Well after participating in the third beta, I was so psyched for this game but since then my enthusiasm has gone somewhat. With so many great games out for me in the next 6 weeks, I'm actually tempted to completely give this a miss and was hoping some people here would give me a good slap across the face and remind me why this game is a must buy.
My main reason for loving this game is the wvwvw.. I love large scale pvp and generally had a lot of fun and even managed to spend 7 hours non stop in the eternal battleground.. haven't gamed that long in ages. However, the lack of a real healing class I think will make it get boring after a while. Most people are scared to push and be aggressive so you end up with so many stand offs that it takes away some of the fun.. I'm hoping with a bit of experience people will find ways around this.
Only reason I want to buy it is to support the devs. Their communication with their community is top notch and you really do get the feeling they care. After coming from SWTOR and how awful the communication was there, this reason alone almost makes me want to throw money at this game alone.
Now the main reasons why I'm thinking of skipping this:
WoW.. blizz are sly old foxes releasing their expansion so close. I hate to admit it but despite generally getting bored of WoW after a month of going back, it always draws me in.. the lore, the world, the combat system.. it's all just first rate and I enjoy going around Azeroth far more than I did in GW2 in the beta.
Time.. so many great games out for me in the next six weeks that I think I'm going to struggle to play this as much as I'd want. I know people will come back with "but there is no subscription " but in my eyes, it being buy to play is more likely to be detrimental to my playing experience than a postive.
No subscriptions: It's not exactly f2p but neither was the original GW and generally worried that eventually the community will be overrun by 12 year olds who can't use Daddy's credit card. Would much rather pay a subscription fee and access a premium server or something to decrease the likelyhood of a bad community.
So yeah, someone come slap me across the face and show me the errors of my ways as I really do want to get into this.
