#2098632 Anet on why there is vertical progression

Hence my point, why are people surprised? EotN came out years ago. YEARS. This isn't an overnight change, its been occurring since the release of at least Nightfall where progression was introduced not through changes in armor but changes in PvE skills that made people more and more powerful.

People may well have been unhappy (and are free to be unhappy now, I'm not arguing against people's opinions) but I'm not sure where the surprise is coming from.

I think the anticipation was that A.Net would remove the things that destroyed GW1 and focus on the things that worked when they decided to re-boot the game with GW2. But, as it turns out, it seems that the things that destroyed GW1 were actually the things that A.Net thought were worth building GW2 on, and the things that made GW1 what it was, were the things that were holding A.Net's vision back and needed to be removed.
