    this.

    That. I'd never pay for a game "just because".

    This and that.  I don't see a reason why I wouldn't because I love the game, but it depends on where they take the game, what the xpac contains, and how much they charge for what they're providing.  I've paid that much, and more, for box fees and xpacs with sub games and I'm not paying a sub for this so $50 - $60 is reasonable.  I pay for my games so unless they screw it up then I'll likely buy.

     No , and honestly i wouldnt have any use for it if Anet hand delivered a free copy to my door.. I value my gaming time and being bored stiff isnt on the menu..

    depends on what they offer in the expansion. 2 new races, 2 new classes plus new PvE zones and dungeons..... and raise the level cap... then YES. It's really not a yes and no answer till we know more.

    Depends. If it's anything like GW1, then yes it will be a standalone game worth of content. 

    As others have said, depends on the content of the expansion. If it's anything like GW1 expansions (campaigns), then yes I will most likely be willing to spend $60 on an expansion.

    I voted yes.  I got a lot of enjoyment out of the game.  If they added housing it would be a 'hell yeah'. I notice they have a lot of nice art assets in the game. 

     

    They need to expand the feature list.  There's a lot of things you can do without raiding level cap.  Been a lot of talk on the forums about what those things might be.

    I would not. After playing a few months I feel I really do like and need the trinity system.

    I voted yes, Because I just I know I will regardless of the price or the content. Call me stupid but meh I am one of those people

    I would never pay $60 for an xpac of any game.  For $60, it'd basically have to be such a huge expansion, akin to an entirely new game.  The sort of massive additions that would make it brand new all over again - otherwise, I'm going to spend my $60 on something that's actually brand new, instead.

    When I want a single-player story, I'll play a single-player game. When I play an MMO, I want a massively multiplayer world.

    Possibly, yet here's the thing.  It would have to offer as much content by itself as GW2 did upon release, and that's one heck of an expansion.  Which for an expansion might be unlikely. 

     

    Otherwise if it offered some fraction of the content GW2 did at release as a tyical expansion would, at a $60 cost, I'd think it was a shameless money grab. 

  • RedJorgeRedJorge LisbonPosts: 106Member

    Ahahahahaha.

    Paying 60 bucks for the next expansion is a waste of money but, worst than that, it will be a waste of time playing it.

    Voted no.  Despite being a GW fan, the whole game is pretty much off my radar.  Just not a good fit.

    For me 100% positive I will buy the expansion.  Even though it isn't the next coming, it is still an innovative miracle in a sea of failed WoW clones.  Was the game a dissapointment to me?  In some ways yes, Don't like the weapon skill system and I feel tha tthe Dynamic Event system isn't fleshed out enough.  Sometimes it takes alot of running around to find new events where I am exploring.  I would prefer that the events in a zone be at least quadrupled to give the areas more appeal.  I also am dissapointed in the lack of any really immersive activites to partake in like housing or much greater variety of Weapon/Armor skins to find.  I also dislike the Trading Post greatly.  It promotes elitism and economic based stock market skills to use and since the only realible way to make money in the game coems from gaming the TP this sucks for me.  I want to make gold by playing the game not the markets.

     

    Still though, hopefully new content is added that is both meaningful and fun without adding any more grind cause god knows the game is alll about gridning as it currently stands.  We need more character progression, give me a reason to use my 319 skill points ive accumalated other then to use it to buy crafting mats for my legendary.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    This seems to cover my feelings fairly well.

    The poll is flawed, where's the options for 'just show me the results' or 'don't know' ? I fall in to the latter, all depends on how the game progresses and what we expect from the expansion, didn't vote.

  • RaekonRaekon AugsburgPosts: 553Member

    Totally misguiding poll so the people will add more negativity towards the game.

    Facts:

    - GW1 had one expansion with Eye of the North (Factions and Nightfall were stand alone games which means full games) and costed the half of the price you set on the poll .

    - second expansion one could buy were the chronicles that were released very late.

    Other than that there were only free expansions like the sorrows furnace as example

    - GW 2 gives us the first expansion for FREE by splitting it into two updates from which one comes this month and the second in february

    So if a expansion comes you will have to pay, it might cost you like 30$ but definately not 60$

    So I voted yes.

  • Jean-Luc_PicardJean-Luc_Picard La BarrePosts: 3,548Member Uncommon

    So someone makes up an imaginary expansion with an imaginary, overinflated price...  the intent of this ridiculous poll is obvious: getting negative reactions about this game.

    Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO, SW:TOR and GW2.

    Even if it was $60 I don't see why would it be an outrageous price.

    Sure, most XPacs of PC games are around $35-45.

    But for most MMORPGs that mean $50-60 (box+sub) to play for a month of the XPac.

    I have no knowledge of that second expansion.

    Do you mean the Bonus Mission Pack (solo missions that would re-enact historic events of GW lore)?

    Te Bonus Mission Pack is more of a DLC and it was released at the same time as Eye of The North as a free pack for anyone spending over $10 in their cash shop, which also sold the Eye of the North expansion so if you bought it directly from Anet you would get it. I bought 2 character slots to get it. Later it was made available fro $10 or something.

    I don´t think expansion will be that expensive....maybe if it´s a "stand alone" like the ones in GW1 would cost that but i don´t think tey´ll be charging that much for an expansion to the core game.

    I´ll buy it anyway!

    I´ve been playing since Beta & still having a BLAST!

    Yea that was obvious if you ask me, like that's the actual intention, well disguised though. You know I just posted about that in another thread. I was wondering though if I was the only one who saw what this poll was [meant] for but oh well.

     

    Thanks for the information

     

    You guys take care and peace.

    60 dollars is a bit steep..if Anet does decide to charge 60 bucks for it i hope it is loaded with new content.

    i joined Guild Wars later after it had a few expansions and seen what those expansions added to the original game. The level cap took a couple weeks(days if you really pushed yourself probably) but each expansion added hours of content. Everything from new quest chains and bosses to new locations and in a most cases a new class to play.

    If the content added extends the life of the game then yes. If its just a new zone with not much new then i dont know to be honest. It all depends on when it releases and how much into the game i am at that time.

  • L0C0ManL0C0Man Puerto OrdazPosts: 1,065Member Uncommon
    Depends on what the expansion brings. If it just brings a few new areas, then I would not pay $60 for it. However, if it's like the GW1 campaigns, that basically complete games on their own (which they were, the only actual expansion was Eye of the North) and that easily added as much new content as the full game had in the first place, then I would pay as much as I paid for the game in the first place.

    What can men do against such reckless hate?
