I've heard alot of whining on this forum on GW2 and how disappointing it was after 1 month. This is how it works with all mmorpgs, people rush through the game and only think about reaching max level and complete all quests, get the best gear as fast they can. The problem lies with the player not the game. I still have fun in GW2, i don't have World completion only 35% and 6 alts. If you are bored with a game, play another game and then in a few weeks/months you will eventually come back to the old game and enjoy it. Please stop blame the games, blame yourselves.
I didn't rush to 80 nor did I rush to get the best gear. I'm just losing intreset. GW2 has tremendous potential and is a good game, combat is fun and the lore is pretty good. GW2 has a lot of great concepts but they didn't finish em to it's full potential.
Home instance was a let down, your race personal story was like a teaser used in betas and is broken up bits and pieces if you do it at level, cross profession combos are sorta a pain to pull off as both have to time their skills right which is just too much hassle (knowing what professions can do what, knowing what combo field is there, knowing which of your skills will do a useful combo are just a bit overboard in calculation), major DEs are a tremoundous let down when your in a zerg enviroment or how aggrivating it is when champions will 1-2 shot you no matter how well one can dodge not to mention it's very static.
Then there is the whole repairs debate and how dungeons are just not worth the repair cost nor about the ridiculous amount of grinding it takes for legendary iterms nor how DRs are a slap in the face to people who want to work on their legendary items.
A week ago I had written off ESO as a "meh" MMO who are trying to cash in on an IP but from what I hear from reviewers is that ESO is what GW2 lacks in. Real exploration, variety of quests that are not kill this or gather that, real tactical teamwork combination, a real story. I jsut hope that they will do player housing
I don't understand. You basicly discribed the features that GW2 is best in (Exploration and a real story) and then procede to say it's what GW2 lacks in ....
People aren't whining because they rushed through content but are seeing the game for what it truely is and the "oooo shiney" effect is wearing off. GW2 is still a value as one can play whenever they feel like and a great game for inbetween times of patches or games.
From what I listened to the preview from OP's link audio, it seems like ESO is trying to be Skyrim in multiplayer game, and try to fulfill what GW2 lack in, and this is a good thing. I love Elder Scroll games, also I like GW2 and I know GW2 has a great potential but it lacks a lot of great things that I wish it should be in the game right now.
They have got a LOT of work still to do if they want it to be like Skyrim online. They are closer than they were, but still more like WoW than TES.
