Many of us have discussed the features or lack thereof in GW2. I personally think that GW2 is releasing unfinished but for good reason. The game is close to being complete and I think that most players share a feeling niggling them about why GW2 isn't quite the second coming. I may have figured out why.
ANet have stated that they are launching a service. That work does not end at launch. Launch is when the whole thing starts.
Using GW1 as an example I can tell you that the GW1 you see today was almost completely different than what it was at launch. Even WoW can boast that they have improved or steamlined various systems in there. The difference between what games were at launch and what they are now is an interesting thing to think about.
What I feel from GW2 is that they have built an extremely solid but easily manipulated foundation for an MMO. I think they've built the game and the code around providing future updates and aren't afraid to do crazy thing just to see if it works.
I simply cannot wait for the improvements GW2 will be able to provide to players over time. Item preview, vistas, linked crafting tables to banks - less than a month.
What other MMOs can boast such quick implementation of new features?
Launch will be exciting but the future is what really excites me about gw2.
Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?
