Please, no fanboys.
After getting burned by the D3 debacle and feeling betrayed by ActiBlizz, I am leery about jumping into a new title. Yes, I know D3 is not an MMO. That is simply a reference to Blizz's failure for a game that could have been awesome, but instead was nothing but lies and fail.
So, i have been researching GW2 and feel tempted to buy it and get in the game. I've played WoW (quit back in 2006) and played AoC from release for about 8 months. I've been off the MMO bandwagon for a long time. So, give me some honest assessments about the good, the bad, and the ugly regarding GW2. Is this something i should get into? Is this a game that I need to be in a guild? Can I play all by my lonesome and still have a good time?
