If repaired the game could be fun.  The biggest turn-off is the fact that the economics of the game is now controlled by those that used exploits to get huge amounts of cash of multiple rare weapons due to a duping exploit.  The second thing is the high number of bots and gold farmers that can now be found in all zones from the starter areas all the way to Orr.  The third problem is one that is repairable but at this stage it seems unlikely and that is the miserable customer service and lack of information that Areanet fails to provide.  If and when they get this issues resolved you might find the game likeable other wise it is like hitting yourself in the head with a hammer, it only feels goosd when you quit.

    Im sure you would love to enlighten us on this "duping exploits" has i have never heard of it till now, so what if the game is riddled with bots and gold farmers? its in every MMO also i have never encountered a bot, and people gold farm for things they want so wanting something is bad now?

    only thing Gw2 miss now is the whiners to leave the game and haters to loose interest in this forum. Lets say a couple of months more !

    read how to create a succesfull mmo before posting about GW2. And read tao of ArenaNet before talking about innovation in GW2

    Dupling exploit?

     

    I think the OP was looking for the Diablo forums and missed.

    How can it feel good to quit a game with no subscription? You are not technically quitting anything.

    Try changing your account password, make it long and devilishly complicated to remember, and dont write it anywhere. Thats as close to quitting as youll ever get.

    You do know that devs has been resetting those exploiters, wiping the gold they earned and deleting their characters. The trading post economy isn't in trouble yet, the botters and gold sellers hasn't really put much of a dent in it yet either.

    No matter what server you play on, the Auction House is flooded with cheap materials. It's ridiculous to say that this game has a working economy. Everything you find is practically worthless now and the money sinks built into the game are eating away at people's bankrolls.

    Wow, there are still many flamers around.

    The statements made by the op are not true. The game is fantastic, I'm having a blast, questing, world pvp, crafting, everything is fun from the very first minute!

    I think everybody who likes rp-games should try this one!

    Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need.

    You do know this is being addressed by A.Net as you posted? Customer Service with A.Net is usuall y pretty good, but with the mount of tickets they had at the beginning and all, it is hard to catch up.

     

    Do you think constantly whining about this will make it get fixed any faster? Really please mods, just close this thread - nothing new here.

    The TP is global, it isn't server by server, it's one big network.

    What's ridiculous, is you trying to make claims that the game doesn't have a working economy when you don't even understand how the most basic features of it work.
