Now leveling to 80 too fast is considered "Bashing GW2?"

To some PL'ing to 80 is so they can hallow boast how great they think they are.
Some players actually have a compulsive disorder and can't stop playing.
Others are so they can get top gear for farming karma points in W v W.
Its very typical to see some people play 24/7 to get max level.

I been having lots of fun with everything in the game, except the 'Overflow' game part. I don't like that part of the game.
Seems no matter what you do you get XP and its nice.
I'm only at lvl 25 cause I been playing my ALT's and enjoying them as well.
I will get to 80 when I stop smelling the roses along the way.

The world we know is going away http://www.graystatemovie.com/
Look up Agenda 21 as well.

You just can't satisfy everyone... thats just life... the haters gonna hate, we all hear this but its really the only truth out there... If they didn't hate something they wouldn't bash it, Disliking it, not enjoying it, falls into that category if you complain about anything you don't like.

 

theres gonna always be a piece of shit, that has his own opinion to try make others fall down to there level because there all alone down there at the bottom of the pile.

i logged about 50 hours on my guardian, enjoying DE's, personal story, spvp, tpvp and WvW. im only level 22 >.<  im enjoying every square foot of this beautiful world. 

 

I play often and I'm disabled (so no work life) but i am not rushing through anything. I agree, why would people want to reach level 80 immediately it does you no good. It doesn't help you get end game gear any faster, it doesn't make you that much more powerful when running dungeons, the dungeon in the game are all lower levels althruout the game, the pvp matches you to 80 so there is no notable contest but skill.smh

what exactly is the appeal?? especially in a game that downlevels you to the zone you are in so you don't go one shotting everything?

I'm level 39 right now with about 47 hours of play time. I'm just enjoying myself, but I know quite a few people who want to hit 80 just to get the leveling portion out of the way so they can go and explore and do wvw afterwards. Also some people are taking time to craft, and that levels you extremely fast whether you want to level or not.

people can play a game how they want and should be able to but then complain it's not fun because you aren't playing it how it was designed to be played seems silly to me. They incorporated numerous ways to level in this game but their big focus for PVE and you can see this by reading dev blogs or listening to their Q & A's is the world they created, the ability to just go out and explore, to watch events unfold in ever changing zones. If you are going to rush past and ignore this aspect they put the most work into then complain about the game what do you expect?

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

God they nerve of some people, like they have the right to pay the way they want. The OP's way is the only way and God save us from the god forsaken trollish newb haters that don't play like God... urr oops I mean the OP

 Um excuse me but Ibelieve you are mistaken, oh oops sorry thats right you know how we are to play and how Arenanet intented us to play please forgive us less then omniscent Idiots.  However I do believe I read in several place though where arenanets main Focus was PVP NOT Pve and in fact their aim was to turn GW2 WvWvW into a esport. Of course I'm sure thats all wrong and you know best please continue to tell us how it "was designed to be played" as we are not all knowing like you.

 

   Silly me I though GW2 as to be played for fun, not for the right or wrong way to play it.

I'm confused, I thought the game was designed, so that after you hit eighty,  you could go back to any zone an still have fun. I must have read that wrong.

It's their $60. They can level how they want. I never understood it though. Its like buying a dvd movie and fast forwarding to the end and saying, "This movie wasn't much to do about anything."

50 hours? Highly doubt that. Literally completing two zones, which should, at most, take you 20 hours (giving you very large amounts of extra time here).

 

It's not that people are rushing toward 80, it's that they're actually seeing this content you say they're not seeing. This game isn't a grind fest. Levels are not an indicator of progress as a player or as a character, so stop trying to make that the case. Literally following the carrot on a stick that this game does for you w/ the hearts will get you to level 22 in less than half the time it seemed to take you. Doing other things, all of which provide XP to your character, adds up.

 

I honestly find it hard to believe that it has taken you that long to hit 22 unless you're documenting everything you do and having conversations with yourself about what just happened, how much you loved it, and how much nobody else could have possibly seen the same thing as you because they're all rushing to 80 and missing out.

 

On my Guardian character for instance I've done almost everything possible up to the point of being 25. I've completed almost everything in every starter zone, done a 15-25 zone, WV3'd for 10-12 hours, all within 25'ish hours on the character.

 

Because I've leveled quicker than you, does that mean I saw less than you? Nope. Does it mean I appreciate it more or less than you? Nope.

 

It just means you're slower at what you do. It doesn't mean you experienced more than us. People do things at different rates. Stop being discriminant.

so if I play a game like splinter cell and try to play it like gears of war and am upset it doesn't play how I want it to i should get upset? they are both third person shooters I should be able to play how I want.... they are made with differn't design philosophies and playstyles..  same thing with combat if i stand toe to toe I will get destroyed in this game because it was how it was designed.. should I complain about that as well?

Whos doing the complaining in this thread? Think your being a bit pre-emptive to where this thread may be heading....The op stated that he thinks people rushing to 80 are in some way 'doing it wrong'.

To which my response is, Play how you like. Unless there is some ToS violation.


In regards to your quotes, Ive never played either of those games so i cannot comment.

But unless I am reading things wrong, the game was designed so that after you hit eighty you could go back to lower zones and still enjoy the content.  You could never "Out level" a zone.

The OP is saying racing to 80 is not playing it was it was disigned to play. How is racing to 80, not playing it as it as designed? Because now ALL the content from 1-80 available to you. That is how it was designed.

Where have the Dev's said, "You must level slow or you will miss out on content?" That is how we desiged it. 

I am looking forward to playing this game when the initial rush is over, but posts like this give me mixed signals about the game because . 1) If I race to 80 I miss out on content 2) but previous posts have stated you can do all the content in a relevant way after hitting cap. This is a confusing contradiction. Which is it?

 Link please?

 Just because some of us are leveling faster doesn't mean we are bashing the game. Its a good game. Its weird how some players get things all twisted and figure because some people are leveling faster then them they must be power leveling to bash the game. Look I don't tell you how to play the game. I don't stop playing so I can come here and whine how some people are spemding to much time jumping  around to get to some spot, or simply standing around dancing or showing off new cosmetic look x20

 So yes some of us have more time to play, and yes some of us like actually doing stuff in game rather then showing off, (looks) Goofing off (dancing like a madman/women) or checking to see if I can really reach that ledge and spending hours jumping around. Different strokes for different folks really. The games fine, its some of the weird conformist, "you must play my way" game fans that are silly. Guess every comunity has them.

  So I'm higher lvl then you deal with it, get over the fact arenanet isn't forcing me to stay at your level and go play the game and have fun.

 edit: sorry Vlhad this was not all aimed at you just as much to the op and a few other posters here that seem to know how the game is supposed to be played and imply those of us having fun and leveling faster then them are wrong because we don't play the same way they do.
