I had little expectations for GW2 despite all the hype that is surrounding the game but I did decide to prepurchase the game since I did believe that for its price I would certainly get enough content especially since there is no subscription involved and I could enjoy this content at my own pace. 


After playing MMOs for the best part of a decade and giving up on them for the last couple of years focusing instead on FPS games and more particularly Battlefield, the Beta weekend left me dumbfounded and seriously looking forward to the next beta event and eventually the release of the game. The first few hours were a nightmare as it was impossible to even get past the login server but after they finally fixed the issue I did get enough time to mostly play PVE and a few battlegrounds. 


ArenaNet sure did take the risky way, decided to steer clear of the crowd trying to copy WoW and beat it at its own game and in my opininion is about to be rewarded handsomely and set new standards for all future titles. I can certainly see myself playing GW2 for the next few years, there is so much content and out of a relative simple concept ArenaNet has build such a complex game that will certainly take years to master in all its facets rewarding you all the time. 


Hype be damned, I had alot of fun this weekend and I am looking forward to the next beta weekend which I am planning on spending on WvW. This game is certainly a winner in my book and it seems hard to grasp that all this content is available for the price of a standard game with no subscription fee.

Guild Wars 2 is so good that i feel no need to argue with the haters.

I have all the confidence that it will be succesful.

And i havnt said this about an MMO since vanilla WoW so im not some sort of band wagon jumping optimist.

Playing: PO, EVE
Waiting for: WoD
Favourite MMOs: VG, EVE, FE and DDO
Any person who expresses rage and loathing for an MMO is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.

So far GW2 lived up to what Anet has said.

So far GW2 has not lived up to the atrocious fanboy hype as seen on forums everywhere, and it never will.

My advise to all:All that matters is if your expectations are met, do not listen others if you like the game.

imho the pve is fun but where this game shines is the WvW that shit is great. i could have spent the whole weekend there and been fine. i talked my brother in law into getting this cause we use to play daoc togeather (all about RvR). so we both were hoping that we could have 1/10 of the fun we had in daoc but we both were really suprized when we had a blast in WvW. We didnt have to roam around forever trying to find ppl to fight we just went out hooked up with ppl or ran into other teams. and you know what it was FUN. i have been playing mmo's since EQ and have played alot of them most of them are grind fest to get to max lvl to have fun. if i can make it that far most games i didn't because it was no longer fun. felt like a job i dont want that shit i wanna sit back and relax and kill ppl. why cause that is fun to me. but this game has sold me just from the WvW point. it was funny i think i only saw 1 person pass up a fallen player everyone else goes out of their way to help ppl. it's kinda nice to see ppl not being complete pieces of shit in games ppl working togeather. i know for some ppl this game wont be there cup of tea but from what i have played sofar im sold you bet your ass you will see me playing.

Boy, this thread got ugly and personal in a hurry, didn't it?

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

It was fair. I think it needs another 6 months or so in the oven... the chat system was freaking awful, the guild cap is only 100, there were several non-sensical UI things. The art was beautiful. Lag during events was pretty bad but we expect that sort of things from beta events in lowbie zones. The use-until-you-unlock ability thing was cool for about 30 minutes or so and then got old. In PvE, Elementalists in particular seemed way too frail. Other classes seemed almost overpowered.

The negatives have been spun and spun and spun to death on these boards.

What's so bad about an article that is positive?

Why the hate?

Is it really THAT hard to believe that the writers on this site, real, human people, really were this blown away by their time in the game?

I know I was.

Is it now time for you to tell us how wrong we are and we are just blind fanbois following the hype train and you know better and we should all be playing EvE online while waiting for Archeage?

Sorry if I am being rude or what not I am just becoming so sick and tired of all the negativity on these boards. I'm rather quickly becoming polarized instead of trying to remain neutral, I'm sure I'll fit in better being a true hater/troll/fanboi lol

I've probably been lurking for way, way too long.

No it's not perfect. I'm not playing right now!

I haven't seen this level of open world cooperation in any game.. ever.

Even back in the "glory days" of UO in my eyes, people were still competing in Trammel for tagging mobs and getting the loot.

You should NEVER watch another player die in PvE so that you can get what they were after. GW2 understands this, and built an entire game around it.

This, along with the rest, why I feel GW2 is the first truly "unique" MMO since perhaps as early as 2004.

DCUO was one game where there wasn't any KSing... while not everyone killing everything in the area would give you credit,  if you hit something and they did too,  you would both get credit, and in that aspect I think there was a lot of unspoken cooperation.


CoH in the early days had things like this too, and probably still does, where big events would happen and people would just jump in, regardless of the rewards....


And who could forget games with other group events or dynamic events like WAR (in the PQs),  Tabula Rasa ( with their capture system), CO (had PQs also) and I'm sure plenty of others.


The only issue with this is that,  I see more cooperation,  less coordination.  What was the one, and pretty much ONLY thing I heard between players in GW2:    "Need a rez"  "REZ THE DEAD!"  "wtf guys, you HAVE TO REZ PEOPLE!"


I think if people spent some time focusing on what they were doing, instead of doing what they wanted and hoping others would pick up the slack when they die, we wouldn't hear that kind of frustration.... especially when they could port and come back in half the time it takes someone to get clear enough for a rez in many situations.

This game was sooo good. It just took me until about level 15 to realize it.
