    Gw2 is best mmo in world. If its boring for you then go play fortnite

    If you told Fortnite players to go play Guild Wars 2, they wouldn’t know what you’re talking about. Therein lies the problem.

    Fortnite players do not play MMO's, and they're mostly a bunch of preteens anyways, why would you want them in this game?

    Yes...no...maybe...what do you want, can't you see I'm busy saving the world...AGAIN!

    ANet would gladly take more players, if they knew how.

    They'll have to wait a few years to even attempt to recruit all the Fortnight players I've ever met, since they're not legally allowed to purchase GW2 yet. (And at least 2 of them have parents who are strict enough to worry about a 12+ rating.)

    Maybe they're the exception and there are older players too. Admittedly I don't currently work with older teens so I don't get to hear what they're into as much but my impression has always been that it's a kids game.

    Most of the younger adults i work with(18-20) stopped playing it pretty quickly after the massive hype for it died off, obviously a small sample size, but still.

    Umm, updates happen all the time. What exactly are you hoping for? Or did you mean to say, Expansion?

    A third person shooter with fast gameplay compared to.. a game that can be played at a glacier's pace. MMOs aren't popular because they lack the instant gratification of a satisfying PvP kill. The only feeling of euphoria might come from beating extremely hard content right as it's new, or dropping an extremely rare item. Both situations that are temporary and don't tend to repeat themselves often if at all. WoW has a ton of rare items ingame at least, things like new mount skins and all, that fall under that. GW really only has infusions or some other rare skins that might drop from specific enemies. Drop rates so low you wouldn't really try to go for any of it. That's kind of disappointing, because it doesn't leave a nice feeling when you just never get anything special.

    Even 3000+ hours in there's tons of content I haven't done.
    But yeah, YMMV.

  • Dami.5046Dami.5046 Member ✭✭✭✭

    I just think this game needs something to make it exciting, but people are happy for it to stay as it is on one foot but demand 'more content' on the other.

    Yes, they would, but they'd prefer players that actually where interested in the game, and not in being rude or crude(as a lot of pre-teens are, since this game is rated "T" for 13 an up).

    Hmm if only MMOs tended to have a certain type of game mode. The kind that would let players vs players. Nah I dont think ive ever seen an mmo with such wizardry.

    Casual players.

    The bottomline here is that the idea that Fortnite players come over here would be 'good' for GW2 shows a lack of understanding to the kind of game GW2 and Fortnite is. I don't even understand how someone even equates the two and thinks the player OR the style of gaming are compatible. GW2 is successful because it attracted players that DON'T want to play WoW and it's clones, not because it gathers players from other games that people like to play. Do people really think players in Fortnite are GW2 material? I don't.

    Yeah, but we just got an awesome 2v2 custom arena map nobody will see. And we're about to get a champion rush event so we can get some more rng boxes that will contain nothing but junk.

    So exciting.

    Whatever happened to the updates we used to get where they would revamp world bosses and revamp fractals?

    I guess now we're just leaving all of the events the same and enticing people to do them over and over again for 0.0000005% chance at infusions? Or donate a ton of mats for some recipe unlocks in the mystic forge?

    I don't know. I hope they have something big in the works to announce on the 30th, because it feels like every decision lately is just how to keep the game on auto-pilot.

    It's especially odd that the Festival wasn't updated given what happened with Aurene, and there haven't been any current events to even elude to what's coming next season.

    Well, apparently some dialogue eluding to Jormag was added. So, not really a current event, but I guess it settles it that Jormag is going to take focus. And presumably Primordus given the red and blue logo.

    I'm not big on getting a ton of snowy zones, but perhaps we can get some more lore on Jotun and some of the more ancient races that don't have a whole lot of stuff fleshed out, like presumably the Hall of Monuments that I believe was built by the Seers?

    I guess a Charr/Norn focused season with flame legion and such.

    Not hard to imagine ... we had (or still have) a whole bunch of people from games like WoW, etc ... that want to force their ideas about how others should play based on the baggage they carry from those other games ... there isn't any positive impact on GW2 there.

    See, this is what people don't understand ... people don't (or shouldn't) stick with any game if that game doesn't suit them. That's not because the game is wrong. It's because they don't fit the profile for who the game was designed for. The biggest issue was that for a long time, all the games were the same, so now everyone expects all the games to follow suit. The reason GW2 is successful is because it DOESN'T follow suit.

    Like the dude that incessantly complains that WvW isn't done right ... it's baggage from other games where he's formed his perception. It's irrelevant. As so would too the opinions of people coming from other games claiming GW2 is 'wrong' in how it does it's thing.

    And it achieves nothing, they can boast about what they want "because it's like that in other game/s" and nothing happens. There's no impact and there won't be. So yeah, still pretty hard to imagine.

    That has nothing to do with what I wrote or what I was answering to. Flow of players from other games, be it WoW, Fortnite or whatever else would change pretty much nothing. Complaining on the forum doesn't really impact the game and majority of players if any at all.

    I wasn't talking about things changing in the game because of ill-fitting players ... I simply don't want to hear a horde of them crying about how the game isn't balanced or not 'hard' enough for them. That kind of thing doesn't have a positive impact on the game, EVEN if it doesn't lead to Anet changing the game.

    Well, again, you said:

    The bottomline here is that the idea that Fortnite players come over here would be 'good' for GW2 shows a lack of understanding to the kind of game GW2 and Fortnite is.

    Where in fact it would easly be 'better' than 'worse' for the game seeing as they'd have no real negative impact on the game (saying that you "don't want to hear crying" is not an argument, forum is already mostly full of complaints and it means/would mean nothing for the state of the game), while they could support the game by bringing money seeing how they're familiar with buying cosmetics in other game/s. Hence what I said:

    Imagine thinking that people comming from a different game -in this case Fortnite- would have any measurable negative impact on the state of the game like gw2... :D

    Because it wouldn't, so there's no reason to claim that "you wouldn't want them here!". Yes, you would want them here, because gw2 is a product that needs to make money. If you care about the game, you want more people playing it and spending money on it.

    Didn't play bunker trash, brother.

    Scrapper lost overall DPS from the patch which was already low, lost 300 vitality (lol), lost F5 toolbelts and now has a completely worthless function gyro. That's even more mindless than the chrono changes.

    But don't worry - I'm not playing it, or anything else.
