I'm going to defend her on this one and say that the person who disagreed with her wasn't on topic at all. He was just looking for a fight. Then here you come along and blame her for trying to derail the thread and cause a flame war? Are you that fucking blind? If anything, you should be bitching at Maarius, not Fencers. Stop being a douche and get off his/her case. Same goes for anyone else.

    OT: GW2 is intended to do everything other MMORPGs do, but better.

    I can't speak for ANet but they way I see it - GW2 will attempt to shake the foundation of modern MMOs.

    If they'll suceed? I don't know.

    feel free to discuss these statements if you think the other guys don't get the concept and want them to understand.

    here's mine:
    Anet wants us to be able to play with our friends, whenever we like.

    you should probably just use the phrase "pick up-n-go" instead from now on as it is more concise and does not have the negative stigma attached to the term "casual".

    OT: to finally make a persistent game world where causality and a sense adventure are paramount and to make a game for gamers by gamers that will make them rich in the process, haha.

    Yes well that might be your opinion but regardless you get what you troll for. Anyway the point of the thread was what Anet was aiming for and as far as I'm concerned nobody here has one stinking iota of credibility of what Arenanet's biggest design goals are, except A'net. Speculation is fine but telling one person their opinion does not match Anet's well that's pretty much baseless, and needs to be challenged, thanks for coming out.

As for Fencer's and anyone else playing the emo glass always empty, your choice but do everyone else here a favor and stop pissing on threads that don't match your particular view, thanks for coming out.
    Yes, well my opinion comes from a VERY simple observation. Let me also reiterate that I used to think Fencers was a complete asswipe at one point too. The difference between me and you is that I can see past my nose. You seem like the type to take arguments on a fucking forum board VERY personal. In this you will be quick to call someone a "troll" (very apparent) whenever someone has something bad to say about anything YOU like. You're no better than the 10,000,000 WoW mouth breathing fan boys IMO. Yeah, that's my opinion. Take it or leave it, or quite frankly; fuck off. I'm a huge GW2 fan boy, just like the rest of you bunch, but at least I'm willing to talk with a skeptic when I see one rather than rage at them like a fucking little baby bitch, then dismiss them as a troll.

    Also, since no one here knows ANets design philosophy (lol apparent in their manifesto, asshat), could YOU enlighten us?

    To create a game that is going to shake the foundations of the MMO platform and raise the bar for the genre.

    Meh, stay on topic guys. Just a misunderstanding between Maarius and I. Cleared up. We're on the same page/no harm intended.

    Making those other people in your MMO not a thing to avoid.
