I mean, who could resist the continuation of an epic game of heart grinding, puzzle jumping, circular "dynamic" eventing, incredible storywriting and voiceacting to meet the super-epic world destroying end boss fight in which your mission is to get into a static turret and spam a button unchallenged till it falls off a rock.*

well, if the average gamer is no longer concerned with GW2, it's nice to know that the above average gamer is still enjoying it.

:)

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

Not sure if you'll need to be exalted with every faction in the game, and do 500 dailies, and run every dungeon/raid/BG,  to take part in it or not though.

 

 

 

 

Lol, GW2 was not the first with jumping puzzles. AC had them, WAR had them, SWTOR had them off the top of my head.

Oh? So Asheron's Call had jumping puzzles, RvR, sPvP, multiple tiered storylines, Dynamic Events, monthly content updates including map expansions, exploration completion goals, mini-games, personal resource nodes, combo fields, shared experience and loot on OW mobs, underwater combat, and running software that allows the developers to patch them on the fly, including the implimentation of new content. (sorry for the excessive amount of comma's in that sentence)

No, it wasn't AC. It wasn't AoC. It wasn't Aion. It wasn't WoW. It wasn't DAOC. It wasn't SWG. It wasn't SWTOR. It wasn't any of them.

It was GW2.

 

EDIT: I know it's the same post in both threads, but it was meant to be here, not in the other thread. My bad.

you forgot one of the #1 rules of these forums if someone doesn't enjoy any said feature in any particular game then it doesn't exist or isn't relavent :)

I was simply commenting on the JUMPING PUZZLES comment, obviously. I m really starting to think the few of you rabid fanbois left are really grasping at straws, freaking out over every little thing. It s just a game, get a little bit of a life, and stop taking it so serious.

I know. You were simply picking out one small portion of the game and pointing out that GW2 wasn't the first with it. 

Just as an FYI, you weren't the first person to do that in this thread.

And sorry if I sounded hostile by listing off a bunch of components about GW2 at once. I never realized how angry it sounds to say THAT many things in a row.  My apologies

Fair enough, but at least to me, everything you mentioned, it doesn t even do well IMO. This game felt like a carnival to me, fun little spurts, then the boredom settles in, and you realize you re getting ripped off.

My whole gaming community (around 150 people give a take or few) started playing SWTOR very enthusiasticly in early access (premade guild and all that), and abandoned the game completely (started with first month) at 3 months mark, and they all still play GW2 since prelaunch in full strenght.

Noone (but me) even expressed interest to check out SWTOR again, EVEN for free, i tried and stopped again because game is getting worse and con job with paid content update was pretty much something than made me write off SWTOR forever.

And they are all pretty "average mmo gamers".

Get your facts straight

Theres like four rabid GW2 fans left from the seemingly endless sea of them before launch and they are really trying hard to grasp at straws lately.

 

These threads and the fact you respond to every comment is a little ridiculous.

 

I mean i've watched the rabid GW2 fanboys fade away one by one... wonder when the last few will give up and realize GW2 will never be the mondo super MMO it was hyped up to be. It will be your average MMO, so far it hasn't done any better than SWTOR. 

 

Box sales were similar and retention rate is probably similar too, well see if anyone is even talking about GW2 in a years time.

 

No MMO will ever be a breakout success like WoW, they will quickly get lost in a sea of MMOs, sooner people realize this the less disappointed they'll be in the future.

 

The Elder scrolls has a chance of selling 5m+ boxes copies though just due to the IP and it's direct relation with gamers, ESO is probably a year away from release and it's already at over 1m likes on facebook with average marketing, once marketing starts at launch time it's going to be ridiculous.

Really? You come back to the forums half a year later after playing for a month to comment on it still... I'd say it's more influential than you're willing to let on.

I can't see any other game, from last year, that other companies will be influenced by. I am happy that there is no trinity as I am bored to death with that simplified game mechanic. It was used a crutch for too long.

Isn't the homogonization of classes into builds that can complete every task necessary in groups just as boring?

Nah,its 10 times more boring.

I find it boring that you have to have, in other games like RIft, one healer or more, one tank or more, DPS (only specific builds please) and always asking for people and to be rejected when you don't have what is expected. For as versatile builds can be in Rift, they still boil down to 1-2 build per profession that are wanted and used. All the others are throw aways. The same can be said for all the other games out there that use the trinity.

 

It was your opinion and that is fine - don't state it as fact.

 

They are not homogenized as you you say. Rift got homogenized because of the limited builds actually used at end game. Play a mesmer in GW2 and see how different the builds can be.

To me it is fact and that is all that matters to me.

It is like sex, if you compare every time to your first, then you will never get the WoW affect you had back then (sorry put it this way but it is a good example).  The same can be said for gaming....

 

There are plenty of GW2 players and now that the new patch is out and fixes some major issues, the rest can be dealt with. Your assumption of few, is more than likely worng.

 

We don't know enough about ESO to even say how many boxes it will sell. By the hype I have seen of it (and your post is a prime example of unmitigated hype) the game will as many detractors as GW2 does. Why? People don't see how their hype wrecks things.

Influential? in my eyes,  GW2 is a wreck, i bought it, regret it badly after few hours. Sad story that ended after a good nights sleep. And i can deff say its not very influential... I dont see much that any other game would really want.

The influential games are those who have been in active duty for a long time. Like UO, Asheron's call for example.

Why not comment on it. People giving their opinion 10+ years later about EQ1 or UO or AC1 happens all the time, good or bad. Is GW2 immune to such things. It doesn t make it influential, it was a huge disappointment for alot of people, so they still will talk down on it to let other people know the other side. Guess what there will be topics about GW2 2-3 years from now I m sure, not for it s influential nature but because it was a good memory or bad memory for some.

abloslutly nothing inovative in gw.

public quests stolen from WAR.

Jump puzzles stolen form com. of WOW.

PvP stolen from DAOC.

The other things in that game where nothing good, so nobody wants to see them again.

No offence, I relly wanted to like this game, played it for one week and was bored to dead.

See a dynamic event combines the easy grouping of PQs with the motivation to kill mobs behind quest. It also both makes that grouping even easier and streamlined and delivers the quest with a mixture of real time action, voice acting and a text complement.

DE = better PQs + better questing -> text book innovation.

 

Currently playing: GW2
Cooperative (semi cooperative)board games you should check: Pandemic, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Eldritch Horror, Descent 2.0,Level 7 Omega Protocol, Last Night on Earth

Jump puzzles stolen form com. of WOW.

PvP stolen from DAOC.

The other things in that game where nothing good, so nobody wants to see them again.

No offence, I relly wanted to like this game, played it for one week and was bored to dead.

See a dynamic event combines the easy grouping of PQs with the motivation to kill mobs behind quest. It also both makes that grouping even easier and streamlined and delivers the quest with a mixture of real time action, voice acting and a text complement.

DE = better PQs + better questing -> text book innovation.

 

So your opinion is fact now? DE=orange circle chasing+no questing=nice try.

Lets see.

I said DEs allow group play, even easier than PQs,

Is that false? Do PQs allow easier grouping?

 

I said DEs present the story of a quest with real time action, voice acting and complementary text.

Is this false? Do DEs happen in the game world in real time or not? Do NPCs have voice acting lines or not? Do NPCs have a text with background information or not?

 

If these are true, than it is a fact, not an opinion.

Currently playing: GW2
Cooperative (semi cooperative)board games you should check: Pandemic, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Eldritch Horror, Descent 2.0,Level 7 Omega Protocol, Last Night on Earth

how do you figure? 

the majority of Elder Scrolls sales were for the console platforms, XBOX and PS3

Actually, theres no relevance to what you said before, DE=better PQs.... that there is a matter of opinion, so no it isn t fact.

These threads and the fact you respond to every comment is a little ridiculous.

 

I mean i've watched the rabid GW2 fanboys fade away one by one... wonder when the last few will give up and realize GW2 will never be the mondo super MMO it was hyped up to be. It will be your average MMO, so far it hasn't done any better than SWTOR. 

 

Box sales were similar and retention rate is probably similar too, well see if anyone is even talking about GW2 in a years time.

 

No MMO will ever be a breakout success like WoW, they will quickly get lost in a sea of MMOs, sooner people realize this the less disappointed they'll be in the future.

Hey welcome back. Nice to see that you haven't stopped your anti-GW2 campaign. I do have to wonder, why a person spends SO MUCH time preaching about a game that apparantly nobody cares about?

 

In other words, why do you bother to share?

 

Oh and as an FYI, many of the GW2 fans quit MMORPG because of the trolls here, they didn't quit the game. Something I've thought about doing myself.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.
