In Topic: Finding WvWvW utterly painful

18 October 2013 - 07:54 PM

OP my thoughts and experience. I am a 12 vet (on/off of DAOC).I bought GW2 to partake in WvW.I left the game last November because of the way WvW was designed.i won't go into a rant here,but just say it was  poorly done I wrote offf my $59.95 mistake and moved on.IMO the WvW is more like a pro basketball game with point scoring the most important thing.Hence speed to score more points than the other server.An overlay of war like activitys masks the objective of just outscoring the other server.

My suggestions...do defensive things like escorting yacks or keep defense if you want to keep trying to master WvW.Know that many who play against you are most likely much better equipped...and know the best ways to achieve their goals(far far better than you do).You must be willing to pay the price for your education.

You may want to look into Dark Ages of Camelot.A 12 year old 3 faction war game that is the best realm vs realm game ever made.It's a shadow of it's self, but still is unsurpassed.There is a 14 day free trial which gives you total access to every feature.

My last bit o advice(and I wish I would follow it more).....do what is fun. Don't do what stresses and frustrates.Know that if you wish to persue something that you lack the skill or knowlege.....be ready to pay the price in frustration and continually seeking education on how to do things better.

I bought GW2 for what I thought Elder Scrolls Online is shaping up to be. World class faction vs faction conflict(or in the case of GW2 server vs server conflict).I've stopped playing GW2.

Not playing GW2 anymore...Playing SKYRIM  to get into the Elder Scrolls world even if it's single player.

Because the amount of people that actually like PK are not enough to justify spending a AAA MMO budget on them. Right now it is barely enough to justify on making a NON PK AAA game. ( you could argue that a good MMO innovative MMO will bring numbers. I will argue that gamers love the familiar and are not going to adopted to new things unless they are forced to; which is why 99.99% of AAA new IP are created during the first few years of a console release.)

DAOC(the gold standard of realm vs realm warfare) has been running for 10 years despite the best efforts from its former producer  Mark Jacobs to kill it(with expansions like TRIALS OF ATLANTIS). Elder SCROLLS ONLINE has as a primary focus realm vs realm conflict.(Hundreds of millions in development costs and 5 years of development have already happened because some believe they know how to do realm vs realn right.

I bought GW2 because I expected world class server vs server conflict/warfare(keeps/towers/siege engines/rams etc etc).Instead I found that the Arenanet developers concept of warfare was a 2 week 24/7 mindessly repetative basketball game where the team that scores the most points wins !! Then you pretend it didn't happen and do it all over again for another two weeks .

So....I'm gone from mmog's. I have been playing Elder Scrolls SKYRIM. It's a poor substitute for what I thought GW2 was going to be ...a great game of faction(server) conflict. I'm looking forward to the possibilities of ELDER SCROLLS ONLINE.

In Topic: The REAL future of WvW...

I bought the game for one primary reason.My hope that a gaming company(other than DAOC) would understand what world class faction conflict was all about. Clearly Anet did not, and does not  understand .They continue to think WvW should be some kind of expanded pvp match.......or a two week basketball game to see who can score the most points.

I had hoped to see some glimmer of hope in the devs comments,hence my return to this forum today.I'm frankly disappointed but not surprised.

As for myself...I'm done with this game unless radical((for Anet) changes in gameply and content take place.I've left the mmog genre(playing Elder Scrolls.... Skyrim) and following Elder Scrolls Online.
