Will an old school WoW twink like this game?

I can't play WoW anymore.  So bad.  Such a tread mill.  Empty worlds.  

Is GW2 for a ganker like me?

    No, not at all. The playing field is too level.

    Try age of wushu they allow ganking anywhere. Also for a good ol' fun time you can be the jerk that disrupts my FREAKING TP every morning.

    Well, you can make quite a girly looking male character. I think this game is perfect for a twink, OP.

    I'll say "yes" just to get you, and people like you, out of WoW.

    I don't mean being an OP twink, I meant more like is it an endless treadmill of quests, dailies and rep building or can you jump in and start fighting?  I only played 19 and 29 twinks (pre BOA) because i wasn't into leveling or raiding.  I made my twinks from blues I bought on the AH and had few enchants.  Thats what I mean by twinking.  I was never a level 19 with 2000 health and 60% dodge.

    Well...

     

    You can start a level 1 character and start PvPing in structured PvP right away. They boost you to 80 the second you enter the sPvP area. sPvP is basically like battlegrounds. You get to choose your skills/gear/everything and get to jump in right away. They have this team tounament system where you can join up for 3 rounds of single elimination until there is a winning team. I don't really even do random sPvP anymore.

     

    It also has WvW. WvW is a group of 4 large instanced maps where you fight against 2 other servers. In WvW, it takes your PvE level and gear into account and then bolsters you to 80. You get a higher health pool and your stats are scaled, but Exotic geared (top gear) level 80s will still have a pretty strong advantage.

     

    That's a quick sum up of what to expect if you are interested. There really is no way to "twink" a la WoW. Even in WoW, they separated the people that stopped their XP a while back. The new twinks are BoA gear stacked characters that just keep rerolling.

    FUNNY... so far it looks like only you and I know the actual definition of TWINK. *shakes head* It's why I never used the word ever when I played a game, makes people look stupid as hell if you ask me. I mean, find another word or just use simply OP, (overpowered).  Really. 

    Just so everyone else reading can know and fit in, here is the wikipedia definition....

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twink_(gay_slang)

    "Twink" is a gay slang term describing a young or young-looking gay man with a slender, ectomorph build, little or no body hair, and no facial hair[4][5] In some societies, the term chick or chicken is preferred.[6] The related term twinkle-toes, which implies that a man is effeminate, tends to be used in a derogatory manner.[7] The terms can be complimentary or pejorative.[8][9]

    It's not an endless trek of quests, but it's there. You can choose to do daily activities or dungeons. What specifically are you looking for?

  • Lovely_LalyLovely_Laly genevaPosts: 734Member

    as old WoW player you'll suffer from limited content, repetitive activities (Dynamic Events), noob PvP and pretty pointless WvW.
    crafting will simply drive you mad. =D
    only challenge you can have so far is keep a life at any dungeon as they broke 2x3 system and now every one is for himself.

    oh yes! you gonna love this game is you are fun of JUMP, just keep push W+space bar = for the win!
    seems like cheap console joke, but seems to be truth...

    sure you'll like graphic work, but similar you can look for free at AION or TERA (can't decide which is better), I go there, admire graphics and think about past gaming fun...

    By the way, some "old school" people like Aion, so look it may be as it free anyhow.
    And similar style but challenging and high quality game is LoTRO (keep in mind you need to pay 9$ time to time to have full content).

    GW2 is very bad game for hard core player, it's great only if you have limited time and enjoy just to have something to play for free.

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
    Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    I would say purchase the game and try it out.  The pvp is pretty fun and sort of becoming more balanced.  Roll a thief - you'll find they are stronger then the Rogue was in WoW, especially with the stealth mechanics in GW2.

    Yeah lots of people enjoy the pet battles and collecting pets. 

    But Blizzard haters are gonna hate no matter what.

    Man, addressing the title and a few posts that use the word twink... i just never got it. I know its been in mmorpg term usage for a while now but does anyone know how long its been used as another term? Google the word twink once and then tell me how in the world the word twink was a good idea for an mmorpg term.

    Funny, Borecraft has always been repetitive and has by far the worst pvp created. You Jump in borecraft too, most "nubs" do this same exact thing since they truly have no idea of how to pvp. (Yeah, most of you already know I played that game long ago, not for the bandwagon crap is it now, but when Blizzard cared for the games they created). People can continue to dislike GW2, it's clear that the wowwers need to throw steam off from their own pile of crap.

    To the OP, I'm not going to say this in a sugar coated way or even with jimmies, You have played a game where you followed that carrot. Everything in that game has and will always be handed to you. I'm not saying GW2 is a complete challenge, however, what it does it does well. Like another poster already said, check it out for yourself. Clearly, you honestly can not go by anyone's opinion since you'll get quite a twisted outcome.

     Easily one of the worst pvp games, without a doubt.

    That's a nice definition you've grabbed off Wiki.. So where's the definition of 'Twink" in gaming?

    Cause that only means someone stopping at threshold of level scale (i.e 1-9, 10-19, 20-29. Twinks in gaming are those like to get to level "29" and then stopping their XP progress so that they can get all the best gear in that level range to top out the character..

    Seemingly a twink can increase their power to the point of actually being more powerful than avg 29 and just as strong as someone possible a few levels past..

    PM before you report at least or you could just block.

    On Urban Dictionary, where all slang lives. Plenty of references there, not just the one I'm quoting.

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=twink

    twink     2445 up, 1490 down
        
    In an MMORPG, a veteran player who makes a new character and gives a bunch of top-shelf equipment from their older, maxed-out characters to the new character.
    Hey, someone is hunting fire beetles in full rubicite armor. He must be a twink.

    WvW is a gank fest but i doubt you'll find many there while on off hours.

    If you like twinking to get into the action quiker then GW2 is the answer your looking for.  You can level up to 80 in a weekend and get full exotic geared by jsut spending about $50 on the gems and converting them into gold.  After that then you can level up all 8 professions to 400 (which will get you to 80) for around 30ish gold and use the rest of the gold to buy you a full suit of exotic weapons/armor and a set of yellow jewlery.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    There are no old school WOW style “twink” equivalents in GW2 thanks to the way they handle PVP and gear. Everyone is adjusted to the same level, with the same restrictions, and can select equivalent gear. In WvWvW there are opportunities for ganking but you will not succeed as a would be lone wolf on the battlefield. Balance is a work in progress and there are still some class power bugs. PVP is a part of the game with some e-spot sensibilities to be enjoyed with everything else on tap rather than exclusively.
