Guys, did you realize the class shifts during the initial month? I think it's near proof if the much disputed fact that people just play what's powerful. If a pink girl-only musical-singer class with attacks consisting of punchlines from andrew lloys webber shows was the faceroller of the month, people wouf go for it.
Like, when I started this game (on human) you ran across the classes people though would do most damage and be most uber. Namely, there were a sh*tload of Elementalists, a huge number of rangers, thiefs were mid-range and practically no mesmers and engineers. Everywhere you went there were meteor storms and arrow rains.
Fast forward to now. After one month, newly 80s are MOSTLY mesmers and thiefs. The number of Elementalists I see has drastically decreased both in low level areas and at 80 and in PvP...
To me, this is the first time I can really nail it down. Once people realized the elementalist is hard to play and definitely not a FOTM class they stopped playing it... And once the fact got round that Mesmer is a beast in PvP suddenly everyone and their mom like pink butterflies...
