Originally posted by HomiesliceThis game is actually not that good. Do you know what this game is? Its almost as good as COH/COV, WoW, EVE, Saga of Ryzom. But the trump card is THE NO MONTHLEY FUCKING FEEE!!!!! WOOT........... This game will probably be as good as TMO, SWG, or DAOC if there was a monthley fee. Its better than all those crappy free mmorpgs but not as good as the big boy mmorpgs. Nobody will play this game if there was a monthley fee, it isn't worth it. This game doeson't make you paranoid if your not playing it, because therse no monthley fee. So all you people that are complimenting this game and flaming me, check yourself out, and ask yourself, "If this game had a monthley fee will I still play it". That's all I ask.
But if this game is "almost" as good as COH/COV,WOW,EVE and Saga of ryzom this game very good and better when you don't need to pay monthly fees
Excuse me I'm new to this topic, but may I ask:
Homeslice, how old are you and have you even played GW for more then 5 minutes before?
No offense, but people here are making reasonable arguments to your seemingly childish comments about how you think GW suck and hate it. I feel that this is your personal opinion and you should not try to force your will upon others who find the game enjoyable.
Frankly I don't care if GW is free or not, whether its instanced or not and other crap. I play the game because its a lot less stressful then certain other games I've played before (where people openly treat eachother like asses). I don't have to worry about people comming to kill steal or loot me, and players don't get into each other's way. If I don't like what I am hearing on the chats, I can turn it off and ignore people. I don't have to worry about trying to reach the highest level just to enjoy PvPs, GvGs and others. In fact, I prefer to PvP GvG with my RP char then make a PvP char and I can stand my ground fairly against many opponents though I do not have all the best stuff and elite skills. (I've played some MMOs before where most of the power was biased for certain builds and other builds had no chance what so ever). I find this game to be one of the fairest games for any player and any build.
And think about this:
You pay like $15.00 per month for WoW and other similar games, for GW its a deal of pay $50.00 once and play, and you can take a break from the game without having to keep paying a monthly fee to keep your account active. Imagine you wanting to take a break for 1 month because you have school or vacation, and you're playing WoW, it would be a $15.00 waste for that 1 month (of course since I have never played WoW I maybe wrong about how this works). But I know there are games which are like this.
Of course there are other free games but GW has the quality of many P2P games like WoW and EVE and such, yet still almost as cheap as completely free games. It has a nice balance of 'quality and quantity'.

Oh yes, another thing I like about this game. Unlike several other games out there (but not all), the quests and battles in this game require team work and strategy. Sure in the early missions and quests you can win by shear numbers or using henchmen, but later on only teams which work together can finish a mission.
In GWP there is this one mission where in the end you have to defend a fort (I don't currently recall the name of that quest) from invading monsters and in the fort they give you seige weapons. I've done that mission with several teams many times over just for the fun of it and I realized most of them didn't use those weapons and the enemy overwhelmed us. Most of the time we believe just because we have a team with powerful players we can win, but I really like that idea that we have to sometimes also use what resources we have on the map in order to win. Its quite challanging.
heh , thats really in the early missions , all i can tell you is , you aint seen nothing yet
i really love the end game zones , Fow/Uw/Tomb/Sorrow/Elite Missionsnot just good team , but the puzles before you or anyone in the team knows how to do it , its just hard as hellbefore this zones came out , i use to do the so called last mission , hell of percipice just for the fun of it , like you said , now i do it in this areas , i cant get bored of it.
Whenever i step outside, somebody claims to see the lightIt seems to me that all of us have lost our patience.'cause everyone thinks they're right,And nobody thinks that there just mightBe more than one road to our final destination--
