Why? You do not need tanks and healers for pvp. Plenty of games out there outside of the mmorpg market do PVP multiplayer just fine without tank/healer, etc.

I don't see how that makes them WoW lite? WoW has all the staples of the Trinity setup from healers/tanks/dps, etc.

I was mostly replying to your claim that combat was all about killing, which simply isn't true in a strategical scenario. This doesn't hold true in FPS, RTS, fighting games, GW1, chess or even most MMOs.

This game is not really "outside the MMO market" either, so I fail to see your point. Of course pvp in the context of this game requires healers; in any sort of coherent, team-based pvp self-heals are never going to be enough to reliably negate pressure across an entire team. Did you pvp (tombs/gvg?) in GW1? The basic team format was setup as front line (melee damage, typically high armor, although not tanks per se), midline (interrupts/utility/support damage) and backline (healing/protection). Yeah, you can probably build a pvp game without this type of utility, but it's either going to be some kind of world pvp nonsense (hence the WoW comment), or not strategical at all.

My only use for GW was gvg, and tombs to a much lesser extent, so I just hope they bring something like that into the new game.

Some iPhone 3D flying action games are very nice such as "Tiger of the Pacific"

I would love it if the PvE was more enjoyable - I'm not always in the mood for hardcore challenge and I hate grinding.

Yeah, I'm weird
