Daily Tip: Each character in Guild Wars 2 will have a unique “home instance” in their racial capitol

Lessons Learned: ArenaNet Reflects on GW2’s The Lost Shores Event

Posted Wed, Nov 21, 2012 by Martuk

Last weekend ArenaNet launched Guild Wars 2 second world event with The Lost Shores update, adding a new PvP map, the Fractals of the Mists dungeon, hundreds of new items and the new Southsun Cove map. Whiteside reflected on this weekend’s event and how to improve on content delivery going forward.

"We’re very excited about the new content, and from the reactions we have seen, so are many of you. Players have already spent an incredible amount of time in the new Fractals dungeon, and their reaction to it has been phenomenal. A lot of players really enjoyed the trailblazing aspect of unveiling the new Southsun Cove map, specifically the feeling of discovery and being part of the land grab.

Having said that, we’re also aware that there were certain aspects of the event that could have worked better than they did, and thanks to your excellent feedback we’ll be working toward strengthening this type of content moving forward. At ArenaNet, we always try to push the boundaries of how we build online worlds, and we thank you for your patience and collaboration as we pioneer into unknown territories. We’ve seen people saying that they really liked the principle of using events to unveil new content, but we need to tighten up the methods by which they are deployed. We take these comments to heart, as it is our goal to always deliver content of the highest quality."

Whiteside also offered a preview of what’s in store for the future of Guild Wars 2. In short, the team plans to revamp all story and explorable dungeons, add new Fractal of the Mists dungeons, enhance the open world scaling feature, expand the Southsun Cove content, add new Guild Progression features and more. So expect Tyria to continue to grow.

Horizontal progression systems, when done correctly, offer MMO gamers better options on how to refine their characters over time that a steep power curve based on disposable itemization alone fails to accomplish. We take a look at how Guild Wars 2 helped pave the way for the horizontal progression revolution.
