World Of Warcraft or Guild Wars? - Page 3

post #21 of 58
I have both Guild war and WoW. IMO WoW is better by far, much more to do, more in depth with the items n such.

No, Guild Wars isnt an MMORPG... Ive been playing it since some of the first betas and even the devs classify it as a CORPG

Is Guild Wars an MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game)?
Guild Wars has some similarities to existing MMORPGs, but it also has some key differences. Like existing MMOs, Guild Wars is played entirely online in a secure hosted environment. Thousands of players inhabit the same virtual world. Players can meet new friends in gathering places like towns and outposts where they form parties and go questing with them. Unlike many MMOs, when players form a party and embark upon a quest in Guild Wars, they get their own private copy of the area where the quest takes place. This design eliminates some of the frustrating gameplay elements commonly associated with MMOs, such as spawn camping, loot stealing, and standing in a queue in order to complete a quest.

Guild Wars takes place in a large virtual world made up of many different zones, and players can walk from one end of the world to the other. In Guild Wars much of the tedium of traveling through the world has been eliminated. Players can instantly return to any safe area (town or outpost) that they have previously visited just by clicking on it in the world overview map.

Rather than labeling Guild Wars an MMORPG, we prefer to call it a CORPG (Competitive Online Role-Playing Game). Guild Wars was designed from the ground up to create the best possible competitive role-playing experience. Success in Guild Wars is always the result of player skill, not time spent playing or the size of one's guild. As characters progress, they acquire a diverse set of skills and items, enabling them to use new strategies in combat. Players can do battle in open arenas or compete in guild-vs-guild warfare or the international tournament. Engaging in combat is always the player's choice, however; there is no player-killing in cooperative areas of the world.

Players in Guild Wars can play with or against players from around the world in the global tournaments and arenas. And while players are initially placed in a region based on their selected language (so that there is a greater likelihood that others will be speaking their language) they can join up in the always-available International District to form parties and to play with anyone from anywhere in the world.
anyway, you cant accurately compare WoW and Guild Wars... they are meant to be vastly different games... so just try each and pick which one you prefer

I prefer Guild Wars

It will totally depend on what u want out of the experience. Want hardcore competitive pvp play with huge array of skills to choose from? Choose GW

Want an actual world to explore? Choose WoW. WoW appeals to me with the variety of stuff to do like forming raid parties to attack enemy towns/capitals, dungeon instances, tradeskills and the recent dragon killing quest expansion which I can't take part in yet.

Personally i think to play GW properly you have to take it quite seriously to get the most out of it which , no offense, I find a bit sad. On WoW I can just go on for a few hours mess around with friends, quest a bit and play a bit of pvp if I fancy it.

I hate the idea of paying to play a game that I own... I mean, I paid for it I should be able to play it.

I have both GW and WOW,played GW for 2 months and it was a waste of money i should have bought WOW earlier instead of GW. Played WoW for 7 months (6-8h a day) and had alot more stuff left to do,items to get etc. World of WOW is alot larger,some dungeons takes days to complete even with 40people but the reason i quit WOW was its addiction,you always want to get the best out of it and that takes quit some time and you end up being a zombie sitting infront of a pc,missing social activities etc,so be careful getting into MMORPG stuff.

Simply WOW because there is alot more to do in that blizz world and its monthly fee is not a big deal you wont buy any other games it keeps you busy all the time.

Just realized I didnt actually recommend a game

Like Ive said in countless GW vs WoW threads, you cant really compare these games to each other... Neither one is bad or crappy, it just depends on what you like

You just missed an open weekend to test GW and the upcoming expansion but you can download the 10 day trial for WoW from FilePlanet

Anyway, my recommendation stands with Guild Wars... its just the game I prefer

WoW is a joke of an MMO. Anarchy Online is way better of a game. WoW is way too easy and very boring IMO. AO is fast paced, there is basically no down time, and it actually provides challenging game play. There is a huge learning curve, but if you're even thinking of investing the time and money that a MMO (including WoW) takes, go for one that can hold your attention. A 10 year old could get to level 60 in WoW if he had enough time.

I have played AO for 1 year with both expansions but its graphics are way out of date (AO made in 2001 its a 5yo game),however i agree that its the most complicated and enjoyable to level mmo out there and has a great community mostly 20+yo ppl.

Levelling to 20 in GW took me 12 days but in wow it takes 2 months or more and level 60 is not an end in WOW,its just the begining for 10+ ppl dungeons, pvp battle grounds, city raids etc.
