The fact that 34% of you find WvWvW to be the most exciting thing about playing Guild Wars 2 doesn’t surprise me in the slightest. Guild Wars has always held their PvP standards pretty high and their community reflects that. What I am surprised to see is that you all enjoy questing more than dungeons. Most other MMOs today wouldn’t see this statistic I think because, for one thing leveling is usually considered a chore, and secondly dungeons are the bread and butter of many an MMO. In case you were wondering I voted for Trading Post, but I’m sure you wouldn’t have guessed anything else from your Gold Guru.

What?! We’re not too wild about paying a subscription fee? It’s true, I think MMO subscriptions are a thing of the past. Every MMO game developer wants to be the next WoW in their business model, but there can be no other WoW thanks to popular “Pay-to-Play” MMOs today like Lord of the Rings Online and Guild Wars 2. The last MMO to see some success with a subscription based business model was SWTOR, but even that was temporary. Zenimax Online Studios will want to think long and hard upon these facts.
