The truth hurts sometimes, we know.

 

That's the major mischaracterization I see regarding "grind" and GW2 fan opinions of it. We don't say there's no grind. We say there's no mandatory grind. In WoW, for example (and my only relevant comparison), you raid to "progress", period. If you want to keep up you need to. In GW2 there's nothing required for you to do to stay "competitive" at max level.

Oderint, dum metuant.

ahahaha agree 100%  :)

Funny thing is the "actual" end game is the same as this list in all mmorpgs. Grind for gear. Grind for titles. Grind for rankings.

And by all you mean most themepark MMORPGs.

Yeah, cause there is NEVER any grinding in Sandbox MMOs....

Now Playing: Destiny, WoW

Both good games imho. Right now I'm just playing the B2P one though. :)

Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

So according to the "experts" this is the list of different and fun things you are supposed to be able to do at lv 80.

I love how the 90% of it is :

 

-Grind for Gear

-Grind for achievements

-Grind for collect random crap

-Spam dungeons like crazy

 

But hey, it´s GW2, that automatically makes it  non-grind and fun apparently, even though any other game would be burned to death if they presented such a list as "endgame content"

I like the game, i have bought gems two times already to support it, and i will keep getting the expansions and whatever they throw at us because i enjoy the game, but it came to a moment where anything gw2 does is automatically holy and fun for no other reason that it´s gw2

And this is why i hate this game´s fanbois much more than i do hate the haters, despite the fact i do enjoy the game myself.

This is getting ridiculous.

 

 

Damn you beat me to it.  I was jsut getting ready to post this here.

 

Sad that the haters and detracters will still find fault no matter how much proof is shown them though.  Simply put, GW2 has tons of content and the legendary farming will take someone who doesnt powerlevel like me plenty of time to even begin let alone finish.

The truth hurts sometimes, we know.

 

That's the major mischaracterization I see regarding "grind" and GW2 fan opinions of it. We don't say there's no grind. We say there's no mandatory grind. In WoW, for example (and my only relevant comparison), you raid to "progress", period. If you want to keep up you need to. In GW2 there's nothing required for you to do to stay "competitive" at max level.

There is nothing to be competitive about in raiding unless you choose to make it feel competitive. I raided in WoW for years and couldn't care less if another guild killed a boss before us. We still had our instanced version. Never understood this make belief competition I hear bantered around so much.

The only time I felt any type of competition in raiding was when I played EQ and all the raids were open world and the bosses were on a timer. And if you wanted to get the loot you had to rally the guild, get to the boss and kill it first. If you wiped tough luck, the next guild is there and waiting for their crack. If it was a NA guild and EU guild, then all types of buggery happened.

There is no unified entity known as "the GW2 fans" who have a singular, uniform stance on grinding or, in fact, even the same definition of "grind."  A number of 15+ page threads on this very forum can illustrate this.  This is the single most common fallacy made on these forums: 

Person A makes claim X. 

Person B makes claim Y.

Both persons A and B are fans of the same game (GW2 in this example). 

GW2 fans are saying both X and Y, which is hypocrtical/contradictory!  Caught you!

 

In reality, various "GW2 fans" have held various positions on the matter, again, which is easily demonstrable by viewing past threads where GW2 fans debated each other about how the end game "grind" would feel (because that's what grind is, a feeling of repetitiveness.)  Something that feels grindy to one person may not to another.  Indeed, many of the items listed on this list won't feel grindy at all to many players.  And that's part of the beauty of GW2: you play the parts of the game you want, earn the same level rewards, and you're never forced to do anything you don't want to over and over again, aka grind.

The competitiveness was in being geared enough to move your guild to the next raid tier. There was definitely a degree of competition in gearing my tank against the others tanks in the guild (in addition to simply being good at it). Two comparable tanks, the main tank job would go to the one with the best gear since they've have the greatest survivability. In a situation where if the tank dies you fail, that extra point or two on those damnable meters mattered.

 

Sigh... I don't miss that. Sorrows Embrace yesterday, I asked the guild. Four others wanted to go, so we partied up, we went and we did it. No gear score checks, no "assignments", no waiting for a healer to log on or trying to get someone to change to their healer... we grabbed five and went.

Oderint, dum metuant.

I stopped at the second sentence because in the guilds I have been in we made sure everyone was geared for the roles they wanted to perform so we all could progress as a guild. If your guild promotes individuals competing for gear vs everyone working together then I would find a guild with a different guild structure. The latter will breed resentment and cause fighting over loot. If everyone shares in gearing up each other it breeds teamwork and unity.

Well this thread has gone on long enough with out a definition war I'll try and start one. 

If you define grind as a repetative task then yes there are repeative tasks in GW2 and in fact most MMOs. I'll even claim in most video games in general, hell in life there are repeative task. The "daily grind" was around long before video games (around the time Roman Empire fell) .

But I can claim, for me, no real grind in GW2 if I define grind as someting that I have to do but don't want to remain competative or open up other content in the game. So, I have to perform this job to do other things in the game to have fun. Some of you don't get that feeling from raids, you love them, and good on you but that is my feeling in a raid oriented game. I must raid (grind) to open up other things to do to have fun. Not everyone feels this way of course but GW2 was certainly designed for someone like me - so good for me :)

They were a good guild, they just didn't completely hold your hand and bottle feed you to full raid gear. But, that's in the past anyhow... quit WoW right before Cataclysm. Just couldn't do the grind thing anymore. Not that kind of grind at least... the second job type. It wasn't fun anymore, just necessary to maximize my "play".

I love how the 90% of it is :

 

-Grind for Gear

-Grind for achievements

-Grind for collect random crap

-Spam dungeons like crazy

 

 

 

Welcome to the MMORPG genre.

"It's the GW2 fans" implies all fans and you know it.  When someone says "WoW fans" or "Red Sox fans" or "Tolkien fans" there is not an implied "some" before each of them.  It's basic language we all use and isn't subject to misinterpretation.  They are universally statements of generalization.  Don't try to pretend otherwise now.

Like in UO, you know what I was doing before I was 7X GM?

The same stuff I was doing after I was 7X GM.

It is "different" than most other themepark MMOs in that sense, but not unique to GW2 and actually quite common in the sandbox sub-genre.

Again I think this list was put together to combat the "nothing to do at 80" crowd, not put together to tout how "revolutionary and different GW2 end-game is" because it's really not - it's just different then a lot of themepark MMOs.

Macroing before 7X GM

Not macroing after 7X GM

GW2= Nothing like UO in any sense of the meaning.

Some of us actually didn't macro in UO. Some of us actually played and enjoyed the game.

And post Trammel/Felucca split UO pre-LBR is more similar in design philosophy and "feel" to GW2 than GW2 is similar to any EQ/WoW/Post-Wow themepark.

But that's off topic.

The list is dumb - but I believe was just made to show the obvious logical flaws in the "there is nothing to do at 80" comments we keep seeing.

No, there is no raiding and gear treadmill, but there is plenty to do at 80.

Ya'll need to lighten up!

Well yeah I see the point, but it doesn't help much to those who got bored during the climb to level cap.

I see it kind of like how it ends up for people in those damned endgame raid MMOs that reach cap but don't like raiding.

DUDE 1: "WOOT! Made it to level cap! What now guys!?"

RAID DUDES: "You can join us and RAID!!!"

DUDE 1: "Oh . . . I don't like raiding."

RAID DUDES: "Well you can FUCK OFF then!"

DUDE1: "sigh"

 

 

I'm going to come clean here and say that beacsue this^ has been my experience (as Dude1), I do actually prefer the horizontal, go-back-and-do-what-you-missed movement of GW2. Which is to say "I hate endgame (raiding especially)".

 

 

EXACTLY.

I honestly don't understand the issue. If you don't like the game, stop playing. It was designed in a particular way, and the entire game seems to me to be built to a consistent philosophy. (Do what you want - we won't stop you.) I love it and will play it a long time. If you don't, find a game you like and play that.

ahahaha agree 100%  :)

Funny thing is the "actual" end game is the same as this list in all mmorpgs. Grind for gear. Grind for titles. Grind for rankings.

And by all you mean most themepark MMORPGs.

Yeah, cause there is NEVER any grinding in Sandbox MMOs....

Well, to be fair, sandbox MMORPG's are different- instead of playing for some amount of time before grinding, you get to start grinding as soon as you get in the game.
