    Note the difference between the OP's criticism, versus this criticism:

    The first one repeats the words "boring" and "[not] fun," offers zero possible reason as to why (s)he feels this way, and further accuses every quest of being the same when they are not.

    Versus the second, which states personal opinion as such.

    I leave you all to draw the obvious conclusion on your own.

    The same thing that  makes every game pre release so amazing: HYPE!

  • DerpybirdDerpybird Boston, MAPosts: 991Member

    If you aren't enjoying the game, then perhaps you wish to contact ANet for a refund.

    If this doesn't fit what you're looking for (and you should know by 25) then why in the world would you force yourself to play it? This is especially true if you don't like the DE system, which only expand in scope and impact as you level.

    How you could find the events repetitive and boring is beyond me, but whatever.

    "Loading screens" are not "instances".
    Your personal efforts to troll any game will not, in fact, impact the success or failure of said game.

    What's so amazing? Are you kidding me?  Everybody wins the grand prize!  Everybody is the hero!  Everybody gets to dps, heal, and have the best gear!  Everybody gets to play a character in which not only does reputation not matter, but it doesn't even exist!

     

    Tell me what's not amazing about that!

     

    :(

    Dont take me wrong, but its easy, just dont play it :)

    So the OP was obviously a frequent poster.... but never came back to elaborate on what exactly he experienced mostly for 25 levels?  Not attacking anyone but I think that speaks for itself volumes more than any amount of counter-arguments made in this thread.

    As opposed to what?

    Keeping content and gear limited to the "select few" who can make raiding a part-time job?

    Waiting for 1-2 hours typing "LF Healer then GTG" in general chat?

    Getting your self-esteem boost by standing in a main city posing with the best of the best that drops in that tier's gear grind?

    Is that more amazing?

     If the part in red bothers you, there's no video game that's going to fix that.  May I suggest going out and dedicating all your efforts into real life, the only place where your 'character' is real, and actually exists? :)

    Also, there IS a prize that matters in GW2... the cash prizes for the tournaments.  Not everybody will get those.  In fact, hardly anybody will.  They count towards real life (Look, real money!), and they're significantly rarer than the 'rare sword' from any other RPG.

    I can't think of any other MMORPG offhand where anything you do counts towards RL, or is that level of difficult to achieve. :(

    Well, hate to do it but... Project Entropia, city of steam, D3(since mmorpg.com classifies it as an mmo. Lots of people made/making money off RMAH)...

    Another one who confuses renown hearts with actual events -_-

    Why oh why did you put the hearts in Anet???

    Because then people would be complaining that they just ran around and didn't find any "quests" to do and they quit in the first 10 minutes?

    Or they ran around and got killed in a level 8 DE at level 3 and then quit because it was too hard?

    I kind of agree, the biggest problem being people are simply playing the game incorrectly. They should have a huge disclaimer NPC saying that "hearts are not DE/real content" or something at the beginning of the game :P

    There is a reason I am not playing D3, any modern realism shooters, final fantasy whatever it's upto, Saints Row, Hitman, Civ V

    Popular does not mean I am going to play it. Just because other people enjoy it does not mean I will. 

    Play for fun. Play to win. Play for perfection. Play with friends. Play in another world. Why do you play?

  • IsawaIsawa Middle 0 Nowhere, ORPosts: 1,051Member Uncommon

    Being able to go off exploring and have quests pop up on you is a feature I really enjoy. I like exploring and seeing all the details put into the game.

    At lvl 25 and asking though, I'd say don't play. Further than I got, but I went with each race offered through their starting zone.

  • MothanosMothanos MordorPosts: 1,909Member Uncommon

    Dunno but i get that feeling if i play GW2 like i had in the old days with Zelda / Metroid / Tomb Raider / Final Fantasy.

    For me tthats the sign and ingidients for a super game.

    To each his own offcourse, but that feeling only comes with 10/10 games, as 200 other mmo's and games dint wake that feeling.

    its something you can explain in words :P good games do something special with the mind.

  • dageezadageeza london, KYPosts: 578Member

    Seriously?

    Gamers that like the following may find GW2 boring..

    Lowbie ganking in the open world..

    Disruptive PvP in the open world..

    Hey look at me being an E-peen killing lowbies in the open world..

    Rogue classes with a lot of stealth and or invisibility..

    And the ability to stun lock..

    Player ran world (as long as its them running things)..

    For most normal players GW2 will rightfully come off as anything from a well made decent game to the second coming..

    Playing GW2..

  • ButregenyoButregenyo IstanbulPosts: 483Member Uncommon

    I bet OP didnt even play the game, just here to troll. If you find GW2 boring, MMOs are really not for you, because rest of the MMOs out on the market right now is extremely cheesy compared to GW2 in every aspect.

    I wonder, if you say questing is boring in Guild Wars 2 which MMO has non-boring quests.... or non-boring combat.

    Personally I love the combat,story,questing,pvp well everything. There should be a post with the opposite question:

    "What is NOT so amazing with this game?" you'll be hard pressed to find anything

    Block the trolls, don't answer them, so we can remove the garbage from these forums

     Sounds like you should do same as I'm considdering, choose a game where you need to be skilled in your head, and not hyperactively pushing 5 different buttoms on the keyboard and rotating the mouse. Might get very boring fast for midle aged people like us:-)"

    i am 31 right now and dont care that i will not be the best in the world. it still is great game for anybody. besides, dont underestimate your brain value in this game. smart people can win a lot. for example, when 70% people played IWAY build in guildwars1, i created setup to counter IWAY, at least took 3 skills that worked great vs them. this way we had great advantage from the very beginning entering hall of heroes

    Playing: Rohan
    Played (from best to worst): Shadowbane, Guild Wars, Shayia, Age of Conan, Warhammer, Runes of Magic, Rappelz, Archlord, Knight online, King of Kings, Kal online, Last chaos

    This game is very innovative, polished and has many little things that make the gaming experience enjoyable and interesting.

    However, if you're burned out on fantasy setting (I know many people including myself are), it will seriously reduce the fun factor by a lot. My 2 cents.

  • CaldrinCaldrin CwmbranPosts: 4,505Member Uncommon

    @OP

    There is nothing really amazing or nothing really ground braking about this game. Saying that its a very solid fantasty themepark MMORPG that has its own twist for certain things. At least when i was testing in open beta everything seemed solid enough... I did come accross some uber boring quests like collect 50 feathers and place them on these alter type things.. but most quests are go kill those and go collect those.. so really its just a very well polished themepark MMORPG with an instant level button for PVP so the want it now kiddies will be happy.. The WvWvW pvp was the stand out thing for me in this game.

    So if your looking for a well polished fantasy themepark MMORPG then GW2 is worth a look. Be advised that there is a cash shop with items you will want to buy.. not need to but will want to.. they have to make money some way :)

     

    Im burnt out on Fantasy MMORPGs so i got bored very very very fast as i had seen it all before..

    I'd love to know what games you guys have been playing that has allowed you to "see it all before" 10 years playing MMOs (mostly fantasy, in fact) and GW2 managed to surprise me at every turn from the macro look at things (no holy trinity, no quest hubs, return to exploration, finally enormous live capital cities, fun dynamic combat) to the micro (world and mechanics details, town clothes, not the usual skills, anyone can revive, and much more.) 

    Perhaps people mean it's a fantasy setting, so you necessarily have "see it all before?" Bit of a strange concept for me, I love fantasy books for example and although of course they all share some similiarities (there's a hero and most often companions, there's good and evil, there's usually magic of some sort, and it's a fantasy world) I wouldn't say that every time I pick up a new book I think "I've seen it all before."

    For me it's just the complete experience i got from playing the game.
    Some MMORPG's hang themselves up one something catchy like action combat and then
    lack in many other aspects.

     

    I really like the design of the game. For me the graphics look just beautiful and
    the world feels very alive and i especially enjoy the love for little details and
    that the loads of humor spread here and there just make the world feel complete
    and similar to games like Skyrim in that regard.

     

    On the other hand it offers a big variety for all kinds of players. I especially like
    that the sPVP part is completely shut off from PVE influences like equipment.
    WvW seems really fun if you have a few friends to do some stuff in there or a bigger
    guild for more coordinates gameplay.

     

    The main thing is that it took me a few hours to get into it since some things where
    quite confusing at the beginning even after reading alot of stuff beforehand.
    Also if you want to rush things you probably won't enjoy the game. I'm usually
    the type of guy that likes to rush games to max level and stuff but GW2 is probably
    the first MMORPG where i want to take my time, explore everything, read some of the
    lore and stuff like that.

     

    Also it seemed very polished, there where bugs here and there but mostly minor stuff
    like sound bugs, smaller glitches and so on but in return there are so many neat
    features like chat/guilds/party being server overarching, no monthly fees, no waiting
    in line to get to play, very party friendly game design, nice side activities such
    as hidden content, jumping puzzles and mini games.

    So thats it for me it's probably the most polished and feature rich MMORPG that i saw
    releasing in the past year.

     


    PS. Why do people keep shouting that renown hearts are not "real" content?
    There are like 500+ of them ingame and they make up a great portion of the PVE
    experience. I can understand if people say that dynamic events are more engaging
    and fun to play.

    Well honestly it's a point of view. Some people cannot see the novelty in anything, everyday is the same for them over and over again and nothing ever change. Some people will make a different dish of pasta every day even though it's a dish of pasta every day. I guess it's a question of curiosity and an ability to go inside things and spot the details. And people that are straight out negative will always claim that "it's the same crap" anyway.
