The Critical Hit Pretzel!

9/21/12 8:29:58 PM#21

To bash on GW2 a bit (or to bring up truth) many people probably just quit playing (no monthly to make them feel the need to 'dedicate' to trying to make it worth) so that dropped numbers a bit. New games coming out helped to lower this a bit further as well which should act as more temporary measures against it. 

 

Still, there are people around just they won't be in the drones that launch had around. Many who do play are probably in WvW, PvP, or farming the high level areas. Its not THAT vast (though no mounts does help to create that illusion) but for the most part your probably not looking in the right places. If your expecting launch numbers a month after, you got some crazy expectations even if this game was all the hype brought it up to be (which its not).

Same server. the zones between 15-65 are completely empty especially on off hours. I'm playing a single player game at the moment. Hope they implement the guest feature so I can exp on a high/full server.

why not just transfer? they are still free once a day

I just looked and the servers were 9 full, 12 High, and 3 medium at about 9:00pm pst.

This was recorded a few hours ago on Sanctum of Rall NA, one of the high population servers. This is very common to see everywhere in the game. 

I'm still not getting where you are playing OP, everywhere I go are many folks playing. 

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

Sanctum of Rall has people everywhere.  Tried doing a level 50 jumping puzzle this morning before work and there was 7 people doing the same puzzle.  Bought a huge smile to my face knowing the world is alive and not eveyrone sits in the cities waiting on their next isntance/pvp queue to pop.

I'm putting my money on it being the vastness of it all, but still - it would be nice to see more than two or three players every Hour....

 

After all, this is MASSIVELY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE gaming... Ahem.

maybe its because of the time you log in in relation to the server time or something.... I can say the exact opposite here. I see tons of people when i play for some hours a day in GW2 everywhere (from lvl 1 to 65 zones which is the highest ive reached so far). Im not playing TERA anymore but i only saw many people in Tera during betas and the first few weeks after launch during my first 30 days. Enmasse is merging servers due to population decline (if they did already then that could explain your comment on TERA)

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

B2P has only been seen as a draw for the game. And it is, but it's also a revolving door. Just as easy to walk away with no guilt.

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

i have found more things to do in GW2 already that ive seen in other sub based themeparks. I guess its everyones opinions floating around here. Im glad it has no sub and already im waiting to see whos the next developer to make a crappy and inferior WoW clone again and try to add a sub. I honestly wont ever pay a sub for a new mmo unless its superior than WoW and GW2 combined. Otherwise ill stick to those 2, one free(b2p) and one rented(sub)

I barely keep up with kills in some of the scenarios, because so many people are there attacking the mobs.  It could be my server is full, and yours isn't.  Try another server because mine is full.

 

Of course, you could be trolling, just to cause a bit of mischief.

They are coming for you!

OP, try switching servers. You're EU or I'd say come over to Jade Quarry, it's always full in any zone I go to.

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

Hey! That's awesome! It's great that you were able to find a game that you can call "home". And all the stuff you can do and why you love it so much. But I was talking about why the game may be experiencing some fluctuations in on-line populations.

because 

1) my friends and guild is on that server

2) the wvw queues are bad enough on my medium server, if I transfer to a high one I will probably never WvW again.

Because all those P2P games from the last years have done so well in retention? It has nothing to do with the model if people stop playing.

Don't know which server you're playing on, but I'm constantly running into players in every zone.  EVERY ZONE!  This is from the starter zones, every capital, the end-game zones, Lion's Arch is always full.  This game is PACKED.  It counters ST:WOR, where the game's zones became empty 2 weeks after launch.

All those P2P games? Don't you mean some? Why is it that SWTOR is going F2P and why did FunCom have to fire half it's employees? what was the overall feeling on those games? No endgame. TOR sucked and TSW while it didn't suck, it was less than expected. And yet, why is it we now have Rift gaining a little bit of momentum with their upcoming expansion? Yes, it's small, but its there. Because you have great development that costs money. And WoW, well, WoW is WoW, and they have many reasons for bleeding Subs, but their P2P model isn't going anywhere for a while.

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

As many before me did , I can only ask  "What server are you on?" I play on EU Gunnar's Hold, sometimes during the day, but mostly late at night to dawn and there are always lots of peeps around. I have all classes on different levels, but whichever I play I can always count on other players being around in most zones.

What are you talking about? there is plenty of people everywhere. What server? what city? If you want to see people go to Lions Arch. Thats where we hang out....

And comparing to TERA would not be fair sice TERA has only 3 servers and GW2 has more than 20 only in NA.

This doesnt solve the original problem that some servers are becoming Ghost Towns, less than a month after launch.

Werent ANet closing the sales of online copies since they dint want to overpopulate servers / open new servers or somesuch? And still barely 1 month in they are losing population on their servers?

I just looked and the servers were 9 full, 12 High, and 3 medium at about 9:00pm pst.

 

Riiiight and the OP is obviously lying that HIS server is low on population, because he is a hater and a troll, right?

Of course, you could be trolling, just to cause a bit of mischief.

This guy dint even take the effort the veil his disbelif that GW2 isnt filled to the brim with players, across all servers and areas and timeslots just because his server is full, at the moment.

 

 

OP, you should have stated your server name, that way the special kind of people wouldnt imply that you are lying but would only be telling you to switch servers.

 

Some people feel that because their current server is populated, that means ALL servers are alive and kicking. And even if their original server isnt populated, they get a free transfer out and into a high population server and...the population is STILL alive and kicking!! Facing the problem and acepting the facts arent on the agenda of any fanboy (not only talking bout GW2 fanboys but in general).

BTW, I consider GW2 to be a good game, but not at the level that some misguided people want everyone ELSE to believe. So am I also a troll and a hater since I dont keep pushing the [GW2-IS-THE-BEST!!] Card across the table??
