    -shrug- MK's made posts like that before and Anet apparently hasn't advised him against doing so...  Odd way for community manager to approach it, but whatever. It does sound a lot more sincere than taking an apologetic tone because he actually seems annoyed enough to do that. I guess that's how I'm gonna rationalize that anyway.  
    It is his private twitter.

    Private Twitter? Lol thats an oxymoron

    I just finsihed getting all exotic weapons, armor, and making all exotic jewels on my thief so I'm stacked. tbh I'm not upset, gives me something else work towards. I was wondering when they were gonna add more progression. Whatever, most MMOs have done this.

    He isn't talking in a Arenanet official channel so whatever he says is irrelevant and should not be taken any more seriously than a random dude.

    All I can say is I couldn't care less for a armor set that have better stats than exotics because I know Anet aren't dumb and they won't release a set that will make people go EZ mode on the ones that only have exotics. The difference in stats between both armor will be so low that it won't make a difference, the bad player will still loose to the better player even if the bad player have the new armor set. Most people here don't seem to have a clue between gear grind in GW2 compared to other themepark MMO's.

    If you prefer personal twitter instead of private life twitter be my guest.

    Arenanet as a company isn't liable for whatever their employees say in their personal/private life, so I wouldn't be surprised whatever he says is the exact opposite of reality.

    I can't believe they're padding out the PvE.. why not focus on the broken part of their game, the RvR? You know, the feature that, when designed well, keeps people playing?

    I hope Anet doesn't listen to the "Hardcore Casuals tm." I hope they stick to their guns. The game needs progression.

    This thread is reminiscent of the shock some people had when TBC was being introduced to WoW and their current top tier armor would be 'useless'.

    There isn't a "right" or "wrong" way to play, if you want to use a screwdriver to put nails into wood, have at it, simply don't complain when the guy next to you with the hammer is doing it much better and easier. - Allein

    Having the developer make the items you've worked hard for and the content you've worked hard in obsolete? No bueno.

     It's like the hardcore casual dont want the game to move forward but at the same time ArenaNet should of just made a proper MMO.

    GW2 doesn't know what it is because with each item grind the game becomes less and less what the casuals though it was about.

    Fun.

    Fact is this just sets GW2 on the path of treadmill item grind but other MMOs do that better with better dungeons and trinity.

    What happened to fishing or housing or guild halls.

    Why didn't they just make a darkness falls type dungeon with new items that are still legendary and new skins.

    Problem with what you're saying is that by adding this gear progression they're in fact NOT sticking to their guns.  Hell it's in their golden rules!  There is not supposed to be ANY gear progression system, no gear grind.  They're blatantly NOT sticking to what they said by doing this.  (Assuming this is another real gear tier).

     

    If they're so OK about changing their core fundamentals so quickly then the game will empty out sooner over later.

    And again, people have no clue of what they're talking about... I never grind for gear in GW2 and never will and that won't ever stop me from owning the noobs who think that because they have the best armor in the game, they will be able to beat the ones who doesn't have it. I also never grind for gear to be able to have fun in the dungeons. Cluesless people are clueless.

    An Endless gear grind is one of the worst features you can put in an MMO. EQ and WoW both suffer for it, while the better MMOs designed AROUND it.

    Who knows. GW2 still hasn't figured out what it wants to be when it grows up. Maybe in time we'll find out.

    They said they will post their blog post later today. I'm still waiting for some details. What is ANet's local time right now? 16.00? They probably end work at 17-1800
