I'm sure I will get hit hard for this but this is my honest opinion so far. I like many others have waited a long time for this game and at 9:00pm last night was on the computer ready to see they came up early with it.
First off the launch. A little laggy but I feel the best launch of a huge MMO is my history or at least that I have been apart of. The lag got taken care of very quickly, overflow areas instead of server wait queues have been awesome overall 9/10 on launch.
Gameplay is where it starts to go downhill for me. I know people will say if you like the same old crap then go play Wow. I don't have a problem with the gameplay or the dynamic events or the pvp other then I feel they are slow and pretty boring. Sure dynamic events are cool you have 20 or 30 or 40 people hacking away at the same huge mob but really it's just chaos. I have never once had any social interaction with a Dynamic Event group it is just tons of random people doing their own thing. That does not count as a strong community for me. Movement speed and combat seems to be kind of slow and boring, I have 6 classes I have tried(bought a extra char slot) and so far every one is pretty much turn on auto attack and hit whatever is not on cooldown. WvWvW pvp seems to have much of the same social problems that Dynamic events do.
Don't get me wrong I do enjoy the game and will continue to play it on a part time level since there is no sub fee for it but unless you are young or a this is your first MMO(which this would be a great game if you never have played a MMO before) I just don't see how this could be a everyday game.
Yes I know this is day 1 and I have not gotten to a lot of continent and I'm not going to give up on it, it could get better but right now its maybe 7/10.
