    Well some folks don't like some games and others do. It has been said many times before, but the thousands playing right now will not miss any of those that don't want to play anymore! 

    Except that in an MMO, players are content.

    I hope they can find a way to merge low and mid level zones together otherwise DEs, even the ones that work, are going to suck.

    All die, so die well.

    Sorry, I am being sincere, but I didn't understand that.  Why would you merge zones?

    tedious and boring?? i admit that is true; it can be, but its because you choose to play it as a tedious and boring game, then it will be that.

    And the thousands that are not playing anymore will not miss any of the ones still playing. Too many other mmos out there that are just better and with more to come.

    All my friends quit too. :(

    And I just log out. Too boring too tedious. Too bad pvp was limited only to www or spvp. That was turn off for many ppl imo.

    Well you would have one up on me but I'm playing and they are waiting! :) I'm playing three mmorpgs and have no problem commenting positivley about any of them. On the other hand others can't even play one without continually bashing the ones they don't like.

    the problem with gw2 is, that the players who arent playing anymore or claim they arent, come to the forums to insult those who like the game, or to BnM about the game not suiting their play styles....

    this is the first game where I see this many people across this many forums QQing that the games not exectally what they want or expected....even WoW had less of this early on....tho they also had alot of BnM over ques and server stability and other bugs....

     

    honestly if you dont like the game and want to quit, good for you, quit and play something else, just dont come tell people who like the game they are wrong for liking it.....

    What I find interesting is that back during the BWEs, I had never seen a game get show much praise from a forum.

    What is the deal with so many MMO players?  All I heard about prior to GW2 was how great the game would be and how everyone was looking forward to it.  It releases and now it's a bad game and people are quitting.  It's the same story for every other MMO released in the last 5 years or more.  I would NEVER invest my money in the creation of a MMO -- the fans suck.  They don't know what they want, they change their opinions on a minute to minute basis, and they're quick to turn on companys they've followed for years. 

    You know why many games fall short of expectations IMO?  It's because they have to focus on initial box sales -- they know the MMO players will tear them apart soon enough before moving on to the next victim.  That's why it's hype, hype, hype prior to release and so many unfinished features at launch.  Why bother finishing them when it will make no real difference in the end?  Six months after release, you are left with a small loyal following in most cases, and the major MMO herd has moved on no matter what you've given them.

    It's not a bad game, just like Tera and TSW. Some folks just don't grasp some games and do others. There are still thousands of people playing GW2 and loving it. Coming to this forum is the same as becoming filled with pancreatic cancer for some folks, they just have to spread what they don't like.

    I posted this video a couple nights ago when I started an alt. This is just one small part of the world of Tyria and still many, many people are enjoying the game.

    You can't judge the game based on these forums, since for some reason GW2 really upsets some people.  I'd worry more about the game when the trolls stop posting "I quit GW2".

    Look at the front page, GW2 seems to always have at least one thread active all the time.  Its pretty amazing.

    Agreed! I'm rotating through GW2, MoP, and Vanguard, and GW2 is always up against the ropes one way or another. No one posts negatives about many of the other games and of the 3 I'm currently involved with GW2 is superior. I have a level 73 Pandaren Monk in WoW and don't play it that much, so you can tell how watered down the leveling has become. I love the other 2, but they just aren't as good as GW2. This is my opinion though and if others don't agree they should just post on their forum of choice.

    Seeing you just joined, you missed the massive backlash of hate SWTOR went through.  This GW2 stuff is nothing in comparison.

    Breaks combat? You can run circles around mobs without ever breaking combat. Unless you use mouse to move forward during combat of course. Then you probably die all the time.

    I think that the OP is annoyed by the combat difficulty and that prevents him from enjoying the rest of the game. Of course events will become tedious if you still can't fight well after some time.

    My advice, learn to move using wasd keys otherwise you will never enjoy combat at higher lvl in GW2. Or a maybe controller? (never tried myself, Im used to wasd and mouse) Moving with just mouse will make you an easy target even for PVE mobs. And maybe try some different packs and weapons for your engineer if you are tired about that overcharged shot skill. It is actually a usefull skill to get rid of snares or move away from strong mobs.

    Wait... you can move just with the mouse?

    Is this sarcasm? I use only the mouse to move.

    I thought you had to use WASD to move and the mouse to look... didnt think you could move with the mouse alone.

    hold down both mouse buttons.. this is pretty standard with most MMOs

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

  • VorthanionVorthanion Laguna Vista, TXPosts: 2,122Member Uncommon

    I think part of the problem is that the game doesn't feel very rewarding for the effort and this  is especially so with the PvP.

     

    P.S.  In response to a post made earlier by Mannish, we aren't going to miss you or the game either.  I have moved on to something better where I don't have to deal with bitter and irritating people like you.

    i only use it if i need to run around and type something at same time.. but autorun would work for that as well

    Actually you can turn much faster using the mouse than wasd. It is something you need to train your brain to do, but I like it much better in PvP.

    I pretty much agree with the OP but for me, its just the general direction that MMO's are taking... I strongly dislike the direction that all mmo's are seeming to go, its as if they are nickel and diming you to death and guild wars 2 is a perfect example of this.. sure there are no monthly subscriptions etc... but they fill your inventory up with a bunch of crap trying to get you to purchase keys etc..etc.. which essentially cost more to play.

    Also my problem with guildwars two is the lack of abilities.. once you learn all the weapon skills you really don't have anything to look forward to through leveling up.. maybe a new zone or two but other than that its just kinda like whatever.

    I haven't truly enjoyed an MMO since eq.. because everything that I loved about that game has been removed from all future games... everything is BOE or BOP has level ranges dying has no real penalty yet its still funny to see people cry about having to spend a few gold on repairs as if it was the end of the world...

    They need to bring back some of the things I miss about playing early mmo's no boe , no bop, a real challenge.. make dying suck etc..etc.. sure these features aren't for everyone, but lets not attach the OP saying "MMO's" aren't for you when we were original mmo players and MMO's are completetly different today than they used to be..

    I think MMO's need to go back to their roots, and stop implementing all the things world of warcraft did even though it has proven to be successful..  wow would have been successful no matter what they did just due to the huge amount of money they sunk into advertising.
