That's your argument? Why does playing another 30 minutes not count? Maybe it does by starting a dungeon, or doing a jumping puzzle, or crafting or playing the trading post. Just because you can't think of anything worth doing after the daily isn't my problem. Many more people are able to find something to do.
I'm sorry you are so nearsighted as to not understand that fact.
And, if you think that people don't work for their rewards, whether it is in a game, or in the gym, or on a chessboard or anywhere else they deem worth their time outside of "work" then I'm sorry that you've never really found anything worth your while to achieve.
I truly feel bad for you. If you don't understand why it is worth having rewards that are available only for people willing to spend the time earning those rewards, then you don't understand why the word achievement exists in the first place.
Best of luck on that job too - I bet they don't take credit cards for promotions.
Thank you for your concern. I've played chess quite extensively, but I have yet to see anyone work for anything while doing so. Chess is a game, it is played for fun and for the challenge. And sometimes for money, but that is still not work. Anyway, supposedly you should be able to get the daily while you are playing dungeons, or doing jumping puzzles, etc. Or at least, so everyone tells me. And while it's true that it is easy to get the daily, it is quite sad (but understandable) that the daily can't be obtained at the player's own terms. This suggestion is merely an attempt to help those players!
This is a stupid idea, what's the point of playing the game if you can just buy everything from gem store.
The point would be to play the game instead of chasing for rewards.
Not much to say besides its pay too win and a lame idea
This is not pay2win, it is pay2savetime, just like the xp boosts are.
You can play the game without spending time? You, sir, are my hero.
The stuff you need to play the end game is really nothing more than masterwork. Chasing rewards is part of ANY MMMORPG, and lately it became a trend in FPSs too.
What about the past 79 levels, the story line, the gear progression, the map completion with all the hearts and dynamic events? Skipping all that breaks the idea of the game. Have you ever hear "it's the journey, not the destination that matters" What you think 'would be nice' is something that the game design opposes.
30 minutes rewards you laurels, the next 30 minutes could reward you gold, karma, exp, dungeon token, or playing with that friend of yours that need so much help from a character with full ascended gear. I am pretty sure as long as you show there it wont be "rude" to have exotic gear.
You are mistaking "working" and "playing". I do not view playing as a chore, and in GW2 it is surely not. Games are meant to be played, and in RPG's there is progression based in the time, choices and effort you put in your character.
If you still view playing video games as work, maybe you should look for a different way to spend your free time, and money.
Arena Net clearly stated that this is NOT the final implemention. There are going to be more ascended peaces and more ways to obtain them. The achievement system is half done at the moment, in less than 20 days we well see where is it going.
AN said very, very long ago that gems store will give only cosmetic items. Don't make them liers.
I love this game, I do. I have been playing MMOs for the past 10 years and i can tell you, that there are many games you can play at the moment where you can buy top gear and walk around the game to have your "fun". GW2 should not be one of those, and it was made clear and year before launch.
Also, compared to other games , gw has very few really good sets (looks). I will gladly point you games where you can buy gear and it will look times better than any exotic/ascended.
No, you need exo/asc/inf gear to play at level 80. It's possible to * around in masterwork gear, but why would you want to do that?
And while the storyline of the game indeed is the journey, the 1-79 levels, the gear progression, and all the rest gives absolutely nothing to me, except a feeling of being artificially restricted. If it gives something to you, then fine, just don't pay for getting instant 80. We can both be happy in such a system.
It would absolutely be rude to not provide the best possible help. And how come the gameplay that gets me the daily won't get me any gold, karma, xp and so on?
You claim that playing GW2 is not work, yet you mention effort. How do you reconcile this?
If only cosmetic items exist in the gem store, how come that I can buy an item that increases my karma gain rate? Thus they are already liars.
Thank you for your offer, but I would not want to play some Korean crap.
I hope I have laid your concerns to rest and that you will support the possibility to buy laurels in the gem store!
Then it wouldn't be a daily challenge now would it?
I suppose you are slighted by the fact that there is a monthly challenge too, but it only gives 10 laurels and not 30?
Seriously, here is a bridge, now get over it.
That is exactly the point, it would not be a daily challenge, nor need it be. If laurels were available in the gem store, it would increase the flexibility for the players, so that they could skip a day without feeling the stress of having to log in or else losing out on a laurel. They would have to pay a small sum for the luxury, of course, but that would just help ANet.
Thank you for the pretty drawing of a bridge, and it is the bridge to enough laurels for us all! Let us just hope that ANet will let us cross it together, instead of leaving those who can't log in every day on the other side...!!
