    So to sum this thread up...

    WoW fan:  OMG!  MoP is going to outsell GW2 and SWTOR.  HAHAHAH show um how it's done Bliz!  You get um!

    GW2 fan:  I wish you all the best and hope you enjoy your new expansion :).

    WoW fan:  Whatever!  You are all just upset that your game has FAILED and people are jumping off the sinking ship!  WoW foreva bro!!!!

    GW2 fan:  Really :)?

    man get yourself into reality , ive seen way more of these gw2 trolls here trying to bait wow players on their forums then wow players. you have a guy rename himself kungfupanda2012 just for the sack of baiting people as hes stirring the pot in both sets of forums intentionally . You guys here just cannot stand any game that has an expansion or releases effecting GW2 . If its so great stop trying to bait everyone here and go enjoy gw2.

     Maybe, I wouldn't be surprised, but just look at THIS thread ;).

    I know that not all WoW fans are like this, but honestly, the folks in this thread are not representing the WoW community very well.

    Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

    So anyone is even surprised? i am so tempted to bump and old topic where people were saying MOP will be utter failure. When will these people learn?

    However, what i learned from this topic is..

    GW2 goes for mass appal .it is awesome.

    WOW goes for mass appeal ..is obviously bad and game made for the lowest denominator.

    I love reading these posts ;)

    Back to the OP. Of course WoW will outsell GW2 and SWToR, it hast tv commercials and millions of people playing now. GW2 has no tv commercial and one poor internet ad.

    I will see you guys tomorrow in either Tyria or Aseroth. Look for a Mist Weaver Monk or a Norn Guardian having fun. :)

    I digg this attitude, even though I won't be playing MoP, I do hope you guys have [fun].

    Easy there chief.... woudl be hard to talk on behalf of 'everyone'.

    But yeah different standards to judge two MMOS whose main aim is to sell millions of copies and reach as many players as possible. 

    What makes this whole thing even more ironic is that Mike O Brain stated he won't rest till he beats WOW and become number one. lol

    im playing guild wars 2 and also taking a break from it until they fix some of these ridiculous simple mmorpg issues. Ive already delved into this expansion though and I know it doesnt suck . Yes its your same run of the mill heroics and raiding grind outdated like every other expansion but its far from stupid like people here are trying to let on . Also people complaining about the graphics and no updates? they just added graphics updates to shadows and lighting and new characters models promised through blood elves and dranai throughout this year and next.

    While guild wars 2 is a good game , i seriously cannot understand why people here cannot just accept that different games can be played at the same time and all have their issues. I dispise world vs world in GW2 , its nothing like DAOC and flat out lie by Mike Feruson, I hate having to gear grind once again to 90 in wow and run boring heroics over and over for weeks to get back into raiding. See what i mean? I can bitch and moan about both games equally as they have issues. But both games are still very good games with quality to them.

     It was a joke...

    He misspelled appeal as "appal" (appall) which means: 

    to overcome with consternation, shock, or dismay

    Then he said that everyone thinks GW2 is awesome.  So if GW2 went for mass APPALL and everyone thinks it's awesome, then it failed ;).

    I don't play wow anymore nor i will buy mop,but guys saying that you shouldn't compare wow with newer games becaue wow was out there for X years and has a well established player base etc.

    That well established and huge player base is there because people think it is a good game,and blizzard proves they are good since they can keep such a player base.

    then he will remain unrested for a looooong time. gw2 either he wants it or not is not what even anet itself dreamed. dying every day faster and faster. yes i know fanboys will say what ever they want but they are facing already the same fate with rift/swtor/warr etc

    A win for GW2 doesn't mean WoW loses, or vice versa, especially since GW2 is a F2P(edit: B2P) game. 

    I enjoyed Cata... gonna pass on MoP, though; it's just not for me. 

    Enjoying GW2, and looking forward to LotRO RoR.

    I don't understand the GM vs. Ford, Beatles vs. Elvis mentality that some folks have.  Why on earth can a person not appreciate 2 good things?

    GW2 is no more ftp than Diablo3 is ftp

    WOW is more ftp than GW2 -- can play WOW forever at no cost under level 20

    Is this the Xfire numbers after MoP's release thread?

     

    Oh wait, that isn't for another day.... I'll hang onto the snowcaps until then. Yes, snowcaps. A person can't eat something besides popcorn?

    I'll concede that I incorrectly stated it's F2P; I meant B2P.

    But "play WoW forever under lvl 20"?  That's just priceless...

    Most likely. Still that won't stop me from holding the opinion that that Wow these days is an abysmally shallow and shitty game when compared to its former glory.

    (remember, we don't like anything right?)

    Seriously, OP poked a stick into the side of a snarling dog, of course he's gonna get bit.

    I wish them the best luck and huge sales since I believe they really went in the right direction with this expansion.

    Whether they outsell gw and tor is not my concern.

    Blizz is number 1, for me :)

    Well however the vast majority of WoWs so called "player", wont even be able to access MOP until 2nd October 2012.

    So the  global 24h "sales" including free handout clients in SEA/PPH regions will not flush in "the numbers" as easy some want to believe here.

  • roo67roo67 londonPosts: 402Member

    Its not looking good (I'm in WoW at the moment) for outsellling GW2 and SWTOR put together . MOP has just gone live .In the EU theres 18 high servers (some of which are locked) ,42 medium servers and the  the rest are low . I remember far higher amounts of high status servers with the release of previous expansions . It may be better tomorrow given its quite late and lots of younger players are mostly likly in bed . So I guess still possible but my guess is it will fall short of Cata sales .

    Whats it like in North America ?
