Can we rename MMORPG.com to Guildwars2fansite.com?

    But its pretty much dead quiet about TSW, it's really odd imo. Or is it just my imaginary spider sense tingling (maybe its a stroke of tinnitus even image).

    Its fans who create most of the hype. Companies release videos and press blogs and rest is doen by fan. In case of TSW Funcom is playing safe and trying not to hype their game too much and some time ago TSW community decided to stick to official forums for discussion about TSW. It is a very mature community and stick to official forums mostly.

    Leave it to GW2 fans for running around and telling everyone how their game sucks compared to GW2. Since there are no official forums it is hard to contain them . lol

    Yap!

    Finally we as player get a Game which is not a "clone of [insert game name here]"

    GW2 is just the next big thing...it's called hype!  People are excited and have been excited for a while and until its released, thats mostly what your going to hear about.  What rock have you been living under....this happens all the time.  It will slowly go away after release....and then begin again with the next big thing.

    Sure, why not, change the name to whatever the flavor of the season is, makes it easier to know what game I'm trollin.....er discussing.

    And that is totally YOUR opinion. It is tiring when people speak for everyone, you certainly do not speak for me...

    yep.  It will be this way probably til' about a month after it launches, where people will then fight over whether it failed or not.  Then it'll be onto the next big thing.

    Not really. Swtor was bashed constantly from GW2 fanboys. I don't play swtor and i'm not planing to play GW2, but guild wars fans do tend to act as Twillight and Beaber fans. Even if there is a constructive thread about GW's potential weaknesses, GW fans will take it as a personal offence and act like a mob with torches. 

    It is quite funny and annoying at the same time. On the other hand, when someone writes something positive about the game it is like watching episode of my little pony.

    From pony i remember..Dark pony's signature describes the situation best... and it is already happening. For example this guy...

     Where is darkpony and his signature when you really need him?

    If renaming the site will keep you away, sure why not?

    My opinion is that if GW2 represents hope for the MMO fans then we are truly forsaken and doomed.  I see GW2 as being more of the same crap. My opinion.

    Funny thread.

    I think the pre-release praise for GW2 is a lot louder than it has been for other releases. The current overdrive of some GW2 fans certainly beats anything that the fans of other games (Tera? TSW?) manage. But I think that was to be expected: with the competitive PvP focus of GW2 it attracts many young males (young being anywhere between 15 and 35), thus there's a lot of testosterone involved. :)

    But, please, keep it that way, I sometimes read the GW2 boards, it's good entertainment.

    I maintain this List of Sandbox MMORPGs. Please post or send PM for corrections and suggestions.

    We should have changed the name to SWTORfansite.com because of all of the biased reviews and all of the non-sensical posts about how that game cured cancer and had the ability to bring people back from the dead. That's seriously all i saw constantly so welcome to my world. Then we saw post after post for months after it's release about how terrible it was and how everyone was leaving.

    I'm guessing here, but I don't think you'll find even 1 post where it's stated that SWTOR cures cancer or brings people from the dead. This makes the rest of your arguments equally suspicious and likely false. Sounds to me like a grudge you're fostering, hence the extreme and ridiculous statements.

    On topic, I like GW2 and am looking forward to it, but the extreme zealotry of some (newly?) converted hardcore GW2 fans as seen on this site is getting annoying sometimes. I notice that I start to take nothing seriously of their posts when I spot some names. Not a good thing to do, but better than getting constantly annoyed by some people's almost religious doting on and crusading for this or that game to the point of abandoning reason, logic or facts.

    I think instead of Guildwars2fansite.com it should be named:

    I agree, it's like going to fox news site to see comments under articles. Funny because of all stupidity and somewhat scary.

    It is not the same. I do know that MMORPG.com has a huge GW2 fan base and i don't have anything against that, but it is quite annoying when discussing other games and constantly seeing: "you should buy GW2, GW2 will be better" posts.

  • karmathkarmath Member Posts: 856 Uncommon

    Like every other mmo messiah before it, the constant fanboi hurrr will turn into hate a week or two after release. Its only temporary. 

  • cippalippacippalippa MilanoMember Posts: 105 Uncommon

    No i think 

    HypeOfTheMonth-MoneyB1tchFanSite.com

    is far more appropriate and nonetheless linguistically igenic. We're talking journalism boy!

    Or being constantly told you are misinformed and need to educate yourself because you have come to a slightly different conclusion.

    Could have said that a few months back when there was nothing but SWTOR posts going up. Big deal. It goes on in every forum. Tech sites were nothing more then IPAD 3 posts a few weeks back. People are always going to talk about the next big thing.

    If i remember right (and i think i do, since it was only months ago), around half of them were from GW2 fans "teaching us" why Swtor will fail and GW2 win.
