OP  12/30/12 7:46:33 AM#1

Top page topics are stale and past due dates.

News items are always just rehash.

The same old cycle of flame bait and trolls.

Even the faithful seem to have thinned out and become less active.

 

GW2, after 5 years of hype, turns out to be just another Asian end game cash shop grinder. Now that sales have dropped off, F2P can't be far off.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Are you whining that there's not enough whining? :P

Seriously, it's the holidays and there are far more active gw2 boards out there.

Yup it's the holiday season so news is scarce and thus so are fresh topics.So instead we have people starting up the same stale topics to state the same old opinions about over and over to pass time.Remember here in MMORPG.com expired equine abuse is an all time favorite.

The WOW board is stale as well and has been for a long time.  What does that mean?  GW2 had its hyping phase, we argued endlessly about whether it would fail or not, the game released and sold a lot of copies, and a lot of people are still playing it.

Like WOW, SWTOR, Rift, Tera, LOTRO, The Realm Online, Ultima Online, and every other MMO that has ever existed -- there's just not much to say any more.  especially if you're one of us that is still enjoying it.

back to WvW i go!

haha, how did you manage to turn this thread to GW2?  Masterful work. 

I realised my mistake and was about to edit this- well I have now- but sod it would have been better left alone.

Not just that, but the official forums seem to be where most people are.

Official GW2 board is over moderated, better to go to fan site and talk about the game, seems you are not allowed to discuss anything in length.  "this thread has run its course and will now be closed, thank you for your understanding"

Really, what else is there to say? Until some major new event or content is released, it is what it is, you can go play it....or not.

The op didn't mention any game at all.

But I guess he did put his op on this board, hoping to hook a few (like yourself) for the Daily Argument Clinic to liven up his day a little bit (?)

Every one went to where there are no computers or internet? Where do we find this place?

That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!

Chuckle.

Rubber chicken. 

No one knows why it's laying on the counter, but no one can resist picking it up either.
