I joined GW2 and played it much like I did GW.
My brother decided to join me and couldn't muster the graphics (cause he is cheap). After a looong wait, he finally logged on and we shared many good adventures, PvP, etc...
Just like GW, I put GW2 on the back burner and moved on to other things... it happens. I have been thoroughly entertained with GW2 and would 'Like it' any way possible. There are some nuances that don't suit my taste but so be it. In the history of online gaming, there has never been a perfect game. I deal with it.
I dealt with the blatent botting, the silly achievements and the low-reward loot system. I've enjoyed the scenery, hated the dungeons and loved helping people with events. GW2 is a nice game for what it's worth. I will eventually log on and cap more classes just because I can.
When people realize that gaming isn't about the end and more about a new beginning, they might find a lining of happiness.
F2P doesn't get any prettier outside of the work put into GW2.
