becuase in that example there all going to work, lets say I am in crowd at baseball stadium you chat up a 100 different people your all there for the same reason to have fun watch a game, you talk to the guy next to you man did you see that catch. he goes no shit that was awesome.

There is no banter in this game. Its like a daily grind do this do that no talking . I no fun, Skyrim is more socialy engaging.

Cool. I have plenty of conversations in game no matter how small or drawn out. I approach random people and strike up a conversation. Must be doing it wrong. But in all seriuosness this is a stupid complain. The game not being social, and all.

its not close to a stupid complaint, the idea that a huge mmo has little social acitivity? Or that it feels quiet. I might as well just play a straight up single player rpg. Otherwise whats the point, its not like the single player in this fun. In rift wow, eve, swtor, aoc etc, If was to ask in general whats the best crafting profesion a debate starts, in this game silence for 5 minutes then if I am lucky I get doesnt matter. from the responses on this I get people who play this game are kinda of assholes and in general are unfirendly people.

I just started that same conversation you just mentioned in map chat in divinitys reach and...*gasp* people started talking about it. And I'm sure it will spiral into a debate of which gives teh most exp or whatever. So your server isn't all that chatty. Cool story. It's nice that you think everyone is an asshole though. I'm sure the thousands of people you haven't met yet are happy to know what you think. Either that or they don't care because they don't know you. Nice generalization there. I'm glad you can take an insult that's meant for a single person and spread it across thousands.

If you want to have a group & have a social experience in GW2 you need a guild, you need to do dungeons. The open-world game is for mindlessly zerging around, it is the quintessential essence of massively single-player refined into an art-form.

Humans have not yet evolved a truly engaging hive-mind so zerging is always going to be unsatisfying because there's just zero real interaction going on, you are all sharing the virtual space co-operatively, but if you vanished nobody would bat an eyelid.

True. DE's are social by proximity.

Like going to the mall or some concert event. There is a good chance other then those you go with if you do and the vendors themselves, even though there are many people all around, very few others are talking amongst themselves. And for very sound reasons mostly.

The same has been true in MMORPGs since... the beginning?

Even the sandboxes and forced-grouping games of old - interacting with the community was up to YOU the player.

This truth is probably the ONE case where it is both 100% correct and justified to say "it's not the game, it's you."

You left TERA for a better game. 

I'm sorry that this is your experience, I'm on Seafarers rest and only this morning I played for 2 hours before work and I party'd up with somebody via mapchat to do an event, then we linked up with two other people, did some exploring, and some other events, now they are on my friends list.

Then I grouped with some other people and we took some big guy down in Celadon Forest. 

So far, I'm finding it the most social game I've played, not just that, but I think the revive mechanic is resulting in people interacting with the game world and each other in a different, more positive manner. 

The game I did not think I would buy this year has turned into the best MMO so far.

Wow another "GW2 is the most anti social game" thread really?  Again how is it the games fault that you do not interact with the people around you?   Why do you have to have a "NEED" to interact with someone in order to interact with them?  Correct me if I am wrong but this really sounds like a "YOU" problem.  If you do not interact with anyone and/or try to be social with others, then why do you expect them to be social with you?  It will always amaze me the people who get on here and cry about lack of socialization but yet they are not putting in any effort on their side.  Its like they join a game solo with no friends and somehow expect the game to provide them with friends.  I have been playing with the same core group of players in one form or another through various games since Vanguard.  There have been games that I played that they didnt and vice versa but even then we stay in contact through vent/mumble/TS etc even while playing other games.  The best way to not have to solo in a MMO is to find a guild/group of people you like to play with and actually stick it out with them.  Because to be honest if you join a MMO solo not sure why you expect the game to provide you with friends to play with.  Just like in RL you have to actually go out and make friends, they are not provided with the box or digital download.  Seems like all these "GW2 IS ANTI SOCIAL" cry babies want a guild and a friend list to come with the game purchase.

If you have played MMO's for any period of time then you should have np finding a guild.  Guilds are relentlessly recruiting in new games before and after release.  I mean realistically there is no reason anyone should ever "HAVE" to start a MMO without a guild.  Every game ever released has had guilds preping and recruiting long before the game launches.  If you make no effort to be social what in the hell makes you think you are so great that people will line up to group and/or play with you.  Here is a novel idea take control and responsiblity of your gaming life and go make friends, join  a guild and meet new people.  And if you don't like the first guild or anyone in it keep looking till you find the right fit for you.  Because lets be realistic if you are playing a game with 100's of thousands up to millions of people playing the same game and you are unable to find 1 or more people to befriend and play with I would have to declare you are the anti-social one and not the game.

I have to agree to some extent, I've tried a few times to be chatty and open...all I get is some anti-social people who drop group asap or are dead silent. Map channel is silent as hell. Hell Ive tried to liven it up after getting sick of endless silence. It's like the ability to chat and create a community died or something.It's just deteriorated since Everquest. I'll try my luck elsewhere and move servers probably.

 I feel like I am playing a solo game.

I havent played a solo rpg in like 10 yrs and this aspect of GW2 is driving me absolutly crazy. I play MMO's to interact and overcome challenges with like minded players I meet in game.

I left TERA for this?

I like the games asthetics and artwork but this lack of any social interaction is killing me and I see myself going back to TERA pretty soon now.

There is just really not much point in lvling to 80 if I am doing it without mingling with a single real life human being?

Is this what our society has become? Anti social freAKS THAT ARE HATING ON EVERY OTHER HUMAN BEING ON THE PLANET? iT'S BAD ENOUGH driving around in my car and observing how pissed off about 90% of everyone I meet is but it should be different in an mmo game where everyone is expected to have fun in an online game.

ANyone else feel this way.

I am not in a guild yet so hopefully when and if I get in one this will change or it will sadly be uninstalled and sold to a friend.

BS... In dungeons I need to comunicate more then every other game I have played and outside, well its your choice to stay alone or to play with others.

GW2 is the most Themeparked game ever created. And just like a real theme park there is no reason to talk to anyone that is not in the group you went to the park with. Sure you might say hello and smile at a few strangers while waiting in line for a ride, but the only people you actually communicate with are the family and/or friends you went with. GW2's problem is that large percentage of the players went to the park alone, hoping that someone would want to talk to them, only to find out that no one does.

 

Nice analogy but doesn't fit GW2.  There is no other game out there right now that provides as much player interaction while you adventure.  If you don't believe me think of how many people have revived or rezed you while doing an event.  Or read the tooltips on almost all abilities with boons attached to them.  See the part that says "allies"? They aren't talking about just group mates.  The reason you'll probably never have conversations with the people you're doing events with is there is usually something going on around the bend.  If you want structured socializing you need to do it yourself.

 

There are angles to come at GW2 on but it's social aspect is not one of them.

 

GW2 is in direct competition with SWTOR for on rails gameplay. I cant decide which game is more linear, haha.

 

The OP is right, no one talks in GW2. This is a serious blow to the genre, IMO and really saddens me. You have got to be delusional "Player interaction?" player interaction doesnt include everyone zerging at a DE event. Sorry buddy.

If thats what "player interaction" means now, the genre has truly lost its way.

Player interaction is much more than that. Or at least, it used to mean that.

Oh and the "get a guild" excuse is laughable. Half the time, I would join a guild that I MET IN GAME THROUGH SOCIALIZING. That doesnt happen in GW2.

And why should a guild be a prerequisite for sociaizing anyway? If it was, it would form a cliquey, segregated game.

This saddens me.

I can't speak for anyone else but given Arenanet's willingnes to ban players for saying anything less than pc and there heavy handed forum moderation, I'm actually reluctant to say anything in open chat for fear of losing my account.
Perhaps I'm not the only one with that fear in the back of their mind.

Honestly, if you can write like this without freaking out or using obscenities, I think you're preeeeeeeeeetty safe.

Enter a whole new realm of challenge and adventure.

Wow that's completely the opposite of my reaction to the game. It feels to me like everyone is automatically grouped and chatting together in map chat. You run across someone that needs help and you help them out or rez them if they need it. The people are definitely a lot friendlier in this game as well.

Joining a guild is one of the first things that I did (I think on day 2). So I think that's what you are missing. When you do join a guilt, don't forget to click on represent so you can actually talk to them.

It's a solo game that doesn't know it yet, kinda like Diablo 3. Even in Spvp joining with friends means fighting against them half the time. I don't think it's really overhyped so much as overrated.

People are helping me out all the time. Rezzing me if I need it, jumping in to help me with a mob, forming ad-hoc groups to assault tough areas. Very friendly. They don't talk too much, but then I don't either. Mostly because I am having too much fun to type. :P

 Your in game experience seems completely opposite of mine and I play the game from 1Am EST until maybe 3AM due to work schedule. Even at that time I find plenty of chat going on in different places. Then again i dont assume everyone else is unfriendly and an asshole, your problem finding friends might be rooted right there.

Why don't u guys calling it unsocial, try playing with real life friends.......

And also, do you really have to group to be social, like just follow the pack of players and do stuff....
