    In your OP you say you tried GW2 for first time but your post history suggest otherwise? seems like you had lot to say about GW2 and its game features not so long ago.

     

    I am confused as hell..so did you or did you not play this game before?

     I have watched videos and read reviews, based upon that I have also been involved in a few posts where GW2 has been mentioned, I don't think I have ever said I played the game, did I ?

    I may even ..If I recall correctly ..Gotten abit annoyed of all the GW2 players that came inside the TSW forum and spread all kinds of crap of that game..

     Is that forbidden unless you are an active player ?

    Furthermore, I have no clue in what I said in discussions that are 2-6 Months old; i don't actually care either, but It seems you do..:)

    Since you obviously wanted to target me as some sort of "troll" with your accusations, It seems to me that looking up someone elses post history to prove some sort of conspiracy teory to other posters, is as far as my concern far more ugly that actually partaking in discussions without any real ingame experience of the game in question..

    Besides that, we have internet every person can today get great info of a game by just looking at reviews and interviews ..But as far as that goes I have actually felt that GW2 was something to play before I actually played it yesterday, but for some reason the game passed me by (other games got purchased before) ..During release of GW2 I played alot of TSW and that Is one reason I didnt get on the GW2 train

     

     

    So let me guess..if i remember your name from months ago when you were heavily active on GW2 forums and had lot to say about grouping mechanics and how game feels a solo fest...and then i read a topic from where you write 'i have never tried the game before' what will be my first reaction?

    It is not about trying to accuse you for anything but i had to amke sure that i wasn't wrong. So you are telling me you were all up in the arms without playing the game? i criticise a lot of games but difference is that i atleast play them first extensively.

    All your crticism of the game was based on videos and reviews? because you sounded very sure of what you were saying.

    So please tell me how anyone can take you seriously now? i would never ever crticise a game on basis of videos i saw and what others say about it.

    May i suggest you get the action combat mod? obviously doesn't change the game but atleast it makes the combat a bit more interesting atleast. You will be able to enjoy the game a bit longer with it on

     I havent played GW2 yet either, but it is pretty scary when he says that TSW is even better........

    GW2 is a great game for some...not so for others. The problems with GW2 (to name a few):

    -When you get to end game and did all the dailies and saved all the Karma points you will have problems getting to npc's to buy armour on some servers because they are not there as the population is too low to re-take Grenth and Balth, and sometimes the other ones. Usually Mel, Lyssa, and Dwayna are cleared at some point (and Arah less and less it seems). So the system is not working as well as it should be.

    -Some dynamic events do not scale down very well so you have to skip them unless someone shows up.

    -No mounts..not fun when you are on a class (like Mesmer) that does not have a good and consistant speed boost.

    -No land mass expansion planned

    -Crafting is laborious and just not worth it in some crafts.

    -Sonic periscopes...geez I hate those things. For those of us who do not want to do that story they are a pain. I am avoiding those areas until this even is over.

    Well..I'm not sure where all the glowing reviews come from , but for me this game felt very bad, cheasy and simply uninspired..

    From remembering the countless complains about The Secrets Worlds poor combat and animations, wich I never felt that they were bad, but this combat that is almost the same type but with fantasy weaponry feels like super bad when you compare them. I get  feeling the combat simply is not connecting to the enemies enough..

    Furthermore , I get the feeling my character doesn't blend in well in the enviorments, It feels almost as she's cut and pasted ontop of a postcard or something.

    The outdoor and vistas are nice looking thou, but alas they are not going to give me a reason enough to go explore the world when the rest of the game feels cheasy and uninspired.

    I'm glad I didnt shell out the 60 Euros needed to try this.

    TSW is by all counts a far greater product, even TRIONS new Defiance and even RIft feels better than this game.

    Game on !! :))

      

    I said something similar after 1st beta weekend and i got baned for 3 days. Said almost the same when game got out and again i got 3 days ban from the site.

    100% agree on your point of view on the game but I would add some more spice but dont want to make additional work to the admins to ban me again.

    So the game is cheesy and simply uninspired? Do you care to elaborate? What exactly about GW2 is so cheesy? Cause I never got that feeling while playing it. 

    From remembering the countless complains about The Secrets Worlds poor combat and animations, wich I never felt that they were bad, but this combat that is almost the same type but with fantasy weaponry feels like super bad when you compare them. I get  feeling the combat simply is not connecting to the enemies enough..

    I found that combat was okayish. I kind of agree with you on this one. I have never played The Secret World so  I can't comment on your comparison but indeed when I play GW2 I can't feel the impact of my spells/weapons. However, I have learnt to live with this because literally every single MMO I have played is horrible in this regard. The combat is not responsive and impactful. WoW is the only MMO that takes this kind of responsiveness to the next level and it's brilliant how well the animation and combat are done in that game. I have played so many MMOs and they all suck hard in the animation/combat department compared to WoW. The EQ series are horrendous in this regard.

    Furthermore , I get the feeling my character doesn't blend in well in the enviorments, It feels almost as she's cut and pasted ontop of a postcard or something.

    I haven't had this impression.

    The outdoor and vistas are nice looking thou, but alas they are not going to give me a reason enough to go explore the world when the rest of the game feels cheasy and uninspired.

    I'm glad I didnt shell out the 60 Euros needed to try this.

    Where do you live? In the UK the game is only 30 pounds, maybe even less. From a quick check it's about 35-40 euros in Germany/France.

    TSW is by all counts a far greater product, even TRIONS new Defiance and even RIft feels better than this game.

    Game on !! :))

    Not really huge on the heavy negative post, but still will admit a lot of your points are pretty much the same as my gripes.

     

    Combat to me felt WAY like Secret World, though even worst off then it to be blunt. It bothered me a lot when it launched so many people complaiend against TSW combat yet played ignorant to the fact GW2 combat was quite similiar in feeling.

    The environments/characters had that same disconnect for me where they just felt out of place, the environments really needing to embrace a bit cartoony style to create more impressive visuals.

     

    Just if you review it, its good to include the good side. Yes, GW2 fanbois seem to praise it as a holy graal and seem to find 'no wrong' with it, but its silly to follow their lines and to see 'no good' (granted you did mention vistas as a partial posative).

     

    The game has some (decent) concepts that do spice things up a little bit more giving more 'static' events (sorry I refuse to call them Dynamic, they aren't) that do give a change up from normal questing (hearts) that are relatively reliable to run into unless you miss out on its start. Crafting had some great ideas in it, even if they weren't fully explored to their potential. Dungeons (ignoring other factors of them) are nice in trying to split up the paths, which in a way pushes for more varied dungeon play if it was elaborated and made better (outside the mess that is dungeon play). WvWvW has potential given its features are fully realized, granted the execution can be quite lack luster in GW2 it does at least push for it. Over-all, no where near 'game changing' as people claimed and not THAT good. Still, its silly to ignore some of the posatives, as it does have a few good ideas and the art style is pretty good outside feeling not full explored for enviornments.

     

    Over-all its good that you tried the game out. As much as I dislike GW2 (particularly because the fanbois) I still always suggest people try a game out a game if possible and give it a chance since you never know.

    I really can't tell if people are using this free trial as another excuse to bash the game, or if the trial they were playing was a completely different game.

    I understand not liking it, but some of these criticisms make absolutely no sense. For example, saying the combat in GW2 is like TSW's is just... wrong on so many lvls I wouldn't know where to start. Character's don't feel integrated and are like 'paper cutouts' !? wtf.. This also makes no sense to me. Not only are there tons of little details that do the exact opposite, but there' nothing 2d about the character models.

    I know some of these people don't even know it, but they're basically trying to argue that a game with objectively better animations, more complex combat, and better graphics; is somehow inferior on all of them because they didn't like the game.

    I must disagree with this. I played all classes to at least level 25 and they all end up feeling like you are playing the same character. You have a jump back special and a jump to the mob special with every character. Some classes and starting areas are a little better, but it ends up being boring regardless. It isn't a bad game, but it also isn't the revolutionary MMO that everyone made it out to be.

    If you did this with every character, then it is no wonder you only made it to lvl 25. Guessing you died alot. Furthermore, which Mesmer skill specifically allows you to jump into a mob and wtf would you even do that? A mesmer wears cloth armor and that would be just a dumb thing to do. Your reply is not making you look very intelligent. Nobody with any brains would play a mage class like that.

    All classes, to me, had that been there done that feel. I am not talking about obvious class differences, I am talking about the feel of the game

     

     

    You mean the feeling of all mmos?  Welcome to the genre.

    How about this.

     

    I played the game at release for about two months.  It made no progression, on degressed.  It is not a good game.  Most games out right now are much better.  End of fucking story.  GW2 is bad.

    The user scores on Metacritic actually started decreasing recently, citing the addition of "progression" as the reason, because that's not why people bought it.  End of fucking story.  You like different kinds of games.

    I agree totally. GW2 combat is so much different than TSW. I like them both but they feel different imho. 

    I guess what matters most is that there are thousands of players who enjoy it and the negative comments are from those who just don't care for it. It's not a big dealio.

    My only gripe is everyone that has there opinion about a game and it's negative, never posts what they are playing that is superior. If we are all here to discuss mmorpgs, we should have the courtesy of helping each other once in a while. :)

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

     Heavily Active ?...From what I can remember I wrote a couple of times in the GW2 forum , the reason was mosty because fans of GW2 were herassing TSW forums..They came out at very much the same time at Funcoms demise..:)

    All things I have said about GW2  is things that should be common knowledge(atleast I think so) And If I said I disliked solo friendly games in a converstion about GW2 , well..then It's because It's common knowledge that GW2 is rather solo friendly..Isnt that right ?

    And..Ok..You got me..I lost all my credibilty now :) 

    Not exactly sure what you are trying to prove even,   It's not that you would agree with me on my view of GW2 anyway even after I actually played it...Or would you ?

    -Im not trustworthy ;) So you guys that agree with me , you can't !! I'm Sorry..

    So..can we please drop this extremly silly conversation  were you try to discredit me and I'm trying to defend myself..I didnt play It before, but now I did...

    And so you don't get any other bright ideas I played it very short and I tried 2 classes one Asura Necromancer and one Human Ranger..The Human ranger felt better than the Asura Necromancer..

    And as I said in my starter  post, I played it "very limited" so It would indicate that I have very low experience with the game, If I would be trying to bully you GW2 fans for your game or even have the slightest reason to do so..I would never even have mentioned this at all .

    You need to explain it to these folks, they along with thousands of others missed your comment.

    edit: And because people don't like something doesn't necessarily make it "bad". If you don't like it so be it, it's still an awesome game to many of us including critiics who have scored it as an outstanding game.

    I was refering to what the game costed back then at release..I haven't looked up the price right now , but I can see that the price has dropped to  37.99 Euro at the official GW2 site, but also has this "regularly 54.99" so don't know if it's on sale or anything..

    Actually the graphics and character animations are quite nice, don't know what you were smoking through your trial. You say that TSW is better? Okay, now I know you're on drugs, considering the animations and graphics for The Failed World was like trying to drive a car with square wheels. You should get yourself checked into a rehab clinic asap.

    This is a bit childish, but since several posters has stamped me as untrustworthy etc just for partaking in discussions in the GW2 forums without mentioning that I actually did not play GW2 back then, just to discredit my opening post..Well..:)

    this is a poll from 08/22-2012 where is specifically say that I do not have any intentions of playing GW2 until I grow tired of TSW..

    http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/post/5231310#5231310

     

    Well. I also read some of the posts in the actual GW2 forums, the things I said was  in GW2 threads , but things like "forced soloing" contra "grouping" is subjects that holds special interesst to me..I never once (atleast not in the posts I read) said I was actually playing this game..I also didnt say I wasn't playing the game thou..But I can't see how that should be needed in every single post you make..

    game on :)

    In my opinion, the combat experience in GW2 is far, far superior to the experience presented in TSW. TSW shined in the way quests were delivered and the setting was interesting (with perhaps some cheesy dialog), but the combat in TSW is pretty close to my least favorite of any AAA MMORPG.

    He is talking about heart events where once you complete it you go back to NPC to get armor, weapons etc.

    Yeah, the obvious flaw in this was the first part of the sentence "Talk to this person chase that goal".  as you do not have to talk to any npc to get a goal. You just simply enter an area and get it. This person clearly never played because that is part of the game everywhere.

    Does it really matter though? I understood what he is getting at. The whole quest system in GW2 really isn't all that revolutionary. It is the same crap in a different skin. Only now it is auto accept and auto turn-in. Same boring tasks. I like some parts of the game and it isn't bad overall. It just doesn't have that catch for me. It is kind of bland and nothing really stands out......

     As I said , It's almost the same combat as TSW, that would indicate that I moved and fought at the same time..

    In your OP you say you tried GW2 for first time but your post history suggest otherwise? seems like you had lot to say about GW2 and its game features not so long ago.

     

    I am confused as hell..so did you or did you not play this game before?

     I have watched videos and read reviews, based upon that I have also been involved in a few posts where GW2 has been mentioned, I don't think I have ever said I played the game, did I ?

    I may even ..If I recall correctly ..Gotten abit annoyed of all the GW2 players that came inside the TSW forum and spread all kinds of crap of that game..

     Is that forbidden unless you are an active player ?

    Furthermore, I have no clue in what I said in discussions that are 2-6 Months old; i don't actually care either, but It seems you do..:)

    Since you obviously wanted to target me as some sort of "troll" with your accusations, It seems to me that looking up someone elses post history to prove some sort of conspiracy teory to other posters, is as far as my concern far more ugly that actually partaking in discussions without any real ingame experience of the game in question..

    Besides that, we have internet every person can today get great info of a game by just looking at reviews and interviews ..But as far as that goes I have actually felt that GW2 was something to play before I actually played it yesterday, but for some reason the game passed me by (other games got purchased before) ..During release of GW2 I played alot of TSW and that Is one reason I didnt get on the GW2 train

     

     

    So let me guess..if i remember your name from months ago when you were heavily active on GW2 forums and had lot to say about grouping mechanics and how game feels a solo fest...and then i read a topic from where you write 'i have never tried the game before' what will be my first reaction?

    It is not about trying to accuse you for anything but i had to amke sure that i wasn't wrong. So you are telling me you were all up in the arms without playing the game? i criticise a lot of games but difference is that i atleast play them first extensively.

    All your crticism of the game was based on videos and reviews? because you sounded very sure of what you were saying.

    So please tell me how anyone can take you seriously now? i would never ever crticise a game on basis of videos i saw and what others say about it. 

     Heavily Active ?...From what I can remember I wrote a couple of times in the GW2 forum , the reason was mosty because fans of GW2 were herassing TSW forums..They came out at very much the same time at Funcoms demise..:)

    All things I have said about GW2  is things that should be common knowledge(atleast I think so) And If I said I disliked solo friendly games in a converstion about GW2 , well..then It's because It's common knowledge that GW2 is rather solo friendly..Isnt that right ?

    And..Ok..You got me..I lost all my credibilty now :) 

    Not exactly sure what you are trying to prove even,   It's not that you would agree with me on my view of GW2 anyway even after I actually played it...Or would you ?

    -Im not trustworthy ;) So you guys that agree with me , you can't !! I'm Sorry..

    So..can we please drop this extremly silly conversation  were you try to discredit me and I'm trying to defend myself..I didnt play It before, but now I did...

    And so you don't get any other bright ideas I played it very short and I tried 2 classes one Asura Necromancer and one Human Ranger..The Human ranger felt better than the Asura Necromancer..

    And as I said in my starter  post, I played it "very limited" so It would indicate that I have very low experience with the game, If I would be trying to bully you GW2 fans for your game or even have the slightest reason to do so..I would never even have mentioned this at all .

     

     

     

    Read the first page again. I was the fool who tried to defend you against the angry fans. Why? because i was under the impression that you actually gave your genuine feedback after playing the game for first time. I had no idea you made posts on GW2 earlier on criticising the game on pure hear say.

    So yeah i did take your feedback seriously till i reallised that you already had a lot to say about GW2 and its game features and icing on the cake? you didn't even play GW2 untill now.

    By the way anyone can get a common knowledge on basis of what you see in videos and what others write on the forums. But smart people make their own mind before arriving to conclusions. You jumped the gun because you couldn't help yourself and you had to say something bad about GW2. That is the problem there and that is why these forums are such a mess.

     If only you had waited to actually play the game and then given your criticism people would have taken what you said more seriously.

    And stop referring to me as a "GW2 fan'. I am not a fan of any MMO around here and if i was a GW2 fan i would never defend your right to opinion on very first page. A mistake i will never make again.

    Yet again people are saying TSW and GW2 combat are miles different, anyone care to elaborate?

    - Both have non tab targeting combat

    - Both can dodge

    - Both have auto aim spells/skills

    - Both hit the target infront regardless if you wanted to aim at the one on the back

    So what is so revolutionary on GW2 that makes it so different?

    All I can think at the top of my head is the possibility on making skill combos but apart of that what else?

    ---

    OP you are not the only one that didn't get a good feeling at the start of the game even I didn't but I forced msyelf to keep on going and was enjoying it afterwards. I started as sylvari mesmer in melee which is something not many try to do as mesmer is a little squishy but I found it fun with the sword/pistol combos and blowing clones can be fun :)

    GW2 is not the revolutionary game people keep on saying but it's not crap either.

    GW2 is a good casual filler mmorpg, that's what it has always been. If you play few hours a day it will be a game designed just for you. If you play 6+h per day then I'd suggest not to touch it unless you are new to mmorpg's.
