GW2 actually legit feels dead. If its top end heavy, that means its like EQ2 and getting barely any new players and everyones at the top...but that means a top heavy game isn't growing which leads to death.
I can be in divinity's reach, the human starting area, any starting area and the game is so quiet. No one is chatting. Johhny depp: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmVzDXe1sN4
Sometimes people chat, but it isn't like a year ago when I played last where the game felt super busy
GW2 I'm pretty sure isn't top 5 MMOs anymore.
Compared to WoW/BDO or ESO or even FFXIV, people everywhere in all 4 and people chatting on almost every server. There is rarely a moment of quietness in any of them
GW2, it feels like the game population has tanked. And if everyone is at the max level zones, it still means it isn't getting new players. I am genuinelly sad, because I wanted to enjoy it, but I was in so many zones and chat was literally dead
last year? Complete opposite. Game chat was alive, people everywhere. Dunno what happened the past year...but it isn't looking good for GW2
