    If grandma were grandpa would you use her or him pronoun?

    That sort of ludicrous situations 3rd conditional is used for(unreal in the past). Who cares what would happen if x were different???

    I would. I've all ready put a lot of dough into the cash shop lol

    G2 is good fun , but no I would'nt sub. for it, I paid

    $80 and I'll get about 5-6 months of play time out of it,

    that itself equals close to $15 a month.

    Oh, what a surprise, another of those posts!

    Yes, I would pay 13 euros per months for this game right now. I actually spent 30 euros in the cash shop for additional bank slots and some starter gold for my first character. It's still less than my two WoW accounts.

    And I'm going to keep laughing my ass off at people trolling here but paying for way worse games which have not only a cash shop, but also a monthly subscriptions. Talk about cows being ready to be milked.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    I would deffinitely cancel before they billed me if this was a sub game, being as it is already paid for I'll likely mess with it some here and there.

  • TweFojuTweFoju Saitama & Jakarta ( current )Posts: 1,013Member Uncommon

    nope, i wont even think of subbing after the 1st month

    call me what you want, but this game got me hyped too much, i almost did entire content in the space of 3 weeks

    yes, i know i am still missing a lot, like completing maps, doing explorable, but none of that make me want to log back in to the game just to complete Vista, POI and WPs

     

    yes, to some people, this game rocks, and i agree, it is a nice game, but i am sure this game is also not for everyone

    So What Now?

    If GW2 was P2P, I wouldn't play it at all.  Why?  Because I don't play P2P games.  I'd hate that I couldn't play it because I love GW1 so much but to me P2P is basically just a ripoff.

    You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

    Just stop.  This thread has already been done to death, there's a huge one that took place just weeks ago.
  • ProbertProbert Williamsport, PAPosts: 18Member

    Thats not really a fair question as the game was not designed in that fashion, this games mass appeal is that its FREE after the box price. They designed the game for that.

    I'm not getting into whether or not the game is good or not. (Just saying a monkey could play this game and get by all this "challenging" content that people speak off)

    Proven fact, players spend MORE to play p2w  games then sub games. The only time sub is a rip off is if bad game is bad.  WoW pre lich king, DAOC pre TOA, EQ2 a year ago, eq1, were all worthy of a sub, especially given the time I played.  I think sub fees should be lower. But it eliminates pay 2 win plus I dont get annoying adds that ruin my immersion talking about DOUBLE CASH FRIDAYS PEOPLE!!! used car salesmen are part of the real world, keep them out of my mmorpg.

    Wouldn't pay. Its fun enough for B2P (though not quite sure its worth the full price to me honestly) though its not worth it to P2P.

    I have yet to find anything "pay to win" in GW2 and I've been playing it for 267 hours since early access, not counting beta time. All I've bought I could have lived without easily - bank slots? I have 3 unused alts outfitted with 10 slot bags which are empty. Starter gold? Yeah, I converted gems to 1g for my first char, but I could have done without it too. All I paid for was pure comfort, nothing was mandatory to play the game.

    Misinformation is sad. It's the last resort of those who have no better arguments.

    Want a "pay 2 win" game? Go look at LOTRO. That's a game where you can NOT "win" without paying. To get the best gear of the game, notably weapons, you will have to pay a lot. That's definitely not the case in GW2. You can get the best gear and gain access to all game content without paying a cent more than the initial game purchase.

    Fixed it for you.  Also, GW2 is not Pay2Win.  It's not F2P.  It's B2P.  I've yet to see an ad in GW2 telling me to go spend money in the CS.

    I'd give it a go, but I'm not an altaholic in P2P games, so I'd get to 80 and mess around then unsub and forget about the game most likely.  ArenaNet would just be another company in a mess of others.

    As it is though, they stand out as special, by willing to provide a quality experience for less money.  In a way, I see ArenaNet as a gaming company run by people who love to play games, not just a bunch of analysts milking customers for every last dollar.

    Being B2P, I'll be playing alts at my leasure.  What a great way to get people involved with your game.  I expect content x-pacs to come out frequently though (like 1 or 2 per year) .. so players still have to spend money to be up-to-date.  As long as I feel like I'm getting my money's worth (this is where other MMO companies fail), I'll keep spending.

     

    The amount of people using the cash shop is incredible anyways (judging how many cash-shop gems players are trading for the gold earned by non-paying folk).  I don't think ArenaNet needs a subscription plan to make this game rake in some dough.

    Yes I'd probably be paying a monthly fee to play this, one of the better MMO's I've played in 10+ years, SWG, UO and City of Heroes ranks up there for me and now GW2.

    No. I've only played for probably an hour or two in the last week. I am happy with its B2P status, because I like it, but I don't love it.
  • JimmyYOJimmyYO Columbus, OHPosts: 520Member
    GW2 is better then the majority of P2P and cash shop "required" games out there. Unfortunatly that isn't saying much at all. I'm gonna have to go with no it would ultimately share the fate of SWTOR if it was P2P, mainly because the game was not built to last. Most will be done with it in 2 months and never come back.
  • YakkinYakkin irvine, CAPosts: 919Member
    Probably not, in spite of how much I enjoy it, mainly because I am a huge pennypincher and don't want to have to dish out extra money on top of a box price; if I wanted that, I'd just buy the next WoW expansion.
  • FrodoFraginsFrodoFragins Manchester, NHPosts: 2,926Member Uncommon
    I stopped playing for the moment.  I wouldn't sub right away but I also wouldn't have bought the game if there was a sub.
  • chakalakachakalaka Missoula, MTPosts: 287Member Uncommon
    I would still play, and probably pay up to $25 a month depending on my money holding.
  • KanethKaneth Posts: 1,922Member Uncommon

    I would be paying, for both myself and my wife. GW2 really brings me back to my original MMO days, in games like Asheron's Call, DAoC, etc. Instead of feeling like I have to plow through leveling to get to 80 to "start the game", I can relax and enjoy myself as I level. Stopping to craft, going off to explore lower level areas I haven't visited. Taking breaks from pve with sPvP and WvW.

    It's not a game for everyone, but it's certainly a game for me.

    Had to fix that by the way GW2 isn't a pay to win game so speak that shit in actual thread about an actual P2W game.

    I don't know if I will get reported for saying  that but reall recognize fucking real.

    Though for fact I know I wouldn't keep playing GW 2 after atleast one sub because honestly subs are a freaking ripoff, so I do agree with evolver.

    I also agree with the haters maybe not their reason but I just dislike P2P, I mean gameplay has a factor in it to because I swear to God Himself, I would not play this game if it was B2P but had WoW gameplay I'm sorry but that's the truth and nothing but the truth from me. I would not play this game for long if at all if it where P2P(I didn't even sub to TSW, used that to pass time was a good game though but the P2P stopped me). And wouldn't touch it if when I tried it out in beta it was like WoW.

    Enjoy life and peace.

    P2P LOGIC = If it's P2P it means longevity, overall better game, and THE BEST SUPPORT EVER!!!!!(Which has been rinsed and repeated about a thousand times)

    Common Sense Logic = P2P logic is no better than F2P Logic.

    You do realize my comment was about payment models in general and not gw2 specifically. Amazing how militant you people are.
