WvW Update & Much Shorter Server List
For the upcoming Beta Weekend Event, ArenaNet has fixed some bugs that pestered the matchmaking system during BWE2. From the blogpost we can gather that it’s probably going to be a lot tougher to keep WvWvW under domination by one specific world, although its supposed to still be possible when correctly coördinated. They also noted that during the launch period, ArenaNet will hold smaller 24-hour matchmaking games to decide which world is best fitted against the other server, which should definitely help matching up the strongest with the strongest.
Another big point made in the blogpost is the announcement of the new worlds. Rather than the mega list we got during BWE2, ArenaNet has decided to scale it back, a lot, so that you will find that your world has a lesser chance to have a low world population which should make Dynamic Events much more interesting, as well as benefit your WvWvW ranking. Read on to see the list, but make sure to read the blogpost over at ArenaNet to see why they decided on the shorter list if you’re interested!
