In Topic: Has anet put their cash shop before content?

^^ D3 sold 2.5 in it's first weekend, plus some people have gotten full refunds (included gem purchases).

First point is invalid, D3 being more successful doesn't make GW2 less successful. $120 million is $120 million if D3 made $1 or $1 billion.
Your second point while more valid is still not a good argument. If GW2 was as good as the hype and/or they fixed the broken stuff quickly there would have been much less refund requests.

Granted this is coming from a person that really wanted GW2 to be the greatest MMO of all time, and while let down, I still hope it gets close to what I wanted it to be, which will bring me back.

you people should be thankful that they are constantly giving new content for FREE, u paid 60 bucks only, not 6 million. stop demanding so much and being greedy.

And to OP, they fixed much much much more bug comparing to the new gem store they put in, this is a buy to play game, they will need some sort of income to pay for their employee, game development, server maintenance cost (proven to be not that "much", but it is still an ongoing cost to keep the game running). they added so many possible way to obtain new items and you are here complaining a few cash shop item and call them money grabbing? comparing them to areia game, gpotato, and the rest of the shit mmo company, the cost to obtain new item in gw2 are nothing.

Hmm... 2 million copies sold $60 a pop... $120 million... that should run a company for quite a while if they focused on fixing the broken stuff first and added the money grabbing store later.

and lastly all mmorpg are designed to cater for the majority of players, not those few loser who plays 1-2 hour a day accomplishes nothing, and blaming anet for gold are hard to make and cannot  buy gem with gold for new items, and demanding cool item to be handed out free, now gtfo and back in your hole.

Did the definition of loser change? I would consider the MMORPGer living in his mom's basement playing games 8+ hours a day a loser not someone who works for a living or goes to school and only has a few hours a day to "play".

I was one of the people looking forward to GW2. I prepurchased from Gamestop long before the official pre-order even opened. After playing about a month I left. I still check up on Guru and my Guild's site to see if/when improvements have been made to bring me back. I feel screwed out of $120 (me and my wife), for a game that nosedived. I don't see why people even play now, but if they enjoy it... I have nothing bad to say about them. I was all in through all the BWE and excited to play, then it got stale for me and focus on the cash shop over the core of the game drove me off. I still have hopes things will get better, if they do I'll be back. To me, all the currently running MMOs are stale or garbage to begin with, but GW2 has the most potential to be a great game and grab the #1 spot.

Actually, it's buy to play.  I spent $60 on a copy for myself, $60 on a copy for a family member and $40 on bank space and character slots.

I draw the line at spending real money to buy in game currency, I think the trend really lowers the quality of MMOs as a whole.

Know why Anet can get away with pretty much whatever it wants right now?  It has very little competition from anything except one very badly aging game.  Guild Wars 2 is a superior product, head and shoulders above everything else out there right now.  It's not surprising that they're free to do what they like as far as their cash shop.  Pray it doesn't get worse.  Better yet, pray for some competition.

Like ESO?

no it is not. Your argument is false. Your car needs tires to run. You do not NEED any of these cosmetic items.What Anet is doing is basically they sell you a car with a regular color like black or white, then they offer to sell you some customized paint jobs like rainbow and I don't know, batman themed paint jobs etc. You do not NEED a rainbow coloured car, you do not NEED a batman themed car, you NEED a car that runs. And the car runs fine with a few scuff marks and scratches that they are polishing everyday and things like.

I am all for constructive criticism. Things like improving the drops from big events like the dragon events. Improving some of the cheesy dialogue. Adding more explanation in certain parts of the PS so that it makes more sense for non-sylvari players etc. But what you are doing is complaining over something that they have publicly stated multiple times over and over long before launch or even pre-purchased opened up.

I think you missed this part "And I don't have a problem with what the cash shop is as much as what it looks to be becoming. They seem to be trending to nerf the game in favor of selling more CS stuff."
