I've been playing CS GO for the past few days, and just about every server I go into, people are discussing GW2, or are referencing it in their usernames. I'm surprised by how far reaching the hype is. CS is the last game where I would expect to find people talking about an MMO. Anyone else noticing this in other games?
Everyone talking about GW2
I have no idea. My enthusiasm and exposure is limited to these subforums. But it's nice to heat that more people are thinking about it!
I imagine the better this game does early on will directly affect post-game support. But I suppose that's not really a revelation, haha.
I'm not sure what exactly it is, but my entire guild from WoW is reforming in GW2 after our last member quit playing over 2 years ago. We haven't been on any other MMO for more than a free trial / beta test, but GW2 has us super hyped, and we've tried the BWEs and stress tests and are still itching to go tonight
People have heard lots of positive things out of the BWEs. Beyond that, Guild Wars 2 is essentially taking the good parts of an MMO, changing the bad parts to be a engaging and active experience for the player, and then tearing down some of the standard conventions. Mix that in with a unique art style and a deep world and you get a lot of hype.
Even with that taken into consideration, though, I am also kind of shocked with how much hype there is.
I'm a bit surprised by all the hype too. I played some of the original Guild Wars, but never got too deep into it until the Nightfall. I liked the Dervish class a lot - I beat 2 games with the Dervish, and got about half-way through GWEN. I tried a trial of Factions during a Dragon Festival (a code came in one of the boxes), but never got around to buying it.
Not sure which class in Guild Wars 2 would be up my alley yet. Maybe the Guardian?
