Yeah, reading this thread made my night too!
Just reading the gobbledygook from these schmucks almost had me rolling on the floor with laughter. I'm not joking, I almost fell out of bed, scared my hubby and pup!
As posted by Captain Cucumber, one of their fanboys claimed there's nothing to GW2. To be frank, I doubt he's ever looked at a recent video of GW2 (this year even). Hell, I hated GW1 when it first came out, my brother got me to buy it, then stopped playing due to college, so I stopped playing and moved onto WoW with some friends. Now, 6-7 years down the line, and probably $3k+ out of mine and my hubby's pockets, we're VERY tired of WoW and it's absurdities. The Trinity, the classes, pigeonholing, etc and so on.
So, while surfing the General Forum on the main WoW site, I came across a Guild Wars 2 thread. And I remembered, "Oh yeah, I tried that out, I wonder what #2 looks like." And I was blown away! And even seeing the Engineer class recently reminded me of when I played Order on Warhammer Online. But Warhammer's was clunky and you only got a few skills/turrets. The same for "Saboteurs" in Rift (albeit they're not really engineers). So I'm really glad to see the great expanse they've made on one class alone!
I'm still laughing at the post "warriors can like equip a staff and like get spells'n'crap like a mage" and another guy posted the TotalBiscuit playing an Asura Guardian, and said, "yeah, even this guy says it's true!!!11one!". I literally facepalmed.
I'm still betting most of these people saw one video, or none at all, about a year or so ago when it was first announced or something. People don't like change either, and I mean good change. Like the "Trinity" being messed with. Most of them claim they can't even "Tank" or "Heal" in GW2. But I've seen Warriors with sword'n'board. And the Elementalist looks like the "most equipped" healer thus far (spell wise). So people CAN play what they want, but they seem to thrive on the "being different than others" mindset.
In all honesty, I've seen SWTOR, and I thought "WoW in space....", so I haven't bothered really looking into it. I even brought up a recent video tonight to take another gander at it, and it just reminded me of 6-7 years of WoW... Only with lightsabers and lazerguns. =/
But so far, I can say that ArenaNet hasn't disappointed me yet. Although I would love to see a new "demo" with the Mes- I mean, 8th profession in it!
Edit: I also recently re-tried Rift because of my boredom... If you think the dungeon wait for dps in WoW is bad, Rift is even worse. Five hours of waiting! I made lunch, plopped down for some leveling, questing, etc. Hours later, I look up and it's 5pm! No pop, no roll, nothin'. Even worse are the invasions. Most people actually avoid the "non-50" zones. Not to mention, even if I did pick "tank", "healer", or "support", no one shows up to help out, so you can't get anything done. So here's hoping that ArenaNet can help shatter the pigeonholing Trinity a bit in their game and events.
Also, about Star Wars, it reminded me of this hilarious clip I saw on Cartoon Network, enjoy! (The best part is at 2:14)
