I just started playing GW 2, and am having a lot of fun so far. The thought process that went behind everything in the game is great. From the way weapons change your skills, to the special abilities, to the way you progress through the game (world events were a great idea I think)

I have yet to play PvP or WvW yet... but WvW seems like the closest thing to resemble RvR combat since DAOC... which I played for over 4 years.

So, how is WvW actually playing out for anyone familiar with DAOC? Is it similar, how does GW2 unique combat system play into it all?
