We all were surprised by the game when it started but the 'new' is wearing off.
There are several items which to me as a gamer make me question whether playing this game at all is worth it.
1. Diminishing Returns- this system punishes players for playing. They say it is to stop bots; if that is so why not just ban the bots? every other mmo seems to be able to, yet GW2 fails.
I log in spend 20 minutes just getting my stuff ready, kill one thing pve; and end up getting nothing but grey stuff from that point on. I log for an hour- come bakc right to pve and get good stuff.....
Any game which rewards me for not playing it is telling me something; when the best reward is turning your client off... then you may have a point; playing your game is a mistake.
2. WvW; the prime feature of this game is WvW.
One might say that due to ques we have to have balanced realm number dont we?
One day in WvW shows that this simply isnt the case. You cannot possibly be zerged out on every map and yet have the SAME number of people on all teams in combat. Simply not possible.
3. The "Not Enough Endgame" arguement; in this case there really is NO endgame. Three 70+ zones for which you are penalized if you play for more than 20 minutes. And WvW system that is completely unbalanced; zerg rules.
Dont believe the hype, this game is a wasted effort. And a pretty big waste of money.
Is it beyond repair?
All things said by the Devs do not indicate the sort of massive effort it would take to make this game viable. I give it 3 months before hype decines remarkably in STO fashion.
We are the Founding Fathers in this virtual world in which we create. As such it seems we must do what our Founding Fathers had to do.. in order to let our fellow gamers have a fair shake.
