As a rr83 bw there isnt a single player I can 2 shot who is rr65-80. Not sure where anyone got that idea from lol.

WAR wont be closed; simple fact is SWTOR isnt out yet. EA is still trying to attract investors to SWTOR and will not cancel WAR until a few months after the release of SWTOR for that reason. They simply wont want the bad publicity.

Rift I dont think will kill WAR off, having beta tested the pvp in Rift it simply isnt as good as WAR. (the pve however is much better but lets face it no one played WAR for its pve content)

Rift will have some severe population balance issues (defiant hugely outnumber guardian on all the pvp servers) and I suspect the end game will be too grindy for alot of players. For example the prestige level 4 gear set alone comes to around 1 million fame and there will likely be higher sets introduced after that over time
.
The targetting in the Rift pvp is truly awful - its very difficult to 'click'. Your also your going to get similar problems of lowbies being ganked in open rvr as you do in WAR.
However Rift is at least promising to correct some issues such as introducing a premade vs premade warfront (scenario) queue which would be great if it works.

I suspect after SWTOR comes and after a few months if its successfull EA will close WAR. However I dont think it will be and its likely WAR will keep on running until a few months after GW2 is released. So probably around mid 2012 until its closed.
