Because a lot of people are complaining it's boring, at all levels, in all tiers and organisational (pug, guilds...).
Suffering from burnout and whatnot.

While that doesn't mean everybody thinks it's boring, a lot of people who are on the forums think it's so and are trying to get some changes.
It will probably be too little too late for a lot of people though.

Because forum population is always > in game population?!

It's actually a massive pain in the ass. I can't seem to get my beserker to land a cripple now either, it spawns then waits then does it's attack by which time the person you're attacking is already running or he's killed it.

The warlock is doing the same pause but at least is ranged.....ugh horrible hope they fix it quick.

[update] it does still apply the cripple but as I said it depends on the player standing perfectly still and in range by the time the iZerker realises it's alive!!

Unlike GW2 PR deceptions, Planetside 2 doesn't need to pull any cons to get a good review on my behalf. Quality game, enough depth in mechanics and addictive game-play won me over. That MMOFPS actually has MORE player customization and RPG elements than GW2. Ironic and sad at the same time.

So no, I don't get paid. The game is just good. Also, try Far Cry 3. Not an MMO and not an RPG, but has more character customization and progression than GW2, like, 5 times more. GW2 could learn a thing or two about QUALITY from those two.

I love the shadowstepping of players as the servers struggle to maintain any semblance of stability in PS2, as for addiction and more RPG elements....ok if you like. And good luck further down the line when Smedley starts hitting you with the 'SOE' way of doing things, I truly hope you're happy together :)

And FC3 is a great game but.....there are only really 3 or 4 elements to it, kill human quests, kill animal quests, take out people in stealthy ways and shoot people in the face. Whilst they wrap them up in different ways they're ultimately the same thing.

Anyway it's all opinion, isn't that a wonderful thing :)

This irritates me.

The server population doesn't mean how many people are online, it tells us how many player accounts are tied to that server. ArenaNet employees have told us this a number of times. The game could be as dead as WAR and the servers would still be medium/full. I'm sure that any site that tracks server statistics would tell a very different story.

All I hear lately is 'ghost town' this and 'ghost town' that in regards to servers.

Oh ok I'll clarify for you....

There are queues in all the WvWvW maps at primetime, there are continual groups running for dungeons and the like. It's actually one of those rare communities where alot of people know each other and the word PuG is almost a myth because you're just partying with people you know.... I know it's a difficult concept to get your head round.

So the word ghost town is not relevant to my experience with GW2

ive raided in WoW (had full item level 264 gear BEFORE the actual lich king wing in ICC was released)

and i completed all hardmode flashpoints as a MT and had full champion gear BEFORE 1.1 launched in SWTOR - yeah back when it was hard as hell because you could go through 25 champ bags without any gear.

so im a PVE AND PVP elite.  and this isnt even counting all the other mmos ive played.

but i aggressively defend GW2.

why?  because ive seen the extremes of both sides of the spectrum.  and i see that GW2 does what it does, the best. i dont think this game is perfect - hell ive crashed so many times its not really funny - hell, i got a 72 hour ban within 24 hours of buying the game two months after launch, over soemthing stupid.

but ive accepted this game for what it is.

and thats the main issue with folks like Duskwolf and threads like these.  you guys are so caught up with how this game is nothing like GW1, and how this is too much like WoW, and how this and that and the third, when all the information was there.  ANet made several official statements regarding what GW2 was going to be like and what to expect from this game.

this is an acceptance issue.  something that many of you cant seem to do.

i played BWE2 - hated GW2 because i thought i had it in my head what this game was SUPPOSED to be, i went to Gamestop and CANCELED my Collector's Edition pre order.  played the secret world and Rift.  decided, GW2 is what my wife and i needed with our work schedules and what we wanted out of content and community, so after ENORMOUS amounts of research and watching gameplay vids and reviews, i purchased the game a full 2 months after launch.

and i couldnt be more happy.  because i did my research, i knew what to expect and im not putting unrealistic expectations on this game or its developers.

Despite the use of 'elite' to describe yourself, I agree with the rest, bravo!

People are leaving because GW2 is failing by the day. So they are returning to WoW when they have no choice but to admit that it is far superior.

Seafarers rest is as full as it ever was....'medium' :)

Community is awesome best one in years of MMOing
