Yeah, I reached lvl 80, seven times (working on number eight) and can still play!
Wow, servers were actually down? That's a rarity.
I myself never have a lack of things to do. I've got a couple 80's now, always working towards more. Working on getting Asended stuff on my main alt, guild events, the wonderfully updated WvW is a blast again and I'm in a guild that participates in GvG which is a blast and we all hope to see that added officially soon, maybe for the first expansion.
Doesn't hurt that they seem to add rock solid content patches every single month with some of the best new content I've ever seen in an MMOG. Super Adventure Box for example is astoundingly fun, my guild has been having a blast playing it. I've not done a whole lot with my main just because of the lack of dagger skins.
I can see why some folks don't like the game as much after cap. With no real progression (Ascended gear is optional) and no raiding. Myself, I love that about the game but I know others don't. Game seems to be more for casual MMOGers like myself and for that it suits me greatly. I can only hope an MMOG will come out that is up to par with GW2 in terms of polish, skill-based gameplay that is designed for a more hard-core playerbase. WoW is aging fast, so folks like that (and I have friends who are like that) really need a quality new MMOG.
Originally posted by Jean-Luc_Picard GW2 is the MMORPG with the less real downtime, they usually patch "on the fly"... so when the rare downtime happens, I was expecting people to have a bit patience...
Well even now you state that the downtime is such a rare occurence, why wouldn't there be some questions asked, especially if this the first time a player may have ever experienced such an event.

considering how bad the game play was, hopefully forever.
You kids always posting in the wrong forums.

if you are a WOW generation player and need that carrot dangling in front of you, yes.
