I'm a fan of the prerelease GW2, the one that Colin Johanson told us so much about, the game that never came to be.
I believed Colin when he said he wanted to make a game that wasn't grindy.
I believed Colin when he said he wanted to make a game that wasn't pay to win.
It was a lie. GW2 is grindy. GW2 is pay to win.
Legendary Weapons are BIS. Ascended armor and accessories are BIS. Legendary and Ascended have ridiculous material lists and are time gated... unless you buy the required mats from the TP.
How might one go about obtaining gold to purchase said implements of end-game destruction you might ask? Well hero, one easy way is to purchase gems with real money and then convert them to gold. (Hence forth known as PAY TO WIN.)
We were told that the gear in GW2 would be fluff, cosmetic, without power creep. We were lied to.
I am sorry that I spoke out for this game and its developers. I am sorry that I may have misled people by repeating the lies I was told. I promised that if I were wrong I'd return and say as much and here I am. I was wrong. Gw2 is in fact grindy and pay to win.
