At least they sent me an email thanking me for letting them take my money before the cash shop is done.

I'm with you on that. The only real danger is the potential abuses. I trust Anet but not Ncsoft. And just last week there was an uproar because NCsoft east put in a "boss" drop weapon in the cash shop. We as a community need to get out the pitchforks over things like this. Cause when we don't, they will only take the nexxt step.

When have gamers ever acted as a community? Do you really believe that there will be a point where gamers will act outside of their immediate desires and even more of a stretch toward principles that they don't even share? Laughable...

EA and BW might disagree with you on that one. I'm sure they will love to send you a cupcake.

Oh, I see, so have either of them bolted the doors and closed up shop, have they both agreed that the way business was done was awful and promised to start anew, or are they just going to do whatever makes money and continue on as if nothing ever happened? The cupcake display is meaningless as it doesn't stop anyone from buying their games.

This whinning is getting to the point, where I don't think Anet can do any right to some of these people. The saddest thing is some of these posters are grilling Anet for almost nothing, yet their post history shows them posting support in one of the threads for a game made by a company with an actual history of screwing over their players. Kinda funny, in a very sad sorta way.

Agreed, particularly those that insist that all forms of cash Shop are P2W

Oh, you mean like NCSoft, oh... wait...

This topic again, really?...

 

League of Legends, a F2P MOBA, had 32 million people playing it 4 months ago... I'm going to guess its closer to 40 million by now. League of Legends has a cash shop, where you buy Champions, Skins and Boosts to increase XP or IP gain per match, but you never have to invest any money into it if you dont want to, yet I'd wager a majority of those 40 million people at least buy a champion or two with real money, I don't see people calling that game Pay 2 Win.

 

So.... how is GW2 pay to win again? Oh... right, the XP boosts.

Because we all know how important levels in GW2 are, and how reaching level 80 before other people is paramount to being succesful. /sarcasm  d-_-b

 

By that logic, Anyone deciding to start playing any mmo already released is at a disadvantage.

i dont understand why people are complaining and have a problem over my choice of freedom

 

No one forced you to pre purchase .Anet has put forward there business plan plain and simple.

This is not some shady company who eants to make a quick buck and flee away.

We have played GW1 and there expansions I knwo hoe there cash shop works and how committed teh devs are towards there games..

 

I dont have any problem in buying in this game and neither in there cash shop. As long as there is no monthly sub its my choice totally when to play when to not , when to buy cash items when to not.

 

If someone where to tell me that thsi games is unplayeable without gems then I would understand

 The cash shop will never be done. It can be changed at any time in the future for better or  for worse. It's always going to be a leap of faith that Arenanet won't muck up their game. No conspiracy theories required.

Lol I should think its GW1 and GW2 fanboys turn to get trolled :) .

People really trying their best to post negatives at GW2 cos they know all their friends and families are going to play GW2.

And that is the truth.

Funny, the OP only posted once in his own topic and not participating in the debate. Not like it would matter since hes been misinformed. All the leaked shop pics show that there are no P2W items. Also I havent caught ANet lying or being crafty on any topic. Everything they said has showed truth, therefore I believe there statement that they dont want P2W items in there shop. And yes, I prepurchased because they have shown nothing, but honesty.

Yes, an average person starting on a server at a later date than an average person starting at an earlier date, is indeed at disadvantage. However, that is a disadvantage we accept.

I applaud your cynicism but you need to take it to the next step. PR for a company is a high priced commodity, EA and BW will be paying through the nose now for their past "exploits". The cash shop model is here to stay, you might as well accept that right now or you will be even more disspointed from here on in. NCsoft will make attempts at exploiting the cash shop, but they will weight that risk against the cost benefits, and the more damaged their reputation and or product is from the consumers reaction, the less likely they will take that next gamble.

 

The cupcake, plus the recent poo award, were a PR nightmare for EA. It won't shut them down, but they will be spending a lot of cash to try to rebuild their image. Just like NCsoft was testing the waters with the cash shop items in the GW2 beta, as soon as they saw the uproar, the pulled some of those items real quick. Not because they wouldnt make money, but becasue the costs to reputation and future sales would diminish those returns.

NcSoft is more then just the publisher, they own ANet and thus can force them to do whatever they want.

They would get less profits though ;>

I'm just glad they are catering to people like me rather than people like you.  I have no sympathy for your sad attachment to an archaic business model.  Luckily for you, there are still many games willing to charge you a mothly tithe for the privilege of their service.  Go to them.  You and your wallet will be most welcome.
