With all of the negative threads I've seen in the past few weeks, I guess I'd like to see just how many of us in the community truly realize just how lucky we are! Think about it. Guild Wars isn't perfect, but it accomplishes almost everything that the designers set out to do. The majority of players are happy, and the best part is that it's only going to get better. Slowly but surely, ANet is going to continue to tweak here, add a new feature in there, and if they keep up with the level of communication and involvement directly with the community, Guild Wars is really going to end up to be something ultra special.
I am so impressed with how the devs and designers are keeping us informed, keeping in touch with us, so much so that a lot of posters were wondering what had happened to 'weekly' updates that weren't even really weekly! I don't think that a lot of people realize that while this may have been dubbed the 'final' version (seeing that it came after an alpha and a beta phase), but in reality, this version is still very much a work in progress, and very well may stay that way for a long while. In other words, people, this is only the beginning, and I love what I'm seeing. Kudos, ANet, kudos.
