The negative posts are REALLY starting to stack up.  They have succeeded in scaring me off from this game... which makes me feel SO guilty.  I wish I could be more brave but, it looks like a lot of people are starting to think they were duped.

I was advised to give it a month or two before buying and see how people still felt about it then... but... it seems they are turning faster then my advisor thought.

oh my...

The pve is a grind that get boring quick. The WvW and Spvp are really good, and  worth the price of the box.  If I could not level in WvW, I wouldn't make it past level 30.

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

Do you have an "advisor" for every game you buy?  And you do realize that almost all of the people that have criticized the game in the past week are people that were already doing it before launch, right?  Ask your advisor to think that one out for you.  The MMORPG.com forums are hardly indicative of a real problem, nor real success, no matter how you slice it or who's doing the slicing.

If you love PvP buy the game. If you are the "I don't pvp" type, then you probably should be wary.

OP  9/02/12 8:24:02 AM#66

Lol at some of the fanboy replies. I logged in today with some mates. My first dynamic event was another epic escorting a mule to another town. Seriously we were bored to death after a minute lol. And more of the darn centaurs. The second one I found in a cave spawning bandits every millisecond. Go kill a leader on top of a rock. You could even pick up a big bomb. Seriously made for 2 year olds but I suppose if you like this stuff then who am I to argue.

and finally the cherry on the cake was killing some harpies near a dam. I tried my personal story but to my horror found I had to escort another mule with centaurs attacking. 

If the masses can be pleased this easy I think I'll make myself a new mmo. I'll have a trynamic event system. It will be epic and awesome.

Are you kidding me??? I stopped reading this after I got to TCTC and Calerxes on the first page. They demand the op say imo. Are you joking? Every word that is posted here is imo. Besides, if one person likes a game and another doesn’t, who gives a crap? Ever since Dark Age of Camilot all games are exactly the same. imo

It sounds like neither of you have played the game, so yes there is reason enough to be critical.  I like how everyone takes a wait and see approach on a buy to play game when they're happy to buy single player titles that can be completed in a week.  It makes no sense, but then again, neither does not thinking for yourself.

^ look around at the several "I'm sorry I was wrong posts" for GW2 then look around at the negative posts and look at their post histories, they are extremely negative on pretty much every single MMO out there(aside from their one go to one of course).. why they hang around these forums or this site at all is a mystery to me. Not everyone is going to like another high fantasy themepark but honestly I can't remember a MMO I have enjoyed this much in the past 8 years.

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

If you find this boring, then you probably never made it far in an MMO. Just about every MMO I've tried is way more boring and faceroll easy. Then again you probably are a PvP person.

I think that's the only way most people will be fully satisfied, but you don't seem to appreciate how much effort and work it takes and how poorly your own ideas might translate to an MMO, no matter how good they seem to you at the time.  I'll reserve 60 bucks for your creation though out of good faith. ;)

For a start no more escorting mules and centaurs wil be banished forever

I thought this was common knowledge.

Even WoW, indisputably the most succesful P2P game of our generation only ever had a retention rate around 30% for people playing past level 10 (http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/read/7.174642-Only-30-Percent-of-WoW-Players-Get-Past-Level-10#4922111). I think one could use the same stats for any other title, especially the newest ones.

If a game's retention rate is around 30-50% then the game was a success.

In that light, I've always said to wait around 3 months before jumping into an MMO, if in doubt. Or to wait for trials to become available.

If you want to bring up slicing then it really does cut both ways :)

Oh I know there have been plenty, I've actually been taken aback by some of the posters who are enjoying the game despite their previous attitudes, but the hardcore detractors will say fanbois obfuscate and ignore.... well what does THAT count as then?  The number of negative responses to GW2 itself has not gone up nor down in any obvious way, but each side wants to pretend it has.  What I don't get is, if you don't enjoy a game, what does it matter who is "with" you on your dislike?  Stand on your own.  I liked WoW for years despite my friends picking on me for it, I didn't succumb to their judgements.  Now we've got people advising other people not to play a damn video game instead of letting them try it for themselves.

Like the Rock Paper Shotgun reviewer (I think) said "Better to get while the getting's good".  If you wait, you'll be waiting forever.

A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?

9/02/12 8:34:06 AM#77

 

@ OP

I do agree it's no different than the other themepark titles out there and if this game had a monthly fee players would be raging.

The no sub fee is a excuse that players use to defend this title with it launch problems since early headstart.

If you like the game, you will defend it since your enjoying it, however facts are facts, if there was a monthly fee attached to this game it would be just another typical thtempark mmo in which some would tire after reaching level cap and refuse to pay the additional montly fee.

It doe's have that single player feeling, but I have grouped up plenty of times since I am playing with my coworkers, however outside of that, I havent grouped up with anyone I didn't know in the game and it does feel swtor'ish in that sense.

Actually, no they're not.  Aerowyn and I have both noticed something you apparently haven't.  It doesn't cut both ways.  In fact, it cuts more in the favor of GW2 if you're not counting log-in issues and so-called hacking.  People who didn't expect to like the game have come out and stated that it's awesome.  I don't see much of the opposite, but hey I'll keep my eyes peeled.

Sooo...the OP is ranting, because playing a MMO, implies timesink activities and Kill/Guard/Collect/Escorte quests?...

Then you shouldn't play another MMo for the rest of your life...

Be it a RPG an Adventure/Exploration game, a RTS or any genre of gaming, it always comes down to KIll/Guard/Collect/Escort missions..., and since the freakin dawn of time...

SO yeah stop playing videos games if its bother you.

The only thing a studio can do about that, is to wrap it up in a nice package, that makes you feel like its different from another game.

And here you have to work a bit with the studio and development team to make the magic work, just like when watching a movie, you know that it isn't real, but you want to, because else, the mere fact that you watch it would be useless, and you couldn enjoy any form of entertainement.

SOmetimes you have to let yourself just go and be taken with the flow the game/movie propose to you.

And GW2 do that pretty well, it was a longtime since i last played a MMo where i would completly lost track of time.

 

Oh and if you don't like Centaurs..., JUST DON'T PLAY A FREAKIN HUMAN!

Or go lvl in another zone from another race if you want to play a human that badly...

My charr always ends up against Legion flame CHarrs, i don't complaint..., they are only ennemy's that i must destroy to my path to glory and power, even if i kill billions of it, i don't see the probleme...

Like i said if you have a probleme killing 10+ times the same kind of ennemy, don't play a video game for the rest of your life...
