    I was never really interested in GW1, tried it again a couple of month ago and it was still "meh" to me. It's not a MMORPG.

    So the answer to your question would be "no" for me.

    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.

    Well I'm almost done with playing GW1...almost 50/50 and almost GWAMM

    If I have those achievements what else is there to do?

     

    I bet that at GW2 launch you won't find enough ppl to do JQ,FA or GvG...Pve will still be very much accesible...

    Didn't like GW1 too much during it's prime time so I only played it for short time. Bought Nightfall and EotN shortly after GW2 BWE1 to unlock some HoM points, getting close to being able to craft a destroyer bow which would bring my total to 16 points and I probably won't play it much after that because I still don't like the game enough to keep me playing when GW2 is out.

    I haven't really touched the game after getting 30/50 hom on second account. I played since a few months after launch, and now I'm at the point where I've done everything there is to do, and bored with the game. Not bored in a bad way though,I still feel it's a great game, but feel like I've finished it, played enough. :)

    I do usually hop back for the holiday events though, and would guess a lot do the same, even after gw2 launches.

    Nah, ~2500 hours of GW1 are about as much as I can stomach. Love the game, but I can play it only for so long.

    I was never that impressed with GW1. Probably because I never really understood what was going on. I'll keep it installed and will probably look in every now and then but it's not a game I put much time into and I don't see that changing.

    i wont uninstall it from my PC that's for sure
    i plan to log in every holiday event though, esp to get missed holiday hats/masks

    I won't unistall GW1 either. When nostalgia settles in I will visit Tyria 250 years in the past.

    No clue, we will just have to wait and see. Not this autumn though, that time is dedicated GW2 time.

    I stopped playing GW several months ago. Since I've achieved what I wanted to for GW2, I don't see myself coming back at all.

  • ZenonSethZenonSeth Tempe, CAPosts: 128Member
    I spent a lot of time on the game between 2006-2008.
    Since then I've kind of stopped playing it. Every now and then I login for nostalgia's sake, but being already familiar with most game mechanics, it doesn't hold my attention at all.

    So no I won't keep on playing it since I've already kind of stopped.
    I don't even care about the hall of monuments enough. It's just not worth me going back and grinding for days for some crap achievement.

    On second thought: I would still play the extend content of Guild Wars: Beyond when they update it

    Only play gw1 now to help out guildies or clear out storage for guild giveaways.

    Will I play gw1 on my own after gw2 lounch? Nope!

    But I might go do FoWSC or any other SC if we make a guild event out of that.

  • DeolusDeolus DoncasterPosts: 392Member

    Only played just over 300 hrs now and still a lot to do so will play up to GW2 release at least.

    Still need to be able to link my GW1 account to my GW2 account for the HoM achievements so until they give us a way to do that I don't feel any great incentive to play as much as I could.

    It may be hard to abruptly stop logging in after so many years. It'll take a while but gradually as I play GW2 longer my GW1 playtime will decrease to just holiday/event visits.

    I didn't care for GW1 when it came out. Being so heavily instanced made me not play it. It's a well done game and it shows its age now, but it's not for me. I only bought it after GW2 first beta weekend, so that I could unlock items for GW2 from the Hall of Monuments. I have my 30/50 now so I doubt I ever touch the game again.

    Ya I kinda hate the game. I know my wife and I don't could at least to the HoM. But I dislike it so much I won't spend a few weeks to do that. GW2 here I come.

    I've played GW1 to death. I probably won't play it again whether I stick with GW2 or not. Clocked up well over 1500 hours though. I class it as the second best online RPG I've ever played (Asheron's Call being the first).

    GW1 and GW2 are very different games though. I'd even go as far as saying that the hardcore crowd in GW1 probably won't like GW2 long term at all.

    My interest in GW1 started to decline last year around May.

    Still log in from time to time but the PvE isn't challenging anymore, even on the untweaked account.

    10000 hours is quite a good return for the money invested.

    I'm "playing" Guild Wars right now, with my toon in Presearing.  I'm going to get that toon LDoA the original way ... by death leveling.  Another hour or so and I will start killing those leveled up Charr.  Then I'll roll a Charr (Guardian I believe) at the start when Guild Wars 2 rolls around at the end of August.  :p

     

    As far as after Guild Wars 2 launches, I will probably fire up Guild Wars now and then for nostalgia's sake.

     

    Best regards.
