Well, i'm 80 and i was wondering the same. I logged this morning asking to myself: k, i cannot finish the game, the final reward is bugged, instead of exotics it gives shitty lv30 trash. K i will finish it later.
Let's do map completition. Oh, it's bugged, i cannot. K maybe i will finish it later.
Uhm, let's do this jumping puzzle... when completed, i made some order on my bag and logged off.
WvW / sPvp? Forget it, i hate zergfest.
Ahh ye, dungeon tokens..
this is the big reason I opted not to buy the game I figured it would have the same fundamental flaws the first one had which is basically nothing to do once you max level.
There should be an "in the middle" option. I've opted to leveling an alt, as currently, PvP isn't keeping me fulfilled. The PvE aspect.... meh.
I guess I'd be enjoying the (pve-) endgame content - if there even was any.
I absolutely hate the Pvp zergfest at the moment. GW1 had a better pvp model imo. Hope they fix this somehow and add some sense to doing dungeons so it'll keep me busy for some longer, 'cause at the moment, I can't tell where GW2 exceeds any retail RPG - the multiplayer aspect just did not deliver until now.
I'm not even near endgame yet and it will most likely take months before I'm there (I only play weekends and take my time to explore everything, as in look-up lore stuff on the wiki etc.). But if I reached endgame and found nothing to do, well I'll just close the game and wait for a content update, there's no pressure. When I finished Monkey Island 2 I wasn't disappointed that there were nothing else to do, I closed the game and looked forward to playing MI3.
Fixed thread title so it looks less trolly.
OT: Eh. I played Guild Wars 1 for years. I know the exact style of game Arena.net makes and got exactly what I was expecting out of the sequel. None of the 4+1 Guild Wars games have an endgame in the popular sense. That expectation is either borrowed or marketing.
Please change the title, the question in the title and the question in the poll are the exact opposite....
I'm sure many people answered the wrong question...
54% enjoys the endgame and 46% thinks that the endgame is not lackluster. Great everyone loves the game.
I have fun casually playing at lv80. I dip into some WvW, ill probably get into some sPvP aswell. Or i go around Frostgorge or Orr getting into the events, because i enjoy them and to get karma/gold to use for getting gear. There are some pretty big events going on. I dont have world completion yet, so i still run around adventure style now and again, or getting into (jumping) puzzles. There are some pretty cool ones, like the ghost pirate in Lion's Arch. Keep finding more and more of these.
Did a few dungeons runs, but i find the design behind them frustrating. And the idea of having to do the same dungeon a dozen times for one single piece of gear. No thanks, boring.
And whenever i feel like not doing anything at lv80, i can still play one of my several alts. I find plenty of stuff to entertain me, at lv80 and before.
I can't fix the poll actually. Or rather, I am not sure how to. Just the thread title. /single tear
Levelling to 80 was fun, but the end game is just one huge boring grind which I won't be doing.
Doing the 5 mans a couple of times is enough for me, they are just boring after that. WvW is ok for a bit, but gets boring fast. Not any skill at all involved in it.
I was hoping Orr was going to be a hard pve area, but it's like everywhere else, a zerg fest.
edit: wtf is up with the poll, I clicked yes... but looking at it now, I should of clicked no...

I know this might seem a bit idiotic - but could you amend the poll question to read the same as the thread title. I read the thread title and then clicked "yes" in response to that rather than the poll question.
Silly mistake, I know, but the thread title is the first thing you read and it sticks in your head for the first few seconds.
But anyway - end game is a bit "meh" - levelling was fun, but I don't want to create another character so soon.
EDIT: Just realised that this has already been mentioned in previous posts. Apologies.

Did you think we had forgotten? Did you think we had forgiven?
I don't think it's lackluster, but it caters to a certain type of people. If you like gear grinds and advancements in stats at max level... you aren't really going to get them unfortunately. If you like to do stuff, and try to do every event, basically you're a completionist, this game has tons of stuff to do.
Lackluster? Not if you PvP, that's always been the strength of this franchise.
The leveling was just icing on the cake and a pleasant surprise for me (although I did encounter a lot of bugged DEs in the higher level zones).

I actually didn't even notice when I hit level cap. I probably got another "level" or two of experience before it hit me that I wasn't getting any more traits. The game is simply fun to play and I have tons left to experience.
