Gw 2 will be a bad game period. succesful ? perhaps, but only because you don't have to pay monthly fee, if you had too then the game would die as fast as rift aion and all those. I don't know why people hype it so much it will have the same design failures that had been around since forever. What bothers me the most ,is that the same people who complain that RPGs are dieing , that everything is turning into simplified dumbed down action rpg /action adventure, are the same that claim that the game will be the best mmo ever. I just don't get it, in fact their ultimate excuse is that the game will be PvP oriented, really? so the game is going to be an action adventure shooter like thing and they don't have a problem with it.
No RPG elements
Enemies will scale with your level, for no real reason braking any immersion
Gear swapping, for no real reason other than to use macros
Zones will be phased
The one with the best build and connection wins every time
There are no roles, just attack move attack move
Homogenization, everyone knows that 1 to 3 builds will be the best and will be the most used
Random events that will be fun for 1 month and then become a pain in the *** as they are pointless, just an addon, nothing long term
The same grind that every mmo has
The same endgame every mmo has
Ugly models, asian like artstyle *it's impossible to determine what the hell most of the monsters are*
Same problems every other mmo has, massive amounts of mobs doing nothing just walking waiting to be killed, they don't use more than 1 skill spam 1234 etc.
My expectations for tor are pretty low, but claiming GW2 and others mmos will be good games is ridiculous
