Guild Wars: Nightfall Details, PvP Event

This Guild Wars Press Release has details on the next chapter in Guild Wars, which will go by the recently revealed title Nightfall (story). Here's word on the add-on, and plans for a PvP event at the end of this month:
July 18, 2006 (BELLEVUE, WA) — ArenaNet®, developer of the world's leading subscription-free online roleplaying games Guild Wars® and Guild Wars FactionsTM, and NCsoft® Corporation, the world's leading developer and publisher of online computer games, announce today the title of the next game in the award-winning franchise, Guild Wars NightfallTM. Further, Guild Wars Nightfall has entered the beta testing stage and Guild Wars players worldwide are invited to participate in an exclusive, first-look player-versus-player (PVP) event, July 28 — 30, 2006.

During the PVP Preview Event, both Guild Wars and Guild Wars Factions® players will get a first look at Guild Wars Nightfall, and will be able to try out the two new professions being introduced in the game; the Dervish, a scythe-wielding holy warrior, and the Paragon, guardian angel of the Elonian people. In addition to testing out the new professions and arenas, players will also be able to compete for items that will be exchangeable for a variety of rewards throughout the weekend event.

I'll come clean, I'm not a MMO guru. Not at all. I've also got not much interest in the others in the field (WoW for example). A friend recommended GW to me, as a change from the FPS rut I was in, and I really liked the laid back pace, the exploration and satisfying progression. Plus, it was an easy way to get coop action with chums, as this seems to be on a par with quantum mechanics for FPS devs.

This term "grinding" seems too negative a term to me, but then maybe this is my subjectivity talking. What you see as, what I presume from the inflection, a chore, I see as progression. Conversely, I get not real sense of progression from the PvP aspects of the game.

Maybe Anet want a different audience than me, maybe they will get that audience as well. However, unless some sort of effort is given to the PvE aspect of the game, I'm probably going to have to pass this time around.
