OP  9/06/12 7:46:20 PM#1

I really really wanted to love this game.  I just can't get into it. 

The pvp battlegrounds can be pretty fun but with no real reward I don't see any motivation to keep going and going.   I am not a big quester, and while I enjoy the classes and the world is beautiful I just hate the way they did the weapon skills.  After your weapon skills are complete, what other reason is there to level?  Yea I get the support and healing skills but none of them ever really seem worth grinding up and still using the same weapon skills you've always used throughout the whole game.  I feel that the WvWvW was very fun at first and probably could be still but because of the reason I just mentioned for finding the classes boring I can't get into it that often either. 

So here I sit with two level 9 characters and no real drive to log back in.  Even my good friend who plays with me and loves to quest isn't very motivated to log in.  Maybe I'm missing something here but I feel there is such a lack of reward versus how much grind they put into this one isn't equalling out.  The way they did class skills is extremely boring to me and I don't see any reason whatsoever to level to 80.  I don't hate the game or think that it's terrible (aside from a few features that should be expected in a AAA mmo), I'm just extremely bored by it and dissapointed because I was hoping it would keep me entertained for a few months at least.

I just dont find the game a grind at all. I find the leveling to not take any grinding and to come quite easily as I move through the game world.

Honest review, and I tend to agree with much of what you said. I still think it's a good game, I'm just not wowed by it at all. The fact that it's "FREE" creates a lot of favorable reviews. If GW@ was subscription based I don't think it would be receiving the praise it does currently.

 It's been said before that this game isn't for everyone. It's ok. Find something else to do.

This is the part that always interests me.  I'd love to hear more.

"I'll admit I'm decently (hugely) biased because no matter how many times I tried I just wouldn't get into Wow.

However!! PvP in Rift is my entire end game.  I rarely dungeon, and never raid, and pvp content is massive and keeps my playing still almost a year after launch."

 

According to your own likes GW2 should have been the best game ever for you yet now you claim it's not? Weird.

Sounds more like you are bored of the genre and not the game. Knowing too much can sometimes do that about a title. It's also very early and if you've only got one person to login with to play it can get a little lonely. 

I hope you find something that interests you.

I agree with this. It isn t a bad game, but if it were a sub game, it would be half if not 1/4 as popular.

I think the combat is extremely well down (almost Devil may cry style) and am having a blast fighting my way through the world. I even started  paying attention to the dailies.

I do agree with you having all weapon skills in the beginning with NO unlocks what so ever is stupid. I already want new weapons and new skills and I just started...

 But lets be honest sub based games are basically going the way of the dinosaur. To say if it was sub based it would be 1/4 as popular is silly. Chances are if it was sub based it would go the way of SWTOR at some point in the future, but thats as much because of the way gaming is going as it is anything the game does right or wrong. F2P or hybrid like DDO has done is the wave of the future and in reality the wave of the present. Sub based gaming is just about done.

I respect your opinion but I can't agree with it. The lack of "reward" for levelling is simply a removal of the carrot and the stick we've seen in umpteen MMO's before. I'm enjoying the game not because of any reward or lack of. I'm just finding it fun. The exploration, wandering around areas just to see what's there. The simple reward of finding a point of interest or a vista and figuring out how to get to it. The rambling excursions through caves, up and down rock faces, along planks over long drops, just to see where it goes.

 

Weapon skills may be unlocked quickly but there's a whole bunch of other skills to unlock and choose from, plus traits to explore and experiment with.

 

I don't find the game feeling at all like a grind. It feels more like an MMO that finally concentrates more on the journey, rather than the destination. There's no longer a need to get to the level cap before you get to the "end game", something that's been done too many times already.

 

Luckily for you there are plenty of MMO's out there offering what you seem to be looking for. Personally I'm glad to find one at least that does things differently for a change.

I feel exactly the same, they really delivered on that promise.  I've never had as much fun prior to level 35 in any other MMO, including WoW, which was always most fun for me from lvl 60 to 70, then not again til endgame.  Yeah, I actually liked Hellfire Penninsula, so what of it? lol

In GW2, I never felt the need to hurry or felt like I was missing out by not having dungeon ques to throw myself into and level quickly.  My opinion might change after a few alts, but for the time being, it's been a total joy.

The classes and the way they did the class skills aren't the same thing.  I loved mesmer in the first game for example, but the way they do skills in this game versus what they did in the first ruins it for me.

And I don't believe I said "OMG I'VE SEEN EVERY INCH OF THE WORLD ALL OF IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!"  I said the world is beautiful, meaning what I've seen of it is beautiful.  Chill the hell out.

I think your response really opens my eyes a bit.  This could be more symptematic of the fact that I am a long term veteran of the MMO genre and can't adjust to just be given exploration and adventure as my goal.  Very good points.

 What a silly thing to say. An unhappy player should still post why they are unhappy. Maybe they are looking to stay or maybe some response helps them see the game a little differently. Your response has no chance of doing that but a well thoughtout and polite one might help the OP.

Or that person could have a legitimate gripe... I know, it's hard to get out of that corner that you all painted yourselves into, but come on, game is released, if people don't like it, LET THEM NOT LIKE IT...

 

GW2 commmunity adds even more...

That Guild Wars 2 login screen knocked up my wife. Must be the second coming!
