I was kinda expecting something a little more than what was said. Not really much info that had not already been speculated.

I lol'ed when I read this:

MMO veterans will note the similarities of our system to EVE Online’s PLEX system.
Because that's EXACTLY what I was thinking while reading the previous paragraph.

Guru forums exploded like crazy. Thread started at 1:30pm EST and it is still going on at 8pm EST. ATM 1726 posts. I do have one concern.

Guild Influence is power. Guild Influence can be bought with gold. Gold can be made by selling gems. Gems are bought with RL cash.


They are selling power in WvW. You can run faster, healer better, have more health, better/more efficient siege weapons, have stronger forts, find better loot, and have better stats altogether.

In PvE you can be more efficient, too. You get more and rarer loot, more karma, more experience, and better crafting items.

As I said in the guru forums. Not exactly pay to win but definitely pay for an advantage. Guilds who do not use the cash shop will be at a disadvantage.
