Arenanet has said that they experienced a major failure with one of their backend systems, and that this has caused not only the trading post to go down (as I'm sure you've noticed) but also to cause intermittent issues with partying and guilds.

The Summon Mistfire Wolf elite is pretty cool and does some decent damage. Other than that there is no in game advantage from one copy of the game to another.

I would say: Great!

Even thought there's still some problems with some systems (Party/Guild and trading, camera), everything else is really awesome. The questing system is not as boring as many I've saw, and you almost always have the choice to just kill monsters or to help in some other way. The event system is also really interesting, and it adds dynamism to the game. I also love doing those jumping puzzles.

The WvWvW is way better than the attempt made in LOTRO for this kind of PvP.

And s there's no recurrent subscription few, it's cheaper than other big MMOs

So far so good:

The Good:

Questing is very dynamic, and you normally have a few different ways of assisting in the Heart Quests, ranging from killing mobs, destroying equipment to even gathering items.

Dynamic Events can be fun, especially with the Centaurs in some of the zones.

Game + 2 xpacs (when they release and estimate 1 xpac/yr or so) is still cheaper than the WoW for a year.

The Bad:

WvW (at least on Norther Shiverpeaks) needs to be worked on some. They should look at increasing the caps bit more.

Lots of bugs still, but they are working on it, and its a MMO on release, they could beta til the cows come home and not see some of the stuff. A lot of the biggest issues is with the trading post.

Hacks and Exploiters. Anet will perma ban you if you knowingly and clearly use an exploit. An example is when it was clear that Level 2 cultural Weapons were going for 1/1000 of their intended price and (costing about 21 Karma PER weapon as opposed to 10-20k) and people just dropping thousands of karma points in it to capitalize on this. Those that did so some what got a 3 day ban if you were not so over the top in exploiting. Also, they have zero tolerance for botting.

Eh, I find GW2 to be decent. It doesn't have the lasting appeal of a subscription MMO like wow though (even though I stopped playing that a while ago)
