    As a hardcore player/PvP'er I want to get the most out of this game as humanly possible. This includes obtaining 100% of the achievements. Which means completing all content in the world/WvWvW and ofcourse SPvP.

    During the Beta weekend, I ran a lot of SPvP and at the pinicle took a team of Randoms to 10 gold chests in a row. So I have a good concept of how it works.

    The Team I am looking for is as follows:

    Elementalist: Me! :D
    Warrior:
    Guardian:
    Ranger/Engineer:
    Mesmer/Necro:


    I am not sure if you are aloud substitutes in teams yet, but wouldn't mind having a good player to be able to fill all the roles to a decent level. (remember you dont need to level PvP characters.)

    I plan on playing this game every Sunday - Thursday ( I like to keep my weekends free to go drink in the pub, I'm Scottish after all). and due to not knowing when the WvWvW Raids will be set up it is hard to make a timetable, but I will be arranging it around the guild's main focus of WvWvW.

    The goals for this team, is to be one of the better teams, During my ranked play in WoW i made Gladiator status a lot (top 10%), I plan on carrying this through to Guild Wars 2 aswell.

    Who knows maybe we can get all the way to ESL and make some money. No harm in trying. :)

    I know there isnt a lot of information at the moment, so feel free to ask questions and I will answer them as they arise. I will also update the thread when more information becomes available, but my main purpose is to get a team together so we can play at the next beta weekend and build strategies and see what works and what doesn't.

    So let me know.

    I can fill the necromancer role, >>>>>but like in Gw1<<<<< i dont think play a specific class in spvp will be right move, probably the best move is start to think less at Guild Wars 2 and more to Build Wars 2, just like Gw1. So basically let's say i can fill any role according to the need.

    You do need to be versatile but sticking to several ones you know might be the best until none of them are required.

    @Necionet
    Actually i think max 2 classes per person in gw2 is going to be enough. In gw1 it seems all classes had specific roles (i didnt play it but my friend tried to teach me basics) but here is more about 5man coordination and only thing i can think of that is required to have in team is swiftness long duration buff that is aoe for beggining of game (ranger, engineer have one but not sure who more). Groups mostly look like to have 2man team that have glass cannon and guardian and 3 semi balanced roamers or simply 4 roamers and tanky guardian/warrior. Max 2 classes (or 1 if its Engineer, Elementalist, Ranger or Warrior)chosen correctly (for example Necromancer and Guardian as 2 mains) in gw2 will be able to fill any role in sPvP. Thats my opinion.

    About team i would like to hear more info on people who would be in.

    Yeah, in Gw1 there was specific role during a GvG, "usually" 2 melee 3 midliner 2 healer and 1 flagrunner, and according to the metagame and skill balancing, there was 2 or 3 class that could fill a role. For example when i was playing a flagrunner could be a elementalist a ritualist or even a monk, but what i was trying to say is that like in Gw1, Anet will probably keep changing the skill to "refresh and balance" the metagame, and probably there will be different team build to have better chance on each map you are going to play, so basically i think you need to be ready to change often your play style.

    Id like to fill the spot for warrior then.

    Like said earlier in this thread, my long term goal is that I can master any class in the game and go play that when our setup needs that.

    possibly ill try to get comfortable with engineer since I feel like a high skilled engineer can be much more valuable then a high skilled warrior.

    Due to engineer buffs and nerfs from cb1, a lot just use pistol shield and face roll their raza nagas till they have a nose bleed.

    Warriors are defo higher skill cap atm.

    Ele's and thiefs top it tho ;p

    im happy to take part as a ranger main, and will prob roll a necro alt, until i get my hands on the the next bwe its hard to know. I suspect Boon will have enough interest to field a few teams so it wont hurt to have tournaments to figure out who is best at any given role. I tend to lean towards ranged DPS and support and consistently suck in a tank role, but this game seems to redifine the roles anyway so will be intersting to see how those at esports level put teams together and what builds they use. I can see racial elite skills being important too and as said above i can see Anet constantly making changes to keep the FOTM builds constanstly changing so its important we have many racial/class options at our disposal.

    I Love theory crafting as much as playing so cant wait to get me hands on the game so i can actually do some with a degree of credibility.
