GUILD WARS 2 FREE TRIAL REVIEW

    I actually think Papaprika secretly likes this game.

    He scored Secret World 0/5 in a similar type of review and called FFARR diarrhoea in a box. GW2 gets a mighty 2/5 and he even says he might buy it after he's bored with RIFT and the price drops. High praise indeed!

    He obviously just has quite strict scoring criteria and probably didn't want to give it a higher score for fear of being called a fan boi.

    Just wanted to jump in and point out that this is not true. Not true, everybody. Carry on :)

    Ok then, how is this not true?  Every rift event I was ever in was exactly like this.  What rifts are you taking part in?

    Since when is Tuesday a direction?

    Your Screenshot

     

     

    How the camera looks fully zoomed out

     

     

    So please, stop lying and spreading false information about the game in order to depict it in a bad way. You are not criticizing the game, you are hating on it.

    Edit: After reading your post again it came to my mind that you meant "MAX ZOOM" as in zoomed in and that you where experimenting with the camera. If thats the case then it's very strange that you show us the picture and say "This is what my first epic battle looked like...Camra was crap. Monster to big."  because it was obviously your own fault.

    It's like wearing sunglasses inside and then complaining that the sunglasses are too dark.

    Strange seems mine and Papaprika's post in reply to this one got deleted.

    To be fair his picture is max zoom from were hes standing ( Yes he is standing inbettwen the elementals hands having his back to the second one, so i cant for the life of me understand how he think he can zoom out with that giant obsticale in the way)

    Edit

    You Thomson is standing in a more resonable spot were players usualy stand if they want to see whats going on.

  • ThomsonThomson DortmundPosts: 243Member

    Yeah some posts got deleted, who knows why.

     

    Anyway my point stands, the OP's review is heavily biased, it's quite hard to overlook the fact that he seems to try quite hard to make the game look bad.

     

    This review contains way to many complains that are either made up, based on  false information, are not used in context or are plain unreasonable and the OP doesn't even react on the valid points that some users made in regards to his review.

    I don't want to constrain anyones opinion about the game here. Feedback is always important and reviews are a great way to sum up feedback and i certainly have no problem with people disliking GW2 or any other game for that matter as long as they have some reasoning behind it.

    Because otherwise constructive criticism turns into old boring whining and badmouthing.

    Lock this thread, it has to be the biggest flamebait thread of the decade.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    Wow, so much stuff that simply isn't true, and such a long post too. Why bother? Anyone who knows the game can tell what kind of post this is.

    ACtually it is all true. Funny if it is all positive and only picks on the light stuff like "sound could use work, but it is ok, its free right? HIYUK:" than that is tolerable. Tell the truth and nothing but the truth and that is "long post, so wrong oh my". 

    But hey, I have played this game long enough (End character from Closed beta) to know exactly what it is. And I have been in mmorpg long enough (just go to the archives of this GW2 forum) and see the mass brainless fanboisme that exists. In fact, this account and my 10 others get cut if they are not super promotional happy go lucky. Thankfully I am a writer for another website (freedom of speech rules there and i get easy 4K views a day). Any ways. Enjoy the serving of freedom king sized with reality.

    I'm happy for you and your success as a writer elsewhere. Unfortunately many of your statements have been proven to be false throughout this thread. You just seem to ignore those statements.

     

    I'm disappointed in myself for taking the bait

    You can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into.

    Yep. Its kind of funny because there are tons of really valid reasons to dislike this game, it isn't like you need to make up a bunch of things to try to post something negative about the game. The OP seemed to think he had to though.

    Sorry, but you aren't fooling anyone.  Besides, you just contradicted yourself by claiming to have played the game "long enough (end character from closed beta), when you admitted in your first post that this was your FIRST TIME playing GW2

I missed the last free trial because I did not want to install all those gigs for 2 days, and I had fear it would not run good on my 5 year old lap top (ATI mobility Radeon HD 5470 1gb native, with 8gigs on the ASUS system and a 2gig power boost).

    Now that the cat's out of the bag, well I'm sure everyone is thinking what I'm thinking, but let's give you the benefit of the doubt.  Mind explaining how this free trial could have been your first experience with the game when you CLEARLY have played the game since the beta?

    Since when is Tuesday a direction?

    I'm not fooling anyone? Who uses that language? Grandma? Are you a 12 year old GW2 fanboi in grandmas basement? "your not fooling anyone little johnny, get back in the basement". It is all true. I can even post a link where the original article came from (This is just a copy and PASTE from my original site). Everytime I post a link to other mmorpgs sites this site removes the post and blocks my account (it prefers we all discuss and stay in here...further proving my point RIGHT). 

    Maybe I have an idea.

    Maybe if I try something new. Read the letters on the FAR LEFT of this post in capitals. That is my original site. I also have

    Other sites like my personal gameing blog.

    So go ahead and check it out. 

    It looks like you can use grandmas one liners to support a an obvious fail title.

    That said. There are good points you all seem to look over in my review. I even say this game works for a certain crowd.

    Either way. I win. Thaks for laying, my last post on this obviously correct thread.

    Yes you win, because you called everyone who disagreed with you a "fanboi" and claimed that their opinions were null and void due to their "fanboi-ness" (ad hominem fallacy btw), and then claim to be a writer for another MMO gaming website without providing a link to anything you have written (oh and I did a search on said site and you don't exist there so nice try but no).

    The only thing you won was a horrifying loss.

    P.S.  We saw the "good points" you mentioned, and saw them for what they were: failed attempts to hide your true intentions.

    I play the game quite frequently and I think some of its major drawbacks are how zergy combat is and the lack of much to do at endgame. There is little to do in terms of gear progression, and the living story tends to be on the weak side.

    You can't reason someone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into.

    And were did they state that they would have gear progression? from what i remember they stated to opposite.

    WvW, Dungeons, living story every other week, map completion legendary/ascended weapon crafting and armor in the works.

    Thats more then most games.

    Grinding new dungeons or raids for gear that will be obsolite when the next tier of dungeons and raids come is considered more content?

     

    I do admit that WvW feels abit zergy but its fun when 40 people take out dubble their force just becouse they play coordinated.

     

    Living story to each their own its been fine imo but im hugely dissapointed by this years hallowen content

  • DocBrodyDocBrody EldridgePosts: 1,820Member
    I never liked this game during beta, glad I skipped that one. Too casual, too repetitive, bad story/cutscenes -- pass
  • altairraltairr SenecPosts: 81Member

    Totally fail-like review. The writer haven´t even understood, What is guild wars 2 about, because he haven´t even done the whole story, not only one dungeon, nor the pvp / WvWvW ... nothing he just done a few events and "hearths" and thats the whole GW2 for him :-D .... how childish.

     

    But nice try.
