GW2 will probably underpreform, due to player community?

Well, the COD-type newbs can only do so much to hurt the game. There's always guild chat if they really bother you, but I couldn't care less.

They're a minor annoyance. Most people that are into FPS wouldn't tend to be into an ARPG like GW2.

There is not a direct correlation between age and immaturity. I find the most vocal immature players tend to be more 17-26ish (the I'm awesome and I know it all age for a stereotypical male) but obviously there are always exceptions and most players of any age group are not horrible like that. I've met 14 year olds with more in game maturity than some 40+ year old people.

$60 isn't pocket change for a child either by the way so money really isn't a good comparison here. Then there's the fact that I've tried the free to play WoW and the chat spam very... interesting to say the least.

Saying subscriptions somehow yield a better game community is in a way economic prejudice really.

There are always immature ppl in any mmo community. It can't be helped. What GW2 tries to do is to make their action less annoyance to the rest. I think GW2 community will be better than other MMO community like WoW.

Well the hate train is currently taking passengers from WoW and SW:TOR. Its destination is Guild Wars 2.

Gonna be a glorious couple months in general chat where everyone tries comparing this to WoW. Don't worry though, you'll regain your brain cells again once you leave the beginning areas

He should go to Bellevue, Washington, camp outside of Arenanet with a tin cup. Have a sign requesting donations so he can buy the game, since he couldn't get in the beta.

Yes, free to play, I meant free as in no sub fee, which I mentioned earlier in one of my posts. Anyways, I hope the GW2 community is a bit more mature than some of those on here that have nothing better to do, than flame.

You know I'm not the one bringing this up, so I don't know how it is pertinent to this thread.

Also, please know all the facts. I would be getting 4 friends into the game as well as myself purchasing 4 copies, because I like to multi-box. Price is not a problem, but spending 4 x $60 = $240 + another $240 from my friends, is a good deal of money. I wanted to test beta before spending that cash. But I digress, this has nothing to do with the topic at hand.

I played it when there was a subscription. So It wasn't always free to play. Same with EQ2.
