In Topic: Time spent in various different games

13 December 2014 - 02:37 PM

Just going to post my xfire profil here (gaming records since 2005): http://de.xfire.com/...ketheotherside/

Missing 400-500 hours in GW and a few hundred hours in CS 1.6 as well as some newer games like LoG2 because xfire doesn't update anymore. : /

I guess the LS is not pulling in the amount of people they would like to see, so they need to resort to things like rewards for simply logging in?

Probably they either don't like the spike on tuesday/wednesday every two weeks or player numbers have been crumbling over the last few month. It's a simple method of bringing people to log in because hey, why not klick for something free. But a part of those players is then likely to continue something in the game because hey, now it's started. Those players are more likely to see the shop and buy something then those that never log in. Also: constant traffic is a nice sellling sign in business.

I just don't understand the excitement of what amounts to chores in a game. Games are supposed to be fun. Chores... aren't... fun...

You don't get it. Do you think cows give milk to us because they like it? No. They give it to us because they are drilled and abused. Same thing here. Only that people are a little bit more intelligent than cows (not by much though, so it seems) so they also have to create the illusion of achievements. Because that's fun. Give the cows some tasty gras and they give you milk.

5on5 the first year, ffa last year.

It was ffa last year? o.O One more reason to stay away from it... But thanks for clarification.

To everyone their own. For me, jumping puzzles are among the most fun things to do in gw2. I leave it at that.

You [i]must[/i] be talking about DvG in GW.  Mayhem in GW2 is shit.

Of course I do. Mayhem in GW2 isn't 4on4 right?
