Who cares if the game is gold? There's a patcher. There will be at least one more patch before Nov 23 and, obviously, constant patches after release.
This MMORPG is more complete at its release than just about any other out there.
Guild wars was beyond boring and lacked a key element: fun.
It's funny that you're one of those kids who scream "nerf" when Blizzard implements a "change".
But what do you care, you won't be playing anyway. (yea, right.)
Constant patches after release? Don't kid yourself. Blizzard's stated repeatedly since the beginning of the beta until now that there will not be constant patches, but rather releases of large patches that don't occur often.
Just because WOW is more complete than any other MMORPG doesn't mean we have to accept it in its current state. After years of development and from Blizzard, nonetheless, one would come to expect something more than an unfinished, buggy, imbalanced product.
I don't know where you get off on calling Guild Wars 'unfun'.
"Change" hah. Tell that to all the warriors who can't tank anymore. What's their purpose now?
