GW2 was in top 5 but not anymore, that's what I said from start biggrin.gif, I never said that Gw2 is bad I don't understand why it dropped, in a successful MMO is crucial to have many players, that's the whole point. It's very accurate to trust streams because people watch what they like to see, so you can make an idea of what the majority of people are playing.

i quoted what you said, and never implied you called it bad. you said it disappeared from top payed games lists. it didn't. and it's still #1 through 5 on many listings. it's only out of the top 5 streams(idk if it was even in this for more than two days given how there's many games out there established as far as streaming and esport goes).


the assertion of popularity based on streams is pretty absurd. BL2 will still be played, but it will drop out of streams rapidly over the next 3 weeks. same fot TL2. there's games up there with lower player count than GW2 has right now and probably always will, but the streaming and esport scene is their thing thus on streams it will remain popular.


CoD will blow all those games away in sales and player count in about three hours flat on release(not exaggerating), yet it will never pass up LoL, WoW or SC in streaming.


and seeing as how your argument has changed, well there's nothing more to say.

Agreed, would consider that one of the least accurate indications, many streamers stream new releases because of free trials to do so. New games will get more viewers since people are deciding to play it or not.

You seem to be on the fence about purchasing this game and have asked for opinions so what I have to say is: Don't be, buy the game you won't regret it.

I've gone around telling everyone I know how much I love the game and have even convinced a few people to purchase it myself. Now this may make me seem like a fanboy (and I am) but isn't that just the point? You want to hear from those that have fallen in love with the game and the world ANet has created and those that hate the game down tot he very core. While I haven't found anyone that outright hates the game, I do know a person that loves the game. Perhaps a bit too much.

Of course I'm talking about myself here but I think the game is well deserving of it and I do a lot with the hopes that everyone discovers the same as I do. I even started a guild if nothing out of the sheer hope that it would make for a fantastic playing experience for those involved and I speak only for myself when I say this; but it truly has helped the experience along quite well. That being said, the game still is fun when you play alone. I've sat up when there is not a single soul in sight in some areas but all the same I've enjoyed every moment of going through it.

I'm not entirely sure why there is so much talk about the popularity of the game though, sure it is an MMO but I hardly find the popularity of it relevant other than trying to be hipster and playing a low key mmo that only 2 other have heard about. If a game is fun, there's very little impact the popularity should impact it if you ask me. But you didn't so I'll shut up about that now.

The point of all this is, is to hopefully convey some sort of...passion I woudl call it that I've grown for the game and hopefully if you pick it up (There's no monthly FEE!! and it seems to be on sale for 48$ http://www.overclock.net/t/1308675/gamefly-guild-wars-2-48/0_100 biggrin.gif ) you'll find the same love I have for the game and if not then to each their own. Although, I don't think you have much to lose if you don't end up liking the game for very long.

I already hit 80 since last week and now I feel like the game's getting boring for me :/

Currently, all I'm doing is completing world exploration and (slowly) gather materials to craft Twilight. Dungeons were fun, but now they are more like grindfests for equipment. If only we could get more epic fights like that claw of jormag event, it'd be nice. I haven't join WvW much lately (most guildies are busy at the moment), but from the last time I've played it is the same "my zerg ball is larger than yours" game, and servers with more oceania/asian players always take over everything when most US players are sleeping.

I'm not trying to downplay the game. lol I even bought the CE myself. It's been great for a while, but now it becomes quite apparent that there's a huge lack of endgame contents. Also, why are all dungeons restricted to five players party only? Can't we have more 20+ or ~50 players events like claw of jormag or, better yet, dungeons?

So true.

The biggest thing I hate is that there is absolutely no reason to get anything higher than basic orange or yellow gear other than looks. Everything in the game is easily killable.

Looks do worth something lol. See LoL for example: people buy skins for their champions all the time.

Maybe I should have leveling at a really slow pace, which I think I already did. Finished exploring about 60-70% of all the world maps excluding dungeons/wvw, although I did played about 6-8 hours per day since the headstart up until I hit 80 with my guardian lol.
