The game’s been out for almost half a year now, you know which battle grounds WoW came prepackaged with ? None. How about the honor system? a year or two after release? Arena ? ha ha
5 maps which are well balanced and fun to play is pretty good for a start, PLUS zergvzergvzerg. Arena net is doing an awesome job in it’s pvp department and I’m sure they’l keep going.
wow had subscriptions to keep money flowing in so there was an incentive to keep players playing.
Anet has no money coming in except for new players so they will not improve PvP.
OP probs just some scrub thief crying about something he can’t kill in 2-3shots.
“Elementalists don’t require a shred of skill.”
And in another post OP comments
“Thief is the only class in this game that requires skill”
lmao he couldn’t kill someone in 3 seconds so he cries foul.
GW2 did not put much effort into PvP. They put more effort into jumping puzzles.
Go look at Chivalry medieval warfare – that is what PvP should be like…
So basically an open world pvp area – though less of a world more of a map.
Might work, perhaps hotjoin would prevent guilds joining and zerging solo players. You still need to address zergs – perhaps by giving a player immunity once attacked and only able to damage the attacking player for a small period of time (long enough to heal up).
Rewards are important to entice players. Certainly the need to track solo kills for bragging rights.
Awesome pvp. Just need more game “types” to show off more specs. Also, dueling for fun with a small achievement for the pvp daily. Chop chop.
I am reporting you for being positive in a negative forum.
Oh you were kidding, never mind.
Without subs there will be no money to pay for PvP to get to where it should be.
PvP in GW2 is inferior to Aion, Rift and even SWTOR.
You get what you pay for
There is no sub so you pay $60 whereas in the others after a year you have paid say $150.
I prefer Huttball
I love PvP but I got bored with GW2 PvP far more quickly than I thought I would.
gw2lfg.com will help you group for dungeons.
Something against online GF’s while married?
If they did that….
…. then gold would actually be useful, then I would play the TP….
as it is I have no interest in skins.
I bet she has awesome finger tip muscles
A MMORPG is a virtual world where people can interact as well as use and make items in said world
Can interact but do not due to not being necessary to complete anything.
A well designed MMORPG will provides advantages to those that interact because if we all join guilds and socially interact it enhances the game.
I have seen more interaction in FPS games.
If you are looking for a group to do dungeons etc
I’m trying hard not to roll my eyes whenever someone claims the zones are “empty”. Do we have the same definition of the word “empty”? Because I’m hitting zones of all levels, and when an event starts and a dozen players swarm the space around me in a matter of seconds, I have a hard time describing that as “empty”.
Do some people seriously want to hear the population described as “there are so many players around me at any given moment I can’t even score credit on a kill”, because that’s exactly the opposite of what I want.
There is a big disparity between servers having jumped around a bit.
One server may say Full but have a very large number of inactive players. Another server may say Full and have a healthy population.
…best way for group to do this is have one person kite around the mobs away from the npc, and take turns once that person is down.
I am not a big fan of where dying is expected – I like games where dying should not be the norm, where you are encouraged to keep your toon alive and it becomes a big deal if they die.
Here they like deaths because it is a money sink – which encourages RMT to trade gems for gold.
If you are “turned on” or “attracted to” a toon in a video game? You may need to get out more.
Some guys like to look at pretty things – doesn’t need to be in a sexual context.
Some guys prefer to roleplay an ugly barbarian – each to their own.
I knew many many girls In Aion that would grind and grind just for the hottest outfit of the month.
While I have a hot gf, I still like hot avatars.
I do laugh when people say GW2 is skill based. Sure positioning and the occasional dodge is important, but I would hardly say it was skill based. Perhaps if it was not tab targetting and more like a FPS you could say that.
I liked how SWTOR you could respec into different roles. and I agree with the OP that removing roles did not enhance the game as much as they hoped.
I agree you do not necessarily want the old tank + healer that do all the work but you could make having a tank change a hard dungeon to becoming easier. As long as most classes can fill the tank role.
Servers are full due to a large number of inactive accounts.
I’m going to farm for gold for a few hours.
AC is the first dungeon, shouldn’t be too hard.
Is this another mini-game you can do at level 80?
Glad yall have the time and energy.
is sent to chat as you die. Then you realize you accidentally started up chat instead of running away
I’ll just buy the training manual, I bet its not too much gold.
White Knights all up in this thread and every thread that tries to discuss any possible negative reactions to the game.
Maybe read the replies before you post…
my first computer game involved using an old tape recorder,
loading took up to half an hour for 48k worth of program,
I remember playing Elite on a commodore 64.
Loved that game and played for longer than I play the new MMORPGS of today.
minor things, mine are
1. WvW zerg wins and then you spent a long time getting back into battle.
2. PvP no incentive to actually win.
3. PvE feels like a solo game.
If it was twice as easy to make gold then everything you wanted to buy would be twice as expensive.
But I do agree making gold in different ways should net roughly the same gold per hour – so you are not penalized for time spent.
e.g. sPvP should net gold for winning. that would make pvp much more exciting.
The other thread was closed before I could ask – it was talking about kitten being a replacement for a swear word.
However I have seen it used in lots and lots of other contexts and so I am confused to the definition.
Maybe nobody knows – which would be typical of kids today i guess. Just one example in the context of talking about the guardian healer role someone said
“It so perfectly melds role of protector with a level in kitten”
Now come on that cant be a swear word I think.
Edit, another example talking about end game
“If I were you, I would continue to have kittenn and not worry about what level you are or how soon you will get there.”
Ok so he misspelled it but again either kids have the worse possible grammar or kitten is just thrown around without anyone knowing what it means.

I can’t remember the last time I bought a game in a box
I feel old – I am not even sure what the definition, only ever seen it recently in game context. Wasn’t sure if it was a reference to hello kitty online or something.
An extra quickbar slot every 80 levels and everyone would work towards that.
Yeah just pick a server, and have them transfer at off peak times. The population will eventually drop at some time of the day.

Its a silly request.
If you want more of a challenge go naked. I am sure the new players would appreciate it.
The game is great at the start then it comes boring quickly.
There are many reasons with the game design that creates the quickly dulling experience.
But glad you love it.
Account secure by logging me out every 4 hours? That shows how bad they do not understand the concepts of security.
at last a funny thread
There are many more reasons to quit than Ascended gear.
Really I am sick of this website constantly logging me out.
wtf is up with that?
what is it 24 hours then auto log out????
Server costs are tiny compared to labor costs.
Well a little exaggerated but some elements of truth.
It is not ascended that will kill the game. The game while it has many upgraded elements of design that made it interesting from 1-80, the reality is…
End game is boring and they can’t fix it now.
There is no subscription so they make no money from end game players.
I had the highest hopes for this MMORPG but it was not realized due to end game.
Oh well wait for the next one.
sPvP is designed for Competitiveness. You must be skilled and coordinate your strategies with your team to rank up and be the top with.
If I want to run a map or three over and over again I will go play Americas Army for free, much more interesting, much more skillful.
Instanced PvP is boring – there are many other games that do it much better.
Even SWTOR instanced PvP is better than GW2
