A Few Words on Guild Wars 2

So I've been going through my many many many games and stumbled upon Guild Wars 2. I bought this game when it came out last year, played some but for some reason never managed to get really engulfed into the game. I started it up today and saw that I had missed a lot of content, a 2+GB download proved this to me, and after loading in I immediatly saw the changes they had made to the game. It feels like they upgraded the graphics a bit, they changed abilities (I made a Sylvari Ranger since I've been out of the game for so long I just want to start anew) and they changed the Achievement system. So far I've liked what I saw, especially the chests with goodies you get when attaining a certain amount of achievement points! Unlike in World of Warcraft it really feels like they want you to do things because it earns you bonuses for your characters and I like that.

However, the events in the game just boggle me. I stumbled in halfway through the voting for a new skycaptain with Zephrytes and everything a few weeks back and now it's Queen's Jubilee. I've done some fights on my Warrior but the event itself kind of eludes me. There are apparently hot air balloons and torches and what not and wow it's just all too much. And it's not like you have an event and then have some peace, no the events are being stringed behind eachother in rapid suspension and if you're still a "beginning" player, I consider myself this because I never made it past lvl 25, all of it can be quite overwhelming.

Maybe I have been dumbed down by WoW, maybe I just need to spend more time on getting back into the game... I'll let you know if I'm able to do that or not.
