    Yeah I don't think it's fair that in order to have every class on one account you need to shell out for slots.

    Should just be 9 by default and more slots should be for alts.

    The expansions with all the trees really threw me off, a truly HORRIBLE map to traverse, which is crazy since the original game does that so well, add to that the silly grindy new levels they made. Also find the group content to be very very MEH. Think the game should have had the holy trinity from the getgo.

    Whatever happened to the reward of simply having fun (whether that's with this game or any other MMO, or game in general).

    Or be like me, having all the classes at 80, only to have HoT come out and not be able to play Revenant at all due to no slots available (which they rectified before that xpac came out). Pretty sure I wouldn't have picked it up had they not done that.

    I liked Guild Wars 2 well enough, but the story never completely hooked me, so I never got a character higher than the 40s. My problem is that every piece of additional content they've put out seems to be for max level play. So while I like the idea of the new specializations, and some look really cool, the idea of having to level all the way just to enjoy it is off putting to me.

    I don't know, when did MMO developers forget what fun is?

    The game just never sticks with me over the long term, though there's an almost absurd amount of 'stuff' to do if you want to invest the time.

    I will tend to pick it up, play my face off for a week or 2, and then just stop for no apparent reason. It's nice that the game allows for that I suppose, but the bones of the game just don't have what I'm looking for I suppose. Combat tends to feel pretty generic, the lack of really defined roles has its downside as well. I will give credit where it's due... even though this isn't a truly open world game, the zones are some of the best I've seen in an MMO.

    It was always an illusion. After 2 months of classic, every one figured it out...

    Because it's just not Guild Wars to me. It has the name but they fundamentally changed the game from the ground up. Guild Wars 1 with the mission style dungeons/questing was amazing and fun to play. I use to love watching pvp matches in the hall of champions or whatever or participating myself. I don't know the game just doesn't feel the same to me. I've tried so hard to make it a main mmo but it's just better off being something you log into once in a while and log off for months.

    Even though WoW has been adopting elements from GW2 since GW2 was launched?

    The games blessing and curse. There is so much to do that many lose focus and lose interest. Theres no pressure to get anything done , not to what you should be doing, no current tier to really catch up to.

    First I've heard of it - are you sure? WoW would be getting shit if that were true

    Because people either like the adaptions, hate them (see reasons why people like Legion), or pretend that Blizzard has come with the ideas on their own. Not really worth listing all the adaptions but open world WoW becomes more and GW2 like every feature patch.

    The fact I had to fork out so much money for the game, and then they made it free. I'm still bitter about that part. Also, I've got no time, and the main interest in the game for me was Personal Story that they transformed into a world events called Living Story.

    When they saw the shit people will put up with as long as they get to play and experience it together.

    I feel like there's no real progression, past the wardrobe system there's really not much to work for, there's no better gear, you won't increase in power, the only progression system is "you just unlocked x ability to do/go y" and that's it, started to feel more like a chore, not "cool what am i going to do today in guild wars 2!" but more like "Right, gotta do fractals, tequatl, some dungeon paths.." etc.

    I know the same sort of thing could be said for WoW, but i just always seem to be able to find something new to pass the time with in WoW and feel like I'm accomplishing something, I rarely got that feeling in GW2.

    GW2 always felt sadly tragic to me. It had some amazing ideas and to this day has some mechanics that NEED to be integrated into other MMOs (riding Raptors is an absolute blast) but at the end of the day felt like just that. A collection of good ideas. There felt like no real cohesion between a lot of these good ideas and a hell of a lot of rough patches between them.

    The universe and writing would by my biggest gripe (some spoilers to follow). Cities feel one dimensional and lifeless and while there is some really nice zones, there is also a hell of a lot of other ones that feel like copy/paste jobs with a different shade of brown thrown on them. The writing was equally lousy. I had hopes for the story this expansion improving matters but it fell flat within about two hours of starting. Other characters of the Dragon's Watch seem to serve no real purpose other than create screw up after screw up for you to clean up. The only real element I felt for was the sacrifice of Vlast which later just made me angry because the whole resurgence of Balthazar in the first place was once again due to yet another mindblowing act of stupidity from my party (in this case, Rytlock). So glad you got your stupid looking sword back though.

    It really doesn't pick up from there and once again the Commander is left to be a glorified babysitter. Living World Season 4 improves things a little but it still falls short of WoW's writing (which is nothing that amazing to begin with but their world building blows GW2 away) and not even on the same page of something like FF14.

    Other sticking points would be PvP. Oh hell, what a dumpster fire all avenues of that became.

    Would love to come back, but sadly the game doesn't let me resett my password and I don't know my character names anymore as I haven't played for years.
