Perhaps tomorrow will be better.

I feel sorry for you OP,this i have seen in EVERY game since i left FFXI and even that game was starting to get bad as well.Just like it bothers the OP,it bothers me as well.

Want to know the funny part,before i left FFXI ,i never thought community was that important.Once i got outside that game,i was sure wrong,it then became pretty much my number one priority.I pretty much consider it like your work force,you definitely would not want to work alongside asses,well it is much the same in gaming as well.

You sir however hit it on the nail,it is the lack of forced grouping that does it in games.

You see in solo games players can do whatever when they feel like it ,so they often stop to make a nuissance in chat.In Forced grouping games,they have to keep up  playing with the group.If they start chatting while the group is on,they get the boot.

The sad part of all of this is not a Guild Wars 2 problem it is the entire genre,we do not have a single forced grouping game anymore,even FFXI has gone south to raid sizes or solo.I guess EQ2 still has a need for grouping unless getting high level help.Same typical chat can arise in EQ2 though again being an older game,the elitists ruin it.

Sanctum of Rall is amazing for community.

 

My advice find out where the big elitist douchbag PvP guilds are rolling and dont go there.

Been hearing good things about that server myself, since the origins of said server have drawn a friendly crowd. I am on the EU server Gunnar's Hold and it has been surprisingly civil over here. People help each other out, either by reviving, roaming together or either answering a simply question without the typical "L2P NOOB". I guess the OP just rolled on the wrong server with the wrong crowd (probably the 4-chan server).

To be honest I'll take the community in game over the trolls on this forums.  So much animosity.  To hear MMORPG.com tell it, GW2 is the second coming of Anarch Online.  FFS it jsut started give the game time to grown through its birth pains.  NO MMO RELEASED HAS BEEN PERFECT.  For those that were close like Rift, its because they only had about 100k popujlation at release.  GW2 has 1.2 million prepurchasers trying to play at the same time.

Yeah. The in-game community is a heck of a lot more civil and less trolly than this forum's community.

I got so much trouble on my mind Refuse to lose.

8/26/12 1:37:30 AM#28

When Rift was launched ,map (public) chat was so horrible that trolling would be to call a elephant a mouse. The chat was full of nazi,racist,hateful comments , I never seen something like that before.

Than TERA was launched and the chat was full of openly pedofiliac people, boasting about rape.

That is horrible.

 

But that is internet, and that is what is killing mainstream MMOs.

Its not GW2.

 

And aside from that I think it depends on the server. On Gandara , I seen nothing like that.

I honestly haven't experienced any of this. I've been on overflow servers as well, but I actually had people congratulating each other on WvW victories, doing trade and excitedly talking about the game. Was a little bitching during day 1 but people were fairly respectful about it.

Didn't see much QQing or trolling going around. If you're on Tarnished Coast you should be aware that it was specifically targeted by 4chan for trolling.

Don't let it put you down , please.

Like all over the world, there is alway an idiot up to no good, but can you imagine the happiness you would give that idiot if he knew how you feel about it?

The guy might be so stupid that he would go rampaging about how he's able to tear down people to nothing with stupidity.

I always try to remember what Einstein (Albert) said :"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity "

So pls don't conver to it, just ignore/ change server / just let it be for what it is : nothing.

This is not a typical 'plop five dollars down to play during headstart'.  These are people who paid 60 dollars to play the game a few days early.  If they are acting like this, god knows how it's going to be at release, and how bad it will get as some people tire of the game.

 

I'm really dissapointed.  As much as I should expect it, I suddenly feel sick to my stomach with it.  Why pay money to log into a game and be an ahole to others?   I don't get it.  Why aren't people cooperating, calling out asking for groups, helping others, etc?

 

Is there nothing at low levels that requires cooperation and grouping? 

 

Does it have something to do with constantly being in an overflow server?

 

Maybe it's just the late night crowd...

We tried to warn you.  F2P (or in this case B2P, whatever the hell they want to call it)  =  shit community.  Thats just the way it is.  People who can afford $15 a month for an mmo (almost always) have jobs, which means they're generally reasonably responsible people.  People who can't are usually slackers, degenerates or super young.  Either way they're not people you want to associate with in game.

Could you be any more cynical and ignorant?

Best community I have ever, and I will say it again, EVER, been in with an mmorpg. I am an old player too! 

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

Agreed. So many people working together and answering other people's questions in chat.

Hi

8/26/12 7:59:53 PM#38

Huh. MMORPG's are full of these people? I think you'll find it's just humanity in general.

 

Start a cult, become a spiritual leader or an award winning author. Fix society yourself and these problems won't happen, if you're not willing to do anything just accept that you live in a cesspool.

I want an mmorpg where pvp matters, my enemies are not my race or class, and community matters.

Sadly, the RP server days of Dark Age of Camelot are long gone.  Those were golden times, when intelligent folks knew that RP just meant to not speak about modern topics and to do one's best to see their mmorpg world from their character's eyes (Sorry emo RP folks from WOW's Moonguard who RP love stories while the Horde tears up Goldshire, that's just not it).

 

GW2, like many so called mmo video games, is just that, a video game.  You aren't going to draw the old RP communities from EQ, Asheron's Call, Ultima and DAoC (It would be nice though), because the game doesn't do anything to draw on that population because they are a niche group. 

 

The games are built to service the majority today - whereas ten years ago, it was meant to service the Dungeons and Dragons pen and paper crowd.  Call us/them a nerdy bunch, but man could we build a community in an mmorpg.

 

C'est la vie.  Just enjoy Guild Wars 2 like a beer - not in excess and don't take it too seriously.  Just have fun with what they have to offer and bide your time until Elder Scrolls Online is released (it must be good because the F2p and younger gamer crowd are hating it).

Its going to be insteresting to say the least...seeing as theres no paywall to keep out players who had purchased the game and would otherwise move on.

 

All the mega-hype games have the same community imo...and its all aweful.

 

Not so bad if you can find the mature community hidden and then close off all communications with public chats...but im a firm believer that you shouldnt have to do that.
