I was in the beta.I stopped playing the beta because I found SW was just another pve game.I play mmog's that have realm vs realm conflict(NOT PVP). Once again Funcom dropped the ball with this feature(yes some conflict is there...seemingly to be able to say it's in the game). They had the perfect venue for it and opted not to come close to what I was looking for.Combine this with the reputation Funcom has justly earned over the years....and it didn't take me long to loose any interest in this game.
PS2 and GW2...both faction vs faction games are at the top of my list.
OK OK....I have a 6th Reason to Play.
Background. I have been following GW2 ever since the first hints the game might exist.The "grabber" for me is the World vs world conflict(I'm a confessed x DAOC aholic).
So I'm reading about the upcoming beta.But for us, in today's economy... $59.95 is a significant expenditure. I'm telling my wife about the upcoming beta. And she says:
"Go buy the game".I say "but but I'm not sure I want to".......(she interrupts)
"GO BUY THE GAME OR YOU CAN'T HAVE DINNER" !
and that's how there came to be a 6th reason...............
MY understanding is...they have not explicitly detailed what will be sold.They have said they will sell xp boosts for crafting and game play among other things.That's IMO is past the level I'm comfortable with.MY perception is..... the issue is not clear .Until it is..it's an issue for ME.
Thanks for the nice article.The only concern(and it's not a small one). The cash shop selling items they should not sell.
