Guild Wars 2 Bans

Massively has word on permanent bans that have been handed out in Guild Wars 2 for users taking advantage of a way of exploiting snowflakes during their Wintersday event. They point to the Guild Wars 2 Forum and Reddit for details on this, but we can only find the relevant post on the latter, while VG247 points the way to this post with more on the topic. In the post on the GW2 Forum there is also a promise of a long-term roadmap for ArenaNet's MMORPG. Here's what they are saying for now:

To set expectations accordingly, the January release will be a relatively small release that sets the table for the stories and features we plan to roll out with the Feb/March releases and beyond. Also, there will be no new race, profession, or new region with these larger Feb/March releases. One of our major goals with these releases is making our existing world as strong as possible, ensuring there are reasons to go to all the locations in the world we’ve already built, and strengthening the core game we’ve provided. In saying this will be an expansions worth of stuff in these releases, we’re talking about the number of new features that will be rolled out across PvE, WvW, and PvP in early 2013, which usually you’d only find in an expansion for a traditional MMORPG.

WTB end-game content that isn't PVP

There are plenty of dungeons to run and the PvP stuff is quite enjoyable. What it lacks is repetitive raids to run for months for incremental item upgrades that will be quickly outdated. I guess people do like that though as I've been fairly happy just logging in a few times a week to run a dungeon and PvP but hear others bemoaning the lack of content they say they hate WoW for. The market is funny.

I started a Legendary Weapon last week and am enjoying the ride to get it - have been doing dailies and World Explorer for the required karma and title. The Legendary is just a weapon skin - the whole point of it is that the quest is absolutely an excuse to see the entirety of what the game has to offer. The weapon itself has no extra stats at all.

I like GW2 particularly because it doesn't have the gear grind to such an extent as other MMOs. After a few years the communities in those games always fragment into the players that can get access to endgame gear (large guilds) and those that can't (everyone else, who are also actively excluded from those l33t guilds). GW2 just lets you hang out and have fun. So long as you can afford or farm up decent gear (not hard at all), there are no barriers for entry to the fun sections of endgame.
