GW2 is a game for casuals and those who want to play their game rather than live it. In just a month I have had a rediculous amount of fun and am only lvl 47.  There is fun everywhere, especially for those who take the time to play the game as it was designed. In short the OP should go grind away his existence in a game that requires 8 hour per day devotion.

I know what I expected out of the game, and that is no traditional endgame that makes me feel like everything else beforehand is obsolete content. That's what I got, so I'm content.

So no, GW2 isn't fail to me.

I've posted a few things here about GW2, nothing bad and nothing great, which is pretty much how i feel about this game. [mod edit] GW2 is too easy to level, way to setup for the casual players, will not hold population do to this. The PVP is kind of funny because it doesn't mean anything really, can't wear what gear i want when i want to? what is this? I just hate games that force you to do things, like oh you want to pvp? here your level 80 now, oh you want to wear your pvp gear in the world? are you crazy? you can't do that, you have to wear your pve gear there, it's just silly.

I'm going to say no GW2 is not Fail, but it's not the epic great game fans say it is either. I just hope that over time they make some changes, then it might be something i go back and look at.

 

 

Peace,

Obviously to the FANS it IS the great game they say it is.  That's why they're fans.  We're all entitled to our opinions and recognizing that is simply part of maturity.

Haters are hitting a new low.  They are actually trying to argue that GW2 is F2P instead of B2P.  I guess they need something to hate on since their other arguments fail.

There is a bunch of F2P MMOs which got shut down at some point

Please swap your F and B buttons on your keyboard.

Why? I´m not getting framed by a marketing heist and someone replacing "F" with "B" and call it a new model. GW2 is F2P with a cash shop, end of story.

Umm what is a game that is actually free to play then? Like all these ones (probably with a cash shop) you just download without paying for and go for it? D2P - Download to Play? F2P for me have always been no cost downloads...

I don't get what all the hate is for. Every game has it's nitch play what makes you happy. No need to try and drag down a game because it doesnt suit you.

I personally think GW2 is an epic game.  But then again, I'm a mostly PvE player.  I dabble some in WvWvW (I see that as something long term later after I finish the story line).  I think the problem for some people is that they rush through the game to get to 80.  Then they think, "now what?  I don't want to go back to the lower areas.  I don't get to wear my super awesome PvP gear in PvE.  So, now what do I do?"  It is a dillema for sure.

 

I prefer the slower approach.  See the game.  Live the game.  Enjoy it in the PvE area.  I've been exploring like crazy and following my story.  Trying to build a life for my character.  That's what makes it epic for me.

I agree with you as well, maybe because I am older is why I like the start of mmos years and years ago you took your time...now with the ADD generation t hey want it all now now now and when they get it they are then bored.

I never understood why folks rushed t hrough to get to 80 blow past content and then are burnt out and feel a bit lackluster about the game.   Take your time there isnt a rush and as you do that by the time you do hit 80 more content will already be on it's way if not already out by then.  

Plus there are so many paths for each class/race combo you really can have many long epic adventures if you just take the time to enjoy them and HAVE FUN abover anything.  At least for me i do not enjoy rushing it takes the fun out of it and becomes more like a job then entertainment.

just my two cents. and ive been playing mmos for about 17 years now.

trolling all over lol.... someone's on a mission it seems.

Spvp puts pvprs off in a little area called the mist, that's cut off from the rest of the game world.. This is true. You still attack me personally.

 

Swtor 1st month

GW2 !st month

This is what is linked to, which is true. Yet and still, you attack me personally.

B2P is another marketing invention by Arenanet, like calling glorified yellow circles "dynamic events".

You either got the cheapest lifetime sub on the market with GW2, or it's a F2P title with upfront box cost and cash shop.

That is the reality. B2P is nothing new, just a shiny new name for old business models others invented long, long ago.

 

LOTRO+lifetime sub = buy to play

TSW + lifetime sub = buy to play

Any other MMO + lifetime sub = buy to play

He is right... However there are huge differences between swtor and guild wars 2 that could easily explain this and the bright you're for gw2. I would list them here, but I am on my iPad.

Youre right. LOTRO, TSW, etc invented it.... several years after GW1 was already using it.

What are the reasons? Give me two if you have time. I've heard one. This poster said that there is no prep time in GW2 so people play less. It's the best answer I've heard because it's the only one I've heard.

I'll give ya two...

#1:  Based on what games are popular on X-Fire I'd say the site trends a bit more "hardcore" and the people most likely to still be putting longer marathon sessions into the game are "casuals" or more accurately "non-raiders" who are happily working on their Crafting or Legendaries or World Completion or just wandering the world or helping lower level guildies.

I'm guessing (impossible to tell) that the X-Fire players that are still playing hop in for a few matches of sPvP or maybe some WvW if they don't get caught in queues. We might see X-Fire numbers trend upwards after ANet implements a solution for WvW Queues and introduces GvG, Sponsored Tournaments, and Spectator Mode which are the kind of features that cater to the (IMO) "X-Fire crowd."

Previous MMOs have inflated numbers merely because people are running the same Raids over and over again every week for months. They will farm mats to raid, log in early to prepare for their raid, talk after their raid, and deal with any "gear adjustments" they need to make as well.

That playstyle kept "X-Fire Users" in-game for quite some time. It didn't work well in SWTOR because TBH the "gear grind" wasn't "grindy" enough and people blew through it with nothing left to do. These same people have also largely left GW2 as well as it doesn't have that kind of an "endgame" at all.

#2:  Following on to that last point, X-Fire isn't going to be good at tracking how many new people come into the game unless they are "X-Fire Users" and I expect that kind of gamer to be more of an "early adopter" than a "follower" when it comes to games. GW2 is still #2 and #7 on Amazon which means there are new players... but I'll bet hardly any of them are X-Fire Users.

 

Like I said all theory and speculation, but the GW2 Servers are still well-populated in all the zones I play in. You don't see anybody making "ghost town" posts like we saw with SWTOR nor "problem getting groups/need LFG" threads. To me that's a pretty clear sign that the Server Populations are still healthy regardless of X-Fire numbers.

As if people like you would stick around even if it had traditional endgame.
