like this... i hate the fact on WoW it's noob-style gameplay, just bash numbers on your keyboard and do stupid hits... no real skill-chaining, no real thought in what your doing, in GW u get 8 skill slots to fill, u have to think about what skills u take... so GW is for non-noob gamers

GW ftw!

well saying that, i used to play woW... years ago, then i found GW and decided it was a hell of alot more realistic, and alot more social, all players on WoW are anti-noob (they are sooo cocky and take the piss if you don't know every little detail about a certain things)... bunch of geeks...

Back when warcraft first came out it was a hit because it was one of the first real-time strategy games that had decent graphics and control engine.

WoW is basically the same game.

It's like they took a 1977 Ford Pinto, raised the back end, put on mag wheels, and super- charged the 4 cylinder engine Razz

I say GW, of course. Reasons (comparing)

1. Graphics - World of Warcraft have got the graphics from Warcraft II, cartoon-ish - Guild Wars have mor real-life-ish graphics.
2. Gameplay - Movements - Guild Wars got pretty cool character movements. WoW got strange movements. The characters is in the air for a long time
3. Gameplay - Storyline - All GW games have a GREAT storyline. WoW has the following: raid, kill, loot
4. Gameplay - Skills - As Scott says, it's almost never ending in WoW - GW has the limited 8 skill slot. Makes gameplay more advanced, and funnier
5. Gameplay - Lag - I've had lag twice since installation of GW in July. When I played WoW, I had lag every fucking day
6. Gameplay - Characters - WoW - Monster characters - GW - Human characters - Humans PWN!

These are my opinions. They do not represent words from any other person. If you question them, do so in Private Message, instead of here, because doing it here, will create a bad argumentation that anyone can see and engage themselves in.

O.o
Well, i used to play WoW before GW. And i was pretty much addicted, but that was when WoW first came out, and it was the bestest thing out thenn. Then, when i found out about GW, i got it and realised it was a heck of a lot better. And, at least with GW there are no monthly fee's, they always suck.

There's a new chinese game out, from the makers of GW, called Aion. Its not on open beta anywhere other than china yet but the gameplay for china looks fantastic. I think you should totally check it out. Cant wait for it to come on OB here in England. But also, i am into this other game calles 'Perfect World'. The graphics arent the best, but the game seem's good. Nothing compared to GW, cause GW is FTW pirat

wow, i think everyone hates WoW with a passion, we are all GW geeks at heart lol, and i must say i love RPG games in general, eg. Fable and Fable 2, they are ace, but GW is by far my favorite game, good story and the 4 games take a long time to complete, een then it doesnt get boring like 99% of games i finish ^^

Yes, a good falling scream...but then you'd need the final "splat" as well.

Well I have been on and off many MMO's over the years and as far as WoW goes, for me, it was all that bad of an experience.

What got me into it was everyone I had know for a really long time in an MMO called Star Wars Galaxies had just up and left because of what the big wigs at SOE had done to the game. So going into it I had full support of friends to get me into how things work and helping out when needed. Now if I had gotten on board with it the first day it was released ummm I think it might have been a bit different of an experience but I don't think it would have been enough to change my feelings towards the game. Now Mind you I was still playing SWG and GW while playing WOW so thats 3 mmos going on at once lol.

If I had to give WoW some props in some areas it would be the following.

1. PVP battlegrounds were always a lot of fun IMO especially the huge ones that have 60 people battling all at once
2. Although a cartoonish art style it did give you a feeling of being in a different world and did steer the game away from being to serious at times. Also they did make them Night Elf and blood Elfs damn hot hehe
3. The Interface although easy it is what makes the game a good pick up and play for anyone wanting to get into MMO's
4. A Crap load of content to keep you on track with lvling your character and not having to go around killing everything in sight mindlessly to just lvl up
5. Mounts, whether its flying or ground they were so much fun to have and could get some very cool looking ones.
6. Some of the later armor you get looks pretty slick and just plane badass

Things that I could say I didnt much like about it.

1. alot of the community you would encounter was very immature or just plane rude
2. Some quests wernt very imaginative in that they seemed to have you going out and killing a certain ammount of creatures or people and thats it. And this would pop up many times but only changing the target.
3. once you do all the end game content and get what you wanted out of it theres really no replay value after that. Its like you more or less put your powerfull character away, make a new one, and just wait around for another expansion to hit.
4. PVP servers seemed to have a lot of griefing going on from what I could tell although this might not have been the case over all.
5. When they would make changes to classes they seemed to make one of them to powerful compared to the others, right now the paladin is way overpowered, In other words they arnt good at balancing out things in their own game lol
6. making money wasnt to hard but trying to lvl up your job skills some of them were just plan thought out wrong. By that I mean you could have a high job lvl of mining, lest say 120 and even though you were able to smelt a type of mineral at that lvl you wernt able to mine it till like 30 more points later and by then its not worth smelting. These jobs would bleed you dry of gold making them not worth picking up at all.

Im gone stop myself there because I could go on and on lol but what it comes down to it is right now I prefer Guild Wars because it's a casual MMO and whenever Im up at college or working its good to know I have it avaiable whenever without having to worry about my subscription running out heh. Now would I go back to WoW in the future? Sure if I found a reason to or if someone threw me a prepaid card to check out something in the game. But yeah Guild Wars is my preferred MMO of choice for now just as GW2 will be when it finally hits heh.

Some guys went in to the same server as a classmate of mine was using. So, these guys stood in the middle of somewhere and started selling black slaves lol. Racism takes a new step, lol
