I think it was the castle like theme that I caught with the animal humanoids walking around that to me reminded me of Gilneas.

This something I haven't seen in a while, an ignorant WoW-baby.

It's made me realise that people have come a long way from thinking WoW was the first fantasy mmo. Well, most people at least.

Actually the OP is not the only one to mix up wow and gw2. 2 of my friends(wow players) didn't know a thing about gw2 and when they watched the manifesto they compared charr/worgen   Sylvari(old desing)/elf   Asura/gnome(because of the size maybe?)

 

But starting a thread about your first impression after watching 30 seconds of a trailer is just stupid trolling.

Charr existed before WoW introduced worgen as a race. 

 

Asura are more like things from Final Fantasy than gnomes.

 

Sylvari are frigging plants.

 

Yes almost all western fantasy has a number of tropes that get constantly recylced like those damn stupid looking pointy ears on various races.

 

But seriously we can play this game with ANY fantasy game with races.  You realize how easy this would be to do with EQ2 right? 

 

It would be even easier to do this with Skyrim instead of WoW, at least Edler scrolls has a race that is actually a humanoid cat similar to charr.  Rather than people trying to claim a frigging Werewolf clone (as if this was created by frigging Blizzard, I mean do ppl realize how stupid this is?) is the same as Charr which are lion-like and have a completely different culture than Worgen (which really are just Werewolves, I mean they are created from humans even just like werewolves). 

 

OMG this game has furries.  WoW has furries 11111!!  this must be the same.   I mean come on guys.  Seriously please.   I am begging you.   WoW took a centuries old legend and used a different name.  Its not even an original name, its just something they stole from Tolkien.  Please don't equate that to the Charr, just because Charr are furries.

The OP like many on this site simply can't see past WOW, I don't care what game it is, if all you can think of to compare it to is WOW. The problem doesn't rest on the shoulders of anyone or anything but yourself. You're simply suffering from tunnel vision be it through a severe hatred for WOW or too much time spent in WOW ( that or you let popular forum banter form your thoughts for you, which is worse than either). If you use the term WOW clone to describe anything I simply can't take what you say seriously.

Never used the term.   Once again I simply stated it was what I was reminded of. 

 

Now here's the thing, there was a time I did enjoy playing world of warcraft.  It was rather enjoyable at one time and definitely will be hard to replace, not having played it in over 8 months I've been on an active search to find an interesting game that can give me the same gratitude that wow had once given me.

A simple question comes to mind about time/investment and if it's worth given another main stream game the effort I once put into another game.   Yes I enjoyed Eve but not a fan of how it's currently being played out right now and yes the same goes for current Wow.   Since Cata the game was no longer appealing to me, for multiple reasons.

Anyway, going back on topic.   Even if this game was a wow clone, or not a clone it hardly matters.  What matters if it can provide someone the same entertainment and the same feeling of gratitude while playing it and if the money they are spending is worth it.   In a way I hope guild wars 2 has similar features to wow, cause at least I enjoyed playing it unlike many others.  

The main fact is I was taken off guard with how much the trailer reminded me of it, I honestly felt a little excited in a way.  To know that I might be able to get that same enjoyment I had long ago when I played a similar type game.    I play games to have fun and if I can manage to find another one that I can deem just as fun then I'm all for it.

Even if charr resembled the wrogen they are in guild war 1 which released near same time of world of warcraft, did world of warcraft had worgen back then? uh yea thought so.

Nice troll attempt tough was fun reading every comment against your OP.

Definitely not the first, I'm not an idiot.   Secondly, it's easy to compare to games I actually played then ones I had no interest in playing especially when it's a game that everyone and their grandmother know.   Your point is even less valid then the ones I tried making earlier.

All of what you said is based on your personal assumption.   No where did I state that it affected my view of the game, I stated I was just surprised.  Secondly I did not state at all that people should change their consideration to play it.  

So your saying your stating your opinion but not because you care if anybody takes it into consideration. Why would you state an opinion when you could care less about the end result of that opinion.

For myself I tried WoW, didn't think much off it and even though I have enjoyed other Blizzard offerings never felt compelled to give them any money for that offering. I didn't play far enough in the game to say GW2 is the same as WoW, but I wouldn't render an opinion about whether it was or not based on 1/2 of a trailer without knowing what the game had to offer that could make itself stand out.

You know as a Canadian I can say yes in many ways it does remind me of America.    A donkey also has many similar features that a horse possesses.   No neither things are alike in both questions, but they have their simularities.  Which can cause someone to be reminded of one or the other in a non extremist way.

Threads like these makes me wonder how many smear campaigns Blizzard places in MMO gaming forums  and in other games in order to sabotage launch of competitions and sway public opinions.

Okay then why did you seem to be sarcastically complaining about it in the OP?  That makes no sense. 

 

If I tell you the game isnt like WoW is that going to dissapoint you then?  Or no....because you are hoping it IS like WoW....right? 

 

You're just going back and forth at this point.  The game doesnt play like WoW at all.  The mechanics are totally different. 

 

Weapons affect your skills.  Questing is no where near the same.  You can color and dye armor to your liking.  There are dynamic events that scale depending on player participation.  Swimming and underwater combat is nothing the same.  Side activities include bar brawls etc.  There are ways to interact with the world, such as throwing your mug of brew you've been drinking at someones head.  There are dodge mechanics and positioning matters.  The list just goes on and on.  I leave it to you to find out the rest of differences. 

 

There are some simularities.  The game has classes.  The game is set in a fantasy setting.  But if this looks like WoW to you, then so does every single fantasy game in existence.  Its already long known and understood that GW 1 is nothing like WoW and GW2 will be the same.  They play totally differently. 

 

Having said that, does that make you sad its not like WoW?  Or happy?  I cant tell.  You seem to have taken opposite stances in the thread already.   You're not really making sense at this point.

Does Canada remind you of America? Does a Donkey remind you of a Horse?

Ty

You know as a Canadian I can say yes in many ways it does remind me of America.    A donkey also has many similar features that a horse possesses.   No neither things are alike in both questions, but they have their simularities.  Which can cause someone to be reminded of one or the other in a non extremist way.

No offence, but you seriously have something failing in the head.

Did you want me to draw you a portrait in exactly how things are similar and why someone might perceive them as the same or be reminded of something with similar features?
