    No, it's not needed. GW 2 should just continue with expansions and patches.

    i couldnt afford gw3 if they made it, i spent soo much in gw2 i wouldnt want to lose everything

  • Shirlias.8104Shirlias.8104 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I want gw3 as a post apocalyptic tyria scenario after the death of all dragons.
    Something like Hokuto No Ken, where instead of fighting for skins we are supposed to fight for food and clean water.

    Of course they could make a sequel with a new engine with all the bells and whistles but I believe it would be a bad idea. From my point of view the transition from GW1 to GW2 wasn't at all what I expected and believed it should have been made better. I don't want to see the same thing happen again. Now look at the image below. This was a montage done back in the time of GW1 which showed just how little of Tyria we had explored. In GW2 we've explored less since the bottom portion is Cantha. There's plenty of lands we haven't explored yet, lands we've never seen, even in GW1 so if anything, this is the direction GW2 should take; expand, explore, polish.

    wow, only that we have explored in GW1 and GW2? ... if they dry GW3 they should have enabled the whole world already ...

    Apart, I do not know, go back to explore what was already seen in gw1 but only more modern, it does not have much appeal ... I always said that they should have enabled everyone to explain ... or continents that were never seen in GW1 ... will we see more continents someday? New races, like elves, dwarves (not stone). people with cat ears, wolf, fox, rabbit, etc etc etc ...

    Eventually, the engine will become so outdated that they won't be able to do things they want to do with it without completely overhauling it, as new technologies emerge and games evolve. It probably won't happen for a long time, but it will happen.

    At that point, they should consider a GW3, because completely rebuilding the engine and then just applying it to GW2 probably wouldn't be cost-effective. They're going to need to recoup those significant costs associated with a complete rebuild by selling a new game with new systems in place and new gem store offerings.

    Until we reach that point, however, they should just keep supporting GW2. They shouldn't even be thinking about GW3 until GW2 just becomes so outdated that they can't sustain it the way they want to.

    Not as long as they keep current management and class balance politics. There are plenty of pay2win games out there (including gw2), no need for another one.

    GW is P2Win. We are always lied to.

    Just let this game continue for some more years then die. What do you expect to see some special in GW3? I can tell you already. Leveling, elitism, raid selling for 1.2k golds, skins for 2k gems. There should be an Anet 2 in my oppinion.

    I strongly believe that MMOS, especially those that become a money sink, should be treated as long term investments, and with respect to the players who have churned out wads of cash for cosmetics and items, should at least see the game live on for at least 10 years, this means constant support, patches, expansion packs... We're only two expansion packs into this game and you're asking if it's the right time for GW3? Never in the world, bad, bad, terrible idea, I would put that whole concept in a box and lock it in the basement for some 5 years, and then we can just start to consider if we open pandoras box...

    I also believe, our gold and gem expenditure, should somehow be transfered, not entirely, but lets say depending on how actively you spent you should at least be given a heads up in the next game and rewarded something... Something decent... This means not minis, finishers, titles... Something, starting from simply a voucher for a cosmetic if you didn't spend much, and working the reward track up for big spenders, more vouchers bundled with expansion slots, dye pack (Actually I'd like the current dye system to be removed entirely and be replaced by a wheel of colors and palettes, and have us buy slots for palettes that we can fill and name for convenience sake, rather than have us slave hours into this game for rare dyes costing up to 200 gold)

    They should just run the game on life support for 20+ years just because ppl put money in the game. Id much rather see them usimg that money on making a new better game.

    I'm somewhat despondent on the game at the moment and really only keep playing mostly out of habit. I'm not sure it really matters to me right now given ANet's recent missteps with the RNG mountskins and over priced mountskins then following it up with a message that basically equated to them saying "my bad" but not offering a fix. The whole thing is a slap to the face of players who pre-purchased PoF and/or bought the ultimate package.

    For myself there are other things that bug me about the game atm. Things like constant lagging/low frame rates, lack of gliding support with updrafts and ley-lines in PoF or not updating core Tyria, the griffon not being able to use updrafts or at least allowing players to dismount the griffon in flight to use updrafts, the invisible walls and death zones (be more creative please), adding volatile magic instead of just using unbound magic, etc. I would have been ok if they said that all players get unbound magic unlocked so they could use it all over Tyria. There are too many currencies in the game.

    Given how things stand at the moment I'm sure I won't purchase another GW2 expansion, at least without ANet fixing things before hand. I'm certainly not going for the gem purchasing with real money or maybe even not in game gold given that they haven't fixed the mount license thing yet by allowing players to purchase skins locked in the RNG they want at a reasonable price. If ANet wants my money they need to earn it by fixing things and making changes for the better.

    Yes, when the time is right.

    There are SO MANY basic issues with GW2 (From armor, weapons, dyes, backpacks and other cosmetics being so clumsily arranged and unmanageable, to megaserver, lgf, taxi-ing and multi-map technical and cultural problems, to the eternally elusive and impossible to fix meta/balance/e-sport dilemma, to the absolute lack of guild focused development in a game called "guild something", to the proper interaction between stats, to the handling of the npc AIs...) that creating a GW3 at some point is the only way I see for the game to actually evolve and mature.

    When, however, is another matter. IMO GW2 is a really good game right now, even with all the cited base problems. We have still a bunch of years before the unsolvable issues and the advances of the competence makes the situation unsustainable.

    No, it's not needed. GW 2 should just continue with expansions and patches.

    Just as side-note:
    The game does not need to be completely new in order to have an updated engine. A new or updated game engine could be made for the current game. But as the developers have said, it will require a big investment to do so and I doubt of the large, mostly casual player base is willing to pay this.
    And even when the game uses older DirectX 9 technology and not optimally uses multiple cores, I still think Guild Wars 2 looks absolutely amazing. This game is really a tribute to what amazing things are possible with Shader Model 3 and DirectX 9.0c.

    Sure, I would directly pay EUR 50 for an improved game engine with better multicore support and DirectX 11/Vulcan rendering, but again, that's just me and I'm not your typical GW2 player.

    I agree, it could benefit from an updated engine. The Unreal 4 engine would make GW2 visually awesome while being cross platform. At the same time they could incorporate GW1 into it also as time layered game play.

    Yes, when the time is right.

    Honestly I think they could do a GW3 hack and slash with 1-5 player teams, instanced based.

    Why make gw3? I think they can broaden their ip into other game formats. AND THEN go back and continue development on GW1 aswell.
    A mistake I believe they made was suddenly dropping gw1 development like gw2 made it obsolete. Gw2 didn't make gw1 obsolete, lack of development did.

    I think a GW3 (well, maybe not Guild Wars 3 so much as Guild Wars: X) would be fun if they somehow found the time to make a single-player game where you could play as a human and explore the human history from setting foot in Tyria and then expanding to every corner of the continent.

    Other than that I don't see much that GW2 couldn't offer aside from major visual overhauls.

    Obviously, i voted No

    To those who voted Yes, what memories will you bring with you to Gw3?

    Be honest

    LOL. I've been playing MMO's sine EQ day 1. Oh the Amazing Memories I could share with you from all the MMOs I have played, and I've moved around quite a bit.

    So unlike all the people voting NO, or what have you, I know that there will come a time when this game ends, I started playing it, knowing that was inevitable.

    The question now becomes, why didn't any of you?

    Did you really think this game would last forever? Did you really think this would be your last MMO? I mean, really, Do you even think you will be content in a few years to play a game with old dated graphics, as newer and better MMO's spring up all around you and the people you know in game move on to those games, leaving you alone here?

    A game is all about the people you meet, the laughs you have, the jokes you tell, and things you can look back upon in a few years, no matter the graphics, the loot.

    I know what memories I tried to invest in.. what did you invest in?

    Not now, maybe at least 5 years later. I want to see them implement huge engine-specific performance updates to current Gw2.
    Maybe adding Dx12 support, or utilizing GPU power better to have good FPS values. (instead of demanding CPU)
    Path of fire maps clearly look better and sharper than base tyrian maps, they have better textures and effects. So we know that Gw2 can be
    upgraded in itself graphics-wise. The only thing I really expect is Dx12 support and improved GPU performance. And ta-da you have Gw2.5.
    Gw2 can be modernized.
    Swapping to a new game would erase all that accumulated content over years and give you a vanilla game again. I'm happy with the development of Gw2,
    I just want new content, expansions and features in Gw2.

  • OriOri.8724OriOri.8724 Member ✭✭✭✭
    No, it's not needed. GW 2 should just continue with expansions and patches.

    WoW has been going strong for 13 years. GW2 is barely 5 years old. Its clear that a well run MMO can remain successful even after a very long time. I don't think there will ever be a huge need for GW3 outside of a massive engine overhaul, but depending on how late in the development of GW2 that is, it might make more sense to do it and revamp all of GW2 to fit the new engine than the have to start over from scratch.

    Eyyyy I unlocked signatures

  • Ardid.7203Ardid.7203 Member ✭✭✭✭
    Yes, when the time is right.

    People keep thinking a new game is about graphics. It can be a logic addition, true, but IMO, the basic planning, the innermost structure of the game, and all the development tools linked to that, are many , many times more important.
    Just 1 example: Dyeable weapons. They CAN'T make dyeable weapons for GW2. They will never can. GW3 HAS to have it.

    Masteries from the beggining.
    Elite Specs balanced from the start.
    Independent armor rigs for each race.
    Compatible armor pieces from the base.
    Dyeable backpacks and weapons.
    Etc...

    Yes, when the time is right.

    I'd like to see it, but frankly I can't imagine it happening anytime soon.

    Sure Gw2 left the options to continually expand, but we have to face facts here, the player base is declining as it does in every other game after a period of time. When I walked into the PoF maps not too long after they were released on days/nights when typically you'd expect it busier (the weekend), then find barely anyone on the map, and nothing in LfG, i'd say the game is on it's last legs. At best, it doesn't seem to be holding players attention for very long. If the game is bustling with players, where are they then? They weren't in the new maps, and they weren't in WvW, are they all in PvP or running raids? I just can imagine that happening.

    I think they should stop with the story, make Gw3 and have the story continue or migrate into the new world. I'd think they'd make considerable more money doing it this way, than continually producing content in Gw2.

    One thing they could do, and they don't need GW3 for that, would be to bring more mature content in term of stories. And by that I mean serious storytelling. They could also do away with the Super Mario/Mega Man gameplay mechanics which the game game hasn't evolved away from. Take a page from Mass Effect 2, the Witcher series or Baldur's Gate for examples.

    Honestly, if the game improves graphics, can maintain player base and pump expansions and content regularly, GW3 might not be needed for a long time. I feel right now graphics in GW2 is a bit behind the curve.

    To those who says they want a GW3 already...... just why? Why would you want another game? This game is only and already 5 years old and that's not old in the game ages.

    Better graphic some of you say... sure, they can upgrade it just like WoW did and they're still using their old Engine YET they're still launching expansion after expansion.
    I disagree saying we need a graphic upgrade, this game still looks so good and beautiful.

    But we haven't even explored so many places yet, so much to see, new enemies and allies, new places, and you still want another game?! :angry:

    I would buy a GW3 that:

    Utilized the excellent PvE combat mechanics of GW2, in terms of mobility, and the excellect PvE mechanics in GW1 in terms of focus on resource management, interrupts, and team based skill synergies.

    Returned the series to a lobby-based cooperative RPG built around challenging instanced content and away from a timer-based MMO primarily built on shallow open world content.

    Returned to a primarily buy to play model in stead of a primarily microtransaction model.

    Made assembling builds and acquiring new build enablers (be the GW1 style skill captures and buys, gear, whatever) part of the gameplay reward loop.

    Did away with the notion of NPC companions.

    Recognized groups of players in its narrative in stead of pretending there's only one player character.

    Yeah. Sadly raids are the only place left in the game where the world actually recognizes that you're not the only important character. The player-to-player voice interactions there are pretty sweet. I'd like to see agame that went back to GW1 style 'assemble a team build' gameplay, but without the "you can totally replace a party with NPCs" problem they introduced when they came up with the hero system.

    Like, I really liked henchmen. they were good to fill a few spots, but not so good that getting another player wasn't always the clearly better option.

    On one hand I'd love GW3. On another... I just started enjoying GW2.
    For me the game on release was boring and I had nothing to do. My favourite class (mesmer) without elite specialization felt lacking. I left the game and came back between HOT/POF to give the game another chance.
    And right now I am not bored at all. I have so many things to do I can't get enough time for all of that!
    I enjoy raids, fractals, bounties, casino-blitz, Auric, Tangled Depth's and Istan meta's. Story started getting interesting!
    I just miss Festival of Four Winds form old GW2.

    The only thing I feel like is bad for me are jumping puzzles. Normally I would love them and I really want to love them. The thing is... I don't have a problem with how to jump , I have problem where am I supposed to go in most jumping puzzles. And watching video to check the way takes away all the fun.

    If they ever make GW3 I hope they'll correct the engine and performance and give us some "end game" like raids/fractals with launch, not X years later.

    Agree. Engine change is irrelevant, at least for as long as it does what the dev team wants it to do. Back in the days of GW the team started on another expansion called Utopia but realized the engine could not do what the team had in mind so they scraped it for GW2. Perhaps one day they'll reach that point but I think we're far from that. The current engine seems very stable and could certainly be updated.

    it was hard enough for me to start with guildwars 2. i played wow and had reached so much. but i wanted guildwars 2 instead of wow. but i quit at lvl 80 few months after its release. it takes ages to build some account value. geared chars. shared bags. bank tabs. if all payed with gold. i don’t want to imagine to do this all over again in gw3. i would quit the game. now i finally have some nice geared chars in guildwars 2 and i don’t want it ended. finally finished nevermore i wanted when i saw it first but took ages to have the gold for it.

    about graphics. guildwars 2 graphics are fine. if all maxed or high. i am a gamer who wants best possible graphics but i don’t need better graphics then guildwars 2 now has.

    Only if certain things are in GW 3 (such as particular professions, races, content, game modes, ect.)

    Quite honestly, I wish GW2 was never a thing. I consider it a failure and back step from Guild wars and I know i'm not the only one. Anet tried to strike lightning in a bottle twice and while it convinced some critics at launch that don't play for very long, it completely dropped the ball and isn't the popular success the original was.

    Knowing anet, they would try to strike lightning again instead of learning what worked and improving on it.

    GW2 is worth it for the maps. That is pretty much it. They also made a lot of good ones in GW1, but these are a lot better in terms of exploration and dynamic events/metas

    Now, if a GW3 were to be GW1 combat system as a basis and gameplay systems with GW2 maps (AKA what many of us dreamed it would be), sure, I'd be up for it.

    But Anet won't do that. Though even from a story POV we could benefit from a format where the story is more serious again.

  • No, it's not needed. GW 2 should just continue with expansions and patches.

    Don't really see it as needed or financially even viable.. Basically if there was it would be a cycle of love hate anyway just like GW2.. Would be great if they could actually improve this engine a little (though I dont really have an issue with the gfx look) but this is arenanet - I wouldnt hold my breath for anything

  • Yes, when the time is right.

    Would love it.
    Like Destiny did with Destiny 2.

    make a revamp and fix all things that are broken.

  • Only if certain things are in GW 3 (such as particular professions, races, content, game modes, ect.)

    Sure, why not. I'd prefer a GW3 set in an alternate universe where the asura were all killed by the destroyers before they ever set foot on the surface, Eir never had kids and the "By Ogden's Hammer, what savings!" guy has his own teleshopping TV show.

    The poll is a no brainer. At some point, there will have to be a gw3 or something like it to modernize the game enough to keep up with times. When it comes to how I perceive GW2 longevity, I don't think it's appropriate to move on after one more expansion. The game's too good to focus all energy on something else after only 2 more years. I think 5 years or over before launching another mmo seems more appropriate. But then again, WOW's been out for 14 years, and people like it specifically because it has many things to it for having been out so long. If we got this amount of content in 5 years, theoretically, in the time to start the foundation of another game, this game's content would increase by a similar amount.

    Other (I might explain my preference in the comments)

    You should only make a new version of a game if your going to significantly changes game play or how it looks. Out side of that your just trying to sell more games to ppl when they could of just been an expansion. See CoD or one of the countless new version of games with the same name and effectively same game play.

    So if GW3 was say a "card base combat" (that seems to be the in thing atm) and had more of a cartoon look or more real life then now that takes a much stronger pc then yes it should be a new game. If its just more races more classes more story etc.. even a full reset of the story then no an expansion will be more then enofe.

    See ELE forms and you will get my views.

    Yes, when the time is right.

    GW2 is fine for now, they should just continue as they do now.
    However, i would love (eventually) a GW3, but this time they should make a clean new engine.
    Not spaghetticode on the old one. I feel the engine is one if the biggest thorns in th3 way of GW2 becoming great.

    To defeat the dragons, see the good in them.
    Zhaitan reunites lost ones, primordus creates fertile land, mordremoth spreads the green, and jormag..
    ..jormag? Who's that?
