What does hype have to do with the quality of the game? The OP is complete nonsense.

 

Because people say game is good -> I'm not buying it for 6 months

 

What kind of brain follows that logic?

SWTOR is the greatest mmo ever!

Hate to break it to you but you can't beta without pre PURCHASE = no cancel of purchase because its not a pre order and if you pre order you don't get into beta.

 

and yes there is a difference between pre purchase and pre order.

Actually you can. Pre-purchasing only guarantees you access to the public beta events. You can still gain access to the beta events even without pre-purchasing, it just isn't guaranteed.

Are you trying to tell me that pre order gives you access to beta?  from my understanding the only way you gain beta access with any type of game purchase, pre order or pre purchase, is from pre purchase.   I've read in many different places that you do not gain anything concerning the beta from pre order.  

 

Pre purchase = guaranteed access to beta

Pre order = nothing concerning beta??

Hmm, yea i just double checked....you only get beta access if you pre PURCHASE, not pre order. That sucks. It now means no beta for me. There is just no way in hell i'd buy an MMO i havent tried any more. Too many games are hyped up and look good on paper or vids, but turn out disappointing. Warhammer Online, SWTOR, AoC all come to mind. I'll wait till reviews come in and i see how the people playing are liking it.

Strikes me funny tho. Here on the GW2 forum this will just be considered good business...If Funcom was doing it, they'd be called money grubbing criminals.

You are somewhat mistaken. The beta access is GUARANTEED if you pre purchase, but you can get beta keys elsewhere. The people who signed up for beta all have a chance at getting into any given beta weekend. ArenaNet was handing out cards with three beta keys each at PAX East. There will most likely be future giveaways as the beta weekend approaches.

No offence, but you dont seriously think you will get into beta at this point without a pre purchase?  Yea, pre purchase the game so you are guaranteed beta access, then subsequently get a beta key emailed to you from a signup...lol, i'd be pissed

I have high hopes for Guild Wars 2 but will not be playing until the unrealistic hype is crushed and the game is brought back down to earth.

 OP it's far more simple, just stop having high hopes. Cause honostly it's almost always the people with these high hopes that often fall for hype.

3-6 months? I hope not. I'll be waiting until I can try it first (preferably the full live version). No matter how cost effective B2P is over P2P it's all a waste if you wind up hating the gameplay.

I will probably just get it because it's b2p with no sub.

another pointless threads so sad kid now days play game before others like it or not  ,if you really want to know how good the game is  play it yourself and stop reading  the hype of diferent people ho some like it and others not ,no game is perfect  it may be your cup of tea  it may taste like crap to other the best  WAY to judge a game is if you play it yourself  and see what your opinion about it , if i would let miself  get by hype or critics review about games  i will basically be never have the chance to play any game at all cause all game have bad critics as they have good one .

@OP: Just admit that you want to jump on the "I-told-you-so-train". There has been TOR bashing before its release and everybody who did this is now a super duper hero. At least in terms of their understanding. Now people try to jump on GW2's I told you so train because it has been successfull for those "few" that predicted TOR's failure. The only logical misinterpretation is that hype means failure and I hardly believe GW2 will fail. I am kind of a fanboy myself but if you honestly look at it and compare it to WOW then you will get this:

  • Combat is more dynamic

  • Questing is more flexible

  • Story is more immersive

  • Grouping is more social

  • Game looks as polished

  • etc,...

Well you could actually argue that there are already other games that do 1 or 2 aspects I mentioned or did not mention better, but afterall GW2 is having it all and thus more arguments that support it. What I currently hate about new MMO releases is that every developer has like this one unique idea and tells you how cool it is. And then if you ask about the rest of it they have the very same generic shit everyone else has. GW2 breaks away with this because they seem to pay attention about everything. One thing I noticed early on is that if they were asked a tricky question or about a feature that has not been announced by then they were (almost) always giving answers that I could understand and respect.

"Der Weg ist das Ziel." - "The way is the goal."
Thank you ArenaNet and Bioware. Finally MMOG-Devs start to understand Konfuzius. Thx alot.

How many "pay to win" posts are you going to post about the game?  I would rather you not play it to be honest because your incessant whinning is starting to annoy me.  Plus it is blantanly obvious you have no intention of playing the game in the first place but instead whine about everything under the sun trying to turn people against the game.

 

GW2 is not P2W, Anet is not some Cut Rate 3rd world development studio and any ammounts at portraying ANet as publishing a P2W game reeks of trolldom.  GW2 is arguably the most anticipated MMO since WoW and the hype it receives is do to known facts, a caring company and a legit CSR focus on community.  I truely dont understand why someone needs to continue to downplay what is the most innovative MMO to come along in years.

yeah, this is what I thought as well.

ahh well, let 'em wait. A big part of the beauty of GW2 is that ANet have removed the usual barriers to play for late comers that you normally see in themepark MMOs.

It hurts neither Anet, the game, or me as a player that some want to wait.

 I do strongly disagree with you , simply because i think i find that it really makes sense to be worried about what hype does. This thread makes sense , and in contrast to alot of the other bashing threads we have had recently here. The MMO history is filled with hyped launches that just have been more or less so disappointing 3 month after. Whether GW2 do fit there or not is a totally other story. (and i for sure think that GW2 is so promising that it doesn't take alot of work studying what ArenaNet is up to, to realise that here is something special going on). But the point is with the past launches in mind, it makes sense to try to avoid jumping  the hype. And the way is to get an informed oppinion or wait. And it also makes sense for fans of GW2 to just come with the good arguments for what makes this a special game worth waiting for. Because there is plenty.  

 

 

 

read how to create a succesfull mmo before posting about GW2. And read tao of ArenaNet before talking about innovation in GW2

I am sure you do actually understand why the OP was made ;)

GW2 is scary to a lot of companies with 'creative marketing' departments out there right now. I wouldn't take anything you read in any forum or user opinion box too seriously from now 'till launch. :)

This ^

I was going to actually respond to the OP, but then I realized it's basically a troll post in disguise. While I do agree that no one should buy something based on hype alone, this looks like yet another P2W / GW2 smear thread. If it's not a troll, then by all means wait 3-6months OP.

Personally, I know enough about the game to know that it's fun, and I'm going to enjoy it. That's all that really matters to me. While I don't agree with all of the details on the game, I'm not the one creating it. They've seemed to have done a phenominal job with the game thus far, and I actually like their design manifesto (something I can't say for most other companies), so that is a huge selling point for me.

I enjoyed the game when I played it, I like most of the changes / updates they've made to it since. I like this company and what they're trying to accomplish, so I will support them @ launch. Not saying everyone should, but that's my personal stance on this game, and no amount of hype(positive or negative) can really change that. Only facts will.

GW2 is a b2p so there's no commitment issues, it's basically the same if you bought it at release or wait 3-6 months cos you won't have to pay any sub fees for it.

Nice try OP but no internet cookies for you

Nope, no point in waiting.  I've bought games for 60 bucks that turned out to be a few weeks' entertainment at best.  There is absolutely no reason I'm not pre-purchasing on the 10th.  Besides, it'll be a load off my mind... a lot of people have waited a long time to give ANet their money.

^This

Hell I've bought single player / co-op games for $60 that only took 2 days at most to beat, so what's $60 for a game that should take at least 3 weeks to get to max level at full grind mode I'm sure.

I always wait. I no longer preorder games. I want to know all details about a game and I want to know what normal players and people I know and trust think about it. If everything appears to be fine I will buy it.

Of course waiting 3-6 months is a bit to much. Normally one month would be enough.
