This right here is the BEST post in Tyrian Assembly. A lot of people need to sit down, shut up, read this post and think before they type.
That post goes both ways. I'm more than willing to sit down and think. Yes, I agree that the infusion is questionable. No, I don't think it was necessary to improve the stats on Ascended items. I am willing to hold my tongue until something, IE the patch itself, to make judgments. But, those that complain need also to heed this advice. Don't just say, "THEY LIED TO ME" and point at comments made early in development. What about the comments Anet made revising their stance, and their explanations for doing so? Don't just say, "ANET IS RUINING THE GAME" without first playing the content to objectively point out why the game was ruined. When the patch does come out tomorrow, and it turns out Anet utterly and completely destroyed the game as it was meant to be, hey, I'll be here complaining to. Until then, I'll reserve my judgment and say that the game Anet has released has provided me with hours of entertainment, and I'll be playing for the foreseeable future.
