Sorry but I have to rant to the nay sayers of GW2

            For the last week I have been seeing more and more post about endgame and PvP issues and the fact that the game will not have any power gear as I call it.

So I now feel it is my time to get my two cents in on the debate.

1) ENDGAME

            ArenaNet has made it perfectly clear that the Dynamic Event system is the endgame for PvE. So the moment you participate in one you are doing the end game. They have also clearly stated that you can go back to the very first area you started in and do those DEs again or others in the area that someone may have stumbled upon after you moved on to another area. Your level is decrease thus the DE will be a challenge and thus fun.
 

            As you get into Orr you will find that the DE system has turned not into a line of events but a web per Colin Johanson, thus making it where there well be things discovered over months. And months may I add is how an MMO should be played. Not in days. Console games are made to be played in days.

2) PvP
 
             Again the moment you log in for the first time, if you so desire, you can go PvP. From what I have read since I am not that into PvP myself. It will be something that will be fun and exciting for those that do it. You will have to use your head and plan defenses and attacks. Gone are the zerg days and that is great to know IMO. I might even think about trying it out again. I have done PvP in DAoC and Warhammer, and to be honest I found Warhammer more interesting. Elements from Warhammer per my understanding can be found and refined here.
 


3) Power Gear.
 
            All I can say about power gear is that they were usually found on the player with the most free time and the least maturity. I am glad that those at ArenaNet had the wisdom to finally tell these folks, which is a proven fact to be the minority of those playing MMOs, to learn how to play a game right.
            How do you play a game right. With your brain, which you actually have to use for this game. Gone are the days that a power gear griefer can go around PKing just because to that person it is fun. Now those people that don't have tons of time but have the intelligence and skill to play their character wisely will start to shine.  While those with no skill will either have to learn how to have skill or leave.
 


            My final point. Bye bye power gamers or console players as I like to call them. I am so glad you will hate this game. I will relish the fact that I don't have to hear you whining in general chat after a week of playing the game and maxing your toon that you have nothing to do. If that is what you say in this game you have not attempted to learn how to play it or how it is designed to work. Bye Bye to those that loved to go around killing just for killing sake due to the fact that you had the most powerful sword in the game. You will see that it take more then to swing said sword in this game. And for that, thank you ArenaNet.
