They're also adding 10-man raids...

Quote:
Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns™, introduces the ultimate challenge: our first raid, which is made up of three distinct raid wings. Raids are 10-player, instanced, elite dungeon content that's a challenge unlike anything we've previously released in Guild Wars 2. These raids are meant to put you and your teammates to the test and challenge you to grow your skills as Guild Wars 2 players. Raids are our answer to what skilled PvE players have to look forward to at endgame—the ultimate test to overcome and defeat.

As opposed to "buy to play" as one comment I read put it. The free-to-play business is more like a free, unlimited trial as far as I can tell.

the restriction on the free to play account are harsh.

not really able to communicate map wide and no transfers of goods.

So I think it is better to call it an unlimited trial of the core content.

I'm fine with it, having played with the free to play players with a week or so now. They are VERY restricted accounts, including the bank tabs. Which, I realize does not seem all that important, but can you guys imagine rolling with a tiny bank? Its scary!

Honestly I'm hoping this brings in more people to pay for accounts and enjoy the game. Also, this is a great opportunity for people to have that long term trial if they've ever wanted to try this game and just didn't have the time and didn't want to blow the money straight up.

Let the new players enjoy the game. Let them get addicted and wind up buying it like we did
