Nice write-up, I was in agreement with almost everything you wrote.

If it had been one of them only, I would have been fine with it.  This is a bit stupid.  Report it in-game.

In Topic: Colin Leaves Arenanet...Good or Bad?

The problem with determining whether or not this is good or bad is that we don't know how much effect he had on policies in the studio.  The title is vague, and Mo probably has the majority of control.  Since Mo can now choose what they legally release, and choose what to work on, I think it'll be difficult to assess whether or not the current direction was his fault or not.

Been a long time since I visited/posted these forums. How is the game going? Looks like an expansion hit. Is it any good? Forums seem dead compared to the good old days of endless banter back and forth.

Guru died off, the news section gets a lot of hits, but the game forums and reddit have taken over all communication.  The game is holding up well, but Heart of Thorns underperformed according to the NC call (although, they did expect 60% of all GW2 players ever to buy HoT, that was a pretty obvious overstatement on their part).

In-game, it's healthy.  PvE and LFG are always full, but nerfs to dungeons have hit them a lot.  There is still a lot of backlash about that move, and its deserved.  They essentially nerfed all rewards from dungeons and killed off a really healthy part of the game.

Question: do you think GW2 will be the last great attempt at an MMO in the traditional style? Do you think it was a stepping stone to more micro transactions like we see taking over all over games?

Nah.  The expansion/boxed sales blew all gem sales out of the water.  If that doesn't say something about both the best way forward and the overall approval of gamers about f2p v.s p2p, I don't know what will.

As a Sylvari, you can actually hear what Mordremoth is saying whenever he growls.  Otherwise, minor changes.
