At the moment you're just helping a bunch of refugees out by putting signs up, lighting fires yadda yadda.

We don't know what has caused the refugees to flee yet, because we haven't got to that part of the story yet.

Kinda like reading a book. You reveal stuff as you go along, and not all right at the beginning.

After all, we can't predict the future :)

Still, he's right. The achievement goes up to 75 and without any schedule of when the next parts are going to come it makes you want to finish it fast which becomes boring around 40 points.

In Topic: What do GW1 players think of GW2?

25 January 2013 - 12:41 AM

I was waiting for GW2 since the announcement of it being made (like any other GW fan, probably). I had to save some money to buy a new PC to run it and it took me some time, so I started playing GW2 just about 2 weeks ago.

I don't know why, maybe because the game was already 3 months old and my excitement disappeard somewhere, but when I created my first character I couldn't help but feel that the game was boring and I logged off after the Great Hunt and killing some minotaurs. I gave the game another try after about 2 days and I changed my mind a bit. I do think that the gameplay is quite fun (open world pve at least) but I do not get the same kind of excitement from GW2 as I did from GW1.

I also don't feel any sense of community. I have so fond memories of GW1 because I played through the whole Prophecies campaign with people (that was before heroes). There was no point using henchies, when you could find people for missions and questing from outpost to the next mission easily. In GW2 the only interaction with people that I have is doing group events (if there are other people around to do them) and sometimes reviving each other. Sometimes someone will say "thank you" for spending my time on reviving him or her, but in most cases people do not speak. In GW1 after playing through the campaign once I liked to sit in mission outposts and help people get through the game. I felt kind of like a mentor to the new players, explaing bonuses and some tactics (like running to the catapult in Fort Ranik to save time). Here I have a solo personal story that is in no way engaging (up to level 30 at least) and a silent world with people minding their own businesses.

Here is my next complaint - questing. Oh how I wish GW2 had traditional quests. Sure, hearts will grant you lots of exp but on the other hand it's just one activity in a small area. Sure, you have two or three objectives per heart, but what I do is I find which one is the least bothersome and in case of most of the hearts they bore me to death. And then there are dynamic events, which would be cool if there were more of them. That's also why I would prefer normal quests. You know where you are going and why are you going there for. You just get to a village or whatever, grab your tasks and your off. In GW2 I get to a heart, I do a heart and... in most cases there's nothing more to do. The DEs are so sparce and repetitive that I don't really like them that much.

As I stated previously, I do like the gameplay, but I do agree with people saying that GW1 was better in that regard. I was against weapon skills system from the first time I heard about it, but decided I won't complain about it much until I play the game. I have to say I still would prefer to be able to change weapon skills, even if the pool of skills to choose from would be limited and picked by ANet.

What I'm also fond of are jumping puzzles, though they do seem a bit easy in most cases as I did play a lot of kz_ maps for Counter-Strike.
