I found 60$ was too much for this kinda boring single-player game w/o content.
I found many, even large, same zones, same stuff to do, same way to develop any of race etc.
So NO WAY.
For record: don't play anymore, check account like once in a while, most after silly pushing e-mails.
try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

I love GW2, IMO best mmo since WoW, but i do not support subscriptions. I got a three month sub to WoW to get some of the Pandaria Lore. When those 3 months are up i dont resub until maybe next year if theres new Lore. I do not support subscriptions. I purchase boxes and expansions and the occasional cash shop that i find cool and decent. Arenanet has always showed mmos are viable as B2P.
The problem is that mmo devs are having the same problem as console developers. They try to make the most expensive game ever and then dont make any profit. Once you buy the box and expect to buy expansions theres not need for subscription and still be a triple A game. GW2 also showed that.
If you like what GW2 offers, it's the best game on the market.
But for someone like me who prefers pve, the journey ended at 80. I realized, though I enjoyed GW2 on the way to 80, I was bored to tears at 80.
GW2 made me realize that I prefer party defined roles and raids. Inasmuch as GW2 doesn't have either, I won't pay for the content nor do I play it for free.
I like it, I do, but I couldn't bring myself to pay a monthly for it. It's just not that kind of game, and I think it was never meant to be. GW2 is kinda like eating at a themed chain restaurant, they are never great, but they are reliably average.

Absolutely not, they haven't even thought of doing an expansion yet. Which means you won't have any major content additions to the game. Enjoy being stuck with dungeons and the occasional public events here and there. Nothing but little gimmicks to keep customers slightly interested in their game. But those gimmicks don't hold my interest in paying for a monthly subscription.
"Expansions are definitely something that we'll potentially look at in the future, but we don't have a timetable on it. We're open to it, but I think our major focus as a studio is making the living world concept as strong as possibly can for the players that we've got."
As you can see this is a quote from an article where Arena net has stated, "Expansions are definitely something that we'll potentially look at in the future, but we don't have a timetable on it." - Arenanet. This means an expansion hasn't even crossed their minds.
Originally posted by Soki123 There are many games worth a sub, this one isn t one of them. I get bored after a minute or 2 logging in now, why would I pay for that. One of the worst games to come out in awhile, at least hyped ones.
There definately wasnt and isnt any game thats worth a sub.
But in competition, GW2 is the most worthy of sub, followed only by Rift and EvE.
Rest are just money grabs and ripoffs.

NCsoft is preparing a Guild Wars 2 expansion pack, although official details and a launch window have yet to be announced.
"...Of course we are preparing an expansion pack but in terms of when we will actually launch it, it's something we are still monitoring.
"We are looking to the performance of the game and then we will decide what will be the best time to do the launch."
Currently playing: GW2Going cardboard starter kit: Ticket to ride, Pandemic, Carcassonne, Dominion, 7 Wonders
Good luck finding any game out now and not a decade ago that will sustain a sub for any extended period of time.
The only game i would pay a monthly for is Champions online but for having access to the Free Form power selection. Other then that I wouldn't do P2p at all for any game. The only thing i would do now a days is B2P, F2P is fine too since 99% of the times I don't buy any thing from the item store, Unless it with the Monthly Zen I get Free from CO, Or buying a DLC in TSW.
But if GW2 had P2p I would ignore it and never play it, or any game. But thankfully GW2 is B2P., Tho the only thing that i dislike about GW2 is it not having Dual class system like GW1.
Yes I would, if I would get the same advantages than I have now with my monthly donations of 10€ or 20€ to support a game I enjoy a lot, which means free gems to buy stuff in the shop.
If they had a 15€ sub for instance, they would have to give me 1200 gems every month to use in the shop.
But then, I'm a grown adult with a regular income... I can afford to pay for stuff I enjoy, and being of an older generation, I don't expect everything to come to me for free.

1000 times this ^^^^^^
It would have probably gone the same way as the many MMO's before it.Buy it,play the usual free month it comes with,then get bored and move on..
Rarely I will get a craving to come back and play another month,but again,thats rare with me and todays MMOs.
I havent been back to GW2 since the month and a quarter I played when it released.
