Although i havent played it, there is I believe enough info to form a valid opinion.
To give my opinion on the new WOW xpac..... Ive played enough wow to know MOP is a complete disaster..... I visualized playing it in my head and it was bad.
Alright, settle down. Getting slightly too hostile toward each other here.
Cool it or take it elsewhere.
In all seriousness, good luck to ANet and GW2. Competition is good for any market really.
I found that GW2 really didn't interest me, it didn't hook me. Everything felt so pointless, inconsequential and unpersonal. And that "no grind" promise was quite hillariously broken.
If you don't like WoW anymore, it may be a natural reaction to having played it for 10 years.
You are complaining that you don't have time to play and that Anet should cater to you.
Really don´t understand why you would compare it to WOW. Comparing it to Diablo or COD would be more accurate if you are talking about bragging rights on box sales. Every person who bought WOW vanilla did so with the understanding they would also have to pay $15 per month.
If GW2 had a subscription, it would sell less boxes
If WOW had no subscription, it would sell more boxes.
They really shouldn´t compare it to a game with a subscription, but more to games that are BtP
A debate about World of Warcraft is not useful to this forum. That is what this thread has shamefully turned into now. It's over.
Take up all grievances with the market analysts of the article.
