I agree with the OP.

First time since Vanilla WoW I have felt this way... and not had that feeling rapidly and tragically vanish after a couple of weeks.

WAR, TR, EvE, Rift, TOR... burned brightly and snuffed out quickly.

I think I measured my expectations greatly for GW2 after being really "burned" by TOR.

Some who think me a fanboi may call BS and doubt my excitement for GW2 has been tempered in comparison, but I digress.

Perhaps it is because my play style / life style has changed dramatically in the past year, but I am still very much in love with the game play GW2 is giving me and can't get enough of it!

Not having a subscription has really changed things for me. I've been playing exclussively subscription based MMOs since 1999 and now playing GW2 just feels so refreshing to not feel "preasured" if that makes sense?

I've probably been lurking for way, way too long.

Oh and I reckon arenanets take on df us a shoe in for the 1st expansion.

I mean between them arenanet and bethseda have most of the actual talent from mythic. It's just the marketing drones and the interns left at ea.

To busy playing GW2 to post much around here... *shrug*

Why would achievers not like the game? The list of achievements is impressive and has enough things to keep completionists busy for a long time. Still working on 100% world completion and the story isn't even over yet, think I'm at the level 78 part now. All the hidden areas to be explored, and a neat little list of all the things you did or didn't do yet. :)

A certain type of acheiver won't like the game.

Those that like to get all elitist going "sorry your gear scores not good enough"

Those who get off on raid guild power politics

Those who like to prove how "goode" they are at pvp by grinding / afking / botting their way to the best gear so they can 1 shot "noobs"

Or that they didn't plan their RvR very well. DAoC never had, nor needed any queues :P


But yeah, it's probably the best themepark since DAoC/EverQuest (WoW was an awful game). But I'm not sure if its PvE is better than Vanguard's yet. And its PvP does NOT beat DAoC or Darkfall yet.

ANET has the worst customer service ive experienced in years , the game is bugged and we are working on over 5 weeks now and no design plans for moving forward. Even TSW had more communication with their community then this game does. You have glitch hacks in WvW were idiots glitch particle effects so they turn invisible so they wont die in pvp because they are losers. You have trebs that hit enemy keeps from safely inside of portal keeps. I can keep going and going why world vs world is just a horrible retake on realm vs realm.

[mod edit], it's the "achievers" who like to have *vertical character progression after hitting level cap* that will be disappointed with GW2. 

They can adjust a game all day, but they can't help the issue between the keyboard and the chair.

OP I would have expected a post like this from someone who started gaming with WoW, not an MMO veteran. Your standards are way too low, sir. How can you even like the PvP in this game after having played DAOC?

What's strange, perhaps, is that I really enjoy GW 2 and was huge into DAOC for years.  I spend all my time in WvW and it's a blast.  Who knows what the future brings?  For right now, I'm in a good spot :D

In my opinion, the actual gameplay mechanics in pvp are far better than in DAOC.  The only element missing is Darkness Falls.


Noone isn't a word; It's "no one". On a side note, you can guess where the word "none" came from.
Their, There, and They're are not interchangeable.

Yes, farmers, bots and hackers think the same. 

those are present in all popular games anyway...

Got to say i´ve never seen a single bot in my EU server.... just some gold spaming like everywhere else...

not that many let me say...

Swing by Fort Aspenwood and go to the cursed shore - there are anywhere from 10-25 bots at any given time at different DE's. There are 2 specific DE they like to camp the most. There are a handful of bots that have been at the same loc going on 2 weeks or more, and i have reprted them daily and they are still chuggin along. Doing these DE is a fight just to get hits on the mobs before the bots rape em. This is just the one zone im in most of the time,so if they are in that zone im sure there are many more spread around the world.

I'm not an arenanet fanboi. I don't like gw1 AT ALL. I wasn't in gw2 beta, I picked them game up a week after launch thinking "hey I won't have to pay a sub, i will give it a shot".

I was expecting a YAWC* but with slightly better pvp. Then I played it and got blown away as it basicly takes its riffs from daoc & coh instead of bloody wow like every single AAA mmo of the past 8 years. I'm releived not to be playing the same bloody game we've all being playing in some form or other the past 8 years (well unless you were playing eve)

Well, I'm enjoying it.  I end up getting Bartle-typed as an explorer, and don't give 2 hoots about gear progression beyond any basic level required to overcome challenges, so no suprise there.

I've found that I enjoy situations more when I get more into the events in a zone and seeing how the events lead on to each other, as well as some of the interconnecting dialogue, which is often funny or charming...well, to me at least!

It also beats sliced bread for me by miles...but that could be because I'm not massively keen on bread.

Well, I'm done with pretty much everything the game has to offer PvE wise (bar some jumping puzzles). The game is tolerable (generic fantasy story, generic classes, less choice than the original) and it's saving grace is that there is no subscription once the month is over and people run out of stuff to do.


Only thing that keeps me remotely interested (apart from a good guild) is the WvW. Well designed maps, decent class balance but issues with the server matchup that kill the entertainment factor, fast.


Stil, it's the honeymoon period for many people who wished this game was the second coming (after falling for Anet's hyping machine), so you're bound to see some unreasonable defending.

No please not more vanilla wow nostalgia, I was there at launch and many years after it was fun but not al that great. Mostly it was a bunch of 60's ganking the little guys and npcs. I swear all you have to is plant a seed in the gaming world and it runs rampant.  Vanilla wow was cool for it's time cause it was brand new and the "in thing" looking back now by todays standards it's a damn inconvenient grindfest. GW2 is just plain fun without the crap.

well said. the game is a joke for the hype lvl it has. its a mid-range game and for me and most of my friends / guldies is already an alt mmo. good because it has no sub but not so good to have it as a main one.

If you love progressive dungeons and raids you wont enjoy GW2 long term.

This is the issue many on these forums are having. They bitch about WoW being old and stale, then when GW2 offers something different they cry because its not enough like WoWs progressive PVE endgame...


I personally hated endgame in WoW, I hated the heroic farm, i hated the raid farm, I hated the faction grind and i hated that i was stuck in a city queueing and two high level zones at max level.

GW2 gives me an entire world thats always relevant. Gives me skill based spvp, massive scale wvw, dungeons that are fun and have nothing to do with the trinity, Crafting thats worthwhile and no monthly fee...


Hardcore endgame pve players overlook all of that because they want nothing but highly competitive Pve epeen contests.
