Guild Wars 2: Flame and Frost - The Gathering Storm Launches

The Guild Wars 2 website announces the addition of new content with the release of The Gathering Storm, the second installment in the four-part Flame and Frost series of updates for ArenaNet's MMORPG. This page has an overview, while the new Game Update Notes have full details on what this adds. This is a fairly enormous patch, offering balance changes, bug fixes, and new features such as the first trial pass at their event scaling system, in addition to the new content. The patch also adds two-team rated PvP play, a new PvP map, the choice of daily achievements, and more.

I'm sure that's sarcasm. Obviously you're not alone. You want what most people think they want because every mainstream MMO except the original Ultima Online has delivered exactly that. Which is also the point. Some of us both enjoy horizontal games as well as have the ability to see that it is a superior design in the long run. And GW2 was supposed to prove that by giving not only that group an MMO worth playing, but everyone a refreshed perspective on fun.

And then they failed their manifesto. Failed their loyal fans. Failed to show the merits of horizontal progression. And failed the mindless vertical gamers too by doing such a bad copy of the established MMO strategy.
