its a good game until you run out of things to do. i started playing again recently to check out the wvw changes but it seems to have gotten worse. there are people that love it that have played since release, and more power to them.

I would recommend getting it as it is fairly cheap now I think, and the art work is amazing, and the leveling was fun for the first character. I just got very bored with it after that. the dungeons are terrible imo and the pvp is pretty mindless. it's basically 100% about the number of people around you. if you are in a big guild I guess it can be fun, but it's basically just about being in a huge ass zerg.

a good huge ass zerg is better than a pug huge ass zerg .. but that's like saying cat pee is better than dog pee, imo.

LFD tools are great for cramming people into content, but quality > quantity.
I am, usually on the sandbox .. more "hardcore" side of things, but I also do just want to have fun. So lighten up already :)

It's good for about a month of casual play.

This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

OP, is this a trick question? I mean you write that you have already played the game and did not have fun. It seems to me that you have answered your own question. The classes have differing abilities and strengths but the basics of play remain the same. I'd tell you to consider giving Tera a try (it's F2P now I think) based on what you wrote. GW2 is what it is and that won't change.

No it's not a trick question. I had heard that engineer was bad so maybe that was all but I wanted to know if I should get it or if you guys think a better game is coming. I also did try Tera but I hated how you can't move while attacking.

Imagine an MMO designed for the Facebook audience.  You know, people used to mindlessly planting a few hundred crops while they watch TV or avoid work.  If you think you're part of that audience, then you might like the game.  If not, then you might get a solid month of casual out of it.

imo, it is a waste of money, 80% or more is unplayable!

50% pvp/wvw (where it is very one sided, you enter and die almost straight away because most of the players are all out to kill you and very little friendlies to help)

20% dungeons (every patch they release make these harder and harder, they are unplayable in form except story or if your lucky enough to find other players (very rare) that know what there doing (almost impossible). Less and less people are posting messages looking for groups!

10% crafting (crafting items is a waste of time, the sale value will not make it viable)

The 20% that is playable is some of the pve (not all because there are times that you need help to kill things, and no other players are around to help). The rest is very easy to solo!

This is almost 100% unplayable but if you dont get bored easy then give it a go!

If they got ride of the retarded char nerfing where the lvl of your char is reduced based on where you are, you might be more inclined to do more of the pve (as you could go back and finish contnet that was no possible when you were that lvl), but this will never happen, neither will making the dungeons playable! Also drops in pve are rarely worth picking up (they did have it set to give better drops, but are now forcing you to buy items through the gem store to make better equipment!(a bit of corporate greed setting in))!

If you like moving while attacking, you could potentially love any of the classes in GW2 (other than the Engi obviously).

I would recommend GW2 to anyone who loves mmorpgs. It is totally worth the money.

However, if you only like mmos with heavy focus on holy trinity then it may not be for you.

I personally love this game and to me its the best mmo since WoW. Highly recommend it over anything else out there.

Like every other mmo out there GW2 also has room for improvements. No mmos are free of flaws but most of them have a lot more flaws than this one. In my very personal opinion.

 

OP, look for different reviews and gameplay videos, and compare different opinions with what you see. Then make a decision. If you let a forum decide for you you will end up playing a lot of garbage games because the majorty of people who decide for others are the haters and trolls. Normal people will advise to check the game, reviews, etc and a free trial if its available.

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

Ok you didn't say you thought the engi was bad, you said it was boring, a boring MMO experience. So, ignore me, ignore everyone else. Listen to yourself. You found the game boring, not the class, the game.

 

My advice, don't buy it. Based only on the fact that you found it boring. That's all the reason you need. At least not until you can get a trial key or something, then you could try out the thief to see if it was any better. I don't think it's fair for anyone to suggest you drop $60 to find that out.

 

And before anyone calls me a hater, I own and play GW2.

I've played many mmos and I disliked many of them and the most recent being WoW and Tera. The gameplay that I've enjoyed the concept of was Vindictus which had a very interactive gameplay and had a lot of potential but it wasn't really there. And i guess I should mention that I have in fact played GW2 before on a free weekend and beta in which I played Engineer and it was one of the most boring mmo experiences I've ever had. I come to you guys though wondering if it was just the class that was not meant for me because I see thief gameplay which looks pretty interesting, or if I should wait for a game like Black Desert to come out. Thank you.

 

If you didn't enjoy the game the first time you played it, you are not going to enjoy it now.

Great game, specially for casuals, but there is things to look forward even if you are hardcore. Great price for the amount of content you can get out of it. Game is not super special in any of its segments (except great questing through dynamic events), but its the best All-Around mmo today.

Just watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzFfO_yyxtI

Going off your post OP, you should enjoy GW2. However, you've already stated you've tried it and didn't like it. As described in the link above, the game does require a certain mentallity to enjoy, and the game does absolutely nothing to help players adopt that mentallity. Even worse, since the game tries to appeal to an outside audience it can even trick you into thinking it's an entirely different game (Which is common).

Essentially, and this isn't anything new to fans of the game, the game struggles to overcome a massive hurtle in MMOs atm. They try to overcome the WoW-mindset that is predominate in this genre. By this I mean the need for guided questing, the need for a gear grind, the need for a trinity, etc. etc. etc.

I will say this, though. Hating on the game seems to be popular atm, but this is hands down the best value you can get for the money (plus it's on sale). A 1 time buy that's an MMO, with 1000s of hours of content, more customization than almost every other MMO (champions online probably has it beat, but not by all that much).

- Just don't trust the default settings. The biggest problem (and strength) of this game is it offers a WIDE variety of gameplay. Just don't assume the default one is right for you.

PvP is not 50% of the game's content....... so that's completely false, despite your absolute worst experiences.  Even then, joining a guild for WvW or, you know, communicating with a team instead of running around like malfunctioning golems like I see most of the time I join a SPvP battle, works wonders.

20% dungeons (every patch they release make these harder and harder, they are unplayable in form except story or if your lucky enough to find other players (very rare) that know what there doing (almost impossible). Less and less people are posting messages looking for groups!

Have you tried http://www.gw2lfg.com?  Seriously, every single time I look at this site, the ratio of Explorable mode to Story mode isn't even remotely close.  In fact, I have a hard time finding groups for Story modes, anything else is easy.  You clearly have not visited this site though, going by your post.

And dungeons getting harder?  So?  They're hard sometimes, most of the time I can clear them with a group on the first try without anyone dropping.  That doesn't mean they're unplayable.

10% crafting (crafting items is a waste of time, the sale value will not make it viable)

This is the only one I agree with.  Crafting is almost entirely useless in this game (except for Cooking - Food buffs rule).

If they got ride of the retarded char nerfing where the lvl of your char is reduced based on where you are, you might be more inclined to do more of the pve (as you could go back and finish contnet that was no possible when you were that lvl), but this will never happen, neither will making the dungeons playable! Also drops in pve are rarely worth picking up (they did have it set to give better drops, but are now forcing you to buy items through the gem store to make better equipment!(a bit of corporate greed setting in))!

What items are you forced to buy in the Cash Shop?  And how is it corporate greed when you can pay for gems with in-game gold.  Seriously, GW2's Cash Shop was proven to be absolutely free if you put in the time over a year ago, I don't know why you're even attempting this angle.  Even character transfers, something that costs 25 bucks or more on WoW, is free on GW2.  You want to point out corporate greed, pointing at ANet is just a joke.

You're welcome to be upset about your personal experiences, but almost everything you posted is misleading and not factual.

As far as the amount of value and content you gain for your money it will be hard beat GW2. If you're looking for GW2 to replace your current MMO you'll be disappointed. It's more like a single player game with bots for other players that just run by and help clear an event then run off with not a word exchanged in the process. Play it like you would Skyrim.
