OP  12/31/11 10:05:46 AM#1

What's up guys?

 

I made a video about a quote from one of the ArenaNet developers. He explains really well why Guild Wars 2 is different than other MMOs!

 

You can find the video here: 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iXdcJDRPZuU&feature=sh_e_top&list=SL

 

I figured I'd make a video like this to end the year 2011 on! What do you guys think about it?

 

Happy New Year everyone!

Hope is nature's way of enabling us to survive so that we can discover nature itself.

You play MMOs together with people and not alongside people, seems alesson we have forgotten since WoW entered the MM O market

Best MMO experiences : EQ(PvE), DAoC(PvP), WoW(total package) LOTRO (worldfeel) GW2 (Artstyle and animations and worlddesign) SWTOR (Story immersion) TSW (story) ESO (character advancement)

That one quote "playing alongside each other and not with each other" is what has been missing in MMO for years past... rift kinda had it with the rifts people completing the events that randomly spawn until they nerfed the crap outta them and they became a pain and you'd just wanna avoid them and not a need to go close them, and then they went the safe path with the LFG tools and everything like that.

These tools ruins communitys and people not interacting with each other, even with a simple "hello can a join your group?" doesnt exist anymore that I've noticed, and i think that's whats drives me away from games the communitys suck... but with GW2 (i've got my fingers crossed here) this will bring back the feeling of needing to work together and communitcate with others around you, thats whats missing in MMO's these days and we need that back. badly.

It's an MMO same old same old.

Until a developer removes end game/guilds/insta sell travel  and releases a real MMO we can actuall enjoy for more than a couple of months I am not really interested.

Longevity / Game Community not Guilds and a world that fights back i.e has some teeth are what makes a real good MMO sadly 95% of developers fail...

You know Im not sure what mmorpg class I fit in...

I love quests. I love crafting. I love community. I love challenge. I love raids. I love grouping. I suck at pvp. I hate linear paths. I love player housing. I love exploring. I hate class balancing. I hate kill 10 rats...

What I do know is that GW2 looks refreshing enough to try, and try it I will...

Again, thanks for sharing your enthusiasm with GW2.

I also believe this game will be a stepping stone for the genre and since 2005 i've been an avid follower of Anet and their concept of fantasy MMO. I don't expect every MMO to follow the same design style but i hope better game designs will be put out creating more diversity in the genre.

Happy New Year to you all.

While I don't get hyped for MMOs anymore, the vid does give me hope that we'll get something in the market that doesn't consist of soloing to the level cap then raid or die.

Prepare to be amazed, people not expecting to much will probably be stunned by the brilliance of GW2, i do envy you.

agreed with your comment, but must say I dont see it happen in GW2, as it is designed to letting you solo if you want to, in the DE´s they have several tasks needed to be done, that you can do alone....there may be diffrent difficulties ofc, but the few DE´s Ive seen promoted the playing along side each other, rather than playing together - am sure it is more effective to play together but that doesnt seem to be enough anymore.

well will see if the DEs get harder so when there is more than 1 player in it you "have to" work together to win, depending on player skill

Dont really want to jump on the hate wagon but... what does GW2 differ from other asian/korean games now again? The vid could describe pretty much any other mmo out on the market

Well, for one it's not an Asian MMO :).

I'll let others handle the rest (but while you wait for that, you could check out the GW2 posts stickied at the top of the forum).

I personally missed what some consider to be the golden age of MMOs. I never played Ultima or Everquest. I started out with an asian grindfest called Myth of Soma, then moved to WoW and tried every MMO since, which all feel the same.

I'm really excited for Guild Wars. Rift showed spots of absolute brilliance with the zonewide invasions that forced dozens of random players to band together and defend their town, but fumbled on the rest of the MMO aspects by just being the same thing again. Guild Wars looks like it'll be that and only that, constant fights over zones without your traditional quests.

I do fear monotomy though. The idea of events everywhere that people have to join intrigues me greatly, but sometimes you need a break too. Every now and then, I might just want to travel to a dungeon to kill some beasties by myself. What I've seen from Guild Wars 2 is pretty much a constant rollercoaster ride, but maybe every now and then I want to hop on the roundabout instead. Now I know it has dungeons and some sort of singleplayer storyline, but events are quite obviously the focus from everything I've seen.

Still, by far my most anticipated MMO since Age of Conan. Which doesn't bode well as AoC failed spectacularly :). It actually throws away everything I consider MMO and does it completely different. That alone makes me extremely excited. Can't wait to give it a whirl, haven't had a chance to check it out on the CONs out there.

Life is a game, just without a reset button

1/01/12 6:17:36 AM#19

Hmmmm love watching these video's so many things they say in them I laugh at......

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-SHoG8-qQc&feature=autoplay&list=SL&lf=sh_e_top&playnext=1

 

1. The pvp....hmmm seen it oh you can rez anyone cool you can do that in other games as well nothing really new in this. Hell some games you can even self rez and not have to take away from the fighting...

2. The community, So far I have seen a ton of flaming fan boys who are attacking all other games and creating havoc on every forum. This does not endear the community as being anything to be taken as a value, However I hope that once the game is released they will calm down some.

3. The look. Its rather bland to be honest, reminds me of alot of other games alread out or coming out soon.

4. No fixed classes, DDO, Rift, etc its been done before and while it works to some extent there is much to be said about purity over hybrid. Pure classes tend to be way more effective in a job role then a hybrid, but since there is no " trinity arch types" in this game this would be considered a moot point, however Many people enjoy the trinity system and this should never be looked down apon.

5.Dynamic events, If the game is anything like the first guild wars then to be honest its more of a single player game with a chat box, Sure you may need a group for the harder parts, but guess what YOU CAN ACTUALLY GET npc mercs to fill in for that...Im not really seeing that as a selling point.

6. To be more of a social experience...Huh, look if we wanted all that social experience wouldnt we go out and meet people and have a drink or go to a party. Most gamers tend to be socially akwards thus they hid in the safety of a game...Making them more social may make them want to actually want to go out and enjoy life. Isn't that conture productive?

 

 

Im still not sure on this game. While I will probably pick it up to see if it lives up to half the hype, but as it stands right now I just dont think it can nor do I think its the holy grail of mmo's like some claim it to be.

...

LOL... Took the words right out of my mouth. Well instead of wasting my time re-iterating the points I've brought up. The best solution for you PapaB34R, is to go on cali59's profile and click on any of the post he's recently made and enjoy enlightening the walls of text.

Or in-fact just read this post.
