Every time I read a post like this, I always wonder why you stick around this forum to tell us you dislike the game. Your opinion won't change the minds of the ones who do like GW2. Wouldn't you rather hang around a forum for a game you DO like?
It's not intended for the regular forum members as much as it's intended for the wider audiences who happen to stumble by and any possible visiting developers.
And, when you like a game (any game), you visit it's forums to rejoice with other players who share your feelings towards it? You gather round the camp fire, exchanging your awesome experiences in ecstasy, making bonds (brothers in arms)? Never knew that's what forums are for, interesting.
Now, what I never understood, and what's making me wonder, is why the people who DO like the game don't spend more time playing it instead of lurking on the forums, trying to shoo away the people who have criticism for it. But one can't know everything, right?

Some people enjoy the role of the annoying ex-boyfriend who hangs around to make life hell after the breakup.
Oddly enough, though Mouse finds GW2 so incredibly boring, it seems to continue providing him entertainment in the form of grousing about on Guru.
On topic, the reason to play GW2 after 2+ months is because I'm still having a lot of fun.
From what I've seen, even most players who have declared themselves tired or frustrated by the game acknowledge getting 100+ hours of enjoyment out of the game before they were done. That's more value than a single player game usually gives.
The great thing about the B2P model is that you can play it until you are no longer having fun, then take a break. Play something else, and check in occasionally to see how GW2 is going. Jump back in if new content looks interesting or the bug that was driving you crazy got fixed, and play for as long as it is fun again.
It helps if you don't expect one game to satisfy every entertainment need for months at a time.
I was mistaken, this guy knows it all.
When you need to "take a break" (most likely a permanent one) from a game not a month old (was 2 weeks after release when I got fed up with it), there's GOTTA be something wrong with it. Plummeting player base agrees with me. GW2 has lots of ex-boyfriends, doesn't it? A real promiscuous game.
