I still enjoy the game myself, I go on binges playing it constantly. I take breaks though every now and then, so that helps me keep wanting to play it every now and then.  I think the combat really helps with the game popularity, the B2P model is also very casual and inviting to people since you don't have to cancel a sub, or start a sub again.

Though I do wish they would update some of the weapon skills, or at least give us some different options on the skills, like an offensive, defensive, and support set for each weapon.

The more I'm around the forums on this site, the more bitter I become.

Bottom line... Apparently there are quite a few people that do not share your opinion of Guild Wars 2 and really enjoy playing the game. I know, shocking.

GW2 gets most hits because they release new stuff every 2 weeks. Simple as that.

Oh and because it's probably the second most popular MMO in the west currently, and WoW players generally don't frequent MMORPG.com.

I like  GW2  because it's something new ... never done before, the mechanic feels fresher then most mmorpgs 

SWTOR is just old mechanics and nothing new  not to mention their F2P model sucks

SWTOR definitely shows how not to run a free to play game. It is also just all around clunky. If a game can't get combat feeling good it is never going to be all that popular.

There are two universal facts. GW2 is the best mmo and Justin Bieber the best pop singer. Everyone knows that the only thing that matters is the number of unique hits.

My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

It isn't that good, what am I missing?

I thought swtor was the best mmo of the year.

If you don't know then pointless trying to convert you... As for swtor that game for me was pants and I will never log back into that game again.

Attention does not equal population swell, TOR got a lot of attention as well after its release mostly because the complaints about the game were swelling the forums. Much of that is also true with GW2.

It cannot even compete with EVE, numbers even say SWTOR is making more revenue than GW2 right now.

Because many people are tired of the linear quest hub design.  We played WoW long enough that we don't need to play it again.  I am not forced down a corridor of mind numbing quests in GW2 unlike every other game out there.

What you mean cannot compete with EVE numbers?

Not only GW2 has more players than EVE, in terms of revenue GW2 did in 1 year what EVE did in 6 or 7 years.

http://techcrunch.com/2012/02/21/eve-online-saw-66m-in-revenue-last-year-mulls-ipo/

"Revenue has been growing too, at a compound annual growth rate of 53 percent, bringing in total revenue of $300 million over the game’s lifetime. As for profits, CCP would only say that it has “very healthy margins” — a claim backed up by the fact that it has grown to more than 450 employees despite only raising $3 million in seed funding."

GW2 socialist.

10/02/13 2:34:40 PM#75
If no one's said it already, I think it's probably because of the constant patches and story updates.  I come here often myself just to see what's new in case I don't have time to find out in-game.  Other than that, it's hard to deny that GW2 is one of the more popular MMO's in years, and one of the few that didn't slip off the radar a month after release (probably because of said updates).

Now you have made the fatal troll + hater mistake in this post and tried using facts ...which are bullshit . So now we don't care about your opinion  from your first post and we also know you're full of it from your second

Yeah but it also doesn't mean worst either.

It's very difficutl to swallow the idea of a small minority decrying something and saying to the large majority "why do you like it, it's bad?!?!?!".

Well, if someone likes it, it's good. period. The criteria might be different than something the minority considers good/bad but there it is.

Ultimately the guy with the "apple pie" response is pretty much "right on".

MMORPG hits mean nothing.  WoW for example is not even in the Top 10, that should tell you something.  On this site, the most recent MMO is the most popular.  

Although GW2 was the most popular game on this site in the last year.  FFXIV was the most popular game on this site for the last 6 months, 1 month, week and today.  The next big hyped MMO will take FFXIV's place eventually and the cycle continues.

On sites like Raptr, which track hours played on MMOs.  GW2 is ranked 4th in terms of hours played (behind, FFXIV, WoW, Rift) based on last month of data.
