Aye, I'll check in from time to time with the game since there's no sub fee. I got my money's worth, sadly I chew through content in a game so quickly, heh.

I enjoyed it for a while, when I felt like I was progressing and had goals.  I honestly don't care for cosmetic armors or dungeon runs, nor grinding for legendaries and karma.  At this point I feel like logging in is simply to waste time, and it offers me nothing I can't find in a single player game. 

I generally run into this issue with most MMOs once I reach max level, so it isn't a problem I have with GW2 specifically.  It just generally takes much longer.

I'm not entirely sure how big the e-sport market is, but it seems they're pushing most of their focus in that direction to increase income - maybe at the cost of endgame diversions to keep non-pvp interest piqued.

I didn't care for sPvP, I wasn't interested enough to put in the effort to research my class and strive to be good at it.  WvW was fun, but as of last night my group was sitting in Lion's Arch for two hours in queue with none of us getting invited to the party.

Luckily, on the reverse side of the coin, the decisions made on armor being linear means I can choose to stop playing now and come back as new content is added without feeling far behind the power curve.

So really, I think the game is amazingly okay.  Its an enjoyable waste of time that allows me to play for a short time and move on in as many phases as I like.

It's a pretty decent game that I will keep on my laptop and play every now and then.   The game has fewer bugs than most games at release that have come out in years, but I just can't get into it the way I have other games.  /shrug have fun for those that actually love it.

Ooook... so to clarify: this is my own opinion and it is not to be taken as a fact of the game so there is no need to go all fanboyrage on me. I havent played the game much so my information might be wrong...

I voted for: its ok for a while because:

 

First the game feels very repetetive. My highest character is 55 norn necro and that is as far as i could bare. All the Hearts and DE's are very similar and it really doesnt feel very different from a quest in for example wow. I actually would prefer going talking to a questgiver because then you can atleast get into some lore. Also i miss rewards :(

Dungeons, done 3 so far, were all very linear. Lots of story and lore i guess but nothing for an adventurer like me. 

Storyline of the norn was very childish and badly written for my taste. Not to mention that as a necromancer you are forced to be a kind hearted person with a miniskirt and bows. Class uniqueness is something i look in an MMO and in GW they all seem to be able to do everything and that is boring. IF people get everything they get bored...Tried other classes after this but the glitter was gone and my rainbowglasses broken.

Crafting wasnt anything new to me as far as i got.

Downleveling... why god why... i know it might be fun for people who wanto do all the things on same character but for me it was a bore. It felt like i wasnt progressing at all.

Waypoints everywhere.. why? 

Vistas and Poi's were fun for the first few areas but then started feeling very dull.

Very antisocial. I know i know.. "go to a social guild.." and "if ur not social its ur own fault" . No no noooooo. Guilds are just like chatrooms not much more to them. De´s and hearts dont really make you go for social interaction wich leaves you all alone... :(

Overall too much candy and too little depth. This game is in my opinion made for those people who dont really have time for a very deep game.

You echo a lot of my own thoughts. I feel like I'm one of the few people who don't care for the downleveling. I understand why it's it's there, but there is something very satisfying about going back to lower level content and blowing through it. It gives me a sense of my character growing instead of staying the same forever. Yes, starter zones will be a bit easier, but my Ele still can't take on a vet/champion without help, and it's discouraging.

How about instead of wanting bigger numbers become a better player yourself. There are tons of videos in youtube of people taking down champion group events SOLO there are also some of them even from orr.

The progression comes in just playing better your character overall instead of increasing numbers.

While there is some truth to that, most of the caster classes are are poorly designed , broken, or both.  Why learn to play a classes that are full of bugs or have poor mechanics?  Lets take Elemental for example;  I like the class, but I have to work twice as hard to achieve the same damage (and stay alive) as I do on a guardian.   I don't want them to be easy, but I also don't want to work twice as hard for the SAME damage as my guardian puts out for half the effort.  The Mes and Necro don't fair much better either.

The bugs and poor designs aren't as glaring in big groups, but really come to the surface going solo and PVP.

^ Exactly that :D

I find my Ele to be extremely weak. I didn't notice it in beta or launch because there were so many people around that I couldn't tell she was doing horrible damage. By the time I started getting frustrated with her I had already progressed so far in world completion that I just couldn't stomach the thought of doing that all over again on another character. So (unfortunately) she is my "main", even though I'm not happy about it.

I realize that I'm probably not as skilled as a lot of people at gaming. I also have a very fine line between challenging and just plain frustrating. So personally for me, the Ele is frustrating. I want to be a glass cannon, but I feel like a glass bb gun. I much prefer the other classes I've tried, but like I said, I don't have the willpower to start map completion all over again.

Both your posts are funny considering the only videos i have found of people soloing champions in Orr are from elementalist.

Im a guardian and i cant do it. This might be harsh but this really is a case of L2p and that includes me in it.

i'm pretty much purely a pvp player and member of a large guild.

i can just go and pvp with all of my friends whenever i want and they don't even know what level i am.  i like that i can do the same things my level 80 friends are doing and with all 40 of them at the same time if we want.

that alone makes it the best MMO i've ever played.

but then aside from that is just a solid game, very few complaints.

Then why bother posting it?  He doesn't have to like it.  He hates it, good for him.  You love it, good for you.  I think it gets totally boring, so I guess I'm a whiny little b$&@) too.  Oh well, you opinion is as meaningless to me as QuicklyScott's is to you.  We don't have to agree and obviously we don't.

Sadly, the only thing that interested me in GW2, the WvsWvsW, is the one thing I don't get to do often. It's like you said, sit in a que for hours to try and get in. I too am not interested in spvp, dungeon grinding or gear grinding again after doing that for years in WoW, when I played years ago.

WvsWvsW was my only interest, and since it's not readily available anytime I log in and want to do it, I don't have much interest in logging in. Moving to a different server is not a good fix for this either btw, before someone suggests it. You shouldn't have to switch to a low pop server to get into WvsW. Arenanet knew it would be a popular part of the game and still can't figure out how to get more people in.

New and shiny lasted one week and I've never lost my interest in any MMO so fast before. Basically after doing first area you've seen everything. While it has some good things like beautiful cities it's also awfully shallow with tedious copy paste DE's and even zones. Maybe because it's f2p but I don't know.

What makes GW2 so shallow?

What boggles my mind is that that guy you answer to, quicklyscott, who is on my block list since a quite long time now because of the repetition of always the same GW2 bashing, is still here, and sadly I still see his bis repetitas ad nauseum hate posts when quoted. He was here during beta bashing the game, he's still here, still bashing the game. What's the agenda of such people? Feeding on misery? A holy crusade to convince the fans their game sucks? So bored in his real life that he has to pass time on forums of games he self admitedly hates? For hell's sake, I'd be miles away from this forum and anything related to this game if I hated it that much.

And again, absolutely no reason given in his post except more bashing of the game and insulting of its player base.

Quite a good example of why some of the people who really enjoy and play the game are sometimes pissed on this forum.

The forums asked me on the front page "how much do you like GW2".  I'm not allowed to answer?  sigh... I don't go out of my way to "bash" any game thank you very much.  If I'm on your blocked list it is because you don't agree with my views, not because I go out of my way to purposely hate and troll.  I'm not going to let condenscending fools like you make me feel contrite so I'll step around my opinion so you don't think I'm a troll, that is dishonest.

 

 I have no "agenda". 

 

I was hyped for the game, played beta, hated it, post my opinions.  The fact that you've blocked me because sometimes I express my opinions in a  vitrolic manner is your problem not mine.  I've done nothing wrong apart from not share your views.  Your post is a demonstration of your own immaturity, Mr. Holier Than Thou.

 

Also, please, search my post history, when was the last time I've "hated" on GW2.  Please, I'd love to know what you think constitutes hate.  Shit, apart from today I haven't posted in like 3 weeks ffs.

 

If infact you discover that you need to correct yourself and apologise for this misinterpretation of my character(which if you were honest you would), take me off your blocked list.  Thanks.

I wouldn't take anything he says seriously if i were you. Check his post history. It is nothing but full of personal attacks against anyone who criticises GW2? For some reason he is under the impression that it is GW2 fansite.

Yes. GW2 is a sandbox, and here is the proof for it.

All joking aside, GW2 is as much a sandbox as SWTOR railshooter is a "space flight simulator".

But hey, thanks for the giggle.

GW2 was one of the most boring games I've ever played.  It's so incredibly repugnant to me, I'm repulsed by the mention of it.  Everything from the over zealous fans to the shallow gameplay makes me irritated that it has so much attention.  When I first started playing MMOs 11 years ago, GW2 is the polar opposite of what I envisaged a MMO would be like in 2012.  It is in my top 10 worst games of all time, perhaps even the top 5.

Game is complete trash...

IMO.

 

What makes GW2 so shallow?

What boggles my mind is that that guy you answer to, quicklyscott, who is on my block list since a quite long time now because of the repetition of always the same GW2 bashing, is still here, and sadly I still see his bis repetitas ad nauseum hate posts when quoted. He was here during beta bashing the game, he's still here, still bashing the game. What's the agenda of such people? Feeding on misery? A holy crusade to convince the fans their game sucks? So bored in his real life that he has to pass time on forums of games he self admitedly hates? For hell's sake, I'd be miles away from this forum and anything related to this game if I hated it that much.

And again, absolutely no reason given in his post except more bashing of the game and insulting of its player base.

Quite a good example of why some of the people who really enjoy and play the game are sometimes pissed on this forum.

 

What I'm intrested in why people feel this or that, why they feel this feature sucks compare to whatever game they like.

The point is they always write the same old..................shallow............nothing new to see here................ kind of argument but fail to explain what they really mean, what's good what is bad about the game.

They just use the the classic words to promote thier argument and lean back and think hey I made a great post and feel good about it.

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

Very well put. This is exactly how I felt.

I enjoy it for the same reason I enjoyed GW1.  The PvP strategy and game balance.  And the mesmer.  One of my favorite classes out of any game.

Anyone feeling underpowered, having problems soloing vets, or any other "capability" issues are simply behind the curve.  Its not a fault of the game design.

It'll probably be overshadowed by Arche Age, but its one of the better games of the past 10 years.  Only because the MMOs of the past 10 years have been easy to beat.

Still liking the game alot myself but I took a week vacation so I when I came back the game felt fresh again.  I did try it on my mac while away but playing with a track pad is horrible, need my controller for ths game. I notice most people who liked it from start still do and most who didn't don't, gos to show you should trust your own oppinion and gut. peace....
