Well it's really hard to convince some one who seems to already made up their mind about the game. I thought the graphics were pretty decent and the environments were beautiful. Here's why I like the game.

-No grind whatsoever, seriously, if you just run around doing dynamic events, tasks, or just exploring in general you can easily level 2-3 times a day just playing casually.

-WvWvW. Three servers duke it out on a seperate PvP map, anybody can join at any level since all players are scaled to level 80 for a more even playing field. I know during the beta it was people just mobbing each other still one mob beat the other, but I imagine once the game is released and people start creating guilds, things will become a little more organized.

-Dynamic events, kinda like the PQ's akin to WAR but can play out several ways. Example: there was an npc town being attacked by raiders, the objective was to repel said attackers. If you failed, the raiders took hold of the npc town and you would have to fight back for it. If you succeeded you went out to the raiders base of operations and drove them from the area. I feel that's a fresh, if simple, twist to group quests.

-Spell combos, like seriously this right here, you can pull off some amazing stuff with spell combos like cloaking your entire group, create of volley of curing arrows the possibilities are limitless really.

-Level scaling. Are you level 60 and want to help a friend who's just starting? With this feature, your character will be scaled down to the lower level area so that you one shotting everything in sight and generally ruining the experience.

-Structured PvP, everyone's level 80 with all the skills and all the equipment unlocked for purely skill based combat

Have yet to try GW2, but I played Aion for a long time. While I find NC's customer support amazingly sub-par, I loved the game and I have no doubt GW2 is every bit as stunning as their previous releases. And, if they've almost eliminated the grind? Well, sign me up. That was the worst part of Aion. So, if they've gone a different route in that respect, I will definitely be trying GW2.
