I feel with the right execution the Living Stories could be quite amazing. I haven't played GW2 for about a year, and honestly I'm extremely surprised this is all they do. Or maybe I'm just used to the old Anet releasing content at minimum every 6 months for GW1 until EoTN.
It's not players changing the world, it's just a giant scripted Dynamic Event that always wins. Having it go in many directions, evolving the story (forgetting they already butchered the GW1 lore and have this sorry excuse for a story) in a very dynamic way that an expansion could never reach.
For example, take a look at League of Legends they at times have "wars" and players vote for their faction alliance. Winning alliance gets a little icon. It's very simple, but if ANet doesn't plan on releasing any actual new meaty content...doing what LoL does but on an actual content scale with story would honestly be rather brilliant.
But here I am, reading patch notes, and I see they finally get rid of armor repairs even though many of us here pre-release told them with pages of good reasoning why it's a bad idea. Just something as simple as that. Maybe in 2 more years there will be a meaningful content patch.
