What I can't figure out is why players like you wish the worse to happen to other games? I mean seriously were all entitled to our opinion and maybe WoW and TSW isn't your game, but why spew so much negativity to a game that your not even playing? Do you really wish we all played ' 1 " mmo?

The 28th of this month is a good date for all gamers down the line whether your playing GW2, WoW, TSW and even maybe Rift / SWToR.

I know competition brings out the worse in players (my game is better than your game), but if you think about it, we are winners since we got so many mmo's to choose from. Not everyone is going to like the same mmo and we should just respect their choice, but to degrade and wish the worse onto a game is simply stupid on your part.

It is the nature of mmorogs to have populous communities. I can't say I blame all the bashing that's going on to root for any one players game of choice and create a more populous community. I like game A but game b and c are taking away from game A so let's use a little good ole fashion smear tactic to make my look better and thus dare I say it live long and be prosporous.

TSW was released on 29th of June (well, early access). Funcom stated they wanted to deliver monthly content updates, called therefore 'issues'.

Issue #1 went live 28th of July.

Issue #2 will go live (if nothing goes wrong) 28th of September.

 

I don't see how this would be any indicator they're scared of anything. It's their regular update schedule.

 
Plus, I don't really that much shared customer base between GW2 and TSW. I'd say traditional high fantasy MMORPGs have potentially more customers who would potentially jump ship. TSW has its own niche as being one of the few contemporary MMORPGs with a hefty dose of dark horror and adult themes.

If you say so.  guess you work for TSW to know this was the date they had set up before they knew when GW2 would launch.  Also, coming the day after Blizzard announced their next major patch on the same day...yeah, ok.  I don't believe in coincidences.

Let me guess:

If the monthly content patch had been pushed forward one week to Tuesday August 21st, it would be so they could compete with GW2 early access.

If the monthly update had been pushed back a week to September 4th it would be because they were afraid to launch a content update on GW2 launch day.

If they had updated any weekday other than tuesday it would definitely be because GW2 launched on a tuesday.

Nope.  Sorry, but no.  If you can't see the date as being important, then shove off.  Blizzard recognizes it, it's pretty blatant.  Might as well just admit Funcom does as well.  It's business.  Week before or week after would mean they aren't afraid of GW2, thought that was fairly obvious.

GW2 is a classic example of P2P. I believe it will totally validate that P2P is NOT dead, and that selling boxes is still a huge business.

Dear GW2 Fans.

 

We don't give a rats ass about sub numbers. we never thought the game will attract millions of people, We never thought we would topple any kind of industry giant. we wanted a game to play that we would enjoy which wasnt based around Elves fighting orcs with sticks, stones and spells.

 

in a nutshell keep throwing subs in our face and we will keep laughing at you. we don't care

 

Signed

TSW Fan Base.

Because i can.

So basically, FunCom should have changed their schedule because of GW's launch to show that they are not afraid of GW2 as a competitor. That makes sense. Seriously though, do you really think breaking both the promise to deliver customization options by the end of August and the promise to release monthly content updates just two months after launch would be good for business?

I agree that it would make sense to release an attractive update on the 28th if they didn't already have a schedule to stick to, but as it is, it is just coincidence.

Didn't you guys know, August 28th is a GW2 trademark...To think otherwise is ignorant!

 

I bought GW2 before I bought TSW, wasn't sure I was going to get TSW, but I think its a fun game...I played the first beta event, after the pre-orders opened up, and I wasn't as impressed as many have been....Could of been the classes I played, but I play Ranger or Necro in most games, so tried them in GW2.  My pet was dead 24/7 on the ranger (seen people say they tweaked this some)...I didn't play any more events, just because I am not huge on playing stuff when it doesn't 'count'.  Hopefully I enjoy the game, but I didn't see it as the second coming, like a lot seem to...

It's not a sub based game.  You can never hold subscription declines over their heads.

Just making sure I understand some people's reasoning...

GW2 officially announces their official release date on TSW's early access launch date = Good business move.

TSW announces a content patch that will release on GW2's launch date = TSW is running scared of the nail in the coffin.

 

OK, got it, just the usual blind hatred and defending of what one likes so they can say "I'm #1". I'll be back in the corner playing the games I choose without worrying about negative and positive hype.

I bought AoC because Vanguard had maintenance on the same day AoC hit shelves, and I was home sick that day.

LFD tools are great for cramming people into content, but quality > quantity.
I am, usually on the sandbox .. more "hardcore" side of things, but I also do just want to have fun. So lighten up already :)

the only people that think funcom / blizzard are "scared" of gw2, or swtor .. or ((insert any mmo here)) are the hyped up forum .. lemmings? not trying to be insulting .. cant think of a word for it. yes it's a generalization. if you dont like generalizations, stop posting the same things that have been posted for every release over the past 10 years.

it's good business sense. is fear a part of that? of course it is. if you aren't scared, you aren't alive. but fear is not what drives successful companies to make sure their product is positioned for success.

28th of August actually,

28th of September is probably when Issue #3 will hit.

True, true. I blame it on my childhood that I always confuzzle September with August. And vice versa :-D.

Highly likely to be 25th September for issue 3.  They always patch on a Tuesday, and its seems the last of the month for the content patches.  No connection with other games, or their releases, at all.

Unfortunately at that day my free 30 days runs out. And I'm not resubbing for this game. Have some strong and original elements, to some degree can be interesting ... but to me is no longer fun.
