Two things; the gear treadmill is present in subscription games, and we got that. And also, I want the content ANet was releasing with GW1.
so, are you under the impression that you are not going to ever see that content?
that makes me feel like you guys arent taking into consideration that the game has been out a measily 3 months. i believe the content will come but it isnt going to get here over night.
the community(a small percentage really) is complaining about the apparent lack of content, but you must understand that because you are not being charged a sub fee, waiting for content should not be that big of an issue as you are not paying every month to play the game.
its a no pressure approach.
think about it, most of the recent mmorpgs that have come out have always charged a sub. because we had to pay to play a game every month, we got into the mindset that bugs needed to be fixed faster, content needed to be released faster etc. - because we are paying to play every month and its what we deserve.
but this doesnt apply to GW2. i want new content but i dont expect ANet to crank it out as fast as i expected in a game like SWTOR, because im not getting charged every month to play GW2! the pressure is off.
so i dont understand why threads like this exist barely 3 months into a game (2 months 26 days) - you guys arent being fair to the developers.
bottom line: if GW2 is in the exact same state that its in now, 6 months down the road, then id get pissed, but not barely 3 months in guys. . .
