I believe in life before death... So dont forget to enjoy it while you still can.

 
OP  9/16/12 8:40:37 AM#1

Personally i am still convinced that they will start selling more story based content in so called adventure packs, this will be available as DLC.

 

So how many steps should such adventure packs have?

and how much would you be willing to pay for those?

 

(i could see them start with racial stories, explaining much of a races history and such, or  an adventure to find out what happened to the dwarves)

 

 

Oh, and i really love the Anet stories, and instance story play.

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

Don't be simple

9/16/12 8:48:59 AM#2

I think it would depend on if the subject interested me. I would not care how long it is, it only matters about the quality I am recieving. If the purchase nets me a sweet new dungeon to explore with some friends and have fun in, maybe pick up some loot, then I would be willing to pay 5-10 bucks. If there is a whole off shoot story line for my main character to seek out blah blah blah and it is a well developed story I would be willing to pay between 10-20. 

It just matters what they are selling. If they offer me a pack of weapons that now will randomly drop from already existing monsters, I would not buy it because I do not care about that. I want to have fun and explore and play with friend, not find loot.

Not gonna spend dime on any dlc for gw2 - I feel that the box was too pricey as it is $70 with tax - Bleh.

At that price point I don't have any desire to give Anet a dime for at least 3 months.

Not for $70, I usually wait til the games drop to $40-$50 range. GW2 is way too pricey and item shop is a rip off IMO, everything is FAR too expensive. Cosmetic items should be a coupl of bucks tops, at least that's what it's worth to me.

with current prices I don't see me ever spending a cent, Anet has to more than half the prices on most everything.

I prefer if content is sold in big xpacs.

Generally you get higher quality and quantity for the price and avoids splitting the community.

Currently playing: GW2
Cooperative (semi cooperative)board games you should check: Pandemic, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Eldritch Horror, Descent 2.0,Level 7 Omega Protocol, Last Night on Earth

If they do, then we should be able to call them liars without fanboi's saying a word. Just this week the head-honcho said that will not happen. They will be giving out free content as much as any paid sub based game regularly. But yes there will be expansions that will cost. If they go back on it, then it's all on them. But why are you convinced otherwise?

Yes, DLC is unlikely for GW2. It is against their philosophy as it will segregate the players into people who have and don't have and make playing togehter a pain. They have said they will give content away for free regularly and then an xpac later.

There isn't any difference between a DLC and an expansion, unless the expansion is, like GW1, a stand alone game

Worst story I've seen in any MMO (I play only Western MMOs though) so Anet won't get a dime from me. Human story was so bad that I actually had to delete 2 chars because I could not play them any further and wanted to free up my names. Norn and Charr stories have been just garbage so skipping it and going to indicated direction. This is my very personal view of course.

 What are you comparing it to? SWTOR? I don't know what choices you made on your personal story, but GW2 human story has SWTOR beat by a lot. "Worst story in any MMO", give examples of better ones. The choices you made in GW2 vs. all those other better stories. That should provide some interesting reading.

Better one: TSW. Also SWTOR Empire side stories, especially warrior, were much better. GW2 story feels like a 12 yo wrote for other 12 yos. And I don't even speak about voice acting which is just atrocious and sometimes I've even doubted if they were recorded by humans because they sound more like machines. But as I said that was my personal opinion and I don't happen to own the monopoly of truth.

TOR had its awful moments, too. Besides, it's TOR's only good feature. The only MMO that's flat-out better story wise than GW2 is TSW, but its story is completely linear, so it's not a fair comparison.

I didn't mean only TSW story quests but all main quests. But I'm not here bashing GW2 and hyping TSW. I play both and GW2 story/dialogue is for me personally atrocious. There are many good things though but as the thread was made on story purely I felt the need to express my opinion which is: GW2 story is the weakest thing in this game and if they manage to sell this they can sell everything from used underwear to empty milk cartons.

 I think GW2 is an alright game, but the story is beyond awful. All of the ones I have tried are horribly written. I have read better fan fiction on forums. GW2 is a good game..... just not the personal stories.....

I definitely agree story is not one of GW2's strongest points. Its lore is solid, but writing is lackluster more often than not. I'm just wondering about it being the "worst story you've seen in any MMO". Unless you've only played TSW and TOR, that statement is a bit weird. MMOs tend to have pretty weak stories. Then again, many MMOs don't even have main stories, so I guess they can't be compared to the personal stories of GW2.

Right the exapansions for GW2 will be like GW1 and everything inbetween free. The OP is just thinking they are going to change their mind and get us.
