Most MMOs are fairly average these days, and this one is better than average and did many things well despite your tirade against it.

2) I, on the contrary to you, would advise people to buy it as the game offers its share of fun for the money invested.

Funny how you believed all the pre-release propaganda though... I mean, do the MMO crowd still believe in sales speech and PR stuff these days? Really? Of course everyone's game is the best and the "next-gen-messiah-wowkiller-unique MMO". Nah... They are just games, fun and all till they aren't any more.

If you're saying you played GW2 for 1 month then it seems it was a good investment.

They purposefully lied many, many times before the game came out.

Why would anyone support a developer knowing they are deceitful?

 

Because most people that play video games dont sit there and read every forum post or "study" every detail of the game before they buy it.  They see it and pull up maybe a trailer and go wow that is cool, i will buy it and check it out.

its way better than some game that havent come out but already box sell + $15 amonth+ cash shop. or a game that take people money and fail and remake to ...take another $59.99 from people + sub.

just look at $59.99 like a console game and you get tons of thing and update. from GW2. so even if it just an average game it still deserve on the top, and the game isnt bad.

Also Final Fantasy 14 rating went down pretty suspiciously.

IMO that game should just remain number 1 for now.

The games used to be designed for the long term haul or to keep people paying as you put it but look at the MMORPG releases from the past several years. The design philosophy changed. Development teams figured out that they couldn't keep up with the demands of the PVE content locusts or compete to keep players with the hype for the next big release on everyone's calender. It became more profitable to rake in big launch day sales with a subscription plan for the first few months to milk people for every dime they could and then turn the game into a free to play title with cash shop. No one expects you to stay and its cheaper and more profitable to put a game together that way. There has not been a game released with a real and substantive "endgame" feature set in years. Come visit, play through the content, go on to the next big release, and maybe come back for a month if they release an expansion. The old days are sadly gone...

Blizzard just linked a new page on their main site listing all the mind-boggling stats about WoW.  Player's vote for the best with their money and actions, and well no other game I bet comes even within 50% of the stats listed on that page lol.

OP,  you are just saying that about GW2 because you were banned for verbally abusing players in chat. After a couple of months of dwelling on your permanent ban, now all of a sudden u hate GW2 when previously you said:

Nice try. Don't be so butt hurt, it's just a game.

I don't play it anymore, haven't in about 6 months now, but Guild Wars 2 is the best game that has come out in the past 5 years or so. So yes, I do think it deserves to be in the number one spot.

Every other game that has released has been pretty worthless. It's just lack of competition OP.

I'm not permanently banned, my mistake.

But I returned to the game and could not find anything fun to do anymore and the new marionette living story event was also a huge fail. I waited for 2 hours for me and a huge zerg to be defeated in 5 minutes by a very buggy boss and got disconnected a lot. The quality of their updates are extremely low.

I tried all 5 different lanes of groups for this event, all disconnected me and the whole group.

Anyone that bothers to look over your 13 previous posts will see you admit to getting banned from the game. So I am not sure what exactly your thread is trying to accomplish.

Personally I got greater value than the price I paid for it. I have primarily moved on to other games, but occasionally I fire it up at no cost and the population on the servers continues to be healthy when I play.

Right now speculating that there will be a "GW2 killer" in 2014 is just as useful as the thousands of "WoW killer" posts over the years. Until proven it is all hype and rhetoric. GW2 is a profitable game as was GW. The model has been very successful and I expect more to move to their model in the future.

So you may not get it, but apparently plenty of other gamers do. To each their own.

Also, I don't know how Anet can continue claiming they are the "fastest selling mmo"

They have 3 million now in 2 years when cataclysm sold over 3 million in just the first 24 hours alone.

I'm a little curious how you know that the events are buggy and glitchy when you forgot about this game's existance 15 months ago?

GW2 lasted a month ( at least ) and people rage about it being too short.

Doesn't make a lot of sense to me. 

Because an mmo is typically suppose to hold your attention for years to come. Games like WoW have done that.

After less than one month of gw2 I completely forgot this game even existed.

GW2, like any other MMO listed on this site, is intended to keep someone who enjoys its style of play interested for a long time.

And it's doing just that, for a lot of people.

Clearly you're not counted among them.

Okay.... and... so what? 

No game is going to be for "everyone".... you included.

So what, exactly is your point? That GW2 doesn't deserve good ratings or the praise it's received... because you don't enjoy it?

 

My philosophy on MMORPGs:

Leveling is what happens while you're playing the rest of the game.

Don't worry about levels. Just play.

I am no longer banned.

Also all the servers list "very high" due to the number of accounts created and not the active players. which is just another deceitful method to make people think the game is thriving.

I recently just returned for this new living story event involving the marionette boss to see nothing has changed.

Allow me to have a laugh; Ha-Ha.

Seriously, no. MMO's are just your everyday games with the socializing aspect built to them as a core. You need to lower your standards. Games dont last years unless they launch under the golden star with silver spoon in their arse like league and wow did.

Ok so you did one of all the 2 week events and that means all of the previous ones, within the last year, must have been buggy.

Ok.

 

Well sorry that you came back and didn't like the game. Guess it's time for all of us to stop playing now.

Because MMO's aren't supposed to end.

I play MMOs because I enjoy being part of a living world with other players.

If an MMO only lasts me a month, it wasn't worth it.  I play MMOs in hope of finding one that I can play for years.

Unfortunately all MMOs at the moment consist of nothing but re-hashed mechanics and ideas that have been repeated hundreds of times for the past 15 years.

Even the sandbox games (EVE, Darkfall, Mortal Online, etc.) are complete crap.  EVE is only fun if you've been playing it for years...or if you really enjoy economics and building in game wealth (some people love that... I personally hate it.).

Darkfall 1 was the best sandbox game available in my opinion.  At least for the last 9 months or so of its existence (no grind and combat system had finally reached a level where it was extremely fun).  Then the company running it killed it in hope of making a more "themepark sandbox" and the unleashed Darkfall Unholy Wars, one of the worst games I've ever played.

And Mortal Online is still in pre-alpha...so not much to say there.

There's no MMO available right now that can hold my attention for more than a week or 2.

Here's to hoping The Repopulation or Star Citizen finally put an end to this.

OP  1/30/14 11:14:27 PM#39

You can defend this game all you want, it doesn't change the fact that it most likely won't even exist in 2015. Remember NCsoft has an itchy trigger finger when it comes to shutting down games.(R.I.P City of Heroes.)

Already in the last financial report for gw2 it has lost over 40% of revenue generated.(Think I'm making this up? http://global.ncsoft.com/global/ir/quarterly.aspx  read 3Q 2013 earnings releases on the top)

During this time of WoW's lifespan its revenue was still skyrocketing past the moon and reaching new millions of subs almost every month.

How do you even expect something as incredibly shitty as this to even be able to hold onto its players once Everquest Next releases?

Ok GW2...2 years...40 percent drop in revenue.

WoW.....2 years...revenue still rising.

Not a very good sign IMO.

base on your wording, i had a feeling that you got hit hard and trying to bite back the game. i'm not here to defend any game but i'll speak my opinions.

its hard for a decend game disappear within 1 year. so i guess you'll see GW2 in 2015 for sure.

secondly, you should compare GW2 with all the recent release game like SWTOR or FF14. no game even reach  what WOW did. also i think WOW is droping from 10 mil subs to 7mil and it still does.

thirdly, one game is not for everyone, i knew some people doesnt like WOW at all because of the cartoonis style. however the number of people vote for it will speak for it instead of just 1 person opinions.

forth, i going sleep :D
