GW2 is not going to have MORE classes just NEW races that are playable. In GW:EN you will get to SEE the new races and NOT play them. To answer your level cap complaint read this this quote.

Either way, ANet seems intent to stay close to its philosophy of keeping players on a levelled playing field (or approximately so).
This means NO grinding!

To answer this statement please read this from the PC Gamer for the month of May.

Also there will be NO monthly fee for both GW:EN and GW2.

I have to say it.
Tell your friends.
Inform your neigbors.
Put your guild on alert.

Another thing is if releasing every 6 months wasn't working as a marketing model then tell me why the next titles being released are 1 year (GW:EN) and 2 years away (GW2).
