In Topic: Cosmetic Reward is not the best carrot for an MMO

02 February 2013 - 01:39 PM

I absolutely agree. Cosmetic rewards are not enough at all. As things are right now, there's absolutely no incentive to play this game at all. There's no rewards that justify the time spent playing. ArenaNet completely missed the point when they tried to be different with their game which cost them a fortune. Appealing to a very tiny, niche crowd can only get you so far. Adding Ascended gear was the very first step in the right direction but not making a full set of it available from the start is where they went wrong. There needs to be an everlasting supply of newer, better gear in an MMORPG, otherwise it will fail for trying to divert from a successful formula. The vast majority, the core playerbase of GW2, badly wants more gear progression and a proper treadmill along with a ton of mounts. This is what will please us, what will ensure a huge, steady income for ArenaNet.

In Topic: Why do people want mounts?

Mounts are a great way to show off and a staple in every single MMORPG that was ever considered successful. If ArenaNet are smart they will implement mounts as quickly as possible. Matter of fact, all critically acclaimed MMORPGs have mounts. Very flashy ones at that which really make you stand out in a crowd. Every single player passing by will undoubtly take a look at you and your massive status symbol. Players will gasp in awe and go green with envy staring at your materialized heroic deed. A dream come true for the vast majority of MMORPG players. Guild Wars 2, a completely dull, boring and stale game, badly needs mounts if it ever wants to garner a larger playerbase and break free from its current anabiotic state. Fact is, only a very tiny niche crowd is against mounts while the vast majority badly wants them and considering how fickle ArenaNet is on these things, mounts on both land and air are a certain thing to come in a very, very near future. They listened to us on the vertical progression matter and they will, without a shred of doubt, listen to us, the majority, once again.

Because mounts are in WoW and any other MMORPG that is viewed upon as the pinnacle of game design in terms of both content and gameplay. They want mounts so they can show everyone how absolutely amazing and awesome they are for having such a unique status symbol. These same people also love nothing more than standing around a main city with their oversized snowflake item so that everyone has to gaze upon their treasured atrocity whether they want to or not. They love to be in the spotlight and the desire of wanting something that further improves their imaginary wealth comes naturally.

ANet talking about worrying that the economy will be broken while precursors are all 350+ gold and things like charged lodestones are 3+ gold a pop.

May I note you reacted just the same to another person?
Horus Moonlight said "Half the stuff" not all of it. I also nowhere said that I think all of this will absolutely be implented into the game. At least I think that's the response you're talking about.
