In Topic: Do you still play GW2, and why?

I haven't played in about 2 months.  If I do it's to get a little bit more advancement out of my main character and to level up my alts.  Which is fun every now and then but since I explored everything on my main, it gets boring fast.  I mainly am just playing the alts to see the skills.  I pretty much played the game out when it first released.  I'm not the same as I was when GW came out, or I'd probably be playing this one just as much.

So I'll come back in the next month or week and play for a bit then leave for a while again and keep doing that till an expansion comes out and then I will hop back on my main, do that content and then repeat ad infinum.

Same thing happens with LOTRO and Diablo 3, though I have a bit more fun playing Diablo 3 every now and then.

Well gonna change this up, now I've been playing almost daily..kinda got back into the game with the last living world thing.  So I've been doing and enjoying those, tried out some WvW.   Trying to finish World Exploration and get achievement points.  Now I just need to find a bigger guild so I can do some other things I haven't been able to do.

I have under 200 hours played.   But I have around 30g, 22 or so of it cash, the rest in everything else.

Which is funny cause in GW I strived to get up to something decent money wise and I'd say I was middle class in that game but I don't care as much in this game.

I think a bit of that is rosy-tinted glasses, because I for one got extremely tired of ecto farming. It had its moments and rewards, but it was still a grind. Now, I'm not saying that GW2's methods have been the best so far; I wish that all sets of armor had a standard method of being obtained, and I think GW1's method was good enough: Gather mats. You can divvy up the drops however you like, in effect making some obtainable easier through spamming dungeons, but I don't agree with spamming the crap out of one single dungeon for a set of gear, or farming karma, etc.
Yeah I got tired of it too eventually but no where near as fast as I got tired of it in Guild Wars 2.  It should have been like Guild Wars was because then a lot of this grind complaining wouldn't be around.

It's actually fairly entertaining to see how much QQ is going on between people who paid a one-time fee for this game. Do you cry this much when you buy a game like Assassin's Creed 3 or something similar and it blows? The game is nothing perfect right now. Give it some time. If you hate it, stop playing. Seriously not that difficult.

But where's the fun in failing to milk something for all it's worth, right?
Well, Guild Wars was more fun when it was released, and for a longer time.  So it doesn't make sense that the same developers wouldn't do the same thing with this game.
