In Topic: Interview with GW2 Dungeon Designer Robert Hrouda by Guild Wars Insider

I believe this was more directed at the offical forums rather then GW2Guru. I'm pretty sure most would agree that any official forum for a game is not a good barometer by which to judge a game.

Yep Diminishing Returns is the worst thing in mmo history, it just stops players doing what they want to do and forces them to go do something else..

This is an interesting point, especially considering some of the other replies in this thread regarding MMO longevity in general. Without DR in place (I'm thinking dungeon tokens here as well as mat farming), how quickly would people blow through current content? I think DR is just another form of content gating desgined to keep people playing. The amount of time, resources and effort required to add content to a game compared to how quickly this content is consumed by the playerbase seems to be at opposite ends of the spectrum. It's analogous to a movie in that it may take several years for the movie to be created/released and yet it is consumed by the public in a matter of a few hours.

Let's say ArenaNet removed DR completely. Wouldn't that just increase the supply drastically (thus lowering the costs overall) while keeping the demand at current levels? I'm not sure if this would be a good thing or a bad thing...

Just to debate this point here, but skins in this game are not really optional. They are the endgame. I mean once you get rare level gear you can actually do any dungeon you want except for high level FOTM, so max stats are not a necessity. The carrot in this game is the skins, so it's not optional.

Cosmetic rewards don't bar you from any of the game's content in any way, shape or form unless you roleplay or something.

Just to clarify, by stating that cosmetic rewards are not optional you are inferring they are required in some way.

In Topic: When will GW2 get real PvP?

18 January 2013 - 06:36 PM

I followed GW2 development for about a year prior to it's release (I know some people followed for much longer). I'm not sure I ever read anything where they stated there would be more modes other than Conquest & WvW (correct me if I'm wrong).

It seems a lot of the complaints about the current system are for modes that were never mentioned as being part of GW2 PvP in the first place.
