This.

Also i guess i got past halfway to the field medic achievement cause it's too easy and no one dies... Ever. Right?

 Edit: or whatever the rez achievement is called!

Poor guys, soon you will wake up. The blow will be enormous :(

Thanks, but I'll decide what I think and what I like. And I will be playing gw2 for a very long time. It takes me 2 hrs to know if i like a game or not, though I always stupidly insist to give it longer than that. And I don't like this game... I LOVE IT.

Yes it was. Or are you seriously shitting on the way MMO's have played for almost everyone all these years?

Yes. Not all MMO's played this way and yes it's old and overdone. 

It's not old and overdone that is just the way combat is.  It was not invented for video games by MMOs if you look at the old NES final fantasies you had warriors with guard abilities to take damage, and healers and mages that usually did the most damage.  Oh hey lets look at how fighting really happens on earth.  You send in Tanks(yes literally tanks in this case) they roll up and take damage, you have snipers and people with grenade launchers that nuke crap from range, hey you even have combat medics that don't even really fight they just patch up people that are hurt or egineers that just patch up machines that are hurt.  Hey lets go back further.  How about medievil times.  You had knights in armor that would attack point blank and keep "aggro" off the people launching arrows from range, hey you even had those guys in robes that would go around tending people's wounds.  Trinity was not created by wow or any MMO and has been part of battles for a very very long time.

Excellent point.

This games playsyle does not exist in real combat.

This game is the pruduct of "everyone wins soccer kids" and "yugi-oh fighting".

Characters are too balanced. - Yes - I said too balanced.

A mesmer can stand and take a melee beating just as long as a Warrior or guardian.. (somethings wrong here)

Vice versa a warrior can melee hit for the same damage that a caster can drop a nuke... (somethings wrong)

Why cant a tank be that and only that,, just a tank,, and why cant a caster be taught a painfull leson when he gets too close to melee range.

The most senseless post i have ever read.

Tanks deal a lot of damage.

Knights were the big damage dealer.

Tanking damage is a crappy concept in real world because generally damage kills or incapacitate you.

And healing just happens after the battle.

Currently playing: GW2
Cooperative (semi cooperative)board games you should check: Pandemic, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Eldritch Horror, Descent 2.0,Level 7 Omega Protocol, Last Night on Earth

Why not? Isn't that partly why GW2 is getting so much attention because it's actually different? I for one was tired of the retreads.

I think I have figured something out. I know somewhere in these forums someone else also figured this out, but I have to at least make my opinion known. After EQ I and WoW vanilla came out we have seen instant travel come around. You wander around the world and open these places that will allow you to instantly travel to that location that you have already visited. I think Devs made this to make the working class ( Like myself ) make it faster to get to where you last left off so that you might level faster without the hassel of running the whole way there. I think this makes the elitist gamers bored faster than if they had the option to actually run to the last destination they found, making the game take longer to level. Like in EQ1, you had to take a raft that took forever to get to its destination. Maybe Devs should give an option for long travel instead of the instant travel. I know that I made a lot of friends while wating on that raft than I have made from pressing a button to instantly travel somewhere!!! =) Just a thought for all the new MMO's that have came out recently. What are your thoughts?

How so? Your OP was just complaining that there was no trinity, which I personally like, but no specifics on how it's not hard.  Mesmer can get hit and not die? Do you know if they had an ability up? Did you know what they were specced and geared for? building a character is not as simple as plugging points into a catagory.

 

Also, I think the idea of playing games to have fun somehow got lost during the epeen stroking. I have found challenging content and had fun with it and I'm level 24-25 that has only completed one full zone.  Seriously, either enjoy it or leave it alone.  It's hilarious.

Actually it's a horrible point because it isn't realistic or historically accurate at all.

Cavalry were the shock troops of ancient and medieval times. The "tanks" were entire units of heavy infantry with spears or pikes.

What that guy stated and what you agreed with is the product of "RTS fighting" which isn't historically accurate in the slightest.

"Holy Trinity" games are completely unrealistic - what you see in GW2 is an example of "wolfpack tactics" which is very much an actual and realistic many-on-one technique for taking down foes (or dinner).

That's funny.  There's a thread saying they are unbalanced.  So which is it? ;)

You do realize that you can go into higher level areas before thirty right...

My friends and I are constantly underleveled for the areas we are in; it makes it more fun.

Lol. I had to laugh reading this. Someone obviously has seen to many movies or played too many games. This is one of the all time idiotic attempts at a justification I have ever read for the trinity. 

 

There is nothing similar To the trinity in current or ancient warfare.

It's different to what most people would be used to but not really easier so to speak.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

Awww come on thats not true at all. Everyone knows that in real battles you can send 1 guy in who stands there and yells at the enemy (aka taunting) and the entire enemy force just chases that 1 guy around and completely ignores all the people shooting at them.

You should have research the game even though they boast about no CLASS restrictions in most of their press, and interviews.
