Where did the social people go?

  • I talk all the time in chat. I love to share silly insights, answer questions, and step into others conversations--just because. When people talk back, it makes me happy, makes the world alive. I also think it balances some of the toxic spewing.

  • I see all sorts of chatting in the starter zones

    People play games on their phones now. Figure it out.

    I socialise a lot in game, and have had a great many conversations over the last couple of months. Haven't been on GW2 a lot this month because I've been playing Forza Horizon 4 though. =)

    You stand to benefit more from making friends than you do making enemies.

  • It's not just GW2, it's all other MMORPGs as well.

    Pretty much the way i am haha

  • You will get kicked off this game within a certain amount of time of inactivity. Chatting is considered inactivity unfortunately.
    Not saying people should not be sociable when they can, but like many others hard to type and play so that may be some of the reason. Hope you find a good balance in it

    Pretty much, yes. I have a full time job, am a parent, have a second job plus things that my kid needs shuttling back and forth. I have precious few hours in the week that I can "dedicate" to GW2, so when I am online, I play what I want with the build that I want. I know that I will never have the time to commit to "git gud" in competitive play, and honestly I don't really care for that arena. Likewise for raiding. I would probably find it boring to copy a meta build, learn a rotation and just do it. To me, there is no creativity there; it would feel more like yet another job to me.

    So, yeah, playing what I want in OWPvE and trying not to upset the more serious players (I main a ranger and am VERY well aware of how/when to use knockback).

    I am a very casual player.
    Very.
    Casual.
