AND yet many posters here used VGcharts as the gospel on SWTOR sales when a decent percentage of THAT games sales were digital purchases through a propritary and untrackable online store. It seems people will champion or villify any bumbling stupidity depending on how it supports their argument. I'd be willing to bet that if this guy had made a blog post in favor of GW2 you would all be singing praises to his name and using his review on TSW to help fuel the pointless and retarded rivalry that has somehow cropped up between TSW and GW2 fans, and not demonizing him as a complete moron. It all very much depends on whose ox is being gored.

After all this time people should understand that opinions are just like assholes, and with todays technology any retard with an axe to grind can stake out a big shinny bilboard in blogland. DrIving yourself into a foaming at the mouth frenzy such as the one the OP and several others who have replied here have done, accomplishes nothing EXCEPT making YOU look like irrational and hateful zealots, making the game you champion look bad, and I think in this instance most importantly, GIVING CREEDENCE, FAME AND LEGITIMACY TO A TOTALLY POINTLESS BLOG THAT NONE OF US HAVE EVER HEARD OF. And probably never would have.

Um.... it isn't a bigger point because GUILD WARS is a reference to the lore of the game, not a feature in it.  That's something no one seems to understand.  Look it up if you care to, but God, stop saying that stupid line.

VGSales tracked right with EA's disclosed sales numbers.   You lost that argument then.  You lose it now

 

EA reports, in February 1.7+ million subs at 12/31/2011; VGCharts reports:

31st December 2011 2 311,687 -78.6% 1,765,181

At December 31st, all sold games are 100% subbed (except a small handful with activiation issues) in the trial period.

 

EA reports, in February 2012, 2.0+ million sales through January 31st, VGCharts reports:

28th January 2012 6 46,406 -17.0% 2,043,448

 

In May EA told us they had apporximately 2.3 million in sales, SWTOR sales (via VGCharts) currently stand at:

2,395,424

 

Like I said, you lost and you lose.   EA tells us numbers, VGCharts correlates.    Your wishful thinking and criticisms are meaningless because they are factually wrong.

 

I'll spare you the complete lecuture on VGCharts and which numbers are safe (and why they are), but the reason you're wrong is you seem to be completely unaware of the fact that many Companies, including EA, report their sales to VGCharts.     The whole 'they're wrong' issue has to do with some numbers Riccitello-the-Liar didn't like that came from NPDGroup.

true didn't want to get into a discussion about swtor since this isn't that forum. Although for companies that don't give out these numbers you can see where VGCharts estimates it's data from. Well have to see on their next report if TSW numbers reflect the charts or not though.

Companies that don't report remain a complete blackhole.      NCSoft doesn't report to VGSales, though until the end of 2008 they did in their financial statements.   And they still do in press releases. 

 

With TSW...   EA MIGHT report their co-publishing sales, but Funcom doesn't and probably won't.   And since it's not particularly a retail-chain point-of-sale game...    It's going to be tough to know what happened.

 

Funcom is really secretive about their details.      You can see they lost $12 million over the past 18-months.   But the sales details remain a secret.   Though, to be honest, Funcom is clear that they don't think sales were as good as hoped for:

 

Funcom is currently implementing several cost-adjustment initiatives due to the expected lower initial revenues from The Secret World to secure future positive cash flows. 

http://www.funcom.com/investors/the_secret_world_update

I think AoC remains a big albatross around their neck.  And GW2 being released so close didn't help.   Too many people play just one MMO at a time.

Didn't read the article but I have to say I found WvW to be the most boring aspect of GW2 three tiered gaming experience (PvE, sPvP, WvW). Just my opinion and I tend to prefer large scale PvP but I always found myself bored in WvW. Needs more meaning behind it and consequence.

This has to be the most stupid and narrow minded blog I've ever read.

Why do some gamers latch onto an MMO so fervently that they call anyone who has a differing opinion stupid and narrow minded?

They don't delete posts for no reason at all. That means you broke a rule and they felt that your post deserved to be deleted. And saying nice mature post and following it up by throwing mud really doesn't speak well for you. If you want mature responses, then you should probably learn to post some yourself. While I don't feel it's necessary to slander other games, sometimes zylaxx is right to do so when people feel the need to compare and state that "[insert game here] is so amazing and awesome and better than GW2" with no facts or reasons and honestly deserve a slap in the face to get them back to reality in that their game isn't all they make it out to be. And again, you throw words in our mouth like everyone who hates the game and feels the need to bash it, only a small majority of players praise GW2 as the [insert whatever over exaggerated praise you want] but the majority know that there are things wrong with the game that are deal breakers to others.

And you would have to be ignorant to say all of it was garbage....it would be annoying as hell to repeatedly run for 2-5mins die and do it all over again repeatedly. sure it may be a bit oldschool and more immersive to NOT have mounts but in the end i feel the game will suffer from that constant respawn run as well. 

Thats where your wrong though.  Based on previous knowledge and history of gaming in MMO's.  WvW (RvR in DAoC) was a worthwhile and rewarding experience that kept players entertained for thousands of hours and years untill the great PvE debacle of ToA changed the whole power structure and rewarded time spent playing over the more traditional DAoC paradigm of skill matters.

 

Then you dont even bring up the flawed arguments the blogger tried to make concerning the other forms of endgame or the total asanine remark that Dynamic Events are of the same useless calibre as WoW's Voice Chat.

 

I am glad you like GW2 but it still begs the question what proof do you have that it will be a "3 monther" when all statistics and experience say this will be as big a hit on the MMO market as WoW was in 2004.  GW2 is the evolutionary successor to WoW and even non gaming entities such as market analysts are predicting it to change the way MMO's are developed for the forseable future.

I'm sorry but you have no, 'proof', beyond anything but your already over inflated expectations.  Lots of these discussions simply breakdown to, 'I'm really hyped for this game and I don't get why this guy isn't'.

Personally I think he's points have merit, but how it'll work out in the longterm is the issue for many people.  He even admits himself he could be wrong, are you capable of that?

 

 

This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

It all very much depends on whose ox is being gored.

After all this time people should understand that opinions are just like assholes, and with todays technology any retard with an axe to grind can stake out a big shinny bilboard in blogland. DrIving yourself into a foaming at the mouth frenzy such as the one the OP and several others who have replied here have done, accomplishes nothing EXCEPT making YOU look like irrational and hateful zealots, making the game you champion look bad, and I think in this instance most importantly, GIVING CREEDENCE, FAME AND LEGITIMACY TO A TOTALLY POINTLESS BLOG THAT NONE OF US HAVE EVER HEARD OF. And probably never would have.

So what if Dynamic Events reset after 2 hrs?

Honestly this is something thats really not well understood.

 

DE's do not reset.

They always move up or down their path. They only move from 1 state to another.

 

It really is a big difference.

Reset means that an object or a quest will default to its original state without any outside intervention.

It will "time out" and default itself.

 

DE's change states.

Lets say a DE has 3 states, the player starts the event and manages to reach phase nr2.

Then the player decides to leave the area forgetting all about the event. What that means is that the event itself will stay stuck on phase 2 until an external factor pushes it back to either 1 or 3. The event will not time out and default itself.

Meaning a DE is a persistent change to the gameworld.

It will persist until changed by someone or something else.

 

 

I already knew that, was just trying to get a point across and forgot to change that specific word. The links show all that. Don't have to explain it to me. Thanks for replying thou. Other's will benefit I am sure. :)
