I see a lot of hate and bashing against Guild Wars 2, especially on these forums as of late. I can only speculate that it is because Guild Wars 2 just barely came out, and there has been, and continues to be a lot of hype surrounding the game. If you read any one of the many bashing threads against Guild Wars 2, you may notice a common thread among them like I found.
MMO players who play "their MMO game" are just plain fearful of the success of another company. They lash out to make themselves feel better about playing the game they always played. They are afraid of change.
Many, if not all the hate posts directed toward GW2 should be taken with a grain of salt. The game is by far, one of the most entertaining games ever created. Yes this is my opinion. But my sneaking suspicion of the haters is they havent even tried it and are just bashing it to try to scare people to keep people playing the game they play.
Also to any GW2 haters who try to derail this thread: Go pack salt.
