OP  9/19/12 7:08:01 PM#1

In the fourth in our ongoing Review in Progress, we take a look at Guild Wars 2 and its unique concept for massive scale PvP. Is it as unique as it purports to be? Is it functioning as it should? Find out in our latest Review in Progress. Leave us your WvW thoughts in the comments.

Remember how I was bemoaning the plight of those on high population servers in Guild Wars 2 last week? I was whining about the fact that Jade Quarry’s queue times were too long, and that I’d had trouble actually getting into WvW? I was even toying with the idea of temporarily changing servers to a less PVP-active one so that I might get some time in and review WvW. Lo and behold, just a day later I was in the Borderlands and the Eternal Battlegrounds getting face-rolled by Henge of Denravi and Stormbluff Isle’s unified front.  And I liked it.  I spent most of this week in different Borderlands and the Eternal Battlegrounds. Heck, I didn’t even need to do what Mike Feguson suggested either in his recent blog update

First off, I'm no PvPer. I'm fine with group battles and such, but for the most part I avoid it.

 

But let me say this: the rampant "exploitation" of the server transfers, or whatever, which has led to "spys" "subterfuge" and all that jazz is AWESOME. I think its a cool mechanic that should be pushed to its limits by the players.

 

 

I'm sure that this is, in fact, the correct way to PvP in GW2.

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

Good review. 

 

Your feeling of "is it enough." is warrented. I hit a wall after alot of WvW hours (I was able to sit in the 3 hour queues >.<) played during the first three weeks. That left me asking "What for." 

 

Seems like there needs to be ranks or something, or an expanding of the skill system. 

 

For the record the garbage that's going on is not ok. Even if Anet says it is.

 

When I eat chocolate chip pie it just doesn't feel like chocolate chip cookies. The texture, the consistency, it's just not the same and this is disappointing.

The problem with cheating is the mechanics are in favor of the cheater.

1. they take up a queue spot

2. you cant cant kill them

3. if you expose them they can create infinite alts

4. they can lock down seige weps with no way to kick them off

 

This is not real life. This is a game, and games have rules to ensure a fun and competitive atmosphere where people play with sportsmanship. THis is why you cant horsecollar a football player or excessivly celebrate, or take a dive in sports. AN wants this to be an esport, and there is no sport on earth where spying is allowed.

Now, if you want to make this a full loot, permadeath game with friendlyfire, then we will be happy to sort the problem out ourselves.

I have barely touched WvW thus far but based on my experiences in beta the limited time during live, it's a lot of fun.

I am probably going to level to 80 first in PvE and get myself some good gear before I start hitting WvW hard, but that's mostly due to my competitive nature - I hate losing so I want to make sure my toon is "ready" before stepping into the competitive arena(s) of Gw2.

But yeah, paid for world transfers and timers/limits will stop the spying game entirely. The game hasn't even been out for a month (close now!) once the full 2 week rotations are in and transfers cost $ these kinds of issues will be very, very minor ones.

Jebus you're milking the hell out of this review, the game isn't even that great.  You guys must realize there is absolutely nothing worthwhile on the horizon.

WvW was never meant to be an e-sport. sPvP is and that has no gear/level progression at all, it's a whole other game essentially.

We did the same for TSW and TERA, and will do this for all major AAA MMOs in th future.  Even did one for D3.

You are correct. About the only thing on the horizon is expansions. Maybe in a few months, we'll see something new and worthwhile. But for the present, GW2 is pretty all they have to talk about and so they do.  FWIW, I'm in agreement with you -- I didn't think it was all that great and haven't felt compelled to even log in for the last two weeks.

WVW is no where near like DAOC RVR not in the least.

Do we have bard's  for group speed groups nope '

 

Do we have massive battles with hundereds of players per side nope only around 20-30

 

Do we have healers to heal and remove the CC nope

 

Do we have a large map nope we have a ok size map not large in anyway

 

Do we have a darkfall that we fight for to get the best farming and lvling not to mention tokens for gear from darkfall only nope

 

DO we have realm pride or in the case server pride nope

 

In what way is this like DAoC OUTSIDE SEGING AND daOc IS NOT THE ONLY GAME WITH THAT JUST ONE OF THE 1ST.

Arenanet’s official response to Azure was:

“Although it might be bad sportsmanship, espionage and sabotage are legitimate tactics in any combat based game. We would not consider the use of these tactics to be a violation. Please let us know if you have any further questions.”

 

tells alot about arena net,imagine Counter Strike where its considered pro tactic when opponent joins your team and shoots his teammates in the head and flashbangs all and kills all hostages you should be saving.

amazing stuff.

you have several classes that can provide full AOE speed buffs

consistantly have had at least 50vs50 battles not sure what you are talking about

 

Do we have healers to heal and remove the CC nope

you have support specs to remove CC so basically works the same so yes

 

Do we have a large map nope we have a ok size map not large in anyway

MAPS are HUGE especially for no mounts... people are already complaining of having to walk to far

 

Do we have a darkfall that we fight for to get the best farming and lvling not to mention tokens for gear from darkfall only nope

 

DO we have realm pride or in the case server pride nope

 realms are still being ranked but seen plenty of realm pride even Bill sees this as he mentioned in his review

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

"The bonuses are great and all, but just like The Secret World, I’m stuck wondering if it’ll be enough in the long haul."

 

That is the general problem with the entire game in general.  Its fun, its new and shiny..but once you've satisfied the apparent requisite to be a completionist..you'll see that the game lacks meat on its bones.  Unfortunately, despite being innovative in various areas, they seem to think that completely omitting forms of progression that other games have makes them different and superior, when in fact people are leaving in droves because of that alone.  There's nothing to work towards.  Having a pretty equipment skin =/= long term satisfaction.

For me (I know not for everyone), World vs world is the BEST part of GW2 (but I also really like sPVP), because I come from other games that had massive world pvp or such. Arenanet has been adjusting the WvW zones and caps lately and I'm a little annoyed by the queue (couldn't even get in at all last night), hopefully they'll smooth things out where all the players can get in and fix the matchups, right now my server is well over 200K while other 2 are 60K and 40K.

Just to let you know the person who placed the siege weapon can kick anyone off their siege weapon at will.  You do however raise the point about a que spot.  It is ofcouse possible that a massive alliance could drasticaly reduce the number of players in a battle ground however a couple of spies does not make a difference in a fight.  There should however be a way to report someone as a spy and have aNet check it out and kick them back to the server they are spying for. Once sever transfers cost real money this could be a very interesting dynamic.  Then i could see the best spies who have infiltrated alliances hiring out their services for a lot of gold because of the high risk that once your caught you cant do it anymore.  This could be an awesome dynamic with a little thought put into it.

I refuse to participate in a game that allows cheating and exploits. So I guess I will limit myself to PvE and then move on to another game.

 

Other people may think it's cool and a part of the game, but when there are no counter measures to combat these cheats and exploits, it's is not cool and part of the game. Enjoy your broken, ruined WvW.

Que times are a little over 4 days away from being fixed thanks to world of warcrafts new expansion coming out Mists of Pandaria. As far as realm pride... Anyone can hop on the JQ wagon and ride on through, I feel no realm pride and there is no sense of satisfaction. I kill stuff take over keeps, get gear.... I'm not feeling the realm pride, there would be more if I had more control over the entire realm, but that would require more work than a full time job and no thanks on that. Wvw is the most uncompetitive pvp environment all time, don't really see any reason for realm pride.

here is the thing about the spy thing, THERE IS NO WAY TO STOP IT!

I had 2 friends in my old DAoC guild who were roomies at Cal Tech, one had a account with the Middies the other had a account with Hibernians. Their computers were 4 feet apart, guess what they did? I have 4 computers in my house and without a monthly fee it is no issue to have up to 4 GW2 accounts going at once. WvW just isn't that important to me, but I am sure others feel differently

ANet can't stop this from happening, get used to it

i stopped reading after you endorsed exploting.

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.
