    Given I haven't read every post and thread on the forum but imo the biggest problem is just the blatant lies that 'anti' spew... and than other possibly real anti support them by saying "everyone has an opinion" and it goes around and around... Stop the misinformation!.

    Hey forums stop with all these opinions. Lets all just agree to disagree and never post again. That way fanboi's can game under the illusion everyone loves their game as much as they do and haters can channel their hate in a more useful direction.

    Or

    Or

    Or

    We can all post out thoughts like it's a forum or something. Crazy.

    How do you make "Here's my opinion and here's why I feel this way" a blatant lie?

    I'll give you that, some points are exaggerated and some are lies. But not everything is wrong or is a lie and most of it is simply opinion and this statement implys that dissenters are liars and fans tell the truth.

    Heh, this has been said for every mmo released and discussed on these forums. But now its an mmo that you love so its your turn. Next mmo that comes out, it will be someone else fed up with the bullshit around here.

    Another solution when a forum get such an influx of posters, would be to have an oldtimers section where only oldtimers could post and where the oldtimers could have their old discussions and then they could just watch the fray in the main forum.

    Or the oldtimers could just wait a month or 2 to things have settled down, and then they could begin to practise their rules of engagement again.

    I will settle for the last option and mainly hide in other forums, until this one actual is able to deal with experience again

    read how to create a succesfull mmo before posting about GW2. And read tao of ArenaNet before talking about innovation in GW2

    Creslin,

    You should add this to Anti-fans:

    Stop lying about game mechanics, features, and problems when you have not played the game yourself, or havent made it past level 10, and are simply relying on the word of random people on the internet that it is true.

     

    Thats the part I take issue with. I know people simply dont like particular things in different games. I dont like things in a lot of games, even the ones I played for years. My issues are generally with people who flat out make up things, or were misinformed by someone else about things, and continue spreading the misinformation.

    Perfect example: Ive seen several posts by different people claiming you can only turn your camera with RMB.

    It would be nifty to have a forums where the game could actually be discussed amongst the community here.  This certainly aint it.

  • rodingorodingo Posts: 2,346Member Uncommon
    All this forum activity for GW2 is classic MMORPG trend.  You really shouldn't be surprised about the amount of negative and positive threads about this game, which right now is easily biased towards teh negative.  I do know that people are mostly predictable about trends and for now it's fashionable to dislike what's popular.  Look at WoW.  One of the biggest successes in the MMORPG market wether people want to admit it or not, yet out of the all the millions of players that game has, the ratio of people here at MMORPG.com that say that game sucks or is trash will probably make you think that only a small fraction of people actually play the game.  Once someone says a game is good it's like blood in the water.  People will soon jump on the thread and say it sucks, then get mad or act confused that people for defending it.  Sure it goes both ways, but come on.... when you can look at the forums and see the tons of threads already stating how the game sucks or is lacking, is it REALLY neccassary to start yet another thread basically saying the same thing?  There is a point at which things get out of hand.  It seems these posts are mostly out of spite now and are just hard to take serious anymore.

    We're in that time period right now where people have played the game for some length of time and have established whether they like it or not.

    All the players with grievances need a place to vent them, hence: here.

    It pretty much happened for every MMO launch I know of.

    Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

    Sorry OP but that made me laugh so much. So because several review sites say the game is good (have you actually read those reviews, i have seen more detail in a five year olds story book compared to some of those) it has to be that way for everyone, no-one could possibly not like the game? There are nearly 1000 good user reviews which hold more weight in my opinion than the magazine site reviews, but there are also over 130 bad reviews which are just as valid.

    I don't play it myself at the moment, but i am watching it with interest and will probably buy when things have calmed down a little, but in the mean time i am listening to both sides of the arguments as they both have merit and that is the general idea of forums like this that are not controlled by the game companies themselves in that people are free to express their opinion and others are free to express theirs in return.

    There are those on here that will turn almost anything into an 'argument' given half a chance, but there are also some healthy debates to be had as well.

    It must be Thursday, i never could get the hang of Thursdays.

    I think the OP almost has it right, but he also sounds like one of the fans with this post. I have no problem with players giving their opinions, however..

    What I don't like about some fans: The ones that will defend the game to no end. Even if what was said is slightly true/fact. The fan will never admit to it, or he will admit to it but give a bad reason that thinks he has countered the argument. Sorry but NO game will ever be that perfect. Not even gw2. Acknowledge the negative opinion sometimes when the proof is in your face. You already like the game, negative comments can't change your mind.

    What I don't like about anti-fans/haters: That they can't seem to understand because "he/she" does not like the game, this person thinks the game is a fail and everyone should agree with him/her no matter what review the game has gotten. 95% of all players could say they love the game but this person is still bent on "the game will go free in a few months/year". Sorry but you haters need to just tell your opinion in a contructive manner and move on and stop hanging around the forums "of the game you hate so much" just to hate some more.

    I generally block the obvious haters.  And so I'm left with being really annoyed with those people who  can't find faults in teh game or in how some people like to play it.  It will never stop.

    Should add to Fans:

    Stop telling people they are playing the game wrong. It's an MMO not rocket science. You don't need to be a part of MENSA to play. There is no right or wrong way to play an MMO .. there is only " your own way "

    If player X wants to run around naked killing nothing but rabbits while humming Lady Gaga .. Then he/she is playing the game right for themselves, and it's not up to anyone else to dictate how they should be doing it.

    Well to be fair about the metacritic thing, critics aren't always accurate (or they are even blatantly untruthful in their reviews), and a high initial score doesn't necessarily mean the game will/can last.

    How is that fair?

    Just you wait, next week it will be 'GW2 has peaked on xfire!'

    in fairness though, i've noticed that the comments using xfire as some kind of argument have mysteriously disappeared.. maybe it has peaked on xfire already image

  • EvilGeekEvilGeek londonPosts: 1,227Member Uncommon

    Give it time to calm down, we are only two weeks in, it's a new toy for people to bash or be over zealous about protecting it. It's way too easy to get annoyed about both sides so I'm reading, turning away and going back to the game, pointless me commenting on most posts as either it will be the same tired arguments or the constructive comments have already been made.

    That's because MMORPG.com deemed xfire threads lead to too much debate about the validity of xfire numbers, which is why they prefer having it in the PUB-section over any section at all.
