I didn't read all the posts but I can tell you right now why it's still thriving:

Because people find it fun to play. Maybe not you or everyone, but enough that it makes it sustainable. Simple as that really.

I logged in last night to say hi to some people that I met in-game. It was a really low amount of players everywhere. What the the hell is everyone doing since there is no endgame?

I installed Age of Conan again a couple of days ago and started to level an Assassin and when I got to the main city I saw like 100 times more players than in all cities combined in GW2 lol.

 

Well maybe people are playing the game instead of standing around in the cities ;-)

Your siggy....

 

I quit Guildwars 2 for now im fed up with empty world:(...

 

I think the main point was him asking sarcastically how it was thriving since for him it seemed empty to him.. which your signature actually is kind of saying. So... your actually kind of supporting his thread in a way while also attacking him... which is a bit weird.

Thank you I thought the same thing. I don't get the whole empty world, every other MMO I played has maybe a hand full of people per zone.

This is the exact reason as why I quit GW2 and went back to the dreadful WoW. NO matter when, where, and what happens, you can always find people logged in on WoW. So basically it's more of a leaning towards Social gaming over repetitive gameplay.

On US server Tarnished Coast there are people EVERYWHERE. And it is very social, so I don;t know what you expect. If you aren't social beyond being forced to be grouped for dungeons, then NO game is social for you.

I was replying to a person that said MMOs should focus on endgame content and I asked if that is instances.

I asked that because apparently games like GW1, Neverwinter, Dragon Nest, Vindictus, etc, aren't MMORPGs since they don't have a shared Open World and it is all instances.

 

After reading forums for years, you should certainly know the answer.

"Content" is "what I want". If they're putting in lots of stuff, but not for you--they aren't putting anything in.

We see it from current players plenty often, too.

Very true.

Heh.  I played WoW for 5 years, maybe it's different now, but on all of the servers I played on, the experience of meeting people outside of cities was about the same as GW2.  WoW cities were packed, zones were practically empty.  A handful of people questing.  It's no different.  In fact, I see more people in zones in GW2 than I saw in WoW usually, just not late at night.

Gotta say, it's pretty pointless (to me) to go back to a game where other people in a zone are competition.  Once I enjoyed the tagless mob system of GW2, every other game fails to keep up.

Nice avatar though, 40k rocks!

He refers to WoW as Social gaming.  I myself am proof it's not.  I played for nearly two years before really talking to anyone at all or joining a guild.  WoW never, ever encouraged you to talk to anyone.  Why should you?  Because if you join the person running around the same zone, he can't steal your mobs?  That's not a reason to socialize, that's a reason to be paranoid and feel forced to group.

I don't get the crafting hate.

I thought gw2s crafting was really good for a themepark. At least the stuff you craft is useful, no churning out a ton of junk you have to vend before you can make something semi useful that gets replaced by dungeon drops anyway.

I've seen better crafting, but that was in sandbox games like eve.

Compared to wow, gw2s crafting is good.

They don't like it because you can't make money from it, since you can sell the materials for more than the cost of the item crafted.

At least until you can craft max level stuff.

Currently playing: GW2
Cooperative (semi cooperative)board games you should check: Pandemic, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Eldritch Horror, Descent 2.0,Level 7 Omega Protocol, Last Night on Earth

Well that's like crafting in every other themepark.

At least you can wear the stuff you craft, or eat the food or whatever in gw2. No churning out 100 pairs of white quality chainmail boots just to vend them at a loss.

You were playing it wrong...    Most people would just group with that person and share the mobs.

This is not true.  I've been playing WoW since release, and i still play it, and the starter zones are just as populated as in any MMO (post-launch period).  There wasn't people everywhere in leveling zones.  Do you remember all the complaints from people during Cataclysm?  People were complaining because the zones felt dead and so they were saying "everyone is in Org", "WoW is a lobby game!", etc..

WoW's zones used to be less populated than they are now, and still are to some extent, but that's why blizzard implemented cross-realm technology in MoP, because their zones were less populated while leveling, due to the game being 8 years old and the majority being at max level.  This is what GW2 is currently like.  Everyone who still plays is at lvl 80, and making alts or doing something else.  Go play Swtor, because it's the same thing there.

My Google skills aren't helping.

Communication was lost July '12.

He stopped communicating because the marketing is over, the game is out and it is selling.   That is not at all uncommon in the industry; you hear a lot from certain people leading up to a game's release and then you never hear from them again until the next game is being hyped.

 

He still works at ArenaNet according to his LinkedIn profile.  Most of the folks in the industry do a VERY good job of keeping their profile up to date, in fact we often know about job changes because of LinkedIn days before there is any official announcement.

Due to the stupid decision to make the whole leveling experience a group based activity, a low population renders the game unplayable.

The only way around it is to go to lower level zones and grind it out there which is bad design IMHO.

 

Which game are you talking about?

Obviously it is not GW2! I levelled 2 characters to max level without grouping even once. Did NOT take any longer than my first where I grouped a lot.

Sure, for the last and final personal story mission you need a group but once you get there you have been max. level for a while.

I am not the greatest GW2 fan, but you need to aim your guns at some valid points of critique, otherwise your misinformation come out as blatant lies.

 

 

Yes you can solo if you have to but since it is clearly designed for groups of people to do them, it is depressing to them by yourself in an empty area.

I am all for group focused content at max level but the leveling portion of the game was very poorly done and downright boring as shit.

Don't confuse your personal feelings with what everyone thinks, please. And most events except the group ones were clearly designed with both the solo person and the group of persons in mind.

Many here feel that GW2 has one of the best, if not the best leveling experience of all theme park MMORPGs.

My computer is better than yours.
