In Topic: Is GW2 dead now or is it just the forums?

I disagree.  There are some really nice things happening in Diablo 3.  It took a while, but the game is enjoyable and they appear to be listening to the community and addressing issues pretty nicely.
The lead dev who took over for Jay Wilson already expressed that he understood they needed to make Diablo 3 more like Diablo 2, even before Wilson was pulled from his position.

I wouldn't give them much credit for totally dropping the ball on D3, only to scramble to reintroduce as many elements of Diablo 2 as they could.

I haven't, and won't, pick up the D3 expansion, but a friend of mine who did would agree with you that it's moved in a positive direction.

I honestly think they hit this "Y" in the road, where they asked:  "Do we let WoW die or do we remake the game each expansion to stay updated with the competition?"  They chose to keep pushing WoW.  Which is all fine an dandy, but that "space" has gotten stale, as anyone can see and thus why we are posting this on a fansite of a competitor's game.
Which makes sense, given that the original D3 team wanted to make it an MMO, to which Blizzard said no and let all that talent leave for fear of disturbing their precious baby, WoW.

ANet is failing to do one crucial business step here and that is to realize that their competition, who now has 7 million monthly paid subs
WoW isn't their competition. Their competition is the dozens of other MMOs that aren't WoW. WoW embodies the "come for an expansion, leave until the next" mentality better than any other MMO.

Maybe there is a more selective demographic that they are actually reaching, but i dunno.
I would assume they're targeting the same small population of whales who will mindlessly spend cash on in-game items that every other F2P or online B2P title out there is chasing.

There are similar threads on the official forums (I haven't been getting involved on reddit) - however, the official forums are also a lot quieter than they were a year or so ago. There's just... not as much to discuss, really.
The official forums are, or at least were, heavily moderated to quell anything approaching "negative" discussion, even if that discussion could have led to positive improvements in the game.

The time of MMOs is "over" for now, I guess.
Whiteknighting and marketing-department-governed moderation really took its toll.

and the sad part that company will probably be blizzard.
Not without hiring a whole new generation of developers; all of the talent that made Blizzard is gone.

No, they were too eshausted from publishing casual amateur level crap like Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm, so they had to cancel their totally awesome "next gen" MMO Titan. The fate considers you my friend.
More like they realized Titan was shaping up to be complete garbage, and that their developers can't tackle anything more ambitious than Hearthstone or HotS. They're basically done as a developing studio.

It's amusing reading through this and recalling that I used to tank on my warrior. It absolutely required a good elementalist, but it was definitely possible.

In school we learned what a critique is.  A good critique is one that gives examples of problems and then possible solutions.  However you can hardly say that threads like this one are intended to help fix any problems since there are no solutions given or even good examples of solutions. It's basically a rant, and these rants just keep happening over and over.
My experience has been that devs will actually listen to rants, whereas suggestions are outright ignored.
