I disagree. In other MMOs you can be better than other players by obtaining the best gear and being able to accomplish things that are not possible for them. I want recognition, I want to be known as one of the best in some catagory. This game does not offer that, the game has absolutely no purpose at all. There is no benefit to being level 80 when you could just be level 10. This game is really confusing and it isn't looking like it will have a bright future.

I'd love to know the name of this MMO you can play where your character will end up being totally unique and more powerful than all the other players around you, because afaik any player in every MMO out there can at some point attain the same gear, same points, same achievments, same everything as everyone else around them.

If the OP has to ask "whats the point" then playing MMO's aren't for you.

I've been playing mmos since 1997. In every successful mmo, there is a way for players who work hard to be recognized in some way. Guild Wars 2 does not have that. If you don't understand my point, you don't know shit about mmos.

 

In other games players "can" obtain the things that you have, but the reality is that most will not be able to due to lack of time and/or skill. Therefore, you are seperated because you have put in the hard work.

That mentality is beyond me, always the need of some sort of progression to make the players feel great about themselves because they could spend more time ingame to earn that "special thing" that the others won't have. That's why I love eSports games over all those games with their stupid progression, because it's all about skills.

 

Ands thats fine.  But you dont see us loading up your skill based games and whining on the forums and bitching to developers that they dont have enough progression of character?  No, we go play the games we enjoy instead of ruining other people games.

Thats what happened in the MMO industry,  A bunch of non MMO players came in, made a big fuss about the CORE ASPECTS of what makes an MMORPG an MMORPG, and now you have the glowing piece of shit that is the mmo of current times.

This is what happens when a game is designed for everyone to be a winner. 

 

Oh well at least borderlands and torchlight are pretty fun for now.

Having fun. Unless you think having fun is pointless too.

It sounds like you just want to stand above everyone and look down on them. We really dont care how long you've been playing MMO's or how deeply you think you understand them some of us don't have fun being the end all beat all. There are people that exist that think that being the best is boring. That just having fun with a game is what's most important. Why do I need this awesome gear that no one else will obtain for whatever reason(Lazy, wrong time wrong place, hax?). If I can win every fight, kill everything, and never be defeated then what is the point of the game? You see what I did there? Just flipped your whole point around. You say a game that's about having fun and lacks gear progression and e-peen stroking is pointless and I say your idea is pointless.

Although, if you think about it, with that mentality all games should appear pointless. Halo: Why am I shooting these guys. What have they ever done to me? The Elder Scrolls: Why do I need to play this game? Killing these dragons is so boring and pointless. World of Warcraft: Why do i need to grind to max level just to raid 5 days a week and 'maybe' get a piece of gear since I'll be one of 50 people there...

You see what I mean? That mentality just doesn't work here. Perhaps the game just isnt for you...

SWG Pre-CU, EVE Online need I say more?

There are MMOs where you build your character.

WoW, EQ, Rift, They are the theme parks. Your world is laid out for you, you only play in it, since you don't build your world, you focus on building a character.

 

Then there are MMOs where you can focus on building the world you play in. The players themselves become and build the content. That is their play.

THese are the games this poster above mentioned among others.

 

Then there is GW2. It's really neither.  It's tecnically a themepark, but it's limited (by design) in the area of building the character .  You have no impact on your world at all. But that's not uncommon in Themeparks.

 

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.

Why do you keep ignoring the fact that even though you dont like the way it is, there are things to show off.

There are 80 or so levels in pvp and there are tiered armors in it. A person walking around with a kick ass looking armor has mroe experience than someone starting with default pvp armor and can show it all they want, they dont get an advantage for it but if another pvp see them they will go WOW.

If a person sees someone with a full set of arah dungeon gear and a legendary weapon they will also be amazed by it.

If someone is with a full WvW set people will also be impressed by it.

All of these sets give you recognition. The only difference is that they dont give you better stats, the same way GW1 was.

None of you are getting the OP's point. There is no Character Recognition in this game. You don't need gear to be recognized. In WvWvW you are just a number, in sPvP you are just another red or blue guy trying stand in a big circle the longest to take a point. 

This games PvP is great but trash at the same time. This is supposed to be an MMO and MMO's give you some sort of character recognition.

Calm down, retard. Stop jumping to insults and typical bullshit conclusions. You are turning my words into what YOU want them to be so you can spew your bullshit. This game is lacking serious content and that is a fact. There is no way to improve.

 

It doesn't matter if you are the best "Skilled" pvper, you get nothing to show for it, so it is pointless.

ROFL! Really? Quoted from you dude : I disagree. In other MMOs you can be better than other players by obtaining the best gear and being able to accomplish things that are not possible for them.

If that doesn't mean you need better gear than other to be able to beat them I really don't know what you're trying to say here mate. Please explain to me. The game isn't laking any content at all, hell there's more content that is working in this game than some other MMO at their release. Way to improve?? I'm not sure what you're talking about here but gear won't make you improve.... If you can't be a good player now, gear won't change this. It's how you understand/learn the game that will make you a better player.

Why the need to get something to "Show off" yourself?? People who are good pvper don't need that kind of stuff because people know them, they made a name for themselves by being a top player. People don't recognize them because they have that cool looking armor/weapons, they just know by the name. So what you really what isn't really recognition, its more the gear that will make you stand out from the crowd. Guess what, top pvp players doesn't care about this stuff. Your name is all you need.

No you dont need to say anything more. You clearly dont understand theres a difference between themeparks and sandboxes.

Why people in this community continue to try to mix them together is beyond me.

They are basically two completely different genres, none being better than the other, just different.

WvW seems pointless really. The bonuses are not significant enough to care about.

spvp is pointless as the gear cannot be worn outside

Dungeons are pointless other than farming shards for crafting

It would seem there is no way to elevate yourself beyond others, there is no form of name recognition, no way to be known as the richest, best, etc. Just pointless content.

The graphics and questing system are very good, but once you hit 80 the game just comes to a halt. Perhaps I am missing something here?

Finally people are seeing what I have been saying since Arena.Net said they were going to make GW2. Arena.Net and NCsoft have no concept of end game whether it is PvP or PvE. Everyone laughed at me and said Guild Wars 2 would be different from Guild Wars 1. whelp here it comes

 

"I TOLD YOU SO!"

Pretty sure Arenanet has a very good concept of endgame. Guild Wars 1 is a fine testiment to that. Go play through GW1 and try to sail through all of its content; it will take you quite some time. Saying "I told you so" only solidifies that you are nothing more than a blind hater. I think, in fact that most of Ncsofts published titles have a large amount of "end game". Look at Aion. Love it or hate it aion has a TON of content. Every content patch they introduced several new zones with hundreds of quests, new world bosses, several new instances, new gear, skins, housing, etc etc. Aion may not have been the game for me when i played it for x months. And the fact that it is now F2P and still maintains its servers and can push out the same amount of new content at a regular pace is impressive. Lineage II is another good testiment to Ncsofts knowlege of endgame. GW1, with every new expansion, added a new map to the game that was either equal in size to the original or larger. They pretty much made an entirely new game to add on to the original. We might as well be on Guild Wars 4. So I'm going to have to disagree with you, though you obviously won't care and will just continue to spout hate.

We do get the OPs point.  We also get that he's probably just in the wrong game if he actually plays this.  That would be his mistake if he does, the game seems to play reasonably close to as advertised to me.  No plan survives all the way thru so I'm sure the game isn't quite what it started out to be but it is close to what they've been saying/showing for the past 6 months or more.

I don't find the game boring.  I do find the game fun.  No game suits every player, just time to move on for some of you and many should never have considered this game in the first place.  That's plain as day.  Doesn't mean the game is doomed to fail or anything remotely close.

People don't recognize them because they have that cool looking armor/weapons, they just know by the name. So what you really what isn't really recognition, its more the gear that will make you stand out from the crowd. Guess what, top pvp players doesn't care about this stuff. Your name is all you need.

I do not understand how you do not understand the point of what I am saying is. You are just a dumb fuck, just like 99% of the people who post here, the reason I have been banned at least 12 times.

I'm thinking 12 bans has more to do with your lack of self control than the posters here.

Not my fault you can't follow the rules.

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.

how do you have fun in game that is boring?

You don't. You move onto something else you might find fun, not being missed by any of the people who had fun with the game you left.


Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

BOYCOTTING EA / ORIGIN going forward.

spvp is pointless as the gear cannot be worn outside

Dungeons are pointless other than farming shards for crafting

It would seem there is no way to elevate yourself beyond others, there is no form of name recognition, no way to be known as the richest, best, etc. Just pointless content.

The graphics and questing system are very good, but once you hit 80 the game just comes to a halt. Perhaps I am missing something here?

You play coz its fun? I do agree though the lack of progression that shows all the time you put in is a turn off for many people.

I've always been absolutely perplexed by what people believe is going to hold them to this game w/out some sort of more evolved character progression. Character progression is pretty much the linchpin of MMOs.

Even an MMO w/ a great combat system (which i personally don't think GW2 has, but whatever) is still a shell of combat system compared to the variety of other game genres.  Without a strong character progression it's just not going to keep most people's attention very long.

I think all of you are cry baby whiners.

GW2 has no content? GW2 has no character recognition?

GW2 has nothing to do end game?

 

If any of you can produce me a screenshot where you are standing with a full suit of the dungeon token armor on while holding a legendary weapon of your choice then everything you are complaining about is invalid in my eyes.

Not a single person in this entire thread has even began to scratch the surface on any of those goals. I know because the requirements for these items are on a scale of difficulty so insane that many will never see it.

Yet you want to sit around and say GW2 has no character recognition. The first time I see a player with the items I named above equipped I will personally send them a tell to ask where they are so I can come personally face to face tell them they are a bad ass and earned respect.

Now stop crying and go get "recognition" for your character.
