    It lost any interest to me to see people and guilds hop from server to server each week. Zero faction pride mixed with zero server pride just made the WvWvW pointless to me. 

    AFAIK, it is still 1 week CD on server swaps.

    There has to be some overall trends to the server swapping that Anet views as beneficial.  Maybe the populations are still auto balancing.  If not, I would have to assume Anet would have stopped free transfers by now.

    Are you seriously complaining about getting over one thousand hours of enjoyment out of a Buy to Play game?  You paid the same amount for Guild Wars 2 as you did Skyrim, so why did you expect more?  The original Guild Wars only provided less than 20 hours of content before you were forced to grind for pointless equipment or do pointless arena battles with little to no reward.  Man, gamers sure are spoiled these days.  I don't think I've ever played a game for more than one thousand hours anyway.

    You must get bored of single player games and regular multiplayer games in less than 1-2 days.

    Simply not true. Until this year people played mmorpgs for years with years /played.

    Lets see BC ....you have jumped from TSW...Rift ...Wow...Swtor ....and now Wushu( did I miss DF2) in the same amount of time some of us have played GW2 ... The trend of folks jumping from one band wagon to another has been a topic of conversation since early 2007 when it  first became really noticable that few games kept any population after the intial 30 days free period was over

    Nope nice try check my history. TSW and 500+ skills?! forgive me. Never a fan of swtor, played WoW for years, quit 2 years ago(dumbing down thing), lots of respect for RIFT and trion, never post about them though. feel free to check my history. You have me confused. I joined earlier this year.

     

    edit- I just looked at you post history. Look at the first thing I looked at. You said the exact same thing to someone else. Here's the quote and thread. 

    "....jumped on the bandwagon for TSW...Rift ...WOW ...SWtor ..and now DF2 in the same period of time?"

    You got me with that one, good one image

    I don't think you read the OP properly. The OP wasn't complaining. He's just saying he hit a wall. WTF are you on?

    He wasn't complaining about anything. He just said that he's experienced as much of the game as he wants to for now. Why be so aggressively touchy? Why call people "spoiled" for completing what they want in a game? I'm not sure I'll ever understand the need for people like you to immediately attack anyone you've perceived as providing feedback that differs from your own.

    I guess! Some days i play just a few hours, some days i never get off. eh.

    Will miss those days once i run outta carrots i wanna eat.

    i wish i would be able to play so much time,

    i have also a big age, but lot of time is afk and wasted hours with my gf, actually not wasted cause we have plenty fun :P but not so productive :p

    usually if you just start a dynamic event from its beggining its pretty funny and kills your time awesomely (this word exists? )

    in the vacations also i cant play : /

     

    happy new yeaarrr : )

    Ok so you're a stay at home parent. I'm a stay at home parent too. Out of curiosity, how old is your child? I don't have time to game AT ALL during the day. I log on for a few hours at night after my son is in bed. If I do have a minute of free time, I try to get some chores done around the house. So what is your secret?

    Glad you more than got your money's worth from the game though. I feel I have as well, and my highest character just hit 60.

    Oh yes!!! please define "FUN" and give any tips how we can get it at GW2! Thanks in advance!!!

    try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
    Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

    LMAO guy played so damn much he has experienced everything in the game... um... did you not think this was going to happen?  Eventually theres going to be nothing new, no shit.
  • shingoukiehshingoukieh Fayetteville, NCPosts: 125Member
    To add to the op post I have less than half his time playing.. But I feel like getting gear is secondary.. All the stats are around the same...and I asked myself what is gonna happen when I get the items I was grinding for...this game needs raids or more options to use or op like gear on a smaller scale..

    Bottom line wow is superior. Will I play wow? No. I'll keep grinding this out...

    Its sad when I have AC armor but doing TA just for looks...what else is there to do lol

    I have so much trouble with this statement. 

     

    How long should your mmorpg  last? When people say "you got your money's worth" concerning GW2, are they saying that it was built to be a 3-4 month game?

     Put 1000 hours into any game, themepark or sandbox, and you will get bored of it. No game has an infinite amount of things to do. Most  just hide this behind broken progression which doesnt get fixed until they are ready to release new content.

    PvP is the only thing that will give different outcomes every time you do it. So for players that arent into PvP and play more than development can push out content, any game will eventually run out of steam.

    No and that's the problem.  WoW mainstreamed MMOs by removing what others thought to be tedious (the journey).  GW2 just accelerated this to a point that it makes WoW look hardcore.

    This "casual" MMO style is really eliminating the one thing that made MMOs so unique: longevity.

    It's very easy to not run out of things to do when everything has long lock outs, terrible drop rates, dozens of different gear set requirements for each class, and most importantly exclusivity.  When items take years to acquire, obviously the dedicated will play it for years.

    I loved XI as well and put an unhealthy amount of days played into that game, but let's not forget how much time per day was wasted by terrible mechanics.  I'm a fan of the journey myself as well, but i think it was handled poorly in XI.
