    Ha I did the same. . I played about 10 minutes and then logged out and played the Salem beta.  I could likely get by with beta testing and free week-ends  etc. and never buy a game again.

     

    OP you will pick it up later when you don't feel pressured to enjoy it as much as you expected and you will have fun. . the bonus of no sub.

    Already posted this but I logged in for about 2 minutes, remembered how I really didn't enjoy the game throughout beta, logged out and played Lotro with a friend for about 3 hours having a decent amount of fun.

     

    I still actually enjoy TSW too but it's a different sort of game and a nice contrast to something like Lotro. I am completely ok with waiting a few months to see where GW2 is headed and perhaps try it again down the road. I have zero interest in playing it right now. I am actually more excited about RoR expansion for Lotro to be honest.

    You stay sassy!

    Playing every beta you can and going through starter areas multiple times can make the launch feel stale. This is what could be happening. Though with GW2 I'm really only interested in the forum drama at the moment I have no desire to buy or play the game, now that weird image

    I found this to be the case for me, burnt myself out in betas and stopped playing them.

    But like you, my interest in this title is missing, actually preparing to return to EVE in fact. 

    At the end of the day, GW2 is yet another iteration/refinement of the standard path kicked off by WOW and not anything like the games I really want to play.

    Oh well, there's always Archeage on the horizon, in the meantime back to past I think.

     

     

    In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.

    I pre-purchased GW 2 the day they announced.  And I've NEVER even once acutally logged into the game world.  I went as far as the character creation screen then that's it.  Believe me, there were few times I really wanted to just get in but I held myself back until last night.  I knew if I went in then come launch day, it's not gonna be the same any more.  And I'm glad that held back.  Last night was great, seeing the new GW world for the first time.

    If you've been playing since the first beta all the way till the last stress test.  Then of course the game is not new to you any more.  You already know what to do, where to go, it's gonna be repetitive to you.  Depending on how far you've gone during the beta tests, let's hope you didn't go too too far.  Then maybe you just need to more through the familar areas and vernture out to the unknow.  And then you might get the excitment back.

    Like many others released in recent years it's not a bad game, it's just not a new game.  But hey, no sub fee ..... that's a definite plus.

    its not the same old same old that he is tired of .. its all mmos in general. well ya,. same old same old. so i guess its time to play shooter ? idunno

    I will agree that GW2 is an MMO but honestly I'CEO sat through hours and mf HOURS of WoW, rose online, maplestory, cabal online, flyff, c9, and diablo 3, and I must say that this is the best MMO that I've played in a while. It may feel repetitive but its extremely less repetitve and you don't have to grind for endless hours to participate in end game PVP. To top all this off there's no monthly sub, and maybe an expansion every 6 months - year, so you can hate it now and come back 5 years later and love it. Just imo.

    You can can back anytime...no sub no worries. Frankly I think it is awesome....

    I'm glad to hear someone else say it.  The same thing happened to me on the second beta weekend event.  I loved the first one, I only played a couple of hours in the second one, about five minutes in the third then cancelled my preorder.

    Was thinking I was just burned out at the time, but my friend went out and bought it last night, played for a few hours and told me this morning he didn't like it and won't be playing.

    I still am thinking about picking it up at some point, Iove the concept of no gear grind/ skill based pvp ala DAoC.  There is just something about it I'm not digging at this point.

    I'm in the same boat. I can't seem to find a class that I like. It's probably the combat system. I'm totally underwhelmed. I'm trying to like that game but somehow, I can't... :/

    The main problem is that you have only 5 skills per weapon. For example My lvl 5 guardian has all greatsword skills unlocked. And I'll use those same 5 skills for the next 75 levels if I use the GS.

    Same here! Tomany good games out there right now. Currently enjoying The Secret World. Will get to GW2 later :)
  • nickster29nickster29 Holmen, WIPosts: 486Member

    This is the exact reason I didn't play in any of the weekend beta events, I didn't want to spoil any of the surprise.  I enjoyed Guild Wars so I fully expect to enjoy Guild Wars 2.  Guess I will know more on Tuesday after work.

    yep. Thought so. I and many other predicted that threads like this would be popping up all over the place. We salute you Mods for having to deal with this while the rest of us who usually handle it are enjoying the game. I just stopped in here because i was curious. :) back to enjoying the best mmo ever.

    maybe you just bored of it. I get like that while playing and go to sleep.  wake up and refreashed to play for hours again.

    Also I would suggest avoiding WvW from time to time, because it can get boring fast if losing or running back to fights a lot.

    If you feel the need to hold back in betas and such i question the longevity of the product in the first place.

    Why put off today when tomorrow may never come?

    You are approaching the game wrong. 

    Log back in focusing on the population of the game and you will be back on track.

    One of the things I noticed right away, I've been blowing through the conversations just to get on with things.  The extreme level of hand holding means I don't need any info the NPC's might have.  Something that did not happen at all with TSW.  But, the dialogue was more interesting there as well.  I know I will play GW2 off and on for the variety.  So far today, I've played it, TSW and even some Gran Turismo 5 on the PS3.

    curious as to which MMO you find has fun PVE

    none lol, none at all

    Why would the mods have to "deal" with people's opinions, also why do you think you need to discredit them if you weren't playing the game?

    It's a spin on the old argument when more and more unpopular posts start to emerge, the staunch defenders need a "reason" for the majority support of the OP's opinion and the lack of GW2 defenders is that everyone who is playing GW2 is so enamored with it that they simply don't have time or desire to poke their heads in other things. Which really sin't true. This argument has been around for years and has persisted through many other games and it was wrong then and it's wrong now.
