    Maybe.

    Depends on what they add PvP wise because far as PvE goes this game is pretty weak.

    1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

    2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

    3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

    Not a game I'm very in love with as it is too limited and the game holds your hand all the way through a la WoW. But It is wellmade and they derserv the money so yes.

    I know people will pass out at their chairs when they see this but, I'm on the fence.

    They did a great launch, they had a good thing going then suddenly something changed and with that change they still have not convinced me they have the organization or leadership skills to properly update patch and adjust the game's features. So far this past month and 1/2 alone it's been very disappointing. From the loot issues, to the glaring in your face profession problems since BWE3, and the sheer lack of  communication on any of it they've been less then stellar in their community relations.

    even the AMA was filtered.

    someone on reddit actually managed to ask about loot before it was over, and Chris said they would investigate, it's been a week and a half and still no word, just some nonsense about the war on bots.

    I wasn't surprised at all to see familiar names like bcbully and Purutzil saying 'No' to the expansion. I also wouldn't be surprised to see them in the future claiming boredom within weeks, revealing that they actually bought the expansion.

    But yeah, you surprised me lol.

    their leadership since launch has been weird and absent. I dunno what to make of it.

    No.  The game got boring fast and I can't imagine spending anymore money on it.

    If they don't increase the level cap(example: Guild Wars 1)- yes. If they do increase the level cap(example: World of Warcraft)- no.

    I will buy it the day it's released, no ifs, no buts.

    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.

    Possibly on some conditions:

    Underwater combat overhauled / extra weapons

    Guild Halls

    Polymock and other side activities (which i expected on release)

    Needs at least those things

    Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

  • RaekonRaekon AugsburgPosts: 553Member

    Yes!

    I think that the first Xpac will probably hit around April or later, so it will be a good time for everyone since

    Wintersday starts tomorrow and January and February contents are coming aswell.

  • EzhaeEzhae LondonPosts: 737Member
    Consdiering how they put out content, for free, for last months and have even more planned for next months I don't see why not. In hours played and fun factor the game already was worth it several times over for me. Sure there are issues, some bigger, some smaller and there is whole lot of tweaking on Arena Net's part to do, but since they don't ask me to pay subscirption to beta test it and they keep adding new stuff I'm satisfied. 
  • dllddlld GöteborgPosts: 542Member Uncommon
    I voted yes but it all really comes down to what they put in it (or don't), based on the game so far it seems unlikely anything but personal economic issues will stop me from buying it on day one though.
  • TerranahTerranah Stockton, CAPosts: 3,605Member
    Depends on what's in it.  We already have a pretty big world.  I'd like to see some housing where I could decorate, similar to the swg system.  I understand it probably would be instanced though.
  • KabaalKabaal Edinburgh, ScotlandPosts: 3,012Member Uncommon
    I probably won't buy it. I rarely even get the urge to log in to the game and when i do i tend to be bored by the first hour and log out for another month. It will really depend on what else is available or coming out at the time as the only way i can imagine myself making the purchase is if i have nothing else to play, at all.
  • eliteroelitero fremont, CAPosts: 263Member Uncommon
    Yes will be buying .

    Almost no reason for me to say no.

    The game has more value than all of the console games I've bought the last ten years combined.  The monthly updates of free content is more than any MMO I'm subscribed to, and the game seems to have been running much better than it did at launch.  The Elementalist is very deep in it's skill system and chaining, and I'm starting to have great fun with the warrior as well.

    Though a big thing for me is if they include Housing and Guild Halls by then, as well as the increase of the continents.

    There's just no logical reason for me to say no save for it being a time where money is hard to come by.  Even if I didn't like all the core mechanics, I'd probably still support the money for content value it provides.

    When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

  • grimalgrimal Stamford, CTPosts: 2,874Member Uncommon

    I voted no.

    It was a fun game for a time.  But that time has passed.

  • VolkonVolkon Sterling, VAPosts: 3,788Member
    In a heartbeat, but it looks like we'll be waiting awhile for an expansion. Interesting note, they're saying that the January and February updates will contain an expansions worth of new content, so it seems that we'll be getting the first one (comparatively) for free.

    I enjoyed it while I played but unless the x-pac dramatically overhauls the design/classes/skill system I doubt i'll come back.

     

    I'll probably still be playing TERA somehow and DF:UW seems very promising, with those games still in my mind I haven't had the slightest urge to play GW2. :/

    It is neat to mess around with, as a single player game, but unless there is a major overhaul to the social (or lack thereof) system in Guild Wars 2, I'm not very interested in purchasing any expansion.  GW2 is just simply a lonely experience.  No real interaction or rivalries between players, or the commands / tools to do so.  Interaction only exists in friend lists and guilds, which are very useless, especially in a game about "Guild WARS".  PvP is pointless also.  I have no incentive or desire to log on (outside of holidays just to see what was done .. but even then, meh, still single player everything).

     

    ArenaNet did mention player / guild housing, and that *might* be neat, but it would literally need to blow me away, because Rift's Dimensions is king of player created areas right now.  They essentially said, "While other games let you decorate a house, we'll let you build you house from scratch, micromanage every small piece like Lego's, and then let you build a whole zone to put it in, also from scratch."  Hard to top that.

     

    If ArenaNet ever does player created content, this is literally what they are up against:

    OK... that Dimension thing is pretty amazing. Maybe, just maybe, ANet is holding off realizing what they have to compete with and they're trying to do so. They do seem to have a habit of taking what they see as the best of other games and trying to improve on it...

     

    Imagine the boon to crafting if furnishings and all that came into game in the future. Wow.
