Which should I get, the monthly paying in WOW is no problem XD so which is the better game
Personally, playing both GW and WoW, WoW is definitely superior. It just didn't have that fun factor that WoW has for some reason.
World of Warcraft by far.
once you go WoW, its over - GG.
dont ruin your life vegitto-kun
I enjoyed the guild wars trail, ended up playing 7 hours in one go, with a warrior/necromancer at level 14 D:
Haha after seeing the southpark episode i want to really try it
WoW, i got both, wow is just funner.
wow is addicting
GW seems to be rather addicting too must be if i played it for 7+ hours XD
was quite fun hitting on poor level 1 monster with 3 level 20 people in your party XD
Wow is just like 1 crazy big dota game isnt it?
1 big dota game?
What's even more fun is to have a party of level 60s killing level 10 players and waiting for zergs to come and try kill you, just for them to realize you've escaped.
You can kill players in GW and WoW? and wtf is a zerg?
zerg? zerling? starcraft?!
Zerg is charging at people *I hate these stupid computer nerdy words*.
You can kill players in WoW if they choose to fight you or you can go on a "PVP" server and attack whenever you want.
wtf is a PvP server
Person Vs Person. You have a option to pick that or "PvE" which is Person vs Enviroment *AI* but can also face othere players but with permission unless you do matchs, which you get rank for.
GW is best known for PvPing, i hear its really fun
hes never played STARCRAFT!
Yup i never played starcraft,warcraft nor diablo
so generally PvP is the better thing to pick as you fight both the ai monsters AND the people online(with requests)
um can i use my character in guild wars currently in Pvp?
yah, you use your characters in PvP
there are many modes in PvP (clanvsclan, etc)
and id like to say that warcraft is the greatest RTS game ever.
I never bothered playing it, i only played command and conguer
I'm not sure if I'd recommend a PvP server to a new player.
Cruising through Stranglethorn at lvl 30 and getting ganked by a lvl 60 isn't very fun. Granted, I live for random encounters with other players, but the gankfests are tiresome. I just wish PvP meant I could attack players of my own faction.
If you like getting ganked or want to kill lowbies yourself, then go PvP. If you want left alone when you're trying to level then go PvE, you can always sate your thirst for PvP in a Battleground (faction VS faction minigames, like Capture the Flag) anyway.
For what it's worth, real mean go PvP.
@vegitto: gank - a surprise attack
I'd choose GW > WoW, anyday. Guild Wars is really based on the whole concept of teamwork, there are hardly any quests that you can finish without the help of a party. Out of all the games I've played, Guild Wars probably has one of the best player communities out there.
I've played WoW for a while and it was just not my cup of tea, farmers and people selling items for real money sicken me.
Something I used to play form 9:00am - 4:00am is always good.
so you can kill anybody on PvP? don't you need to request it first?
i think its like an FFA
just a big map with heroes here and there
If the money really dosnt bother you then go for WoW. However Guild Wars is still a very good game that is a great deal at the price You will enjoy both, but WoW over all the better game (which is to be expected if you are paying so much for it lol)
Personally I play Guild Wars as I gave up on WoW cuz I'm really cheap and poor XD Although I don't regret it as Guild Wars is also really fun
whats all your names on guild wars XD me be Vegitto kun
WoW has two factions, Alliance and Horde.
On PvE, two players of the same faction can consent to a duel, which doesn't actually kill the loser, you just get a "You have defeated Soandso" message. When a player runs into someone who's of the opposing faction, one of them has to flag themselves for PvP for the other to engage. It's like flipping a Please-Kill-Me switch. After flagging you stay that way for ... five, ten, or fifteen minutes, I forget which, and you can be attacked by any player of the opposing faction. Once they attack they're flagged as well though, it's like a big chain reaction. If you go for the allotted time (5, 10, 15 *shrug*) without attacking another player you become unflagged, making you unattackable to them.
In PvP the dueling rule is still there, but there are Alliance and Horde-controlled territories. These are mostly the starting areas. When an Alliance player enters Horde Territory, he is flagged for PvP automatically, and vice-versa. Most of the areas are Contested Territories, meaning no faction controls them, and EVERY player is flagged for PvP upon entering. Keep in mind members of the same faction can't kill each other, they can only duel.
There aren't any level restrictions for PvP. Meaning if you're level 10 and in a contested area, a level 60 player can walk by, one-shot you into a grave, and then go on with no penalties (or rewards.) You won't lose experience or any items for dying though, so the only detriment to you is having to walk back to your corpse.
I had WoW but never liked it so I recommend GW. The guys in my class has gone completely insane playing WoW, they are talking about it all the time.
GW also get's a bit boring after a certain point if you haven't found a good guild (which I haven't)
I randomly joined TDA XDD (the dutch alliance)
GW is a really awsome game. It's just that you need to find a Guild later on, and you need to be very active, or it'll get boring, exactly as Kayo said.
Aye, ive got both, but i tend to play WoW more. I like the PvP feature, and the also the presence of RP on the RP servers. Good fun all round.
You can get both since one isn't subscription based...and then you'll see which one you like more.
I personally like WoW more because...well it is WoW (yeah the game is itself the answer to play it.)
GW, I played it for awhile, but it got really boring after awhile, and if you own WoW too, the community can get really annoying.
Now the warning about WoW...if I have to make a parrellel it would be that all other games are like pot, something fun to induldge in from time to time, with a few who actually get addicted to it (or think they do). World of Warcraft is like CRACK, you take it your hooked, I mean sure you find a few people who were able to get off of it, but baby that is by far the minority.
The people on here telling you they like GW better...well lets just say they are sprinkles compared to the ocean that is Warcraft. For ever person that told you to play WoW, consider those 100 votes each, everyone who is telling you to play GW...eh, 2 would probably equal 1/4 of a vote. (unless we are treating this like the Senate...but the Senate sux)
Now back on topic...I would get both, but the only Subscription based game I would get is WoW, and a lot of other people agree.
(This is going on how much money the Game gets from people who are playing them, since a lot of games ask for the same amount, it is pretty much evident that more people pay to play WoW)
Butters, join the internet sensation that is World of Warcraft before we all kill you.
WoW FF11 has a nice percentage, higher then i thought anyway.
WOW @ the chart
GW belongs in the other 3.3%
7 hours?! Try playing 40 hours straight just to get one piece of armor. Yeah, WoW is if I'm not mistaking, the most addicting game out there. In general of course, other people may disagree, but for the most part, I think it was stated the most addicting. To be honest, it ruined my life for about 3 months, until I quit, realizing I couldn't go on like that anymore.
Buy WoW if you want to have a years worth of entertainment before you get the slightest bit disinterested.
And yes I have played GW, WoW > GW.
Here you go ...
This is what WoW does to you...
Have fun , Im glad I broke the addiction...
I Looked at this video , makes you think , kids are really addicted!
Worth a Look , Im not telling you not to play it , just check it out.
I wont get addicted liek that idiot XD
I regret picking up this game honestly .
people who get addicted to games are mentally weak seriously, i don't see how you could ever get addicted something like warcraft
its like smoking or alcohol i guess :/
Read the text under the chart. That goes by the amount of money pulled in my the company from the game. GW dosnt have a monthly fee so its placement on the chart isn't accurate at all as to how many people play it.
you mean it ISNT accurate
play the game at level 60
Both games are splendid, but I prefer GW myself. Much less grindfesty, and it's pvp is much better if you ask me.
Because spending 5+ hours with 39 other people in one horribly repetitive dungeon on weekdays is awesome.
Yeah you obvisoly have to play it first to say that. I think I'm strong-minded enough to actually break the addiction. That itsself is compareable to breaking a smoking addiction.
...What were you doing Grinding in WoW?
That is like the slowest way to level...did you need gold for your mount or something?
Quest/Instance man! Go find Manricks wife or something. The game isn't like southpark, you aren't going to get up 30 levels by killing boars all day.
