As you may know GW2 boasts having the "endgame starts at level 1". There isn't any raiding or traditional gear grind progession at level 80, which is fine with me since I never was much of raider (not enough free time). My question is once you take your sweet time to smell the roses along the way to lv 80 what is there to do? By then I would assume one would have seen about 75% of the game's content and it's just a month or two beyond that probably to see the rest.

Basically whats going to keep me playing once I've leveled 3 alts to 80?

What would you WANT to do? What do you do when you complete any other game? Just because it's an mmo doesn't mean it has to entertain you for the rest of your life

75% = average

Teakbois is right Alga.  I noticed that you live in Europe which uses a different system for grading.  In your system, whether 20 point or 100 point, usually an average grade is around the midpoint (i.e., 10 or 50) instead of at the three-quarter point (i.e., 15 or 75). 

It has nothing to do with where he lives. I've noticed MMORPG.com rates everything of 8 and above as "great" so relatively this should be good not average.

I agree. Alga is correct. 7.5 on a 1 - 10 scale is NOT average. It doesn't take much common sense to know that "average" should be somewhere towards the middle. A 6 would be average, 7 would be quite good, 8 would be great, 9 would be amazing and 10 would be "mind blowing! Oh my god what the hell is this?! Is it from the future?!".

But then everyone knows that websites like these use a different scale with a range of 3 - 10

Yes that isnt pay to win but if you dont pay, your gonna feel like you cant get the items you grinded for and that would piss me off terribly.

Yes they need to make money but i for one HATE HATE HATE this model. 

Well I LOVE LOVE LOVE this model. I hope more mmos use it.

So.......you would rather be FORCED to pay a monthly fee just to be able to play the game you already bought, instead of paying an OPTIONAL fee to remove a bit of a time sink? What about the people who dont care about lockboxes and have no problem using in-game methods of opening them?

If it bothers you then just pay the money, enjoy the game without the things that annoy you and treat it as though you are paying a subscription fee if you are so eager to have your money taken off you.

I think a lot of players used MMORPG games to replace their non-existent social lives in the 1990s and early 2000s. Back then mostly only "geeks" played these games. Geek back then meant a person that is single or in a bad relationship where they had no hobby or activity other than come home or stay home all day and play the game til they are exhausted.

They made "friends" and felt like they were part of something and so they had a social life now but it was online. They could waste full days and nights and not care or feel liek anything is wrong.

Nowadays everyone plays online games. Girls, jocks, "ghetto" people, rich, poor, mom, dad, even grand dad and still the nerds and geeks too. Now people know it is wrong to play too much as it is an addiction and bad for your health and life.

Now the people from the old days of online gaming miss how they could sit there and talk online hours and meet up with the same people each night for 6-8 hours and waste the night away.  Most players do not want to do this today.

Why is this no longer the case? Because the players nowadays do not have 8-10 hours to waste. They have jobs, girlfriend/boyfriends, activities away from the computer that they do etc. The avergae person plays now and not just the no lifers like in the past.

People mostly want a game they can play 1-4 hours max. They don't have time to form a group for an hour and sit there 8-10 hours and just chat and have a social life online that replaces their real one.

I think you guys that are never happy no matter what game you try need to just be happier in your real life, get out more and use games as a hobby a couple hours a night. They are that, not meant to replace real life man..... It is not the games that are the problem, it is you. If you are never happy with any of them and always looking for something more, it is probably a hole in your real life that a game cannot ever patch up. 

The parts of your post highlighted in purple are nothing more than your narrow minded opinion. Do you want to know how I can say that with absolute authority? It's because......

YOU CANNOT POSSIBLY KNOW WHAT EVERYONE ON THE PLANET HAS BEEN DOING SINCE THE 1990's.

Yeah I bet that's a real revelation for you right? Everything you have described cannot be applied to everyone. At best it could perhaps be an accurate description of some people. Your extremely hostile and negative portrayal of a geek for example is very obviously based on your spiteful opinion and nothing more. Geeks have no lives and no girlfriends? Says who? You? I think you need to mingle more with people from more varied social backgrounds as you seem to have lived a rather sheltered life.

In reply to the green text......ermm.....no sorry mmos actually have been pretty bad for quite a while now. You think everyone who thinks differently is unhappy with their lives? Are you actually capable of rational thought at all?

Here's a thought for you. When you started this post, how were you feeling?

You seem like a very unhappy person to me. I think you need to work on your own life before laying into the rest of this planets population.

Oh wow Marchosias you have managed to create one hell of a dumb post. Does your brain always work like this?

As others have already pointed out, ArenaNet have been very clear on what you will be getting for your money if you pre-purchase. You get the final product when it releases and until then you get to take part in the beta tests which effectively is a sneak preview of the game and also a chance to contribute to making it a better product.

"And make no mistake fans, we are PAYING TO TEST this game."

Yes Marchosias. That is what ArenaNet offered you and you accepted that offer. Everyone knows that ArenaNet are currently beta testing the game........except you it seems. If you did not want to participate in the beta test then why did you pre-purchase the game? Clearly you had absolutely no idea what you were buying, which is of course your own fault and no-one elses

Maybe your right.  Maybe, I just don't like the idea of Nickel and Diming me to death.  I just so like the $15 sub and be done with it idea much more.  Seems like Dev have figured out that cash shops are more profitable than subs so all games with be F2P/P2W at some point.  Seems like P2P is dieing.

$15 a month, you want, right?  That equates to $180 a year, or maybe like 150, if you buy some special package.

So let's run a new set of numbers using LOTRO as an example.

With sales, you can buy all the content the game has to offer for about $80, plus a lot of premium stuff.  After that, you spend maybe like 10-20 a year on expansions.  To meet the $150 requirement, you would have to play the game for about 4 years.  But wait, that subscriber game you mentioned?  That is $600 dollars of your money!!!

Without sales, the LOTRO complete game is likely about $120 total.  Still reasonable.

So, F2P:  $80-$120

or P2P:  $150 per year (plus, a lot of them have cash shops now)

 

Your choice!

You are far too sensible for this website. People like the OP simply cannot compute thoughts like this.

They have been paying subscription fees for years and believing they are a good deal. To admit otherwise would be admitting to being ripped off for ages. They even say things like "but it's cheaper than going to the cinema or going down the pub" in an attempt to justify it to themselves. They believe that subscription fees guarantee a quality product and are required for their game to survive. Even though this obviously isn't true, they have been conditioned to think that it is. They also believe cash shops are the work of the devil. Logic and reason cannot make a dent in this. Sheep will be sheep.

Can't you just not use the cash shops? Or do you have to buy stuff from them for some reason to be able to play the game?

You good sir are a spoilt brat.

The game offers you 3 days to try it out before buying it and you complain that they should give you more?! They dont have to give you anything for free. How about they let you complete the entire game before you decide to purchase it? Ridiculous.

On top of this you contradict yourself by saying that in those 3 days you managed to get 4 characters to level 20. So......you clearly got a very good taste of what the game is like......enough of a taste to decide that the game is not quite to your liking.

You remind me a little bit of a "friend" of mine. He has not done a days work for years and years and is always scrounging off the benefit system. He still complains though that the free handouts he gets are not enough for him.

You should learn to appreciate and be grateful for what people give you instead of whining like a spoilt brat.

I want it to go in ALL directions (including ways that I dont personally like). There is no reason at all for mmos to go a particular way in favour of another. That just leads to boredom and stagnation which is something we have already witnessed. As long as they are Massively Multiplayer Online games then they can be absolutely anything. Variety is the spice of life

I wish people would do a bit more research before jumping on the "OMG WTF SUX!" train.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all about constructive criticism but this is just silly.

Sadly a lot of people just cant help it. Some of them are just young while others are just slow at learning any kind of restraint or forethought. I know someone who is in his 40's and he is incapable of learning. He is like a 10 year old, constantly doing stupid things and posting everything on facebook, endlessly making a total idiot of himself. It's quite depressing really but ah well what can you do except hold out hope that people will grow out of it?

End Game?

I am a more "hardcore" type of player. So not having ANY grind at the end of a game for me would be pretty dull, and pointless.

 

I've played almsot every MMO out there, the cost is nothing to be. However, I read that end game is this game is no raids, anti grind, and from what I read borderline pointless. So basically I hit max level and, walk around trying to get titles?

 

I will point out that the videos and gameplay reviews for this game has kind of won me over, but I hated Guild Wars 1.

To me the idea of spending extra money for the privelege of doing repetitive chores for months on end for the reward of digital purple carrots that do nothing except give you access to more repetitive chores seems extremely pointless. Would you play any of those games if there were no carrots? I dont see how that is any more interesting than trying to get titles to be honest. It seems like you are more of an addict that has been conditioned to expect repetition from mmos.

Besides GW2 does not charge you "rent" each month so there is no need for you to feel compelled to live there. You can come and go whenever the fancy takes you.

I am perfectly happy with the price of GW2. It's MUCH better value than any other subscription based mmo. They could charge even more and it would still be better value than its competitors. How much money have you wasted on other mmos with subscription fees?

If you are happy to pay the standard price of any other mmo and then continually pay roughly £10 more every single month just for the privelege of being able to log into it, it seems a bit ridiculous to complain about the price of GW2. It's a mere £15 more than most other games, and for that £15 ArenaNet is giving you a lifetime subscription. Complaining about that makes no sense at all. If any other sub based mmo offered a lifetime subscription for £15 then you wouldnt be complaining about it would you.

I wish all mmos were sold this way. I currently own a number of them but if I want to simply go back and play them for a little while (like any of my other games) then I have to pay a £10 fee for each and every one which is a load of bollocks, especially as I work full time and dont play games every day. Mmos with subscription fees are really bad value for my money. With GW2 I wont have this problem which is great. In fact I hope the price of the game NEVER goes down as ArenaNet deserves every penny of it.

Oh and I couldnt care less about the cash shop as I know that it's optional and isn't like the cash shops found in some other F2P games.........despite all of the silly posts to the contrary.

So you're asking what will be going on in the heads of thousands of different individuals that we have never met? What sort of answer are you expecting from this?

This is funnier.

And the reason why I can't wait to play this game.

Yeah the water bucket thing wasn't particularly funny but the pets death certainly was. I was mightily impressed too. That really looked very realistic. So GW2 uses rag doll physics too? Blimey! This game really is a different breed.

Aww - I almost pity you OP for not managing to grasp the paradigm shift.

All my pity aside: See you in GW2, but I am quite confident I won't miss you when you leave.

Yep and ArenaNet won't miss him either. Everyones a winner!

I would still buy and and pay as much as £15 a month to play GW2, even if it had the current Cash Shop store.

 

I however cannot bring myself to play another MMO such as AoC/WAR/AION/EQ2/WoW/RIFT/SW:TOR and in fact they would need to pay *me* before I even stop laughing at the idea.

 

Guess you were wrong in your assumptions then.

Exactly. This thread is pretty humorous and clearly created with one intention when you consider that this game offers more, even much more, than the vast majority of subscription MMORPGs. It may just offer the most game, at launch, than any MMORPG to date.

Add on top of that the fact that the game was designed from the ground up to avoid or address most of the negatives of status quo MMORPG design and one can start to understand the frustration that lead to this thread and most of the negative comments here in. It' looks to be a broader and better game than the games people are paying a subscription to play, but there is no subscription fee to play it. GW2 not only redefines the MMORPG genre, but it makes many fans of every subscription based MMORPG out there feel like they are being ripped off by their game of choice!

Of course, there must be something wrong with GW2. Some flaw that they can point at to justify what appears to be a huge disparity in value, which just leads to a lot of grasping at straws and self deluding misinformation.

At least they can fall back on their game of choice for grindy, linear, quest hub driven game play and endless "end game" gear inflation treadmills. Arenanet had to leave a niche or two for other games you know, as no game can be everything for everybody, (though GW2 seems to offer much for most).

Buy to Play would have sent ripples through the genre even if paired with a some what less than full AAA MMORPG offering. That the game appears to take on the best subscription based titles in the space and looks very good in comparison might just mean those ripples become a tsunami.

I often ask "Exactly what does your subscription based MMO offer that GW2 doesn't offer just for the box price"? Well?

An excellent reply.

Incredibly I have seen a number of posts in which people actually want the game to have a subscription fee. A lot of people have become extremely comfortable with being ripped off to the point where they actually avidly support it. GW2 may very well highlight this for them. I think a lot of people are not going to like the way that makes them feel about the current games they have "dedicated their souls too". They just dont want things to change, even when it's for the better.

I think you are correct. I think the final question you presented is going to make a lot of people feel a bit cheated by the other mmos with subscription fees......and so it should

Ahhh yes the never ending Vanguard posts. They just keep coming dont they. Year in year out. It's not that popular because it simply isn't that great. It's just an ok game that has a big open static world to wander around in. There are more interesting (and more modern) games to play......and most people are playing them instead of Vanguard. End of story

Np,go and enjoy your other games,it really isnt a big deal for us.Perhaps you don't know but the main reason why their have been many more Vanguard post is because it goes FTP this summer and the devs are finally working on the game again.

You really don't need to answer this post because you wont be playing and why should it matter to you.

You will answer though because you wont be able to help yourself.I know,you are going to tell us your opinions on Vanguard going FTP and how it wont matter,the game is dead,right?

Don't bother i saved you the trouble and said it for you.

I never said I hated the game. I said it is ok but it's not great. When it goes FTP it will be worth a look. I might download it again and have a doodle around with it until I get bored with it again. I expect more people will play it then as well. Currently though for most people it just isnt worth it

ps. Fixing those ugly character models would certainly make it more appealing for me

Knew you wouldn't be able to resist,typical lol.

Who said you hated the game,don't think i mentioned the word hate once in my thread.Going by your "end of story" finisher in your post i get the impression you are fed up about reading threads and post about Vanguard.Your attititude tells the story but again,you really don't have to post in this thread or doodle(is that some kind of instrument) around in Vanguard,plenty of modern games you can play,right?

Indeed. I dont have to post in this thread......but I felt like it.......so I did. Or am I only allowed to enter threads about games that I worship and adore?

But yeah you're right. Plenty of other games for me to play. However when I'm not playing those games I do other things. One of those things is to occasionally read this website and post whatever I like wherever I like. I'm sorry if that upsets you but you're just gonna have to put up with it I'm afraid.

No need for you to answer this post either........unless you choose to of course, in which case you have my permission.

Peace and love and all that bollocks.

You are certainly welcome to post like anyone else, but you are boarderline trolling now. You have no interest in the game, that's quite obvious, other people do...which seems to elude you, and that is what you're interrupting. "End of story".

Many people are excited about the future F2P, regardless if you feel it's a horrible game.

If you question any of this, just ask yourself...why has a thread about Vanguard suddenly become about you? "Because you feel like it."

Thank you for telling me that I have no interest in the game, despite the fact that I have subbed to it on multiple occasions in the past and got some enjoyment out of it each time. I also didn't realise that this was a thread where only absolute praise of the game was allowed. It's strange that you think me saying that Vanguard is an "ok game but not great" is somehow "interrupting" peoples interest for the game. How does that work exactly? We're not actually playing the game here. This is a forum where we are "talking" about it. I'm not interrupting anything.......and yes other people are interested in the game. Why do you think this has eluded me? You make so sense.

I wasn't actually aware that Vanguard was definately going F2P when I first posted. This is good news and is something that has been long overdue. I dont think it's a horrible game (although I do think the character models are......oh gosh! Am I troll for saying that now? Heaven forbid). Like I said I think it is an ok game but not a great one, which is part of the reason why it isn't very popular. It has some nice ideas but they were not implemented very well.

......oops! Sorry I forgot to add ".....in my opinion" onto the end of the previous sentence. Wouldn't want you jumping on me for that too.

Hmmm lets ask myself why this thread has become about me......ermmm......sorry could you explain to me why I need to ask this? I never thought it was. Ask yourself the same question

Yeah because no-one stays around playing non-mmo online games like CoD and Battlefield do they (that's sarcasm for people who dont get sarcasm)

Small man dungeons aren't enough......for you personally. Good thing that small man dungeons aren't the only thing on offer. If they were Rift would still have 800k subs and SWTOR wouldn't be bleeding players atm.

Of course the notion that some players might stop playing those games for other reasons is impossible to consider

Endgame is everything to the majority of the mmorpg community and GW2 has very little meaningful endgame content. 

Thanks for speaking on behalf of the majority of the mmorpg community. It's good to know that you are around to tell us all what we really think. I wish I could personally know what is in the mind of every person who plays mmos but sadly I lack your magic/psychic/super powers.

......actually forget that. I wouldn't want to know that at all (*shudders*)

A-net has gone out of their way to say they do not care if people stick with GW2 because they know the game has no reason for you to commit to it.

Exactly. It's a game, not a job. No-one has to "commit" themselves to a game. You play it to have fun and then when you feel like doing something else you......stop playing it and do something else. That's why no sub fee is such a good idea. You can hop in and out whenever you feel like it, just like nearly every other online game on the market. Mmos with sub fees are the anomaly.

That's proof enough to me that the game is lacking in anytype of endgame content that traditional games have.

GW2 isn't trying to be a "traditional" mmo. That's exactly what ArenaNet are trying not to be. You seem to be a bit confused about what the product ArenaNet is putting out actually is.

I'll still buy it because it doesn't have a sub and im sure many of you have said the same thing.

So there is no problem then. I hope to see more non-traditional mmos in the future with no sub fees. I'm glad you are supporting this with your wallet.

Ahhh yes the never ending Vanguard posts. They just keep coming dont they. Year in year out. It's not that popular because it simply isn't that great. It's just an ok game that has a big open static world to wander around in. There are more interesting (and more modern) games to play......and most people are playing them instead of Vanguard. End of story

Np,go and enjoy your other games,it really isnt a big deal for us.Perhaps you don't know but the main reason why their have been many more Vanguard post is because it goes FTP this summer and the devs are finally working on the game again.

You really don't need to answer this post because you wont be playing and why should it matter to you.

You will answer though because you wont be able to help yourself.I know,you are going to tell us your opinions on Vanguard going FTP and how it wont matter,the game is dead,right?

Don't bother i saved you the trouble and said it for you.

I never said I hated the game. I said it is ok but it's not great. When it goes FTP it will be worth a look. I might download it again and have a doodle around with it until I get bored with it again. I expect more people will play it then as well. Currently though for most people it just isnt worth it

ps. Fixing those ugly character models would certainly make it more appealing for me

Knew you wouldn't be able to resist,typical lol.

Who said you hated the game,don't think i mentioned the word hate once in my thread.Going by your "end of story" finisher in your post i get the impression you are fed up about reading threads and post about Vanguard.Your attititude tells the story but again,you really don't have to post in this thread or doodle(is that some kind of instrument) around in Vanguard,plenty of modern games you can play,right?

Indeed. I dont have to post in this thread......but I felt like it.......so I did. Or am I only allowed to enter threads about games that I worship and adore?

But yeah you're right. Plenty of other games for me to play. However when I'm not playing those games I do other things. One of those things is to occasionally read this website and post whatever I like wherever I like. I'm sorry if that upsets you but you're just gonna have to put up with it I'm afraid.

No need for you to answer this post either........unless you choose to of course, in which case you have my permission.

Peace and love and all that bollocks.
