Think of it this way, it took them 6+ years to make GW2.  Take of 2 years for the engine and development of pre-concepts, meaning it took them 4 years to make the launch offering.  No surprise expansions are rarely large.

Funnily enough, around release they said that they build up the core and could now easily expand upon it in terms of new areas.

I never liked the GW1 community, there was too much elitism everywhere.

It was so-so. It depended on where you went (and still depends). Back in the days I never used the wartower community (as a german player) nor guru for example. I chose onlinewelten for a reason. It was a bit smaller but still big enough but had a very nice lead admin and generally really nice people. I don't know, it reminded me a bit of the indiablo com back in 2006 (although nothing will ever reach that kind of awesome community that also is so big). Ingame it was the same. Mission outposts etc. usually had some elitists and but you would usually find nice people. You could find a nice ally with 500+ nice people: Really enough to play everything with. The problem was mostly pugging in elite areas or pvp. But that's always a problem in every game. Elite activities is the location where the elitists are. It's a bit annoying but you can circumvent them pretty effectively.

I think it's a nice "idea". But in the end it gets repetetive pretty fast. As almost always, Anet seems to have the right idea but doesn't think it to the end. Cycling the whole event chain in the same pattern every time is a huge mistake. It shouldn't reset but scale difficulty over time until it resets certain points because players can't hold to them anymore.
I also think that part of me finding it boring after such a short time is that I dislike the GW2 combat. It got more and more boring over time and since every encounter is the same in the combat system, a new map with new encounters doesn't hold anything new in that regard. Making a map focussed on combat is not a wise idea if nothing else speaks for it. But that's a rather personal problem I guess.

Doing NM and then immediately following with HM.
And yeah, JUST spent almost two hours doing the Marketplace quest in HM. <.< It didn't even hit me to try to hide and then pull them one by one: I figured you HAD to take them head on, so I was trying to come up with a way to take some 5 or 6 HM teams at once. Did quite well with a bonder (ran daggers on my rit and I simply tanked all the teams, until one slipped away and killed off my heroes). Then I wiki'ed it and saw that folks suggest you simply hide in a corner.
Managed to do it in the first try after that. <.<

Haha, yeah. When I first did that I believe you couldn't hide because the spwn places were different. Also the AoE of their builds was even stronger than that now. Power of panic, constant flagging while healing pulled through for me in the end. I felt soooooo good afterwards. :D

I remembered that I never did Winds of Change! So now I am running around cleansing places and there's a LOT to do. Not just that, but the content is actually some of the hardest ones I've experienced in GW1: I actually have to flag my heroes again and switch them out or change their builds.

You are still playing in normal mode right? Hard Mode is almost on the level of the first and last Titan Quest HM imho. Allthough WoC got nerfed by quite a bit after it released. I remember how hard some missions were when I played them in hm during released. Had around 20 trials for the one marketplace mission, lol. Good times.
Have fun with it, the story and dialogues will get pretty good after while, it's my favourite story line in GW.
