I won't support a developer who blatantly lies to the playerbase like that.  The level of bait and switch is astounding, after YEARS of saying one thing they change it like it's no big deal when it was actually the key issue that appealed to a great many people, myself included.  Then they won't even face the heat, they just release a half ass reply that pretty much just says "this is how it is now, deal with it" and lock an 11,000 post thread.

Anet is never getting another cent from me, and I'll do my best to talk my friends out of playing any game with their name on it in the future.  I've encouraged my friends to return to their previous games with some success, and I'll keep leaning on the people I know who are still playing to walk away from it.

I played GW1 and bought every xpac.

I preordered GW2 deluxe.

Bought and used gems, mostly for extra bank space, but for a few other little things as well.

Done with anything and everything Anet permenantly, unless they remove ascended gear from the game/reduce the stats to Exotic level/something like that.  I think we all know that's not going to happen.

If they like the game what then? It does happen. Will go Don Corleon on them? Just saying.

 

It is not as bad as people are making it out to be.

 

It is what it is - enjoy the game, play it - don't enjoy the game, don't play it. It is pretty easy really.

 

A.Net didn't BLATENTLY lie - that is a stretching of the truth a bit - mountain out of moehill type of stretch.

 

They did talk about different levels of armor before the game was released, so the information was out there. If people ignored that, is it A.Net's fault if they only heard what they want to hear?

judging from some of the people that post here, it's Anet's fault if you order the wrong thing for lunch.

All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

Since everyone just love to base their assumptions whether the game is doing fine or not with their friends and guilds I will do the same. before weekend event my guild  had 20-30 players online during the week and 30-40 during the weekends. This weekend we had 70 players online and now we have 30-40 daily. So it must have been a mass exodus from other games to GW2.

I'm not giving a conclusion one way or the other as my Server may not be an accurate representation.

As others have said, people who are happy with the game, don't usually post unless there is a technical problem, etc. People who don't like the game or just dislike it (I will not use the word hate any more) will post because they feel they need to be heard. That is fine but, don't take those posts as the majority of players or anything else. They are the people who want to complain.

 

Complain away, but pleae be educated about the complaints.

Dear sir thank you.   today is the day I have been on these forums (not registered) since 2004 made an account over a year ago, but today is the day I will be leaving and also you are correct in that post. Happy holidays, see you guys in game.

 

Add me in-game we will have some fun.

That would not happen if some basic forum rules (*) would be applied more regularly. Not blaming the mods, they need to deal with insane amounts of posts every day, but maybe they need to hire more moderators for all time zones.

(*) The rule I'm talking about:

  • Trolling
    • Posting excessive negative comments or baiting others to respond in a negative manner is considered trolling on the MMORPG.com forums.
      For example: If there is one game that you did not enjoy, voicing your opinion is encouraged. Posting this opinion in every thread concerning that game to the point that it disrupts all other conversation is not tolerated.
If that rule was better applied, 90% of the negative spam would be gone in less than a week and only the constructive critics would be left. It's always sad to see good, constructive posters go because of the negativity spamming trolls.

Nonsense, if you don't have the stomach for a good debate, or the wisdom to avoid threads that annoy you, then leaving is probably for the best.

It's more of a problem of background noise exceeding normal discussion (as said in the forum rule I've quoted above). And the "good debate" part made me really laugh when I've read it... the people I'm talking about don't look for a debate. Those who look for a debate do not break the quoted forum rule.

Anyway this is off topic in this thread, and I only posted in reaction to the poster leaving the forum and announcing it here, so this will be the last post about this for me in this thread. Back to the "topic"...

I keep seeing a fair amount of people wherever I go, although with best items in 1 single place it is easy to see where most people flock.

I think instead of doing these events last1 weekend long, they should last a couple of weeks, like halloween or like most events lasted in GW1.

I would also really prefer if they stopped adding important phases of events on days like xmas - it is a family day why are they luring us to the PC?

I also didn't like how short phase 3 and phase 4 of halloween events were compared to the rest of it.

Also more work in the open world instead of instances, please.

Currently playing: GW2
Cooperative (semi cooperative)board games you should check: Pandemic, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Eldritch Horror, Descent 2.0,Level 7 Omega Protocol, Last Night on Earth

It's funny, I've been hearing people say since September that the game is "dead". I just started a new warrior this week and I've found no shortage of player activity, even in the low level zones.

I know. Currently running around Queensdale with my norn and there are still people all over the place.

Yesterday, when I logged into my account after not playing much for the past month, I noticed that there were only 3 members of my guild online out of 150. 

 

However, all of the servers for both EU and NA were High or Full. A couple of times I checked and there were maybe 2 servers at Medium. 

 

So I don't know what happened to my guild. I quit it and changed to another server. All I know is according to what I saw, servers are full or high.

Even if the mass exodus does not occur, GW2 is dead to me and my circle of friends.  And it has little to do with the introduction of the gear grind treadmill mechanic because my friends and I can do that with the best of them in games that advertise and market themselves as such, so as to make it perfectly clear to the consumer what it is they are paying to play. 

 

Anet, on the other hand, preached heavily against gear grinding and hamster treadmills throughout its entire development period, and specifically marketed themselves as the "anti-gear grind game," only to do a quick 180 "switch & bait" just two monts after release and introduce exactly what they had preached against for years.  This they did without warning, and only AFTER squeezing every last penny they could squeeze out of their long time loyal fan base, many who had been supporting Anet for years specifically because of their anti-gear grind philosophy.  

 

And please don't get it twisted.  This is not about whining or crying.  I am fully aware that its their game and, as such, they are entitled to do with it as they please.  What this is about, however, is principle.  My friends and I absolutely refuse to support a company that engages in such deceptive, shameful, and frankly, despicable practices.

 

Enjoy your treadmill.

Want to R E A L L Y exprience grinding...try crafting.Key item you need to craft  are random drop.So you spend 3-4 hours grinding to get some of what you need. So much for the non grinding claim.

(when's ESO coming out again ? )

What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

11/23/12 11:53:36 PM#259
Yep, game's dead so stop complaining about it, speculating about its demise and accusing its developer of lying to players and let those of us who want to play with its corpse play in peace.

You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

The game is alive just like any other mmo game outthere but the hardcore fans who wanted the "Death of World of Warcraft" have recently woken up with a hangover beyond belief.

 

Folks, this game is okej! But that is about it...okej, nothing more!
