Actually there is lot of shiny to be collected through crafting and otherwise at lvl 80 even though no statistical advantage but i doubt that would stop anyone from being impatient. Also GW2 fans can deny all they want but being lvl 80 does give you an advantage over lower levels in PVP.
Did he beat the story line or did he just reached 80? I mean just bec he has reached 80 doesnt mean he seen all the game has to offer. In guildwars 1, you can reach max lvl pretty early on but you still got plenty of content before beating the story line.

Well I kinda agree with you. Although, I do agree that It can be seen as some kind of achievement for some, for me its just a waste of the game. For me it is like a speed eating contest while eating your favorite dish...such a shame.
He only reached level 80. His personal storyline line is only at level 16.
Seems like he power leveled through crafting quite a bit.
My main character is level 17 and I created another alt for crafting and leveled to 15 in few hours just crafting alone.
Originally posted by Ashengray The reason i ask is, some people are assuming that he has beaten the game when infact he just reached 80. Reaching 80 does not equal to beating the game.
To many players it does, but just wait for the whining about no endgame quicker than other MMO's this time.

Originally posted by Illyssia It isn't a silly acomplishment at all. If you play the game intensively you can beat it really fast.
To you really think hitting 80 is "beating the game"?
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.

The way Anet designed GW2 and according to most of the avid fans in beta, this wouldn't be a waste of the game because at 80, you get to go down and do all the content anyway. So, really the guy just concentrated on levels before a lot of content where as most people will get more content done before levels.
Since there is no "endgame" or the "endgame" starts right away, he didn't really speed through anything, heh. Just a different progression route.
On a side note, I can see why some speed through a game beyond the bragging rights. If they play in beta extensively, there isn't much reason to go through all the content you've down multiple times before. I've done that once before. Kind of why I don't play much in betas anymore.
if you don't like the phrase beat the game then can perhaps looks upon it as they beat the leveling aspect of the game.
A lot of the fanbois seem very defenisve about the speed at which players hit GW2 level cap, but that's just the way ArenaNet designed it. THe game is fun, it's just not very demanding. A lot will probably focus on PvP and WvWvW long term as that puts player skill into the equation.
Originally posted by Piiritus Well, 80 levels in a bit more than 30 hours is kinda quick. It took longer for world first even in Rift if I remember correctly and that game was ultra easy to level. Edit: Personally I think that achievments like this are brainless. Games should be for entertainment.
When EQ1 released the expansion pack legacy of YKessha I remember a guild leveled a Froglok to 60 within 24 hours. EQ1 was the mother of all grind fests in my opinion.
this guy cliams he did 1 - 60 in WOW in 23 hours and change
there is always going to be a "that guy"
I miss DAoC
Congratulations? I guess...
Now, WHAT'S THE ENDGAME?
this sounds like GW1... i got max lv (20 on vanilla) within 24hrs or so playing it. if they keep the old system that gw1 had you can hit max cap off quests and just powering through all the storyline content.
while i never see much point in hitting max in anygame over night.. i guess this person is happy with them selves lol.

Gratz all nice orga for the group of players. (or did it really just one? well then not so much orga )
And in a week we have all forgotten it. So lets move on.
I am pokey for sure, 19 hours on a single character and only level 15! Awesome amounts of fun though Loving the game!

Not necessarily. It's a very concentrated burst, for certain, but after the burst, more time is freed up for things other than gaming.
I am not a powerleveler (my main in GW2 is now level 13), but I don't think it's an illegitimate playstyle.
