One specialisation per class to start with, more added in the future - per Colin Johanson and PCGamer.

 

That's extremely disappointing. It's not a specialization when it's the only choice. Hopefully they give us the option to change them otherwise that's just terrible design choice. I can't see them being that stupid though.

 

But who knows.. they still think the NPE and the trait redesign were good ideas.

Calm down, they'll perhaps add more specialisations in future; besides, we need to see these first to judge, complain etc.

Honestly I'd rather they take their time and get good content out incrementally rather than releasing a bulk of lesser content.

 

Personally I've always put GW2's flaws down to the game being forced out before it was really ready by NCsoft. All the reworks of core gameplay systems is just another symptom.

I agree with that but this expac is already long over due. Not to say that I want a badly thought out mess like the NPE and trait redesigns from last year.

I'm perfectly calm. What an odd thing to say.

Pre orders for the Heart of Thorns "expansion" is out now:

 

http://buy.guildwars...:::Global:40:::

 

Lots of drama behind this. Apparently Anet, deliberately or otherwise, said that the vanilla version of the game would be required to play the expansion. But now the vanilla version of the game no longer exists and there is only the Heart of Thorns version of the game, which comes with all the vanilla content. So they are essentially making people buy the game twice.

 

And then there is the fact that people who have been long time supporters of Anet and GW2 are getting less for their money comparatively than those who buy the "expansion". The fact that it features a new class and they are not giving away a character slot unless you pay $25 extra is disgraceful at best.
