I hear people like to use xFire to keep track of how many hours they played. Well, in GW2 you don't need that. Just type /age and you get hours played across all character and how many days has passed since oyu started playing. Only a veeery small minority of players use xfire.

I dont watch the servers for fullness/emptiness but there is generally always a ton of players on and i am still having quite a bit of fun with my original level 80 ranger..

Though after 80 i have become somewhat less exploratory and more of a select location camper/farmer/resource gatherer/tradeskiller out in the field however as i generally dont farm events but will participate in any that cross my path and i enjoy it that way..

This game really needs more level 80 content added in for good measure and more than 3 kinda static world dragons to battle but i am sure anet has already taken that into account..

I would like to see dragons that really dominate the battle area and force players to rethink their every move..

 

Playing GW2..

Now when the rush to 80 crowd has taken a break I find myself grouping a lot more than few weeks ago, population is so spread out and when you ask to group for champs and puzzles I tend to get respons within seconds, It's great.

 

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

What server are you on? i will gladly transfer if response time is in seconds. Because i am getting a little tired of soloing through the zones.

That's interesting since from semi-private playing forum I am on - most people that still play are hardcore.  They have betwen 200-400 hours total.   There was only one hardcore player that had hundreads of played and deciced to go MoP. 

From casuals - with played between 30-100 hours  about half left.   

We had a topic 2 days ago with people posting screen of /age and telling if they still play or not.

% of those who played ALOT that still play is much higher than % of those who played below 100-150 hours and still play.

Because, of course, casuals spend a lot of free time in MMORPG forums, being casual and all that. Right?

 

If you're polling forum goers you've shifted the curve way towards the "hardcore" end of the spectrum. I doubt that of the over two million accounts created any significant percent of the population is actually in these forums as well, and of those of us that are there's a much more significant percent whose hours would classify them as "hardcore" as opposed to "casual".

Oderint, dum metuant.

This. Every forum on this site seems to be full of this attitude. The attitude seems to be "wait, someone logged out? OMGFAIL".

WIth the exception of 2 or 3 servers they are ALL high/full in the US.

 

Even during WOW peak hours.

I guess you all forgot that GW2 is a BTP game....after you buy the box you don't have to pay to get in the game anymore.

Look at Foresaken World's activity....I'm guessing its way more alive than WoW as well...

Your numbers would be much more impressive if you had to pay a monthly fee, especially seeing as this game doesn't lend itself well to longevity.

Far Shiverpeaks.

You see now when people are so spread out and the 80s taking a break It's kinda hard to find groups allready fighting champs like you could before so you just jumped in.

Now I see people writing in chat, need help with troll champ or Blood witch is up, It's fun that people actually grouping up more and not join the zerge and move on.

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

Of course the game is doing well, a game with newbie zones full of active people even during off hours is obviously not about to die.

On my server too, people are very friendly and helpful on chat, in any zone. European server Gandara.

One could easily make the argument that players who are more likely to use Xfire are more likely to be players who hop from major release to release.

And/or that they are the "blitzkrieg 1-80 in 2 weeks and then quit" types.

As you see the game is thriving and doing really well STILL.  The past 2 days I have completed the last of my 1-15 zones for world completion and there are still hundreds if not thousands of general "newbie" questions being asked in those zones.  Which is firther proof that the game is still growing.  Dont despair fans, dont let the haters and detractors change your attitude.

I have to say, Im not trolling, but servers status dont mean active players, the game at the moment is overpopulated by bots, actually you will find that the status dont change at all dont matter what time it is, ¿you know why?, is called bots. I logged yesterday morning, my server were full, but i found just 10 players on the myst, and i cant remember all the bots that i found in the PvE world, it was just insane.  We wont know the truth state of the game if we still have an overpopulation of bots in everysingle server. So ask yourself: Gw2 is really doing fine?

Now this is just silly. You're saying that there are more bots than regular players in GW2? Come on, be realistic. That hasn't been the case in any MMORPG. I've seen bots occasionally, but they were only a fraction of the number of players I encountered, at least on my server. I think that other activity measuring tools confirm that GW2 is still doing ok. It's not at its peak of played hours that it had the first few weeks, but that makes sense too.

I just have a few questions.

What happens when server popularity is based on that server's PVP status? Now what happens when you open up server transfers for free? Is it possible that Arenanet wants to maintain control over the flow of transfers between servers and that they are constantly adjusting the thresholds so that one server doesn't become out of balance while another empties out?

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.

/Facepalm. You do know posting that up is just as stupid as people posting it up for the opposite that a game is dieing. That 'high' message doesn't mean anything at all. Not to mention you can see bot hordes all around the place often making up a majority of a group trying to do some events which in a twisted way helps GW2 look more popular.

Not saying its doing poorly, but putting those pictures of 'population' is a very silly thing to do when it can easily be adjusted to make it look better then it really is. Maybe if it had the actuall # of players on it would actually be worth a gander whether its the game 'dieing' or 'doing good' but still its not really a good indicator.

When someone has real stats on the number of bots, instead of anecdotal evidence, then we can say that the bots are having an impact on how busy the game looks. Until then, it's just more noise, like XFire and honestly, like the server status pages.

The only thing that is relevant is whether or not players are having fun. When you login, are there enough people for you to do whatever it is you want to do. It will be fairly obvious when that no longer happens to me, because the people in my office will no longer be talking about GW2.

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Considering that 95% PvE is soloable from 1-80, I think it only comes down to the fun factor.
