Always had hope the game would turn out to be pretty awesome, but I had one fear about end game and the old GW1 leanings to being more an E-Sports type of PvP than anything else. After seeing the Open World PvP my fears have been buried on that score. I have to say whilst I fought for SWTOR on these forums and knew the game would not be everyones cup of tea, I was bitterly dissapointed in the end game PvP and content. Not that it's broke and can get fixed, but that it is fundamentally flawed from the outset, meaning all updates will just be sticking plasters on a gaping wound imo. This kind of soured me to MMO's recently, as I got caught up in all the hype for WAR as well as SWTOR, and both had good and bad points but ultimately both have failed to inspire me and the majority of MMO players at end game. I have to say though GW2 is looking like the stand out MMO of recent times, even though I dont want to believe the hype and be let down again. The one thing that inspires me about GW2 more than any other recent MMO, is what KC said on the Home page, the difference between the Dev Videos, etc, is that these guys really love their title, they are really passionate about it and very confident of it, as opposed to just going through the corporate marketing process of promoting a piece of work that may as well be an excel spreadsheet, for the enthusiasm on display.
