To be honest, completely dissapointed, Feels very reppetitve and disjointed, after playing TSW movement and combat feels very slow and sluggish.

Graphically the game feels exceptionally dated.

"World Events" just feel like a complete Zerg Here fest and doesnt really feel like you part of the community theres so little interaction that it feels almost like your simply playing with A.i.

Huge improvement over GW1 however it still feels like a Single player game, with an mmo shell, there no sense or need for grouping, Only mmo ever to get grouping right so far is ffxi.


Gave it a try, Will not be pre - ordering shame as the hype was so high.



Your post is immensly interesting. Worst combat than TSW, dated gfx, single player game AND the only mmo to get grouping right is ffxi....

I Didnt say the combat was worse, i stated movement and combat felt slow and sluggish in comparison which it does, FFXI had a forced grouping model which IMO built an incredible community, hense the "MM" in MMO is for, most new MMo's do not push the "MM" aspect for most content, The graphics are incredibly dated for the current MMO competition Tera, TSW and even Archage as examples, This isnt essential but dx9 in todays day and age!? come on!!

I found it exceeded some expectations and fell short elsewhere so I would say it overall met mine :)

I like how some people say it isn't massively multiplayer while others complain there is too many people (zergy)..

DX10/11 didn't had that much on the IQ side that couldn't be done in DX9, generally minor IQ gains at a huge performance cost - tessellation being a major disapointment so far.

It might not be the most technologic advanced engine, but it is really pretty. I love all the water. It feels very artistic and colorfull.


And got love how plant life moves with blasts and your movement.

No, the graphics aren't dated at all - just not going for ultra realist look.

Me nor my guild have any intentions of playing GW2, or any themepark based MMO for that matter.

I know it was basically just an more holistic pov agreement.

Exceeded my expectations.

GW2 is the MMO i´ve been waiting for... changes so many mechanics just the way i like it!

removing all tedious clichés and giving life to an inmersive and fun world.

Kudos to Arenanet for such an awesome  game !

Thus far, I'd have to say that it's met my rather high expectations perfectly.  So I chose the middle option.  I mean, Anet has been more than transparent concerning what this game is.  I was able to accurately assess whether or not I would like this game before playing it; and actually playing only confirmed my pre-assessment.  

I suppose I could have said it exceeded my expectations because I did encounter small details that surprised or amazed me continuously throughout my beta experience.  But overall, I find I've enjoyed GW2 exactly as much as I suspected I would.  


Also, I'd point out that a fundamental flaw in this poll is that it doesn't account for what each poster's expection was before playing the game.  The middle option for instance could indicate that GW2 met a player's low expectation or high expectation.  As such, each option doesn't really represent the poll participants' positive or negative attitudes toward the game.

 It's not a rating, it's basically just based on how well GW2 fared based on how well you expected it to be before playing.

Knowing some of your posts from before, I would say that GW2 would have had to been pretty darn terrible to be worse than your expectations ;).

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

I'd say it fell short of my expectations, but not by much. Looks like a good game to enjoy along side PS2.

Before trying the game, I was looking forward to buying it. I am glad I got in the last beta, so I do not have to buy it. Just didn't feel something like I wanted to play. Nothing more specific than that, but after two days of playing I longer felt like loggin on. So skipped last day of beta and uninstalled.

Although I had very high expectations, way higher than I usually have for a game I look forward to, it somehow managed to exceed those.

It my expectations.


I would like to see more features in the game that are not currently there, nor that will be there at launch.  However, given that the game is not subscription based I can easily get over the game and come back anytime that I want.  I am not to thrilled with the graphics, but after the SWTOR fiasco, I am happy that the game play is very solid.   It was everything that I expected it to be, but having said that I did have high expectations.

Fell short.

Wasn't expecting much and its not that its bad. It just the features of it don't seem to add up that well.

I spend most of the BWE's in World PVP which I both love and hate (not that great at low level and with the character wipe before last BWE I haven't ecperienced it as High Level). Zerg fest IMO.

The story is....meh. I don't like how its presented though the stories aren't that bad and you do have effect on the outcome but it doesn't feel like you have any. Play the story content here and there to sample but just didn't care for it.

The Dynamic Events...Well its a better form of grinding but thats about it. Better than other games (not as deep content wise but more accessable and more varied).

The Match PvP ... standard I guess, didn't care for it before and don't now.

Crafting, nicer than most but haven't had the chance to really explore it. Not much reward for the work IMO but nice for those that like crafting. (ie. ability to experiment with a decent UI to handle it & variety of outcomes/craftables)

Clan/Guild system, didn't experience it (was in 1 guild briefly 2nd to last BWE and did absolutely nothing with it - horrible guild) so no comment on that.

Classes and Races were unique and had character but were also rounded but progression seemed shallow. Not really surprised by this as thats not necessarily bad or new for Guild Wars. (never advanced to high levels so couldn't experience the Trait system all that much - I'm guessing thats were most the custom progression will occur)

Mainly, the various elements just didn't seem mesh with each other all that well IMO and can't really explain why? Basically I never felt like I had any purpose or place in the game, I was just doing stuff randomly.

I'm generally kind of cynical by nature. As such I was a bit skeptical of GW2 for a while. I was looking forward to it, but kind of apprehensively waiting to see how much of it (to what degree) they managed to pull it off.

That said, I was not expecting them to have anywhere near the amount, density, and quality of events that I found in the game. It definitely exceeded my expectations. WvW was a very nice surprise as well.

Only reason the game didn't greatly exceed my expectations, was because it has a few areas that fell a bit short of what I would've liked. Mainly, some of the dialogue is a bit 'too corny' for my tastes. I can live with it, but there is some voice overs in the game that literally make me cringe when I hear them. Oh well. =/

This was a tough question to answer for me. While i felt that the game mechanics and systems all worked well, the loading screens just killed it for me. Everytime i turned around to do something, i was in a loading screen. There was many times i ran around without any real purpose and that was just, ok. Nothing really felt engaging and once again, there's no systems in place for community interdependency. I also felt that the traveling system, being able to zone in and out of different areas even though i could have chose not to, really took away from getting the true feel for the virtual world. Not having atleast a taxi type system that allowed to be able to go from point a to b and veiw the game world, i think is a mistake and makes the game feel to closed in and sharded. The game for what it is, is really well made. The problem i have is, it really feels like a mix between TOR and WAR and that's not a good thing. While there's many people all around you, it feels like all that, is nothing more than a big zerg fest and lacks any real purpose. For it even being a BTP game with no sub, i still can't justify a purchase.

felt short aswell..


what i like in this game:


is the pve content..



what i do not like is:


is the combat system.. and the classes.


i am actually playing a game only for the pvp.. but i found gw2 more enjoyable in the pve then pvp..

what i predict for myself is that i will prolly play the game throught the pve content and then store the game on my bookshelf.


I have no feel with teamcombat in gw2 also finding the so callled WvWvW too much visually mindfcked.. can't see what is going and then your dead. turn down is also about the class system with basicly everyone can do the same thing.. dps/heal/support/tank this is simple not gonna work for me..
