I cannot apprehend why one would chose GW2's style over WoW's,
And I'm exactly the opposite. After playing WoW from beta to Cata, I'd rather jab a pen into my eyeball then log into WoW at this point. Obviously for many, many years I enjoyed WoW. It was a GREAT game for a MMORPG noob like myself. But my goodness, it's so old and stale now. Then SWTOR, ugh, horrible WoW ripoff but not as good.
GW2, some fresh, new ideas, new, well crafted, explorable world, no subscription, no pressure. Will I play it all those years I played WoW? Depends on xpacs, but doubtful. The thing is, right NOW, I actually look forward to logging in and playing. Can't say that about WoW now for years.

The interface was pretty rough compared to later, but it didn't really matter to me. My first character was a Night Elf Hunter. It was at least a month, even though I was playing a ton, before I even left Teldrassil, three months at least before I ventured beyond Darkshore. Ahh... those were the days. A world filled with mysteries. Hard to believe I got that feeling of awe and wonderment at my age.
The funny thing right now is that I actually miss playing WoW.
*sigh* I wonder if I'll ever get that again in a game.

BTW, the interesting part is you might think everyone who wanted skyrim would have jumped on it at the 50% off sale, but there's STILL demand for it at full price.
Sales do NOT devalue a game.
Instead sales even increase the number of units sold for normal price AFTER the sale has ended.

Well shit, there's no way this is just to curtail the use of bots. Bots or not, it still takes some time to do any farming run, so this will definitely impact manual farming as well. There's a really neat spot in Act 1 that can net you up to 500k per hour between loads of monster gold and some magic drops, but it involves restarting from a conveniently close-by checkpoint and running over to the little side dungeon/basement that has about a 50% chance to be open. It takes no more than 10-15 seconds if it's not there, and maybe up to 25-30 if it is.
