Good times.Yeah, i have to second this...Actually, my best memories are all from before HoT:My first Beta Experience... I was completely blown by how great the game was, the small things like the deposit materials, the unique gameplay (my first experience was an engineer, which seemed like the more unique departure from "classic" classes in MMORPGs) i was just completely mind blown. It was one of the stress tests, so it lasted only a couple of hours, but i couldn't wait to get back into it!The first GW2 halloween was awesome with the Mad King bursting from the Lion Statue in LA! That cinematic was amazing, even though it lagged everything, it was brilliant, and a great start to what promised would be a revolutionary game (this was little over a month after release after all).The conquest and settling of Southsun, again riddled with lag due to it being a timed event, was amazing.The first release of Super Adventure Box. That was amazing, and running through it with 3 other mates back in 2013 is definitely my best memory of GW2.Then there's Season 2. The promise of it got me back to the game after burning out after the second SAB release. It was great, the first run of Labyrinthine cliffs was one of the greatest moments in the game. We could see devs reinventing the game, and creating new tools and new tech to push the game onward, it was amazing! Not as memorable as the first SAB, since by then, most of my original group of friends had quit playing during the same break i took before Season 2. But it was great!That's pretty much it... HoT was pretty forgettable, even with gliding and all, it couldn't match the epicness of the early season 1. Season 3 was a bit of a revival of the game for me, and without it i wouldn't have bought PoF. But Season 4, even though the story is pretty good, feels stale. That innovation, that drive to improve the game it's all gone...I mean just thinking about all the hype about Sun's Refuge, the way it was touted as a great technical achievement, and it's pretty much a worse home instance... This is why i barely touch the game now, i went from playing 2-6h a day to playing that a week, and that's only during festivals or recent story releases... It just feels like the same thing over and over. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
