Have you tried leatherworking?  How was getting leather mats in the norn starting zone without using the AH?

You're kidding, right? My bank is full of leather I don't even use since I'm not leatherworker...

After 16 pages GW2 sounds like your run of the mill post WoW paper thin mmo that is catering to the instant gratification crowd.   Streamlined to be be made casual and easy. No mystery, no thought needed. Even "hidden points of intrest" are marked on the map?! Reall? Couple that with "We restricted the trait/skill system because we don't want people to be shocked and overwhelmed." ,  and you the perfect recipe for a 2 month counsole game. 

 

This is what the other side is saying... These aren't point of taste reviews these are game design reviews. 

couldn't be more off base but again ill see you in the TSW forums hyping the hell out of that one shortly

I have not   played GW2, but this is what is being said over and over by people who are not "all in" Where as in TSW, people said "I don't like the animations"  or "I don't like feel of combat (animations). These are points of taste.

 

What is being said here is about game design. Stuff like "I can't continue the story because I need to grind DEs to move on."  and " and  that "everything is handed to you on a silver plater." This is thin game design.

 

Again this is not what I'm saying, I have not played. This is what is being said in this thread.

I see well after playing both,  GW2 overall has a ton more stuff to do right out the game.. staying power we will see luckily GW2 has no sub and I can enjoy both games

That more to do "right out the game" Is being decribed as repetative DEs. Every DE sounds like kill 10 boars or collect 0 apples.  Some people arn't looking for  everything "right out the game" they want to be immersed and to learn/discover as they go.

 

again couldn't be more wrong and you are just taking words from people who never got past level 5

More like level 4, pretty sure the collect apple quest starts at level 4.  The funny thing is you can also kill spiders to get credit for that quest as well.

 

The questing in GW2 is amazing and allows total freedom.  Sure its not for everyone but i SUSPECT ITS FOR MOST EVERY ONE.

Let me say I am having a blast. I use to be Nazgol on here but got so irritated by the haters of SWTOR that I deleted that account. I hated this game with a passion. The haters were right in a lot of aspects about that game, and I was wrrong about that game as I was this one. I loving this game.   The combat is tactile. I am still a noob though so I am getting use to having to dodge (I have died numerous time due to this), but you know what it's fun. Most MMOs you pretty much can't die in the starter levels, this one keeps you on your toes.

This to say that TSW is nothing like GW2. And it has a forum on this site, I invite you to go there to talk about it.

Oh, the irony. Spoken has if doing events won't get boring a few months after launch, unless newer, shinnier ones don't come out. That goes for every dev driven quest mmo.

I like both systems, since neither is hub based. I like events for just jumping in and grouping up, but prefer TSW's missions simply because there's finally something more than killing and fetching. There's still lots of it, i know, but having a good amount of puzzles is awesome, IMO.

Honestly, i'd LOVE to have both systems in an mmo.

Poeple are complaining about it.  The norn starting zone doesn't have a lot.  IF you have gotten a lot  in the norn starting zone, tell us how you got it.  Be specific.  It's easy to say you have a lot of it.

I PLAYED the game. Yep, nothing more, nothing less.

I just checked, I have 170 leather scraps in bank (of the lowest level leather) - just from looting and salvaging.

All these posts and it all basically boils down to the same thing as Iphone vs Android vs Windows phone.  Different package and slightly different interface but they all do the same basic things, yet some will martyr themselves rather than use the competitors' product.

For me, it is simply that the game looks way too much like Free Realms.  I am the last person that would judge a game so quickly based on graphics, but for some reason I simply can't get past that...and that may be a good thing where the genre is at a point where it is so saturated with choices that someone can choose not to play due to a minor issue like that.

Is Leather a problem? Really?

Then I'll be filthy rich when the game opens, because I have a LOT of Leather. In fact, of most collectible materials.

My only real complaint about the game so far  is that Dagger Necro builds are much less effective than I thought they would be,

Ah, and Shaman's Rookery. Damn that place!

OP, have you tried each of the races?  Maybe a different origin story?

I personally felt pretty immersed when I started failing events and having cascades of events changing down the line... but certainly in the starter zones I did not feel that way.

When i got a little  bored of PvE (I tend to get bored of fighting mobs in general), I hopped into WvWvW and had a ton of fun, then went back to PvE to finish off my story quest in the area I had been in. 

Dunno, I have really been enjoying it... I hope you can figure out what is boring about it for you so that can change!

Great.  You claim it.  Tell me specifics and see if it can be repeated by someone else.  Otherwise, I might think you are full of it.

I thought I had  lots of mats till I tried to craft. Learned fast that they disapper quickly. Plus you need blues for some trades.

I didn't find the game boring but I didn't see all the innovation that people seem to post about.  I got to 30 in a previous beta and it mostly is the same MO, do quests - level.  The even system isn't innovative, we've seen that type of stuff in other MMO's.

That being said, it will be a solid MMO with a great launch and good retention.

Color me indifferent as well. The game just does little for me. Watching the people who are going ape over this game like it's going to be a completely new experience reminds me so much of "Throwing rocks at cars" scene from the Bebe's breast's episode of South Park.

Event bosses are boring as hell, they just stand there and spew things out at you. I wouldn't exactly call that exciting. Long time fan here but I'm afraid ArenaNet has dropped the ball on this one. Never thought I would see that happen. Graphics are nice but graphics alone do not make a good mmo. Perhaps I'll check out Dust 514 or Planetside 2. I think I am done with the basic fantasy mmo with a twist. These types of mmos have been done before time and time again.

Go Past lvl 15 the events become really nice then :)

People don't have patience anymore.  If it doesn't give them instant satisfaction, i'ts a failure of a game.  It's so ironic too, because these are the same people who complain about, wow-style, instant gratification, themeparks. lol.

Yea Im reading a lot of " I only played for a few hours " type posts and they dont seem to realize all they were messing around with was a tutorial of sorts.  I cant tell you the last time I really had an awe inspiring experience playing a tutorial.  Its easy to not see it, but thats probably what it really is before the game actually opens up. 

 

I played EvE for around 6 months and enjoyed it.  But if I judged it entirely on my first few hours of game play I wouldnt have lasted longer than well......a few hours of game play.   Plus a lot of people seem to alternatively having loads of fun.  In the early stages of the game which says something. 

 

Worst of all, most of these people complaining will probably buy the game and play the daylights out of it anyways.  You can get a key with some effort on the net so I hear, but most have had to pre purchase to get into beta.  I find that kind of ironic.
