1. You pay Arenanet money to buy gems, not coin.
2. The gems you have can be traded to other players for coin.
3. The coins you have then buy items from the trading post, ALSO from other players.
Levels also don't mean much in the context of that game. It's trivial to reach level 80.
Sure, you can reach level 80 through crafting alone, but you didn't actually Advance anything other than crafting.
A blatant lie. Coins can be converted to Gems.
Canopen certain chest without keys
The equivalent to the locked Black Lion Chests are exactly like TF2's locked Crates.
Enjoy your spiralling inflation then.
I have notices, about the time of release, Everyone was bailing on D3 for GW2 since D3 was broken, couldnt be fixed, and sucked while GW2 was the best thing to hit pc since D2. Well I now think that everyone has come back after they realized the GW2 was a more socially dependent game, and after everyone got 5 chars to max lvl, and saw that NOBODY did ANYTHING endgame, they decided to give it up. I mean, whats the point of lvling your char for 2 days to lvl 80, if you were just gonna go to an area and try to solo an event and get your !@# handed to you by a lvl 15 mob? Seriously? Level 80 getting pwned by some prissy little 15 mob? Get real. So you all came rushing back to D3, which was still fun, and still gave you a reason to play.
Gw2 is a pvp game. you pvp at the end...
You can't trade gems to other players in the sense I think you mean. You can convert them to in game currency with a fluxuating market values. As for the chests, no. TL2 you find a bad guy who you kill and he has a key. Know how many black iron chests I have in my bank? 104. How many keys have I gotten? 5. Don't get me wrong. I love GW2, but just pointing out that you're wrong.
as for the person saying you need to spend money for upgrades anything etc, you can convert your gold to gems and upgrade that way. I have on several characters. I spent money, but that was just to support their fine product and bought some minis. Never bought an upgrade.

TF2, not TL2.
How's that even possible I played on Headstart launch and I traded myself 100 gems in already ,wtf you talking about, with just ingame gold. that was on first day aug25. i got my first gem on august 24th couple hours before midnight. but i mean if that's true then people were already pouring money into GW2 then LOL.

Forumcraft is fun derp. plus seeing everyone flame at how bad TL2 is and praise how great D3 is, is very funny. why aren't we on the TL2 forums because everyone there is going ohhh good job, or going ohhh great game ty devs, the ones saying anything like TL2 SUCKSSHIET and whatnot just get ignored it's no fun, here everyone's like HAHA D3 ROCKS TL2 IS BAD ZOMGBAD CARTOON GRAPHICS IS EVERYTHING HORRID.
Sorry OP what are you talking about feeilng invincible end game ? As far as I'm concerned you're brainwashed by D3, You beat Normal difficulty you've beaten D3. It's just a DIFFICULTY setting, oh nightmare? what? I ran the same build from normal -> end of hell in d3, it was fking unbelievably linear.
Inferno is end game? LOL inferno is endgame 4th time through buddy, most people play a game once and quit after they've beaten one difficulty, diablo3 just brainwashes you into thinking that there's more content past each difficulty which in reality isn't really. it's just a few more sticks with numbers here and there and some mobs that got some glowing effects.
If you're playing TL2 on veteran difficulty and said it was easy you're stupid because i guess you missed the difficulty setting under it called "Elite" idiots.

yes they were, people were spending real money to buy mats to level up and get the best gear.
a legit level 80 with level 80 gear will destroy a upgraded level 40(level 80 stats) with level 40 gear. So buy being able to buy your way to the top, as well as pay cash for Def boosts, health boosts, crit boosts, Gw2 is a pay 2 win game.
*peeks at profile* ahh.. that explains it... /thread
Call of Duty 4:

Put in MW2 and talk to all my friends about how great CoD4 was and how the new games don't compar, but how we are forced to play MW2+ because they no longer support CoD4 and let cheaters run rampant.

It's morning already.
Go to bed.
Fall asleep because I played it all night.
Where the !@#$ am I ingame?! ?!? :D
d3 doesnt have microtransactions.
there is a fee when transfering real money made to a real bank account(fun fact, that process is not free in the real world) as well as a $1 fee when transfering funds to your b-net account.
if a $1 fee anytime you MAKE money is getting your panties in a twist maybe you should stop playing games.
As a player, you never, not a single time, pay blizzard money for anything, all your money goes to the player you bought items from, and that player gets charged a fee to transfer that real money around, which does take resources which need to be recouped.
This is not what i would call a money grab, as so many of you trolls want to call it.
what you are paying for are the transfer fees of money ACTUAL REAL WORLD MONEY from one person to another, THAT IS NOT A FREE PROCESS.
Go try and wire money to someone, ill wait. go ahead go to western union and wire some money. Guess what, they charge you to do that.
Jesus !@#$ing christ, CHILDREN these days have no concept of how the actual real world works. They think everyhting is jersey shore and twilite.
are you referring to PvE or PvP, because PvE those don't amount to anything other than a speedup and for PvP it doesn't amount to anything. which in terms isn't pay 2 win.
You're completely wrong. When i sold 28m gold i was charged 30% of the amount i made. Not 1 dollar. And i never even transferred the money out of my blizz account. What exactly am i paying for?
So the same percentage of gold is taken when you sell something because...?
