Now now, this isn't a competition between GW2 and SWTOR...... it's a one sided slaughter.

You can't look at these numbers and really expect SWTOR has a snow-balls chance in hell of beating GW2 in the long run.
One is a clone, the other is not.

And Arenanet haven't even began to fight (ie market).

@Yoh Bioware will still have a very good chance against ArenaNet if they make SWOTR F2P or GW1 buy box model. I would definitely play it, but not something that I would invest my time in, something I learnt playing WoW years ago.

>.< Just release the game already so I can stop hearing about it's alledged awesomeness.

And yes, I will be buying the game. No it will not be at launch. And the only reason I will be purchasing the game is to support NCsoft.
Personally, I don't like the way they're setting up the quests but since it's buy to play, I don't have too much to lose.

@J45neoboy
That's fair enough, it may not be for everyone.
Let gameplay be the ultimate judge.

That picture looks so different to the images and videos they posted a year ago.

I't like they've turned down the gfx quite a bit.

@Pitt

It looks different than the press beta vids too (and they even had the high quality textures and stuff removed)

Although you might just be talking about how the sylvar had a total redesign around the middle of last year?

Massive zerg fest with much too much lightning balls and effects along with massive lag.

I was far from impressed these last few days....

If it were pay to play with a subscription I wouldn't even install the thing after viewing all the videos.

I get the impression GW2 will all be about fighting in zerging groups and massive uncontrolled smashing on so called world bosses and castle doors;

It could be epic for 3 weeks and then everyone will cry for some balanced challenging fights where PvP really matters for the individual.

You know what it reminded me of ? A cross between those silly Warhammer fights and Darkfall aka as Darkfail.

Really I am not much impressed after watching this game play.

It is like FPS meets GW1 with a big loading screen to play in the newest combat map.

It is free, but if it will be the new kind of MMO ? I think it lacks decent controlled end game bosses and balanced PvP settings.

It could shake up the subscription model though, but not because it is that good. But because it can be played like TF2 for 1 hour and then you log off because the only thing you'll do is smash things (players or npc's).

@(Unverified) If you played the beta, you must be part of the "press". Considering that, couldn't you have come up with a more clever word than "Darkfail"?

@(Unverified) What about the competitive PvP maps and dungeons doesn't satisfy "controlled end game bosses and balanced PvP settings"? Just what are you looking for?

In reference to WvW, it's no surprise for people in a new thing they don't really know about to travel in zerg packs. Think about the differences between 8 year olds playing soccer and people who actually understand and are good at the game.

Not being worth your time and money (given their asking price) is pretty damning.

And while in the short term SWTOR is going to do well, but since we are talking about MMO's here, long term is what really matters and that's where they are really screwed.
In terms of building community, I don't see WoW in space doing that all that well, esp not after people experience just how much a better social experience GW2 will be.

Gw2's community is going to be tight knit and bloody enormousness.
