Why is all the new content being added to the gem store?🤔Also, other than to compete with wow vanilla, why does anet NEED to make their expansion announcement at the same time as WoW Vanilla and why have we had such a bad content drought?🤔Are we ever going to get a rework on WvW (mounts ruined it especially for thieves)? The last question is: "why do we need to wait a month in between seasons if the only reason players play ranked is for legendary amor? Please answer all the questions, or your favourite question in the chat below. Dont forget to leave a like and to smash. Just smash, man, whatever it is, smash it.

With love,
your boi Asmon

ps. I need help finding a new game, this one isnt doing it for me anymore :/ sorry bois

Edit:
1)This post is tongue and cheek for the most part, but the first question I asked i feel is still unanswered. What upsets me about the gem stores the most, are all the beautiful skins that end up in the store and not directly in the game. Yes, you can technically buy and convert gold to buy gems, but that takes a lot of gold. A better question would be: "why are all good looking skins, whether its mount, weapon, or armor skins, in the gem store and not in game?" For example, nearly all skins that are added to the game through the gem store look much better than any other in game skin. The fact that anet adds this many skins to the gem store does take away from the development time for artists in one way or another. Another question arises from this, which is: "why would cant we have good looking skins in the game, that compete with gem store skins?" Obviously anet needs to make money, but with recent events regarding loot boxes and predatory micro transactions Im starting to hate this gem store. I find it cheap that all the best armor skins are in the gem store. So thats what i ment to say with my first question.
2) so pax west is on the 30th, which explains a lot. Still though, they didnt have such a large announcement before so i still believe Anet chose to do this long, and special event on the 30th.

    Well if adding shop items is supposed to compete with wow classic i think someone made a huge error. Try wow classic, im going to try it out i already have an account there. But first i want to hear what the announcement is

    not everyone agrees

    yeah youre right, but mostly because it doesnt affect me since i dont play much WvW. Thing is, what is mobility for if ever class can move around the map nearly as fast as thieves. This is just an example though.

    It's not the only reason some people play and some people want a break between seasons. It also gives ANet a chance to assess the metrics and evaluate the balance.

    There arent that many people that play spvp, i promise you that, and especially at higher ranks. Anet balances during season, so that doesnt make any sense. Also, what is balance anyways? havent seen that in a while...

    Don't forget to give away your stuff.

  • Well if adding shop items is supposed to compete with wow classic i think someone made a huge error. Try wow classic, im going to try it out i already have an account there. But first i want to hear what the announcement is

    I wasnt very clear, my bad. What i meant to say is that companies compete with other game companies by releasing their games at the same time as other games to steal the attention from smaller game releases. AAA companies do this often and this happens if other industries too. Youre right though, I think I will try out vanilla since im stoked for it. Might not have time though since im in uni.

    As you said other games try to steal attention from smaller game releases so wouldent it be bad for anet a smaller game to release something when wow classic do?
    Its more likely said reveal will show something that the ones disapointed or burnt out by wow classic might be intrested in a/couple of month after said reveal.

    If this was the old Blizzard, I'd be hyped. Ever since Activision got involved, I've been avoiding their games.

  • Can I has your stuff??
    Also, the announcement is about living world season 5 and not an x-pac. Any speculation otherwise has been debunked.
    Also, Wow vanilla is already announced
    Also, this is at the same time as the gw2 anniversary, it got nothing to do with Wow vanilla.

    There's the problem, how can anyone still be hyped for something that was announced 19 months ago. I mean, imagine the long term damage being done to your hype glands if you're maintaining elevated hype levels for that long? It's irresponsible.

    Mounts in WvW were okay but it's ruined by the fact that any newcomers have to grind tediously for the Warclaw, leaving you far behind groups and diminishing contribution. I don't play WvW much so I've had to chip away at it for ages. I'd wager in another 2 hours I'd have finished the Warclaw collection. I understand why it isn't given away outright, but they could have done just that and simply not allow it to be used outside of WvW. Instead you become bored because you can't keep up. This is also why mounts were needed, running from A to B is incredibly dull and it puts people off or they get tired of it and go elsewhere.

    What bothers me so much about this game is that absolutely everything has a wall. Wall here, wall there. You want that? Grind excessively. You want that too? More grind, even if it's a tiny item. This is a pain because material costs for items are ludicrous. Ascended... crazy material cost when you have to craft a full set of armour and ascended weapons, with a kitten ton of time-gating in between. The biggest issue for me though is that FARMING IS NOT VIABLE in GW2. Now people will come in here and scream at me saying yes it is.... but no, it isn't. It's far MORE viable to grind meta, make gold and then buy your materials on trading post. It freaking sucks. Which leads me to another point regarding the likes of Leatherworker and Tailor. Of all the professions, the most annoying (excluding Scribe) is gathering materials for Leatherworker and Tailor. Armoursmith and Weaponsmith have it easy. Artificer, okay. Cooking okay. I have 750 material storage and within a flash all of my collected goodies are gone. You telling me this isn't grinding people's gears to spend gold? You get very little rewards in GW2 for your time investment and with the addition of overly fancy looking outfits / skins, Anet are also undermining those who put the most effort in.

    I don't mind grind. In fact, I like it. But excessive amounts of it is just irritating. With WvW this stuff is really starting to annoy me. I'll have the Warclaw soon but it's an immediate put-off. Newcomers to WvW will likely not bother and just try PvP instead.

  • No content is being added the gem shop.

    content is being added in the way of development time

    That is not content.

    (1) there's unlikely to be an expansion announcement

    i agree, but also what then?

    They said what in the news post. The subject matter of the announcement is living world season 5.

    (2) we haven't had a content drought; it's been exactly 90 days since the LS4 ended (and we have had two festivals, including a new one, plus a variety of special events)

    festivals are just rehashed content, nothing new. And yes, ls4 is content and one raid wing. Relating to the previous question, development time is being wasted on gem store art and design

    Again wrong. Firstly rehashed content is still content. Also considering one of the two festivals run (Dragon Bash) Is the first time the festival actually ran (as a festival) as aposed to the old lws 1 format.

    WvW focus is overhauling (aka Alliances).

    only heard rumors that anet is working on it, so that doesnt count.

    Not rumors, the devs themselves have up and said this.

    Why does Anet need to make their announcement at the anniversary of the game's release? Because anniversaries are great for announcements!
    The real question is why did Blizzard decide to release wow classic at the anniversary of Guild Wars 2 release and not at some other time, like the anniversary of wow itself. It would fit to release classic at a time that coincides with the release of the game, instead they chose GW2 anniversary.

    Ladies and Gents, it is not about about the destination, but all about the journey. How you get there it's all that matters and the journey is being achieved with sparkling gem store outfits, on flashy mounts (gem store exclusive).

    I don't believe GW2 will ever see a new expansion.

    WvW rework or restructure (name it as you want), if it comes in the form of alliances only, it will not keep the wvw population engaged for long.
    Mounts are not fit for wvw , I agree, but skins will be available, in the gem store. The potential to milk some cash is there.

    As for the pvp gap between seasons, I see it as the rest of the game: timegate wars 2, cooldown wars 2, collection wars 2. You would not want to get all the shiny too fast.
    What will you be doing next?

    1) I think the reason is because its a free to play game, so they need money coming in somehow.
    2) To get excitement and get that upfront cash flow to make more content.
    3)alliances are in the works and all that it entails.
    4)probably to prevent pvp burnout.

    End of August is actually a pretty good time to make the announcement, even accounting for the "competition" - it'll only take two weeks before people figure out that re-releasing the old WoW doesn't make it any good.

    It's a marketing push possibly due to the fact that they merged their marketing functions with NCsoft's after the layoffs.

    As for excitement, maybe they've got big plans for the season that the entire studio is focusing on that genuinely makes it an alternative to another expansion or maybe it's another "by-the-numbers" LS season but the key here is that it coincides with PAX West and they have a budget for marketing so why not try to get a bit of attention when all those gamers and journalists are in town?

    Thief was just an example. I hate thieves in general, but I used thieves as an example to illustrate the idea that mobility for roaming in WvW is not nearly as relevant as before.

Salmon us still like GuildWars2, but I can understand if your interest has taken a dive. A good thing there's such a big pool of other MMOs to try; plenty of fish, as they say.

    Shark can't blame you for speaking your mind, but WoW don't you stick around until August 30th? It sure as elf couldn't hurt to wade and sea what ArenaNet's big announcement is, cod it?

    Ah fish puns. I can tell you're a tuna fun.

    What's there to by hyped for. It's still going to be the same maps we had for 7 years now (except for Desert, which is just Eotm-like, so meh)
    Everything will be the same except alliances are just a way to have different team-ups because they lack players overall, let alone WvW. Which is why they pair servers and now even started to pair SP, GER and FR servers with English ones.

    STOP TELLING ME I'M NOT FORCED TO DO SOMETHING - I AM AN AP HUNTER SO YES, I HAVE TO DO IT

    WvW still has enough players. However, since most people seem to just transfer to winning servers others feel much less inclined to play since they're permanently outnumbered, resulting in even less playtime. Entirely player made issue that will be resolved once that goes live. The change will bring population back, I'd expect many to be angry about it at first, then it settles down and will be more balanced for all. Matchups should feel much fairer, thus returning fun to the mode.

    Very passive aggressively chuckling, because I'm totally not mad on the Internet.

    Why is all the new content being added to the gem store?🤔
    Nothing new there, the gem store is their primary source of income. It demands a steady flow of content.

    Also, other than to compete with wow vanilla, why does anet NEED to make their expansion announcement at the same time as WoW Vanilla and why have we had such a bad content drought?🤔
    Expansion? Are you referring to the LS5 announcement? I don't know about that WoW vanilla thing. I thought that already came out months ago??

    Are we ever going to get a rework on WvW (mounts ruined it especially for thieves)?
    Any fix will always be a curse for one class and a blessing for another. Sorry thieves, this is the age of mounts now.

    The last question is: "why do we need to wait a month in between seasons if the only reason players play ranked is for legendary amor?
    The first hand of your question i was still in pve season mindset. I dunno. Give people time to the a break without missing out? I dunno man. But i doubt people play just for the leg armour, otherwise they would've left already.

    To defeat the dragons, see the good in them.
    Zhaitan reunites lost ones, primordus creates fertile land, mordremoth spreads the green, and jormag..
    ..jormag? Who's that?

    Not everyone cares about WoW as WoW players do... I mean there is nothing WoW can offer GW2 players, if GW2 players are actually playing Guild Wars 2. Same with WoW, ESO and any other mmo.

    When? we don't know, but the Game Director's post that revealed a roadmap said it's in the works.

    The last question is: "why do we need to wait a month in between seasons if the only reason players play ranked is for legendary amor?

    Whoever spies about GW2 for you, is absolutely wrong, why would you assume everyone must go for legendaries, pvp seasons rewards are just nice way to make some gold too.

    Please answer all the questions, or your favourite question in the chat below. Dont forget to leave a like and to smash. Just smash, man, whatever it is, smash it.

    Like? It is a forum, not youtube

    With love,
    your boi Asmon

    right...

    ps. I need help finding a new game, this one isnt doing it for me anymore :/ sorry bois

    play your beloved WoW classic then, why would you bother asking questions, and later say you don't like it? Facepalm

    Edit:
    1)This post is tongue and cheek for the most part, but the first question I asked i feel is still unanswered. What upsets me about the gem stores the most, are all the beautiful skins that end up in the store and not directly in the game. Yes, you can technically buy and convert gold to buy gems, but that takes a lot of gold. A better question would be: "why are all good looking skins, whether its mount, weapon, or armor skins, in the gem store and not in game?" For example, nearly all skins that are added to the game through the gem store look much better than any other in game skin. The fact that anet adds this many skins to the gem store does take away from the development time for artists in one way or another. Another question arises from this, which is: "why would cant we have good looking skins in the game, that compete with gem store skins?" Obviously anet needs to make money, but with recent events regarding loot boxes and predatory micro transactions Im starting to hate this gem store. I find it cheap that all the best armor skins are in the gem store. So thats what i ment to say with my first question.
    2) so pax west is on the 30th, which explains a lot. Still though, they didnt have such a large announcement before so i still believe Anet chose to do this long, and special event on the 30th.

    Gemstore updates are what keep this game alive, also those cosmetics are TOTALLY OPTIONAL!!! You do not need to be a sub free to get a unique mount skin (like in World of Warcraft). You can pay if you like an item, if you don't - just don't buy it.

    PAX is a great opportunity to get a bigger audiance, they have known the wanted to present Season 5 on PAX since 2018, so like one year in advance they were preparing for what they will present in ~2 weeks.

    Also they always participate in PAX West, whether it's just art show, or just hanging out.

    @kharmin.7683 said:
    I believe that the hope is for an expansion announcement at the end of the month.

    That would be awesome!

    It was just Cellofrag reading between the lines, that this announcement is something more, and actually just set people for disappointment.
