OP  3/31/13 8:43:14 PM#1

I'm not exactly sure what happened, but I had been playing this game as a nightly dessert to my SWTOR gaming sessions.  Suddenly,  one particular day about two weeks ago, something hit me.  I'm not sure what it was exactly, but I think something had changed in the angle I was viewing this game.  Rather hard to describe exactly, but something just clicked.  I think the problem with a lot of our perceptions comes from the way that the industry and media like to pigeon-hole these games into a certain genre/category/type (FPS, MMO, etc. etc.) We've become so entrenched in what those type of games mean to us and the way in which we play them that we have become conditioned to what we find enjoyment out of. 

Anyways, whatever this change in my view is, I've come to accept it.   In this last week I've had some of the best MMORPG playtimes that I have had in quite some time.  Found incredibly nice, mature individuals to play with.  Reminded me of back in the old days.  Funny, what I had been looking for was sitting right there all this time.  I just needed a little time to form my own opinion.

In short, I am having an absolutely great time playing this little gem of a game.

Got my Elementalist up to level 80.  Bought an additional character slot and created a Ranger (which I find incredibly entertaining for some reason; odd because I don't tend to play ranged classes).  Been popping on my 80 Warrior a bit, plan on getting my Mesmer to higher levels.  So much to do but so much fun in doing it.

SWTOR's expansion is coming out in a week or so (which I preordered), but something tells me I'll be busy with GW2.

Hmm.. well it's not April 1st, so I'm happy to hear you're enjoying the game again for the first time. lol  It's not perfect and I'm taking a break right now to try some other games with a good friend, but GW2 has never been a disappointment to me.

feels very much like an april fools joke to me:P lol if not glad you are having fun OP i know we have had plenty of arguments in the past:)

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

Didn't even think of the April fool's angle.

True and honest post.

Basically, I was just trying to say if a game doesn't work for you the first time around, don't necessarily write it off.

Additionally, thanking the community.  If it wasn't for you guys, I'm not sure if I would have come around so quickly.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, I had a very similar experience with GW2.

I posted my thoughts here.

http://www.mmorpg.com/gamelist.cfm/game/473/view/forums/thread/379861/Worth-a-2nd-look.html

 

Although since this post, I've changed from Guardian to Mesmer. I love this class.

To me, it's on par with the overall enjoyment level I had when I played a Bureaucrat in Anarchy Online. (Actually, there are a few similarites in their class concepts)

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

If they keep updating the live world and adding content thats as creative as April fools. I dont think GW2 will do just fine. Still needs some work but its going in the right direction. Dungeons need some real work, sick of the zerg tatics and training through trash mobs.

You can't zerg dungeons anymore.

Zergs in dungeons were fixed in January - don't know what dungeons you have been running.......

"Bro, do your even fractal?"
Recommends: Guild Wars 2, Dark Souls, Mount&Blade: Warband, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

Yes, there are still speed runs and "preferred" comps. But I think this poster was referring to the early issues where players would make continuous suicide runs against the bosses and quickly rez before the boss reset.

I stopped playing because of culling and dungeon zergs. I only came back a few weeks ago when I read culling was done. If dungeon zergs are fixed then I will start doing dungeon runs again =-) Thats good news.

EDIT: How did they fix that?

I'm glad you're having fun and more importantly it seems like you're taking each game for what they offer and enjoying that.  I think that's the key to really getting past all the other hoopla.

I feel like we're very stuck on terms in this genre, and gaming in general.  We worry if a game meets the definition of an mmo, or any other number of categories or terms as you put it.

Enjoy the TOR expac too.

I think a mind wipe so people could play an mmo like it was their first time again, would be easier to build than a new mmo people here would actually like. - DamonVile

Yeah, it's called addiction. Probably your brain gave up refusing to do pointless repetitive tasks and decided to spill some endorphines to ease the pain.

I played GW2 at launch, tried 5 different professions, got frustrated and put it aside, ostensibly for good.  Oddly enough, a debate here on the merits of tab-targeting vs. action combat led me to dust off the game and give it a shot, now that I had discovered the joys of actiony gameplay (thanks to DCUO).  I went with Guardian, set a goal of not worrying about perfect builds and simply learning the game through trial and error, and I've been having a lot of fun.  it's not perfect and I still believe GW2's greatest contribution to the genre will be its business model and rewarding cooperation rather than competition in PvE.  However, for the first time in a long time of playing fantasy MMOs, I really do feel like I'm embarking on an adventure after logging in, rather than concerning myself with finding loot, clearing my questlog, and waiting to level.

You cannot respawn while teammates are still in combat.

So you either have to rez teammates or wipe.  There is no more "die and rush back to the fight."

Well... you can zerg Citadel of Fire path 1... but thats it. did Arath path 1 this weekend and that was far from zergy.

Yes, there are still speed runs and "preferred" comps. But I think this poster was referring to the early issues where players would make continuous suicide runs against the bosses and quickly rez before the boss reset.

 

I stopped playing because of culling and dungeon zergs. I only came back a few weeks ago when I read culling was done. If dungeon zergs are fixed then I will start doing dungeon runs again =-) Thats good news.

EDIT: How did they fix that? 

Patch notes are your friend......

(((eye roll))) world is full of rude people. How dare I ask a question on a forum, the nerve lol. 

you can no longer path to a waypoint while your party is engaged in combat.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.
