OP  10/25/12 2:55:20 AM#1

Because after I played CB, I warned all the Fan Bois they sound silly over hyping the game. They just trolled me, and usually this site banned my account for 2 weeks and removed or blocked my threads. Even though THE SAME OR OTHER critics were writting here...or even though the trolls used super nasty language, they prefer to cover up the truth and promote fan boi trolls. Any ways... Read and weep. I think this far down the road every one knows this game has flopped already. 

 

http://my.mmosite.com/2281165/blog/item/death_of_an_industry_or_why_isnt_anyone_playing_guild_wars_2.html

 

"Guild Wars 2 was not the revolution it was supposed to be, I don't care what sites like MMORPG.com says. They can tout the success of the game all they want, but I see parallels  to titles like The Old Republic and Age of Conan. Both of those had great first time sales and the community proclaimed them to be huge hits. Both of those faded quickly, were relabeled failures, and repackaged as free to play titles.


At least GW2 did away with the monthly fee to begin with. Yet, it still feels like no one wants to play the damn thing already. Everyone bought it because they believed someone finally got it right, and while they made progress, they did not break the glass ceiling.

Most, if not all MMO's, do see a drop in player activity after that first month. Once the newness wears off people go looking for the next big thing, and the real testament to a games life span is how many people come back. I have yet to see a single friend log in in weeks, and I've checked multiple times a day just to see for myself if they do. "

You must find it really hard to believe that there are people who still enjoy the game.

Making threads like this just makes you seem really obnoxious really, like you just have to hear that you're right, which is kind of sad.

If you want to hear that the games failed, It hasn't, might not be revolutionary but It sure is a step in the right direction.

So you posting someones feeling from a blog makes you smile?  Grats I guess.  But blog posts are like arse holes, every one has one.

 

Well, what makes me smile is knowing GW2 has the 2nd largest MMO playerbase and is growing almsot 2 months into the game whereas all other MMO's usually lose players.

 

 

 

Ohh and In before another ban?  Sounds liek someone doesnt learn LOL.

Ugh. It's a flop because someone typed up their negaitve opinion about it? Really?

Dude, stop wasting everyone's time.

Feel like trying Planetside 2? Get a headstart with the starter kit!

 GW2 isn't growing. It's losing players just like any other MMO has the past years.

Overflow zones were no longer necessary just 2 weeks after launch and last week when I logged in my low level ALT for last time during EU prime time, the starting zones were already feeling empty with hardly anyone around.

But hey.... nothing new for me at least. As we've seen this trend for years now.

But I won't say it's a flop tho. They sold enough boxes and very likely already break even and made a profit on box sales alone.

I consider myself a pretty amiable and fair person, but I have to admit to a certain feeling of satisfaction as people slowly realise that GW2 is an illusion.

Almost everything supposedly good about it was something I just didn't understand. I've tried accepting that I might be very wrong - and that I just couldn't see the "genius" of ArenaNet. I bought the game and forced myself to play for two weeks - because I felt it had to be special in some way, to have attained that level of hype and positive response from so many gamers.

Turns out I was all too right, and the game is even more hollow than I would ever have expected.

It has really been something to behold, though. Because the level of stubborn insistence from fans is staggering. Now, I'm not denying the game can be fun or that WvW is pretty good for what it is (if you're into that sort of thing).

But the preaching about how super limited progression, no trinity, pointless dynamic events without story and so on are supposed to be revolutionary - or even evolutionary is just unfathomable.

The game is much more of a step back than forward. The only step forward I can recognise is the no sub model and the excellent technical state of the game, in terms of server technology and patching processes.

But the game, story and world are just bland to me.

I'm pleased that it's on the decline, because maybe it means we don't have to go down that path again with the genre.

Losing players? uh, have you logged in recently? World population is Medium - high and - full. With Full servers in healthy quantities at peak times. On my Realm there are ALWAYS people around me when Leveling. Having just played a week or two leveling in WoW with all this new cross realm stuff. GW2 feels a hundred times more populated and active. The Halloween event has bolstered the population also, with Lions Arch and starting zones feeling over populated. Luckily thanks to the core mechanics having more people around you killing the same mobs doing the same DE's is a good thing. Or else it would be annoying lol. 

 

GW2 may not be the comming of Jebus the sausage lover, you may not like it or understand why others do. But you need do no more than log in and see for yourself to know the game is thriving, people are putting hours and hours into the game. The population is high and constantly increasing. There are new Guilds poping up regu7larly recruiting new players. Content and Events are being added giving the more hardcore even more things to do.

 

The game is far from being a flop, or even bad....

Nothing is objectively bad. GW2 is a fine casual game for people without an interest in dedicating themselves or the time it takes to do it.

As for being a flop, it most certainly isn't. I suspect it's quite successful.

But it's only a matter of a few months before the majority stops playing it. There's simply nothing there - and no amount of new content will change the core of what the game is.

That's my claim, at least.

Let's look back in january 2013. We'll see if it's still thriving.

GW2 s definitely not a flop. It sold a more than decent amount of boxes, plus it features a cash shop appealing enough for people to actually defend it. The last cash shop that I've seen people defend was the LOTRO one and I've seen a few defend Aion's.

 GW2 development costs guestimate around the 50-60 million mark and with over 2 million units sold in the first month, they basically already broke even and  made a huge profit.

So even if all the servers die out in the coming months (which is highly likely seeing the trend with themepark MMO's lately), ArenaNet already made all the profit they need to continue working on the first paid expac.

Weather i like or disliike the current state of GW2 is beside the fact that, anyone who takes any article posted on MMOsite seriously needs to really rethink what it is they are supporting. 

MMOsite is by far one of the absolute worst website's to ever spend any amount of time, when it pertains to MMOs or actual gaming news. Its just a site for massive advertising with zero journalistic integrity. Not like many gaming sites are credible when it comes to journalism, but at least most make an attempt.

To top it off, it makes my anti-virus programs go nutso just visiting it. 

Lolipops !

No it hasn't, where do you get your information from lol.

PW has way more players than GW2.

Linage 2 has more players than GW2.

Drakansang Online has 9+ million players.

That's just three that have far more players that GW2. If you are going to make silly claims at least know what you are talking about before you do.

Don't forget the last part of that saying: And they all stink!

 

But yeah, GW2 a failure? Right. The Second Coming? Not really. A great free MMO, yeppers! But at least you got to smile today.

What makes me smile, is that somebody with your username is crying about how the other kids talked mean words to you.

Not that you found a comment from Joe Random in the far reaches of the internet that talks negatively about GW2. Geez, you could have just picked one from here, there's loads of those.

Of course that would kinda defeat the point you're trying to make; that this is now about MMORPG.com and not the game itself.

 

So just a small word of advice, step away from the forums before you get really mad, okay?

Highlighted the important part. People failed to understand what Anet was actually saying when talking about the game and got a completely wrong view of what the game was going to be.

The game isa large step forwards, but the nay sayers will never admit that and only focus on the things their misconceptions about the game to "prove" the game isn't what anet said it would be.
