    Will await the free trail though, pretty excited for this game.

     

    But it doesn't seem like a world.

    More like any other mmorpg these days with quests, no player housing only done much better.

    I'm afraid I will find the game to restricting, even with random events and what not and exploring.

    I like to set my own goals and more importantly have lots of options to make them happen and not do what the game tells me to do.

    If there is a thing that this game does well is looking like a living world.

    I meant it more like something you live in. So gameplay wise (player content) instead of atmosphere.

    SWG I considered a world (player content). WOW most certainly not. (no player content)

    I haven't read much about crafting and how the economy is being handled and how many options you have in pvp (and pve) so I hope I'm wrong.

    There are things on that list that don't make me like GW2 more, but the good outweight the negative for me.

     

    Bag space. Its pretty limited, but you can make it bigger with cash or buy gems with ingame money.

    range vs melee. Yeah melee is weaker, but every class can range fight and melee is useful at times (just not all the time).

    Armor repair. Yeah it would be nice if you could repair at any merchant.

    100 slots once you get 20 slot bags, that you can craft...

    And stacks can contain 250 items (including materials) and can be sent to bank from anywhere...

    Lol,

    This whole thread just seemed like a lot of hot air-

    Most of what I seen and heard was more or less opinion. ( Its funny how people fight over opinions)

     

    But I still agree the thread name should be changed, even if its just a copy from another site.

    This...OP pretty much admitted this thread was for the lulz a few pages in. However you get your kicks eh mate.

    What I find hilarious about these threads is that this is basically SWTOR all over again.  Everyone has decided, for the moment, that GW2 will be the best game they have ever played.  They did the same thing for TOR.  If you say something negative, they climb down your throat.

    I should start listing names of well-known people on these forums that thought TOR was the next Jesus, and bashed all things GW2, and are now here hanging off GW2 nuts in the same fashion.

    I won't though, because it's quite amusing to watch all of this (again, and again) with each new game release.

    A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

    Those so snug and smug in their current clone games will eventually learn to love GW2 or they can stay in whatever clone game they are in and be alone as their guilds players start shifting to GW2 first slowly and then at full charge..

    The revolution hasnt even began yet but as we stand on the hill preparing to do battle and looking down upon them we could see that the $15 a month rent a clone industries knees are buckling already as they prepare a white flag plan to surrender to freemium rather than stand and fight..

     

    Playing GW2..

    I don't think guild wars 2 will be a revolution. But if the game is successful, I do think the cash shop will be revolutionary. I mean a lot of games are going f2p because they were greedy and thought they could milk their consumers, but if you do a b2p with a cash shop, it probably would be more successful like Swtor.

    I'd pretty strongly disagree with you that GW2 is just like SWTOR.  I brought two characters up to 50 in SWTOR, and raided for a time, but even in the first few levels I had a very bad feeling about the engine and many of their design choices.  I get no such feeling from now having played all of the beta weekends and stress tests for GW2.   SWTOR felt like a lobby based game where you loaded up levels (planets) to play them.  GW2 feels like a new, vibrant world.

    I think the key difference is that people came to SWTOR hoping that it would be 1, a solid game, and 2. an original feeling mmo.  I remember pre-release, it seemed like the space combat and the story driven universe could offer that -- but in the end, the design and lack of content just doomed it I think.  Which is a shame, because there were many things which SWTOR did very well.  

    I don't think GW2 is going to be the answer for everyone looking for a new game.  The lack of traditional endgame still is a big unknown, but I would say that after playing for about 7 days total, it's so much more promising than SWTOR ever was.

    If you actually watch the video you can clearly see they're obviously fans of GW2 just covering some points why some people might not like it.  They arent bashing the game by any means, the title was just trollbait or something hah.

  • arjiarji AthensPosts: 93Member

    WTF!!! Are these the reasons NOT to play ?

     

    I might not understand well but it;s like they asvertise it! LOL.

    I watched until 25 min and some of the things they said was:

    --You have to learn how to dodge and get used to it

    --Mobs can dodge, so they wondered if the opponent was an enemy player or a real mob.

    --You can play as melee and as ranged and its something that u get used to it.

    --After GW2 they couldnt play another game.

    --The point that even if you can tab enemies and hit multiple of them(with action oriented element) was great

    --They never saw an advertisment from arenanert The game became known from players.

     

    Really this is until 25th min they might telling something negative after this. But so far seems like " Why to PLAY GW2" and not "Why NOT to play gw2".

    If i have time ill watch the rest

    I knew it... Someone posted a full documentary explaining why GW2 is not going to change the world and the Hype Train is way too fast to be put into a full stop right now... Look at the comments that everyone replied to the OP... Derogatory for the most part...

    I bet that everyone trashing is going to post different stuff by the end of October... When the train finally derail down the hill...

    [mod edit]

    The communities are garbage and game companies know it, that is why they exploit human psychology flaws... Like the Hype Train!!!!

    Cash Shop
    High Adjustment Curve
    No Raids
    No World PvP

    No Faction Tension
    No Gear Dependency
    It isn't WoW

    Too much Hype
    Kitty Power

     

     

    sounds pretty good to me. when are the negative arguments starting again?

    guess they just made a typo, this vid was supposed to be named "why you will love Guild Wars 2"

     

    uh and btw, World of Warcraft has a Cash Shop too. doubt you guys actually realized that in your try to argument why we like something or not :P

    "believe me, mike.. i calculated the odds of this working against the odds that i was doing something incredibly stupid… and i did it anyway!"

    Why you WON'T like Guild Wars 2 (pod cast)

     


    Topics in chronological order.

    0:00 - Intro                                                                                    All MMO's don't have intros?
    1:00 - Topic announcement                   The topic announcement was that they didn't like it because its not out yet?
    2:10 - Not a learning curve, it's an adjustment curve   Learning is evil?
    3:15 - Dodge Mechanic and hectic combat    This is more realistic, if they hit you irl you get hit if you move out of range they miss? This is a very bad Mechanic 
    8:11 - Binding Dodge vs. double-tap V is a very hard button to use for dodge aparently?
    9:29 - Ranged vs. melee I had no problem on my guardian with this might because im super pro?
    12:50 - Kitty Power IF pandas aren't an issue why are chars?
    13:35 - Targeting, mob dodging 
    16:15 - No 1st-person camera sorry no easy mode jump puzzles 4 U
    18:05 - GW2 has made other games seem sucky Hype 1
    18:50 - Hype-train Hype 2
    21:20 - GW1 vs. GW2, Lore shifts No game has done this right to date, the game creater always has last say over the writer
    24:50 - More kitty Really again?
    25:44 - Hype, The Rapture Hype 3
    27:00 - Mounts Biggest suggestion tread in the gw2 forums was people wanted 1:1 ratio speed mounts that are customizable with different animals per race bassed on size changes.
    31:00 - Allied with everybody, no open world PvP I agree with this a little
    38:10 - Queuing System all it needs is a afk kick timer to fix this.
    41:00 - Eternal Battlegrounds vs. borderlands just a way to get more people in WvW
    42:00 - Skill-based vs. equipment/class-based just like in rl there is no omega sword and armor that blocks everything.
    45:55 - No "specs" like healer or tanks We mmust have plaid different games, because it does give certain classes the ability to pump healing.
    50:24 - No addons Thank GOD
    54:15 - Smooth Jazz with Tristia not even sure why its on this?
    58:23 - No Fishing Pretty sure I harpooned fish old school style for cooking dyes.
    1:00:50 - Different learning curves for professions just like every mmo
    1:03:04 - Endgame Everyone is confused about this noone has made it to endgame to see.
    1:05:40 - Orr this is just a personal feeling blah blah thing
    1:07:49 - Player housing I want player housing aswell
    1:10:05 - Leveling speed Lvlings different in every mmo, with the delvls in areas i dont see a problem personally.
    1:12:50 - "Like WoW" ... "Like GW2" .. Attack of the Clones Every AAA ever gets compaired to wow been thier done that.
    1:14:45 - WvW loot, bag space I made more boxes with blacksmithing so not a problem for me
    1:17:37 - Armor repair I personally like this feature.
    1:19:01 - No player-player trading YAY NO GOLD BEGGING
    1:22:29 - Amount of skills Dont blame gw2 cause you bought a mouse/keyboard for 100 skills at a time.
    1:25:15 - PvP matches WoW comparison 15+
    1:27:33 - Matchmaking based on rank WvW has matchmaking based on overall rank so ??????
    1:28:34 - Character slots WoW had 1 char slot per class just like swtor so i can see why he wants more.
    1:30:40 - Guild interface Hes just made because he cant be somones overlord
    1:31:50 - Cash shop Every MMO has or plans to have a cash shop atm so i dont see the problem here?

    1:36:00 - Pre-show They talk about themselves for thier fans for the rest of the time why they seriously talk about thier penis??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Anything positive that they could have said was ruined by comparing it to WoW over 20 times and talking super perverted at the end. It was a disgusting experience.

    If anyone cared to listen, it was clearly made by players who love the game, and are trying to come up with some reason, any reason at all, why other players may not like the game.

    This knee-jerk reaction to dissenting opinion needs to be checked at the door.
