What do GW1 players think of GW2?

Funny how you see a lot of gw2 fans are "the older it gets, the better it will be" while on gw1 it was the contrary... clearly something went wrong

Prophecies engame was limited but it was interesting and challenging. Figuring out efficient ways to finish FOW/UW was great, it was never boring and mundane for me. To this day every once in a while I will run a full H/H team through FOW just for fun.

I feel very shallow walking around GW2 as there's a good 50% chance half the crap people are wearing was simply bought.
Where's the sense of accomplishment? Why even play?

Skill combinations and particularly Elites were a key element in making GW1 uniquely addictive. It was this wild x-factor that made it difficult for the mods to balance the game, especially when adding/changing a single skill meant an exponential number of new combos. But, although GW2 is easier to balance, it removed a huge amount of the fun involved. Everyone now is a cookie cutter build with barely any diversity. To be clear, in GW2 sure you can do different things, but the variety is limited (mostly conditions) and durations are extremely short.. like 'explode the world for 1 second', 'become invincible for .25 seconds' and people actually get excited about it, it's a lame joke. Not to mention, the armor and weapon designs in GW1 were better in almost every category to GW2 which is really strange if you think about it. What I wouldn't give for GW1 just to be updated with GW2's graphic engine and a few updates, but with the same story, classes and skills.

I only played thru the betas on gw2, and did not have any fun, it was all grind and grind and grind....
when I play a GAME its to have fun while I am playing, not when I get to some designated level or time, gw was fun right from the start (why some peeps never left pre-searing!), what I played in gw2 was more like work, and if I want work I can get another job!
from looking at what others have said and looking thru the wiki, I see that staying with gw was not a bad choice (and NOT buying gw2 was a good choice).
and oh yeah, I am STILL playing gw and having a blast!

I too have an attachment to the old GW, but contrary to you I do not like GW2, I tried and still it's disappointing to me.
I have several levels 80 characters but every times I log on I feel like logging off after 10 minutes.
ArenaNet should have called it "Utopia" as they did say, not GW2 which is a different game plus the RNG is not so nice!
They tricked me and I bought the collector edition, which I regretted since the first time I tried.
But there are other games so no worries!

systems that have been a requirement in MMOs since 2007 were just not present.
all of this simply reeks of a rushed release, after so many promises that it would release "when it's ready".
