You're correct!  I'd rather play Rift, at least I didn't get bored playing it.

Rift? lol

Only noce thing about Rift were open beta weekends so you can find out how bland the game is. Only thing Rift has is instance progression for those who like that, but it seems not many at all do.

I would also rather play Rift. At least in Rift the classes seem different and more fun to play because of it. In GW2, I have created 3 characters that interest me the most, then I have one character slot in that I use to try all of the other classes. I have now tried them all and they all feel really blah. It may just be me, but they all feel the same. The weapon swapping for new specials was cool in the beginning, but now it makes all of the classes too similar in mechanics.

I don't hate GW2, but something has to change to keep me interested in it.

So I finally got the game, and it plays great on my mac. Its a HARD mmo to play, zerg in pvp? yes. Pve no, you have to plan and be ready to fight tooth and nail. I like how I can go to the noob areas and still get xp and earn the skill points, and its still a challenge. I had to go through the asura noob area to get to a story quest and decided to clear the zone, stil working on it, its hard because of the level scaleing deal. Its great, this game promotes helping each other even though some dont. If you where on the fence about this game don't listen to the cry babies here, its great its just not WoW, so some people cant get past that, I was that way at first because i have been programmed to just hack and slash my way through it, you are a bad ass in this game but you have to be aware and be skilled.

Since the Nexon take over this game especially the end game is not as advertised, posters here on this site know my history when it comes to this game and I can honestly say STAY AWAY and BEWARE once you reach end game because you will end up having to pay RL money eventually for something to do anything meaningful end game. 

As far as the rewards, there are none except for one single activity, fractals. Nothing else really gives you drops unless you have an extremely luck filled life.

I was the biggest fanboi of this title and for the first month everything was fine. Since Nov however i and others believe that Anet has been taken over by an extremely greedy monetization company and has since become all about the gold. We believe also that they've halted their bot search and destroy programming to allow some gold farmers to remain in the game so they can continue to bleed RL money for gold from the players for even the simplest end game gear or mats to make said gear.

I believe one of the writers of this site has the facts .... this isnt some cry baby response to a game design change, this affects every player and will soon affect Spvp and Tpvp players as soon as they find a way of making extra money off those players as well. It's coming.

Nexon is not your friend.

 

http://www.mmorpg.com/blogs/Meleagar/112012/24237_NCSoft-Sold-Arenanet-and-GW2-Out-For-Nexon-Investment

 

Trying to pin the blame squarely on the shoulders of Nexon is pretty dishonest of you IMO. Nexon has a 15% claim in NCsoft holdings. That doesn't mean Nexon swooped in and made Anet change their philosophy on game design. Anet should be held, at least, partially accountable for their decisions.

Love the spin that somehow just because a company doesn't hold 51% doesn't mean they can't control the subsidiaries they possess stocks in. 51% is only required to sell a company not to control it.

 

Spin? I'm just saying that Nexon isn't completely accountable as you're trying to suggest. Get a grip.

I think part of the problem is people tend to power through games and play it like other mmos, its a casual game not a hardcore game with raids etc, at least yet, from what Colin was saying in that live feed that they have a lot planned for the game in the near future and hopefully that means more to do or those that want to play it like a solo game until its "time to raid".

i still do find it funny people who played this game for 500+ hours claim they just play casually... me and number of my friends play and with work and family we surely play casually and have around 350 hours since launch

I liked MMOs better when gamers didn't play them, and just geeks did.

This game does a lot in PvE right, but difficulty isn't one of them. The game is waaaay too easy.

Yes, I'd much rather play Rift than GW2.  GW2 looks good, but it takes more than that to keep me interested.  I lost interest in it in 3 weeks.  That's faster than WoW for crying out loud.  I even played DDO for longer.  GW2 is so easy it's pathetic.  I only died in PVE when I would purposely pull numerous mobs to try and create some some excitement, the "dungeons" were meh, and PVP was simply a Zerg fest to me.  These are my opinions and if you like GW2 then play and have a blast.  I'm personally waiting for something else to come out.

Can you please give me a link to a game that has not quest hubs, no mobs standing still waiting to be killed and with a pure DE mechanic for progression with different outcomes depends if you fail it or succeeds it.

Hahahahaha, you said Progression in relation to GW2!  ROFL!  Sorry, that's one major area where this game is NOT like other MMORPGs and therefore takes it out of that realm of labeling.  However, I have heard rumors of upcoming progression systems which could change this, but until then, this game is again, another glorified co-op online RPG with PVP just like the first game.  Only good thing about GW2 over its predecessor is this can grow into a living world with multiple progression paths that make one want to play it for years on end.  Potential is there.  But then, we've all heard that before...

most i know that found the game to "easy" played warrior.. there surely is a big gap in solo difficulty in some classes compared to others.. also many played at launch and just followed the huge zerg from place to place so never really got to see how hard some of the areas can be..

Exactly, I am sitting at 150 hours but the last time I logged in was in October. Maybe I'll get inclined to launch the game some day again.

My main is an engineer and I have had very little problems leveling him. I won't say it is easy, but I also won't say that it has been difficult.

Great to see someone is enjoying this game.

I enjoyed it for the time I played it for, I would of played more GW2 if I hadn't of been burnt out of themepark MMO's with traditional leveling at the time.

Have fun OP!

I have 3 lvl 80 chars, a lvl 75 engineer and a lvl 42 thief.

Dependant on the time of day, and where you live in the world, you may or may not be able to find others to help. If not, trying to solo some of these classes can be very hard when facing mobs.

I have not played a guardian, so for me, the game has not been easy at all!

I leveled an ele as my first 80 and boy was that hard.

Guardian to 80 was pretty okay.

Mesmer 20ish right now is just a PITA so I said 'screw this' and doing WvW only.

I started with a necro, got to lvl 3 and decided to switch to something that did not die so often. Moved on to level a ranger to lvl 80, Then an ele to lvl 80. went back to my necro and now find it a very good pve char especially with bleed condition attacks. Tackle almost anything except some of the bigger champions whilst soloing. Engineer was a pitb to start, but gets better. Thief much the same as engineer!

The only people that can find Rift better want:

a) trinity

b) uber lewt

and thats OK, go play Rift then, but in all areas GW2 is superior game.

I played 3 classes more seriously so far (and yes i play them more than lvl2 "to try them out") and those play COMPLETELY different with COMPLETELY different mechanics.

Guardian-Necro-Thief

And ability to swap weapons does not "make them all similar in mechanics". Its like saying that souls make every class the same in Rift.

I guess i am not the only to see the irony in your post here. If Rift only has instance progression  what do you think GW2 has with its dungeons? yeah right..instanced progression. W v W has no progression what so ever. So for those who like progression which i am assuming that majority of MMO players do..they will be grinding instanced dungeons in GW2 for a long time to come.

I know you were tryign to make GW2 look good here but you did the opposite actually.
