Lets be honest, GW2 is the most fun I have had playing an mmo in the last 6-7 years and I have played almost all of them.

As for the op....as someone who is skeptical of GW2 if for no other reasons the people on here who treat it like it will have no flaws even I'm having a hard time seeing how you make the connection between what ANet is doing and what Blizzard did.

The only people who treat it like it has no flaws are people that hate the game. Guild wars 2 is a great game within the scope of what it is trying to accomplished. Not everything is perfect but the negatives are in no ways gamebreaking or significant enough to care. Guild wars 2 is just like every good 60 dollar game in the world, it is not perfect but it is better than MOST MMORPG in the market right now for me at least.

Guild wars 2 doesn't appeal to everyone but that is not the same as it being a bad or inperfect game.

note: it is impossible for humans to create anything perfect.

Same.  Anyone who has played GW2 or knows even the tiniest bit about it knows it's nothing like WoW.  OP is fail post other than showing he knows nothing of GW2 and is excited for The Repopulation, which is understandable at least.  What's the matter OP, can't shout out the love of one game without insulting another?  Typical of MMORPG.com posts, for sure.

I have read some about how people are looking forward to Planetside 2, but I would never start a discussion topic about it because I know to little about it.  OP, I feel you have done the same thing with this discussion about GW2. Not knocking you, but do a little more looking into what the game is before labeling it. I hope you do buy it and find out how different it is. :)

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

Is this a post on GW2 or an advertisment for "The Repopulation"? I like sandboxes and I have to say "The Repopulation" looks horrible. It's another Darkfall/MO waiting to happen.

Always the case with an unreleased game that were excited about, thats the issue here i think.

Go back and check out the beta-prelaunch threads for games like WAR/AOC/AION/RIFT/SWTOR...no one cares how totally awesome and game-changing warhammers beta and launch were..since the midgame and endgame are now known and a dud.

Just an example.

 

Ill hop in GW2 once the game is known...has way too much hype for my likings...way too much.   Since gear and levels dont matter so much i wont be too far behinds if ijump in a month later anyway.

  • Progression
  • Goals
  • Questing
  • etc
Not sure what else you're looking for in the MMO genre.  Almost all MMOs are clones of each other when you break them down to the basic elements.  There is of course the Sandbox, but other than that, almost all of mmos are still the same.

While I think I get what you are trying to say by saying the only people who treat it like it has no flaws I can't be certain since it certainly could have made more since with a better explanation or simply stated a different way.

What I speak about though is the GW2 fans who spent the better part of the last year fueling a SWTOR vs GW2 flame war by constantly posting on the site of other games to denounce them while equally shilling for the game they like and to be honest most people who I read from on here who hate the game have nothing good to say about it (which is why I think your statement could have been better presented).

What happened to mmorpg's being about the journey and not how fast you can hit cap and then waste your time raiding for gear ,GW2 does  it right, it has questing, solo play, alot of group play,crafting  and de's,and  after  this you go to the WvW and help your realm take castles over and such, to add to this they also have  skill points that provides some real further advancement of your char thru pvp. I am curious as to what went wrong with mmo's.

Dispite saying all this I'll  buy GW2 myself, just because I'll never have to worry about a sub fee again, I can come and go as I please when I please, which in my eyes, is a nice touch.

When the OP created a thread to complain about a game which he's never played and then said he plans on buying it, he lost all credibility to me.

I've played in all the BWE's and can't remember a game that was more fun since DAoC.

I know who I am, what I want and how I want to play it. That's all I need to know and don't need some fool to try to convince me it's anything but good.

I personally don't expect much out of GW2 just like the other mmo's that have come out and tried to be the next wow/big mmo. The problem is in the fact that mmo's these days are just way to soloable, they have become bascally single player games with a irc chat room, till you hit cap.

What happened to mmorpg's being about the journey and not how fast you can hit cap and then waste your time raiding for gear that in most of these themeparks has no more use anymore. Dark age of camelot did it right, it had questing, solo play, alot of group play, and raiding, after you raided for your gear, you'd don said gear and go to the frontier and help your realm take castles over and such, to add to this they also have realm skill points that provides some real further advancement of your char thru pvp. I am curious as to what went wrong with mmo's. Anyway, yeah I'd not expect much out of gw2 if your smart, because like all the themeparks before it, people will be bored before the first week or 2 of release is up, it always happens, even to casuals.

*snip*

you obviously have not played the game and don't seem to really know anything about it.. its funny because your second paragraph starts with "What happened to mmorpg's being about the journey and not how fast you can hit cap and then waste your time."

Ironically this is exactly what GW2 is all about

And you turned this into a four paragraph post about how you like The Repopulation. Welcome to the City of Trolls, your thread is now 4 pages deep.

OK, judging by the opinions in your OP, the fact that you are looking forward to the repopulation, and seem to have fond memories of SWG, you are more of a sandbox / OWPVP fan at a guess. 

If thats the case, guild wars 2 isnt for you..... by design

The repopulation just looks like an earthrise clone to me, let's be honest/realistic here these indies are in capable of delivering a working game let alone an engaging sandbox.......see what I did there?

No. they're not. But in many cases they are collecting paychecks for doing so. The Internet is now like politics - a small portion of the marketing and advertising is saying how good your side is, and the rest is tearing apart the competition.

I would have said exactly this if you hadn't already.

 

@OP - personal preference does not indicated hightened quality.  I think that your quest for a "decent MMO" is flawed, and you should instead be searching for an MMO that you enjoy playing.

I used to TL;DR, but then I took a bullet point to the footnote.
