^^^^^^
This.
The game is so dead that now everyone (even my grandma) is able to achieve a silver trim lol. PvP started dying at 2008, when ANet stopped any expansion to focus in GW2 development. Plus, they stopped making money tournaments and their skill balancing was so poor (thanks to Izzy, we all hate you smile.gif ) they just screwed up the game. It can be said they intentionally killed the game.

That's because Guild Wars PvP players are used to a more hardcore and really competitive gameplay. Typical MMO PvP player just wants to see high numbers, good visuals and have fun an hour a day. Their brains would have exploded if they had played GvGs, lol. We wanna have fun and compete, that's the main difference.

Of all things, my one big gripe is that I hate all the hairstyles on humans. They all look like 21st century teenagers lol. Same with the faces. Considering my warrior in GW1 looks like an older, seasoned soldier, I am kinda disappointed and was expecting a lot more variety.

Weird thing to gripe I guess, but there it is nonetheless.

That... is brilliant. That completely pulls this all together.

I finally realize what people mean when they say that GW2 is designed to appeal to the masses. The masses of prepubescents admiring the lifestyle of their older high-school classmates!

Beta is over and it was mainly pre-purchases in the beta.

Same, though my group which was farely large, didn't see the bunny. Still just Moa's running around when we all got kicked off.

Murlocke why is going to gamestop and putting money down considered exploiting the system? I would think they're well aware of it and just aren't advertising that its possible since they prefer everyone buying it in full.

Anyway thought the game was pretty fun. Was it the 2nd coming of MMO's though, no. I do feel after reading comments that perhaps I wasn't doing something right in combat. As an elementist almost never saw a combo unless I used a utility spell with 1 skillslot, and couldn't even do that consistently. Certain skill 1 slots seemed to multiplel hits that seemed to ramp up while others were just single casts so maybe that only applies to certain skill 1's?

Ok I didn't get into the beta, but I watched a lot of people streaming. I saw mixed reviews about thePVP and was just looking for some opinions.

Mash to win:
I saw some people mashing, but others using combos. I was just curious about if there is an actual difference between smashing and combos? I know theoretically combos are the way to go, but is it implemented correctly is my question.

skill cap:
did you guys notice a high skill cap or is it just ez-mode?

is conquest enough?


I didn't get to see much WvWvW is it just a huge zerg? or does strategy win out over zergs?

Thanks.

Welp, I put my fair share of time into GW1 and I think GW1 pvp and GVG are the most successfully balanced competitive pvp gameplay to day (before they made some of the changes a while back) and I was really hoping that aspect would at least carry over, but it seems like they are approaching PVP as a joke. I understand that we only got to see a small glimpse of the final PVP offerings of the game, but so far the combat in pvp seems like it plays a little like team fortress 2 or something, idk. VERY disappointing with PVP.

The PvE seems pretty cool, but I'm worried about the long term of it. What can they really implement into the game to give it that lasting power? As it stands right now I'll probably thoroughly enjoy leveling a toon or two to 80, but then what? Do I start grinding for awesome armor skins that I can't even show off in competitive GvG? Do I start killing the same boss every week for gear so my 1 does 17 more damage like WoW? I don't see what will keep players coming back at this point, but maybe I'm blind.

I do think the combat system is pretty refreshing, but it's not nearly refined enough in my opinion. It just feels off. (DONT WORRY MURLOCKE I FOUND THE FLOW IM NOT SLOPPY)

Also, there were some very annoying things about the beta that I think were just very disheartening. I understand it's a beta, but somethings just seem so simple, why even have to fuss with it-

1. lack of group support - COULD NOT PLAY WITH MY FRIENDS AT ALL. One of us would make it to normal map, next was in overflow, blah blah blah. Lame.

2. lack of group pvp support- From what I could find and google, there was no option to join a game with a friend to where you would both be on the same team every match. This killed most of the fun for the beta for me

3. Can't change most keybinds. like modifiers. They have all these skills assigned to horrible keys. I mean, if I was a yeti, I could maybe reach the 6-0 key comfortably, but I'm not. I would have love to been able to use a shift or alt modifier for my keybinds, but it wasn't supported. This was an absolute game breaker for me and probably most of the reason the combat felt off. IF this isn't in the final game, I.....nvm I'm not gonna think like that. also, f1-f4? Are. You. Serious.

Gonna stop here

Really enjoyed playing. I've always been a supporter so playing as a Necro and focusing on debuffing enemies and providing a little healing to allies was awesome! As some people here have mentioned, I'd like to see some more customization on the weapons. I'm fine with being stuck to 5 generic skills on the staff, but it would be cool if there were a couple more I could choose from.
