The game is just real good. if someone have prob with bots,hacks etc then go play some single player games cuz all mmorpg have them anyway. Anet try real hard to expand the game even if its a real free one. You need a lot of time to see all the content and all classes. W v W is real nice and unigue. Last time i enjoy this type of wvw is in Daoc. So if you dont like the game and only focus on negative ones feel free to leave it for good.

Keep the nice work Anet

As a pretty well known fan of GW2, i was not impressed nor pleased with this update.

1. They added ascended amulets. That can only be bought with laurels. That can only be gotten ONCE per day. ONE. so 25 days for a single amulet. The itchy part? I have 6 characters that need that amulet. It'll take me months to get all the amulets i need.

Everyone screams 'But at least everyone else has a chance now!' and i'm fine with that. Thing is, you are supposed to play the game your way. If i cant log in for 3 days out the week, let me grind everything i need on the other days, like with Fracs. No, now you are compelled to log in daily just to get the one token. Pretty upset about that.

2. The 'living story' bullshit. Marketing.

EVENTS from GW2:

Lost Shores: Few days in that event.

Halloween: Week long event roughly.

Wintersday: 2week long event.

Flame and Frost: Couple events stretched out over months.

 

They have simply taken the content they have and stretched it over an insane amount of time, getting progressively worse. Same amount of content too. 'Its a developing story'- they scream. No, it isn't. Lie to someone else. Story is done, has been done for awhile, as with the rest of their content(in all mmo's) it is made ahead of time. I'd MUCH rather get a full storyline every 6 months.

My two cents.

 

EDIT: lets not go into the WvW fiasco, resetting months of hard work for all servers for no reason. 'It's to make better matchups!" Your current system did that just fine, would have taken half the time to even everyone out rather than let everyone go back to ROFLSTOMPING lower tier servers as we make our way back up the ladder.

The Deep Web is sca-ry.

It never fails that people on this site complain no mater the quality of the game. I am we'll aware of GW2's short comings but also recognize what a fin and truely unique game it is. You don't like events, well are quest hubs and walls of text that no one reads better? Do you think the whack-o-mold combat of nearly other game is more exciting than GW2's fast paced combat? We knew from nearly thee beginning that intended the end game to begin at level 1 yet many of you rushed to 80 then started screaming you have nothing to do.

My advice is try and find something that has the characteristics you are looking for. Something that will allow you to grind your life away until there too you will burn out. Of course it will be the games fault.

Freeloading mooches are the scourge of the gaming community.

Well I logged in today for the first time since right before Christmas. I had some fun for a bit.. Tried to spark up some conversation with people in just area shout chat, one person responded a few times other than that nothing. I dont understand why this game is so unsociable. More and more games are becoming like this.. Which is killing MMOs for me. I used to make friends in them.

GW2 is one of the worst yet for social interaction. I am thinking of returning to TERA I left  that game not because I didnt like it or even because i got bored. I left it due to RL issues that were going on at the time. By the time I was able to play again my friends were all amped over GW2.. now they are all just spread  out everwhere.

What I will say about GW2. Beautiful world, some fun gameplay, some good stories. but the unsocial people that play it are turning me off. As for this content patch. What does it matter if you dont make friends to play along with.

action combat is going to = less talking.. how do you have time to talk it up while dodging from that champion who will one shot you with anyone of its attacks? i found if people aren't engaged in combat most of the time you can get a conversation going.. it's not hard ot join a guild either.. i'm personally in 4 guilds and can always find at least a couple people chatting it up in guild chat.. honestly i'm such a slow leveler because i spend way to much of my time in game just talking instead of actually playing heh.. just because a game doesn't "require" social interaction for a lot of it doesn't mean people aren't willing to talk and have a conversation and help people out.

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

The people are not unsocial, just join a massive guild of guilds. Re map chat it's a common problem with all mmorgs it does my head in, , most are chatting away in guild chat and don't watch map chat, but do you notice there is at least no anti social morons swearing and being obnoxious in city chat compared to other games.

rpg/mmorg history: Dun Darach>Bloodwych>Bards Tale 1-3>Eye of the beholder > Might and Magic 2,3,5 > FFVII> Baldur's Gate 1, 2 > Planescape Torment >Morrowind > WOW (1000 hrs on main mage)> oblivion > LOTR (480 Hunter) > Rift (230 hours mage) > Guild Wars (1900hrs elementalist) Vanguard. > GW2(900 elementalist), Wildstar

Now playing GW2, AOW 3

This pretty much. Not to mention there are plenty of programs out there that guilds use to chat rather than typing. I know my guild rarely chats in game because we are in mumble. Other than that I answer questions in map chat when I catch one. I can imagine this is normal.

yea forgot to mention that one.. voice chat is much more widespread today than it was years ago and more people using that will also equate to less typing in chat

They are heading in a good direction, but I feel like they are focusing on too many aspects of the game at once and spreading their new content too thin. They honestly have to put in a significant change in the next quarter to keep their player base up. I'll still be playing, but I am already feeling my excitement since beta deplete

My problem is This !

We were told we would have a choice in what dailyes we do.

I only play wvw could care less about the rest.

Now i am forced to craft and run dungons to compleat the daily and the monthly.

Every time a developer says we are going to let you play the way you want to  I hear Hi I am here to lie to you.

Just want to clarify: There is no daily for completing jump puzzles. There is no monthly for completing jump puzzles either. So please edit that out of the article as it is misleading and not correct. You can also do the crafting daily in a few seconds crafting basic components. (ie: salt and pepper, ball of dough, bolts of cloth,ect) I would like to add that pretty much everything surrounding the daily short of crafting is stuff you would normally get just by playing the game. If you don't want to do the daily because it requires you to kill vets or dodge roll then you should probably just not play because you don't like the game. If you really want to do it quick the daily achievement can be completed easily in about 15 minutes.

Well i would stop playing long ago if i didnt use hacks to speed up things. 

 

And Anet is so damn slow with updates and fixes. Accouncing 2 months ago changes to come and yet not all are implemented.

The guy was simply talking about himself.He didn't even mention anyone else in particular. GW2 fans really need to stop getting so defensive. No wonder GW2 gets so much flak around here because fans are just way too touchy.

IMO many haters of gw2 wouldn't be haters if they had played the first guild wars, OR even if they did a little research before buying the game... Everyone that knew or read something about the game before it was released i'm pretty sure mostly of them are still enjoying the game because they knew what the game would be about :)  (my opinion)

I have only one problem NCSoft has proven they will cancel any MMO on a whim. They are the MMO killer and have zero interest in their players other than to make tons of cash.

 

If you play one of their games just be aware the home office only wants money not to give their players a fun experience.

Why won't people shut up about GW2 not having any endgame like it's a problem?

Do you miss endgame in any other games than MMOs? Did anyone ever miss endgame in Dragon Age or Darksiders? Are these games less enjoyable because they're over when you're finished with the storyline?

What I will say about GW2. Beautiful world, some fun gameplay, some good stories. but the unsocial people that play it are turning me off. As for this content patch. What does it matter if you dont make friends to play along with.

action combat is going to = less talking.. how do you have time to talk it up while dodging from that champion who will one shot you with anyone of its attacks? i found if people aren't engaged in combat most of the time you can get a conversation going.. it's not hard ot join a guild either.. i'm personally in 4 guilds and can always find at least a couple people chatting it up in guild chat.. honestly i'm such a slow leveler because i spend way to much of my time in game just talking instead of actually playing heh.. just because a game doesn't "require" social interaction for a lot of it doesn't mean people aren't willing to talk and have a conversation and help people out.

Thats what you would think... but if you've seen TERAs chats you'd wish action combat actually equalled less talking.

 

Everyone in TERA talks so much and gets so out of hand you actually need to turn the chat off. Lol.

 

Some people have developed their own sayings or become server wide names through the sheer extent of their mindless babble. People like Dragneel(starts religious arguments all the time), Di.Pro.Sky(Multiboxer/botter/BG afker who mocks everyone when he gets the best gear), Angel_Bunny(Is apparently a bunny) and Wolfy(wags his tail).

Unlike what the OP suggested, crafting, dodging and veteran killing achievements are really easy to get:

 

- Crafting achievement: Just craft any 10 low level items when you're near a crafting station and you are done within a minute. Should be easy if you gather a node now and then (which you have to do for the gathering achievement anyway).

 

- Dodging achievement: Find a mob that doesn't hit too hard but has a distinct tell for it's 'power' attack (the ones that have aoe attacks that are shown by a red circle on the ground are really easy to dodge). Stand near it and dodge it's 'power' attacks until your health gets low, then kill the mob and repeat on another. Done within 3 minutes if you pay attention or 5 if you're new at dodging.

 

- Veteran killing achievement: When you come across a veteran in the game world while playing the game, kill it, then wait for it to respawn and repeat, veterans and normal mobs in the game have a relative short respawn timer, so waiting for it to respawn is a lot quicker than trying to find 5 different ones while roaming the world. Done in 5 minutes.

 

I'll choose these achievements any day over the daily kill variety achievement that takes a lot longer to complete.
