Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes. Looking for a game to take over WOW as my Casual game.

Do you currently play this game?: Yes. I bought it already and will play it.

If yes, please explain why: It has all the Themepark elements in the right place and it is not boring as many of the latest AAA Themeparks.

If no, please explain why: N/A

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

EVE and Tera

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

I don't post much on this forum. GW2 don't need to be defended or criticised, it stands on its own feet.

It will do well whether some people like it or not.

Do you currently play this game?:  I've played all three beta weekend events and will be playing on Launch.

If yes, please explain why:  I was impressed enough by ANet's promises and the fact that others had played the game to pre-purchase a copy for myself, thereby gaining access to the BWE's.  I play/will play GW2 because it does something different.  After years of WoW, I'm burnt out on the type of treadmill and restrictions games like those feature at their core.

Were you interested in this game before it came out?   Yes.

 

Why?    Design of the game got my attention.

 

Do you currently play this game?:   Whenever the server is up, Yes.

 

If yes, please explain why:     First time, in a very long time, I am enjoying a decent PvP game that wasn't obviously made with  an half-ass attitude.

 

If no, please explain why:      N/A

 

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:    Currently nothing.  Last MMO played: Star Wars: The old Republic, played mostly for the story/NPC conversations (Bioware fan)    and Aion:  for the PvP.

 

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

To share my thoughts with the community, whom might find them interesting and/or helpful.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

No, not interested. When I realised that GW2 has many fans and that it would be a high-profile release I looked into it.

Do you currently play this game?:

No.

If yes, please explain why:

---

If no, please explain why:

I stopped playing mass market themeparks years ago.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

I play only one MMORPG at a time, currently it's Wurm, since 3 or 4 months. Full sandbox experience, no quests, no developer-made story, more to do than combat alone. Terraforming, creating my personal space, building and crafting, contributing to the village and the kingdom, keeping my region of the land safe for travellers.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

Posting very infrequently on this particular forum, have made maybe 6 or 7 posts here. MMORPGs are one of my hobbies, I find it interesting to see how high-profile releases go and what games can draw a mass audience.

I maintain this List of Sandbox MMORPGs. Please post or send PM for corrections and suggestions.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:  yes. I played GW1 and enjoyed it and after seeing videos and features for GW2, it has me excited.

Do you currently play this game?no

 

If yes, please explain why:

 

If no, please explain why: I always wait for MMO's to mature for a few months to work out the bugs.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: Eve Online for the PVP. Plus my corpmates (guildmates) are cool. I love sandbox MMO's the most. I also play Aion and City of Heroes. Currently waiting on SWTOR to go F2P and Planetside 2 to be released.

If no, please explain why:

If no, please explain why:  Tried it during beta and it still seemed fairly similar to my past games.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: Extremely. I thoroughly enjoyed GW1 and had been looking forward to the next expansion (the supposed 'Utopia') when I read it was canceled and work had begun on GW2 instead. That was many years ago at this point, and I'd been googling "Guild Wars 2" daily ever since for more news. Tyria is the first game world I've delved into the lore for, because I found it that interesting. It also had the most unique classes for its time (Mesmer, Ritualist, Dervish, for instance) which is great for alt-whores like me that want to stay entertained while leveling tons of classes. Naturally that fervor would transfer to GW2, especially with an open-world and higher level cap.

 

Do you currently play this game?: Technically, yes, since I was playing since BWE1 even if the beta events were sporadic.

 

If yes, please explain why: After 3 events, I've only been left wanting more. I've been through the starting zones probably 8 times each at this point and I'm STILL not tired of them. The Dynamic Event system ensures each run through a zone is different, and also means you're potentially "raiding" right from level one, bosses popping out all over the place and everyone in the area gathering to fight together, without having to shout "LFP!" One of my best experiences so far is actually at level 5, when I was crushing spider eggs in the human starting zone farm and there were enough people around that the Spider Queen appeared and started tearing into the crowd, and everyone gathered to take it down. Too much fun.
 
 

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: None, I'm tired of the sameness of most MMOs and those that do something different (like EVE) are too radically different for my taste. Games like SWToR (for its story) and TSW (for its investigative missions) interest me, but not enough to pay for. The money is better spent on a single player game, where I'll get more value than paying a monthly fee for one facet of a game that would only entertain me for a week.

 

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? It's the bestest, evar. That, and people's preconceived bubbles of ignorance are fun to burst.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes. I was interested and following it's progress but was going to play a wait and see at launch.

 

Do you currently play this game?:

Received the game as a wedding gift and will be playing on the 25th of August.

 

If yes, please explain why:

It has a fresh feel to it. The WvW is amazing fun and the art style is incredible.

 

If no, please explain why:

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

Vamguard:Saga of Heroes.  I like it's old school feel and open world.  The classes are interesting as well.

 

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

I hardly ever post in the forums here as you can see.  More of a lurker I guess.

1) Duh?  The game hasn't come out and I'm totally interested in it.  Because it brings several different things together.   The crazy cosmetic gear chase of TF2, the 5v5 map battles similar to League of Legends, the WvWvW sieges that actually WORK instead of being some 1/2-arsed promise ala WAR or AoC, the crafting that's amazing...and just the beauty of the world locations.  The game feels alive.

 

2) Yes, I play this game every BWE and Stress test.  See above for reasons why.

 

3) I'm currently playing NO particular MMO titles.  Does League of Legends count?  Otherwise I'm  burned out on all MMO's until GW2 releases.

 

4)  Because I'm currently obsessed with Guild Wars 2 and am counting down until it officially launches.  Because discussing it's features, faults, possitives and such helps pass the time until the day finally comes when it comes out (20 days, 13hrs, 3 minutes).   And because on MMORPG this site dedicates a forum to specific games, where other sites it's only single threads to individauls games and that's not enough.

Interest grew with first bits of information few years ago. Then GW became the most anticipated MMO for me.

 

Do you currently play this game?:

No

 

If no, please explain why:

Because its not out yet? Im thinking about buying GW2 tho. Just for fast arena PvP and learning combat mechanics. Not interested in other aspects of it.

 

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

Only The Secret World. I think it is the best MMORPG in last 8 years (since WoW). And yes, overal better then GW2. But I'm more interested in GW2' s PvP.

 

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

Not a frequent poster. Just saw this topic on front page.

 

didnt even play the game but can already say another game is better...

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:  

Yes, I was extremely interested in GW2.   First heard about it about 5yrs ago when I was playing Guild Wars and noticing things which could be improved.  Someone in my guild heard my suggestions/complaints and said there would be a GW2.  I was very excited and went googling immediately.  

 

At that time there was only the option on ArenaNet's page to sign up for a newsletter, so I did ... and heard nothing for years!  My main interest was that I enjoyed GW, but there were things which I didn't like, such as no world map, heroes/companions (although I was mixed about that).  Can't really remember the details now it's such a long time ago, just that I had a strong feeling that GW itself could be improved upon and made into a wonderful game.  

Do you currently play this game?: 

Played all betas and stress tests so far.  Pre-purchased so will be playing headstart, too.

 

If yes, please explain why: 

 It has so many features which appeal to me: no quests as such just heart events which you can take part in or not; strong storyline for character development and immersion; 3 server pvp; beautiful, open world to explore; multiple starting areas; local and world events which affect environment, npc's etc; interesting combat with GW-style limited action bar; ability to change combat style by weapon-swop; downed state; no trinity so anyone can heal/rezz; buy-to-play = no subscription to make me feel guilty if I'm unable to play; no gear/level grind ... the list goes on and I'm sure I'll add to it over time.

 

If no, please explain why:

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:  Nothing else atm.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?  The fact that Guild Wars 2 is the first game in a long time which has actually made me feel excited, hopeful and very interested in what other people's thoughts/feelings are on the game.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

yes i was - mostly because i consider its exploring features and especially the dynamic events as a amazing ideas and huge step in the right direction. away with quest log! I also like fact that you can discover crafting recipes by combining ingredients.

Do you currently play this game?:

If yes, please explain why:

If no, please explain why:

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

Haven & Heath for my sandbox fix - i love creating items, building and farming a lot more then i love combat and (most of) questing (by that i mean in all games overall, not specificaly H&H combat)

The Secret World - because it has great PVE elements - lore, dialogs and quests - tho i sometimes think it would be better as a single player game then as a mmorpg.

Vanguard (when H&H and TSW left any time) - because it has imo best crafting process of all mmorpgs, diplomacy is stroke of genius and world is amazing to explore
