Selminus.1490 Posted May 13, 2018 Share Posted May 13, 2018 I noticed a few key improvements and other things that make this an appealing MMO in 2018. I bounce around a lot. I played on Stormbluff Isle with LoD at launch but we got very bored of farming people in WvW with no real reward system in place. Lately I have played POE and WoW as far as this genre of MMO so those would be my most recent comparisons.A few points for people considering coming back - The good - The gfx held up really well, game still looks modern and tasteful. No cartoony content, hate that.Shared mastery exp between characters is a big relief. I guess you added houses but I don't have one yet, good move. People love that shit. Very good in game atmosphere. Have not seen any trolling and random people answer game questions in chat pretty quickly. People seem to want to help. Dynamic outdoor events still have a place and that was always the right path. I believe this, Rift and Warhammer online were some of the first to really capitalize on how appealing those are.Readily available makeover tools and a skin wardrobe, those are huge. Mounts. We never had mounts. The Bad - Huge pay to win component albeit it not effective in PvP. Credit cards -> Gems -> Gold -> Broker is going to bother a lot of people, I'm not one of them. Big towns are laggy even when rest of game is fine on max settings. World map completion on alts an impractical headache. Heavy moaning on forums regarding desirable classes in PvE. Probably not all just whinng if there's that much of it. All in all I think ANet has done a very good job here. I also had a pleasant and fast exchange with CS to get my auth off and change some passwords. Thanks, Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
