Childishness. That’s the only thing I can attribute to some peoples attitude. Getting mad and getting impatient about Guild Wars 2 not having a release date is just plain dumb.
Arenanet has no obligation to satisfy your personal expectations of when the game should come out.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m as enthusiastic to see a release date, to have the game in my hands, as anyone else. I’ve got hundreds of blog posts to prove that point. But do I get all whiny and irritable about it?
I don’t want to get into another refrain about development cycles, polish, or the economic climate of releasing a bugged game these days.
Here is what I will say. If you’re a fan essentially demanding Arenanet finish the game, you should probably know, they’re not going to make decisions based on some entitled brat’s whining. I don’t care if you’re a forum goer, blogger, reddit user, or some schmo in the comments of this humble blog post.
Oh how I’d love to call some specific people out on this.
No matter how testy you get with Arenanet, they’re just going to finish the game at their own pace.
Which is because, you know, they’re professional. They have jobs to do. A living to make. They’re adults who apparently now have to deal on a daily basis with children crying about a release date.
You know who probably wants a release date more than you? The people who work on the effing game, that’s who.
And again, I’d love to have a release date. Love, love, love. But it’s pointless to let myself be enraged, depressed, or otherwise negatively affected when I don’t have one.
So when you vocalize your petty concerns, knowing full well that all logic points to your incessant bitching having no effect, keep in mind the adults in the conversation (yeah that’s right, I’m being condescending, thanks for keeping up) are only thinking one thing about you.
