    Yep, played the story and had a good time with it.  Went to do the Skyscale mount achievement, looked at the very very very long list of requirements and after testing out flying nesting Skyscales, decided it wasn't worth the work. 

    Just getting that mount could be an entire living story all by itself.  You have to cure them, save them, and go through all the steps of raising one and making a saddle before you get one.  Work doesn't equal reward for me.  So that's two on the list of mounts I won't be getting so far.

    Fun thing, so much hope there, and then it all fell apart

    i feel sad for the current direction
    no expansion pack
    uninspiring masteries
    and no new elite specializations..

    seems Anet is pushing some things they had on the shelves.
    and might be calling i final game after that?

    Anet had a secret project axed and many lay offs. They are kinda... having a hard time.

    If they don’t fix these things fast
    they might have a death game at their hands
    if rumor spreads people will leave
    a rumorof them having a hard time and not enough resources left to keep on the same level

    The layoffs were last year (in February 2019) and related to a cancelled project that had nothing to do with GW2 dev team. I'm not sure why people still brings that up.

    The real shake-up was Mike O'Brien (Anet president) leaving the company in October 2019. That lead to an internal restructuration which probably caused slow down in development as some people decided to leave the company (either to join Mike at his new studio or try other stuff) and others ended up in new roles.

    I expect them to fall back on their feet in 2020 as things settle downs.

    I don't expect any new expansion, as Anet never wanted to make them and I get the feeling NcSoft doesn't really care anymore as mobile and console exclusives makes them more money than a GW2 expac ever did.
