antshock35antshock35 cumming, GAPosts: 114Member

I have been watching gw2 sit at 8.78 for like 3months on mmorpg most popular coming games and in number one position for eva(sand lot imitation there) . How has it not hit 9.0 or above lol....its rigged i tell you..just kidding think its my add kicking in.I joke but weather gw2 is the best game ever or worst flop in history ,besides swtor or wow I can't remb a mmo so highly anticaptated in recent memory. Come on mmorpg you know tht number should be more then 8.78......

Yes stupid thread but it was killing me for weeks not seeing tht number rise .....sorry to bring down everyones iq on this thread.

    pretty sure it would have been a 9.0 if it were a sandbox, or had "true" open world pvp as some would say.

    Let's be fair:

    1)  We MMO'ers and more specifically MMORPG.com'ers are very jaded after the recent MMO launches.  Fanboys come, fanboys go.  Haters always hate.

    2)  High 8's is really good.  Getting a 9.  That should be spectacular.  But it's not.  It's a good/decent game but it is not a 10 in MANY peoples minds.

    I never understood on a scale of 1-10 how people look at an 8 and sneer derisively.  8 is pretty damned good.  9 is darned near perfection and you should NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER see a 10.  10 is the best most awesomely epic game, zero bugs, zero snags, complete immersion.

    WoW, Everquest 2, Age of Conan, Darkfall, to name just a few where the hypetrain was massive way before the game came out.

    That, and GW2 doesn't have that big of a hype. Almost everyone who's looking forward to GW2 is playing or has played GW1 - I don't really know many people outside of that sphere who are that hyped for that game. I certainly am not. The only thing it has is pretty awesomely designed environments, otherwise it felt like yet another EQ derivative. A decent one, mind you, but derivative nonetheless.

    Playing: EVE, TERA, BDO
    Played (more than 1 month): WoW, GW2, L2, WAR, AoC, DnL, GW, LotRO, EQ2, TOR, CoH, STO, TSW
    Tried (trial, up to 1 month): EQ, UO, AO, EnB, TCoS, Fury, Ryzom, EU, DDO, TR, RF, CO, Aion, VG, DN, Vindictus

     I know but after starring at it for like 3mnths i WANT TO SQUEEZE IT SO HARD IT POPS OVER 9....Do i need help lolimage

  • DamzillaDamzilla MostarPosts: 175Member Common

    To be honest, that number is not much of a measure of the quality, it's just a hype meter...Keeping that in mind, people can just put random numbers. Many people gavr it a 9 or a 10, but some gave it possibly 1 or 2... This number is not really reliable about judging any game. The reason why the number is stable is because you need to be registered to vote. Also, many votes have been cast, so it's very hard to change the current number. However, the anticipation for this game is huge, and i think that it reached this level a long time ago in this community.

     I agree with you fully just a hype meter forget weather or not the game will be a epic smash or biggest flop since swtor.....its about the hype meter how has the it not gone to 9....its a conspiracy against me I know it...........I shake my fist at you mmorpg

    If it were/had either of those, it wouldn't be GW2 however. Dynamic Events... they don't seem to play well in a sandbox. Open world PvP goes against the very core of the game. As such, it would likely have a lot lower rating being more like the rest of the pack.

    True. A 8.78 is close to 9 which means the game is very good but still not "near perfect". It's enough I think to sum up what I think of the game.

    10 is impossible because no game will EVER be the best for everyone, different opinions, different minds, different needs.

     I don't think the scale there has anything to do with the games at all I think there all hype meter..how anticpated the game is .....

    So noobs can't sort thru the 600 mmos released a day and check out some attempts at mmos that have a shopt to be decent.

    But in know way do I think it reflects on the games merits...still come on MAN HIT 9.0 FOR THE LOVE OF GOD .......I WILL SEND CHUCK NORRIS AND JACK BAUER TO MMORPG HQ IF IT DOESNT HIT 9.0 LOLimage

    Because I know it's going to be another tab-aim, instance heavy, mini-game-PvP ridden, challengeless and boring themepark.

    So I hype it a 1 :). I'm sure I'm not the only one with this opinion.

    Why do you care about the hype meter? Basicaly, most peole probably vote between 0-3 or 8-10. Fanboys vs haters. The meter is completly useless, so why do you even care if it's 8, 9, 2, whatever?

    This guy is exactly right.

    I review games subjectively. When it's just a simplle hype meter I tend to rate games I'm completely uninterested in a 1, games that look quite interesting but I'm unsure I'd play a 9, and games I'm really hyping about a 10.

    Nobody cares about the hype meter really, it's just to give people an idea of what the mainstream MMO community is anticipating the most.

    A rating system that rates games like Darkfall or even worse, Mortal Online, over 5/10 can't be taken very seriously anyway... If crap like MO gets 7/10, all AAA games should get a note over 10 to compensate.

    If you wonder why I don't answer your posts, it's most likely because you are on my block list - so don't waste your time.

    I don't know how much votes are cast for the game, but to achieve that score or nearly 9 with a big number of vote like few thousands, i don't think you understand how overwhelmingly accepted the game have to be. A single guy voting 1 weight for 10 guy voting 10 to achieve a 9 score, this is just to give you an idea, and probably most don't use 1 or 10 score.

    Since i go to this web site i have rarely seen games going over 8.3, even the most renowned ones.

  • antshock35antshock35 cumming, GAPosts: 114Member

    there have been 3278 votes cast for the game one way or another just fyi

    He's not totally wrong, the population of this site is quite biased... as I said previously, they are capable of getting crap like MO get notes up to 7/10. You can't take the hype meter or ratings of this site as representative of the general MMORPG crowd.

    You can bet that the next "sandboxish" MMO (should be archeage) will get a high note here even if it's total crap.

    completely understandable and i barely look at the hype meter because i don't let people choose my games, i am able to form my own opinion

    I don't think that's true.  GW2 has a huge appeal beyond former GW1 players.  I've never played GW1 a day in my life, but I'm super excited about GW2.  Mostly because it took everything I grew bored with in WoW and Rift and fixed it.  It's actually fun and you want other players around because you can play with them.

    Heh , at the end of the day , who cares about ratings? I mean, if you like the game you'll play it regardless of the ratings.

     Ratings are like graphics , they mean nada.
