GW2 is a Failure [mod edit]

LithiumTeaLithiumTea Shelby Township, MIPosts: 16Member

FOV = Headache

Jumping Puzzles = Rage

Cookie Cutter HUD with no options = Frustration

Bots everywhare = more Frustration

Goldsink = Anger

Crafting System  that  does not offer you any opportunity to make some gold = Pissed off

 

Man I could keep going...

 

It appears to me that most of WvW is nothing more than Company Lacky's trying to keep the game alive...

Waste of time for me...

Started playing The Secret World today and fell in love with this game.... I will never play GW2. 

 

Just my opinion, take it for what it is.... no need to hate because I don't hate you!

Peace

    but I liked the GW2 jumping puzzles wish I could get more of them in games.

    bots . . .meh if your going to do PvP in online gameing get used to them there isn't a game without them at least they arnt hacking for invulnerability ( at least I hope not I haven't seen any)

    most of the other stuff I cant really argue with thought o be honest, but I am surprised TSW is your next stop but it norm is after GW2 im sure we will see you again soon, and if not hey more power to you I cant et into the way the game dose char design but if you like it go for it.

     

    F2P may be the way of the future, but ya know they dont make them like they used toimage

    I think it's pretty successful no matter if you personally like it or not.  They keep adding content keeping the current player base satiated until the next installment is released.  Though, I barely lasted 3 weeks in game before getting bored, I cannot deny that their was quite a large player base.

    What does FOV stand for?

    The jumping puzzles are hit and miss.  Some are fun, others want to make you want to tear your hair out.  My advice: find a Mesmer who knows how to do it, and ask them to lay down a teleport down in areas you can't seem to get across.

    Cookie cutter HUD?  What the heck are you talking about?  It's a minimalist HUD that is anything but cookie cutter.  Are you sure you aren't thinking of another game?

    Bots used to be a problem, but I haven't seen any in months.  Could be just a problem on your server.

    What does "goldsink" mean?  What is a goldsink?  Are you talking about a grind of some kind?  I don't understand.

    The crafting system isn't good for making money to start off, but when you can make the higher end gear, then it becomes good at making money.  But honestly, I don't think people are in it for the gold, but the legendary weapons.

    Since when is Tuesday a direction?

    Where you wrote "I will never play GW2", you must have meant "I will never play GW2 again".

    Jumping puzzles are great, I love them, I had fun doing them.

    Bots, there is no bots, I havent seen a single bot in 7 months now, I only saw a gold seller once. I reported him, never saw him again.

    You cant make gold from crafting because of the global trading post, but I like global trading post

    Goldsink is necessary or the economy will be ruined like most of the other games

     

    ololo

     Not only this but he's also about 9 months late to the party lol.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Subscription Gaming, especially MMO gaming is a Cash grab bigger then the most P2W cash shop!

    Bring Back Exploration and lengthy progression times. RPG's have always been about the Journey not the destination!!!

    GW2 is just so different from the wow style end game gear-grind that 99% of mmos today emulate its hard for most of us to wrap our heads around it.

     

    I just came back to GW2 and am really enjoying it, once i wrapped my head around the fact they are really trying to do things differently from other games and got rid of some of my ridiculious expectations of what an mmo should be, I was able to really enjoy this sexy sexy game.

     

    Seriously people if your like me and left GW2  fustrated after a couple of months,  rethink your expectations and give GW2 another shot

    How To Be A Troll!

    Know the medium. Good trolling exposes loopholes or gaps in a forum or game’s defenses. You should be familiar enough with your game or forum to know how the system works and where there may be loopholes.

    Use mass quantities. The most extreme trolling often uses repetition. Intense trolling will repeatedly hit on something that will get a “…really…” response out of people. Usually, the more repetitious a trolling is, the more annoying it will be. Be sure to evaluate how much repetition is enough and how much is too much. Sometimes one hit is all it takes to appropriately troll.

    Be anonymous. Create an identity aside from your real life identity when trolling, especially when trolling strangers.

     

    You're a really bad Troll!

    ah ty,

    hmmm to be honest I never had any issue with that at all. never even really thought about it which is normally a even score with me when something works well enough that I don't even think about it it means it doing its job well and I don't have to give it any more though which is the way all basic components of games should be.

    That word, failure, doesn't mean what you think it does.

    I'm sure when the devs dig their way out of their pile of money their feeling are going to be hurt by this thread.
  • plescureplescure leicesterPosts: 370Member Uncommon

    the title of this thread should be "GW2 is a success despite what i think about it"

     

    just because you didnt like the game that doesnt mean it was a failure. if 95% of the peeps that played the game didnt like it, THEN it would be a failure.

    If someone is talking in general chat in a language you dont understand, chances are they're not talking to you. So chill out and stop bitching about it!

    And even then, if those 5 % of players that do like the game keep playing it and spending more money they they orriginally anticipated, the game is a success..

     

    For companies the success of a game is in the numbers.

     

    With the numbers of players still growing since the game released its definately a success.  Anyway, its kinda of stupid to base your ideas of a game being succesfull on a feeling, and thats what the OP does. success is a measurable thing, and only Anet knows if they met their financial and player numbers targets.

    Silly to do it on an alt account, why not do it on your main, I mean hey, all the "GW2 is the greatest ever" posts are at least on mains, even if they make as valid points as this thread (and by valid I mean useless) XD
  • TenkouseiTenkousei BrusselsPosts: 72Member Uncommon

    There are so many definitions of "failure" the word itself has lost all meaning. What do you define as failure? The absonce of monetary profit? A low retention rate past the first levels? An arbitrary number of subscribers? Let's settle this once and for all then.

    "A failure is the state of a game where a game has a retention rate of less than 5*Pi %, with a profit that is less than e*retention-rate*10^6 $ and its subcriber base is composed of less than 500 people, a pig and a yak in heat."

    There, that should be arbitrary enough for a standard.

    Now fail on!

    whether the game is successfully or a failure I think GW2 is extremely boring to play..
  • kabitoshinkabitoshin Posts: 758Member Uncommon
    Wow you are terrible at criticizing, come up with more legit reasons. Thanks for the laugh.
