In Topic: The Gem Store Survey In Five Seconds - The Statistical Conclusion

27 June 2013 - 01:35 AM

And to this day I'm still amazed at how many people actually buy gems with real money, me personally would never drop such an amount for virtual goods, after seeing where they're going with the game I'm always less inclined to support them, whether I need a character slot or a simple transmutation crystal I'd rather grind game money than paying real money.

In Topic: Do you still play GW2, and why?

27 June 2013 - 01:14 AM

Still playing here *partially*. I spend most of the time in LA afk while doing something else outside the game, I'm a PvE'er at heart and as many people know by now it's very repetitive and there isn't a great variety.

The only thing that keeps me logging is the carrot for the legendary, once I get it I'm not sure what I'll do next. Also Path of Exile is almost out of beta, that surely will be a good time killer. With the way ANet is handling things I know I won't be buying any expansions if they stay like this.


EDIT: Agreed with fireshade, real permanent content sort of GW1's Sorrow's Furnace or Elona's Domain of Anguish would definitely bring the game a bit back on it's feet.

In Topic: A bit disappointed in ArenaNet

27 June 2013 - 12:15 AM

If this was my thread I'd name it "Hugely disappointed in ArenaNet". As a hardcore GW1 player, GW2 sucks down straight. I consider these living stories as money making schemes, every new story comes with a new grind, lottery chests and the usual tricks, just to be removed a few weeks later.

ANet has been focusing on quantity (of money in their bank) over quality of content for their players. Squirrel nailed it, this isn't the same ANet players once knew, people still believing that are living an illusion. Looking at the way they're treating players I see no good reason to give them money after buying the game. They're merely milking the cow to keep up the money coming till they release the expansion pack.

As soon as Path of Exile goes out of beta I doubt I'll log in GW2 so often, all I do is stand in LA eitherway.

I'm here to ask you a question. is it worth it to keep investing in GW2?

GW2 has evolved to be a game built around the cash shop. Everything in the future will be about limited time shiny skins and RNG with RM.

It was worth it for the first 2 months but in it's current state It no longer is, GW2 is always going one step towards the just "another F2P game" road and a 60$ price tag.

ANet has become too greedy, always focusing on the cash shop and gives little to no attention to the rest of the game. Sometimes they throw a bone (I'm looking at you Living Story) just to take it away a few weeks later, all being their strategy to make money.

Small Comparison of GW1 and GW2:

GW1: Rollerbeetle Racing GW2: Money Sinking Moas.
GW1: Dungeons With Rare Drops GW2: Mystic Toilet (aka RNG, Aka Casino, Aka Grind)
GW1: Permanent content, DoA, Grenths Footprint   GW2: Time bombed events and dungeons with rare    drops that inflate after the show ends.
GW1: Cash shop with no RNG.   GW2: RNG Boxes, RNG Boxes and even more RNG boxes.

And I have played more Skyrim than I have played Guild Wars 2. So yeah, I really get what you're saying.

Glad I'm not alone on that, in fact I'm about to buy the legendary edition and with Witcher 3 coming out I'm not sure how much I'll be around GW2.

I tried to ignore the game's many faults but this dragon bash event was the last straw, I never gave ANet my money except to buy the game itself, they won't see another another cent from me until they change their methods, that includes further expansion packs.

Vote with your wallet, once they see lack of profit they might change their ways.
