Hi

 
OP  9/25/12 5:39:57 PM#1

Sure, I'll admit you could have been more social in other games. You might have even, I don't know talked to a few people here and there, participated in some group activities, raid bosses and the like. You might even of felt like you were playing in a larger community of gamers, but it doesn't matter.

The fact is, is that if you want a social experience you have to seek it out. You can't rely on mutual interests and forced interactions, think about it, do you go to a hobbiest club or a spin class in real life, or do you simply walk up to a fellow on the street minding his own business: "Hey bro, let's be friends!"

Of course, you go up to the guy on the street. Why the hell wouldn't you, you anti-social or something? Spin class, let me tell you if you need to go to organized group activities to meet new people then you need to learn some social skills, fuck everything, interact with people everywhere, but the places designed to facilitate it.

Life, is not responsible for making you friends, you are, so don't expect people to organize this shit around you.

It's the same in GW2, why should they make grouping mandatory? Is grouping mandatory in real-life? Hell no.

You just walk into an office building and start tappity tapping at a computer and everyone else can mind their fucking business, why? Because you don't need their help, everything in the real world is designed for individual completion.

"But, back in the day, when we had Trinity and people were forced to work together, they had to talk. Ice breakers like, 'What spec ar e you bra?' and 'How you doin' sonny?' were the norm. How come it isn't in Guild Wars 2?"

'Cause Guild Wars 2 is trying not to shove it's social penis down your throat of course, they want you to have to go out on a limb and have to expose yourself on the internet, so that YOU can shove YOUR social penis down somebody elses throat aka. Making a Friend.

So, I say again to anybody complaining about how this game is anti-social or that it's solo-orientated mechanisms lead towards isolation and single player esque multiplayer experiences. I say again, to fuck you good sirs and madams.

For it is you, the basement dwelling, attic conversion, three bed condo living anti-socialists that are anti-social. All GW2 is guilty of is letting you be yourselves, and if the real world were so forgiving you could live your entire life in a miserable depressing isolation.

So be thankful, or go back to WoW or any other game in the past ten years that actually realized MMORPG's has the word Multiplayer in it, and that Multiplayer RPG's were originally designed with player limits as group activities for people with shared interests. Because GW2 forgot about that with the new knowledge of how awesome they are, and they are saying to fuck you too.

Cheers, GW2 Fan.

I kinda agree with your message about people needing to try to be social themselves to get socialization, but I get the feeling your actual post execution is only going to set off more landmines than it suppresses.

I really don't want to read your wall of text, but any game where you can complete 90 percent of its content solo, then it promotes anti socializing

I have to disagree. I'm the biggest (hyperbole) GW2 apologist on this site, and GW2's game structure does not foster nor encourage communication. Part of the genius of the dyanmic event structure that doesn't require grouping offsets the social aspect of an MMO. There are plenty of people playing, rezzing one another and doing events, but they aren't talking to one another. They're playing this as a solo experience until they get to dungeons.

 

I would love some Barrens style chat somewhere in this game.

this just isn't true.. but if that's what you want to believe... I'm also curious how you could even solo in this game aside from crafting I have yet to do an event without people running with me.. also I'd really love to see anyone solo a META event which there are 2 in every zone I have seen so far. Iv'e ran into numerous champions that have so much HP i could hardly dent them after kiting them for 10 min.. Fact is there is no way to tell how much of the game is soloable yet since there are just to many people around fighting with you. Now if you are the type that feels fighting alongside others helping each other complete the same event is playing solo then that's another story

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

For most of the content, you can if you want. Sure, the social tools are there, but it has little to do with the gameplay itself. Again, you can if you want. But there is no advantage to do so. The socials will find people, the introverts will solo, either way, it's not on the game it's on the individual. whether you like it or not, whether it's for you or not, whether it's better or not, Is subjective. While I wouldn't use the term antisocial, GW2 is not the best example of a game made to bring people together.

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.

No surprise there, too lazy to read a medium length post, I don't think you got what it takes for a "Street Meet".

 Thats the sign of social misfits. If it is not needed they dont do it. I am social in the game because I choose to be, I dont need to be forced to be social. What promotes being antisocial, is being antisocial. You are blaming the game for the shortcomings of people.

You just walk into an office building and start tappity tapping at a computer and everyone else can mind their fucking business, why? Because you don't need their help, everything in the real world is designed for individual completion.

"But, back in the day, when we had Trinity and people were forced to work together, they had to talk. Ice breakers like, 'What spec ar e you bra?' and 'How you doin' sonny?' were the norm. How come it isn't in Guild Wars 2?"

'Cause Guild Wars 2 is trying not to shove it's social penis down your throat of course, they want you to have to go out on a limb and have to expose yourself on the internet, so that YOU can shove YOUR social penis down somebody elses throat aka. Making a Friend.

So, I say again to anybody complaining about how this game is anti-social or that it's solo-orientated mechanisms lead towards isolation and single player esque multiplayer experiences. I say again, to fuck you good sirs and madams.

For it is you, the basement dwelling, attic conversion, three bed condo living anti-socialists that are anti-social. All GW2 is guilty of is letting you be yourselves, and if the real world were so forgiving you could live your entire life in a miserable depressing isolation.

So be thankful, or go back to WoW or any other game in the past ten years that actually realized MMORPG's has the word Multiplayer in it, and that Multiplayer RPG's were originally designed with player limits as group activities for people with shared interests. Because GW2 forgot about that with the new knowledge of how awesome they are, and they are saying to fuck you too.

Cheers, GW2 Fan.

 

Please never walk up to me and ask me to be friends with you.

Thanks.

A unicorn with a crown is going to be hard to miss, me and you are gonna be fast friends Adam!

You must be resistant to Mace by exposure by now.

Why would you use Mace? We're buddies, fast friends and the like.

How does an option to solo something "promote" anti socializing? Its a matter of choice.

Of course, you go up to the guy on the street. Why the hell wouldn't you, you anti-social or something? Spin class, let me tell you if you need to go to organized group activities to meet new people then you need to learn some social skills, fuck everything, interact with people everywhere, but the places designed to facilitate it.

Stopped reading there since most friendships are made through organised interaction, whether that be school, work, or activities 

No surprise there, too lazy to read a medium length post, I don't think you got what it takes for a "Street Meet".

Thank god .. Ive seen the vids and you can keep your $100 :p

Probably.   But it's pretty ironic that someone such as myself, hugely introverted (but not shy) has no problems starting conversations, grouping with people and otherwise getting along.

 

And I'm, by nature, very solitary.   I have a handful of very close friends and the rest of the world can sod-off as far as I'm concerned...

 

But it's a social venue, so I trot-out the social-venue rules and get on with it...

 Yet a game with 2 million people playing is not organised enough for you to make friends in?

 Promotes being anti social? People really need their hands held to even be social? FFS.

 

Uh yeah it does...i socialize with my friends, but beyond that if its not necessary then why bother? Most don't.

Socializing is not like if it were a goverment mandate. It doesn't need to be imposed upon you in order for it to be sociable. You either choose to be sociable or not. If the game would not allow you to socialize then Id unserstand your argument.
