A valid concern... however, I think you mean GW2 forums.  GW2's in-game community is bar-none the most polite and awesome community I've ever been a part of.

You are right sorry about that.  I am seeing it already with a few post and is never good for the community regardless of what others say.

 Sigh yeah it's the people who are anticipating this game that have lost their ability to reason, this thread sure does prove that.... facepalm.

This thread was not trying to prove anything. It was asking a question.

Getting hyped for CU is the equivalent of getting hyped for a Quentin Tarantino movie.

How many people get hyped for a movie before it has even started production? Unless it is a huge IP that doesnt happen. When it does happen the end results are usually the same. Disappointment. SW Episode 1 is a perfect example.

It's not fanatical devotion, it's an informed, well grounded in reality opinion based on announcements made re the new project and experiences had in past projects.

How well grounded and informed can your opinions be at this point of development? All this game is right now is a bunch of ideas. Good or bad you are still years away from anything solid being released.

Just because you don't have the same opinion or haven't had the same experiences though just go ahead and asssume those differing from you are fanatical.... such a great way to create a healthy discussion board.

I was actually just commenting on the GW2 hype that happened here. If you don't think comparing a video game to the second coming of Christ is a tad bit fanatical (and Im not even religous) then I dont know what to tell you.

Most hype on this site could most definitly be called fanatical. Look at the definition of fanatical..: marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion

How many times have we all seen this behavior on these forums? How many games? I don't have to assume anything.

Next time you go and make ridiculous statements based on nothing but a differing opinion take a long hard look in the mirror and make sure the stupidity you're spewing isn't self loathing redirected.


You are way to defensive. That leads me to believe that maybe you have reached that point where your ability to reason and actually have a discussion is questionable. You read my post and took it personally. Did I say anything in that post about CU? Have I ever posted anything about CU other than I would not pay 5k for my own isalnd? No.

You assume that I am not interested in CU or that I am a "hater". You are wrong. I am just cautiously optomistic. I watch the progression of the game, I read the interviews and I take all of the steps that any person who wanted to make an informed opinion about a game would. Right now there is not enough information to make any sort of opinion. Just a bunch of promises and ideas. That is hardly worth getting excited about.

 

 You didn't address any of the points I made which displayed quite clearly how your statements were false. My point still stands.

There you go I addressed every point you made. I answered every sentence you wrote. Lets recap your points though so you can see I understand them.

You believe that getting hyped for a game is the same as getting hyped for a movie. I answered that.

You believe that you are making an informed well grounded opinion. Check, answered that one too.

You believe that since I do not have the same opinions or experiences as you that I have deemed you all fanatical. Answered that. By the way that was a total assumption on your part but whatever.

You believe that I made a statement oh sorry a "ridiculous statement"  based on nothing but a differing opinion. Another assumption but ok. I answered that one too.

As you can see I answered most of your points the first time around but this time it is color coded for ease of reading :) See I even put a smiley in there so you can't get upset or take this personally.

You know what? Mark Jacobs is at least TRYING, he's at least trying to take a firm stance on RvR, uncompromising, no bs, old-school RvR, in a no hand-holding, no carebear system, that rewards PvP, and promotes faction pride, as well as sandboxey elements... IMO, we should all give the game a 10/10, JUST to show our support for that, and for that type of game, if NOTHING else... Especially after ESO has been buckling at the knees to it's PvE crowd more and more lately, and turning its back on it's RvR/PvP fanbase.

You sure did, didn't make any sense and most of what you said is either false or opinion. I think you missed the point of why I said you didn't address the fact that I previously showed how what you said was untrue.

 

This thread has made one thing very clear. If someone like yourself has a narrative they want they will warp, dodge, assume and plain make things up to fit it.

Trust me that interest me as well but from a realistic standpoint until I see the gameplay I can't give it a score.  I would love for this game to be the new "Darkage of Camelot"  and really hope it does but I have my small worries and concern about the PVE that will be in this game cause you will need some no matter what imo.

I would love to know what was false about my post. Some was opinion. An opinion based on what history has shown me to be true time and time again.

I think you missed the point of why I said you didn't address the fact that I previously showed how what you said was untrue.

Please then enlighten me. I answered all of your points very clearly.

 This thread has made one thing very clear. If someone like yourself has a narrative they want they will warp, dodge, assume and plain make things up to fit it.

I have done none of those things. Yes some was opinion. I did not warp, dodge or assume anything you said. Well other than you may have crossed that line where you can longer reason or discuss this subject in an objective way. That was an assumption. An assumption that you are proving to be correct with every post you make. :) look another smiley!

Honestly it seems to me like you are the one with the narrative (hype sucks, you guys are sheep)and is blind to what is actually being said in this thread. People have answered the OP X times as to why the game is the hype for them; they like what MJ is proposing and there are several UPs for this game that excite them, and they have been listed.

You keep repeating the same sing-song. How about responding and reacting, rather then sticking to your guns come what may. Tbvh, for now you just seem like a sophisticated troll to me. The OPs question has been answered but you keep on just repeating yourself .

Correct, and MJ will not budge from that position from what I can see. If he does, I think he might get alotta hate mail :)

What on Earth are you talking about? I think you quoted the wrong person, I suggest re-reading thread.

 

Can't keep this discussion up much longer, making me dumber just listening to some of you :) < Smile face.

Oh, I did say something similar to that in another thread, so I thought you searched through my posts and found an actual quote to discredit me somehow, lol. :-)

Don't get me wrong, I may have said some out-of-line things about MJ regarding the $5000 island thingie, but believe me when I say I will be happy as a clam if hardcore PvP'ers finally have a game to call home.  I mean that, I know it's one of the hardest bunch of people to please and if he manages, I wish you all the best.  I'm just not that into PvP myself.  You're right, he is trying for a type of game that some people will enjoy and I think that's rad.

No offense, but if you're not that interested in PvP, why are you on a forum for a game that's completely dedicated to PvP? Do you actually plan on playing CU?

One thing your missing is we (those of use who are about to spend our hard earned cash on CU via kickstarter) are having an impact on the game design.  This is very unusual for a MMO to say the least.  This isn't purely about current and former DAoCers looking for something new but fimiliar, this about a possible new future for MMOs by empowering the little people vs top down management that we get from EA and other game publishers.   Yes, CU might suck at the end of the road, but damn it, it's *our* project that we backed and had input on.  That's something that is missing from your typical McD's MMO of the month that is slapped on your plate.

If your still not getting it, play WoW in peace.

There's a reason why "hype" is only one letter different to "hope".

People loved DAOC and hope that they will love Camelot Unchained equally. Many of those people were disappointed by WAR and hope that Camelot Unchained will not disappoint them similarly.

I don't think there's much point reading too much into hype percentages.

No.  I usually find these threads on the home page under "Recent Forum Activity", and frankly, the OP's question still makes sense to me.
