Grail, I honestly have no idea what you're trying to say. I never once voted him down, asked an honest question, and expressed non-aggressive comments about the cash shop.

It seems like the more we hear about Guild Wars 2, the less it's becoming the savior of the MMO world. I never subscribed to that way of thinking, but I bet we hear a lot less "WAIT UNTIL GW2" the closer we get to release and when it launches, we'll hear "WAIT UNTIL (next big game)".
I'll still be buying it, but after that comes out, I think it will be the first time in a few years that I don't have an MMO on the horizon I'm looking forward to. Heck, I can't even think of many games I'm looking forward to at this point.

It would seem the answer is "Dont skip the content".
Other people skipping content doesnt hurt my experience.
Sidenote: its amusing to see, as the game gets closer, the shift away from it being the second coming that will change the face of MMOs as we know it.

Thats my fault, I misread your initial statements. I thought you were saying you weren't aware GW2 had a cash shop until after you ordered.

Elin, and that awkward looking animal race are primary reasons I won't even consider buying it. They look so forced. I mean, there are many small reasons, and I'm gonna try it this weekend, but those were deal breakers.

Its weird, I agree 100% about the gamble boxes in mmos... Yet I realized I do the same exact thing in Mass Effect 3.

But B2P inherently means cash shop, as all p2p mmos have box cost and still need the sub fee.
That said, GW1 and 2 have much better cash shops than f2p games, from what has been announced. Unlike those games, you will get a full experience, with optional perks. You won't be hindered by restrictions on class, race, bag space, guild creation, chat channels, etc.
And, with GW2, it sounds like all things can be bought with in game currency.

Honest question: In an mmo without a sub fee, how did you expect them to make money to maintain servers?

Someone hasn't followed the patch, I see.
Those textures are actually just as shown.
