    This ^ the biggest advertising for a product is word of mouth and  our glorious trolls do a fine job at spreading it

    No he's not. He's baiting. If he would want to express his opinion he would actually bother to form one, provide some arguments and most likely use one of 100 other, similar threads that are alredy going on. 

    When someone just creates a thread only to say "Your game choice sucks. Mine is better." it pretty much is trolling. It applies to every game and every forum. There isin't really much of so called disucssion value in here. Might as well argue about superriority of cake versus pie. 

    ^^ This

    There are ways to express an opinion and the OP isn't doing it the proper way.

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

If the OP was serious, then that's worse!  Calling someone a troll is actually like giving somebody the benefit of the doubt. I just think you GW2 fans need to take some meds to calm down, it doesn't hurt you that someone doesn't share your view of what is in your eyes, gods gift to gamers. Calm down yourself.  Most of us think silly posts like the OP's are hilarious, we aren't hurt.
     
    Why is it worse if he's serious? Because you think his opinion is wrong, and it hurts you?

    PieRad, why are you trying so hard to make that last line of your signature apply to you?

Reagardless of what you think, the only lucartive 3D mmo on the market is "WOW."  Graphics are great when you first see them, but after a week, it's old hat. Gameplay and stratagies are what people are looking for in a PVP or PVE battle mmo. This is what is making "League Of Legends" the power house it is right now and only geeting larger. 

    ya man I totally agree.

    But I am gonna play the heck out of this most unoriginal wow-clone <3.

    Looking forward to EQL and EQN.

    (hint, OP : GW2's biggest interest is about bringing new gameplay mechanics & strategies, lol)

    Some fanbois cant even fathom their game losing a few subscribers and those that do resort to silly troll posts.  At least Tera fans, SWTOR fans and TSW fans at last try to debate the facts but with WoW fans they resort to making shit up.

    Because of the title of the thread I'd guess. It's a trolling title. Also I dont get this "He's entitled to his opinion but no-one else is, if you express a negative opinion you should take meds". Is only the OP entitled to his opinion in your eyes? Me I mostly reacted to his bad attempt of trolling.

     

    For the record: I will be playing both WoW and GW2 so I'm not a crazy fanboy. (Apparently this is the get-out-of-jail card, since you're then able to label any post as fanboy posts)

    It must be a troll post.

    The OP is wrong about the game being the most unoriginal. I can think of loads of RTS & FPS that could take that crown.

    However, it's not the most original game ever. Looks fun though.

    This. The OP is clearly flamebaiting. But that is not uncommon on these forums. Right now you see a lot of people trolling GW2 just for lolz and you see a lot of GW2 fans trolling WoW for lolz.This thread is pretty much like the 1m threads where someone gets bored of praising GW2 all day and goes to the WoW forums writing something along the lines " your game sucks, GW2 owns and I are a supperior human being because of this! + You are a kidz!"

    Mission in life: Vanquish all MMORPG.com trolls - especially TESO, WOW and GW2 trolls.

    With the number of troll threads, and the extra interest they generate, i'd say sales are up at least 25% thanks to them. So, thank you again for contributing :)

    I will be playing GW2, I'm not as excited as many of you are, but I will give it a shot.. (So you see, I'm not a hater, or WoW fanboy)

     

    I just think you GW2 fans need to take some meds to calm down, it doesn't hurt you that someone doesn't share your view of what is in your eyes, gods gift to gamers.

    TC, most folks here have a difficult time with the actual definition of "troll", what makes you think they'll get "sockpuppet"?

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    It is kinda of a get-out-of-jail card, since if you don't incl. that in your post, you'll be met with meaningless responses like the OP, "Troll", instead of discussion.

    [mod edit]

    Just because OP didn't follow what you guys appearently think is a correct way to put up negatives to discuss, doesn't mean you can't discuss OP's points in a civil manner, instead of just dismissing it with "Troll", or just leave the thread all together.

     

    You could discuss why YOU think GW2 is original, why it got tactics involved etc. etc.

     

    But he is very much entitled to think GW2 is the biggest turd to ever come out of the gaming industry, if he wants.

    No one on the internet is entitled to an opinion by the looks of it. People start insulting other people who don't share their opinion. Soooo what we end up are mostly personal insults and complete dismissal of the opinions of others. There is no real discussion just random poeple stating their random opinions yet no one is influenced by anyone else.

    Title of the thread: "Guild Wars 2, the most unoriginal game ever." <- That's not an opinion, that's trolling. It's actually a fact that the game is not "most unoriginal game ever", there's been many games that everyone calls for example "a wow clone", but even the haters dont call GW2 a "wow clone", that alone proves that surely it's not the most unoriginal game ever?

     

    Also League of Legends is not an MMO, just felt like pointing that out since the OP seems to think it has any relevance with GW2's launch perhaps.

    So everyone is entitled to an opinion, and we shouldn't post negative comments in response to the op? Yet, our negative comments are our opinions, which we, according to you, are entitled to. So you post negative comments in response to our opinions, in which you state that everyone is entitled to an opinion, while also saying that we shouldn't post our opinion? So is everyone entitled to their opinion, or just you and the op?
    Is that it? A bit hypocritical isn't it?

    The problem with the OP is he doesn't have ANY POINTS.

    He says GW2 is unoriginal, if you made a post expressing your own opinion about why you think it is original, then you got a discussion, or why you think GW2 does have good gameplay and strategies.

    Simple really.

    So you find it "proper" to go on other game's forums and start posting "this game is unoriginal"? That's your idea of a discussion?
