In Topic: After playing GW2, I decided I'd prefer a sub fee over any cash shop

And then in a sub based MMO you pay upfront, and have to dump an unjustifiably large sum of money on the game every month just to be aloud access to play the game you bought, and in certain cases they also try to nickle and dime you(I'm looking at you WoW, but other games, such as The Secret World, do it too).

And people's problem with a sub fee isn't that "it's so hard to unsub and resub", its that the general sub fee of 15$ a month that is forced on you just to access the game, often on top of the box price, can be pretty pricey especially in the long run. Paying for a year adds up to 180$, did you really get a 180$ experience out of that game? (roughly 180, depending on box price and discount from buying multiple months at a time)Depends how you look at it of course, 15 dollars a month for something you enjoy and spend a lot of time on is certainly good. But 15 dollars a month for the actually content and frequency of updates you are getting generally isn't.

Hey now, I just told you I don't mind it. There's nothing you can say that will change that with me. It's cheap ass entertainment. Some games like DDO you have to have a PHD to figure out how to work around not subbing and maximizing $$$, please just give me everything for $15, thank you. I will say since FTP has made a hold, that yes even in sub games they now want that cash shop to, that indeed does suck. I know one thing, if everyone was like me, there wouldn't be FTP because there just isn't any money in it because I'm very tight on buying virtual gimmicks. But there are people with loads of cash that obviously feeds these companies for crapola. I never get caught up in that, you could be wearing a million dollars in virtual swag, I won't even notice and if I did, I'd care even less.

OP is spot on. The genius part of it is they got us to pay $60 for a FTP game, where as the other FTP's you pay nothing upfront and get nickle dime'd. GW's 2 is already $60 ahead of the curve plus hopes to nickle/dime. The player in either case gets to determine how much a sap they are. A true FTP, I usually go $10/20'ish on those to get proper Inv space and trading options.

There other game GW1 didn't even start with a cash shop, so I overall preferred that. But I don't mind a sub, it's easy to cancel and start again, seems like so many people find that it takes too much time, reading their whines over it.

Then tell me what most Level 80's are doing when they PvE? Is that not the state of the game currently?

Still zero, but I do plan on spending 10x that this Christmas.

Water exploration is amazing.
Water combat is utter shit.

This.

Water combat in video games is the equivalent to jumping sharks in a tv series.

I give them a +.5 as the exploration is at least fun. Most games get nothing right with water levels.

Also if you don't believe me, ask Kevin Costner! lol
