I would run more dungeons if the end gear looked awesome. I currently dont really care for most for my engi, except CoE. I like it for some reason. The level of difficulty of them right now is fine by me, but i haven't ran too many as i only have about 3 hours to run them 1 night a week. AC, TA and CM.
Adding a new area would be a mild seditive, but would be still welcomed openly. I do like exploring and seeing new areas. Im living for new weapons skins right now as currently im not super happy with most pistol skins (im looking at you pearl handcannon) I have seen, but i also understand that making a pistol look amazing could be hard. right now im using charr T2.
WvW really can't be improved upon, bc what would make it better for me, would hurt my chances to play with my friends. I'm just tired of zergs. thats really it. it's rare to see squads of people, (10 or less) doing some damage. and if there is, its usually ppl trying to get back to the zerg.
I would like to see more town clothes. That would aid in my longevity. More festival world events would be nice as well. usually giving off some sort of rare item thats purely cosmetic or a container piece. nothing game changing so that if someone misses the event, they aren't punished for it. For those that are there for the full event, give them some event only skin thats droppable. Monthly Keg ball tourny. Prize is a shiny crown next to your name for the month. then you have to either defend you title at the next tourny, or forfit it. Turn that Bobsled run in Hoelbrak into something usable. let us ride the sled!
thats all i can really think of right now, but im playing the game right now bc i am enjoying the leveling (minus my mesmer as i am power leveling her just to see how fast i can do it and to get a weaponsmith up to level)
Edited for stupidity.
Right now I'm impressed with the fact they've done it once a month so far. Though I personally hate the One Time Events (because I'm never able to make it on to enjoy them right at that exact time), I do think it's wonderful that they have been able to create something fresh and new so far every month for us. That's more than most people get with a new MMO, let alone one without a monthly fee. Expecting a game company to be able to do constant events, and "do more of it, much more" that's irrational and totally unreasonable.
Most games don't launch with as many clothing/armor options as Guild Wars 2 did, though. Anyone who was there for the Rift launch would understand. lol
Yes, more of this stuff is needed and Anet has hired new artists to create it. It'll come, but it all takes time.
Ok i shouldn't have said MUCH MORE, my bad.. but i just think if they refine and improve the events in line with the lore also it would be much more enjoyable.
And bringing monthly fee's into it isnt relevant to me, they are making lots of money in game bought items, and the fairly high price tag for the game initially.
And yes, the it's good that events happen every month which are fresh etc. but this game is built around dynamic events and large scale events unlike other mmos, it's what brings everyone to the game, and they know that, that's why they did the "invite a friend" thing during the time of a world changing event.
Monthly events are good and they should keep it up, but if it's events which are bringing people to the game, and keeping people on the game, they should do it on a smaller scale (which don't add new content to the game etc but are bigger than dynamic events), more often and do the large events more spaced out.
They screwed up the free trial weekend by trying to add a huge new patch and event at the same time, leaving a lot of people with a very terrible impression of the game. When they go to do research they will see a huge shift in feedback from fans even on PC Gamer (atleast the US version where they have an article about the added gear grind).
It doesn't matter if you like the gear grind or don't care about it. This was a terrible move from a PR standpoint, especially the way the news was released, and it will end up hurting the game if they don't do something soon.
I've seen similar opinions on this and other forums be voiced and I freely admit I think the armor design in GW2, for high-end...is sub par. Personally I have no motivation to attain any of it, yet in GW1 Vabbian took me a long time to get....because it looked awesome.
