Justin Bieber has more fans than GW2, guess he's innovative as well.

Joke.

Thats funny because the only thing it has killed is nothing.

Good lord.  Why can't GW2 fans get over the fact that many people just aren't as enamoured with the game as they are?  I like it and its a good game that has a lot of bang for the buck but its not the Robot Jesus a very vocal portion of the fans claim it is.
Oh shit, some sense detected in this thread what now? Thread impolosion? :/

@Ginaz I love how everyone loves to this jesus statement in peoples mouths, though not a single fan has said anything to that effect. And it changes everytime. Wasn't it second coming of jesus before, now robot jesus? What's flying most interesting man in the world raptor jesus?

That's exactly the problem. The game is an above average themepark MMORPG, but people (including ANET) keep painting it like it's the Obama of the MMO genre when in reality it's just a different take on the same old, I mean, at least Obama was black.

People don't like being lied to.

hate more plz

tell that to the millions who play gw2,go back to your hubs and pandas kkthxbb

They will. Along with many of those who play GW2.....They will go too. This is the casual game isn't it? You think the average GW2 player is intending on staying dedicated? I don't. They will play WoW to get all those things in MMOs that GW2 didn't incorporate that people still want. And there is a lot. Then they will caome back and play GW2 in their down time.

EDIT:

What some of you GW2 vs BrandX MMO hardcore fans need to realize is that most of us are somewhat more moderate in our dedication and choice of games. For me, I'll have both  Rift and GW2 to play now.

That's what we call Win Win.

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.

Some will surely, but far from all . My guild is full with ex Wow players and most of them actually seems to moved on for good now. That doesnt mean that they neccesarily stay in GW2 but Wow is finally getting so old so it seems like they might move to something new instead.

It must be one or the other! Choose or die!

We don't necessarily pit GW2 against BrandX MMO, but we do get tired of hearing falseties about the game. People spouting nonsense or just blind hatred. If you don't like the game stay out of a forum where people like it. It's just a nuisance. No one is saying that anyone has to like anything, but atleast accept the fact that the game is good and just not your style. The iPhone is a good product, but I'm more of an Android person...I like being able to use my phone as a thumb drive if i have to, or being able to play [almost] any video format so long as I have a player. That argument could be related to this. You may not like GW2 or Arenanet for that matter, but GW2 is still a good product. No need to slight it because you don't like it.

I have a friend who doesn't like GW2 but that's because she's use to playing her shaman in WoW with all of her add-ons, so she can't just stand still and press a few buttons.

What lie are you refering too ? Game is no different than in beta phase any every information released by Anet was true. When some idiot was talking to me about GW being "next generation" and "game like never before" I was asking him WHAT could this game have to be such a thing.

They never knew the answer. GW2 is just a new approach to what we know. And above anything else - successfull approach. They fixed most of my problems I have with MMO genre. That including stupid party system (need to form a party to help each other or join the fight), instances (MMO when you don't play with others is not an MMO), kill and fetch + backtracking (time sing for me), gear grind (game is skill based, thanks for that), crafting and discovering receipes (that was useless in other MMO most of the time - only few games like EVE or Fallen Earth make crafting worth your while) and world vs word (that is present only in few MMO).

They didn't discover America. They too effort to rebuild Europe :)

I did say many and not all. But really, what my point is...There is overlap with these games playerbase. And I suspect that GW2's playerbase will have one of the largest playerbases that it will share with many other games. So the success of GW2 cannot be fully considered. in the GW2 vs WoW sense when talking about numbers as so many will play both.  So for that overlap. Who gets to claim them?

 

I guess what I am saying is, the reality is that threads like these are pointless because no one has all the facts and can speak for an entire playerbase.

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.

Come back on the 25th. I think we might get more accurate projections then.

Usually people are mad at the success when it just wasn't the game for them and they were overhyped or just hoping for the next best thing. I thought I would hate GW2. I bought it cause there aint much to play and oh boy am I in love with this game. 150 hours playe don 1 character so far and not ready to touch an alt yet. GW2 FTW

WE still have to look at both sides of the arguement. 

As much as I cant stand  nonsense tossed around these boards lately, WoW's sales numbers, even if they stagger the imagination, do not mean many of those players won't still play GW2 and WoW for weeks/months/years to come. 

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.

Overzealous fanboys? Best game ever? Confused?

Obviously you're missing the main reason and that's the fact the sheeple consider it to be 'their' game. Much like it was cool to like GW1, it's now cool by those same people to like GW2 - even if they don't like it. Much like hoodies became popular because it was cool to wear them, the Blackberry was the go to phone to have, and the word 'bro' appeared in every sentence because it made you feel special to say it to your friends, the sheeple have decided that GW2 is their new fad.

So even if they like or dislike it, they have to say they like it and defend it as if it were their own, because if they don't then they won't be with the 'in crowd'. This is probably the origin of the first post in this thread, confusion from a 'bro' (note he even uses the word) who doesn't actually like the game, but thinks he has to to fit in. So he asks why people don't like it in the hope that his opinion will be justified and the status quo will switch to where the in-crowd decide it's not worth playing.

These poor sheeple, one day they shall grow and become their own person.. Or they won't. Probably won't. Right bro?

I mean I play WoW now and again but I'm not fanatatical about it but I know lots of people who fall into that catagory.

GW2 has come as a bit of a shock because people are leaving or taking time off WoW to play it .

( of course some negativity comes from people in other games for similar reasons ).

My view is GW2 is the next big mmo . Maybe not WoW big but I would nt be suprised if it sells 3 million in the first quarter . When its released in China that could doube .

Every mmo in existance now thats got a sub is going to take some kind of a hit from it .

in all honesty i expect this game to fail in china, DRASTICALLY fail, too many reasons for this and i know im gonna get rammed by fanbois for it but GW2 just aint the game for chinese market, way to casusal , absolutely no need for gold sellers.... no gear progression the list could go on, its a good game for the western market but i highly doubt china will embrace it at all....korea, japan etc they are not gonna play GW2 either its just way to casual

per MORGAN FREEMAN: America's first black president hasn't arisen yet. He's not America's first black president. He's America's first mixed-race president.

yeah they do. that's why they elected him, because he is a good lier

A MMO is like life. It is something to cherish and enjoy upon in it journey. So why race to the end of it. In life at the end you die.

I completely agree that one of the reasons why people hate something is because it is popular.

BUT its pretty ironic hearing it from the GW2 fanboys that repeatedly hate on Blizzard despite WoW being a great game.

Oh the irony..

i personally dont give a crap if anyone likes it or doesnt like it, if you like it cool lets go play the game and have fun.  If you dont, then i dont really care what you do in your life, go do what YOU want to do not what others think what you need to do.
