    GW2 having no subscription makes for the perfect game to just hop on and play whenever you feel like it, sometimes I play for a few days then play wow again. Had some phases where I played a few months regularly (usually when new xpac is released) or a few weeks for new content patches.

    I just finished unlocking my last champion mastery today after playing 1-3 hours a week for the past month and will probably take a break from it until EoD unless something interesting happens in between. I'm not that much into the legendary system, my main character is full ascended and that's good enough for me. Also have all mounts unlocked.

    Game is super fun when you find something to enjoy in it, combat is amazing and really addictive imo.

    GW2 probably has one of the only interesting mount systems in MMO's. They exist for a reason, not just because "every MMO has mounts".
    I'm a mount collector in every MMO I play. It's a shallow and petty reason but seeing people on mounts and knowing I can't get access to them without buying Path of Fire just keeps me from playing.

    Question for people still playing, I stopped playing during PoF and while I enjoy the game I just can't find a hook that isn't exploration and crafting.

    My question being, What has been added since then? I heard the whole GW3 cancellation thing and thats about it. Is it still only PoF content?

    There's a few living stories to do if you havn't done any, however you'd have to buy them if you havn't logged in during the time it was free. They are all pretty decent except for the last wich is Champions in my opinion.

    Currently they are having some episodes of LW S2 for free every week if you don't have them it's worth logging in and going through them. If you don't the mounts it might be something to work towards, they aren't hard to get but it's grindy.

    What is blocking me from playing GW2 or anything from Arena is the woke crowd among their ranks. Is disgusting.

    Its an expansion feature in a B2P tied to the games sense of horizontal progression. The expansions might as well be be standalone games where progression carries over and you're asking them just give you part of it for free. That's not fair.

    I was never really interested in Fashionwars. I think it's a poor excuse for no meaningful content. After getting legendary armor and weapons it made even less sense. POF only kept me interested for a few weeks. I hate the mindless map grinds and the story sucks. I've done all the dungeons and fractals. There's just nothing left to engage in that I haven't done a countless times. PvP isn't too great either, the community is unbelievably bad and toxic at the same time. Other times you just get steamrolled with players who know what they are doing. Isn't that much fun on either side. WvW was a bore-fest from the beginning.

    I'll still check out the new expansion. It's not a bad game and sometimes even really fun.

    Arenanet is probably the least 'woke' studio in the industry. They openly represent many people in a very natural way without asking or calling attention to any of it. Theyve been like that for years. It's not being 'woke' its accurate representation. As it should be.

    Funny people will both call Arenanet toxic/misogynistic or some "SJW" insult because of when they fired Jessica Price. Anet fired a problematic employee and two opposite sides manage to paint themselves as a victim.

    They've been giving away a free episode a week (with some gap weeks) all summer. They are currently in the middle of season 3 (of 5) I think.

    I could understand this if there was a subscription, but it's literally extra content you pay for once and you're done. If you want to collect mounts in a game you want to play, why wouldn't you spend 30 bucks? A WoW expansion costs more than that...

    GW3 wasn't a thing in development. The game always runs on a loop. New story that comes with a map, new skins to get, etc. If you quit during POF then there's probably 2 new raid wings, 3 mounts, 3 living world seasons, a few fractals and strikes (think intro raid bosses) that you haven't seen.

    I played at launch max crafted best stuff I could get. Parked my character outside of the final story boss dungeon or whatever it was at the time and never logged back in. I tried a few months back but the controls the skills / weapons (which is why I won't play a new world) it looked heavily dated and the overall lack of PvE content I was more than glad to uninstall and never consider it again.

    I honestly kinda thought by now they would do a third game. I watched a friend play gw1 I played through 2 I've kinda had my fill if they stay with the same direction. Tab target non gcd locked combat is a big seller to me.

    I'm kind of jealous because they could spend just $30 now and get all 3 expansions and more than half of the content that's in between (free if you long in when it comes out, otherwise you have to pay for it).

    I literally admitted it's a shallow and petty reason, dude.

    I haven't bought a WoW expansion with my own money since Cataclysm. I don't have a proper income due to being disabled so I haven't been able to buy the GW2 expansions. And I also said I acknowledge it's not a great reason but it's still MY reason.

    Primary thing I've had with GW2, after several months, is the combat puts me to sleep.
    I try to get back into it and ZZzzzZzzz.....
    Maybe that's just me?

    I have no such issue with WoW and FF14, for reference.

    That's amazing, thought it was only for S2, it's even better then!

    It also involves a bunch of new achievements (which, per episode, come down to "spend time in the map and replay the story") that culminates in free Legendary amulet and a free gen3 legendary precursor. This particular string of achievements is a permanent addition to the game, no FOMO involved.

    i am lost , dont know where to start , never seem to find new players to share and start to play ^^

    I tried it several times and bought the first 2 xpacs when they were on sale and leveled all my characters to max level then went and bought the 2nd best gear from the auction house and sat there with nothing to do, so I leveled another character and did the same thing with them and then again sat at max level with nothing to do. So I don't know think the game is for me in general since there is no real end game.

    Nothing really. I might give it another try during lulls in my other MMO tbh.
