I'm thinking about getting Gw2 but I'm not sure if I should after reading about hackers and problems with bots? Have the issues with hackers and bots been fixed yet or are there still problems? What is the population like? are the servers and low level areas still busy? I'd just like to get some info before buying the game :)

There are more hackers and bots in other games. People always complain and exaggerate the issue. I have seen one or 2 bots in a month and they get reported.

 

GW2 is a B2P game. buy it and try it. The game still has a large following.

I haven't seen any hackers or bots, that may be a problem at higher levels; I couldn't tell you.

What I can tell you is that you should give GW2 a try if you haven't already.  Choose a highly populated server and create your characters there.  It's been my experience that the low level areas are still very populated, especially evenings and weekends. The middle level areas (Level 35+) are not as populated.

I play on Borlis Pass, as a reference, and I don't believe it is even one of the most populated servers.

Hacking is very sparse now. Bots are seldom seen, though still exist. Population is growing and lots of friendly players around. Probably the best value I've gotten from a game. :)

Every MMO is going to have its fair share of bots and hackers, but ive never found it noticable at all. 

 

Population seems fine, stick to the Human leveling areas, as their population seems to be the best (you can play another race and just go to the human areas to level).  The way leveling works is you scale down to a level aproximately apropiate for the area you are in, you keep all your skills and traits though.  You can still level up, and the XP rewards from events, hearts and kills scales to aproximately your "real" level, gear drops do too.  It's still optimal to go to apropriately leveled areas, you get more xp, but its still very viable to level in lower areas. 

 

for $60, you're going to get ALOT more entertainment for your money than you would from your average FPS.

I have more than gotten my $60 worth of enjoyment out of the game so far. I am a severe altoholic, so I have yet to reach 80 on anyone, I pretty much spend all my time bouncing between about 4 characters. I have to say, that this is the first time in a mmo where I don't feel like I am missing out on anything by not having a "main" at the max level. It's a refreshing change of pace.

I like TERA but it is not GW2. Once you do one character - why even do any alts in TERA? They all go through the same areas/quests and have to grind the same mobs. Also, the community in the game is severly childish and idiotic. That is the biggest turn off for TERA right now.

Always wise to check on things first. Bots and hackers are significantly less in this game than others. You hardly hear of them being an issue. Populations are still high and according to ANet have been slowly increasing over the past 6+ weeks. This game is well worth buying in my opinion. Plus, with no subscription and no pay to win you simply can't go wrong.

I saw more bots in GW1 than I do in GW2. The reason they`re more noticable sometimes in GW2 is because you have the global trading post so everyone sees if they`re deflating prices, not just 1 server. However they haven`t been since the big bot ban in January.

I definitely think it`s more than worth the $60.

Depends what you like in a game. A lot of people enjoy it.  

In terms of polish, aesthetics and general fluff (not in a derogatory sense, I mean the map discovery, jump quests etc) I would say it is one of the best games out there.  

In terms of gameplay, levelling and customization it is mediocre and I found it became very tedious very quickly.   

IMO it is also vastly inferior to GW1.

Logic, reason and fact do not supersede human nature. Ignorance reigns without justice.

2/20/13 9:23:37 AM#12

 

The game is worth the price of entry by leaps and bounds.  Just don't expect it to be something to keep you interested for years on end.  Very few games are as polished or have the amount of attention to detail as Guild Wars 2.  From watching grass and bushes rustle as you walk over them, to actually simulating your character's feet on theground in terms of elevation with hills or even steps.

You should do some research on classes and pick one that suits your playstyle.  Elementalists, for example, can have upwards of 50+ skills at their disposal at any time.  Some melee classes are stuck to about 15 and have intricate combos that flow into each other for optimal effect.  Builds are also important and go hand in hand with runes in the armor, sigils in the weapons and the food buffs that you eat (such as food or sigils that steal life on critical hit and you increasing your critical hit to something like 80% to make the most of it or something as an example).

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

after eq1,  7 years of wow and some months in rift, eve, warhammer, swtor, i played gw2 for about 3 months. i got bored to death. i liked gw1 much more. i dont say its a bad game but not as good as most expected to be, including me.

now i m paying TERA (as free user) and i can say its way better than gw2.

So, my opinion is that you should try TERA first (nothing to loose as it is free) and if you dont like it try gw2.

As I said - with TERA, once you do one character, all the others are the same. There is no change in starting area for the different Races. The download is huge and tedious compared to GW2 download (it took me 15 hrs to download TERA) 4 hrs to download GW2 (I have the Deluxe Electronic edition). ALso I find the grind in TERA to be ridiculous and also there are people waiting for certain mobs to spawn, it advances the storyline. THe storyline of the game is 2ndary to the grind and gets lost in the grind and hard to follow.

 

I would say try GW2 first, TERA second.

 

One cannot compare GW1 and GW2. Even though they are in the same area and lore they are different games. A.Net learned what NOT to do in GW1 and tried to apply it to GW2 - sometimes they suceeded sometimes they did not,

Thanks for all the replies guys :)

I did try and buy Tera when it got first released and also played beta, I really enjoyed it at the time but it got a bit repetative after a couple of months.

After reading your replies and watching some review videos I think I'll prob. give it a try :D

game is also real

2/20/13 10:04:27 AM#17

I don't think GW2 is completely fail game, but it sort of boring after like 3 months of playing (for many people).

I found GW2 has way less content than GW1, so was very disappointed about.

TBH I would rather buy it when more content will be added (if it will be the case) or when game will stabilize in one direction (and not taking new after like every major update, it not much about new content, they add some but not that many, but about game policy concern loot, items etc), when community will be created (not people in and out), also depending of how said community will be.

I mean if you can't be bothered about spend 60$, sure do: BOTs are banned fast, don't know about hackers, seems it's not game but I-net issue, gold sellers are also fast eliminated, so you don't have to worry about, IMO.

If you think you need more value for 60$, then wait till GW2 takes changes or look for anything else coming out.

try before buy, even if it's a game to avoid bad surprises.
Worst surprises for me: Aion, GW2

unless you are counting all gw1 expansions gw2 has vastly more content then gw1..gw2 feature for feature has more content than pretty much any themepark ever launched with..what I see a lot though is people don't like certain aspects of the game so they dismiss that part of the game completely

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.

You mean the Tera with its boring class sytem, only one weapon per class, only one starter area, a quest system so bad that it makes WoW's quests look like they were written by Tolkien himself, ugly Asian style mobs, terrible Asian style grinding, and combat that roots you in place as soon as you use an ability? Not to mention a community even worse than WoW's "Barrens chat"?

No thanks. Tera is actually a good example of why GW2 is worth its purchase price.

Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2

Got a refund: Archeage. First refund since I started MMOs.

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.
