Having a blast

I just started GW2 around three weeks ago (playing a warrior), and I'm having a blast. I played WOW for around 4 years or so, and just hit a wall with it, and couldn't even bring myself to log in. Since picking up GW2 I've been having a blast leveling, crafting, exploring, and especially doing loads of PVP. I think one of the things helping me along and keeping it fun is not reading a lot of the hype or hate threads about the game, and just letting the experience take me.

    No no no, you see, in those forums you are supposed to claim that gw2 is an evil themepark that will doom itself, the genre and humanity.

     

    Other then that... I am glad you are having fun, i've yet to play gw2!

  • Yeah I'm liking it, met some cool people so far. I'm not going to say you should run out and buy it because honestly I realize that just because I like playing doesn't mean I need to try and force that on everyone else. Heck I also love playing Star Trek Online, and have had loads of fun in TOR regardless of all of the hate it's been getting. Just gotta tune the love/hate out and form your own opinion.

    avoiding both the hype and the hate is a smart way of approaching this game. I find it to be excellent, but that is because it suits my personal preference very well. Others may not. And some people just like to complain.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    3-4 weeks is cool.

     

    Let us know how you feel after 3-4 months.

    Yeah it's pretty fun especially the storylines etc..  I like how levels and gear are pretty much meaningless.  Not once did I feel like gaining a new level or gear actually made me stronger!

    I survived wow for 4 years, I'm sure I'll still be having fun with GW2 for quite some time.

    Not reading forums about an mmo is always a good idea. I actually liked my time in FF XIV until I started reading their official forums.

BUT, should you find your way over, my name is Taaz , and i have a active 500 member guild you can wet your feet in until you find one you like more. Or you can stay, like most of em do. Enjoy, in any case!

    The thing I'm looking forward to the most is hitting 80 and doing large quantities of WVW :D I'll look for you in game soon, Toxia.

    WVW is a blast at 80.  WvW is my "end game" as well since I have never been a raider, nor someone who needs to be shovel fed PVE content to make me happy.  It's just more fun going up against the "living" and using skill instead of uber gear that was recieved in some time sink raid.  I guess some PVE'ers might feel let down or not about Anet's version of endgame, but that's the same as people who only play CoD singleplayer and are left wanting more after a 5-7 hour campaign.  It's the PVP / WvW that makes this game shine. Well, for me at least.

    Every time I see the word "blast" I think that person is a paid shill...

    I even still have a blast while reading those posts ^^

    Glad you enjoy the game. Awesome indeed.

    For $50 bucks and no sub fees...I think I got a ton of value with this game.  I've been playing since launch, hit 80 a while ago but I'm still loving it.   I am looking forward to an expansion some time down the road, but meanwhile I'm keeping busy exploring the map.  After that, maybe I'll work up a crafting profession or get serious about one of my alts.

    I am playin 5 characters simultaneusly(Guardian+Elementalist+Thief+Ranger+Engineer). Started month ago. It's awesome I tell you!

    Plus to the Troll argument about not feeling more powerful as you level-you kidding right? So, by that Logic, Turquoise Ring(+14 Vit) is equally viable as an Amethyst Ring(+30 Power +15 Vit) is...

    Am I missing something?

    And I am glad that more people do what is right with this game and that would be: "Just Play!". I am also glad that you are enjoying it :D

    On the same note, every time I see somebody posting negatively about 1 game, It hink they probably post negatively about every game.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.
