Hi! As I’ve mentioned before, I’m an end-gamer. DB crafted, 3k gems (low), basically unlimited gold from PVP, etc.
I have seen people saying that after your newly released Invasion mode that they will leave the game. That is bad for business. But think about how many people after trying this new mode, after last weeks mode, that don’t post here, are going to leave.
You’ve got stats that show this information and all I have is Steam Chart, but I’m willing to bet that if I, a VIP, a dedicated end gamer is refusing to shell out 100+ bucks, or whatever for your new ENERGY SYSTEM, a new game player who doesn’t even understand the basics yet is going to see this and say “oh, okay, it’s pay to win, next game.”
I WANT to play your game. I WANT to pay for things to help you guys out. I have, just look at my transaction history and VIP level. Paying for a few gems here and there to (maybe, doubtfully) open chests is DIFFERENT from what you are asking everybody to do with the ENERGY SYSTEM that REQUIRES us to purchase it, lest we will not progress in the event.
Guild Wars is a very flawed system, but it is free, it is fun, it is infuriatingly brilliant. These new modes are boring, unimaginative, and worst of all DEMAND MONEY.
“Gem Value” is not gems. Play your own game with a fresh account and see how it is for newer players, and see that they will leave once they realize it is PAY TO WIN.
