    I didn't really talk much about the experiences of the Dynamic Events I did particpated in. So I will do so now while I have some time.

    Arenanet basically kept their word on how they work. I noticed when more players showed up more enemies and the level of difficulty had changed. I had particapted in the human area the centaurs attacking with a few players. Was very fun and entertaining to say at the least.

    I came back to that same DE later on and there were many more players and noticed how much harder it was compared to the first time. Still was fun and entertatining but I also got pve rolled by not paying attention to the mad rush of a huge group of centaurs coming in on me :p Yes, you better not just stand there and learn how to dodge real quick when you get attacked. GW2 survivabilty lesson number one learned real quick lol.

    I really enjoyed after the many DE I tried on how little things also contributed to completing them. I liked how the boss would scale with more players around. I was also one shotted to death but luckily I was revived by my dear trusted guild mate. I just totally enjoyed while exploring how I came across DE. With how they change if you win or fail really impressed me the most.

    DE will change how gaming quests should be done. It's truly happening what you are told , not just a bunch of NPC mobs standing around waiting for you to kill them. You see what is going on and you are part of the game and story. You feel as you are actually contributing if you particpate. You can avoid them and just dont do them. It's a players choice which is totally refreshing in this new generation of games.

    Here below are some videos from MMOCultureBlog on youtube who took time to make videos of their DE experiences:

    OH!!!! Watching these videos just makes me miss playing all that much more :( GW2 is absolutely the most fun in an MMO I've had in at least five years and it was hard to give it up - even without a choice. I literally wanted to harass ArenaNet about letting us play every weekend, or, even better, every day! Both my hubby and I are anxious to play again and we check our email hoping for a notice of when the next BWE will start in addition to firing up the game in the hopes that the servers are up even for a little while, lol. GW2 freaks? Yeah, we are. Honestly, I don't know how the earlier testers kept their mouths shut even with an NDA in place. It had to be torture not being able to talk about differing experiences and views on everything that they got to see. At least now we are allowed to share info and that is what keeps me somewhat pacified until the next BWE.

    I loved the dynamic events. The personal story preview was great too, and I can see myself getting into that, but it's nice that on the way to the persona story mission or just walking around, you're almost always going to have an event nearby to help with. I really can't wait until the next beta weekend! :D
