    Too bad "NO" is ahead for GW2 huh. If over 50% of the players are not enjoying the end game, maybe Arenanet should make a few changes afterall.

    The biggest thing is just long-term goals. They don't need raids, but they do need something. There's a few things, but there's not a good reason. Grinding legendaries is fine and all, but what do you do with them if it's not to defeat an ultimate big bad? It would be neat to see them add something reminiscent of FFXI's missions. Basically a group storyline that is really effing hard. People need to gear for it, get good, be on their toes, use consumables etc to progress. This content is hard. And I don't mean a bit challenging, I mean EFFING HARD. -but it gives lots of other things in the game purpose.

    You cannot possibly use a forum poll on a wow fansite as any sort of evidence to suggest changes should be made though.

    Heh, it is true that people need more to do than just grind for cosmetic gear and legendaries. A guildmate of mine is pretty close to getting his legendary (he's stuck now due to bugged events that won't let him purchase necessary ingredients) but he has most of the steps done and has plenty of gold to get what he needs. I asked him what he was going to do once he had the legendary (He was going for the shortbow). He was at a loss. He said, "WvW I guess." but with a bit of trepidation. He knew that the legendary would simply get him killed. A unicorn shaped shortbow that spat out rainbows was basically going to have all his enemies running up that rainbow road right into his face. Doesn't really help him in PVE since he already grinded dungeons a lot to get tokens and he wasn't interested in dungeon gear anyway.

    Well I'd use all the other information on this subject except it doesn't exist.

    Possibly not. I admit to being a huge fan of this game, but the end game needs some work. I can't tell you how disappointed I was with both the size and layout of Cursed Shore. I thought the final area would be massive and full of interesting events. Its not.

    You are aware that most people that play GW2 don't even know about this website?

    The arrogance of WoW players cracks me up. They look at those overinflated numbers that Blizzard issues and think they are the only gamers on the planet, that their way of playing is the only way that's legit.

    I'm in a huge guild and it only has a sprinkling of people that have played WoW. WoW players aren't going to make or break this game - specifically WoW players that raid aren't going to make or break this game, get over yourselves lol.

    I hope you took notice that the person you're quoting didn't mention WoW even once. In this whole thread. I'm not even sure if s/he played it, ever.
    This whole "grarrr stupid WoW players" thing is getting more and more ludicrous...

    Don't matter, this is a WoW-centric web site. Majority of people on this web site are here because of WoW. Have you ever tried holding discussions in the LoL forums?

    Rarely happens, because anybody who wants to post about LoL, typically does so in the official forums. Same thing with GW2, except this community is actually alive (some of us only heard about GW2 at all because of this sub-forum).

    The only advantage to posting in MMOC over those official forums is that you don't need a game account and don't have to have your forum name associated with your game account. Guess what kind of crowd that attracts?
    I hope you haven't forgotten my role in this little story. I'm the leading man. You know what they say about the leading man? He never dies.

    If you give in to your impulses in this world, the price is that it changes your personality in the real world. The player and character are one and the same.

    Thing is, I'd welcome a few changes and I haven't played WoW since some time during 4.3 I came back for a month and almost immediately quit again because of the fact it was still as boring as I remembered. I will probably go back for a month or so in a little while to see if anything has changed (Not that it will have changed) and likely quit again.

    I like the multi-phase big fights. I like a big group of people fighting something really powerful but you're not slapping a dragon in the face, but instead doing something more sensible (Magmaw: Chaining him down, Rhyolith: Destroying his armour by making him walk into volcanic vents, etc. etc.) before striking. GW2 has shown this but I feel something is missing.

    I think it was actually bugged when I did it but Zhaitan story mode was so boring I felt like that epic build up through the story was for fuck all, since I started to feel like a bit of an asshole throwing fireworks at a helpless lizard humping a tower.

    Considering they've come out and said it's bugged...

    OT: I'm enjoying the game. It's a GW game, I knew when I bought it what it was going to be. Yes, some of the bugs are annoying, but, I deal with it.
    Of course, like everyone, I would love to see more content (because, of course, new content is always good), but I haven't even finished the current content (hell, it's only been a month...), and I'd rather bug fixes are higher priority (even if there are multiple teams, there's almost certainly overlap, since developers on the Live Team creating new content likely created [and are thus responsible for, for some magnitude] current content),

    I think you took your assumptions way too far. This game is way better than WoW. If anything I'm a FFXIV fanboi and well, that's some big hopes and dreams with not a lot of substance yet right there. Doesn't mean GW2 couldn't be better than it is, especially with end-game content. People can like things but still be critical of some aspect, you should try it some time.

    Sadly, this thread is what is keeping me from leaving wow and giving GW2 a try. I really wish there was a demo/trial so that I could try it out and not have to spend $60 to see if I'll like it or not.

    The game looks sharp though.

    You should look at what you like, tbh. This game is great for levelling, I had tonnes of fun and put in about 120 hours before I got bored at 80.

    If you want gear-progression endgame and trinity raids, then stick with WoW. This game doesn't have much in terms of endgame dungeons, even if there are more dungeons that are viable than WoW has, I just don't get the same feel from GW2 dungeons as I did with WoW. I liked roles and I feel a little empty in GW2 dungeons.

    Basically, if you like levelling and PvP: GW2.
    If you like gear progression and PvE roles: WoW.

    Idk, i kinda prefer the whole chaotic feel of dungeons, and thought the roles made it feel less fun... but to each his own!! The part i bolded is pretty much true though, except GW2 has plenty of PvE content, it's just chaotic (and in my opinion more fun) and turns most of those "Everything must go perfectly" players you encounter a lot in raids to be turned off... you know, those ones who tell you to wipe the boss whose at 5% health because a healer and a tank is dead...

    For me, those moments where half the raid is dead and the boss is on his last legs and might still day are the most exciting. That's when all the skilled players start pulling out all the stops and really shine.

    Yeah during that and the "true death" weeks me and my guild would do, where if you die you're done for the week and we pull someone else in xD those were brutal... Although with 200+ people it makes it really easy to replace someone lol!!

    Only keeping you on FL because you're a cutie pie. Also I find sarcasm oddly endearing.

    OT: I am still having some issues trying to get my friends in the same dungeon. We tried CMx and CoEx last night. 2 party members [me incld.] could not zone into CMx. CoEx, same thing.

    Ended up doing SE story for a guildie instead. I enjoyed it except Kudu... what in the hell.
