In Topic: After playing GW2, I decided I'd prefer a sub fee over any cash shop

Economists =/= Bankers..

You're correct, but most mainstream economists still use the John Maynard Keynes theory of economics (advocating central banking influence in the free market, basically), which built up the economic policy framework for the bankers over the last 100 or so years. So fundamentally, both economists and bankers are to blame for the Crash of '08 and resulting depression.

But anyway, this isn't a political-economic forum. I've never spent a penny in GW2's CS, mainly for the reasons outlined by Kymeric. The CS needs more interesting skins for weapons and armour, and other miscellaneous cosmetic and fun items. We certainly don't want anything that moves towards a P2Win scenario. Right now though, the CS content is pretty weak and isn't making me want to part with my cash. Then again, GW2's game content is pretty weak and isn't making me want to part with my time right now, either; but that's another story...

It all depends what you're looking for; this week I've been running with an organised WvW guild called [IRON], and it's been good fun even though Desolation is bottom of the tier 1 pile. Hell, I even got to slaughter Archaos, the guild leader of RUIN, the other day, which was pretty damned satisfying. It's not all about winning; I was just looking for a more organised and more competitive WvW experience. Maybe it has improved on FS recently, but I'm quite happy where I am now thanks.

Seems like you joined the winning server too late. Are you going to join Blacktide now?

With hindsight, I should've studied where the top WvW guilds were going better than I did. As for RUIN, I agree their ethic was pretty poor from the start and I don't particularly care where they go or what they do. I was just fed up with being on server with no night coverage when I'm primarily a night-time player myself (and I'm from the UK, before you accuse me of being an "American scumbag" or some such nonsense). Even without RUIN, Desolation still has much better night coverage than the 7 players I managed to scrounge up from all 4 WvW maps a few days back on Far Shiverpeaks at 3am or so; it was pathetic and that was the final straw for me.

As far as I can see, RUIN is still here; there are a few of them right now in LA and there's been no mention on their website or anywhere else I can find that they've abandoned the server.

Last night's WvW was the best night yet, In Augry Rock BL Kodash had a 40 member + turtle going. It was very well organised and alot of fun to go against. I got 50+ badges in a hours time. Cheers to the commander that was running that tactic on kodash.

Good to hear Far Shiverpeaks are actually getting something out of WvW, but I have to say I moved to Desolation yesterday and the WvW here is a different class in terms of both organisation and numbers. Even though we are getting owned heavily by Blacktide (who ironically have all the old Far Shiverpeaks WvW guilds from the Disorder League).
