GW2 will probably underpreform, due to player community?

I don't think the game will fail, or die. i think they have a good idea, but perhaps the execution was a litle off. I don't see this game going broke at all. I don't see a heavy load on the servers because of how weak the requirements are (speaking from a server standpoint). Hardware is cheap anyways.

Couple that with the fact the game is free. That is going to bring a lot of children to the game as well. People that can't afford sub fees or who don't have credit cards.

Those same people will be the demise of the game as people are tired when the game community gets trashed. I remember all my friends leaving GW1 because of the immature spam they would read (much like a CoD game on xbox live).

So the game will spike, then die down a bit and level off. The game will be considered a success, but in the eyes of gamers, possibly a failure?

What say you?

Positive speculation: fanboy.

Negative speculation: troll.

Just getting it out of the way ahead of time.

Carry on.

Any kid with an allowance and a ride to 7-11 can buy sub cards for any MMO.

This is just stupid.

Don't assume all kids have allowances. Some of us had real jobs when we were 14.....
