This. I only have time to chat while in cities or outposts... I mean, how am I supposed to type while shooting a rifle and kiting a mob ? It's just too dynamic, especially for a slow typer like me :D

The game is still growing which is absolutely great imo. This is usually when you see players start to migrate elsewhere in other mmos. I am having a blast.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

it's nice for ANet to be rewarded for their work, and nice for NCSoft to get some extra income I guess... but I don't really care how many boxes it has sold.

I only care that I can get a group when needed and that it has robust live developmnent.

Beyond that? /shrug

I think that pretty much sums it up. I have already seen that some people feel lost w/o the trinnity, quest hubs and lack of a defined end game ( raids). This is the perfect game for my ADD personality, spent a good part of the morning just wandering around a aread I have never visited, leveling was the last thing on my mind.

Got frustratred becaus eI could not find a way into another area and in desperation went out and googled it, turns out the area is just a name on the map, most likley part of a future expansion. I have a feeling this game will be on my drive for a long time. Might try some future games like Mechwarrior , firefall etc if they strike my fancy but it is not like I have to maintain a sub for this game so all is good.

I do think we will see a big dip on the 25th when MoP releases.  I've already noticed the populations have been slightly decreasing since launch and WoW will be reclaiming a lot of its players.

Release a game with a very large established fanbase from 10+ years of bnet history when the market was still emerging and the casual base had not yet been established, thus ripe for harvesting a momentious self perpetuating playerbase people never leave because they have X hours invested in their characters, and their friends and everyone else plays anyway. Not discounting Blizzard quality... but WoW's success is as much about perfect timing as it is quality, if not more so. - Derros

There is an inherent design flaw in the public questing system, but so long as populations stay healthy it should not be an issue.  I see the game being successful and if expansions are rolled out in a strategic and timely fashion, I think there could be a steady population rise over time. 

 

To me, this game is solid.  They could add additional features and functionality with expansions and this game will only become greater over time.

depends, I have my doubts as to how long they will stay.  From my experiences in MMOs one you leave you might go back for a while but once the initial "zing" is gone, it is gone for good. I retried UO, DAoC, SWG, and LoTRO after taking a break. Never lasted more than a month or so at most. generally got tired of them after a week or as soon as I had explored the new areas whichever came first.

I really do think people are ready to move on, maybe not to GW2 but soem will and some will just game hop until Firefall, Planetside 2 or whatever sucks them in. At least GW2 you don't have to go through the hassle of resubbing  and canceling the sub if you want to try something else.

Do you think that WoW players want to play Pandas? Or do an instance to kill monkeys in a brewery? It sounds like Blizzard is scraping the bottom of the barrel. (sorry - no pun intended) It may actually turn players off. It is a possibility.

Remember Rabbids cant play MMO's, but they can dance!

While I think the game is pretty good there are ppl like myself who find the game repetitive and somewhat lacking and dont log in very much to play. I do the same with world of tanks.. i play for few minutes and log off.

***Raving Rabbid has saved Queensdale and dances with Queen Jennah!!!***

All my opinions are just that..opinions. If you like my opinions..coolness.If you dont like my opinion....I really dont care.

seriously what MMO is not repetitive? you kill mobs/run quests so you can get more hitpoints and better equipment to kill the level 3 mobs so you can kill the level 7 mobs. Pretty much descibes every MMO ever made other than Perfect World, A Tale inthe Desert and  maybe a cpuple of other sandboxes also. I like GW2 for the exploration, I am wayyy tired of the quest hub BS myself

The game sure is holding people's attention for now, but i wonder how many will go back to WoW's panda expansion.

It is because there is no general chat. In other games you see a lot more chatting since everyone in the game uses the same chat, map chat is different.

Who can what will happen in the future though? But lets worry about the future later.

Combat it much more active and intesive then old time MMO´s.  Thats why most people dont even read whats in the map chat. We´re busy playing the game and having a great time

Indeed. I find that while there are alot of people playing, it is VERY difficult to talk unless you are by a relatively docile waypoint. This is not a game where you can AFK.

B2P is a door that swings both ways. In hopes to draw in gamers to a game they can play whenever they want without a fee. It also allows the pendulum to swing the other way. People can also put it down when ever they want and return on a whim. So they can continue to maintain their sub based games without feeling like they are losing from GW2 either.

This means that WoW and GW2 and whatever other games people sub to can enjoy their populations as players share their time and go back and forth.

People always want to see these huge impacts in player-bases when new games release. Fortunately, these impacts are never quite that large.

I feel that the state of the genre is such that a total and complete failure is needed so it can be reborn anew.
I'm actually hoping this new generation of 8 button MMOs will make that happen.

 And this is unbelievable....why?

If you are playing a game that requires a lot of attention to avoid dying horribly...then you can't really look at map chat can you?  This is not unique to GW2...this is like...any game.

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

or they might wonder why they are paying 15 bucks a month for a game that has a outdated game design ( quest hubs, non scalable content, end game that consists of nothing but repeating the same old raid for disposable gear etc)

 I have my lifetime sub  to LoTRO, and SWToR is going F2P if I start missing qany of those

raiders and power gamers will question its longevity, and may play less at 80 due to a challenging and "unrewarding" endgame, or lack of pvp skills/interest, as evidenced by XFire stats. however, only a small portion of GW2's player base uses XFire (probably only those who care to show off their /played hours, i.e. power gamers), and a more accurate estimate of the pop would be server pop categories show in World Selection.

all in all, glad to see the game growing. im not even halfway through the pve content, and im already looking forward to new DE's (and current ones getting scaled properly, no sense denying it's a problem). i may be in a minority on these forums when i say that GW2 has a long life and a high user count ahead. see u in Tyria. 

And the game is less than one month old. Kept seeing these kinds of threads about SWTOR for seven months.

Now I'm not saying that GW2 is going to become a ghost town, or that it has any of the major flaws that TOR did. I am simply saying its a bit early to be crowing about this games absoloute success OR demise this early into the games life span.

I agree its too soon but then every newly released MMO needs one topic like this. I would be surprised if servers are not merged in few months. It always happens. The only exception is WOW.

In EU 9 servers have already settled on medium population.

 GW2 Going Strong

Great to hear and wish that to all game really even to those I might not like or play. And aint playing GW2...yet, but alway's is good to see a new MMO doing good.
