OP  10/27/12 4:25:04 AM#1

GW2 has gotten kinda boring for me.

 

Before I continue, let me say this:

I never thought GW2 would be some kind of MMO revolution. I didn't think it was innovative or anything like that. I knew dynamic events weren't really dynamic.

I knew what I was getting, and I feel I did get my money's worth.

Now that that's out of the way...

 

I'm not 100% sure WHY I've gotten bored of it. It's become like WoW for me; I sorta wanna log in, but I'm not able to bring myself to do so.

It definitely wasn't community, since I generally almost NEVER talk to anyone unless I was really bored. I doubt it was SPvP or WvWvW, because I had never bothered to go in there in the first place.

I eventually came up with only one major reason I could think of that could have contributed to my feeling of ennui towards GW2.

Everything has a feeling of telling you what to do, but at the same time, it feels like there is no definite goal to work towards. The result is a feeling of pointlessness.

Unfortunately, I cannot figure out how to really explain this, and I really need to log off right now, so I'll add more stuff later.

The only cumminty I saw was on the forums, which was lame for an MMO.

Arena Net needs to work on the social aspect of this game, because it is lacking.  This is a key component because it prevents people like you (and me) from logging on.

 

Essentially there is no interaction with other players.  No interaction?  No care.  No hate.  No love. No emotion

 

No emotion means every other player might as well be a NPC, for the good they do.  No emotion also means there is no need to log on.

 

GW2 is a good solo player game though.  The graphics engine is better than SWTOR, which is also a single player game. (both under the guise of an MMO :P )

That...doesn't really have anything to do with my OP. Although I suppose it's still right to some degree.

I think he took it as you saying you dont talk to people in GW2 unless youre bored and didnt understand that you were referring to not talking to people in any game unless youre bored.

The bold writing in the OP tells the true story, it's like a defensive defence, again though, it's a lesson learned. What took only a couple of weeks for some has obviously taken weeks for other to find about about GW2.

Beautiful looking MMO with a very nice graphic engine but the game is soul less and lacks any depth.

Well, I suppose I could have phrased that better.

This is what I meant to say:

"I don't think it is the community that bothers me, since I am generally a person who doesn't talk to other people unless I need something, or if I am just bored, regardless of what game it is. This is not something isolated in GW2 alone; it's how I've always rolled."

this issue is present in all themeparks.. whats the point of getting all that raid gear what do you do with it in raid based games? do more raids? whats the point in grinding out PVP gear in themeparks? stomp on lowbies? again it's really an issue with all themeparks in general.. it's basically themepark burnout..

 

meant ot quote part of the OP oops

it feels like there is no definite goal to work towards. The result is a feeling of pointlessness.

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

Because if I don't bring that up, then certain people would try to spin it as me hating the game, jump at my throat and claims that "Another GW2 fanboy admits he is wrong, and that we are right that GW2 is a shit game" or some bullcrap like that, so I'm getting that out of the way.

And besides, I wasn't lying when I said I never expected GW2 to be a revolution.

That depends on your past attitude towards people who exposed GW2 for what it was weeks ago, you were not rude or accused any of them of being haters or trolls, were you?

Eh, I think I might have been passive aggressive to some people, but I really don't feel like searching through my mountain of a post history.

There are definitely some people I have directly argued with, and one particular person I was really aggressive with.

NO, I have no intention of apologizing to him, because even IF I had agreed with him about GW2, he was still a douche about his opinions, and thus I don't like him.

I'm done with pure 100% Themeparks but not with MMO's.  SWTOR, TSW (I enjoyed this more as a single player game) and GW2 all in a years time have me fried on this style of MMO.  And I think many others are feeling this way as well.  GW2 did some good things (combat, no required quest hubs, and goodish exploration) but not enough to pull it out of the Themepark doldrums.  I don't mind the gear issues people are having I even don't mind gear grinding or grinding in general I just need some freedom/consequences to my actions and some good non combat things to do.

 

It does seem that we are starting to see Devs at least discuss giving us some more freedom and not trying to create everything for us.  TSW and GW2 took some good steps and I expect many more MMO's from here on out to incorporate some of the good from these games, PvE solo difficulty hopefully being one of them.

 

Looks like it's old school MMO time until someone can come up with a good Sandpark or Sandbox with PvE that doesn't suck.

I think you are referring to Spocks post with this? you know no body jumped on his throat simply because he used to be one of the biggest GW2 fans? i could care less who likes or dislikes the game. But the reason why he got so many responses was because he used to tell the same people that they are haters and negative nancies  for puting forward similar concerns which mirrored his OP.

If you never put labels on anyone in past for simply voicing their concerns regarding boredom with GW2 and its short comings you got nothing to worry about. I know there are lot of people who hate for the sake of hating but not everybody is completely irrational here.

Just put yourself in shoes of all those people who simply wanted to share their experince and got flamed by fans like Spock just because well their feelings were on negative side.

i will agree the 100% themepark days are coming to an end.. i myself can never see myself pouring 1000s of hours into a themepark ever again i just don't see the point.. I will play them if I enjoy them then stop.. i really see no point in grinding out something for months and months whether it be top tier raid gear or a legendary weapon in any themepark game anymore.. i used to have the drive but no more.. but I won't call a game crap or pointless because of this.. i play what I enjoy and when I stop enjoying said game I will stop playing.. I'm not the type to blast through content either and usually takes me many months to reach cap in games that take others on a few weeks... i see people saying they have 500+ hours in GW2 with multiple 80s.. it will take me probably a year to do that.. again though i think many are just burnt out on the 100% themepark design but saying any game sucks just for this fact is ridiculous to me

Going by that you can't blame them for calling you out or mocking you considering your attutude towards them. 

So are you are troll for posing about the same things you accused them of being trolls for?

You see, it's that H word again isn't it.

Anyway i guess itr's on to another forum for you, let's hope you keep your hype gland in check this time.

It's boring because it's a soulless themepark, with no real world, or social interaction to speak of. Developers have to learn that these games will continue to fail until they build actual WORLDS to inhabit, and tools to make your OWN enjoyment. Not rides that have a set duration and ending. Of course it's boring, because you "finish" it, and theres nothing left to do after that.

I never accused them of being trolls or haters. I just argued with them on why I didn't want certain things to be put into the game because of how tired I was of those particular mechanics. Some more aggressively than others granted, but I rarely said much beyond that.

Also why do you assume I was under the hype spell? I knew what I was getting into.

meant ot quote part of the OP oops

it feels like there is no definite goal to work towards. The result is a feeling of pointlessness.

I don't want or need raiding in order to get my carrot, but I want that carrot none the less.

I just finally got my ranger to 80 in GW2. I do want the end game gear with karma but idk...I want something more. I kinda agree with the OP. I still log into the game however I don't power through it like I do other MMOs. Not sure what that means though. Hm I think perhaps I will level something else. I wish the classes were a bit more traditional that is about the only thing I have even a slight issue with.

 

Now let's see...I also play Rift and I am getting into it again before Storm legion hits. However I like to level my characters up in any MMO. That is the fun part for me, the character I create. I still have yet to create that memorable character in GW2. Something about the professions does it to me I think. I just played an elementalist and I am liking that so far. I think I will play them all to level 10 and see where it goes after that.

 

Oh I do have a question though...are there any MMO's out at the moment with great character growth. I like Rifts and WoW's. I love getting gear and doing dungeons and loot. I was thinking maybe EQ2 however I'm not sure of the population on that game.

 

Anyone have any ideas?

Of course it's boring, because you "finish" it, and theres nothing left to do after that.

Like I said in my OP, I rarely socialize, so I'm not sure that's what bugs me.

Although the part about "tools to make your own enjoyment" does kinda explain why I can come back to Terraria so often...

that's the thing though GW2 has plenty of what you would call "carrots" but in the end it's the same issue any other themepark has once you get your "carrot" what do you do with it? that's the issue I have people bashing GW2 for this although it's an issue with the themepark subgenre itself not GW2

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
