Everyone is entitled to their opinions.
I just wonder why (and you definitely do not need to answer) people who hate a game or say they've stopped playing feel a need to come to the forums and try to convince those who like the game and still play that they need to hate/quit. I mean if you've moved on then...well...move one for crying out loud. Oh I guess that is it...you want to CRY OUT LOUD.
Because why not? Because I paid for it and because I was disappointed in it, and I want to let people know that the game isn't worth the money?
When I'm about to buy a electronic/technical device, it's always best to read people's opinions about it on the forums. Their experience has usually steered me in a good direction, whether to buy something or not. Of course, every forum had positive and negative reviews, like this one, and it was up to me to make the final judgement.
Why do you mind though? It's not like I'm gossiping your family.

Frankly i've gotten more than my money's worth out of GW2 and i will continue to. I've played quite a few games and GW2 is among the better of them. Do i want more out of it? yes. Will i get more out of it? i am sure i will. i'm not left in that position where i can only play if i think the game is worth 15 dollars that month so i can afford to be patient and let Anet do as they will.
Alright buddy, don't feel obligated to respond to my negative review of the game. You enjoy it - cool, I never said no one can possibly like it. It's not a contest.

The skill > time is far, far behind. It stopped already with nightfall.
If only "rare" stats was the maximum stats, everything after (exotic or ascended) being only different skins, I would be a lot less critic against the game.
For me it wouldn't mean less critic. The game is boring and flawed in it's core, it's not about vertical progression or no vertical progression. I don't even really care what they do about it since I don't feel compelled to play the game at all.
By "flawed in it's core" and "boring" I mean that feeling I have when playing that I'm disconnected from the rest of the game-world - heck, the game feels more like a co-op single player game than a MMO. I mean the limited number of skills, no variety between class' game play, no uniqueness. I mean separate PvE, PvP and whatever WvWvW is. I mean the pure lack of fun, that crucial ingredient that is actually really difficult to pin-point and describe, just like trying to describe charisma or love - you can't really put a finger on it, but without them it's just no good.
So, grind or no grind would actually matter if I wanted to play the game IN THE FIRST PLACE.
