You also need to learn what "gated" actually means. No content in this game is currently gated by much of anything at all, especially not fractals. Gating means you cant run or see the content at all with out attaining certain criteria. Every different instance of the fractal dungeon can be experienced and played through with out any agony at all. In addition you can "repeat" this content (meaning you have seen and done it all with no gating mechanics at all) up to level 10 before some agony is required to repeat what you have already done, seen and experienced more than you already have..
besides the point of this thread is selling laurels in the shop which in my opinion is ridiculous Why have levels? the OP who supports this move probably wants a completely different style of game where you just log in at max level and play.. but that's not a MMO nor is it what Anet designed this game to do so he should probably just concentrate of finding his happiness in another game.
