#1958273 why are there so few people around now?

1. Name your server so we can actually discuss that part of your question.
2. You're in a dead zone. A place the majority of players haven't yet reached. Or the majority of players have already moved on from.
3. You're in a crappy zone. A place where people have access to but don't because, well.. (I'm looking at you, Lornar's Pass)
4. You're playing outside of prime time.
5. The people in that zone simply don't want to do whatever you're doing. (I'm looking at you, Megalodon's)
6. Everyone is dead. You're the last person on Earth. This is an automated message.


#1958528 "There is no content"

In GW2, you don't have much interplay or support in defined roles. The norm is either not to group, or group in an anonymous uncommunicative way (i.e. DEs) with no roles and the concommitent interplay of strategy that brings to literally every fight. A team is merely the sum of its parts. Btw, Rift did a much smarter thing for roles and needing the "Holy Trinity": they let you vary your role to adapt and fit a need, not remove the need for roles. Because there are only shades of grey in the crayon box, the art of content is more limited to nice pencil sketches.
Two things:

First off, what makes you think there aren't plenty slap happy as heck to have destroyed the notion of necessary roles? Sure, there are obviously those who miss them, but I do not, at all, in any way. I hated it whenever any sort of conflict arose when playing with friends due to the unnecessary hard roles. You had to decide, do I tell my brother, no, you can't play your ranger in this mission because, really, you're a boat anchor, or even though you were happily playing your warrior, you needed to step down and come back with an elementalist because that's that the team needed for this mission. Yes, that style of gaming has a certain appeal to a certain audience, but if that's what you want, go play those games; there is no shortage of them on the market.

Second, guess what, when you are playing in a small group with voice chat, a great deal of these things you think are missing from the game somehow magically reappear. You ask who has a snare, who can daze, you swap weapons so that you reliably combo for extra damage with your friend. There are still plenty of roles, they're just softer around the edges, and that, for the right audience, is a good thing.

You've got to realize: for all the BS nostalgia for a game that only existed in the heads of those who played that way, GW1 was the largely the same. Most people tackled things solo or in small groups with H/H filling out the gaps. Only some people chose to approach the game as coordinated eight man teams with complimentary professions and builds. What ArenaNet did was they removed the artificial distraction to what was going on. In GW1, although you could play a carefully constructed and critical role in an eight man team, you were equally free to be just as "self sufficient" as in GW2. I was self sufficient because I used carefully built heroes to handle my healing and damage prevention when I was playing my warrior, or I used carefully built heroes to tank and protect me from direct assault when I was playing my elementalist. There wasn't any necessity to rely on another human for anything in most of the game, even in the imaginary golden age pre-Night Fall. GW2 merely strips away the pretense - instead of AI handling all the stuff your profession lacked, they just give it to you and it's up to you to come up with a combination of skills and traits and game play styles to make it work however you are choosing to approach the game.

Nothing much has changed, it's just that the solo/small group aspect is much more obvious in a open world and you can no longer hide behind the illusion of team dynamics when it was just you and 7 bots in reality.

TL,DR; What you call flaws were alive and well in GW1 from the beginning and only strengthened over time with improved mechanics to foster solo/small group play. It's in the DNA of GW2 and not going anywhere.

So there are people on this forum who say GW2 lacks content/is boring etc. Lets get the small one out of the way first. If you don't enjoy GW2, thats ok. If you are finding it boring, that's ok too. For all intensive discussion purposes, GW2 can be the worst game to ever exist, taking the crown from E.T.. That's ok.

But now, apparently, there is a lack of content. Remember, this is different to 'I don't find the content fun'. There is also the exclamations that there is no new content, when the game has neared the end of its first month.

So I ask you this first; what is your /age. How much did you pay for the game? I paid the full 60 USD. The last game I paid 60USD for which lasted me over 30 hours was Dark Souls. It took me 30 hours to complete the game for the first time, and considerably less on subsequent playthrus. I clocked about 90 hours total in the end.

At the time of writing this, I have spent 110 hours in GW2. None of which was in AFK. I considered all 110 hours of that time spent, fun. But fun, is beside the point in this topic, just to reiterate. What I find fun doesn't equate to what others find fun. But I'm completing content in the game, designed by the developers. My map completion is 31% and I've peppered some of that play time in with PvP and dungeon runs.

I paid 60USD for this. Not a cent more. Which other 60USD AAA game have you played recently that offered more than 30 hours of game time on your first play through. I say 30 because a skillful player, unaided by others, only doing PvE content, will probably have hit 80 and slayed the final boss. Why has it suddenly become expected of Arenanet to churn out new content like it is a subscription MMO?

Then there are those who say 'I'm going back to WoW' like it is a threat to Arenanet or the forum community. I don't care as much as the next guy. Why can't you play both games at once? Do you not have OTHER 60USD games installed on your computer? Does playing WoW delete those games from your hard drive?


TL;DR: This is a 60USD game, you can probably count with one hand how many other 60USD games that have constant content updates for free, with content that can last over 50hrs. Regardless of how fun you find this game or not, it is not lacking content.

I love you OP, and want to have your babies. Not literally of course. Ahem :P But I agree 100% with your post.

And for the people complaining about content updates... It's only been a month! One month! How often do you people expect new content? Shoudln't ArenaNet focus on fixing what needs to be fixed first - which is what they seem to be doing anyway? Content will come. Until then, be a bit patient and do other things. Good things come to those who wait.

Man I agree totally, as I said I still playing GW2 because I enjoying every day... But I was talking in general! For a lot of people, GW2 can't change nothing, and I'm sacared about his future.

1) You shouldn't be scared about GW2s future, just look at GW1 and you see it has amazing succes.
2) Every MMO first focussed on solving bugs and all that. I prefer them to focus on TP, WvW, class balance and dungeons first before they start adding new content. :)

Funny thing is, look at alot of subscription MMO's at the moment, do they provide new content weekly?
I find it very amusing people think they pay a subscription monthly so they would get new content weekly/monthly, but look at WoW, it's been months since a content patch. And it's not like your subscription fee from those months will pay the new expansion!
Oh no you still gotta pay for the expansion too.

That's the biggest rip-of from all time. :P

#1954066 Almost a month without new content?

Posted phani_kaushik on 21 September 2012 - 02:23 AM

Wow, just Wow! No not the WoW you're thinking about. 1 month is not the timeframe for new content, especially on B2P games. Anet never promised that. They're patching bugs & recently launched a Mac version. Many who tried GW2 on Mac using bootcamp were having issues, so this should help those who own Macs. There're a lot of players who are still at lower levels slowly leveling and enjoying the existing content. I want GW2 to be a wonderful stable game within the existing scope first, not an oversized monster with a crippled leg. Let's give them time to fix up things and release new content afterwards. Anet did promise to release free content, but I'm willing to give them time for that.

I really really really hate people that say "dont like it, don't play", "go back to WoW", or "you got your moneys worth out of it herp derp".

Completely retarded arguments. Almost everyone that has played has enjoyed the trip from 1-80. It's the destination that is troublesome. People have these complaints because they want to improve the game. The argument that you got your moneys worth out of it is the most retarded considering this is an MMORPG. Not a single player rpg. We buy mmos to keep playing them, keep progressing, and have fun. As it stands now, at level 80, everything is a grind.

The problem is the solution that some people offer are things that have been done in other games. Things that people that came to love this game escaped and would hate to see in this game. So the alternative is for us to tell them to go play that other game instead of trying to make this game more like that other game.

I keep hearing, get map completion. Get exotic dungeon gear. Get tier gear. Get all your crafting to 400. Etc etc.
Those are all massive grinds. Hearts are all the same shit, running a dungeon in explorable mode (which gets pretty old considering there are no new mechanics..all the same) over 60 times for tokens is a massive grind. Tier3 gear is super expensive. 100g? Most people are lucky if they have 10 gold. Get all your crafting disciplins to 80? Shittiest grind of all.

Lol and here I was thinking that a certain portion of the player base WANTED these large grinds. Seriously, all I've heard from the more 'Traditional' MMO base is that there needs to be grinds, things to work for...well there they are.

Quote

Oh wait, but what about pvp? I did WvW like twice and I hated all the running around maps. Also, everything is a zerg. Theres no awesome battles, it's one zerg after another. Spvp I can't comment, I haven't done any. Seems fun though, even though pvp isn't my thing.

Nah you've been in it twice, it is more than just zergs. If everyone zergs one spot on a server than that server is likely going to just hold that one spot :P

Quote

There needs to be more challenge when it comes to DEs as well, it's all zergs. Even the "difficult" ones. Orr is extremely annoying, risen sprint at you like 28 days later, and once you kill a group another instantly respawns. And of course, DEs are zergs there too. No challenge.

DE's can be improved. I think most people agree with this, that they just need to be harder.

Quote

My last complaint is the social aspect of the game. Because of the way the game is designed, you don't make friends. You're forced to group up with others, and do little communication other than mention where the DEs are going on. So the part of the game where you talk, have fun with people, group up with like 2-3 other players to do things, make FRIENDS.. is gone. It plays like a single player rpg. Not to compare WoW, but man you make so many friends there and have some memorable times with them with all the crap you did. I have 0 friends in this game. Guildies doesn't count since the game is new and there is no long term bond between guild mates other than those that switched games.

This is a personal thing though. The game isn't going to make friends for you.

Quote

WoW sucked big time when it first came out, it started getting good like around..patch 1.8. So I'm REALLY hoping Anet fixes and or addresses a lot of the complaints people are making to make this just a behemoth of a game. It has the potential to dominate the mmo market. It's fine and dandy that the minority of you guys love the game as is, and get pissy if people make very valid complaints, but if Anet wants to be taken seriously and wants to have put out the best mmo out there like they said...then they have to take a nice long, hard look at how things are currently. And I pray they do.

Again, when the complaints are... "I want vertical gear! I want to feel better in my gear!" then how else are we supposed to respond? When people say "I want the holy trinity back!" what are we to say?

Right now most of the complaints I hear are against the things that Anet are simply against. So to those people I am responding "You need to go play that other game. That game has ALL the things you are asking for." I have complaints on this game and has expressed them.

-DEs way too easy
-Some tuning for dungeons

Those are mainly my main things. But if you come here expecting the fundamental design of the game to change then you should just cut your losses now and go back to your favorite MMO.

so the player population is high, and the mob has no way of retaliating and we are never going to see what happens if no one help X NPC. that does not mean it don't affect the world, I was at a remote area where there are Hylek merchants, was relieve because i could "sell some junks", but before i can do that, the Kraits came and took them all away ....

Agreed - the big problem is that the event chains never seem to progress beyond the states around their end. I've never, for example, seen what happens with the Centaurs in Kessex if they manage to rebuild the bridge, because that DE has seemingly never failed. That, I think, is the real reason DEs seem like they have a smaller effect.

What would be an improvement is the more times a chain has been pushed back, the harder it becomes. Each time the centaurs fail to rebuild the bridge, they come back in more force. Failing an event is something that should be occurring far more than it is.
