You guys ever read these books over and over in elementary school?

I once did a book report and chose the shortest path out of the book and then the teacher gave me a bad grade.

Vested individuals will come back for new 3.0 content.  A lot of people will play GW2, and if it sucks or gets boring fast, they can always continue to grind on Aion, because , hey ! - It's F2P now!   It will get a few new players, but mostly the people who will come back are the ones that maxed everything out , that are burned out, and taking a break.

I know I have taken a few breaks from the game, and generally other mmo's I've played for long periods of time.  I'm interested in delving into the new 3.0 content, getting a house for my toon, and reaching the level cap 60, but I am in no rush.  I can treat it as a casual hobby, and play GW2 on the side and switch back and forth whenever. 

This will be a lucrative source of revenue for Anet!  Will this lead to unbalanced servers because it will just make people transfer to the server that is kicking the most ass in WvW?  

Engineer, because it's sad to see it at the bottom of so many peoples' list, and why not play the class your career is IRL. =P

Well GW2 has to compete with WoW, and with any other Online game it just does it quite well.

GW2 does not in any way break out of the  "WoW" model, the main buisness model of WoW is to make top of the line interactive content accessible to all players which multiple MMO's prior to that could not.

This was achived by making the game so accessible that weather you were a 7 yr old kid or a 65 yr old nana you could pickup the game and play it at an enjoyable level. Blizzard understood that constant gratification and ever going stream of new content is required to keep the game alive. WoW was released with more content than any game prior to it, and added more content during its life time than most if not all its competitiors combined.

During its evolution Blizzard was also working on improving the accessibility of end game content which in many MMO's before WoW and even WoW during its vanilla content and even its first expansion lacked. Just compare how many players experienced Nax during vanilla to the Firelands today, it is possible to do  "Hard Mode" raids today in WoW via the group finder tool and clear them out. During the WOTLK i've PUGed LK heroic plenty of times.

And altough i dont fully agree with this philosophy i do appriciate it now since with my busy life sechdule i cant raid for 8 hours straight and farm mats for FR potions and FR armor like i could in my late teens an early 20's.

In that respect from what i've seen GW2 does it and very well, they've removed clasical end game content and intergrated into your entire gaming experince.

Leveling and char development are not longer a staging ground that you need to complete in order to enjoy the game to its fullest and access additional content. Heck for the most part you can skip leveling in general and jump straight into action, and if you enjoy the leveling and the personal story of your char you are welcomed to do it on the side.

GW2 also enables you to interact and play with your friends no matter what gap there is between you, and yes alltough for purely PVE content it works only one way(high to low) it is still better than most solutions currently available in other games such as XP locking.

For me this is a greate feature, i no longer have to worry about out leveling my GF for example and suffer the wrath and i dont have to result to leveling other characters when i have free time to play but my friends are not online. Truly leveling with close friends and family is pretty damn hard these days unless you sepcifically plan for it, and even then unless its only 1 maybe 2 people you level with it wont hold much after couple of days of leveling.

I dont understand why people think GW2 is so diffrent, beyond the fact that they've taken the basic requirements of post teen modern life and built their game aorund that. I never understood the rage people have when a game allows them to exprience more in a shorter period of time, heck every thing today works that way. You have youtube on your cellphones, 100MB is the standard speed for most countries, and since HD VOD came out about 5-6 years ago i cant even remeber what a TV channel is any more, you turn on the TV a nice menu pops up you select a TVshow or a Movie and watch it. So why does it when MMO's do it its bad? I never could figure out if the majority of the posters on this site realy can afford to spend 50 hours a week on a game like i could 7+ years ago, or they realy just like feeling special and more "pro" than any one else by demanding content to be unreachable. Accessiblity does not equal easy mode, any game content weather its end game or not needs to be challenging.

40 Man raids were no hard because they were complex and required top skills and jedi like reflexes, they weren't hard at all, they were inaccessible to many people becasue not every one can gather 40 people every night, or wants to be in a group of 35+ strangers. And atleast the initial requirements and costs of the constant wipes on unbeatable boses(Rag pre-nerf for example) ment that people needed to spend 2-3 hours farming for mats and coin on every hour of raiding they did. Been there done that, played on the #1 ranking US server at the time(Medivh) and i dont want to do it again, sure it was fun but for many of us who finish work at 5-6, come home, go to a gym or the pool for an hour or 2, needs to make dinner, take care of kids, wife or gf, house and stuff its just not realistic.

And yes i've met many people during my EQ and WoW days who were in their 30's or even 40's and still playing the game for 6 hours a day, many of them with their spouses and kids. But a game is a hobby at best and a leasure for most  and not a life style. Most people either can afford or dont want their game to become or dictate their life style, and since MMO's are no longer the dwelling realm of basement goblins and lonely teens no game company can afford to make them as they did in what many people who are plauged with nostalgia call the golden age of MMO's.

So yeah GW2 does compete with WoW, and it does it a hell of allot better than most if not all games released since and including WoW.

As for competing with WoW in the wallet front, GW2 is P2P, no monthly sub but i expect multiple content updates for 10-20US, a vanity store, and atleast a yearly full price expac to keep the mony flowing. So at the end i dont expect it to be any cheaper than a full sub MMO and even those find ways to grab some additional dough from your wallet every now and then just because ou can.

 

This post hits the nail on the head.  Nice post.

"O N E  M I L L I O N ! ! !"

Street fighter series (in arcades in Japan, nothing came close to this social experience except maybe -->

Goldeneye for N64, mostly with friends, and in college had a 'battle of the dorms tournament' that was pretty fun, and then played the crap out of Gran Turismo1 and 2 , with friends and family alot, that was memorable.

FFXI for like 7 years, the nostalgia I get from that will probably never be duplicated in another mmo like many of you have stated.  It was like your first love that broke your cherry, and everyother girlfriend that came after it was not quite up to par.

I've played Aion since 09, going on 3 years, and will probably continue with that because , idk really......

we hit the lego catalog # sweetspot!!

I hope the server transfer fee is high, so people don't abuse it.  The last thing I want is another server-follow-the lemmings trend like what happened in Aion.... god Anet is going to make a lot of money with this service. I knew they had something up their sleeves!

oh, and will it also have a cool-down? days, weeks, months?

I do agree that 'Rogue' is a much better word than 'Thief'.

 

'Buffs' 'Debuffs' and 'DoTs' being condensed down into 'conditions' is long overdue though.

If you played FFXI, Thief > Rouge, hell even Assasin > Rouge....  

Oh I did, actually.  And I mained THF!

 

Thief is still a terrible name for the class.  Rogue is just plain better.

You still have an account on Vaizel Mallace?

 

     How would this be any different from the state of the game as of now?

100 nails in the coffin instead of say maybe 2?

I took your survey.  I thought it was very well layed out.  This website helped me a few years when I did my own studies for university as well, and needed different vehicles for my surveys, so I'd figure I'd pay it forward.

I think I have a problem with authority and have trauma when approaching the opposite sex for meaningful relationships.  Those are some of the questions that have helped me realize things about myself lately. (despite having a good relationship with my parents and peers)

Good luck with your studies! =)

This thread is out of control. (but it's funny as hell)

I don't mind console for the road, and desktop for the home.  This way I don't have to shell out thousands of dollars for a gaming laptop and can upgrade my rig instead.

I played FFXI on ps2, x360, and PC, and can definently say the console was much more comfy and could play much longer without getting fatiuged.  I did a lot of Ballista which was a PvP minigame and totally kicked ass playing monk with a controller.  Once you had your macros set up correctly with the bumpers etc... for me it was actually faster than keyboard + mouse.  With GW2 being more streamlined, I'm sure the controller will be a viable option.  (I lol at all the PC folks claiming "free kills") how do you know? Maybe it will be you being facerolled by a 'lolconsolecontroller'.

Xi lasted so long (I played for 7~8 years), I am a huge fan of cross-platforms.  There are so many butthurt people in this thread that have thier panties all in a bunch.  - I cannot believed I almost missed this thread

=)

 

I blame the media. The media has the power to control through a medium that is so powerful, albiet Pat Tillman, or some celebrity that has recently died to a deadly cocktail of powerful drugs and alcohol. This is the way of our country and the world.

Music never died, it existed for a long time, and is always evovling. 

My Grandfather was a marine, and his countless offpsring were not hard-core enough to belong to the Devil Dogs, including myself. 

/carryon

 

Thanks quiz, I have my eye on the Ivy Bridge, as power consumption means more to me when I'm on the road trying to save battery life in the field, over my home rig which I can blow endless amounts of energy (puts up a deflective shield on greenies XD)... I'll give my laptop till mid-year to buy, and follow the trends.  Until then, I'll just follow the industry for desktop rig G-Card upgrades.  I'll bookmark the thread to keep it as a reference.  - Appriciate the time and knowledge. =)

Thanks, I'll opt for a 580 GTX upgrade later this year and call it a day.

/salute

Buying a GeForce GTX 580 new makes no sense at all unless you're doing something very peculiar that heavily favors Nvidia's Fermi architecture over all others.  A Radeon HD 7950 is faster, cheaper, uses much less power, has a much better feature set, and has double the video memory.

I bought my rig a few years ago, and coincidently I was researching a good graphics card to upgrade my motherboard (asus p6t deluxe v2) before I saw this thread which caught my eye.  I think it would be a nice choice for later this year when the price goes down, because I'll only buy one and have no need to dual SLI or all that jazz.  I know it's still a little bit pricey, but I'm the kind of person that does things once, and doesn't have buyers' remorse for a few years atleast... lol

I'm not really familiar with other brands, as I'm very loyal to Nvidia, I've never had a problem with them, and updates, and all my games ran smooth as butter.  

Before I upgrade my rig though, I want to buy a newer gen gaming laptop to play GW2 on the road, since my new job , I'm on the road 95% of the time.  I want to upgrade my home rig, just because it's nice to have a home base computer, and a road computer.

- Thanks (I will surely research the Radeon, maybe I'm just scared because my little brother used to use a lot of radeon which he overclocked the crap out of) Note: I don't know how, or wouldn't overclock stuff even if I knew how to... lol I just rock things from stock spec in the computer world. The only things I overclock are turbo's and boost pressure in auto's lol... XD
