    Another case of you over hyped urself going into the game with bigger expectations to now finally notice it is not the game you were having inside of your head.

    Nothing is wrong with you.  You are just like many others that are tired of the same ol' thing.  I don't care how you slice it, GW2 is the same ol' thing in a different wrapper.  It may have an incredibly innovative "BLEH", or a new and improved "BLAH" but when you play it you will realize you have played it before ....... for years.

     

    Like many others released in recent years it's not a bad game, it's just not a new game.  But hey, no sub fee ..... that's a definite plus.

    Maybe you did all the *new* stuff in beta and now it's just....stuff. Like others said, maybe MMO burnout.

    you're burning out brother, just play it like i do, got 3 pcs running, playing a GW2 on one while watching a good movie or series and forums etc on the others.

     It's okay to be more interested in one game than another!

    People have certain tastes.

    Feel free to come back any time you want.  It's not like GW2 is going anywhere. :D

    ^ this also i'd try a new race/class combo.. some people don't find certain race starter areas/stories as interesting as others 

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    I think people who played every beta would get bored a little faster compared to those who didn't. In my case the 'oooh factor' lasted only for first two betas. Thank God PVP is so much fun or i would also be in same boat as OP.

    Why are you even on this site hell why are you even play games at all?

    every game is the same ol thing as you put it since gaming started.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    Play TSW for a while, then play GW2 when you feel like it. As others have said, there is no sub and no rush to get to max level.

    You probably just don't feel like starting all over again if you played a lot in the BWE's and stress tests. That's the exact reason why I never got any character over level 5 during that time. I knew I would end up being burnt out when it launched if I did.

  • CalerxesCalerxes LondonMember Posts: 1,633 Uncommon

    I have a rule when playing beta's...

     

    I only play until I have decided to buy the game then I STOP and wait for launch, the game should be still fresh and interesting.

     

    Playing every beta you can and going through starter areas multiple times can make the launch feel stale. This is what could be happening. Though with GW2 I'm really only interested in the forum drama at the moment I have no desire to buy or play the game, now that weird image

    I felt the same, dude.  It's just so meh to me.  I haven't played the released version but played the beta.  I wish I could put my finger on what I don't like about it..... it's just.. something..  I think it may be the forced tempo of play.  Dunno really.

    It's cool. I remember back with GW1 I kinda just stopped altogether. But came back after 5 years and fell in love all over again. Don't worry. Like many other people here have said, no monthly sub. Take your time.

    Same. I actually went ahead and bought the game, rolled an Asura Ele and just finished all of Metrica Province. I'm still only halfway through 14...15/16 is when the next area starts. Asked around in game to see if this was normal, and the fanboi response seems to be that I need to go to the other race's starter areas and level. Zzzzzzzzzzz.... 

    The game is o.k. but it's a huge grind in pve so far. There's actually very little content within each starter area that is cleverly disguised. DE's are basically zerg fests kill Xmobs, Heart quests are long and tedious, and all the exploration things are there to fill the gap. Unfortunately it's still not enough to make up for the bad xp curve in the early game.

    This is an issue with playing in betas.  You know the areas, the quests, the systems -- nothing is new and fresh.  So it all feels "old hat".  This is why some of us don't play betas or play them *very* sparingly, just getting a taste, rather than p;laying stuff through.  The people who play stuff through generally either feel like you at launch, or just power through the stuff they already have played a couple of times as fast as they can to get to parts of the game that are new and fresh.

    I'm in the same boat. I just find the PVE so damn boring that I can't continue- and no one I know is playing sPvP yet (all focused on WvW) I think its pretty retarded that i have to PVE to do WvW effectively. so chances are I'm just not going to play at all.

    This is a complaint thats come up a few times, I get the feeling its designed that when you roll alts those XP boosts in the cashshop will look awfully tempting.

    Definitely. It's very reminiscient of LOTRO and the cash shop xp perks they have.

    Nothing is wrong with you. It's normal and the way I see it is you are not in the *right mood* to play it now.
    You know, like when you're feeling fussy and only want to watch a comedy movie on movie night etc.
