Oh my.  I think both games are getting away from the close your eyes and smash random buttons style of the past (solo PvE at least).  So I don't think you saying GW2 is going to be sooo much different is going to help your case.  Other than GW2 having the nice auto attack, I think both are quite alike.

 

It sounds more like you were upset that your favorite build ended up being bad/ineffective in the end zones and you got emotional about it.

 

If you think playing to get AP is pointless wait until you play for cosmetic rewards only in that other game.... 

No, I'm sorry.  YOu are assuming I haven't played the game yet or something?  I've played every BWE and have been blown away and sucked in because everytime I log off, I want to log back in.  The game has a sense of discovery that I enjoy that TSW does NOT have.  Combat is similar, and I like it, I just don't like TSW's tedious slow combat as opposed to GW2s very fast and sometimes chaotic on your toes multi mob fights.  I also like having my defined way of playing stay that way, as opposed to TSW making my defined way of playing mean squat just because they want to add challenge to their game to keep people paying/playing and it's ONLY deep in that respect.  The rest of the game is shallow and lacking any sense of discovery or sense of wonder and the horriblly over done endgame that we've seen in almost every themepark MMO since WoW does not help.  Plus, TSW world just feels so tiny.  I was able to see the whole world in 2 weeks?  That's horrible.

hmmm interesting... I've never had issues with long fights in any areas and never had to completely remake another build.  Have you looked at your passives and your gear?  I was running QL 10 purple pvp gear  and my build main is Hammer/chaos  my passive took from all other trees to build overlapping damage, with dots, affliction, hinder, hinder procs etc,  the hardest mobs in the final areas would drop pretty quickly.  How much of your wheel did you have unlocked and your SP?  
But in anycase I played the way I wanted and never really had to change a whole lot, TSW offers a lot of customizability, you just have to explore.

I don't believe you,OR you just haven't gotten far enough into the game.  I started with a blade/elemental build and went for the ninja deck and was all about Penetration abilities.  Coming across certain mobs in Egypt that were immune to Penetration and required a magic build means I had to change my deck completely and have that magic stuff unlocked.  I did it and I just didn't enjoy it as much as others apparently do.  

I also tried to roll some alts and was bored to death on my first few missions in Kingsmouth, I just didn't want to play an alt. To me, that's horrible for an MMO to engender.  Some may disagree and are one character players, that's fine.  I'm not and a great Alt game is one of my defining points to a great MMO.

Agree. Just logged out an hour ago, went to the TSW webpage and removed the credit card information. I got more and more frustrated about the bugs. You know, over and over you are stuck in a quest where you can't click an item or it won't activate because I'm in the wrong instance. Towards the end I got those "Oh! Another one, so forget this quest also" moments.

What really caused me to finally quit: Like mentioned, it got too hard. Maybe TSW is more for people who have the time to group but I'm more of the solo player that likes the company and chats of others now and then. - So today in Transilvania, it got to hard so I decided to head to London to get me a better sword. Then I ran into this "Oh! Another one, so forget this Marketplace also" moment.

A bit more than 2 weeks till "Sleeping Dogs". Then GW2.

I will miss the cinematics though. The atmosphere is awesome but the bugs... arrrghhhh

All of history is a lie. The truth depends on who does the listening, and who does the telling...

I can second Elocke on this. I was also palying dragon and going with the ninja deck. The combat is slow and the mobs he mentioned were a PITA. I didn't have  alot of points sunk into other builds by the time I ran into this scenario and let me tell you that going back to grind for AP was one of the determening factors that put a halt on my gameplay before the initial 30 days. I knew that the ninja build was a good damage dealing layout and that it took time to build up the pen/affliction for dots, but the fights were long and tediouse and not fun.  Instead of being upset I did start to sink points in different areas and go away from the deck, but the fights started taking longer than they should have. the game wasn't hard at all really, I was rarely in danger of dying from mobs unless I pulled multiple mobs. But I can attest to what others have said, sometimes the fights took long enough in a clusterfuck area that respawns were happening on top of me. 

RIP Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan and Paul Gray.

don't care what you believe. you can go to my chronicle Laross on the TSW site look it up and you'll see my gear is purples and I've already been through every area, completed everything I needed to do before the game got boring since it was fairly easy once you figured out what to do.   When I finished btw I had 29million pax, all gear was QL10 purple and I had 3 purple signets.   After you get QL 10 and the signets you want there isn't much more to do.  I was also top 15 in PVP at the time.

In the end all I did was farm the elite mobs in the final zones for signets and rare drops, and speed was the key to make it profitable and worth it.

I liked MMOs better when gamers didn't play them, and just geeks did.

I find the difficulty VERY refreshing.

 

You can't truly have the highs, without having true lows. If you always win, how is that fun?

 

Still, there are plenty of faceroll MMOs out there...hell, most of them are. I'm really happy I with TSW. I'm in City of the Sun God and the game just keeps getting better. I worked hard building and tweaking the hell out of my custom Shotgun/Blood build, and it's very rewarding to see it execute well.

Just out of curiosity, if you had to guess, how many hours of playtime did it take for you to essentially beat the game?

"Loading screens" are not "instances".
Your personal efforts to troll any game will not, in fact, impact the success or failure of said game.

I've had some time off for awhile so I went fairly fast in terms of doing quests.  I didnt' waste time on investigation ones too much, or any bugged ones, the key was I saved my tokens and bought them at the later zones to get the better gear that would get me through faster,  the further you get the easier it is to get AP, but PVP I did do a lot of since you have to grind that stuff to death.   Fusang for 1 week straight 14 hours a day to get all purple gear minus my weapon which i felt didn't need to be upgraded.  but overall a lot of time, if I had to guess a real time in played time it would be around 15 days total actual time.

You are not an "average" MMO player if you played 14 hours a day for 7 days straight, lol

And you "didn't waste time on investigation quests too much" ? That's almost like playing GW2 and not wasting time on DE's too much...

 

Your whole post echoes with "I rushed through the game". I'm not surprised that you quit, TSW is clearly not aimed at players like you. If you play any modern MMO in the same way as you tackled TSW, you will "finish" them all in the first month easily.

Still, there are plenty of faceroll MMOs out there...hell, most of them are. I'm really happy I with TSW. I'm in City of the Sun God and the game just keeps getting better. I worked hard building and tweaking the hell out of my custom Shotgun/Blood build, and it's very rewarding to see it execute well.

I dont mind some difficulty in any Mmo and I played Everquest 1 for quite a few years and that game could be difficult at times but it was never Frustratingly difficult like the Secret World is at the moment , having to play Kingsmouth over and over just to get the gear you need for the next Zone is also quite tedious.

Dont get me wrong I like most elements of the game a whole lot but Frustration with solo play and getting aggro every few minutes is not " refreshing " as you put it, to me.

I will come back to it at some point though especially if the adjust the mob spawns ;)

I was excited about the TSW until I found it's all about story and video clips....Will never play it !

THIS IS THE REVERSE OF AN MMO ( bottom line, you can dress it up, feed it, but at the end of the day, it makes it not an mmo )

 

Hard would be good if it's an mmo  ( you know multi- player- online ).

 

 

Geeeee.........Such crap thats coming out as of late is ridiculous !...........Thank GOD...........Guild Wars 2 finally got it right  to put things back on track of making an mmo.  In GW2 I'll already have a good working Guild and a long list of reliable friends to group with when things get hard.  All because it's an mmo !!..............And when I feel like soloing and enjoying a story, I'll play Skyrim.

In the end all I did was farm the elite mobs in the final zones for signets and rare drops, and speed was the key to make it profitable and worth it.

I don't get your negativity SpottyGekko, he obviously had a great time with TSW playing it for over 360 hours. That's amazing value for money. That he got a bit burnt out of the game and doesn't want to subscribe (assumed by me) is something not really unexpected. ;)

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

There were a few harder 'nightmare' mobs up in Transylvania but otherwise it wasn't too bad and a lot of fun.  But once I got to the end...got bored of going backwards (and PvP never intrested me in TSW).

I'll pop back in to the see the new content, probably but right now GW2 is so hooked in my mind I really have no other goals (gaming goals...I still live RL mostly ;P)

i have mixed feelings about TSW. the quests are sometimes fun but most of the time its tedious and boring to fight your way to the quest items thru tons of mobs, that spawn just in time to give you the same experience on your way back out.

of course its rewarding when you finish a hard quest. but most of the time its the kind of "thank god its over" feeling of release for me.

could be my deck (AR/blood) where i can fight/heal thru nearly all content solo (hardly ever get below 80% health), but the combat with this is very boring (button mashing at its best 121314121314...) - and each fight lasts long. i just started a new build with pistol/fist with the hope to get a somewhat more dynamic combat.

i had way more fun in GW2 because i found the quests/events itself were fun to participate and i enjoyed the combat much more (...and i died way more in GW2 than in TSW).

in the end its a question of personal taste i guess.

AR/Blood are both healing weapons, so the slow combat where you don't die is basically the result of that. It would probably suit the people in this thread that are complaining about the game being too difficult. ;)

I see your problem right here.....  no reason to ever play a MMO that much, I can't imagine what title will ever keep you entertained.  Were you an old Lineage 2 player, that would have been right up your alley.

Glad to see TSW has retained it's mature community one month after launch.
