I'm a sort of old school pvp'er as well (early 06-late08). I'm very curious to hear your (or anyone else's) thoughts on GW2 PvP - I own it, but cannot run it as I need a new comp. I've heard very mixed reviews, and since I cannot get in touch with old friends, I thought I'd come on here to find PvP reviews of GW2.
I started playing 1 again and had forgotten how much I love the PvP mechanics of Guild Wars.... It saddens me to find that the gameplay mechanics for 2 have changed so much. I can only hope that arena net will make good pvp again for us. Maybe I'm wrong about my assumptions because it's just that - an assumption. I have not played 2 yet.
Thank you for the time, Chuck
