This has been a fun update. I never even played Mario Kart, but I'm having a ball with the Mario-Kart-style race.

Sounds like another bunch of superficial "fun" little activities. Great for the fans, I suppose.

I'd like if they started added something with a little meat on it, though.

Five-man PvP is the meat of the game to me. It's never going to be a game for raiders.

Raider? I'm not a raider.

But you're right, it's never going to be a game for people who're into raiding, open world PvP, housing, sandbox features and so on.

Fair enough - and we all like different things.

Yeah - another 80 levels, for instance.
