A MMO of this quality does not come out often. To be honest WvW is so much fun I can see me going to a new MMO one day and still logging in weekly just to go WvWing. Its gona take something epic to take my focus away from this game. This is coming from someone who hated GW1. 14 years of MMOing and this is the most fun I have had.

Never liked GW and when i heard there will be GW2 have been interested like for last year snow. :-) However looking at videos of actually game play game looks completely different, more like Wow or if you prefer Rift, .... So I will for sure give it a try but I'm busy for now with another game for last half year and i do not feel any urge like before to try every new game out there.

I'm not gonna be touching GW1 and I'm even hesitant about pre-ordering before the last beta as part of me just wants to start the game completely fresh. Having said that I do need to see whether the game will perform well enough on my laptop (it should do anyway) and I should at least familiarise myself with the basics

I've been waiting for this game for 5+ yrs since I first heard about it when I was playing Guild Wars and pointing out to my guildies aspects of that game which I would like changed.  I still remember someone saying, "but there will be GW2 and it will be different to GW, so maybe you'll like that better."

 

That comment sent me googling for any info, but way back then all you could do was sign up for a newsletter.  That was it; no other info for years!  Anyway, I've pre-purchased, played all the betas and stress tests and have loved the game so far.  Really looking forward to the next beta where I hope to finally decide on which class I want for my first playthrough. 

 

Having watched all the ArenaNet promotional videos etc I have the sense that the team working on this game have integrity and enthusiasm, and they certainly seem to have responded well to feedback from betas and stress tests.  Tyria is a lush, beautiful world just calling out to me for exploration, and I'm excited about release.

 

p.s.  None of the above means I expect GW2 to be perfect, simply that I anticipate enjoying it.

The hype will overide a lot of that, but they do detract a bit from the gaming experience. As I wrote above a solid secondary mmo, but with no end-game you may not be playing for so long. 

You are misinformed. If you're going to say they went on record to say something, then complete what it was you are paraphrasing. They said there is no ~technical~ endgame, because the entire game is meant to be endgame. You don't stop doing something because you outlevel it, because it's not actually possible to out-level it. There's no point where you get to the end of the game and now all you can do is the crap that MMOs normally make you grind (dailies/raids) because the entirety of the game is infinitely replayable and challenging. The concept of "end-game" was always a stupid one to begin with, all that effort goes into creating interesting storylines and world maps just for you to outlevel and ignore them by cap. Complete waste of time on everyone's end. 

As for your prior post where you mentioned casual PvP, I'm just going to lol at that one ;x unless you're one of those types that feels anything less than FFA is casual, GW2 is anything but. GW1 was a hardcore PvP Esport for years, with championships and people winning money and clout a la LoL/DoTA, and they're aiming to do the same with their sequel.

EDIT : Calling people massive fanbois like the one above that actually replied to you very respectfully is on the flip side, extremely disrespectful, trollish, and will get you reported with the quickness. If you're going to be disrespectful purely for the sake of doing so, you should suck whatever butt-hurt you have up and sit on the sidelines until you can handle an actual conversation.

Its ok for you to call him a troll. But its not ok for him to call you a fanboi. Sad thing is this site probably agrees with you because they want to hype the game so bad.

Ok, I've just been on GW2 Wiki and found all the information I was looking for!

I am going to LOVE this game! Your play and spell styles change depending what type of weapoin one has in their main/left/off hand!  This is an entire new way of looking at a game and how to play an MMO!

Nope, no healer class. It took me awhile to figure this out!

I am buzzed as well.  I purchased a preorder and loved the beta weekend.  At first I was thinking this is really not my sort of game but once I started to understand the changes and tested out WvW PvP I was hooked.

I am normally into games like Fallen Earth or EVE but GW2 has something about it that has hooked me.  There are a ton of improvements to the usual MMO and the lack of trinity and addition of events really gives it a fresh feel.

The icing on the cake is BTP.  I can hammer this game for 3 months, take a break and then go back when I want more. I don't care about using a monthly sub up.  It means I can go back to Skyrim on the PC or Red Dead on PS3 for a change and not panic.

I have high hopes for GW2 and yes, Im buzzed.

Dakrin, for me GW2 squeezes out the most from what theme park tab-targetting MMORPGs can offer and serves in the best possible way. The combat is fun ( for once ) , the quest/grouping/chain events systems are fun as well. Top it with the nice level downgrading feature and rewarding exploration and I am happy.

 

I totally agree.  When I played the betas, one of the things that totally hooked me was the fact you end up in groups without having to be invited.  I am mainly a solo player, and found myself "grouping" more than in any other game I have played previously.  I am certain that I will be playing this game for a long time to come.

 First of all I am happy you like the game but you didn't join a group,you ran around solo doing what everyone else was doing in a zerg with little or no communication as in chat .For me its chaotic and the reason there is no point in grouping is no trinity no point to group.Everyone is dps dodge class.

After 6 years of raiding and having to spend so much time looking for x class just to do a dungeon this is the best thing about GW2.

GW2 socialist.

Personally, this is the sigh of relief a lot of us have been waiting for, but I still see that there are some people complaining about end-game or lack thereof.  Sorry, but after WoW, I'd rather play an actual honest video game than be scammed into paying every month for the low low chance of getting a pair of boots all while not risking hurting a tank's feelings.  Do you think that's not just as stupid?

No, you did that. You missed the group content such as the great dungeons.

How social is really any open world zones in a modern MMO? GW2 is more social than anything I seen since Lineage 1 at least. And even in the open world you will get a lot more out of the game if you create a group, and preferably run where the events doesn´t have 50+ players.

There are good reasons to group even in the open world but unless you did you missed them. The group dynamics are actually a lot more interesting than one would think before really trying them out.

Try group with some friends and run a dungeon, then we can discuss this again if you still feel that the group dynamics ain´t good enough.

Its really easy to tell that Guild Wars 2 is absolutely nothing like the game play of Guild Wars 1.   The only thing that connects the two is the world and the lore.

Personally I'd rather have my eye lids and finger nails removed slowly with tweezers then to play 1 hour of Guild Wars 1.  

Thank god Guild Wars 2 does not play like Guild Wars 1 or I wouldn't be interested in this game either.

 

Where I grew up as a kid, we had vast amounts of wilderness around me.  Within these woods there were streams, a river, Cliffs, abandoned mining towns, mine shafts, caves and many other things like a 200ft water fall with a serene lake on top surrounded by trees. 

I remember during summer break from school, I'd wake up early in the morning, step out onto the front porch, and take a deep breath.  My adventures for the day were about to begin.  I'd then head out with my back pack filled with possible needed adventuring tools.  Knife, lighter, hatchet, small blanket, some sandwiches and a few other little things like a pellet gun and some fishing line with some hooks.

The sense of exploration was amazing, feeling like I was the only 12 year old kid whom has ever adventured this deep into the woods.  What could I find, what could I see?  Could I run across dangerous animals?  Would I possibly find treasure? I had to find out for myself! you can bet your ass I sure as heck did.

 

Now that I'm getting older and don't have the ability to do these things in real life its been a long time since I've had that feeling of adventure, especially in a video game.

I figured after playing 95+ hours that the excitement I have for this game would lessen atleast a little but now after 2 BWE's and 2 Stress tests I'm even more excited to continue my adventure in this game.   During my 95+ hours played already I've only explored %15 of Tyria.  I had spent a lot of time just exploring realizing this game has givin me that feeling I use to have when I was a kid.  Finally a game that provides true Adventure and Exploration!!  It is truly amazing how this game is so immersive and vast that it can give someone those similar experiences and feelings.

 

I can't wait for August 25th and I'm having a hard time finding something to do to buy my time until then. 

 

here is something to consider for those mentally blocked and stuck on the thinking of "End Game" and stuff.

If by level 38 with 4 zones 100% explored I had only explored %15 of the entire game that means I'd reach max level around %35-%40 of the world explored leaving %60+ available for "end game content"  but I guess if you can't open your mind and get past what the previous games have brainwashed you into believing is needed for a game then I guess you wont see the possibility that lay within this game.  

Guild Wars 2 does have Raid content, It does have Gear that you will want to work hard to obtain.  You just have to realize how they are providing it and what it is for.  They provide the raid content for nearly everyone to experience not just a small percentage of players.  The gear isn't to help you become uber powerful but to become uber cool looking and make a statement that you accomplished something to obtain that gear.  If you don't have that look from that armor set then you have not completed that content....

 

I do realize any explination will not accomplish anything with those sticking their fingers in their ears, smashing their eyes shut and blowing raspberries in denial but oh well have fun pppbbbbttttttttttt  XP~~
