A few weeks back, I saw a Reddit thread from a fellow MMO gamer who missed a specific version of Guild Wars 2. “Players everywhere, lots of dev communication, was pretty normal to see devs running around on the world, WvW always full, fun battles, lots of siege involved, dungeons were hard back then, took like an hour to do Ascalonian Catacombs because we’re new and didn’t know anything,” he wrote, scoring many ups in the process.
He got an up from me too because I also miss that period of Guild Wars 2. I remember before the game hit beta and I still earnestly believed every weapon would be equally viable for the classes that could use them, hah. But even when I separate out that “new game smell,” I still loved that early feel of the game when the overworld was bustling and no one was super jaded yet.
Do you pine for a lost era of a specific MMO?
