In one thread, people say that hardly anyone in WoW actually raids.It's the point that most players point at raiding as the pinnacle of endgame on WoW, if you disregard the PvP point of the game, it ends up in raiding on the very last end of content, if you take into account PvP... well it's a totally different story.
In another thread - when it suits the topic - people say that the entire game revolves around raiding and suggest that's all anyone does, day in day out.
If you disregard raids in WoW, you can do PvP. Or 5-mans. Or finish all your quests. Or gather mats. Or do some crafting. Or play on the auction house. Or any number of things. In other words, the same things - with different presentation methods - that you do in GW2. And no one holds a gun to your head and makes you raid in WoW. Some people are perfectly happy playing it any way they want.
Yeah, GW2's gameplay - or more specifically, the potential I see in it - is the only thing that keeps me coming back. It really is good, and has a lot more that it can bring to the table.I couldn't last two days of MoP, missed GW2s gameplay so got a refund from blizzard of MoP.
Well, that and the fact that my wife would skin me if I brought up dropping another MMO so soon.
