Guild Wars 1 fans want a Kickstarter Project to revitalize the game.

Known for it's unprecedented solid, organized, competitive PvP experience allied with a friendly but also extensive and satisfying PvE, Guild Wars was launched at 2005 and has been out there for almost 8 years. Since the arrival of it's big brother though, Guild Wars 2, the game has been abandoned by it's creators - Arena Net - which led to Community itself make a Open Letter, asking nothing more than a Kickstarter Project to revitalize the game! What's interesting though it's that they are redeeming ArenaNet of any financial commitment.

Says a lot about the quality of GW2

Indeed. Hopes it get approved so they would at least hear their costumers.

"abandoned" ? The game had stellar and ongoing support via balances patches , bonus and extensions .

Of course the focus was going to shift later on , but they ended their involvement with Gw1 in a stellar fashion .

But more power to petition if they manage to get more

Gw2 is awesome . The first one is a pretty different game that runs in even ancient machines though. Gw2 wasn't a console style rehash of a game, it's actually a different feeling game .

The amount of users has plummeted.

The competative pvp scene of GW2 says hello. In all honesty the absolute lack of some would say basic features (joining friends on same team in casual game) or even most wanted features (different game types, info taken from Gw2 forums) not to mention the outright neglect tpvp has seen, I am not suprised somebody is actually trying to do something to revitalize the original GW1 pvp when the second was beyond disappointing.

So this game flopped? From what I gathered it looked like the next best thing after all the hype videos and how everyone was saying it was different to the typical MMO.

And yes I know what my name is and the image in it, I just like the design and name.

It's quite successful , but like it was told repetitively to gw1 fans , gw2 wouldnt be similar . it just retains the spirit of competitive pvp and a few ideas .

Going from a closed and ull arena based structure to open world wasnt going to be a straightforward transitition

Well, it's not actually that open of a world. It's more like instances everywhere.

It's pretty dissapointing, because MMO's have gone from persistent worlds to instanced worlds.

Baka-akaB1901d ago (Edited 1901d ago )

It's open enough . it was pretty much the only sure way of getting the story and questing content that personalize and up to such scale .

Older mmo just trew you in a rather empty world , with ourselves to fill it with our imagination , mobs to chain-grind kill and the occasional raids to force collaboration .

I'm not throwing the stone at them , there were good back then , and still are for those than care more about a sense of full freedom and exploration , but it's not the same

The game is doing very well but from what I hear, it's a much different game from GW1. I guess the original fans want to rekindle an old flame. Nothing wrong with that of course.

I was a huge fan of GW1. I think I had somewhere arounf 3500 hours in the game. But, I bought GW2 and hated it. I didn't hate it because it was a bad game, but because it was so different compared to GW2. They tried making the game for a different crowd and not their GW1 fanbase. That is my main issue with GW2 and I just don't enjoy it like I did GW1.

I never played GW1 (I was stuck up WoW's ass for 5 years), but I thoroughly enjoy GW2.
Still, if this goes anywhere, I'd like to give it a shot, providing I can get something like a demo or free test period up front.

You can demo gw1 right now for free and the game isn't pay to play anyways
