I didnt like guild wars 1 for some reasons and mostly cause of the click to move shit.We will see what guild wars 2 can bring.
GW2 will be no different, and if you want to see what the game can bring, then read the stickies here, on GW2G (guildwars2guru.com), read ANet blog posts, and look up youtube videos. There's a ton of knowledge out there.
OT: People have different ideals and views that's why! Seriously GW2 fanboys annoy me as much as WoW haters and really the amount of OMG GW2 WILL BE SO AWESOME ITS GOING TO BE THE BEST EVERRRRRR!! I'm looking forward to GW2 as much as the next person but seriously people don't count your chickens til they hatch and presume its going to be the game that kills WoW and revolutionize the MMORPG genre as we know it, might it? who knows if it does cool, if not oh well hopefully I'll still enjoy it.
This is because wow is the easiest , most forgiving mmo there is and you also get a lot of instant gratification. Some of my friends that did rift endgame content said the players from everquest were a lot more skilled then wow players in raids.
I suspect a long line of other MMOs that were greatly hyped and fell flat has given people a more tempered approach.
@Ghostcrawler:Some advice: [My pet issue] is why there were sub losses is one of the weaker arguments players use. Players don't have that data.
I think those who blindly ignore GW2 because they think it's like every other MMO or think it's just GW1 but prettier are extremely ignorant. GW2 isn't like every other MMO that's released in the past 7 years that merely has 1 new shiny feature and calls it a day. I could write an extensive essay on what the game is doing and ArenaNet as a company.

I don't understand how the heck this hype works. Rift and SW:TOR, games I would never have heard of if it wasn't for MMO-Champion, got a crazy amount of hype. Guild Wars 2, a game I knew from some friends, has almost no hype or followers (well, compared to the other "challengers").
Being critical is a burden which some people loves to bear.
I get WoW and LoL but... Diablo 2? Maybe he means action-y combat?
it has to do with LARGE amount of games that claim to be better then wow but then turned out not to be,id have to say before i actually studied gw2 i was skeptic anything could be better then wow also. wait for the game to come out and then all the awesome reviews will come out and your dumb friends should see the light
