Hello all, I haven't logged in Guild Wars 2 in about 1-2 weeks, just because I'm not having fun and had much more fun grinding my HoM, dungeons and PVP in Guild Wars 1 and I feel this is why.
Lack of continuous story : Sure there is story quests and cut scenes, but eventually you do them every few levels and the story is broken up and there is no character development in dynamic events. Also by level 50 each of my story quests kept bugging, over and over and eventually gave up on them.
Basically no roles in dungeons: The one good thing with healers, tanks and dps in other MMOs is that you can be a great healer, or a great dps and be complimented and also there is a sense of pressure and responsibility knowing someone is relying on you to do well, with GW2 that just vanishes, support or control simply isn't need, only dps and dodging, which wrecks all sense of achievement.
Skills are lacking for PvP: GW1, was so phenominal for PVP because you have 8 slots and hundreds and hundreds of skills to chose from, so you don't really know what your opponent has equipped until they use them on you and you react. With GW2, you see a warrior with a hammer, you can automatically narrow down his skill count massively, except for his ulility skills, this isn't a huge issue but still feel PvP is lacking.
Bugs, exploits and hacks: This is the big one for me. Me and my group of friends looking forward to GW2, 2 days in one of us gets their password brute forced, had to wait a week to resume play as we wanted the social aspect. That left us with a sour taste but continued anyway, then wanted to try 100% world completion, until many many skill points were bugged and people recommend switching server to fixed it!? Then there is the WvW botting, gold sellers and orr botters, its just too much.
Generally, everything is too easy: In GW1, a top level dungeon (FoW / UW) is still so hard that, 7 years after it launched, its still not gauranteed that you will finish them, one wipe and thats it. With GW2, checkpoints and everyone ressing, it just lacks a challenge after you have any tactics down.
Anyone feel the same?
