Been playing for 2 days and got 1 disconection. It's not bad, for a newly launched mmo. The word dissaster should be used when a disaster happens, you know like game client failing to launch, pachting not working and servers down for days, I'd call something like this a disaster, sure they had that login problem on pre release but they fixed it in just some hours.

You causin' trouble? /narroweye

Broker hasnt been up- was up for a few minutes yesterday but now down again and not been up- mail system is not up and hasnt been up since they took it off (only let 15% of ht eplayers who no doubt are thier firends and collegues) have access to mail- its down till they roll out new authenticating methods- as to when that is could take weeks as they dont tell us anything!

apart from the lack of info and down trading post /mail the game is fine- I am enjoying it- just wish they would fix the mail system FAST as need new bags and my proffesion doesnt make bags - jewelcrafter/chef!

 

 

you can start new crafting professions without loosing your progress on that ones.

They are posting in at least 3 places - Reddit, Facebook, and Twitter. They are also more than likely posting on one or 2 of the regular GW2 fan forums. Remember in GW1, they did not have there own forum, they used the fan forums to announce things.

 

http://www.guildwars2guru.com/  and several others.

Why i disaster... It had it flaws like any other launch, but not a disaster at all.

Im level 58 with a couple disconnections since day one, the only thing bothering me, and still not much, is the trading system.

For myself I have foudn the launch acceptable and  apart from the forums and trading post being down(nowhere near the frist game to laucnh without either but amybe the first to have them implemented but nto available.) but from all  the people having problems I would say the launch overall is less than average.Nowhere near a disaster but not up to where it should have been.

I am having a blast in GW2 so far but that doesn't mean I think the launch was good.

A "disaster", Really ? This is the word you picked to describe the current situation with GW2 ? Wow...

I smell a tr... Nevermind...

How did you describe D3 launch then ?

This launch seems to get worse with every passing day and Arenanet's ability to cope seems in question. Is this launch starting to spin out of control and become a disaster?

The other thing that seems very troubling, is having to go to third parties to find out what is going on.

- Absurd difficulty

- forced to be downlevelled makes "getting stronger and coming back later" impossible

- getting your group together in the same instance most times doesn't work

 

So yes, I'd say this launch looks more and more like a BIG disaster. And no forums bugs me the most, that I am forced to go to FACEBOOK of all things or follow some tiny twitter news. Absurd.

A forum is a place where people can discuss about different opinions. So what I don't get is, how people react offended when they come to a forum and then find... well different opinions. If a different opinion offends you, what are you even doing here?

If the trade post stays down much longer, then i will say it will be one of the worst launches for a MMO. after all trade is the bread and butter of MMO economy.

Why they didnt have player to player trade i do not know.

Disaster ?

You realy think GW2 launch days where a total disaster :) ?

Apart from millions of players logging in at once where you just have to trial and error to push trough all those connections i dint have any preblems...
Only 28 august i had a few lag spikes, but thats all -_-


Yip its the worste launch ever in the history of mmo's.....cant by any worse then this.


I have been trolled i think :( ?

You have to be joking. You're going to start griping about this again? Wasn't this a big complaint of yours with TSW too?

I don't get why some of you bother playing mmos anymore.

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

 Does he honestly think game is absurdly difficult?

It's an increase in terms of difficulty for sure....but absurd?  He must really really suck at gaming... that or Elikal is secretly my dad... my dad can't play any video game period...

The fact that it's posted on Reddit - is actually bad support.

 

Or how about at least a front page link to redddit. They posted photos of them eating cupcakes, why not a simple link?

 

It all comes down to damage control, posting that list of problems on your website will definitey kill sales in the short term and you don't bite the hand that feeds you, well if you know what I mean.

 I think it is more simply mmo burnout to be honest. Seems with every game he ends up coming up with reasons why it is awful. I honestly think he would be better off simply taking a break.

You are listing 2 design choices and only one that is a launch issue. The group issues have been bugging us too.

But as for going back and feel stronger. This definately works. Your lvl might scale down, but it is very noticable that your weapons and gear are better. If you are highest lvl in an event, you will notice that the boss mainly goes for you. Especially if you equipped dps traits.

Absurd difficulty is maybe only in certain boss situations. The elemental boss in Asura starting area for example. While I think it is fun, I also see a lot of complaints about it.

I do believe that melee players in events with mass amount of mobs will find it almost impossible to play well. Lucky for you any prof can equip ranged AOE weapon. I noticed that this is the most efficient (unfortunately) against mass amount of mobs, if you are going for max loot and participation. The AOE spam zergfest is ridiculous at those events.

EDIT: You guys should be happy that there is an overflow server. If there wasn't you wouldn't be able to play at all. And, while not being able to party is an annoyance, its not game breaking like it would be in other games given the fact that in GW2 everyone gets loot for particpating in world events. The only thing that you can't do if you aren't in a party are group instances. 

I also agree it's far from a disaster and I've largely enjoyed my time playing.  This one point though is pretty huge for me and will start to become a huge issue for me if it's not addressed fairly soon.  I don't mind being in an overlow server, just make sure I can be there with my friends so we can keep playing together.  I bought this game primarily to play with my wife and another good friend and it's getting very annoying to not be able to consistently group up.  It's not game breaking for me yet, but with each passing day it gets worse.

 its down till they roll out new authenticating methods- as to when that is could take weeks as they dont tell us anything!  
What they posted yesterday about it

We're currently preparing email authentication and intend to deploy it in a phased rollout, starting on Thursday, August 30.

 

They also posted today an update on the mail system that they're keeping it down due to an abuse instead of re-enabling it last night which they posted at first.

cba to post the links since apprently you cba to look for the info they're providing (hint: twitter, facebook, reddit, gw2guru;   you don't have to monitor them all, if they post an update somewhere they link them all on twitter so you could just follow that and use an ingame overlay like the Enjin client that has built in social media, browser, voice chat, video recording etc. so you don't even have to alt-tab out of the game).

My advice is to just ignore Elikal he is in another thread complaining that modern day MMO's are too difficult. also that Devs cater to the hardcore crowd because of some dick measureing contest. i dont get it, i find it that the more challenging it is the more fun it is.

Because i can.
I'm Hopeful For Every Game, Until the Fan Boys Attack My Games. Then the Knives Come Out.
Logic every gamers worst enemy.
