I have seen it all now. The circle is now complete.
Only thing now is to have someone say they're bored from the login screen. Although I suppose it would be fitting considering that other topic raving about the game due to the login screen.
You guys kill me...unfortunately for you not often in PvP
1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.
2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.
3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

Depends on your health. Did you see the episode of Ozzy Osbourne trying to remove the wrapper from a CD on that reality show of his? :P
Actually in all fairness that probably does win out XD
Originally posted by donjuanagain To be honest, Skyrim has ruined me on all games. I can play that game for hours and lose track of time. GW2 takes about an hour and I'm over it. Maybe thats a good thing. I dont know.
I am just browsing Skyrim modes and am very tempted to reinstall with all DLCs and a load of mods. Not many games can compare, at least for me, tbh.
Originally posted by DMKano Probably just hitting GW2 burnout - but not feeling any aspect of GW2 lately - even WvW is feeling uninspiring to me. I am stting at 75 and no will to even get to 80. Crafting is boring and sort of a deja vu from countless other MMOs I've played. PvE I feel I am just completely fed up with - can't stand to do another DE. I think I need a break - maybe I'll load up Vanguard - had a max toon there years ago and a mid 30s shammy that was fun.
Vangaurd is a good choice in my opinion, no other MMO has the same level of depth and open world SEAMLESS exploration period. I havent rushed my leveling process in GW2 so Im still having a blast.
I have mixed feelings about GW2. I love this game more than any other in the past 5 years, yet have no desire to actually play. After thinking about it it dawned on me that this game is probably not meant for me as a main MMO. All of these things are HIGHLY subjective and I do think GW2 is an amazing game.
I have no urge to login at all, but when I do I have fun. It is mostly just meandering around, I have gotten to level 50 doing this but I never really care all that much or have much desire to stay online for very long. I generally only play for 2 hours at the most, which is rare for me in the first weeks of a new MMO. I just get kind of bored even though I'm enjoying myself If that makes any sense at all.
I think the two main problems for ME is the lack of direction/goals for me in the game and the lack of community.
Goals wise, I'm leveling but I never feel as if I'm pogressing. I'm becoming better as a player, but that happens in every game. In FFXI, my first and favorite MMO 8 years ago, I always felt like I had a goal to strive for, that awesome new armor, cool new skill at level 60, or to be able to do the next part of the mission. You had to work your ass off to get all of that, but when you got it was great. In this game I feel like I'm leveling for traits and the personal story, one of those things is very boring and the other kind of lackluster to me. I never really feel as if I'm becoming more powerful. Though this is perfect for the people who don't care about progression or goals in an MMO (the majority).
The second point, the community, is 100% personal. It doesn't really feel like there is one to me. With the overflow servers putting you on server with people you might never see again, aswell as the vast majority of events being doable with no cordination at all outside of your personal accountabilty, it really feels like you don't need one. Furthermore, outside of doing dungeons and talking, at least as a PvE player, it really doesn't feel like you need a guild. I have never needed my guildies help or seen anyone ask for help. No one levels together in my guilds. Its basically just a chat room for us.
The sad part is I love dungeons, but most of the guilds I have joined don't want to play them or find them too hard and leave. I have had a very tough time playing my favorite part of the game since I can't find anyone to do it with. This is of course a personal issue/bad luck, and has nothing to do with the game though.
It makes me sad since it is such a good game. I want to love it and be glued to it so bad but just can't. It is just missing the factor that draws me in and makes me want to play. I will still be playing because when I get the urge it is really fun and I want to support Anet for trying something different well hoping other devs follow suit. It looks like it is back to hunting for a new main-MMO for me though. A daunting task since I now refuse to play WoW or its derivatives. I wonder how FFXIV Reborn is shaping up.
So far, I'm the polar opposite. I hit 80 early on yesterday after getting about 15 levels from crafting and have since gone on to level up 7 more times, earning 7 skill points. I'm still running events in every zone I pass through simply because I feel like a hero in the world and it's my responsibility to help out when I can.
I'll agree that hitting 80 felt underwhelming. I mean I've never been one to yell "DING!" upon leveling up, but usually reaching max level feels somewhat satisfying. I almost didn't even notice this time around--and I immediately got 2 more levels just minutes after from crafting. And it's not like hitting max level means anything in this game. You don't receive anything new. Nothing new opens up to you. I find I still have tons of things to progress toward, just reaching level 80 wasn't one of them.
On one hand, I love that all of GW2's gameplay modes are available throughout the whole game. On the other hand, I kind of wish reaching level 80 felt a little less arbitrary.

So yeah, about 3 or 4 days in I have zero desire to log in. I actually find GW1 to be more entertaining still. I logged in the other day and was shocked to find that the game was filled with people. In just two towns there were at least hundreds of players (each). I've actually gone back to Skyrim. Guild Wars 2 just doesn't give you a sense of adventure and despite the dynamic event system the game is just a single player unless you're playing with RL friends. People never stop to talk or interact. Everyones a sheep following all the dynamic events with zero strategy. Someone needs to make an MMO that forces players to team up and become friends or something. These MMOs are all stale single player online games.
You know a game already was made with those features. If you died, only players with a certain skillset were able to heal your wounds.
You also had to go to a crowded area and *GASP* socialize to buff yourself.
Guess what game that was?
And thats not the only one.
Whenever a game forces me to do something I don't want to, I uninstall it.

Eh, really? I played Skyrim and it was pretty good. Big improvement on their previous combat system (not saying much), but the world is just so shallow. I can't say I care for how the quests don't give you many options either. I just wish the magic and combat systems had more depth as well as the world (the random quests are horrible, for instance).
I guess I didn't find much to do in it after a while. Then again, I think TES games appeal more to people who like messing around with robbing and killing others. They always seem to add a lot of options for those types of people and not so many for the people who like being good guys.

FFXI, you couldn't even level without a party. You needed one for everything involing fighting mobs besides farming low level drops. Hell the majority of pre-WoW games you needed a group for most content.
Wow...maybe your problem is that you've overplaying!! lol. 75 lvls in just over a week? !
I have been playing since early release and have got 26 levels (over 3 toons) in that time. I'm guessing you must be a student or unemployed or something because thats an amazing amount in a very short time. You must have been playing day and night non-stop. Yes. you are burnt out. Got out and do something else for awhile.
I don't mean to insult, but it seems to me that you (not specifically 'you') are missing alot of the game if you just level like a maniac.
Originally posted by Fratman Man, I was bored with GW2 a couple years ago when I first read about it. It was obvious what it was going to be like and that there would be no long term value. This game's failure is even easier to predict than SWTOR's. That's because GW2 doesn't even pretend to have an end game. 6 months from now we'll be talking server mergers and how awesome it could have been if only they added more depth to the end game, crafting, etc, etc, blah, blah. How many times does this sceanrio have to play out before people catch on to the fact that themeparks suck?
Lol way to obviously know nothing about GW2. Fail.
Originally posted by PaRoXiTiC Best MMORPG to be released in 10 years. No I am not bored at all. This game is outstanding.
^ This x100
Yeah bored of the wannabe WAR RvR system they call WvWvW, at least WAR got that part right with a good split between objectives,zerg and castles. In GW2s version I am allways hitting a door, no fine balance at all between the objectives,zerg and castles which gave a good uptime on killing players and sidelines into the objectives.
So back to TSW for me too, which at least has both an meaningfull character progression and ability progression at endgame, + its not doorwars 2 in fusang, I actully get to kill people
Before I leave do I will say loved the DE´s, allways loved the PQ system in WAR and when they put it in I was "Doh" why havent any other mmo used this mechanic before now, glad to see Rift took it too and gw 2 ran with it as well. more PQs to the people
yeah bored from threads like this .
Originally posted by donjuanagain Im bored with this game as well. Im level 25 and started at the head start. A buddy of mine asked me what I thought about this game and summed it up for him. Its Warhammer 2.0.
Thats very much what I have been thinking as well. And while GW2 may be the "better" game of the two, I still have a lot of fond memories from life in WAR the first week after launch. My first week of GW2 has been utterly uneventful in comparison.
The community and how it came together was diffinitivly a lot more palpable in the early days of WAR than my experience has been so far with GW2. I suppose that's one reason I have been loosing interest.

Yes one sounds more politically correct I agree.
