I think so far, I like the game, and content is being released at a pace that I wouldn't deem exhausting, which in some ways is super nice....
But I was also hoping for more extremes to come out this week.
As it currently stands some people are, or just about, getting to the point where they are completely capped on gear, and this means that we're basically guaranteed to be 70 gear score when entering extremes.
It also means that when the 90 raids drop, we'll be almost guaranteed to be 75 GS.
This has an added side effect of making the game really really easy, or at the very least, easier.
It would be nice to have some of the challenge brought back into the game by giving us the option to run raids we aren't necessarily fully geared for, making things a more difficult challenge with a potential reward of better gear (better in the sense that upgrading from a 60 piece to a 90 piece is better than upgrading a 75 piece to a 90 piece).
At the current content release rate, anyone who actively plays will be full 75 GS, when 90 comes out.
Anyone who actively plays will be full 90 GS, when 100GS comes out.
Anyone who actively plays will be full 100GS, when 110GS comes out.
And so on.
If things stay the way they are now, people will literally spend an hour to 1 day learning a raid, at most, and then proceed to faceroll that raid over and over and over on a weekly basis until this game is all but completely boring.
I would like to see a point where raids are actually a challenge, or a point where it would take a few days and attempts of learning the mechanics with effort in order to actually achieve something (Similar to how the hidden bosses felt in the beta, but maybe even more challenging than that).
Right now it feels like we're basically being babied to max GS, and then let loose to faceroll the next stage of content. And then we just repeat.
Will that ever change?
I know a lot of casual players are very vocal about their opinion that this game is way too hard already, but I also want to voice the concerns of the semi-hardcore to hardcore players that at the current rate of content release this game is far too easy and will quickly become boring.
