I think the real question deqer is why would you continue pay to play for those reasons.

I personally stopped playing WoW when GW2 came out and hit me in the face with the realization that I was paying for the privilege to sit around in town while waiting for my raid/random to start so I could go after that 1% drop or gather my points to spend in rainbow sunshine gear. What a TREMENDOUS waste of money.

Say what ya will about GW2 but I've gotten far more fun, and far more regular (and content packed) updates to the game in the ~6 months it's been out than in the ~6 years I put into WoW.. sans the $4000 or so I put into that game.

I feel the same - have had more fun in GW2 than I did in 8 years of FFXI, barring a 2 year period when I was a core member of a really amazing guild of great folks. But that was all about people - the FFXI game mechanics got in the way but we still had a wonderful time. In GW2 the mechanics are designed to enable, not hinder the fun. The potential for good times is much, much greater.

The old ways of MMOs are done. I think everything new in the genre that arrives will have been colored by the changes GW2 has brought to the table. And that's a really good thing.
