Hackers - any issues were user side. Even though GW2 now offer a few more options like mobile apps to log in.

Bots - have been drastically reduced as one can see with the reduction of number of items being offered in the trading post.

 

If you like wandering around and are fine with an action oriented combat instead of a static tank-healer-dps system, it is more than worth the box price.

If you want a world that's alive, try it out.  No matter what zone I go into, I always see "X event is up at X waypoint". I get there and there are quite a few people there.  I had not experienced that in a very long time.

It is still going on like that even after this many months of release.

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.

actually i can't do an alt in GW2... it was boring even while i was lvling my main... i reached lvl 80 in a month and uninstalled ;)

I'm not sure if I admire or laugh at people that play something for like 100 hours while being bored.

Generally a boring game doesn't last 5 minutes in my hard drive.

Most poeple expect that for leveling in an mmo, and expect it to change when they get to max level.  So him playing that way it in no way odd.   It is what MMO's have done to us over the years.  Its always "its gets better after # level, you just didn't get to that level to have fun".

But it does change, depending on where you start from. In Asuran, Sylvari and Norn you are helping out. In Human and Charr starting areas it is more or less littl battlefields around. Then you get up to Orr which is one big battlefield. They are totally different in feel and they do change.

 

It seems people keep playing expecting things to morph into something more they want out of a game. If you don't like it in the first hour, you probably won't like the longer you play.

people are so used to the i need to get to x level till the good stuff starts mentallity.. i agree though if GW2 didn't pull you from the first few zones you probably won't care for it overall.. the first time i ran through one of the very large citys it was a sight to behold the game just has an amazing art direction. Classes vary as some I found fun others not so much.. i really don't see the pull people have towards warriors as i find them the most boring class in the game. But once you get 60 and open up your grandmaster traits its nice how many types of builds you can put together on most classes that completely changes how they play.. lots of fun.. messing with builds was one reason i stuck with Rift for so long and although it feels a lot more limited in GW2 after 60 you do really get a lot of options per class in my experience

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

Guess that is why the wet dream of MMORPGs "veterans" always have a problem to attract many people.

Having to play for hundreds of hours to reach the good stuff when you are paying to have fun. I've some adjectives for that, none of them nice.

And when and if you finally reach the good stuff you realize that its just more of the same of old stuff but it takes even longer. All the while paying 15/month+expansions. Thats pretty much summary of "old school" games.

No thanks, been there done that.

game is also real

sorry to interrupt, but seems it on Beta again.

or it just my luck and I'm getting in in worst moments, but lately really nothing works for me: or I find bugs, broken events, non-active dungeon or quest NPC, or I lag, or dc, or I can't even get in (like today).

so IMO better to wait until they finish test part and game can, at least, run well.

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

Definitely worth it. There probably is no other mmo currently released which gives you so much for the money. The question remains whether you will like what it offers or not.

I am not going to bother going through everyone's oppinions. I will just add mine. As of late there have been A LOT of new players coming to the game etc. what the problem is there isnt much but WvW to do after 80 which is why you see more and more people coming to the game while they reach the end youll see them walk out the backdoor and the content at the front to greet another customer. To me it IS worth it because of updates and future content etc. can be added and improved upon you get your moneys worth and if it cashes in on some future content you are there with it. give it a shot!

Hackers: people will try to hack your account. 99.9% of accounts hacked are because people are sloppy and use the same E-mail and password combination all over the place. Use a unique E-mail and a unique strong password, keep your passord to yourself, use decent software to protect your computer, and the odds of getting hacked are next to none.

Bots: I haven't seen a bot in a long time. They had a big cleaning operation a couple of months ago, and they got a whole lot of them, probablr not 99.9% percent, but a lot. Thousands of accounts got banned for botting, they have software in place to automatically detect bots and it works.

Population is less than at launch, no surprise there, but it's nowhere near the wasteland some claim it is.

Bugs aside GW2 is the best MMO i have played in years.

It is fairly balanced and appeals to several categories: PvE (in small part), sPvP (instanced PvP skirmish), Zerg vs Zerg (WvWvW) and small scale gorup combat (WvWvW, but you have to organize a small squad to really enjoy it like this).

I WvW if you are lucky and have some guildmates or server friends to run 10 ppl squad and capture objectives and battle other small to medium sized group the game is very fun and the battles are very nice.

The only thing at the moment keeping me for 100% enjoyment is their bug with models for players and NPCs dissapearing randomly (and their lack of ideas how to fix it) and low reward for support players like myself (being in the back buffing and healing, basically playin 90% support, has little reward in terms of medals).

My advice is to try it out on a friend's account or if you have the money to spare, buy it; it is free to play once you buy it and it will keep you busy a long time :)

If you like it in the first hour though, you will like it the longer you play and understand the game since it is just building on top of the basic systems present from the beggining.

Hackers: people will try to hack your account. 99.9% of accounts hacked are because people are sloppy and use the same E-mail and password combination all over the place. Use a unique E-mail and a unique strong password, keep your passord to yourself, use decent software to protect your computer, and the odds of getting hacked are next to none.

Bots: I haven't seen a bot in a long time. They had a big cleaning operation a couple of months ago, and they got a whole lot of them, probablr not 99.9% percent, but a lot. Thousands of accounts got banned for botting, they have software in place to automatically detect bots and it works.

Population is less than at launch, no surprise there, but it's nowhere near the wasteland some claim it is.

True that.

I'm on one of the European servers with the  highest population (Gandara), and I don't remember the last time I saw a bot. 3 months ago, places like the newbie areas, Orr and Frostgorge were full of bots following each other and killing everything in sight, I have seen none recently even in the old bot hotspots.

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.

 If you are looking to avoid games with bots/hackers, you might not find many games to play.  You will have to take a risk or avoid the game.  Why not take the risk?

As of late there have been A LOT of new players coming to the game etc. what the problem is there isnt much but WvW to do after 80 which is why you see more and more people coming to the game while they reach the end youll see them walk out the backdoor and the content at the front to greet another customer. To me it IS worth it because of updates and future content etc. can be added and improved upon you get your moneys worth and if it cashes in on some future content you are there with it. give it a shot!

I have to agree that there has been an influx of newer players. I am constantly seeing "noob" questions being asked in map chat in queensdale. It's really neat to see that the responses are actually useful and not trolls.

It's going to be really interesting to see how much Flame and Frost ramps up in terms of living story. If it turns out to be unique and interesting content, they will extend the overall life of the game. Asheron's Call 1 has run on monthly content updates for over a decade now, and some of my most memorable moments in mmos came from unexpected twists in the plot lines Turbine came up with. I hope ANet can capture some of that magic with their living story system. That alone could be worth the price of admission.

Cheers to that my good man. They are sitting on top of some good concepts and ideas we just have to wait and see what they turn up to be. For now I'll run my little growing guild and wait and see.
