For anyone on the fence about coming back, I have been playing again for 2 weeks now and there are a lot of solid changes to the game. PvE, PvP, Storyline, and Cosmetics have all improved.

Game was always fun, and I still say it's the best MMO available until we get a good Sandbox. I would recommend jumping back in if you haven't played in a while.

Oh, and I thought you meant S2. Yes, there's currently no way to replay S1. One of the devs mentioned something about adding S1 content to the system later on, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

Specifically, they said they'd love to make S1 replayable, but they are currently not working on making that possible. If you consider the way S1 worked and was rolled out, it doesn't seem likely to happen anytime soon, and even if it did, it would probably be only the story instances, not the larger open world events.

On the positive side, that also means you're probably not going to have to fix road markers again :)

I'd be more than fine with just the story parts.

My biggest beef with playing GW2's story at the moment is that it feels like I'd be starting to read a novel with a chapter ripped out here and there. Not exactly a fun prospect.

It'd be a lot easier if I was one of the players that only cares about end-game content and skips all the story parts...but alas, I'm not.

I quit the game halfway trough season 1, not liking the living story content was one of the main reasons..

 

now i started playing season 2 and played the first chapter, and it absolutely feels like what i loved about the personal story parts of the main story.....   Yes its linear, but i never cared about that...  I am traveling the world again, meeting people listening to NPC conversations and enjoying the dynamic content and the new story based season 2 ...

I just can't get into it, having done both chapters now.

The story has improved immensely and the graphics are stunning. I like the new events, albeit I dislike the jumping, and it seems like a huge improvement over season 1. But still, I can't get into it.

Guild Wars 2 doesn't feel like an MMO to me, it feels like an interactive movie. When there's a new update, you play through it for an hour then put the game away till the next update.

There's no reason to login on a daily basis and there's no reason to group with anyone or form any kind of a meaningful relationship. It's a single player game with free bi-weekly DLC that just happens to be online.

I hate to sound like a broken record, but this pretty much sums up where GW2 is right now.  Ever since the Living Story was introduced, it's been taking precedence, and resources, over the other facets of the game, that is largely being ignored.  People who love story will be happy though.

Tbh i need new dungeons, normal dungeons, not temporary then made into fractals :). I want sth new, as big as Arah to explore with my friends. Doing world map is cool, but not enough.

 

So far S2 is far better than S1, but not perfect ;)

Thats because there is no character progression at max level, this goes for both PvE and PvP, WvW is nothing but mindless zerging and killing with flawed goals but no progression,  PvE has no character progression adn there is no gear progression...

 

to make it a true MMO that keeps people playing, they need to add mild gear progression, and some kind of AA system that rewards both PvE as WvW.  ...i have been saying this since before release...   

 

And offcourse more group content like real dungeons for single and multi groups...

stunning? Its just more of the same drek we've been eating for a year plus with recycled mechanics (like the stupid crystals) now needed to simply move around in the Dry Top zone.

 

This game has become nothing but a bore and the new "stunning" content is uninspired. All in my opinion. If this was a sub game I'd have already cancelled.

Game is same as its been. Some "oh look - new - shiny" moments wedged in with "oh look - same crap we been doing for a year+ in a new zone... zzzzzzzzzzzzzz"

 

If "oh shiny" is what you want - fine - come back. Its free. But your time is not. Think about all the other games out there which actually lead you somewhere and ask where your time is better spent. Season 2, like season 1, is temp content only now there is a cash grab attached. Miss part of the temp content? No worries - give anet real $ and you can play it... blatent cash grab versus actually making permanent content.

Yawn. I'm done with GW2 - such a let down where anet pretty much broke all their lofty promises from pre-release.

these graphics are still cartoonish. If you want stunning - look at ESO and FFIVX

Agree.

 

There is no serious progression of any sort. All anet wants is for players to buy gems and junk off their store. Its just a cash grab at this point wrapped around a living story that is temporary and easily forgotten.

I recently went back to play GW 2 again and thus far I am really enjoying my experience.  Season 2 is simply stunning and I am have a great time.

Agree. I don't do the new area because of this. Just HATE the jumping and crystals (never done any jumping puzzle either, but they - luckily - are optional)

Can't stand anymore jumping puzzles. This whole area is about stupid jumping puzzles. GW2 is turning into a console platformer game. I uninstalled the game and probably won't go back. It seems like everytime they add new content they put something in to just annoy the crap out of you.

As much as I was bored with the first season storyline (except the great finale), here it's definitely the best story content I had the pleasure to play through in a MMORPG since a very, very long time, and it also beats many single player RPG storylines. Can't wait for the next episode.

It is indeed stunning, the guys at ANet are at their top here. Almost feels like Game of Thrones, you can't wait for the next episode to see what is going to happen.

Playing now: WoW, Landmark, GW2

Got a refund: Archeage. First refund since I started MMOs.

Top 3 MMORPGs played: UO, AC1 and WoW

Honorable mentions: AO, LotRO and GW2.

Which is fantastic for people not interested in that kind of serious progression based on grind and big guild/friends schedule play.

Yeah, GW2 has grind (and some really big grinds), but it isn't serious.

Currently playing: GW2
Going cardboard starter kit: Ticket to ride, Pandemic, Carcassonne, Dominion, King of Tokyo

That's some high praise indeed!

I decided to make a new character and go through the storyline again, so it'll be a while before I get to that content. But at least it will be there to play if I stay active.

On a sidenote: I forgot how awesome Divinity's Reach is. It makes the cities other MMO's have feel so insignificant.
