I beta-ed  ESO since the beginning and plan to purchase once summer break starts.....

but yah recommend stay away from GW2  just like SWTOR, Warhammer Online, Age of Conan  it

has fallen in that same category....one category as an MMO company you do not want to be in...

interestingly enough the similarities between Warhammer Online and Guild Wars 2 are many.....

Yah its one of those threads......

came back to the game after a year off.......should of stayed away

Ive been modding PC's for a while now and I built a powerful system and just like

a year ago game still crashes to a black screen....really?  This is still around? pathetic

 

Ranger has been nerfed to near oblivion and yet ranger/bear bot trains still in game gold

farming....(good job there)

 

No ENd Game content....I mean there is some but once you hit 80  real boring...

Small piece meal content is not going to cut it.....just so they can sell cash shop items

This game needs a serious expansion pack to breathe new life into it....

 

The warrior has clearly been favored by the Devs evident by its OP and why should

the community complain there is lots of warriors out there.......

 

 

You know this game reminds me of Warhammer Online a lot which btw I played longer than

GW2 and well you know the Warhammer Online story....

 

crashes (just like Guild Wars 2)

class imbalance (just like Guild Wars 2)

Shadow Warrior=Ranger (useless)

 

Warhammer Online shutdown=  GUi???????????

 

This game needs lots of fixin...Im out

Caster nerfs

especially to bards

Insane Housing Prices

redundant to little end game content....

 

THis game is just going down the %^^%^%

 

Oh well on to the next MMO

I haven't played for more than 2 hours straight without something happening either an instance lock  or a maintenance update Log out and then can't come back in.....I'm glad I'm working on the 27th and I will read what's happening from work on the forums but I already EXPECT the worse because   THEY did not have enough beta's and the game wasn't tested properly because the SE staff was just being lazy and complaceant but they are about to pay the price come the 27th  you can bet investors are already twitching at all thsi...atleast I would.

You can bet heads are gonna roll...\

First thing players will say...."Oh here we go again"   this is just pathetic on SE part and downright

inexcuseable   yah it's early access and we start paying on the 27th SO Freaking What!

 

Right now NA EU is severely broken they got 2 days to fix this and everytime they try to fix it they must make it worse

with more errors

SE has new head staff and any debacle on opening day and I can guarantee Yoshi P's head will roll.....start from the top

down to the bottom.  this is not a fresh start, this is not 2.0  this is 1.0 all over again......if you value your time stay away until they iron out this debacle .   IF your on the fence about getting this game I would just wait it out currently this game if EFfing BRoken..

If the graphics remain like this they can count me out.  yes I upgrade my PC's like twice a year (it's a hobby) and there are many of us.  I'm not going go play a pixelated mess in 2013 or whenever it's coming out. 
apparently you've never fought lupicus and wth is GW2 discussion doing in FFXIV? Most of the end dungeons are very hard and with updates I bet they are going to make some hard modes anyways you could post this in the GW2 forums where you'll be eaten alive.

Would I like this?

I ask because from the few vids I've seen, there seem to be a couple things that cause me to reconsider.

1. No healers. The one part of the trinity I enjoy most. I suppose strategy later in the game will push certain players into more support roles as opposed to zerging encounters each doing their own thing, so this might be ok.

2. No raids. Getting a guild together for a planned event with a group is a big part of any MMO for me. Is there anything like this in the game?

3. Twitch gaming. From the few bits of gameplay I've seen, this seems to be a big thing. I'd never roll a thief in any RPG and don't like PvP in most games.

Bonus question: If I am going to get the game, what class would be best suited based on the above?

Going by what you have put here I can honestly say No GW2 is not for you.

Wow it's amazing how fast they are putting new items in the station cash shop but what's even more amazing is how old bugs still languish on after 5 years.....fail

Seriously don't even think about spending cash on this game it's still very broken...

with the market they broke crafting.  Social server keeps going down, still falling through

the world, cant trade, etc etc....

 

just leave it alone guys and maybe finally this horror will go away....this is Sony's truly last

chance to try to ressurect this monstrosity....too bad they did it during the month when

GW2 will be released (idiots).

A lot of misinformation here.   They have said almost all quest rewards can be used by f2p no matter the quality and I leveled from 1-30 and almost every blue item i seen was useable by f2p.

Blue items have been lifted I have started doing the banisher's questline for crafters and so far I have received like 12 "gold" "orange" items that I can't use atleast they can give us options   this or that............this game needs a middle ground F2P matrix or it's gonna die...this is just one big experiment for SONY....right around the corner is 

GUILD WARS 2 massive mmo that offers all content with a ONE box purchase which is like

100 times better than Vanguard.   I dont' know what they were thinking or they didn't realize that ANET was going to release Guild Wars 2 in August thats like David and GOliath....okay most people probably can afford a pay and a not pay mmo but which MMO are most players going to play come August 25th....yah I thought so.

I for one am glad GW2 has no raiding and like I said in a post on here couple weeks ago...if

GW2 isn't for everyone and if it isn't then DON't get it, it just isn't for you...and probably never will be.

 just move on, pls.

And I suspect most will. Enjoy your continuing low pop

This Just move on attitude is why Vanguard has languished for so long as a subpar MMO

who barely retains any players and the long time veterans who keep paying these 15 per month sub fees

but like you say "enjoy your continuing low pop" I logged on yesterday and it's still very unpopulated last

I heard on Telon the count was close to 1000 players sure didn't feel like it while I was online and I was 

teleporting all over the place.  This is truly Vanguard's last hurrah we are probably witnessing here the end

of Vanguard SOE needs to change their pricing model a bit to attract more players.   What's going to happen 

when F2P players refuse to do dungeons because the loot wont be accessible to them?  F2P players are

in the game to spend little cash and populate the servers SOE thats basic F2P protocol ....who the hell is 

making the calls overthere????????????????

Maybe when you lack content like GW2 does :)  Vanguard is HUGE easily 30 dungeons in the game between level 8 and 55 maybe more.   Vanguard was truly the last MMO made that tried to make an epic world of this scale rift, swtor, gw2, tsw, tera all of them lack even a fraction of the size vanguard had at launch.   

 

Also the F2P isn't very restrictive you can wear almost all blue items and any quest reward you get.   If you decide to sub its only 7.50 a month if you pay yearly which is the best option in my opinion or its 14.99 a year if you get station access and have access to all SOE games.  Also with any sub you get 500 station cash free per month.

 

GW2 has 8 dungeons with 3 different paths you can take, so its really 24 at launch and the promis of much more to come. I am not worried about a lack of content. I only play 1 MMO at a time so 15 bucks a month is still a rip off. If it was a flat fee of 4-7 bucks a month I would jump at playing Vanguard as I love the world and the classes but I refuse to play 15 bucks a month and I wont shell out for a year for any MMO, even one I am enjoying curently. To many quality MMOs coming out that have a much more appealing price point. GW2, NWN. People using a game like GW2 with a cash shop spend on average about 4-7 bucks a month. For me thats a fair price.

Meh, 50 cents a day is not a  ripoff. Don't drink a Mountain Dew or skip a candy bar. If you start subbing several games at one time like that guy with 40 WoW accounts multiboxing,  then I can see it being a problem! :) 

Vanguard is a true mmorpg in my mind. It is clunky, but it has some superior features that not even EQ2 has. Now, if they can shake the blankets and get rid of some of the bugs it has a chance! Yay!

 

Its called market value, I am willing to spend 50cents on a candy bar or a can of pop as thats what its worth. My point is the market value for monthly subs is changing.  DDO and GW1 has proved they can make lots of money and make enough content to make customers happy with a average of 4-7 bucks a month from customers.

I have been playing GW2 and its as quality as an MMO can get. I am having bucks of fun in PvE and WvW. So why would I jump ship to play an older game and pay more? Market value of Vanguard is F2P but not as SoE has it set up. Make it really free to play or charge 4-6 bucks a month.

I really enjoyed Vanguard in its day and I am not here trying to turn people from this game to go play GW2. My point is this. If ANet can make money on their game with an average of 4-7 bucks a month with a cash shop. Then why is SoE giving Vanguard a 7 year old game a bad make over. Their F2P model for Vanguard is so restrictive IMO its not worth playing. In the end if you love the game you will be paying 15 bucks a month. Is that a bad thing? IMO yes. Why? Because quality games are coming out that are really F2P.

Lets put it this way. Since you said I should not buy Mountain Dew because its 50cents. What if Mountain Dew is your fav pop but a company came out with a drink that tasted just like Mountain Dew but costs 25 cents and gave you PvP? Its not that 50cents costs a lot but its no longer the market value. Many are seeing 15 bucks a month as a rip off because we have been playing beta weekend events with GW2. After the box price it really is F2P. I leave you with this question. Whats a 7 year old game worth in this market? For me? I would resub to Vanguard for 4-6 bucks a month. I think thats fair.

 

You saved me some typing because you typed exactly what I wanted to say....What Vanguard needs is a Silver Membership that cuts the 15.00 in half or lower....even with all the content Vanguard is not worth 15.00 of my money per month no way no how....sorry Hardcore Vanguard players it's just NOT.

7.00 per month to Vanguard is fair...netflix is 7.99 per month and it has 1000% more value than Vanguard does to me and my family....SOE at it again..in all honestly this is an experiment for them and we are the lab rats...well this rat isn't going to bite.'

Wrong you can't loot all quest rewards you get they have to be under the F2P model or you have to unlock them for a price of 250 sony station cash per unlock....

Despite removing every ounce of anything resembling a war from Warcraft, Blizz has made it very clear they are willing to get into a war with GW2.

 

WOW knows there days are numbered when it comes to GW2 but

WOW will always have a fanbase....always

yes I know SOE needs to make money and its a business I have no problem with that....

raise some the restrictions and I'll jump in and buy a mount for 10 dollars or so....even a bank slot.

But restricting "high end items?"  Okay so you can level all the way to 55 and your in a dungeon and you can't loot a goldl?    

Like I said F2P players will not keep Vanguard alive..it's the subscribers that will keep it alive but there aren't enough of them that's where the F2P players come in what keeps VETS away from the game is the low population.....I was in Leth Nurae last nite for 2 hours I only saw 1 other player and this is A MAJOR city in the game....Leth Nurae in peak times in it's first year was busy with crafters and players all over the place....this is on the first F2P day....

What this tells me is that old players are still staying away from the game atleast most of them, yes I know some came back because I was chatting with them last nite and we were all discussing the F2P plan and all we see is GREED because SOE has no confidence that Vanguard has what it takes to bring in players....it does.  If Guild Wars 1 can afford to keep servers open for 6 years for FREE with thousands of players still playing it, you can log in to Guild Wars 1 right now and find thousands of players in there right now WHY because Guild Wars 1 is a GREAT game with GREAT support.  Vanguard has been neglected for years and now they just want to FLIP the switch and watch the magic happen??? doesn't work that way.

Vanguard is dear and very memorable to some of us players that were there day 1 and helped SIgil with Bugs and what not, but in the two years I played it they ignored some of the biggest problems and some are still there.   

I see this as Vanguard's last breathe and honestly I don't think it's gonna make it....competition is tough this summer..

 

GW2-Completely Free2Play after box purchase.

SWTOR- Free2Play

Secret World

Planetside

Sony is fighting an uphill battle...this is a very stubborn company with a track record of doing things 100% there way and not listening to their audience and it's gonna cost them.....servers will get congested and support tickets will ramp up and subscribers will rise then fall like always....I wish Vanguard the best but if you read here and on other forums people are just not happy with the F2P model ony the hardcore players I wish them luck really but I am moving on to better games....to new players let me give you some advice....don't waste your itme.

I forgot to mention the high end item restrictions....yes you can now level to 55 as a F2P but you won't be able to claim the high end loot as a F2P player again a slap to the face.

SOE's last ditch effort to ressurect this montrosity from the grave fails to bring in VETS from hibernation....I'll tell you why.

#1 First 2 Plat on coin....really 2 plat? I can sell precious metals and make easily 10PLALT in one day if I wanted too.

#2 25 bank slots?

#3 restricting classes and races for F2P players....

 

SOE fails to realize that the F2P players are in Vanguard as a commodity to support to other hardcore players....to POPULATE the servers.  Instead their restrictive pricing plans are keeping us away.   There is a reason why we don't want to pay 15.00 a month anymore IT"S JUST NOT WORTH IT.  But, spending some cash on a mount, XP potions, cosmetics, and some armor might be alright but if you look at their pricing plans it's way too aggressive and all VET players and some new players see is GREED....a Pay2WIIN system will not work SOE....EVER.
