Not sure why attacking men constructed of straw is so appealing to so many people, but there it is.

Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

Id say WoW is an "overwhelming success"...GW2 has been out a couple weeks.With this mentality Rift,ToR,War,AoC, were overwhelming successes as well.

It still doesn't change the fact that many people still feel (That's the key word) lied to.
You know, for once, I "feel" that a company stayed very close to their claims, hype and promises. Everything that was said about GW2 is there in one form or the other. 

Take SWTOR for example. There was some freaking features on the box that we're not even in the game at release lol. 

Just imagine the guy that buys the game only to realize that 45% of the box is description is lying... 


ArenaNet has done a remarkable job trying to maintain their integrity and stay true to their promices. I will give Kudos for that.

But, the hype for this game brought the definition of ridiculous to new levels. And all the lines that defined GW2's features became blurred and distorted. And if someone dared interject a levelheaded "Hey wait a minute" opinion, they were squelched. In the end, I think it was the hype train that lead to the recent rash of negative posts. And ultimately, this makes ArenaNet a bit of a victim as well.

For many on this forum, arrogance breeds discontent. In my opinion, none have been more arrogant about their game than GW2 fans. A statement such as, "If you don't like this game, you're doing it wrong." is the very definition of an arrogant fan taking an overzealous stance about a subjective experience.

Success? In the short term, yes. Overwhelming success? There's that arrogance again.

I don't think people are really upset about the success or failure of the game. I think people are just rubbed the wrong way by fans screaming nanananabooboo at the top of their lungs.

I don't know, I'm old enough to not give two shits and I just play and enjoy and praise the games I like. But, got to admit, it is fun to dog on games I find extremely lackluster - it's only human to get that feeling of "wow that is so obviously bad/terrible how can these people like this? I MUST try and help/educate them on why I'm right and they are wrong." We're all just human...

I am MORE curious as to why people who don't like the game feel the need to go to the GW2 forums and bash the game.  If not bash, then express their negative take on the game.  Is it to make themselves feel better about what they feel was a bad purchase?

I just move onto the next thing.

A few games I ended up ditching were WOW (in first 2 months) and SWTOR (after 3 months).  Never once did I feel the need to go to those forums to express the reasons I didn't like the games.  I made the buy, I lived with the result.  Many people like those games, so be it.

For some reason on these forums though, we have a lot of people who take time out of their lives to put down a game that is obviously already hugely popular and liked by many.  I don't think this is limited to GW2 in any way.

I agree with the OP on this one, it's an interesting phenomenon and seems strange someone would spend their time focusing more on the negative rather than just moving on.

 

-briz

It's a forum for discussion.

What you see as "bashing" is people stating what they feel is wrong with the game and it's features/mechanics.

Also, we are gamers. We want good games to actually play. We want innovation, something that's different, good quality, etc.

GW2 matches that for you? That's great, then go play it. We're not here bashing. We are having discussions. Are most of them negative? Probably, but then again, to many, an actually good mmorpg as yet to arrive.

Many here await Archeage, like myself, for the possible long awaited sandbox. If it works, we'll be too busy playing aswell. Until then, we also like to talk about the genre, what we think is wrong, what could be better, etc.

But hey, it's not like tons of mmos are failing, closing down, loosing money, merging servers, not having long lasting appeal, and could go on.

Of course, it's just hating and bashing with no foundation. I like to post and comment on positive and negative topics. That is why i signed up.

I can certainly agree with that sentiment.  However, I don't think the majority of the millions of people enjoying GW2 care what a "hater" thinks.  Some do but most don't.  They are too busy playing and enjoying the game.  I certainly don't care about the feelings of an insect I squash and that is exactly the way I see a hater.  Makes a buzzing noise and certainly can be a nuisance, but I bought some raid.

 

Edit:  Oh oh...that came off as a bit arrogant.

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.

no one is being lied to. the game delivered exactly what was promised. if not more. and it is the Obama of MMo's, to be perfectly honest. u cant deny that. 

Seeing the track record of Obama these past years I am not sure I would want people comparing my game to that pile of s**t.

I think people are upset that the game really, at the core, has not changed much. They say they got rid of quest hubs, well, just run to the next heart on your map. That heart not only replaces the exclamation point but it is in essence a quest hub. They said dynamic events would have an impact. How can they have an impact when you can stand  there and do the same ones over and  over?

You can use different words to cover up the fact that you are rehashing the same old thing, kind of like unemployment dropped for one month and that is a great sign that the economy is picking up, until you see that for the past 43 months unemployment has not fallen under 8%, although it was promised by Obama that it would.

I guess in that sense then yes, GW2 IS the Obama of the MMO world.

Add in the fact of the hacking problems and it is no wonder some people are not singing the praises. You just need to be a little open minded and you will see these problems for what they are. You will also see these people as not attacking the game but raising concerns that are legit.

Then again after dealing with this community I am not holding out hope that anyone of them could be unbiased OR open minded...

Ofc you also have people who don't hate the game but find it highly amusing to windup and make fun of people who make threads such as this, purely because they find the reactions humerous ..

GW2 is popular for all the wrong reasons.

It wowifies the genre even further while also bringing the "Buy everything through RMT" to western mmorpgs.

 

The genre is getting WORSE and WORSE by the minute.

The majority of people playing all mmorpgs don't care for either haters or fanboys or forum discussions. Regardless, the games still have their own flaws, problems, not so awesome features, and failing to generate profit. What's your point?

We're here to discuss and debate. Welcome to the internet. If people only see these things as mindless bash and hate fests, that's their problem.

What overwhelming success? The game has already peaked 8 days after its release. It's all downhill from here on.

peaked according to who? you?

I agree with this. The most used word was "innovating". Then they list some innovating features and let me repeat those:

  • Downed State : seen in Darkfall
  • Dynamic Events : seen in Rift (and even in some way the worldbosses on pvp servers in WoW)
  • Dodging : seen in TERA
  • Manual Aiming : seen in TERA and Darkfall (and what I heard from guildies is that most attacks are tab targetted in GW2)
Okay maybe the removal of the "Holy Trinity". But hey in Darkfall you would use your self-heal and never really relied on dedicated healers. 
 
Guildwars 2 a good game. Yes, I believe so. Enough players are enjoying it. The savior of the mmo-industry? Don't know. GW2 is certainly not aiming at me. Maybe it could have lured me in like 4 years ago. Now I look for different features, more sanbox and less themepark:
 
  • World PvP, no lobby pvp (like arenas)
  • Player Housing or Guild Halls (cities)
  • Niche character builds
  • Friendly Fire
  • Manual Aiming
  • Limited amount of resources (players/guilds have to fight for good locations)
So maybe you understand now why I am passing on GW2 or at least waiting till it is 5 euro in the discount-bin.

LOL I've actually seen that said to folks but it was in the TSW forums ...I' don't understand why someone who doesn't play GW2 would care what was said one way or the other .If the op posted  in some others game forums it might be a debate and a little arrogant ...but posting in GW2 forums about GW2 seems normal enough for me .

I missed that gem on first read.

You're right, its "above average" but its not "EPIC" the game just came out and you're still drunk. Even I said SWTOR was "epic" 4 weeks in and so did SOOOOOOOO many others....but it actually was the worst ever. So ya. Take a breathe, remove this post and reconsider reposting it after 3 months.

When you compare GW1 and GW2 and take yers in the middle you cant realy say GW2 is EPIC.

Only thing that is EPIC about GW2 is the man power and marketing used to fool ppl and misled them. 

I have newer ever saw such a HYPE about any MMORPG and brutal attitude of the web sites (MMORPG is included) that literaly band anyone who said anything bad about GW2, that were making so much articles only giving + and not a single - to a game.

Game is generaly Good and only better then GW1 and Aion and that is a true fact.

There is nothing new or revolutionary in it. 

ONE fact:

80% you spend in combat while playing the game and on that field there is nothing new, not only that everything has beed seen in any other MMORPG but it have lot of flaws even there.

People say WOW made standard in there cause it was the only game so it was easy to put standard even that is not good?? OK, fair enough. But why after almost 8 years no one made combat system better that much that we can call it EPIC or revolutionary.

From my point only TERA made interesting combat system and Secret World made big freedom in aranging your playstyle, but no one gave big colums about that at all.

Now about braking holy trinity..... seriously !!!

We have: Tank, Healer and DPS

GW2 made big break and have: Control, Support and DPS and how we call that?????

In holy trinity you realy have a roll in their revolutionary system you have headles chicken that is bouncing trough the party (like when your tank is dead and mobs are running around and killing the rest of the party).

Basicly, everyone have a self heal, everyone is tank, dps and support and you need to keep YOURESLF not to be hit and rez the guy next to you for the 7th time during the fight cause he cant move from fire.

If you exclude PvP you realy do not need to be part of any group do do things in game even in party in dungeon you feel that you must only take care about yourself.

I cant call that a good thing but that is my personal opinion.
