    The following is an interview between Pwyff, of Zam, and Jon Peters, one of the GW2 game designers, discussing competitive PvP, combat and GW2's eSports aspirations! I found this piece to be especially interesting:

    "ZAM: Speaking of competitive team-based PvP, eSports has been making a big push into the public sphere, with more players turning to streams to generate consistent revenue while playing in tournaments for the prestige and bigger cash prizes. Do you have any major plans to support eSports gaming in Guild Wars 2 that you can share?
    Jon: Absolutely. We consider it to be one of the primary goals of Guild Wars 2 competitive PvP to make it into an eSport. We plan to have daily tournaments, monthly tourneys and a yearly world championship. I can't give out tons of details on these yet, but I just wanted you guys to know that we plan to have these things and support them."

    Can you imagine how cool that would be!!!!
