Updates for Guild Wars 2

I know it’s almost unbecoming to complain about getting things but there is such a thing as too much. This is something ArenaNet need to understand as they attempt to update their MMO game, Guild Wars 2.

When Guild Wars 2 was first released, ArenaNet promised that there would be regular updates of the game. They have been good to their word but there’s such a thing as too much of a good thing. Their stated desire to have update on Guild Wars 2 twice a month is just too much.

The twice monthly updates will reportedly have new features, story content, new loot and achievements. I only have one question; do these mini-updates actually help the game?

Now I can understand why ArenaNet is doing this. They want gamers to play Guild Wars 2 and these updates are their way of making things fresh. However, I rather have a big update once a month than 2 smaller mini-updated once every 2 weeks. The last update in Guild Wars 2 added just 1 mission, a mission that would disappear in 2 weeks. What if gamers don’t have time to play the game for weeks?

Gamers, at least most of us, exactly has a life. Most of us don’t have time to play the game everyday! A big update will work far better for gamers than a series of small updates.
