AoC from 2008 blows it right out of the water, and the performance is very poor on modern hardware. I got 40ish fps on my gtx 670 and 15-20 in WvWvW. And yes, that was with subsampling off.

It doesn't even support DX10, let alone DX11. I don't know of any other game that have come in 2012 with only DX9 support.

 

I'm not really a graphics whore, but to say that GW2 has a good engine is a lot of baloney.

No idea about engines or whatnot, but I (and anyone I've had over to check the game out) love the way it looks and I'm constantly awed by my surroundings. Compare to recent other game with "revolutionary engine and highest possible end graphics" which I could not even stomach cause it looked horrendous to me. Graphics to me = what it looks like when I look at it, not what's behind it. /shrug

But everywhere else there's holes that I didn't expect to find and  because they were rarely if ever mentioned by all the fanboy beta testers.

 

The first dungeon is for level 30+.  Seriously?  No wonder they didn't put a group finder in.  Alot of players will quit before they get that far.

 

The skill system is laughable.  I mean it looks great--until you actually play the game and realize you've learned all your weapon skills at level 5.  PVP must be a headache.  By the way I'm just assuming that because I can already tell I don't want to go there.

 

The controls feel like GW1 which is not a good thing and the main reason I never could get into that game.  They're slightly improved over GW1 but definitely not the quality I'm used to from WOW and TOR.

 

No mounts of any kind.

No housing of any kind.

The tradeskill system is...um yeah.

F2P does not mean better.  If a game has ever reinforced this notion it is GW2.  It is so devoid of features it feels like a struggling sub MMO in freebie mode.

   GW2 isn't the game for you plain and simple, there are no mounts because they want people to buy speed boosts and its not even necessary, if they add mounts in the game they ruin the plan of making money from speed boosts, No housing? This game isn't made for housing buddy. This game is completely different then any other mmo you would expect that coming into the game? I hope you didnt expect GW2 to be like WoW, the reason the game was hyped was because it wasn't WoW and the reason I bought it was because it wasn't WoW. You see the issue? lul

Guild Wars 2 uses a heavily modified Guild Wars game engine which includes support for true 3D environments, more detailed environments and models, better lighting and shadows, new animation and effects systems, plus new audio and cinematics engines and a more flexible combat and skill-casting system.

Gaile Gray has indicated the game will support DirectX 10, but not require it to play. Guild Wars 2 will utilise the Havok physics engine to provide ragdoll animation and destructible environments, as well as occlusion culling technology licensed from Umbra Software to optimise 3D object rendering. [2]

Incorrect.  The game looks beautiful and runs great.

If you think that 40 fps standing still even without the max options on one of the best graphics cards out there is great than all power to you. But in reallty it isn't. I have around 100 fps in TSW on max graphics, DX11 and TXAA, and that's not the most optimized engine either. It may look pretty and shiny, but that is not due to the engine but the cartoon style.

They said it would support DX10, but in it's current incarnation it doesn't.

You should look at your drivers or even your system a little more closely. I run the same GTX 670 and my fps is higher.  edit: I removed the other photo so you could also possibly use the settings I have and it may help your fps. :)

People will be people, even if there 1million threads about this game not being at all WoW, people will still expect it to be like WoW, it's like a natural thought, "new game? yay I'm going to expect the regular features such as mounts group finder right from day one and a perfect launch, it will have to happen or omg ima rage quit." type of thing so ya its laughable :D

I went out of my way to upgrade drivers to latest beta drivers, even tried to force win7 not to shut down cpu cores etc but to no avail. When other games run stellar on the system I don't think the problem is on my end. And I can get 100+ fps in GW2 as well but then I have to lower the graphics options and resolution which I shouldn't have to on this system.

I agree with you totally. If people that love WoW and Rift type games would just take there thought process by the edges, and shake it like an etch o sketch they would have a fresh perspective.

 Oh wait. I see.  This was a slam thread, not a discussion.   

 

Now it's a thread about discussing:

 

I'm really enjoying the exploration (finding views, etc..)  I find that I tend to do that more than questing.   

Oh, WOW!

Thank God you came by then!

It's the sad state of the genre. The next big title has as many threads discussing issues with it's business model than issues with the game itself.

Why on earth do you need a mount?  With the Portals and Waypoints it's faster than using any mount.  Actually, when you hit level 2 you can just enter the PvP lobby and you can access Lion's Arch from there at Portal to where you like.  I use it to level up in different newbie zones.

Housing?  Never been interested in it in any mmo, so that doesn't interest me.

Tradeskill is no worse than any other game, and a lot better than in quite a few.

The weapon/spell skill system is interesting.  It's the Traits and weapon combos that I really like, tailoringy yourself to several roles - it's flexible, it's fun and it's not a cookie-cutter faceroll system.  It's a lot cleverer than you give it credit for.  I will say that the weapon skill unlocks don't seem to make much sense - it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to unlock them all, and that amount of time is so short I don't know why they bothered with it.  That's just a trivial niggle though.

Unlike you, I think there are a lot of features, and the game pleases me as much as Eve Onine, albeit in two very different ways.

Lol, i love how everyone thinks the people who game want a game like 'wow" You do know that wow stole ideas from many other games and put them into one, Wow didn't invent most of the stuff that went into the game. So stop referring to all games are "wow clones" When infact 99.95% of them arent. Some of them try to, such as 4story and runes of magic. But they only used the "Wow clone" genre as a base and worked further to improve their own unique game. I personally don't like Guild wars 2 and after reading so many posts to see what people are saying about it. It made me go further away from ever trying this game. To me, the graphics arent "All that" I've played many games with better graphics. I don't like how the skill system seems to work (Although, i do admit it seems quite interesting to see what happens with it later down the line.) Nothing in this game really appeals to me. But those are just my 2cents on this whole thing. 

But for the op to make a post like this is just frustrating for the GW2 fanboys out there that are over hyping this game. I don't know what the game is like. But to type that he done without experiencing 90% of the game while playing seems kind of stupid to me. 

(Remember, what i said about gw2 is just my personal opinion. I just don't like the concept of the game, As it doesn't appeal to me. But it may do later when i get back into mmorpgs)

That is exactly what I said, people shouldn't think about WoW when it comes to gaming. I never said they want a game like it. I said they should think fresh and different.

No. Stupid is being presumptuous and saying ZOMG HE HASN'T PLAYED 90% OF THE GAME!!!

What scientific process brought you to that conclusion?

I had to play a pretty frickin long time just to get into a dungeon with a group of players.  In a MMORPG.  Somethings very wrong with that.  And its something I don't remember seeing mentioned in any of the previews I watched and read before buying GW2.

You'd think somebody, between all you beta testers out there, would have made a little more noise about that ahead of time.  I seriously did not expect to find a design hole big enough to fly a 747 through in such a hyped game.

Gotta laugh after actually reading you OP now.

Took me no longer that 5 min to put together a group for the first dungeon. Where did you spam to find a group? the starting zone? lol. I see people post about groups for instances constantly.

OMG no mounts. I have to go walk and experience things while I go get waypoints to fast travel instead of afk with num lock down as I fly over everything. WAHHHHH.

No housing? I want sims in my game. They promised me this at a later time... its later isn't it. Wheres my god damn house?

This game is F2P, what was that 50$ I payed to get into it then?

Enjoy WoW or TOR btw, we won't miss you. Sound like a raging little kid to me, it's kinda sad. Specially since a lot of this was covered before the game came out... but clearly you plugged your ears to it and pretended that it was never mentioned. Everything you posted was posted once before, and it was all preference or you just being bad and not figuring out how to do it properly (dungeon finding mostly). As far as the rest, thats your opinion on what needs to be in a game. But I could care less if it is or not.

No. Stupid is being presumptuous and saying ZOMG HE HASN'T PLAYED 90% OF THE GAME!!!

What scientific process brought you to that conclusion?

I had to play a pretty frickin long time just to get into a dungeon with a group of players.  In a MMORPG.  Somethings very wrong with that.  And its something I don't remember seeing mentioned in any of the previews I watched and read before buying GW2.

You'd think somebody, between all you beta testers out there, would have made a little more noise about that ahead of time.  I seriously did not expect to find a design hole big enough to fly a 747 through in such a hyped game.

Ok, first off, if you're trying to prove a point, don't go back and be a hypocrite about it. I see exactly what he's talking about with the GW2 being hyped up by fan boys like you. It's like GW2 players are too stubborn and blinded to see that they do the exact same retarded things as WoW players do, then they go off and blame every little aspect you don't like about the game and compare it to other stupid MMOs. He said he'd like a mount. No where does he say it's because he wants to travel around the map fast because he's use to it, no where does it say he wanted it to be like other MMOs, no where does it say he doesn't like the dungeoning system. Your stupid, blatant fanboyish statements really irritate me -- including the fact when he's having an actual discussion about what he DISLIKES about the game and what he PREFERS in the game. But you cannot seem to get it through that thick skull of yours that they are merely opinions and none raging statements. He said it sucks, so get the fuck over it. Just because he doesn't like the way things are played on this game doesn't mean he's bad and it doesn't mean he can't do things right, it just means you're ignorant towards any other opinions but yours.

Don't even get me started with any other retarded, contridicting statements you pulled. Good day, mate.

Read first line, skipped rest.

 

Really, graphics engine best in the business? Im not really sure how you rate/scale a graphics engine... but Tera looks light years ahead of GW2 graphics.
