    I am still playing with my only toon even though I already reached level 80. Joining a guild that is active in W v W and uses voice comm has been a great deal to me. I see myself playing GW2 for at least 6 months and beyond.

    Yes, I see GW2 grow. The game is not feature complete yet and I'm not talking about just adding more areas and dynamic events. The teambased paid sPVP and observer mode has been announced already so I won't add these to the list of what I expect to see.

    -Guild Halls/Housing

    -Player Housing

    -Some type of organised Guild vs Guild pvp with a ranking system.

    -A lot more minigames ala kegbrawl in the main cities and other kinds of activities.

    -More npc services ingame.

    To me it seems they only delivered what was seen as ready and mainly avoided talking about other upcoming features. Or just hinted at (the above). I'm positive that the features above will be implemented, you can remind me if they are not.

    If the game fleshes out in terms of features it will gain more staying power then with just adding new areas with DE's. Which will happen too, but the contentlocusts will devour that just as fast as now. You can't develop against that speed. But then again, it is not a big deal for me to play different games now and then and just come back after some time to GW2. After all, I did the same with GW1.

    No, I didn't even see myself playing 2 weeks out of launch. Its nothing special in my opinion and was completely overhyped. Its the same grinding quest game they said it wasn't going to be... actually its worse. At least in your traditional WoW styled questing you're guided... in this one you just go around the map for hours hunting for events to be able to do 5-10 minutes of your story then having to gain another 3+ levels.

    PVP is... well dumb. I do not like scaled form of PVP and wish they'd also bring along a non scaled version of it. Sure you could say WvWvW for gear... but you're still scaled to lvl 80.

    So what you want is griefing PvP? No thanks. If you can't play in a level playing field - you don't want to play PvP In GW1 or GW2.

     

    Judging by your response I can tell you're a person who has been the victim of many better geared or higher level players owning you. Me... I enjoy it. It gives me something to strive for. Right now there is no differences, we're all the same. There is no incentive for me to want to play through any hardship to work to equal or better groups. I'm just... given that ground. 

    Sorry that I enjoyed outplaying someone with better gear or enjoyed having to progress and work for my gear.. not be given the same stuff as joesmoe who just is playing for the first time. 

    No - that type of game is not for me as GW2 is not for you.

     

    That is the point of the game. YOU ARE ALL THE SAME so, HOW GOOD ARE YOU AT PLAYING YOUR BUILD? I guess you would rather have UBER equipment then beat another player, with the same equipment, on skill alone. Because in the game you like, gear grinding, you cannot say that with any certainty - you can say your equipment is what made the difference not how well you played.

     

    I have played gear grind games, Rift and WoW, and I find them asbsolutely mind-numbing. Why? Running the same dungeons over and over and over to get, maybe 1 drop in 10 times? No Thank You.

    It's not the fact that it's a niche game targeting a even smaller niche of an audience.  It's not the garbage animations or the fact that it's boring.  It's not because they screwed up PvP as bad if not worse than SWTOR.   It's cause EA is the publisher.

    I only listed features that were mentioned in blogs/interviews. But its ok to doubt me because I really don't feel like finding sources. Maybe someone else will.

    So much wrong with this. I wont derail the thread though. This thread is about how half the people here thinks GW2 stinks.

    If you don't think it changed the industry, I don't know what to tell you.  Every successful attempt at something different introduces new ideas for future devs, so it's definitely change.  It just can't be change that everyone likes.

    I dont mean to insult anyone. I just think that the impact of this game on the genre will be "0". The threads before release were quite exaggerated and that is what I want to point out.

    What you describe is not "industry change" according to my standards. Almost every game does something to distinguish itself from the rest. Do you think that TSW will have impact on the industry since they tried to do something different? I dont.

    Last night night I didn't have sex cuz I was playing GW2.  Well, I did have sex, but thought of foregoing it to play GW2.  It was the thought that mattered.  I guess I really just wanted to say that I had sex.

     

    ...I'm married so its kind of a big deal.

    I can see myself playing past 2012. I do think the game is lacking in a lot of departments and I have found myslef missing the trinity when it comes to PvE, but the game is still fun and I haven't gotten into the PvP portion just yet. I was a strong supporter of the game and still am, I only feel I would like something a little deeper and lttiel tougher in the progression areas of the genre. While the game is fun, I personally credit me playing for a really long time more to the lack of options rather than the lasting appeal of GW2. My fondest game was FFXI and the direction of that game was the total oppoiste of the current themeparks so that is probably why I am a little more critical on the progression system of GW2. Either way the game is fun and it's holding my attention just fine.

    With a thread so negative and with so many bad choices, it's no wonder the people that do enjoy it aren't even bothering to post in the thread.

    So much wrong with this. I wont derail the thread though. This thread is about how half the people here thinks GW2 stinks. 

    At no point was I stating whether TSW or GW2 were better or worse than one another.  They're both flawed titles for different reasons.  None of those reasons have anything to do with the publisher.

    I'm just pointing out that the success or failure of TSW had nothing to do with EA.  The only point you can really argue with that I made is whether the game is boring or not.  Animations are garbage?  Fact admitted by Funcom.  They're going back to rework animations for the entire engine.  PvP is screwed up?  Fact also admitted in the latest update from Funcom.  Niche game for niche audience?  Fact stated by devs themselves.

    Here's a list for GW2 if it makes you sleep easier at night:

    1) Invisible armies in WvWvW

    2) Got outmanned and orb buffs backwards

    3) only one format for sPvP

    4) Some classes are straight broken.  Looking at you Ranger and the latest complete blunder with the animation on SB.

    5) Ranged weapons get "Obstructed" for no reason.

    6) Hearts are boring

    7) Economy is totally out of whack and will probably never function appropriately

    I can keep going but really the point is: none of this would have happened if NCSoft wasn't the publisher.....

    I've stopped playing but I'm sure I'll return.  My selection of "I've stopped playing already" in no way means I won't return.

    I agree. The polls here are worhtless. What matters is folks are playing by the thousands and if others have quit, that is fine. The main portion of any mmorpg is the population and of course game play. 

    I started an alt elementalist last night and here is a quick check on population for those who are still doubting the game. I challenge anyone to go to an existing mmorpg and find that many folks in an a quest/event in a starting area. The other areas of the games still have many, many players in PvE. Everywhere you go people are helping one another and enjoying themselves. WvWvW is going full blast all the time also.

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

    What are your thoughts on the topic and do you agree/disagree? Is GW2 not what you expected or do you think it's the greatest thing ever? Don't forget to vote!

     

    Your opinion stated as fact, no bueno.

     

    I still voted though I don't agree with you.  I haven't logged in more than an hour in the last few weeks due to studying and wanting to play a game with more depth when I do, in my case EQ2.  GW2 is a great game, top of the class IMO for general themeparks, I just thought I would recieve it's type of gameplay better.  Eh, maybe in the future.

  • FrodoFraginsFrodoFragins Manchester, NHPosts: 2,928Member Uncommon

    People calling the game an" industry changer" don't understand the phrase.  I'll assume you mean a game that has broken awayy from industry standards.  No MMO can be an industry changer so soon after release because the rest of the industry needs to recognize those features and implement them.  That takes a lot of time.  It also implies that other MMOs will lose large numbers of players to play this new "industry changer".

    Didn't do the poll because you can have stopped playing but play again in a few months.

    That's the beauty of no subscription; you can pop back in any time and see if you're having fun again.

     

    didn't log in for a few weeks and logged back in today. Unfortunatly I got bored after 30 minutes which means it's time to call it quits. For now. I will probably check back in a few months or whatever.
