enjoying my newly buffed ranger, leveling and gearing him up for wvw. 

exploring various builds on my ranger and necro in s/tpvp

running occasional dungeons for PVE fun on my guard main. and more wvw with him. 

 

629 hours logged. i guess im still really loving this game. content patches in early 2013 will blow my freakin mind. 

 

i did take a small break, played through BL2. tried Hawken and PS2 but they just couldnt hold me.

TSW typo maybe?  (it's actually B2P, but still...)

Jes saying - poll is troll bait.

 

I am still playing.

Not really a fair response if you read most of the "I have not been playing for a while" responses. None of them are "this game sux." Most are people who do/did like the game, it just did not hold them for whatever reason. Just because more people claim to have quit than continue to play does not mean they are bashing the game. It just was not for them, why  is that a big deal?

I count myself in that number. I did not hate the game, rather liked it. But my friends left, and the game got boring to me really quickly. Not hating it, not bashing it, but wanting to like it. 

I will probably go back and give it a go again over xmas break, but at this point I am just waiting on the next mmo.

I think I'm with you as well.  I liked the game a lot while I was playing, but now am not.  I believe I predicted I would play for about 2 months, and I actually lasted about 3, which is longer than I lasted in many of the MMOs I've tried in recent years.  I stopped playing around Thanksgiving, and haven't touched it since. It's funny though, I liked it when I was playing it, but don't miss it now that I'm not.  Might go back to it at a later time, who knows.  

Definitely not a horrible game. Liked the challenge of the dungeons. I was in a super friendly guild which made WvW tons of fun.  Played an 80 mesmer, and everytime I tried another class, I hated it.  Mesmer was the only one for me.

It's a themepark done very well...but nevertheless still a themepark. You simply grow tired of it after a while and need something with a bit more depth.  My reason for leaving is probably nothing more, nothing less than that.

Still playing. Have a 80 norn warrior, all exotics, and a MF exotic set. I'm working on 100% world completion for the second time. I play WvW some times and fractals other. Just really waiting for some major content that's not holiday themed.

No

Actually playing XCOM currently and trying to refrain myself from going batshit crazy ordering other games thanks to the Steam sale.

Freakin' bastards

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

I stopped playing about two months ago. I don't think there was anything specifically wrong with the game, rather, I think I just got too busy for it. I don't think the game is that great.

 

I am looking to get back into it. Mostly, because the game doesn't have a subscription fee and there isn't anything else that's grabbing my attention.

  • I tried the the new WoW expansion, but the questing is so linear now. It always was, but it's even worse now.
  • I tried to get back into Vanguard, but the game lags too much and the animations are horrible. I like the idea of Vanguard with the huge world, and deep crafting system, but the horrible implenation killed it for me.
  • I gave Rift another try. The game still has bad animation, but wasn't all that bad. The game felt lonely though. Just not many people to play with.
  • Tried Tera. It's pretty, but the controls feel disjointed. It's something that I should've spent more time playing though. I think it's only $5 now too.
So, with that said, I'm going to lean on GW2 for the time being. Mostly because it doesn't require me to invest any cash into it.

Rangers recently got a lot of fixes so i've been doing some spvp, nothing serious.  Looking forward to doing tournaments again.

They just went free to play.

Edit: Maybe you still have to buy the box version...idk.

Cheers from Tyria

are you kiddin me? I did last night and just simply stood at where everyone was on a rock and auto attack the whole fight and got me my gold.

Stopped with 2 chars, both of equally broken classes, both at level 26, when i recognised that the game is the very same from lvl5 to lvl80 - plus ANet just has no clue how to handle/ fix/ balance classes altogether.

The game is a conglomerate of failed concepts. Casters are forced to melee, Necros aren't Necros, Rangers aren't Rangers, the weapons=skills system is weak, the conditions-system doesn't work, pets don't work, DR punishes players and refuses any loot for days, lack of holy trinity turned out to be a cheap excuse for poorly executed classes/traits, same-o-same hearts and DEs in every zone are a cheap excuse for a decent quest and leveling system, events are a mess, etc. etc.

Since i stopped playing, i still kept on following patches and forums and came to the conclusion that ANet doesn't only have no clue how to handle/ fix/ balance classes, but almost ANYTHING in the game.

Loot, economy, DR, DEs, classes, traits... everything is a mess in game -just as PR, community management, communication and customer treatment is outside.

And with the recent heavy drift towards the item shop (Hello Nexon and Crystin Cox), this game will never be any better.

You didn't really play the game.

So much fail in your statements.

Returned to GW2 when Wintersday started. I'm mostly doing dailies. Finished my karma armor set and other exotics, now trying to farm for crafted armor set. No word for any future expansions or content, so soon will probably get bored/discouraged to continue playing.

Cheers.

Mostly WvW, end game event zergs, helping guildmates and all-around having far more fun than any MMORPG has been able to give me in 4 years. Its about time a game came out that can hold my guilds interest for more than 3-4 months. This game provides everything DaoC could not in terms of RvR, everything SWTOR couldnt in terms of guild events and everything NO game could do in terms of helping friends of lower level by making it so we can PLAY TOGETHER no matter the level and be on the same footing.

No subscription.

No laughable paytrap/freemium crap failed subscription games are pulling by trying to call themselves F2P.

Fewer traditional MMORPGers that drag a game down because that cant handle a game that isnt inside the box most MMOs are in...all while still complaining MMOs are lacking originality...

I will take that any day of the week.

I dont know if u are being sarcastic. I mean, u are talking about all the things that GW2 doesnt have. you must be sarcastic. 

Maybe you should switch servers. i know some that the guilds die, but on a more popular server, it much more than that. You seem to not play, yet. If you came to that conclusion. Since, what he stated is what GW2 DO have. Troll much?

WvW

playing between 1-8 hours a day depending on the day.

since the holidays closer to 8 :P

 

game is extremely imperfect but will stick around indefinitely until better pvp comes along or i get sick of MMOs.  that could be a long time or it could be months from now.

Yes. Perhaps not every day as I don't have the time for that but I am still playing.

I do a bit of everything: I do a daily or a monthly, explore the map, go kill a world boss, do some dungeon, go to WvW, level my alt or just chat or roam around with my guild for a while. And when there's a new content update, like there is now, I do that.

Never argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

I don't play everyday anymore, but that's just an added plus. No need to plan your life around a game. When I play, I play what I want to play. Tons of toons, a very large world, new events to be discovered from the first time around. This game is just getting better and better.

I got bored way before I was even close to consuming 1/3 of the content.  Got two characters to around 40, and a bunch of others to the mid teens, before I stopped playing.  Its been well over 3 months now since I last logged in.

Is a man not entitled to the herp of his derp?

Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.
