    If it was an overhaul of the game, where combat used resources and introduced skill trees and they put in real quests, and if they made dynamic events in lower level zones good for all level characters, and if you could do WvW at lower level without being at a huge disadvantage to 80s, then... maybe.

    I wouldn't expect the expansion to be priced at $60.   That being said, if it included more character slots for new races and/or classes, I'd get it in a heartbeat.    I haven't spent any money on this game other than my initial purchase and I've been playing daily since launch.    I've met many nice folks in this game so for me it would be an easy choice.

    An expansion better be no more than $30, and it would have to fix ALL of the issues I currently have with the game...

    They would have to make pvp enjoyable in the vanilla release before I ever considered an expansion.

    Not too fond of their new grinding fetish either,  didnt start playing the game for fractals and grinding, much less boring pvp. .. but this is why I quit.

    Then the game would be WoW, Rift, TSW or any number of other games not GW2.

     

    Actually doing the DE's are good for all levels - I was doing a DE whcihc was lvl 14 and my Ranger is level 46 and got a Gold Bow as a drop which was level 46. So yes, it does happen. If you are meaning the Karma vendors in that area, then no they shouldn't. You don't play this game, do you? Or are you playing your version of the game?

    Considering the OP never has anything nice to say about the game and is constantly negative I'm not sure why he'd be interested in the result either.  Where did he get the $60 figure from?  It's kind of like the, "Would you pay $50/mo for a game?" question.

    The GW2, for the download version, was 60 dollars. I bet that is where he got it from and GW1 also charged the same price for the chapters (Factions and Nightfall) as they did for Prophecies.

    Pretty much here. I doubt they will charge a full $60 for the expansion though I'd not be very surprised if its $30+ for the expansion. They can easily use the "B2P" model as an excuse for charging more, despite having a cash shop in place. I have a feeling personally the cash shop itself isn't as profitable as they were hoping (why buy gold from them after all when its far more cost efficient to buy it from a third party?) so rather then jam more into the cash shop they will try to push at expansion cost and maybe keep cash shop stuff to a minimum as 'extra support' so to speak.

     

    I think they know full well how close to pushing the line the cash shop is already considering they wanted to make it 'fair' and right now you can get some of the best gear from crafting, something that can easily be bought with real money through their own cash shop (buying gems to gold) and then buying off players. Think they realize how people despise the cash raking 'gambling boxes' being despised by gamers and keeping it only to the boxes found in game with those keys, not wanting to draw more attention to themselves by putting more in game.

    Based on the terrible disappointment I found awaiting me and the travesty of how they've handled things post launch for a  game I looked forward to for over 6 years there is no way in hell I would pay $60 for anything made by ArenaNet again.

    Also, I don't know where folks are getting that Factions and Nightfall cost $60.  They were $40 when they came out.  Prophecies was originally $50, all content after that was $40, maybe not GWEN I never purchased that one.

    That makes sense.  Those also came stand alone and with a couple more character slots.  It will be interesting to see if they sell large xpacs stand alone or not.

    I also have a feeling we will see some free content updates, some small paid expansions, and larger more costly expansions.

    I still have a ton of stuff to accomplish so I'm in no hurry for an expac.

    A better question would probably have been, "For those who like and play the game, do you plan on buying a paid xpac and what would you pay?"

    It seems to me many are assuming tbat GW2 expansions will be minor.

    From Anet history they will be as big as the original game.

    no thanks.
    this game was biggest disappointment.
    only 1 question I keep asking myself:

    why company who got great worked original brand, I mean all 3 + add on GW games, never developed these, but *killed* then all and made just average boring game with great graphic, but without content and full of bugs etc.

    beside I don't feel safe to play anymore, keep thinking and if I discover recipe which will be considered as exploit and I'll get ban for bad work done by someone of them.

    I loved GW1 so much, I loved ANet before GW2, now I feel sad, I feel betrayed by false promises (like no hidden costs, buy to play only model, innovative game mechanic and much more).

    I think all is broken now and my GW2 experience will resume of occasional playing when nothing else comes on mind, once I've done all I planned to do on my single playeble character (world/map exploration, crafting finished).

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
    Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    Since I couldn't get past level 50 before I succumbed to overwhelming boredom, I doubt it, unless they reintroduce trinity or a workable alternative, provide a free choice of skills as per GW1, improve the tetris map design, stop spending time and effort on vista/ jump puzzle fluff, reintroduce quests rather than the huge over-simplification and immersion-breaking hearts, improve the amateurish story... I could go on. 
  • Z3R01Z3R01 NYC, NYPosts: 2,426Member

    They would never charge $60 for an expansion...

    Maybe $30 or $40 but $60 is new game territory and thats suicide.

    New game territory, like Factions or Nightfall?

    Depends on the content, and direction of it.  If its another like 10 levels of  dynamic events and a dungeon with cosmetic set then no. If it involves some kind of large scale non zerg content that requires organization/skill and rewards greatly then yes I will.

    I voted no, however I am not against the game, I have stated my opinion many times about how they stuffed up when making this game, and in stating my opinion, it is not my intent to have it gone but in the hope that they will rethink what they broke and fix it! Especially as more and more quests are being broken all the time, there are many that worked when I started playing but are now broken, especially that latest one I found that has a champoin with 20 underlings, when if you try to kill it you kill all the underlings around it and are told that there are still 14 more to kill which are nowhere to be found!

    Why isnt Pirates 101 a third option?

    I think this poll may be slighty compromised.

    This is like asking people who were disappointed in Cata if they'd buy the next WoW expansion.. who can say if it's going to be good or if it's going to be 60 bucks?

    Oh, that's easy.

     

    To have fun.

     

    Why else would you play a game? If it's not fun for you, so be it, best of luck finding one you enjoy. But that's the point after all... having fun.

     

    Ohhh so thats what it's all about.......

    I am going to take a poke and say $39.99 for the regular edition and $69.99 for the limited collectors edition expansion (guessing of course on the market trend).

    Only if, this is a big if because looking at the icon makes me feel sick, they give another 80 levels in a new game with completly redone  everything. But probably not going to buy it even it is $10 because I can't even log into the game anymore. I have hit the wall a few months ago and still cant even log in.

    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.

    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.

    Ok so 30$. Even if it was 30$ xpac, I still wouldnt buy it.

    Ok,...

    Obviously there are others who will buy the expac.  So who will or will not buy it doesn't really matter.  If you read between the lines and look at the OP's posting history in regards to GW2 you will see this poll was meant to get a recount (yet again) of who dislikes GW2 amongst the mmorpg.com posters.
