quarry, Fort Aspenwood, etc from GW1 (maybe as 10v10 or 15v15 or something) would be perfect as new pvp modes. Or even just 2v2 / 3v3 as ATs like during the special tournament week. Maybe one or a couple Canthan maps for Conquest. Just give us a life signal Anet. Heck I'd even appreciate a dedicated GvG.

   Doesn't matter because even if they promised new maps or game modes for PvP the effort would be useless if they don't plan to hurry the pace at which they update they patches.

 

   If Blizzard isn't able to update games as Starcraft II or HotS to make them appealing in the competitive scene I don't known how your dare to think that ANet would be able to do it with the GW2 PvP.. MMOs are a niche genre in a niche segment (PC) of the gaming business, and PvP is even more niche inside all of that. Just accept it as it is.

Ideally I'd like at least 3, but probably won't happen.

 

Would you prefer Luxon, Kurzick, or Imperial for the style of the map? Any ideas for secondary mechanics?

Hollywood producer impression. Snorts coke from hookers kitten.

ALL POINTS GET DECAPED. Everyone is ported in a big cage and they fight it out till one team kills the other, of course death fog so it doesn't get stalled, the dead wait till the event is over to get their death timer, everyone from the wining team gets resurrected and has time to cap the points till the other team spawns.

 

The other is no points just capture the flag game mode.

 

And maybe WvW stronghold type thing that doesn't suck, like having objectives around the map that help you break castle gates and walls, As and example summoning a kittening Siege turtle, bonus points for being able to monetize the skins for it since it will get a purpose in PVP and not only in PVE. Stronghold didn't work cause it was trying to be LoL or Dota , but I think Heroes of the Storm type of mechanics would fit better GW2.

I'm still waiting for literally anything worth 30$ to buy eod. The story is gonna be Disney sjw garbage so it will ruin anyone's vision of cantha that played the original. That leaves battlegrounds imo , the only thing I would buy the game for. They are high if they expect people to just continue in conquest after 8 years or whatever.

 

Lol I'd rather keep pvping in WoW where the devs molest their employees honestly BGS are just so good compared this wannabe eSports trash.

 

They didn't mention pvp and GvG or such would be a pretty important announcement so that essentially means this is dead on arrival for anyone except the collection addicts who wanna farm same events 24 7 good luck with that boys
