Hey all, finally after a few weeks of being away from mmosite.com blogging, I took the time to play GW2 final release. There are some things I wanted to talk about, some things I wanted to scream about, and some things that... well... Just irritate me.
I started out playing GW2 on the 3 day head start, and I absolutely could NOT wait to play this game. But after rushing to 80, my fears have come true. I remember when playing EQ2 it took me literally 4 years to finally get 2 of my characters to level cap (procrastinating, a lot of grinding, etc). But upon jumping in to GW2, I never thought in my wildest dreams I would hit max level (80) in less than a week. Now, for anyone who thinks that is AMAZING, then let me inform you: Do not rush this game. Take the time to do everything that you need to do in it to keep your character's progress top notch. I started out basically doing all the events and hearts (Public quests)...
Right out of the gate with my paycheck I had to make a decision... Wait for Guild Wars 2, or go ahead and spend 50$ on The Secret World.. I chose to go ahead and go spend the 50$. I had heard soo much about Secret World. Back when I was playing Age of Conan (not the Unchained/ F2P) I was in a guild called Envy. We all enjoyed our times of power leveling each other and getting one another up to a decent level enough to run with the guild.. Well, soon enough, the announcement for The Secret World started fireworks inside the brains of all my old guildees. Every one on Ventrilo was ecstatic and couldn't stop talking about the new, upcoming release from Funcom: The Secret World.
I took a gander and decided to have a look for myself. Come to find out, TSW is awesome! No levels, play your character how you want, and plenty of Polaris, Hells Rising, Inferno, and DW groups to join up in! I started out making a Templar, Arsuul, and immediately the g...
Hey all! LD50Lulz here, and I just wanted to type up a nice little GW2 blog. I have played all the betas and enjoyed every second I was in game. I think this game is amazing, and yes, I'm sure a lot of "trolls" and non-Guild Wars players are flaming this game, but let me give you some insight from a avid MMO player. I have been playing MMOs for since I was 12. I have played everything from WoW, EQ2, Warhammer, Vanguard, SWTOR, Rift, DC Universe, Champions Online, City of Heroes, and more. Now, EQ2 I have logged 4 years and I loved it. I have a 90 Berserker, 90 Templar, and a 90 Shadowknight. I love the classes in EQ2, I enjoyed every dungeon and raid I ever ran in that game. But repetitive grinding became an issue after completing the leveling of 3 characters. But, EQ2 offered some cool aspects, such as skill trees.
Now, for most gamers, skill trees are not really a unique aspect to any game, as they have been around for years. But, EQ2, Warhammer, WoW, and Rift off...
So, I have officially tried the C9 open beta... Loved the first 7 hours of game play, then it all went down hill. I was having so much fun running dungeons, getting gear, and loading up my Hunter with everything I could find, but then, the game went sour on me. The game went sour for me, but it might not for someone else, and if that is the case, I'm glad you found a game you enjoy.
The 5 reasons I have, I may get bashed for, but if you are an avid MMO player like I am, you'll know what I am talking about. I realize this is open beta, and I am just pointing out a few "flaws" that I think the game has, or rather I think is extremely ridiculous.
Economy is EVERYTHING I look for in a game, and when you have starter weapons level 10-15 that range from 7,000 - 21,000 gold (vendor trash weapons I might add) there is something not right there. Now, I have heard from higher level players (level cap is 50) 30-50, they all say that money is easier to get at higher levels.. Th...
