ArenaNet’s Guild Wars 2 game designer Jonathan Sharp dropped a new video showing off the latest PvP map Temple Of The Silent Storm.

A Kodan inspired map featuring new PvP mechanics but sadly, parts of the community still feel ArenaNet has not given a true map designed for the hardcore eSports style PvPer.

Whether fans of the PvP find this to be true, you can still check out the new map and let us know in the comments below where you stand on the matter and your thoughts on this new map.

When he is not studying to become a Radiology Technician or working, he spends his time with friends/family, consuming games, weight training, working on his pet projects Holo Call/The Fahrar, scouring the net for the latest gaming news, and showing the world what the true definition of a nub means.

    Best pvp change =  The /rank command will now show your PvP ranking. This only works in the PvP lobby and cannot be used inside an active PvP game… if you read that patch not you might think they are trying to kill this game…

      I don’t understand how the sPvP ranking system works. Do you earn qualifying points by playing paid games? Do you loose points from losing paid games?  Does it matter how any matches you play?  Guildcast and Build cast don’t seem to cover this.

        1st place  5 qualifying points2nd place 3 qualifying points3rd place 1 qualifying points4th place 1 qualifying points

        the more  qualifying points you have = the higher you are and you don’t lose any if you lose games and it does not matter how many games you play

    Getting a really nice Shado Pan Pandarian monk feel…. wait what game is this?  Meditation, polar bears in armor. huh.

    Arenanet really need to do something about sound production in their promotional videos. They seem to really start out bad to the point of distracting.

      The Kodan have been around for a very very very long time now. Trust me, they aren’t copying off WoW. Not this time.

      • Dularr

        Lol, figured they had been in the lore for awhile, the idea of pandas or bear warriors is not the most original.  

        But using them in a map or that mechanic was sure to bring up comparison. 

    • DoctorOverlord

      Agreed. The video was cool and the commentary was interesting but the sound-quality was so terrible I just couldn’t listen.

    Lag really sold it for me!
