Your post starts on the wrong foot, and thus will likely lead nowhere interesting. You insinuate that there are 3 basic attitudes of players toward PVP: -like it -indifferent -scared by it. If you had really wanted to make three mutually exclusive states, the third category would have read: dislike it But no, they are sssscccaaaaarrrreeddd....... What would you say if I described the 3 basic attitudes of players toward PVE: -like it -indifferent -scared by it.

This right here.

Could have been a good discussion, but the OP had to pull out his (most assuredly huge) Epeen by assuming non-PvP'ers are afff-f-f-f-f-f-f-fraaaaaaid!!!  False start called on the first play.

There are plenty of reasons to not like PvP, and seeing as how nothing in PvP causes any RL pain or suffering, there's no reason to think it's fear-driven.

For example, I don't like most forms of PvP for the same reason that I don't like games that tend to support griefing practices by players(Eve being my only and inexplicable exception).  I don't like that I could be wanting to get from point A to point B one days and constantly be ganked halfway by a player twice my level; something that frequently occurred to me in WoW.

If you were driving along in RL one day and you kept encountering some situation which made you go back to point A, would you be:

A.  Sss-s-s-s-s-s-s-scarrrrr-r-r-red?

or

B.  Pissed?

Nobody plays games that piss them off.

You are right. The total ammount of gather bots, chinese farmers, chinese gold sellers, pvp bots, leveling bots is aroud the same. The total ammount of player base is so small you wont believe it. 

I'm curious; what do you think the ratio is of "real player" to the "non-player" types that you mention?

Originally posted by lizardbones

I won't play the game with a sub. I can't say that's because the game isn't worth it though. I think they've done a really good job, and the game is pretty close to what they said they were going to do. I'm just (a) tired of subs and (b) tired of quest hub driven MMORPG progression.

I think they did a great job with the quests, but it just felt too much like running between quest hubs, doing the same old stuff I did with every other quest hub game.

This is pretty much where I was at, though I don't even mind quest hubs that much.  I played shortly after launch, played my free month and quit. 

The quests just might be among the best I've experienced in MMO's.  Great atmosphere, great story, some pretty good puzzle concepts... the single player aspects were pretty much on par for a good single player game.  If they had gone the GW2 B2P w/mt model, I might be playing, these days.

I quit due to lack of content, the non-lack of bugs, and basically just a short playtime for an MMO.  While the zones are good sized, the world is tiny, tiny, tiny.  There's just not enough of anything to justify a monthly subscription.  And finally, the combat was often just annoying, as the game world was mob-populated for a stand and attack game, so you'd keep getting adds as you dodged and moved.

Lastly, there's almost no replayability; certainly no reason to roll a new toon since the story differences are just cosmetic and no faction has any exclusive playability.  The moment in beta when I realized that almost every mission is repeatable I should have known what was coming:  A non-linear Diablo-esque replay experience but without the loot.  Rerun the missions over and over, fill out the wheel and get your purples.

Still, I hesistate to call it a ripoff, as I paid 50 bucks for it like I would any SPG, played it til' "the end" and quit.  I supposed I could say it's a rip since I could still play that game now if it were an SPG...

Squirrel Girl, because squirrels.

Sadly, she's not Marvel, being a character from The Tick.  Which means they should buy the rights to The Tick and include those characters. 

I'd die to play Sarcastro...

Edit:  oops... my bad.  there IS a Squirrel girl.  The Tick character is a parody of her. 

Howard the Duck! 

C'mon, man... he's a classic!

Yes.  It's a good game, one that has a good number of ideas that newer MMO's would be idiots not to implement.  And it has addressed nearly every problem I've ever had with MMO's.

That said, it does not ruin older games for me.  Still love LotRO, despite some systems that I can't help but snicker about in comparison; some of which they try to address in RoR.  See?  GW2 is already influencing the genre...

I love Eve.

I'll still check out WoW if they send me a free pass.

But in my book, GW2 fulfilled all its promises, and has as much content, often even more content than most sub based MMO's.  And I see myself playing it for a long time.

While mmorpg is still trying to jam GW2 down everyone throat Lotro next expansion is out and its looking like a good one. Here are a few features I have been enjoying. 1.The music in Rohan is amazing one of the best in any Mmo ive played. 2. The story continues 3. Mounted combat is new and pretty fun. Takes a little to get used to but once you get the hang of it, its fun. 4. I love the new combat tagging system no more fighting over mobs 5. Rohan looks great. Their are a few bugs but what mmo expansion does not have them. My kinmates and I are having a great time. Just wanted to throw out a little headup to people since "the staff" here is busy.

I like GW2, actually.  But yeah, I'm playing Rohan, and will go back to GW2, later.

1.  I DO like the redone login music, as well as Rohan's music.  The same piece, sure, but rearranged and much more dynamic.  The recording quality even seems much better.

And I like that some of the "townsfolky" music has some "out-of-tuniness/imperfect timing" to some of the instruments and performances.  It feels more like "decent but imperfect players playing on old instruments" like you would hear in middle earth.  Something tells me 13 dwarves all playing instruments and singing would sound less than perfect.  There's an authenticity to it.

2.  And it's been a good story, so far.  It's really nice to finally get back to the fellowship.

3.  I already yakked about that, above.

4.  Amen!  And instant/remote looting!  A must for mounted combat, but also very helpful for ranged classes to not have to go running down the body.  Devs, PLEASE put this into the rest of the game...

5.  Definitely looks good, but definitely uses way more memory on my machine.  Good thing I have plenty to spare.

Originally posted by Sovrath

What is the level where one can actually enter Rohan?

I think my character is 68.

I don't think you're artificially blocked.  You can even do the Epic by using a rope outside the gate to Lothlorien to access Galadriel.

Mob-wise, though, they start at about 76th level.

I haven't been too big on mounted combat in the open world, so far; it seems like you just keep circling and firing, often aggroing a half dozen other mobs nearby.  But there's an instance called "the riders four" where you go after mobs on horses, and THAT is awesome.  I was actually bummed when it ended.  They should do some skirmishes like this.

I don't know how fast the horses go comparatively to standard mounts, but I'm specced for speed (16 m/s, whatever that means), and it looks and feels like real horse speed at a full run.  The big negative is that it feels like the server is having trouble keeping up.  I don't rubber band, but it feels like the server is pulling me back.

The rest; pretty cool so far.  I'm through the east wall and a good chunk of the way through the norcrofts.  Anybody annoyed with raid gear being obsolete the moment they step in shouldn't be; almost all my gear was crafted 75 crits, and I didn't start to see stuff that even competed til' about level 78.  I still have most of my original gear at 79th level.

Hmm, gotta think about this one.

Beat me to it...  

I'll bless anything he does, as long as it's a game.

Have to say I was really letdown by your list...

 I would of went with the focus on open world planets, open world PvP like Bounty Hunting (no instanced pvp such as battlegrounds, arena,etc) the crafting, the professions skill system, one character with the ability to untrain and train skills, no levels, player cities, reasons for players to go to buildings such as cantinas/taverns.   

 But I guess everyone has their own taste.  I guess I would summarize mine under all the immersive, social aspects of SWG, rather than multi-person mounts...

I'm pretty sure they were trying to be realistic; offer suggestions that might be somewhat do-able.  I could actually imagine multiplayer vehicles, for example.  provide tools for player events, etc.

Your suggestions add up to "make TOR into SWG".  Even big maps like Hoth and Tatt would never accommodate player made cities, for example.  You'd have to rewrite the whole game.

Will I play as consecutively as I am right now? More than likely not.

 Will I play past 2012? Absolutely I will. Why -wouldn't- you come check up on an already paid for MMO when large content patches go Live?

This.  And...

It is, and always was meant to be a sub free alternative to my MMO playlist, and it has since exceeded my expectations.  I was addicted for a few weeks, playing MUCH too much.  I almost literally had to pry myself from it.

As far as how long it will stay on my drive, right now I see it much like I see LotRO, my mainstay, which I've been subbed to for over 4 years.  There will be times when I won't play for weeks.  There will be times when I'll play for weeks nonstop.  The only diff is, GW2 won't cost me a sub.

You'll have to do a 5 key combo for each of your active powers, now.

I have no care or say on the TSW, however you are absolutely wrong on your definition of content.

 If you can run the October event during the event timeframe, it is content. Content is not in any way shape or form defined by how long it stays around. There are games which have once only quests, so because your character can never go back and do them after the first time they're not content? Yes, they are in content and yes in every MMO special holiday content is...... content.

Indeed.  If we get to redefine content, we can even go after Rift, despite the fact that Trion has been dumping unprecedented amount of stuff on its players since launch.  I'm actually not too fond of the game(Rift), but their patch notes look like Santa's naughty list.  Credit where credit is due.

A new weapon is content.  A holiday event is content.  New NPC scripting is content.

Mission output is dying down; that's a fair enough statement.  Once all the half done stuff that wasn't available at launch gets finished, you see this happen.  Happened with most every MMO I've played.

That said, FC should have never promised monthly content.  With or without the layoffs, that's a release schedule that's doomed from the start.  It's just not a long enough period to get material tested and shipped, and it shrinks the scope and ambition of the game.

SWG couldn't do it, DCUO couldn't do it, TOR couldn't do it, and TSW can't do it.  These companies REALLY need to stop promising these sorts of things.

Seriously, what is up with the WoW threads in the GW2 section saying "Quitting GW2...going back to WoW" and the GW2 threads in the WoW section saying "Quitting WoW...going back to GW2"

 These forums have the be some of the most toxic ever.

 BTW, it's ok to like multiple games in the same damn genre...christ.

It's been this way as long as I can remember.  And it has never made sense.

Even moreso in this case.  Quitting a game generally means you stopped subbing to it.  GW2 doesn't have a sub, so saying you quit is pretty pointless, anyway.  If the game provides any enjoyment at all, there's no need to dump it.

Getting really tired of the sports team mentality that people seem to feel the need to have about everything, these days. 

I've stopped playing GW2 for the moment, as I'm gearing up my toons for my mainstay MMO, LotRO, RoR.  But I'll definitely be back.

I've cancelled my Eve sub, but I'll be back.

If Blizz gives me a free MoP trial, I probably will check it out.

F2P Secret World?  Bring it on!

Free from the "I like X game, so Y game is da suxxorz" self inflicted trap, my game queue is massive and I'm having a blast.

Originally posted by Kyleran

Not a lot of people joining up new, and no real incentive to create alts to re-run content, going to leave a real void at the lower levels.

Best to wait for it to go F2P which will breath new life into the lower levels.

 

Ya can pretty much end the thread with this one. 

It's a fun ride to Transylvania, but with almost all the content being repeatable, every character able to have full access to every skill and there being such a miniscule difference between the content of the factions, there's not much reason to reroll.

They may as well allow you to reset the main story so you can do it, again.  I'd like to run every piece back to back so as to fully understand the context.  But before I'd reroll a new toon and labor through the content I've already done a half dozen times, I'll just watch somebody else go through it on youtube.

In regard to the thread title, well.... they ARE the law, in their game.

The thread was not entirely malicious, but if you do know that this problem was debated in another thread, why did you start your own? I hate users that create threads just because they can.

You could have just reported the bug, right?

sometimes if you want to get heard you have to directly do something that will be noticable. reason why i created this thread and it was directly a question towards john peters. it's not a matter of you can or not. that is how life is dude. if you ever want to be heard you don't sit behind someone else to talk for you. that is why they have debates in countries :)

I meant why did you start another thread and not debate the problem in the existing one? Was that not the most logical choice?

Do we really need to start each of us a thread about the same problem/question? Can't we all join in on a single thread and discuss it there, like we do here?

P.S. Aww, I see, you're one of the guys that adresses the devs directly, and demands a reply, because they have nothing to do but watch the forums for that special user. Get over it, and use existing threads!

This.

It's their game.  Their forums.  They are the law.

Normally, Anet would have removed the thread or just copied it to the original.  But in the OP's post, the OP openly admitted to starting a new thread despite the fact that a thread had already been created on the subject.  That in itself violates the CoC.

In the OP's comments here, they noted that they made their post with the idea of nagging Anet until they provide an answer that he/she would accept.  Hopefully they understand that badgering others is also against the CoC.

IP is like a paint job on top of the game - the nuts and bolts. I strongly feel that the game should come first and IP should be developed around it, not the other way round.

For example, the Jedi sound nice in the books and movies but they translate poorly into games. As they are portrayed, they are outrageously overpowered compared to anyone else in that universe. Same for the wizards in Eddings' books, they're practically demigods.

Authors rarely create their fiction with games in mind. Also some have no clue about developing good games: quidditch anyone?

This right here.  While there are probably other reasons IP games are often substandard, a pre-established IP ties the hands of a game developer in many respects.

Take LotRO, for example.  Imagine if Turbine put Griffon rides in there... or even worse; a Great Eagle taxi system...

What if they wanted to create an Asuran type race?  Or some steampunk type technology?  What if they wanted to have a whole zone based on something like "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks"?

Turbine would be "shoot on sight" for LotR fans.  Meanwhile, games like Rift, WoW, and many others could do it without a problem.

Other than the annoyance of wasting time trying to find a way into the zone when there isn't one, I don't get the issue.

If GW2's map was a diminuitive little thing like DDO was at launch, I'd be upset.  But the traversable map is MONSTROUS, and the idea that all those chunks here and there might open up in the future is just pure geekgasm.

This seems an ill contrast compared to the stories about the older expacs, people would line up at midnight for their copy, even for Cat, despite their not even needing to.

Even with electronic sales excluded, I think it's fair to say that WoW is now officially in decline.

Nothing to be ashamed of; it was inevitable, and it's been a good run.  Fun was had, and no doubt money was made.  But nothing lasts forever.

Far as the GW2 vs. WoW argument goes, that's a dumb argument, anyway.  This isn't football; WoW doesn't have to lose for GW2 to win, or vice versa.  Nor does one losing mean that the other is winning.  They're both games.  I bought GW2, and while I skipped out on MoP, Blizzard has gotten a share of my money in the past and it was well earned.

Yep.  They need to be planning F2P... like, yesterday.
