I agree with everything you said, OP. The main reason I stopped playing the game, is that there is nothing to do in it. I don't care for the psuedo-content filler fluff crap. I want hard, legit content. I don't want to run a nintendo style dungeon, I don't want any sort of non-combat items as a reward, and I don't want achievements. What I want is to raid.

When they demolished the MMO Trinity of Healer, Tank and DPS, they really crucified themselves in that aspect. Not having definitive roles is an abomination. Aside from the fact that you can't really do much at level 80 aside from meaningless trifles, such as 100% World Completion which is just a joke to me, and other meaningless crap, each class only has a handful of skills. I don't want 5 skills and a few 'utility' abilities along with a laughable "elite" skill. I want several dozen abilities and macros of my various skills to use. Sure, some classes had two weapon slots, but not all of them. And even at that point the amount of abilities you had was depressing. Looking at screenshots of my Rogue, I had... 30 different spells and abilities on my hotbar, excluding Trinkets, racials and Macros. I used about 80% of them in any average fight. 

I don't know, I really wanted to like this game, but it feels like a pretend game almost, like it's only to be played for killing time and jumping puzzles and mystic forging..... It was fun, I made two 80s (one out of rage/spite) and a few other high level characters, but it just wasn't fun too me after everything was said and done.

Nice necro of a post... if you dont like it, move on. Its really amazing how upset people are on how different GW2 actually is, all they can do is hate...

Ive been playing since the first beta weekend with 1500 hours played now. Ive loved every moment and enjoy pushing the living story content, its very good. Hate all you want, there is NO company delivering content as often and adding a lot of new systems. By the way, the Achievement Reward system is very impressive!

Enjoy whatever game you enjoy and just continue to hate the fact GW2 is very successful. Ill enjoy my bi weekly updates :)

Disregarding the necro; I actually agree with most of the concerns the OP has regarding GW2.

 

When me and my friends at launch finally got ourselves into the same instance. We quickly realized that the element of teamplay wasn't really there. I mean, there are a few abilities that work together with others but there isn't much more than that. Without the role of having a dedicated tank, healer and dps none of us felt like we had a specific role in the group. We all just played our game of DPS-Evade-DPS-Evade-DPS-Evade, rinse and repeat untill the instance is done. For us being a very tight-knit group of players whom been together since the very early days of MMOs we quickly grew bored of them. We want to engage ourselves as a group, overcome challanges with the help of our experience as a group working together. We had very little of that in the few runs of instances we had.

 

I love GW2 as a RPG-like game, but it just doesn't cut it for me as an MMO.

This is not a GW2 fansite. People are free to post criticism for the game as many times as they like as long as they keep it civil and do not break TOS. You have a choice to not read it instead of reading it and then complain about people who dislike GW2.

agree with the OP. I never reached level cap in any game as quickly as GW2. Even SWTOR had more staying power than this train wreck. I disagree with OP as far as graphics, I thought they were muted and dull in comparison to less current games like Tera and RIft.

I really enjoyed playing GW2 when I did.  It offered something different for me.  I haven't played in months, but if friends are willing to hop back on it, I see no hurdles in going back to it.

Considering the fact that this was the fourth Post on the front page of the forum, I would hardly consider it a necro... But yeah, it was getting dusty. I came, I spoke, and now people are getting butthurt about it. Seems to be the typical trend on these forums. People don't like what you have to say and they get upset and lash out in one way or another.

Of what forum? GW2 forum? I find this really hard to believe considering the post before yours was 5 months prior to you posting... lol

So, despite being wholly against almost every one of their majorly hyped pre-launch features, stuff that was explicitly stated years before the game came out, you really wanted to like this game? At no point would this game have ever been for you if you're as vehemently opposed to those systems as your post suggests.

The reviews and impressions forum unlike the GW 2 general forum does not get a lot of traffic. Check it for yourself the first page has threads which have their last post in February.

SO Elikal, you say GW2 is too hard, other people say its beyond faceroll easy. And people complain mmos are easy. ANd you saying its hard enough to make you quit. Whats going on with gamers these days? easy games are bad, and hard games are also bad?

 

I know its your OP post is your opinion only, but the reasons you gave as let downs are the major reasons why i prefer GW2 over the rest of the mmos.  I love the combata system more than the rest. I prefer their "lack" of trinity over the tank n spank in every single other mmo out there. Nobody else wanted to get away from guest hub linear paths to leveling. Rift did try with invasions and rifts but did it very poorly. ANET needs to improve their DE but they are far superior than the other games taht are doing them now, and much better than the traditional quest hub from A to B to C to D. Also, While they could add new stuf for lvl 80 (no wow end game grinding mechanics), i am ok with the route they are taking with the game.

 

Its clearly not for you, that is fine. But dont expect it to become just another generic mmo. TOo many of those that dont like to take risks to be different and most are bad.

My endgame begins with character creation and ends with a new mmorpg

Emphasis on *for me*. I have no clue how active people are in general. Tho I'd like to know.

Really, it was just a short lived experienced, strangely even MUCH shorter than ANY other big MMO of the last years. Heck, I played SWTOR 4-5 months before I really had enough. Here, after 6 weeks I really began to feel tired and bored. I mean, don't get me wrong, visually and by design this is probably THE most beautiful game world, at least in fantasy. But so much other stuff just didn't work for me. I can just sum up some impressions.

 

- COMBAT SYSTEM: While I enjoyed the fresh and different feeling at first a lot, the longer I played the more bored I felt. In some way, most classes played way too similar. For instance, a WOW Druid or Mage REALLY play different. Not to speak of their various specializations. In GW2 a Warrior and Vanguard doesn't feel different, and even a Thief and a Ranger feel just a bit different. Not really overmuch. The few skills you have really limit the variaty, and I miss my 3-4 full skillbars and the many options how to fight. Any char loses health WAAAY too fast, so it forces you to lolcopter and evade, which over time just began to get on my nerves and making me feel weak.

 

- LACK OF TRINITY: Yeah I am an outspoken fan of the Trinity, because I love the REAL cooperation of teams it allows. Any other jack-of-all-trade system like GW2 never ever worked creating good teamplay. There isn't much in terms of social gameplay experience either. *shrug*

 

- EVENTS: At first this event system really looked pleasing and fun. But again, over time I began to feel dull and nauseated. I really stopped caring for the story, and just realized I was simply grinding that damn bar that filled as I did whatever the "event" told me to. I never thought I say that, but I actually miss real quests. Somehow I can't help but think a real quest can bring more diversity that these "fill bar X while doing Y" event stuff. Events would have been good additionally, like the Rifts. But as the sole system I found them too weak. And the events don't create any social experience either. Unlike in Rift people are not grouped and thus not inclined to do stuff together still. Everyone just silently works "together" a while and then runs off.

 

- BORING ENDGAME: As ever so often, GW2 didn't make much better endgame. I like the open world WvW a lot, but how long can you conquer the same castle over and over until it gets old? The last 20 level zones are tough, some impossible to solo, and I felt like I was way too easy overpowered by mobs. So endgame felt more like a chore to me. I wasn't even able to finish my stories, because in the last level the story instances are too tough for me, and nobody ever joined me to help. :/

 

*shrug* If you enjoy the game, thats really fine. But I am really let down. MORE than by SWTOR to be honest. I am not that angry because I was a huge Star Wars fan, and I never cared that much about GW2. I really wanted to like it, and at first I was totally thriled. But the longer I played the more I got bored, and I really never got bored THAT fast than with GW2. Just my two cents.

You are literally the worst kind of mmo player out right now. It's the WoW fanboys like you that have really killed this genre. Your whole post is "this isn't like WoW and I don't like." I don't like GW2 either but because it's a bad name, not because it's not wow. Please save us the trouble and leave this genre

Same here.  I really enjoyed it and it did offer me quite a journey that lasted longer then most MMO's do these days.  Sadly I left but the rest of this year is looking very bright and I see myself jumping back in when they introduce the new skill acquisition patch and dungeon finder.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

 Pretty much dead on IMO.  Same for me when it comes to FFXIV, I personally loathe the game and that is only after a few hours in a beta weekend.  You'll never see my buying the game and then turn around a few weeks later and bash it.  I can bash the game quite fine without having to give square enix my money.

Same here.  I really enjoyed it and it did offer me quite a journey that lasted longer then most MMO's do these days.  Sadly I left but the rest of this year is looking very bright and I see myself jumping back in when they introduce the new skill acquisition patch and dungeon finder.

I too want to see what they do.

However, I am also not forgetting how we heard so much good stuff in the Manifesto and most of that was exaggerated at best. So I'm not getting hopes up until I really see impressive content that matches the potential this game had.

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.

Well everyone has their own taste, but some of the things in this thread I will just realistically point out make no sense.

1. Your claim each class feels the same, each class has a bajillion different builds.  Your doing something wrong.

2.End game for this game has been discussed to death, i'll leave that alone and let a million other people come to this thread and talk about it.

3. Too hard to finish? Good.

Yes, it might very well be good news. It also might just be more smoke and mirrors too. We will see what we actually get.................in a buy to play model.

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.
