So I saw a lot of hate threads originally (When the beta was still going.). Then after it ended, a lot of love threads (By mostly different people, obviously)
Looking at the various names of people starting threads, very few people actually shifted their position at all since the Beta weekend event.
Saw a lot of 'I used to be a fan of but beta made me hate it' threads started by people who have a history of hating GW2, or who had accounts with no posts abou GW2 (So apparently they loved it in some OTHER forum site, but were so ashamed of changing their mind they had to come to MMORPG.com to admit it)
Didn't seem to be a whole lot of shift in opinion from people. Am I just missing all the mass amounts of threads where people legitimately changed their mind?
It seems like (except for obvious beta problems like stability and performance issues) Arenanet pretty much delivered the type of game systems they said they would, and it's only non-fans who feel burned in general (What? This isn't a sandbox with dynamic randomized events and no zones and open world faction PvP in starter zones, like they promised they'd give us!), while most fans appear to have had relatively realistic understandings of what was being offered, and thought it was delivered on?
... am I confused on what's going on? Because that's what it seemed like to me. I've always known what dynamic events would offer, and what they were in the game was exactly what I expected, and I enjoyed them for all the reasons I thought I would. I'm not surprised at all.
