The more i read all these topics, the more i realize the vast majority of people on these forums are hugely negative. I question why the people here still play if they are so unhappy. I have been playing this game since beta and i and for the first time ready to stop going to this website, as its is just a bunch of unhappy men ages 30-40 who seem to only be happy when they are unhappy. GW2GURU, i'm sorry but i cannot see any reason to keep checking in with you and i will either just use gw2 forums, or try and find any group of people that are happier then this sad sack of potatoes here. GL with all the unhappiness all .
Once again, more posts not actually discussing the topic of this thread (the negativity on these forums) or the content of the game, but instead going off topic discussing the cash shop agenda, the evilness of A.net, or the bugginess of the game... or something.
I used to be able to come here for stuff that I now have to go to Dulfy for. Guides, screenshots, discussions of tips, tricks, tactics, the game economy, etc. People who make that sort of content no longer post here. I go elsewhere for that now.

well that sucks. Could this be because NCsoft is taking over ANET???
No! People leave, moved, pushed out, laid off and its none our business to know why he left or laid off on what terms. We need to stop all these conspiracy theories to know why he left. Just leave him alone and let him live his life, yes, he has been laid off but this isnt news and none our business to begin with! >.> Yes,it's sad to see him go but life goes on!
Yes you're misunderstanding quite badly. I don't want things asap, I want to get things without having to play every day. The current method of Laurels requires you to log in and play for a bit every day. I'd much rather a system where you could get them by playing the game when you wanted to. So instead of logging in for half an hour every day, I could log in 2 or 3 hours for a couple of days on say the weekend, and get the same reward.
It's the fact we have to log in every single day to get this reward. It goes against the casual theme this game once had.
I also think your other points are wrong. it isn't confirmed that achievements will give Laurels, in fact Anet have stated they may have a different reward system. Google the quote but I'm sure it's been posted already. Secondly, many people consider having the best stats as required, especially if you are competitive WvWer, and the Laurels have the ascended amulet. You may not care about WvW or being competitive but many other people do.
Not really. If say you want an ascended amulet, forgot how much it costs, think 35 laurels? might be wrong but for the sake of argument lets say 35 laurels. You dont need to play everyday, you need to either play for either 35 days, can be any 35 days dont have to be consequitive or for 25 days (provided you also complete the monthly) or even for 15 days (provided you finish the monthly and spread it over 2 months) or even for just 5 days provided you spread it across 3 months and in 3 of those 5 days you take the time to finish of the monthly. It will be more relaxed if you spread it over 6 months instead of 3. If you're not concerned with timing its fairly relaxed.
if you just play weekends provided you finish of monthlies as well you can get that 35 laurel item in 2 months.
For your statement to be true you either want to get whatever you're after in the least possible time. IE in this case it would be unacceptable for you to wait more then 25 days to aquire this item or if laurels resetted back to 0 if you missed a single day.
But then you're coming back to the original premise if your issue with the dailies is you have to get the amulet because you feel without it you're not competitive in WvW the problem is you feel you have to aquire it in the least amount of time possible and not that you're forced to log on every single day.
