Anyone else already getting burned out on GW2? Got level 80, all items exotic and upgraded, killed a few thousand people in WvW. Game just doesn't have any long term appeal for me like MMORPG's of the past. I can already see my amount of guild members logging in dropping pretty fast. IMO GW2 won't have more than 300k active players by Christmas.

Well that's what happens when people rush to the cap lol. It seems to be happening in nearly every MMO that's launched within the past 5 years. If people would slow down and enjoy the leveling(like in days past) then there would less burning out!

But its far too early for the doomsaying don't ya think? thumb.gif

I doubt that. I'm at level 56 currently and know that I'm missing tons still and will be at 80. Raiding doesn't have to be endgame.

Leveling and killing NPC's for me isn't enjoyment. More of a means to an end. I only play MMORPG's for PvP and GW2 seems to be a bit lackluster in that department.

You have to take a lot of consideration. Xfire stats is only base on Xfire users. 300k is too small to be realistic, look at The Secret World end up 500k sub but dropping due the game isn't great as it seem to be. GW2 now has 2 Mil sub. There were 400k active players online at the same time on headstart and not even counting the official one. Let's not forget, they had to shut off the sales for a few days and there were in heavy demands.

 

Also it's September, fall is coming. You do know what time it is. Vacation is over, schools started and people are getting busy for Christmas products in businesses. Even myself, back in University; I cannot play GW2 as like the first few week, max now it's probably 3-4 hours playtime per day and there are 2 days I won't be even able to get on due to night courses. 

 

Speaking of GW2 levels, I'm already working on my second char to lvl 80 (lvl32 atm). Will have 2 lvl80 by next month even I play a bit per day, I'm pretty efficient at leveling. I don't know how some of you get stucked, I get like 3-4 levels under 4 hours.

Same here.

My issue with GW2 vs more traditional mmo's is the fact that in GW2 it feels like after you hit 80 you can VERY easily have the top notch gear accessible to you. For instance exotic crafted gear and a mystic forge weapon. The armor doesn't look cool but in general you can get the same stat combinations (and amount of each stat) from crafted gear as dungeon gear. The mystic weapons have a different skin though and look BA. The fact that you don't need to grind for gear upgrades is a good thing and a bad thing, the bad thing is I am a player who when I enjoy a MMO I will mindlessly play for a small marginal upgrade, because I want my character to be better at doing hard meaningful content.

The hard content in this game are a few dungeon bosses like the last one in Arah, (which I have killed 5+ times or the last guy in CoE right now). I'm already able to kill the hardest content in game, what more is there to motivate me?

If you enjoy WvWvW thats great, but in reality the only time gear plays a huge role is 1v1. But rarely do I see just a single person in WvWvW.. its just not smart to roam around solo.

In a traditional mmo if you aren't riding the cotails of a guild already clearing hard content or a expansion is new typically you will need many upgrades of the same slot until you reach the best in slot gear. In EQ2 the best gear was always the raid set gear and you pretty much needed to complete every large 24 man raid to gain access to a mob that dropped each piece. I used to have crazy motivation to log on and run some stupid dungeon/instance I've done 100 times just because I could have a chance at getting a piece of loot I wanted. In Gw2 the only reason I run dungeons is because I want more gear with a cooler appearance. Which then I go craft in lions arch with... you can't use that sick gear to do anything other then stuff you aren't doing!!!


I truly truly enjoyed the game leveling up but now that I'm 80 I'm left wondering if I should of gone slower.. In most mmo's launches like rift for instance I played for a good 5 months after launch and had great fun doing the tier 1 instances, progressing to tier 2 and doing a few raids. It feels nice having you're character progress overtime. In GW2 its kinda like, you reached 80 you have access to the best gear by running a dungeon 44 times, or gathering the rares to craft (each don't take more than a week). From there you can go get the legendary weapon which is pretty much just a new skin... and then go to wvwvw. 100% map completion sounds like some achievement in skyrim, not a mmo where a staple of its gameplay is starting out weak and slowly becoming a strong character. This game just gives it to you and once you have that power you can only use it for a few things.


I hope I had made sense.. I have trouble trying to describe what I don't like but I really just don't like the fact that now that my gear is all exotic (including jewelery I crafted) I have nothing left to strive for. In WvWvW one player makes no difference unless I'm fighting people alone which never happens. I didn't need a full set of exotic armor to kill the last bosses in what I consider the hardest two zones (arah and CoE). So what is next?

spvp is just a dumb attempt to make pvp into some kind of e sport, expect each map has a stupid gimmick that doesn't really seem that fun in the 5v5 based tourny mode. (I am rank 15 sPVP which isn't very high but I don't think majority is that high either. and thats only two characters one being 80)

I'm actually ok getting 80 and just doing PVP. Did that in DAOC for 8 years. Did that in WAR. Plus, I can always roll another class.
