    Click the original link posted by the OP it is 9 catagories down.

    The 9th blog post down is:

    ArenaNet starts teasing details for the Guild Wars 2 Wintersday patch

    So like I said, post the blog.  I love the vague claims made by the haters and how angsty they get.  Either of you could just post the blog, but you haven't.  Curious isn't it.

    Funny, even if the post exists that you would equate a site award with the opinion of one blogger.

    Your inablility to understand english is staggering. read the ORIGINAL POSTERS link which goes directly to the catagories NOT THE BLOG POSTINGS, and read the Ninth Catagory down. Do i need to make it clearer for you, can you handle this.

    Because i can.

    Yeah..

    I don't think anyone can accuse ANet of paying for game awards.  Buying awards requires money.  Buy to play simply doesn't generate the kind of cash you would need to buy off all the awards.  Probably need something like a monthly subscription with millions of players to accomplish something like that.

    That being said, the competition was pretty fierce in the MMORPG market this year...... right.

    Yeah, a game like rift should be able to afford that buyout since it's P2P right.  Which games on this list could afford to pay for advertisements before the Hobbit movie?

    a) GW2

    b) RIFT

    Answer: Not rift.  Only one P2P game could afford that sort of advertising and that was WoW.  Rift just needs 9,850,000 more subscribers.

    And there is not much compeition this year either. GW2 is the only high profiled MMO with huge hype was released this year.

    AHH - TERA and TSW were both released this year also. And the 2nd chapter to Rift was (which by all accounts seems to really help the game). So, yes, there were other games - NEXT!!!

    Rift has the monthly subscription down but I'm not so sure about the millions of players.

    Yeah TSW high profile..what? and Tera again what? sorry bro...there was hardly any compeition this year just like how SWTOR had no compeition last year. But you must feel really good about yourself for adding NEXT at the end of your reply.

    Rift did have some merges (they had too many servers at the beginning) but seems to be doing well and I wish Trion well. They do make a decent game and I just wish it were more video card optimized (my one complaint).

    ACtually 3 big games in a year is a pretty good list TBH. there was actually a battle for first instead of it being one AAA and a bunch of F2P

    "Hardly any" is a little different than "none".  People actually expected a lot more from the MMO's released in 2012 than they did in 2011, and look what happened... it's not GW2's fault that the other MMO's released this year were not as good.  This year had two major expansions released, one for Rift and one for WoW, along with 2 or 3 other MMO's...

    GW2 made them forgettable messes (ie: Tera and TSW, not the expansions to quality games mentioned above) in comparison.  SWTOR didn't have to do anything but show up.

    Those are all BLOG entries and the ninth one down I posted.  It says nothing about disappointment.  Did you consider the list on that page may not be the same list I'm seeing?  It's a category feed.

    DO YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO ACTUALLY POST THE LINK TO THE ARTICLE?  My request is very simple, yet I don't see either one of you posting that article.  A link to a long list of articles is silly.  So you can rage against my reading comprehension all you want but until you can actually post a link to the blog post I think the fail is in your court.

    I find the hypocricy and double standards in your post really staggering.

    It goes both ways you know. Do you even see the irony in your posts for calling Jeff out as a bitter fanboy when you are yourself a fanboy of GW2 and come across very bitter towards TSW?

    Do you guys ever read your own posts before hitting enter?

  • botrytisbotrytis In Flux, MIPosts: 2,567Member
    I did like parts of both TSW (the story) and TERA (the graphics and combat mechanics). I did at least try them and did find both positive and negative points (the same for GW2 for me). Unfortunately, with the previous 2 games, the negatives, for me, did outweigh the positives.

    This.  I think it's good for any MMO to be seen in the limelight, even if you don't care for it.  It gets developers to up the ante and I believe we all benefit from the exposure... except sandbox fans who apparently benefit from nothing in existence.

    Rift was actually heavily advertised in movie theaters during its vanilla release.  Not sure which specific titles but I saw it several times on the big screen.

    And if Rift was truly doing well Trion wouldnt have laid off 1/3 of Rift's staff (and these werent SL contracters, these were long term people who werent expecting to be fired).  Yes, some of that had to do with the delays and failures of EoN but if Rift was doing that well the layoffs wouldnt have been so severe.

    As far as compeition goes.. GW2 had a huge advert campaign behind it and one manifesto video was enough to put it on the top of hype and anticipation. That is why i used the word 'high profiled'. No other MMO ahd such a  backing or blew things out of proportion with statements like 'we want to beat WOW in sales'. So yeah GW2 had no compeition because the only release was one low key TSW with next to no advertising, an asian MMO Tera and one expansion for Rift. But if you want to call that compeition sure..but for me GW2 hardly had any.
