7 posts in this topic

I was watching Joe's old reviews then i saw Guild Wars 2 review i watched it i really liked the game but when i read the user reviews i saw soo many people saying the game is s**t after the relesase and everybody posting at AUG 28 says good things and aug 28 is the release date but people posting on november says bad things like its not good anymore and more im really confused and i dont want to give 50 dollars if its a bad game at the moment .

What do you think guys?

guild wars 2 went f2p so there's no harm in trying the game out. It's actually a pretty fun game. I bought it before it went f2p and I loved it.

I think it's quite the opposite. The game lacked lots of end game and many other things at start and then later only it got better. However I haven't played after the release of the expansion pack so I can't comment, but otherwise before that it was a really good game, constantly updated and constantly new things coming in.

 

As AngryAlex said, it's F2P now so you can test it. There is lots of limitations to it, since they still want you to buy it but it's good enough to test it out.

i really should not put a game i put SOO much time into down.

 

but ud have a better time in many of the other MMOs out there not to say GW2 is bad just do your research about it and decide if its something that will be fun for you.

I have the game since before launch and I still enjoy it. It's a very social MMO, so playing with friends or a guild makes the experience much more pleasant.  ^_^

 

Like it was said, the core game is now Free to Play, but ArenaNet had to create barriers in order to avoid bots and gold sellers. You can check the list of restrictions here:

As has been mentioned, it's free, so you have nothing to lose except your time.  The F2P restrictions are about on par with SWTOR, FWIW, though messaging is less-restricted, at least with your friends, and I don't think they penalize free accounts on XP the way other games, (SWTOR, Wildstar, Blade & Soul,) do.  Another unique thing about GW2, at least at its original release in 2012, 2013, whenever, was that they had a way to buy gold, licitly, in-game, and other MMOs weren't doing that at the time.

 

Warning, though, if you do buy it: Heart of Thorns started a REALLY hardcore elitist faction within the game that I really didn't feel existed prior.  Avoid those guys at all costs.  Life's too short for gear checks.

 

GW2 has 2 modes of PvP, small teams like SWTOR or Blade & Soul, and huge server-vs-server battles, more like ESO.  If you're interested in the latter and want to run with the Angry Army and you're willing to play on a North American server, we're on Northern Shiverpeaks.  I don't remember what server the EU guild is on; you'd have to check their subforum.
