Umm.. look, I'm a secret world player and fan, but GW2 will crush this game when comparing them together.. It will be a much more professional game and with a MUCH MUCH larger community, I mean look at this forum and at GW2's forum ( on gamespot ofc ). GW2 has 46 pages of topics, here we have one and this one page is less active than their last page..
If you're wondering why I'm still choosing to play this it's because of the setting. the world and no levels
but overall for 95% of gamers GW2 will just be a better game...
Armyboy5 posted... Oh, and GW2 doesn't have a sub fee..
Yet, in the end, you'll probably end up paying as much or more than a sub. BTP, etc.
Larger community? Naturally. Better, more professionally done game? Not necessarily. Also, I'll take a community like TSW's over most, even if it is smaller. AO had, hands down, the best community of any MMO I've ever played and still does. The players help make the game what it is as much as anything. In some ways these games aren't even comparable, since they really cater to very different audiences, and the TSW player base actually seems a bit older and mature than I've seen around, and I'd like to say that that's partially because of the sub.
Anyway, apples to oranges. I may eventually play both, but TSW will probably be the better game to me, personally... --- "The key to happiness is disinterest mingled with mild contempt." Better living through apathy. If you're into that sort of thing.
