commented on Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn would be shut down without a subscription plan, says Naoki Yoshida
If you think GW2 is actually a good MMO it is hard to take your opinion seriously when it comes to MMOs. GW2 released nothing but fluff content about a year after its release. Most games are released with 18-20 dungeons including FFXIV:AAR, but GW2 released with 8 and they only released 2 real ones after launch. GW2 has a small team that is making fluff content for every path. No dungeons and no content that will take more than a couple of hours to do. GW2 is a game for non-MMO players. If you want WoW type content patches a sub like WoW is probably needed.
