Massively OP reader Guhracie emailed us a few weeks ago, upset about Guild Wars 2’s popular Super Adventure Box. SAB was technically temporary content that arrived in time for April Fools’ Day 2013 and resurfaced once later that fall, not to be seen again, leaving people like Guhracie — who’d purchased the SAB-specific infinite lives token from the cash shop — to forever clog their inventories with a useless item for a temporary event that may never return.
I loved SAB, the first version, anyway (the second was overscaled to discourage farming, which irritated a lot of folks and likely kept participation low). In fact, Massively-that-was named SAB the best content update of 2013. It was good. I’d like to see it return, though I know ArenaNet is busy working on other content.
Have you ever felt screwed over by temporary content in an MMO? What temporary MMO content do you wish would return?
