And honestly, that's all they need.

Eaxactly,so much for the OP assumption that ArenaNet can't afford a forum.

Speaking against GW2 is sacrilege and you will burn righteous fire. What ArenaNet does should not be questioned by mere mortals.

Mission in life: Vanquish all MMORPG.com trolls - especially TESO, WOW and GW2 trolls.

I stand to my above stated opinion, no matter which company we're talking about. I despise official game forums as a whole. You can, from my experience, look at any major game forum and find the most vile parts of the game's community. If you fail to manage losing all the fun in a game, visiting its forums will do the job nicely.

Let me point out that, in fact, I couldn't care less about these first world problems. I'm just having fun.

If you look at how big the SWTOR forums were before launch (millions and millions of pageviews) and how much of the most zealous fans were "locked up" in there, there is some merrit to the tactic to have them spread out over multiple fansites, genre sites, etc. for the sake of word of mouth. At least pre-release.

Glad it's your opinion because it seems like you are Just guessing the reason why lol.

It just makes sense: better word of mouth, less costs. Win-win for them. Can't blame 'em. And just a support forum isn't the same thing tbh.

But personally I would really appreciate having realm forums as a tool to get your server together and well organized for WvWvW. In general realm forums work wonders to help shape communities and find likeminded people and new friends. SWToR didn't have realm forums and that really sucked in my opinion; community felt like anonymous grains of sand.

they avoided 10 million "Whens Release?" "Can I play now" "How do I Play" "Give me beta access!" and ect threads... bravo to them, more time to develop, less time spent moderating.

Everything I say is my opinion or personal preference. You may or may not find it useful to your cause but regardless I am entitled to it.

Crazy that this is what’s troubling people... And they use Social networking sites;
  1. http://twitter.com/#!/guildwars2
  2. http://www.facebook.com/GuildWars2
  3. And Googles http://www.youtube.com/user/arenanetofficial

All hail the Barn Owl! oh.. and the RED SQUIRREL!!!

Anyway ,you can get all the other stuff on gw2guru,no need for a official gw2 forum.If you need help or tec then you have a support forum,that's plenty good enough.

Forget about swtor,this is GW2 we are talking about,get that game out of your system.

True, they should make a forum and only let people who bought the game post in it, that's the difference between a mmo and a game. I would stop being sarcastic but then I took a small violin in the knee

Yeah.. and this really sounds very serious for a company..

 

"Folks, lets pass the ball to a random internet site"
"Good idea!"
"Yeah, let them make nice cash from ads also, just because we post from time to time"
"Good idea!"
"We should not worry about customers to much, overall, gw2guru is not our site, they can cry on whatever they want"
"Good idea!"

want me to continue?

Fixed that for you.

 

Other than that - complaining about a company's marketing strategy? Really?

Games these days need an official forum in the case of GW2 though I dont mind so much because there is no subscription.  However I do not play games (with a sub) that do not have official forums + server specific forums for community integration and organisation.

It is essential in today's social media blabla.

Lets look at the top mmorpgs number wise right now in the west

WoW - Forums + Server Forums

Lotro - Forums + Server Forums

You are wasting your time lol.
You can always http://www.arena.net/contact/


 
Yeah.. and this really sounds very serious for a company..

 

"Folks, lets pass the ball to a random internet site"
"Good idea!"
"Yeah, let them make nice cash from ads also, just because we post from time to time"
"Good idea!"
"We should not worry about customers to much, overall, gw2guru is not our site, they can cry on whatever they want"
"Good idea!"

want me to continue?

 

Please do,we are cracking up in the office.

I can only guess the productivity of your work place.

We often do the same but some how it seems to all come together,targets are reached and everybody get's paid.

But that's a whole other topic,think we are talking about an official forum for GW2 and why ArenaNet choose not to have one.

Any idea?
