What's the point? No matter what feedback you give, there are always, always, always going to be the cheerleading squad who responds to that sort of feedback with namecalling, insults, and assurances that you're wrong and everything is fine. And looking at the official forums where such feedback would make sense, it's clear to see how the moderation staff lean. Feedback threads are merged, destroying any sense of context, and bans and suspensions are handed out a little too freely while criticism posts are deleted as "not contributing to threads" while supportive "me toos" are ignored.
Community interaction is one of the many places ANet is dropping the ball.

Spvp was really fun at the start, but same maps = same strategy and once a mesmer appears, you go hide, a guardian appear you ignore him, so on it goes. WvW was destroyed when they allowed people to move around servers freely, specially since almost everyone in there is a pve n00b looking for free exp and karma. These days I can go 9 v 1 and easily kill at least 7 of them, hell if there wasn't a down state I could take all of them out no problem, that's how bad the population playing it is.
Main problem lies within reaching 80, doing so is a joke, if you craft your own gear you be 80 in about 2 days max, unless you are super casual like some of my friends who reached 80 in about a week. Quest repeat themselves way too much, kill sons of svarmir, kill fire legion...events are always escort this person...protect them while they do X thing, yeah nothing fancy or interesting, in fact after leaving the starting areas you are better off ignoring the dynamic events.
Now you are 80...so what? If you have a crafting discipline in a day or 2 you can get fully geared, with new karma rewards from dailies, you can get a full set of temple gear no problem, just craft/buy yourself a weapon and you done, then what? Nothing, dungeons aren't challenging, in fact they feel more like a test of patience than a skill test, is like saying in other games you need to train yourself to do good and feel rewarded after, here you just stare at the game trying to not blink until the game forces you to, then they reward you with a few coins and that's it.
The game is build around skins, yet all the skins look horrible, I bought myself a citadel of flames axe, it looked like if a 5 years old kid painted some crayola lines in a paper gave it to his dad and make him so proud he turned it into a ingame skin. Crafted weapons...my god...give me my lvl 1 sword any day, cause those look even worse. Want a decent skin from karma recipe vendors or mystic forge...? Prepare to grind for days upon days upon days, this would mean longevity but nop they aren't worth it.
Cultural armor is another goal, bad stats, insane prices, don't even look all that good.
World bosses....? You can solo those, their AI is so simple you can stand there hitting them and kill em on your own, except the claw of Jormag, who is a test of patience...Rewards for killing them? Lol yeah sure.
This leads to the final solution, you get some magic find gear, go around killing crap in orr and try to gamble for a pre legendary...sounds like Diablo 3 to me....and god Diablo 3 was a huge failure.
The story...there seems to be no lore at all, well there is but is so simple and linear you really don't feel like part of it after you leave your starting zone.
Exploring the world? Finished in 2 days...got 2 gift of exploration which i destroyed since they only occupied my inventory space.
Everything needs money and everything is a money sink. Sounds like those old days where the king would squeeze every penny from the peasants in taxes...way points price makes you not even want to travel lol.
People might say you paid only 60 bucks for this you don't have the right to ask for more content cause you aren't paying a subscription. Well allow me to tell you, you are wrong. Many people paid tons in gems to get stuff they thought would help them in the future, many many games out there cost 60$ specially console ones, all of them gives hours upon hours of fun, FPS, Rock star games like GTA series. red dead redemption so on. People who paid these 60$ are your clients, if they aren't happy with your content they will leave, then when you release your expansions, they will not buy, you release your new town skins, nop not here, not gonna buy either.
With those 60 bucks, I could have bought the new rift expansion, or WoWs, or 4 months of a game subscription or many condoms or food, or many months of porn sites subscriptions. Is not the amount you paid for it, is the fact that you decided to invest into Arena Net's product, if they fail to deliver well, next time they come around with something way better, guess wut? We aren't buying.

This is a joke right? What serious PvPer advocates gearing for RNG over static gains? Furthermore, it's laughable that you would be so condescending in this thread considering your so-called esports team is probably seeking corporate sponsorship. Guess what, corporations don't fund teams that shit on the public they're trying to market to.
As one of the first people to ever introduce serious corporate cash into the world of professional video gaming, let me tell you, your attitude is a real disservice to the world of e-sports. Get off your high horse, amateur.

I'd just like to take a moment here to say something for the silent majority.
We love this game.
We're having lots of fun.
Yeah, there are some bugs that suck, but for the most part, it's a great way to spend a few hours.
Sorry if you thought we didn't like it, but we do. Sorry if you thought ANet is losing customers left and right, but they aren't. They have us. So whine. Complain and threaten and troll and do whatever you wish. Just know that you are a minority, a hedge case, and just because you don't love this game, doesn't mean we don't.
I'm not saying this game is perfect. I'm saying that I agree with the design decisions and the direction. If you don't, please play something else, because you're going to ruin it for us.
**edit for clarity**

All of these types of posts focus on "this game is awful, it needs changing, it's going to die in a fire" etc, but they never actually state what they want to see implemented.
If the whole game philosophy doesn't suit you, don't 1) buy it 2) complain about it 3) come to a fan forum to voice your inner attention seeking desires. Just go and play something else, no one's holding a gun to your head and forcing you to play Gw2.
If there are small design choices that irk you then specify in the suggestions forum about what you'd like to see changed, and maybe others will agree with you.
You, specifically, mention about about the cash shop, if you were aware that gw1 has thrived for 7 years or so with no subscription fee, and no cash shop for the most part, so the business model obviously works. Have you ever thought that they actually don't care about what the WoW fans think? There's a section of the MMO community who flit from game to game completing the content in a day and then moaning about it. They'll go onto the next game leaving the other (gw2 in this case) to thrive with the exact people they want to have in their community. And guess what, they've had all the money they ever wanted off all those people who just moaned about it afterwards. Which leaves them with more profit to develop content for the people that matter.
There are some minor issues with systems being bugged and stuff, and that'll be worked out, what's the rush. However most of the complaints here are either the same rubbish because people didn't bother to realise what type of game this was (like expecting a ferrari to have boot space then moaning they cant fit their 9 children and the dog in it) or it's just threads like this one, moaning about other people's complaints... making the forums appear to be a lot worse than what they are.

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.
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.
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
DE's can be improved. I think most people agree with this, that they just need to be harder.
This is a personal thing though. The game isn't going to make friends for you.
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.

No need to wait till lvl 80 before you can PvP and no gear threadmill.. what more could you possibly want?
Posted Latharn on 10 September 2012 - 07:37 PM
Then the name itself is misleading advertising.
Posted Teste on 07 September 2012 - 03:44 PM
They are a way to make people stay in a given place long enough for a Dynamic Event to appear, so players who don't understand what DEs are actually get to play in them. In this, they're basically a big "come here, there's a cool event nearby!" sign. Developers have said as much.
What amazes me is how people have not understood that, as such, the best way to fill a heart is by doing events in the area. Do you think the heart to feed cows and kill bandits and interact with plants is too much of a shore, since it fills so slowly? When the Dynamic Event in the area triggers and you have to defend the farm from bandits, doing it will fill the heart for you. The same applies to all other hearts I have seen so far - even if the minor shores of the heart are annoying, it doesn't really matter, since the Dynamic Event which will soon appear near the heart will make you fill it anyway.

People complain about nothing. And honestly, if this is the biggest complaint you have in your life, I'll trade lives with you right now. If your biggest complaint is "My fully functional game isn't what I thought it was", then please swap me.
