So how's the game treating people so far? (poll)

MeowheadMeowhead New Carlisle, INPosts: 3,716Member

Well, I saw a lot of people being unhappy over the first day, but the servers seem to have gotten a lot more stable.  They've also been patching up some of the problems that were going on, pretty quickly from what I saw.

So, I thought I'd use a poll, since it's hard to gauge just how many people are satisfied/unsatisfied just by reading random posters.  So, how happy are you with GW2 so far?

    Voted Satisfied - after they fix the guild issues and trading post, I couldn't be any happier with the state of the game.

    Extremely satisfied.  The game lived up to all the hype for me and it's one of the few games all of my friends play and we're having a blast.  
  • FrodoFraginsFrodoFragins Manchester, NHPosts: 2,926Member Uncommon
    Extremely satisfied so far.  It's not the best leveling experience I've ever had but it's fairly close.

    The WvWvW stuff is just a huge zerg fest. Very disappointed.
  • RohnRohn Saint Peters, MOPosts: 3,740Member Uncommon

    Underneath the thin veneer of "differences", the game is basically more of the same game that's been regularly offered to the community over the last several years.  It's unbelieveably easy, players are hitting level cap within 2 days played, overly-instanced, separates the gameworld into mini-themepark areas.

    It's got its fair share of technical problems as well.  WvW is a zerg, overall a terrible community as well.

    Pretty disappointing, "more of the same" for a game that came with a manifesto.

    Hell hath no fury like an MMORPG player scorned.

    if they could jsut fix the lag, and disconects issue.  Can't finish certain events in overflow, storyline is bugged wont complete. customer support answer was to reroll and change servers.

    I am going with satisfied.   Some of the tech hiccups are a pain in the ass.  Its also not ultimately different but it is just different enough that it proves itself to be a new evolution of the WOW model.

    I've had 2 bugs, one in starting area and one in WvWvW (stayling alive for 1-2 minutes after death) both times they said for me to reroll.

     

    /sigh

    Satisfied
    The game is good, I'm enjoying myself.
    But I have one thing that really really bugs the you know what out of me.

    That voice in Divinity's Reach...you know. That laughing guy.
    "EEHHH! HEHEHHH! AHH! HAHAHHHH!"

  • VesaviusVesavius BristolPosts: 7,635Member Uncommon

    Satisfied Meow.

    The first day... Anet let themselves down a bit I think. They coulda done better. And I am not a fan of the constant requeuing to get back on to my server, or how hard it is for me to get some WvW.

     

    BUT...

     

    The game is a LOT of fun. It is diverse in what it offers and it (to me) is great to look at. I am loving it.The postives massively outweigh the negatives so far.

  • Deto123Deto123 Kelowna, BCPosts: 689Member
    Satisfied---almost disatisfied. It s an extremely average game, for being the next big thing.
  • JustsomenoobJustsomenoob lexington, KYPosts: 871Member

    I voted satisfied.

     

    Would have gone with extremely satisfied if the trading post was operational and the guild display bug/inability to represent guild you started etc was fixed

  • HonnerHonner SydneyPosts: 504Member
    Satisfied, they need to fix things like the trading post.
  • MithrandolirMithrandolir The Deep Woods, NJPosts: 1,698Member Uncommon

    Extremely satisfied.

    We got some hiccups but most people saw that coming with the popularity of the title.

    Tch issues aside, I am finding the game to be so much fun that I have now had my single longest play spurt since 2001. It just makes me want more.

    Seriously, you must be a jaded player. a "thin veneer of difference" You realize its still an MMORPG right? So It's not going to have things like FPS dynamics, or side scrolling 1v1 fights with health bars at the top.

     

    This game does so many things differently while keeping enough same that it is familiar and fun. Voted extremely satisfied, trading post needs to be fixed, but I can wait a while so the economy fluffs up enough.

    I had never played Guild Wars. I bought into the hype, and purchased it yesterday.   Really enjoying what I'm playing.
  • fenistilfenistil GliwicePosts: 3,005Member

    My system barely is making minimal requirements, but it is making them.

    Still even at lowest settings (without subsample cause with subsample it is looking worse than WoW in 2004) is is preety much unplayable giving me 10-15 fps according to in-game counter.

    I have updated drivers, etc

     

    I fortunatelly have new better  PC incoming in 2-3 weeks and I planned it for a long time (not purcharse made especially for g2).

    BUT still I am angry cause of this.

     

    Apart of that it is ok, but I have not seen that much of a game and stopped playing till I finish up building my PC as in DE is totally unplayable. I am not even start to talk about WvWvW...

    It's to balance the haters/trolls.  It all works out in the end.

    Haven't played it enough yet, to be fair.  Little dissatisfied so far, but it could just be the class I am playing to be honest.  Trying necro again....As I usually play a caster or ranger.

     

    It feels a little busy with open quests....Hard to explain....But it may just be the beginning area, just seems like their is no exploring, if you can understand....But like I said havent played a lot yet, so this could change...and the class may not be the one for me...

     

    So things could change, and I hope they do.

    I heard they've posted GMs at WvWvW entry points apologizing for the queue problems. That's pretty awesome. I can't remember the last time I've seen an in-game presence to apologize and inform people.

  • NadiaNadia Canonsburg, PAPosts: 11,866Member

    I love the whole vistas via exploring deal. Reminds me of the Assassin's Creed vantage points, and has a great effect in an MMO.

    Well, this poll makes me feel a little better.  I don't think the numbers for satisfied/not are that far different from how positive people were about the game pre-release. :D

    The first day I got to play about 7 hours, then got booted just as I had to leave anyway.  At the airport I just saw thread after thread of people unhappy with the servers being down.

    I can understand being frustrated, but at least it hasn't killed all interest in the game or something.
