Yeah, and most everyone of those sales translated into 3-6 months of gameplay I suspect and very little else. They're just way too slow getting new content into this game. Any MMO not coming with something like the Foundry now is just stupid. Have to keep that content coming all the time regularly.
You know they release new content updates every two weeks? Granted, there's a smallish amount of content in each update, but it's still a remarkable pace. It suits their business model too, because they need people to keep logging in regularly since they don't have subscription fees to lock people in.

New quests with existing, or minimal new content, isn't new. New lands, quests, et al. to explore and do for the first time? That's new. I love what they did with GW2 - albeit the combat was too oversimplified and lack of a trinity is boring - but you go through it all once, maybe twice, and what else is there to hold you there unless it's some social guild thing?

I've been trying to get through most of the jumping puzzles, get 100% world completion, and keep up with the new content. I also have only done 3 dungeons, so I have to do those too.

Keep in mind that while I love MMOs, I don't devour the content as fast as people who only play MMOs. I am also playing a lot of the new games as they release, and I still play the shit out of BF3. So to me, it almost seems like the content comes too fast at times.
