(Updated : FYI, Ive been warned by the mods for trolling because of this thread- Ive been a member since 2004 and never had that happen LOL. Anyways, let this be a lesson to you folks out there who want to discuss legit issues with games on these forums. GW2 right now is last years SWTOR- if you try to talk about real issues with the game then you will face torches and pitchforks. Give it a month or two and just like SWTOR reality will sink in and we will be able to talk about these issues with out getting banned/ warned. So, if you want to risk getting warned or worse read on)
GW2 tried to get rid of the trinity...unfortunately what they got rid of was grouping. My first character I tried to make a support role and none of them are set up to be support. Just plain DPS and your own heal works better in world and dungeons.
This is a solo game with a-sorta-blitz-kiteing-group content. And, the 'Events' get old just like rifts did. World events get old really fast- how could we have fallen for this again? I mean there is no different between rifts in Rift and events in GW2.
It’s really a bummer cause I like the game and the pace of combat. However, I have 8 toons, one of each class and, most of them post 40, and I have never talked to anyone in the game. I don’t even really remember any person’s name that I have seen or grouped with for dungeons. Its interesting cause this is the first game that I have not joined a guild / group of people and had tons of fun. Its like im playing a single player game with some goofy AI named "deesnutz" and "drizzt" who will occasionally join me for a veteran or champion kill.
I like playing the game and I like the world its unfortunate that the PvE game is just a single player game.
Honestly, everyday I think about going back to TSW, EQ2, WoW, Rift, or something where you play with other people- I may not make it a month. It’s too bad. I have a feeling - and from reading all the new comments from these and other boards- the complaints are starting to roll in and the "fan-boys" are starting to feel it too- that after a month or two this game will end up in the same boat as The Secret World: After a month everyone will be done with the game- and move to something else.
