OP  8/30/12 2:10:20 PM#1

Please ignore my previous thread on GW2...im man enough to admit i got it wrong so facepalm and headbutt me.

This is the game i have been waiting for to fill that mental 'borg assimilation' scar left by 7 yrs of WOW.

Been looking for a decent polished MMO since i finally left WOW a year ago.

Tried Warhammer, Age of conan, Rift, LOTRO, Tera and even SWTOR...all fell well short of what i was looking for.

Dare i say this is better fun than vanilla WOW all those years ago..well hell yeah.

My Elementalist is a blast to play..the combat flows and has fantastic spell visuals.

The world is full of life with James Cameron 'avatar' style graphics.

The interface is simple, easy to use and navigate which is how it should be.

I stopped logging into SWTOR, Tera and Rift after 2 days play on each thinking 'I cant be bothered.'

GW2 has given me that old hunger i had all those years ago to log in, play and bloody well enjoy.

Its a new dawn for me anyway and a long ruddy time coming!

Let go of my ears, I know what I'm doing!

Glad to see you're starting to put it together.

The first few hours I played, I wasn't totally blown away, either.  It felt solid enough, but I had little knowledge of how weapon skills worked, very little about slotted abilities, NOTHING about crafting and inventory...

If you just grab some standard class, keep the weapon they've got, and start off just digging for quests and trying to level up by standing in front of mobs and spamming ready abilities, (in other words, do what you're supposed to do in about every other MMO) you'll miss so much. 

Dunno how much you've discovered so far, but I'm 30+ hours right now, and STILL learning new things. 

Good luck out in the field!

It's really not hard to be better than WoW. It's just GW2 is just the second AAA game  to try not being a WoW clone since 2004. They copied DAoC instead, and added in a splash of WAR's public quests, then improved on them.

Not trolling, but curious. I've played most of the major AAA MMOs that have come out since WoW. Which other one wasn't a clone to some degree?

I'm biased towards sci-fi/horror but TSW actually feels absolutely nothing like WOW/Rift/Tortarded.

It's not really "AAA" though but pretty enjoyable.

(Not got to try GW2 yet)

 WvW is definitely er....highly influenced by DAoC.  The rest of the game...not so much.

What makes GW2 great is that, much like WoW, they sought to improve on all the great things that people loved in previous MMORPGs instead of trying to reinvent the wheel.

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

Same thing here, i am a big fan of Anet, but for my first few hour i was felling a little let's down. Kind of hard to break old habit and enjoy the game for real.

Woot? ok..moving on

How to quickly redeem yourself and get accepted in any gaming community and also collect cool points along the way?

Make sure to bash WOW. Most imortantly don't forget to mention number of years you spent in that MMO. Feel regret to gain sympathy and then announce how you are looking forward to play GW2 for similar number of years or more.

This trick never fails. Any gaming community will accept you with open arms and you will move from one borg assimilation (in your own words) to another.

Bravo!!..exit stage..curtains.... claps.

I think it's ok to play both WoW and GW2, though it may be illegal in California, Rhode Island and Sweden.

 It's okay...really :).

Even if GW2 becomes the dominant MMORPG, WoW will remain around for years to come i'm sure and there will be plenty more content for it.  In fact, it would be a GOOD thing for everyone if GW2 seriously challenges WoW because it will push Blizzard to make more and better content.

So no need for this constant animosity against anyone who dares say something positive about GW2.

Dont use strawman please. One can post positive things about GW2 without burning other MMOS at stake. I do that all the time and at the same time i am also critical but this 'bashing wow everytime to get accepted in new game community' is such a cliche.

On the flip side, I hope GW2 doesn't totally destroy WoW either.  Competition will only make gw2 better in the long run as well.

OK so this ends up being the second time I've blocked the angry rager  then unblocked them the next day because they educated their opinion. Is this going to happen lots with GW2?

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

So harsh, I kinda like it lol.

 

That was the first thing that crossed my mind. Then I decided I didn't care one way or the other. If he THINKS he found a great game or if he ACTUALLY found one then great for him.

 

I was honestly hoping for a more indepth message to former WOW player though.

Been looking for a decent polished MMO since i finally left WOW a year ago.

Tried Warhammer, Age of conan, Rift, LOTRO, Tera and even SWTOR...all fell well short of what i was looking for.

Dare i say this is better fun than vanilla WOW all those years ago..well hell yeah.

My Elementalist is a blast to play..the combat flows and has fantastic spell visuals.

The world is full of life with James Cameron 'avatar' style graphics.

The interface is simple, easy to use and navigate which is how it should be.

I stopped logging into SWTOR, Tera and Rift after 2 days play on each thinking 'I cant be bothered.'

GW2 has given me that old hunger i had all those years ago to log in, play and bloody well enjoy.

Its a new dawn for me anyway and a long ruddy time coming!

 

 

 

Woot? ok..moving on

How to quickly redeem yourself and get accepted in any gaming community and also collect cool points along the way?

Make sure to bash WOW. Most imortantly don't forget to mention number of years you spent in that MMO. Feel regret to gain sympathy and then announce how you are looking forward to play GW2 for similar number of years or more.

This trick never fails. Any gaming community will accept you with open arms and you will move from one borg assimilation (in your own words) to another.

Bravo!!..exit stage..curtains.... claps.

 It's okay...really :).

Even if GW2 becomes the dominant MMORPG, WoW will remain around for years to come i'm sure and there will be plenty more content for it.  In fact, it would be a GOOD thing for everyone if GW2 seriously challenges WoW because it will push Blizzard to make more and better content.

So no need for this constant animosity against anyone who dares say something positive about GW2.

Dont use strawman please. One can post positive things about GW2 without burning other MMOS at stake. I do that all the time and at the same time i am also critical but this 'bashing wow everytime to get accepted in new game community' is such a cliche.

 The OP bashed WoW?  Really?  He actually said that he played WoW for SEVEN YEARS, and GW2 is the only game that so far that he has actually liked more than WoW.

I'm not sure how that is bashing WoW.  In fact, the OP complemented WoW by saying that it kept his attention for seven years, that's no mean feat for a game.  Major turn the sensitivity gauge down on your bash-o-meter :)?

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

Good for you OP. As an ex WoW player ( I played WoW for 6 uninterrupted years), I"ll just say to you that I played GW2, and in my opinion, it's a very generic, shallow, and mediocre game at best, and if I had to pick beteen WoW and GW2, I'd go back to WoW in a heartbeat.
