Prepurchasing anything is a bad move in the gaming world, perhaps even outside of it too. You don't actually know what you're getting.

They are selling the game and the expansion in one, that's alright for me. Fair enough. What is ridiculous is expecting me to be OK with "losing" the account I get with purchasing the expansion because my existing account with override the one I'm getting with the expansion? If I was getting another account, that was separate to the expansion I'd be OK with it. But £32 for a expansion that looks more like a living world story bundle makes me laugh. Oh and there's no character slot either, of course.

I agree.

GW2 is not a "challenging" game in any shape or form. It has some initial complexity when you first get into it but you get over that in a few weeks, months at most. Most of its "difficult" content is considered so because everything up to that point has been more or less of a cake-walk, and we're not physically or mentally prepared to deal with it. I think the majority of the GW2 community agrees that the game lacks challenge but at the same time nobody really expects anything to to change because 1) people fear change and 2) it would probably make farming gold more difficult.

There's also this misconception that challenge = chore = bad. A challenging game doesn't necessarily mean its a chore, its never a chore if you're having fun doing it. I think casuals who are afraid of difficulty probably never played games with the right kind of challenge. A casual game, due to its nature and concept, has to rely on easy but oftentimes repetitive and boring tasks to get you anywhere (where GW2 stands right now)... while a more challenging game can reward you more often because every step you give is a challenge of its own. Get what I'm saying?

I can never enjoy GW2 that much because it isn't challenging enough, I don't get that kind of high I got from PvPing in GW or doing speed clears. That's okay though, I picture GW2 being like a super casual teenage dressup game, and leaving it at that and never, ever thinking of it ever being a challenging or competitive game is more pleasing and easier to accept. No challenge just makes me too bored, and this is coming from someone who plays most games on easy because I am honestly just a bad at games lol.

I haven't been here in a long time, but guru really feels...quiet.

To be fair, for a LONG TIME there was barely anything to talk about besides the same things over and over again.
