Fair point, aesthetics isn't really something you can argue about, very much a matter of personal taste. I guess you can take off the suit ...

what does GW1 have to do with GW2? GW1 didnt even qualify as an MMO, whereas GW2 is THE next gen MMO.

Don't know how good GW2 really is but it is definately not as good as the hype suggests (no game in existence has ever been). Only a play test can tell.

 

I admit the combat in Tera sounds intriguing, however the fact that skills root you in place leaves a foul taste in my mouth. By comparison, GW2 allows you to cast and shoot while actually moving, with very few skills having a rooting action. GW2 simply sounds like a more active, dynamic combat system to me personally.

Woah, woah, woah.

I'm just as excited about GW2 as you seem to be, but lets face facts here.  The game has not released yet.  ArenaNet has delivered on exactly 0% of their promises at this point in time.

Sure, the game looks really great in beta, everything that ArenaNet has been saying about their game seems to be there, which is why I'm really excited for it.  But I also know that something could go horribly wrong before release.

I mean what if they can't get WvW working correctly and have to scale it down, like only having WvW instead of WvWvW because the amount of people crashes the server.  I'm not saying this will happen, but it isn't completely crazy either.

If you say that won't happen I have 1 example of it already happening.  Scouts and renown hearts.

Originally ArenaNet came out to say they were really excited to not have quests and you were going to be left up to your own devices to find the dynamic events.  Then a few months later we find out they added traditional-ish quests and NPCs to talk to because some twats who apparently have never played actual RPG games before test the game out and run by all of the screaming villagers and houses on fire because they don't have a quest to help those people.

Now personally, I liked the way it was before.  I like the feel of having a completely open environment to just explore.  Don't get me wrong, I understand exactly why ArenaNet had to do what they did, and I also understand I don't have to use the scouts or complete the renown heart quests but they are there, and that bothers me.

Edit:  I'm also quite leery about the Mesmer in it's current state.  Mesmer was my favorite class from GW1, but in GW2 it seems really boring.  I mean, I don't see the need for 2-3 different skills in every weapon set that uses clones.  It almost feels like ArenaNet gave up and just said, "I'm tired of thinking of skills, just make everything clones!"

"There is as yet insufficient data for a meaningful answer."

The only reason why you wouldn't want to play GW2 is because you think you know better than everyone else who is excited for it, you think you got it aaallll figured out don't ya? You think we are all fools 'cos you think this game is going to fail... Well, let me tell ya something, we're all fools biache and nothing is going to change that. Where you're standing or how much you push your chest out is not going to change that.

 

This is not a game.

In other words, you don't know what you're talking about. Do some research and get back at me.

WvW is one of their main features, and it is laggy and choppy as hell.  That can be a pretty big deterrent for wanting to play the game.

Well, lets tell the whole story here. It's still in closed beta with an unknown release date, at this time. There were SOME of the press that had lag issues, others stated they didn't notice it at all. And, last but not least, the videos WE have seen had fraps running in the background, which would certainly affect the performance. They've stated that they still have alot of optimizing to do, obviously if the game launches with a ton of lag in WvW, that would be very detrimental. 

Reading the various posts in this thread can be very frustrating, to be honest. There are alot of half-truths and flat out incorrect responses in this thread. Now, play whatever game you want, it's your money...but honestly, if you don't even know what you're talking about and post anyway, you're setting yourself up to get flamed by 'fanbois'.

Including coming from you, with how you try to twist things into a positive light, when in reality the game just couldn't handle large scale fights in wvw.  It was choppy and laggy like wintergrasp was in WoW.

i hope your jokeing here. there is this funny thing called taste with varies from person to person. But your right we are all alike and all like the same things, people who dont are faking it so that they can be seen as cool or superior. Right.

Because i can.

How is this Apples and Oranges when it's called "Apples 2" ?   I also did not like GW1, but on top of that watching the floppy eared asura skip through the game world did it in for me. I actually wanted to like this game but memory and the visuals of what is coming make it incompatible to my tastes.

List of reasons someone might not want to play Guild Wars 2:

  1. Not much in terms of max level character progression.
  2. No world PVP.
  3. No raids.
  4. Tired of instancing.
  5. Most of the content will likely not be very diffcult (I wouldn't expect dynamic events which by definition are meant to be done by PUGs forming out of thin air to pose any challenge).
  6. Lack of sandbox features.
  7. Fast leveling.
  8. Tired of fantasy.
  9. Know better than to fall for the hype.

Can I honestly tell you why for the longest time I was dead set against Guild Wars 2?

The community. More specifically, the majority of the Guild Wars 2 fans on this website. I honestly got so tired of hearing how much better Guild Wars 2 was than this game or that game. The constant belittling of World of Warcraft or The Old Republic. It just honestly got really old, ,really fast but I couldn't deny that the game at least looked like it was going to be a good game. So, my hope is that I'm wrong about the Guild Wars 2 community once I actually get into the game and play.

I don't believe in perfect games and I believe there's enough room for more than 1 or 2 successful MMOs and it's great to have pride in a game but I think a little humilty goes a long way because it wasn't too long ago that we had legions of people going on and on about how much better Finaly Fantasy XIV was going to be than all these other games and look how that turned out. I'm optimistic about the game and I have no doubt that it's going to be really good but I just hope there's a decline in the elitist attitude about this game.

I'd say the two major contributing factors of anyone not wanting to play GW2 are preference... and in larger part, ignorance.


Why do I write, create, fantasize, dream and daydream about other worlds? Because I hate what humanity does with this one.

Firstly, Guild Wars 1 is complete and utter trash to me. I've tried to get into that game multiple times, and each time I get bored and quit after an hour or so. So that right there makes me cautious.

Secondly, all of the videos I've seen of GW2 combat make it look identical to pretty much every other MMO out there, except for the fact that you have to dodge a powerful attack occasionally. Wow, that's soooo groundbreaking and awesome... except for the fact that you have to do that in pretty much every MMO out there already. So that's a bust.

Thirdly, I like playing tanks and healers. Since there's no 'holy trinity' in this game... WTF am I supposed to do? Everyone plays a self-healing DPS then? We tank by jumping around the screen like a squirrel with ADD? Wow, that sounds like so much fun... no wait, it sounds idiotic.

And fourthly, I despise PvP and the community that usually springs up around those types of games, especially the ones that consider themselves 'E-sports' (a ridiculous concept in and of itself, IMO). Since the game doesn't have any form of raiding, what am I supposed to do after I hit the cap? Do 5-mans forever, or will there be the typical slew of daily quests to complete? Neither option really seems all that appealing.

I'll probably end up giving the game a shot, but I'm sure not hyped up for it.

"How could you not want to play GW2?"

Because it's another in 1000 fantasy MMOS out there.

I try to keep that in mind. I played the original Guild Wars and I never had a problem with the community so I am hoping that carries over into this game, LOL. It's tough seeing games get continually bashed, especially when I'm playing those games. But at the end of the day, we all just want a quality game to play and soetimes we get very passionate about that. I just prefer to do so in a more respectable way. But that's just me. I appreciate your comment and the encouragement. I'll definitely be buying the game... I mean, there's no subscription fees after I buy the game... so why not? LOL
