Beside Turbine creating total carebear content making AC1 pvp good was probably not on purpose. AC2 could have reached WoW success since it was its predecesor
now that it is F2P I will probably reinstall and leave it on my PC and log in for nostalgia and the crystal sounds.
I warened everybody numerous time when the game launched that this game was bound to fail cause of how easy it is to hack it.
Guild Wars 2 im coming back :)
Here is what I enjoy to do the most in the game... To those saying Zerg pvp suck after trying to do it for like a day or two saying its only a button mashing thing.
Cedrick's Guardian on youtube.
add w w w youtube dot com at the begining obviously
( cant write down webpage on forums )
I tried the Necro, Mesmer and now Guardian and I like all of them. What this game made me realize is that when you are playing a healer in other MMO's you are pretty much watching health bars going up and down constantly during an encounter.
I like it too somehow but it was getting old for me after a couple years of playing a priest in WoW. In GW2 you are actually playing the game not the UI.
You rarely have to watch what is around you as a healer in most MMO unless you are standing in the fire or if the boss require a certain strategy for positioning. Then you are back at playing the health bar game again.
Watch your cooldown timers, watch your positioning a split second then back at staring at the health bars.
Its like playing a Nintendo game of the 90s lol.
I know, I know its much more than just staring at health bars especially in pvp but you get the point.
I played the game at release but returned to it recently. Most of the time when I hang around on the forums looking for something to play, I tend to re-activate old games hoping they will grab my attention like they did the first time and ignite a gaming passion.
Let's face it, it rarely happens! Most older games are never the same. They get patched in a wrong way or a bad expansion comes out and despite my desire to relive the adventure once again, it is not possible anymore.
Luckily Gw2 was a suprising exeption for me. I returned to it and decided to learn the game over again leveling up to 80 before jumping into pvp. It took me about a week to get used to the new interface and shake the rust off.
-Im not a fan of grinding but the grind in this game is fun. Finding vistas, points of interest, hearths and even dynamic events.
The game is relatively easy and casual player friendly. However, there is harder content available and unless you are an elitist raider you will find in the dongeons and especially higher level Fractals your PvE fix.
- Dont fall into the ( only few skills available, game seems too simple ) once you get higher in level you will realize the gameplay has a lot of depth and things can get much more complicated and hard than you can imagine.
The ArenaNet store is a plus. People are buying there things illegally in every games, at least in Gw2 your money goes to the company instead of going to some silly chinese farmers.
- There is no pay to win in there, just cosmetic stuff and fluffy items but I fell for a couple items and Im realy happy with what I bought for around 35$ US.
I usually play casters or healers in MMO's but this time I decided to roll a Human Guardian. I realy enjoy the melee aspect in the game. I've watched Tap dat mouse videos on youtube and Empowering Wrath by Stella and decided to try their builds.
I am having a lot of fun roaming in world vs world killing people .... Dying also lolll but its only going to get better as my gear progresses.
Next step will be to learn all the other classes basic mechanics so I can counter them better in pvp and also sinergize better with them in PvE. The world is immense and the graphics at max settings are for me 10/10.
Im glad I decided to give the game a second chance... I had to buy it over again since i had forgotten my password... I dunno how their password system works but ey didnt let me use a password i had used in the past for anything on my computer. So creating my new account was a bit complicated and I didnt understand at first why they wouldnt let me create my account. Even after trying like 20 different passwords possibilities lol I realy had to pick something new.
Ho and girls tend to like this MMO a lot. I joined a guild and was suprised to hear the voices once I joined their mumble. A lot of older people are playing the game as well. Im not saying there are no kids since it s F2P game but being casual friendly makes it accessible to people with busy lifes.
Being casual friendly doesnt mean the game cant deliver for hardcore gamers. Its going to take a lot of time before you run out of content and the replay value is good since every story line varies depending on your class and the choices you made upon character creation.
What matters is not how much fun you could get but the rewards you could get........
Because god knows how important getting fat epic loot matters right?
lolll seriously I dont care if the rewards are not going to make my character faceroll the content because I like it when it is challenging and getting fat loot means im getting much stronger making the game much easier which is in my opinion counter productive if I wanna just have fun.

I wanted to try Archage realy bad but unfortunately there are WAYYYYYYY to many cheaters, boters, teleport hackers and exploiters and this will not stop since the game is extremely easy to hack due to poor script design.
after a very very long break from GW2 ( only played a couple months at launch ) me and my wife recently got back into it and I have to say I realy dont remember why I quit... probably to go play WoW Cata when it launched and then forgot about it.
People say its a casual game because there are no end game Raids and because they say the World vs world vs world is only a big zerg...
To that I answer that there are harder dongeons and you need to be decent and have a good group . End game is an Economy game and not only a race for BiS. The cradting is deep and fun.
The PvP Battlegrounds are very fun... there are few maps but the Meta is deep and fun if you actually play at a competitive level.
Can still be a lot of fun to solo Q imo.
The WvWvW can be a zerg if you want it to be a zerg. If your thing is open world small scale or solo PvP you can do it in WvWvW but you need to pick up the right class for it.
More mobile class make it possible if you are skilled enough. You can check this guy out as an exemple on youtube. Hes french tho and its an old vid but things didnt change all that much. Of course there was a lot of class balance since then but overall the experience is possible still.
People were crying all over the forums about dongeons being too hard when GW2 first came out.
Most people were cry babies when WoW cataclysm first launched and trying to pug heroic 5 man.
People now complain that wow too easy and they say they want harder content.
They cry when its easy they also cry when its hard and yet they are just bored to death with everything they are playing in general unless a game just came out, then they are super exited for a month and then it fades away and they start crying all over again.
My advice would be to sit back and start thinking about it for a moment.
Hardcore players like games when its hard but they are investing all of their spare time working hard to get more powerful in order to make their life ( the game ) easier. Completely mind bugling.
if you want harder content just get a guild group together and gear yourself up with greens and try running dongeons like that instead of doing it with min/max characters wih every BiS items. Then with the rest of your spare time, go to the gym or Try to cook good food, play music, learn new things you might not even know you like.
im not a big fan of huge raid content myself. Most fun I was getting out of WoW is when expansions launched and people are all under geared for 5 man heroics. The burning crusade heroics were the best imo. Required CC, coordination, threat control and tank had to actually work hard to hold aggro.

you are not forced into doing things you dont like tho.

The scaled down thingy is still a very nice feature when you out level the content a little bit or when you almost done with a zone but you stay to get 100% map completion

In the long run I think ESO is a better choice. It has the potential to be great if they fix a couple mechanics and keep fixing the shear amount of bugs and wrong tooltips.
ESO is good on paper only. The combat seems very deep and fun but once you understand the mechanics after a while you realise its redundant and not that fun after all.
class balance in 1vs1 is bad. For exempe 2 good players can fight each other for 3-4 minutes and end up giving up because they cant kill each other.
Dk being able to chain root and go behind your back out of your line of sight and there are no cc immunity or diminishing returns.
sorcerers blinking all across the map. Everyone using staves in end game pve because stamina builds are a joke. The holy trinity is also a joke in the game.
Archeage combat on the other hand is very well done the sandbox aspect and the open world makes you feel like you are playing a real MMO all over again. Deep amd fun pvp crafting system. The quests are straigt foward and dont feel like a chore and you only have to do so many of them ... If you want you can grind xp with mobs or many other ways.
on the other hand the game is not very well scripted and most spells are client sided making the game EXTREMELY easy to hack and exploit. The boters are cheaters are ALL OVER THE PLACE. There is also no more land to get a house AND the cheaters are getting the one that free up as soon as they do. No exagerating there. Also the game has its fair share of bugs and graphical bugs and latency problems and connectivity and queue time.
I personally went back to guild wars 2 and I am very happy with all the changes they made. The game doesnt feel old and its probably the best choice for casual and semi casual gamers.
I played the game at launch and I have to admit I had a blast but I was more of a WoW fan back then and Cataclysm launch just drove me away from GW2 and I never bothered going back until recently.
I am not going to elaborate too much and I dont want this thread to become a WoW vs GW2 thread but im going to list a coupe things that makes me love GW2 in 2014.
-1 The leveling experience is very fun. You are always scaled down with your encounters and it never becomes too easy like the joke leveling vs nerfed content using heirlooms wow as become.
-2 Its good when you become older because the game is extremely accessible and casual friendly. ( its also an easy game to get your wife or a friend into)
-3 The combat system in small scale encounter is very deep and fun. You have to analyse things and make wise use of your abilities. Sure you can spam abilities as soon as they come up but you will not be as efficient.
-4 The PvP in the mist is very fun still in 2014 and with the Mega Server, the queues are very fast at any time of the day.
-5 the cash shop is one of the best period. No pay to win but very appealing for convenience stuff like super mining pick with infinite charges and special particule effects as an exemple.
The game is now for me the best in 2014. I have never been a fan of questing but running around in the world these days in
gw2 with my wife has been the best fun I had paying an mmo since the last time I was hooked to Darkfall online.
I like the whole concept that nobody around you can take anything from you. When you group with people you still get 100% xp from the mobs you are killing. I was waiting for corecraft forever hanging around on the forums trying desperately to find a game that would not bore me to tears and all this time the game I was looking for was right in front of my eyes and I had already paid for it.
So in order to fight againts bots and hackers we are forced into sharing land with a guild...
I just bought 2 copies of Guild Wars 2 even tho this would have been my second choice.
Tks for all of your answers
Some people say there are no lands some people say there are still some but you have to look in the pvp area.
as for the cheaters I saw a video saying they started banning people already
I just bought a new computer so my wife can start playing MMOs with me. I made her try Elder Scroll's Online but she realized the liked tab targeting games more after a couple hours on my WoW account.
She plays Ipad games like HayDay which is like the crafting side only so I figured out she would probably like a game like AA.
When I decide to dedicate myself to an MMO I dedicate several hours a week. As the title says Im realy scared about the whole experience ruined by cheaters of all sort. PvP hackers, Economy being screwed up due to cheaters, Bots and teleport hacking.
I just Read on forums that most spells are client side which makes the game extremely easy to hack... Can anybody tell me If it is possible to ignore cheaters, trying to just enjoy the game knowing that a lot of people are getting huge and unfair advantages is kind of mind bugling.
Also I heard that it is pretty much impossible to get a land for a farm, If it is only a matter of getting the farm in pvp land, I could deal with that since im a huge fan of PvP and usually I am the predator and not the foe in this type of games.
Tks for reading, and Hopefully somebody can enlighten me with an informative reply.
I'm think of returning, but have one concern...

I think there is an internal cooldown for the drops or something around those lines.
Zenimax are relentless with cheaters and banned thousands of them and the game is well scripted and majority of the spells are server side and hard to exploit compared to other titles like "cough cough" archeage.
Av banned more people from their game.. [mod edit]

Whoever guessed the playerbase to be around 5k is bad at guessing.
in order to get peaks of 3-4k players online everydays you need to have well over 25k people subbed to the game.
Saying their server cant handle more than 4k players at once is an information you pulled out of nowhere. Their server is having problems only when you see 200+ players fighting each other in a single tile and about 4-5 fights like that one are happenning at the same time elsewhere in the world of Agon.
