So it looks like the WvW Team has finally realised that there is no real incentive to try and actually win in WvW and to correct this, they have added a new reward system based partially on how well your world is winning skirmishes! I think this is long over due and will hopefully breathe some competitive spirit back into WvW. They've also added 2 new armor sets and a legendary backpack that looks pretty damn awesome in my opinion. If WvW has been on the back of your mind lately or you just haven't explored the game mode at all, now seems like a good time to get into it!
