The only thing your suggestion would do is get less people into WvW. That post on the last page was a perfect example. Someone who wasn't really interested in PvP, but because they had a reason to give WvW a shot, they found out that they really enjoyed it.
Now I'm sure you're going to keep preaching this garbage about how Anet is FORCING you to do it, but no, they're not. Forcing someone to do something would be negative reinforcement. "You have to go out here and fight people or you won't be able to play anything else." THAT is forcing. What Anet is doing is positive reinforcement. "Hey if you go give this side of the game a shot, you'll get some nice stuff and maybe even have a good time." They are rewarding you for effort and at the very least trying out WvW. If you're such a gigantic carebear that you refuse to even attempt any form of pvp whatsoever, why in God's name are you playing a game that is 2/3rds PvP?
If you consider running naked solo out there to do vistas and pois as WvW, sure. Is that really your idea of what WvW is? Where people would just run in random directions towards their favorite pois, with no team strategies, no carrying supplies, etc. Do you really think these players actually contribute to make WvW a better experience for everyone?
And, as stated before, the game will not be online forever either, so why are we even playing? Sometime in the future the servers WILL shut down, so why spend time on the game?
We can't base things around what might not happen for months. It is free as of now, so there is no problem.
The "fix" when they decide to charge for transfer is to simply play the game and help your server. Simple as that.
So you are saying because the server will shut down one day, therefore server transfer is a "proper fix"? That is your uber argument against the suggestion? Right...
I am helping my server alright, I am helping them to lose by running around naked because the only reason I am there is for the pois and stuff. Get real, this game is designed so that one person cannot overturn the entire WvW result, if my server is losing then it is time for a server transfer (if it is still free).
