I'd agree with the steady growth. I play on and off since launch and even now I log on and play, sometimes late at night est. time and all the servers are either full or high population. Sometimes the cities and starting zones do not reflect this, but if you head into the higher zones or Lion's Arch you will find many... I still at times get placed into overflow.

The server status is a flat out lie, they did this in TERA and SWTOR as well, I remember when my server was medium and there would be a queue for all maps in WvW and 160 16/16 games in SPvP.

 

Now if there's no queue on any map and around 30 16/16 games my server says full. Yeah, i'm sure it's full.

Umm no one even said anything negative or it was just a pre emptive damage control?

GW2 is in the same situation as F2P games in the sense, that they can do nothing but grow.  We are going to need to start pushing for other metrics if we are really interested in "how well" a game is doing.  If a sub game loses 5 players and sells 2 boxes it is shrinking, but if F2P or B2P games sell a box or a new account is created it is growing, there is no good way to really measure "loss" in non sub based games.  We can look at financials, but many of the companies are privately owned and don't have to report that info.  So as long as we feel the need to compare game populations for whatever reason, there isn't going to be a really good way to do this with B2P or F2P games.  

The main reason I said all that is mainly to point out that "growing" doesn't mean much if we don't really know what is gained vs. lost because really nothing (accounts) can't really go down or be lost.

Edit:  And just to be clear on this, I'm not trying to pick on GW2, it just happens to be the big news piece right now.  Really the issue I raise is universal for F2P and B2P games that don't offer any kinid of sub that can be canceled.  It will be perpetually growing because you can't (and there is no need to) "cancel."

Fortunately for you, GW2 goes by Concurrent users. Yea they sold 3mil boxes but it seems those concurrent users are increasing with the rise in people playing WvW and SPvP.

They never come right out and say it but it seems like that's the case.

This is not a game.

I think he's referring to the bazillion other articles where the GW2 team claims the game is doing well and everyone shits their pants over it (ie: "articles recently").  Honestly, I don't see the point.  The only AAA game I truly hated in years was TSW and I don't hope their team fails at everything they do, I just don't play it.  But if anyone asks how the combat is, well...

If you're going to try and fan the flame, at least read what the person you quoted obviously didn't.  "These articles recently".

And he was right, they are stirring up the discontent.  lol... Shoot... score.

Well if he's hating on haters before he sees any hate about this article. Then it's him who's already hating before the hate has even come. So he's right, the hate has already been stirred by him.


Somebody, somewhere has better skills as you have, more experience as you have, is smarter than you, has more friends as you do and can stay online longer. Just pray he's not out to get you.

No, I found it funny and responded in my own inimitable way. What I found funny and what Whitebeards was responding to is that, what is it doing in this thread? when nothing negative has been said? he clicked the wrong thread, pre-emptive strike? righteousness? we were right all along go suck on it HATERZ? so maybe you should think before jumping in but thats par for the course with GW2's highly strung fanbase, been doing it for years. Take my advice "Its only a game calm down and enjoy it"

Not really, you just explained what I know you attempted to correct, but what you actually didn't.  It was more about people jumping on him for being right because they didn't read his post.

Irony much, you saying I'm high-strung?  Maybe he is, but you both still read his post wrong and JUMPED.  And of course, he's more right as this continues.  I think it's funny too, at least we agree on that... sort of.

Btw, you spelled instigating wrong.  You chose to fight fire with fire, and now someone calls you on it and you get defensive.

I think there are some people that quit GW2 because they wanted to make a statement about something that they didn't like with the game.  I think those people are invariably forced to make negative comments any time that GW2 is spoke of in a positive light, otherwise their "stance" is belittled.  After all, the last thing a person wants to realize whilst they are stomping their feet and screaming at the sky, is that nobody is paying attention.

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

So he starts with Lol, uses the word haters in the first sentence and then goes on to say GW2 is great RAH RAH RAH GW2 is great RAH RAH RAH I'm better than you RAH RAH RAH and then ends by calling all who say anything against GW2 haters and I'm suppose to take him seriously? you really have lost the plot. It was a showboating post about how he's playing the #1 bestest game evar and we are all haters because this story proves the fans right, ner! I'm surprised he didn't call us Brah to top it off. GW2 fans make me laugh oh! shit already done that bit.

It would be impressive if this consistent steady growth allowed the game to exceed or even just match the launch population, but as it stands, 5 people in my 20 man guild have played in the last 3 months.

It was a showboating post about how he's playing the #1 bestest game evar and we are all haters because this story proves the fans right, ner! I'm surprised he didn't call us Brah to top it off. GW2 fans make me laugh oh! shit already done that bit. 

You know, you're recommended to report people, not flame them.  Right?  I just don't see the point in baiting someone who is already baiting people... then trying to bait me.

Have fun I guess.

Hey, at least we know how many people are playing eve.

What the hell does "consistent heavy growth" mean?

Is 1 more person playing than last week?
Or 10?
Or 1000?
Or 100,000?

There's no data behind it, its just a meaningless sound byte. Though I suspect if it was 100,000 they would be putting some player metrics data out.

Actually I think it rolls the other way. I think people discuss what they dislike about GW2 and some of the fans take offense. They feel the need to "correct" the person on the proper way to play the game or how their opinion doesn't matter. They make pointed comments on other styles of play calling them inferior. I think the fans feel "belittled" because people don't agree with them.

How many unique people log in per week

How many hours per week does the average player play

Done

If that is the case then one can easily argue that Eve is not the sandbox messiah many of you claim it is. The number of players logged in has not changed much in 3 years.

Ummm Eve hit an all time high earlier this month.......

It was promotional hype. If the overall player base was increasing at a dramatic rate they would have indicated those numbers.  A three percent increase in a few hundred players playing sPvP is a number in the tens..... Typical corporate spin. Of course it is only spin when you talk about WoW numbers or SWToR numbers.... At least WoW states an actual number and provides data on what constitutes that number.......

No, I found it funny and responded in my own inimitable way. What I found funny and what Whitebeards was responding to is that, what is it doing in this thread? when nothing negative has been said? he clicked the wrong thread, pre-emptive strike? righteousness? we were right all along go suck on it HATERZ? so maybe you should think before jumping in but thats par for the course with GW2's highly strung fanbase, been doing it for years. Take my advice "Its only a game calm down and enjoy it"  

Not really, you just explained what I know you attempted to correct, but what you actually didn't.  It was more about people jumping on him for being right because they didn't read his post.

Irony much, you saying I'm high-strung?  Maybe he is, but you both still read his post wrong and JUMPED.  And of course, he's more right as this continues.  I think it's funny too, at least we agree on that... sort of.

It was a showboating post about how he's playing the #1 bestest game evar and we are all haters because this story proves the fans right, ner! I'm surprised he didn't call us Brah to top it off. GW2 fans make me laugh oh! shit already done that bit. 

Hey relax there "Brah" and take your own advice. 

Try re-reading what I wrote.  Scratch that, ... I think you actually have had to have read it first in order for me to ask you to "re-read" it.  Nowhere do I say GW2 is great, it's the #1bestest, I'm better than you, nor do I imply anyone who says anything negative about the game is a hater.  That's just your own insecurity whispering in your ears.  I'm sorry if I riled you up so much.  Just relax and read next time, cool?
