Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:
 
Yes I was interested although I didn't follow every little detail of the game.   I looked forward to it for something new to try out.
 
Do you currently play this game?:
 
No I haven't purchased it yet.  I plan on waiting a few days til all the opening day craziness dies down.  I've played in other MMO's at release and its usually a big fubar with too many people in one area. 
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:
 
I recently started playing Rift.  Did the free trial got a couple characters to 20 and decided to subscribe.  No particular reason to play just thought I'd give it a try.
 
What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?
 
I haven't really posted in this forum at all  :D

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: Yes, mostly because of all the hype. But I hesitated due to the emphasis on PvP (not my thing).

Do you currently play this game?: No

If yes, please explain why:

If no, please explain why: I was on this site reading threads and watching videos, trying to decide whether to buy GW2 when I saw a blurb about The Secret World. I spontaneously decided to buy TSW instead since the emphasis was on PvE, story and secret societies - all things important to me.


What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: Currently playing LOTRO and TSW. I also am subbed to WoW, though I'm not playing. I have longterm investments in my WoW and LOTRO accounts and longterm relationships I value with other players in those games. I am playing TSW for the game itself, as I don't have any friends playing it.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? I posted here because the thread came up on Current Forum Activity.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? : no

Why not?: cause i didnt  play gw1 and i prefer to wait and see before makin my mind up

 

Do you currently play this game?:no

If no, please explain why: to old computer so i cant run it and cant afford a new for atleast another 19 months saving.

What MMOs are you currently playing :wow

why do you play these particular titles?: cause i feel kinda responsible for the guilds im in and cause i kinda like some aspects of it and also that it runs on my old pre pci -e computer

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?: not really sure but i think its to voice my opinion from time to time

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:  Yes, because Guild Wars 1 was the best game ever made.

Do you currently play this game?:  No.

If no, please explain why:  Because games are nearly always a mess at launch.  I figure the game will be properly ready for me to pick up around the end of the year.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:  Champions Online, for the quick combat and broad variety of character options.  Uncharted Waters Online, because its adventuring discovery system is interesting and really unique.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?  Because posting in the UWO forum exclusively would be talking to myself.  Actually, a large fraction of my posts are about hardware, and new game launches tend to get a lot of hardware questions.

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

Yes. Mostly because of ANet's manifesto.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes.

If yes, please explain why:

Even though I feel it's been overhyped and is not as innovative as billed, it's done the best job since WoW of creating a world that I actually want to live in.

If no, please explain why:

---

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

Glitch and GW2. Both for the reason stated above.

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

I'm considering trying to join the mmorpg.com guild.

Playing: FFXIV, EVE

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

Yes, when i looked at they manifesto video i was hooked right away. After watching more press event video i grew to like it even more.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes

If yes, please explain why:

Its a very solid game, story mode is a little weak compared to other titel but the complete package is great in gw2. I have been waiting for a game like this for a very long time now.

If no, please explain why:

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

Only gw2, playd Tsw for a month and liked it.

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

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

Yes. I've played GW1 since release, I've played trough Prophecies and Factions campaignes, I bought EotN, but only played it  for a week, just before the release of GW2. I also bought "Ghosts of Ascalon" novel shortly before release. Beside beeing interested in Guild Wars story, I was also looking forward to GW2, becouse, for me, there was no fun MMO to play since LotRO, and I always liked bothe single player RPGs and MMORPGs.

Do you currently play this game?:

Sure. I pre-ordered and began to play on August 27th

If yes, please explain why:

Becouse it's fun? So far , at least. The best parts for me are:

- graphics / art style and music / sounds (the best I've experienced in a MMORPG since LotRO, probably best ever)

- world size and details ( huge cities, a lot of diveristy between zones, NPCs that talk, walk and feel "real", a lot of humor, hidden places, jumping puzzles, et cetera)

- very nice environment for roleplaying (story, world, customization options). Sadly, there is no official [RP] server, but it's not  mandatory to be able to find other people who enjoy roleplaying and have fun.

- PvP; sPvP and WvW are very different, but they are both very fun (or at least they seem to be, so far)

If no, please explain why:


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

I'm still on a free month for TSW ( I bought it to play while waiting on GW2 :P)

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

There are no official GW2 forums and MMORPG.com is a nice site.

Yes, interested to get to know more about the game
 
Do you currently play this game?:
No
 
If yes, please explain why:
 --
 
If no, please explain why:
I'm waiting to see what the state of the game is around a month or so. This is because all reviews of SWTOR were great, but the game turned out to be quite bad once the leveling was done. Also I'm currently playing another MMO (WoW) and I'd like to finish my current character leveling/I'm far from being bored there.
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:
World of Warcraft - Been interested in WoW before, but decided to purchase SWTOR earlier. Now I'm done with that one, so moved on.
Star Wars: The Old Republic - Still subscribed due to 3-month plan. I hop in regularly to chat and hang out with guildies.

Actually I've never posted here, I'm just a forum lurker. Then I saw this post. If would post it'd be a question about said game.

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

No, not especially. I was never a fan of the first Guild Wars, so I expected this to be more of the same (it isn't).

Do you currently play this game?:

No.

If no, please explain why:

I tried one of the beta weekends, but wasn't impressed. It's a good, solid game...but it's not different enough for me to jump into.

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

Wakfu and Ryzom. They're both fun, well-made titles that are very unique compared to most other titles.

No, not especially. I was never a fan of the first Guild Wars, so I expected this to be more of the same (it isn't).

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes

If yes, please explain why:

I initially wasn't going to, but several friends have been begging me to play with them, so I caved in and bought the game.

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

Wakfu. It's a fun, well-made title that is very unique compared to most other titles. It also has more character than any online game I've played.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: Yes, I followed development for a few years (and have over 1000 posts on Guru to prove it), GW2 looked very interesting and seemed to have a novel approach to the tired old MMO formula. 
 
Do you currently play this game?: No.
 
If no, please explain why: I'm not happy with the payment model, as the cash shop was supposed to be purely cosmetic, but ended up being P2W. In addition, when I actually got to play the game during a beta event, I didn't find it all that revolutionary. I guess it just didn't grab me - the dynamic events are just the same old MMO quests in disguise, the story is sub-par and the combat feels very spammy.
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: I'm currently playing The Secret World, which I wasn't all that excited about originally, but it actually turned out to be everything that GW2 is not (this includes some things I don't like, but the good outweighs the bad). 
 
What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? I don't post here much, but I still like to keep an eye on the games I've followed for a while to see how they're doing.

The game has had a lot of hype going for it, let's face it, many mmorpgs due and most don't live up that hype.
Do you currently play this game?: NO

If yes, please explain why:
 
If no, please explain why: I'm taking a wait-and-see approach to the game. I think people get lured into buying stuff too often by basing their purchases on hype.  Even now I think people's opinions on the game are quite polarized as either loving it or hating it. I want to give the game and it's players some time before I put a lot of stock in player reviews and make a purchase decision.

Only GW2, I only play any game if it is fun

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

I'm interested in most new MMO's before release. I got burned with SWTOR though so I was cautious not to pre-purchase and didn't play any beta events. I played GW1 briefly but at that time I was hooked on SWG so never really got into it.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes, I bit the bullet and pre-purchased the evening before release.

If yes, please explain why:

I like the opportunity to be able to jump right into PvP or take my time to level up my character in PvE. The B2P model is good in that I don't feel I've wasted money if I'm unable to play for any length of time, although I'm not against the subscription model if the game is good enough to support it.

If no, please explain why:

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

I took a break from MMO's after SWTOR. I dabbled with the TERA and TSW betas and played a bit of DayZ. Although TERA and TSW were interesting, I think I'm just tired of the rush to level cap in order to PvP and the whole "quest hub" experience feels like a chore to me these days.

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

I haven't posted much in this forum, mainly because I lack knowledge of the game right now and have little to offer. I've had no bad experiences worth mentioning except that I really do need a new GPU for WvWvW.

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

 

No. I didn't like GW1 and I'm not too fond of their business model . Also I'm sick of playing themepark MMOs.

 

Do you currently play this game?:

No.

 

If yes, please explain why:

 

 

If no, please explain why:

I might try the game for the PvP if I get bored with my current games.

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

Planetside 2 beta. I'm not an FPS fan but this game delivers more open world PvP goodness than any other real MMORPG on the market imo.

 

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

I don't play the game so I hardly ever post here.

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

I was early on until I beta tested the game. I realised then it was basically another themepark game and nothing really stood out other than the WvWvW PVP

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes

If yes, please explain why:

I brought the game so I could join in the WvWvW PVP with my guild and for nothing else.

If no, please explain why:

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

I just stopped playing darkfall, I love the FFA PVP in a massive open sandbox world. I mainly enjoy PVP in MMORPGs.

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

No.  just another themepark with a few bits tidied up and marketed the hell out of in order to appear new and exciting.  The hype didn't work on me.

 

Do you currently play this game?:

No.

 

If yes, please explain why:

 

If no, please explain why:

See question and answer number one above.  I will also add that the problems A-net are having at the moment with security and the number of  game mechanics that are broken I'm very happy that I didn't buy it. 

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

Not playing any atm.  Waiting on planetside 2.

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

Not posted here apart from attempting to help someone out with a hardware problem.  I watch this forum because the fun factor is higher than playing most MMO's.  The fanboi Vs Hater fight is hilarious.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: Slightly Interested due to the hype and good things I'd heard about GW1, slightly put off by the amouint of hype though it has to be said

Do you currently play this game?: Not regularly, have played a bit on my friends game to test it out to see if I'll part with the cash

If yes, please explain why: N/A

If no, please explain why: I haven't bought yet because I don't think the game will offer much at end game for PvE players. I've always been a bit meh about PvP and this game seems totally designed for people who love PvP. 

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: Allods Online & Path of Exile. Allods because I think it has a great PvE system and I like the community on the EU server. Path of Exile because I like the feel of the game and wanted to support the devs.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? To see if my mind can be changed about PvE. I want to see how their CS is expanded in the coming 6-12 months as I feel they'll start adding more and more items that will be considered P2W. Coming from a game like Allods, where introducing such items almost ruined the game until the producer went back and fixed those issues, I'm interested to see what it will do here (mostly because of the hype and being a bit of an 'I Told You So' asshole)

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: I had a mild interest. I played Guild Wars 1 and was not really impressed.

Do you currently play this game? No

If yes, please explain why:

 

If no, please explain why: I am going to wait for the dust to settle and let them get  most of the bugs solved then I will decide if I wll play.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: None at the moment.  I got tired of all the immature crap on chat and general player behavior.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? I have not posted on this subforum for the same reason I am not playing any MMO's.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: No. I didn't like the first guild wars as it didnt feel like an mmorpg.

Do you currently play this game?Yes

 

If yes, please explain why: This game has taken everything i like about an mmorpg and made it better. Being an explorer in this game is great as the quests/events come to you depending on the area you are in.. no more gathering up quests. I like how each weapon you use gives you different spells too.
 
This game is great fun and doesn't cost a monthly subscription fee. Subscription fee games are dead imo.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: Just gw2 now duh! lol nah i was playing the secret world there for a minute and world of warcraft every once in awhile. Little bit of Aion since its free now.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? I mainly just check mmorpg.com for news and upcoming games. Rarely on the forums.
