Here is a example from real life:
In my student days i used to live in a flat that i rented together with 3 mates. It was not great but as student money is in short supply, and we had all we needed. Yet one of the mates kept constantly complaining about everything. Slowly we all started hating that flat. But than that mate left, and slowly things started going back to normal and we again enjoyed our living quarters.
I guess I have learned there, how negativity can paint black even a good thing.
And ammount of negativity in gamer circles this days is astonding. I think we all know it and i will give no examples.
Its like a sickness of todays gamer community and its spreading. It now reached GW2.
This virus needs no big thing to fuel it. Any little thing can be a reason.
Players complaining about lack of item progression -> Anet gives them item progression <- Players complaining Anet promised there will be no item progression.
Its slippery slope of negativity.
Honestly its ruining every game for me.
So this is what I decided to do. (and tend to do with any game that I enjoy)
1. If you enjoy the game. Stop reading negativity treads - it will eventually effect you and ruin the game for you.
2. If you have things you dont like about the game (and we all have) - Is it so big an issue that you dont want to play the game anymore ? No ? You enjoy the game still - make your case known. But dont dwell on it to much. Enjoy the things you do like.
3. The issue is so big you can not enjoy the game anymore ? Its a bummer. Give the game a pause.Perhaps try planetside ?
So all in all. Negativity will ruin the game for you - even if you enjoy it.
Avoid taking part in it.
