I going to say this here because I believe I among friends and I don't think here it wont cause flaming. Honestly from what I have seen they majority of comments like these are coming from GW2 fans, sure you'll read some people say they think this or that decision a game company make is bad, or that they don't think a game is heading in the right direction like on these forum people are always talking bout how they're not sure about this or that thing that EM is trying to implement in Tera. But you never see SWTOR fans in a RIFT forum saying the game is going to fail or making ridicules claims or comparisons about the games. Go almost any where though were GW2 is mentioned and atleast 30-50% of the comments are exaggeration about the game, pompous speculation of how GW2 is going to be the "WoW killer," or just down right trolling. That wouldn't be bad in my opinion if it was limited to there forums and websites ( it would just be people being a little overly passionate or excited about a game that they like that is about to come out), but it's not. I can't tell you how many time I have come across a forum in which some one is compering GW2's battle system to Tera, which to me seems really ridicules. I'm not trying to trash GW2 in any way either, I plan to play it and am very excited about some of the stuff I hearing about the game and think that many of its features may even be better than Tera's, but NOT its battle system NO [filtered] WAY. GW2 Devs say it's an action combat system and doesn't use a tabbing targeting system, which sound good but that doesn't seem to match up with what im seeing in previews of the game, and NO WAY does look any were near as good Tera (and I'm not talking about the graphics, that another issue.) Check out this video of pvp in GW2 beta that is pretty recent to see what I'm talking about.
You can see that there doesn't seem to be alot of aiming ( at least not like in tera), if there was the player wouldn't be able to to reveal his enemies position behind a wall when he can't see them, and to me it seems pretty close to WoW. But just mention that any were but here (Im hoping) and KABOOM every GW2 fan is on your [filtered]. which is sad because even though it looks like a good game it's stuff like that that ruins MMOs cuz it makes the community unbearable.
Well that's my 2 cents, went on longer then I thought I would but just had to get it out.
