    I am guessing GW2 fan.

    you avoided playing a game based on the fanbase on an unofficial forum, that's the most ridiculous thing i have ever heard. if anything you should hate the devs because they made the game that you have never played yet hate so much. i'd say you'd be easy to manipulate.

    Yes, GW2 fan

    At least i made up my mind by actually playing the game, you made your mind based upon fan reaction. I have a mind of my own and will play something before i have an opinion on it, you sir are easily led.

    Yeah the over zealous gw2 fans are lulz:

    "If you like xyz instead of gw2 thats fine. I hope you enjoy yourself. Personally, i have evolved past that archaic style and could never revisit that trash. But you go ahead and have fun with that mmkay?"

    And that is why GW2 fans are the way they are.  You say you dont like them, but you belittle them and call them names based purely on you not liking the game.

    actually, there have been quite a few GW2 fanboi's that have said something similar to this "If you like xyz instead of gw2 thats fine. I hope you enjoy yourself. Personally, i have evolved past that archaic style and could never revisit that trash. But you go ahead and have fun with that mmkay?"

    Or they'll talk to you like you lost your loved one a year ago by saying..."you have to move on...things are different now...."

    Hands down the award for worst fans goes to GW2.

    ^^ Very true.  And they all seem to talk in absolutes:

    "Oh, I can never ever go back to playing those clones with their quest hubs.  I know exactly the type of game GW2 is and I'll be playing it for years and years." 

     

     

    oh my god I can´t believe people actually think that QUEST HUBS -- E V E R were the problem of bland MMO concepts.

    It´s mindboggling.

    How exactly does it matter how you receive an egg collection quest in your questlog?

    Like a new shiny car is better because the tank cap is on the right side instead of the left side?

    "Oh, I can never ever go back to driving those cars with their fuel cap on the left side!"

     

    Guess that´s one of the reasons GW2 fans are leading the list here. Incredibly happy about one less click on an NPC, but ignoring the fact they do the same thing like 10 years ago in any other MMO.

     

    play rift and you'll see why it matters, you have to do quest A from npc X so that you can see quest B and C  over the heads  of npc Y and Z. chain quests hubs are horrible and linear. people want to explore at their own leisure and not be led around by the nose, doing boring, meaningless quests for 15 dollars a month.

    Whether i have played the game or not is not, except for a small part related to the fans, although I believe community is important in an MMO. I don't really think that paying 60$ for the privilege of playing a F2P themepark is the bargain you obviously believe it is and is not something I think my time and money would be best spent upon.

    The rampant asshattery of the GW2 fans I see, and many others obviously agree with that from the input into this thread, is just the icing on the cake that makes me a little more supremely comfortable in my decision not to play, that along with the reports coming out now it can be played by more than the beta white knights

    actually in game the GW2 community is good by modern standards

    part of that might be down to game design and what not, no node stealing and what have you.

    also RVR games like DAOC, Planetside and sort of GW2 tend to have good communities because you need to work with everybody in your faction.  Where as your more pve focussed mmos, I often felt you were more in competition with your own side, who cleared what dungeon first and what have you, guilds poaching players off each other etc..

    GW2 is a very casual mmo you can dip in and out of, a big chunk of their players are older casual players that can't commit to long play schedules and typically dont go posting on forums either,

    I hate those damn MMO fans, you know of that one game...the one with swords and dungeons and magic spells. Yeeaaah, that one....Pacman. Those damn pacman fantrolls they get me everytime!

    But seriously hating a game because of its fans is just silly. Hey, my name is Tom, and I hate the greatest game ever made in the history of everythingness because of its fans. Thats like saying you hate italy because you dont like water. Absoultely silly.

    Really the worst fans will always follow the hype.  EQ used to be the worst fans, then WoW, then AoC, then SWTOR, then TSW, then and currently GW2... see a trend here? 

    And really why are people judging a game on it's fans?  If you like a game it's not because of the fans but the game itself.  Community wise MMOs are atrocious no matter how you spin it and people will find their click and stick with em that end up being their guild.

    how would you know what the community is like in gw2 you've never played the game? You are basing your view of the ingame community on the mmorpg.com forum, really? show me a forum that is not full of douchebags and over zealous fanboys. it is a bargain to me because i have played mmo's that have subs that are  of a lower quality than gw2, but how would you know you've never played the game.

    Actually all this thread is haters posting hate against X MMO which the specialty of the day is GW2 until the next major MMO comes around.  The title says all and is an invintation specifically for haters so naturally GW2 is going to have a lot of people hating on, in no shape or form is this going to be any accurate reflection to the true state of the community.  I've been in numerous MMOs and while GW2 does has it's faults it certainly not all that bad.  There are much worse in games like EVE and WoW who talk smack or have rampent immature talk like doing "Anal Rend" kind of things or childish smack talk.  Hell even AoC had much worse community with some to the chats in general.

    This happened with WoW for me. I literally started to hate it just because of the people that played it and haven't been back to it since and still have no desire to return.

    You said they are zealous and give you the lulz.

    You then made a quotation comment parodying them. 

    Perhaps disdain was the wrong word, but you were still causing a rather ironic situation.

    Results as expected.

    I was giving an example of what i meant by over zealous. That makes me over zealous now? Haha. Well, i apologize if anyone took personal offense . Figured this was a pretty silly thread so i made a silly post. But there are people on these forums who act that way, and i do find those types of posts funny. Saying so makes me one of them? Thats a new one hehe.

    Vanilla Wow was a great community. NOW, wow's community sucks.

    GW2 community can't be a bad community because it is a single player game and does not promote group play.  But the GW2 commuinity on these forums think they are elite and overhype the game..... which is baaaad.

    I have to agree with that. And I saw posts recently praising the matrix online. Both these games were awful. The only thing that I liked about SWG was the crafting. But for the most part it was pretty a pretty dull an empty game. The matrix was just a shoddy attempt to cash in on an IP that would of been perfect for MMOs.

     

    However I'm slightly guillty of looking at the past with these rose tinted specs myself when it comes to the original Everquest, although it still around. Up until recently I forgot how boring and furstrating it was at times particularly when it came to trying to orginize a large scale raid. Healer and tanks getting DCed at the world possible time and waiting for almost an hour to fetch a replacement which by the time the raid would start to disintegrate. Then there was always some idiot that stepped to far and pulls a mob almost wiping out the whole raid.

    Final Fantasy XI was based on Everquest. I don't know what the hell was wrong with me back then. Setup was usually 30 minutes for a normal party, then you have to get to the damn place, eat some food, find a camp spot, and hope noone decides to leave.

    WTF WAS WRONG WITH US?!

    It does somewhat by intent or not.

    Any parody of another can be seen as something done at the expense of the originating party. Even if I agree with you that it's humorous, it's considered mocking to parody such a person in what essentially amounts to public.

    Saying so in that manner makes you derisive, not necessarily a fanatic or zealous. Just makes you appear to have less social control than you might actually have.

     

    Granted this is the internet and most people seem to take that to mean they don't need any social conduct.
