Should you try Guild Wars 2?

Guild Wars 2 is one of the oldest MMORPGs that people are playing right now. It’s insanely fun, it offers great gameplay and despite being rather old, it continues to attract a lot of people. It has an average of 360k players every day, and a total of 12.69 million players. That’s a lot of people playing this game every day. Also, the interesting thing is that they announced a new expansion, so the game is not going anywhere.

A stunning game world with lots of things to do

Why do you find so many people playing Guild Wars 2 years after it was launched? That’s because the game itself was very well thought out and it has expanded quite a lot since launch. While it’s not the most popular MMO right now, it’s definitely out there. There are many reasons behind that, one of them being the really impressive game world. The story in Guild Wars 2 is not the best, a lot of players know that.

Yet what really makes Guild Wars 2 different is the massive game world, great cities you can explore and the fact that there are so many different races. You get to feel a part of the game world and it’s vibrant, it has its own economy and you are a part of something greater.

One of the best combat systems

Most MMOs require you to just click and the character attacks automatically. Things are different with Guild Wars 2. The game is bringing a skill-based combat system. You have a lot of skills to choose from and you will need to use them wisely if you want to win over your enemies. It’s a very interesting idea and one that continues to expand in regards to the gameplay and rewarding attention to detail.

Also, the developers listen to the customers. Initially then level cap in Guild Wars was 20, now it’s 80+ and it makes a lot more sense. They bring in a true focus on exploration, crafting and experimenting within the game. It’s interesting and it offers you reasons to come back.

Why do people come back to Guild Wars 2?

Aside from the massive game world and constant sense of immersion, there are plenty of other reasons to play Guild Wars 2 in 2020 and beyond. They have a lot of skins, which means you can easily come back to complete quests and challenges in order to win. On top of that, you can play a random map, obtain achievements and improve your loot.

Even if the Guild Wars 2 story is not the best in the series, their lore is amazing. There’s a lot to cover in the game, and the overall quality on offer is pretty impressive. The raiding system is great, the game is always spruced up with new ideas, and you’re always enjoying new challenges. It’s also a game that you can solo in without a problem. You can go and enter raids, or you can play as a group. The possibilities are there, the world is extraordinary, and Guild Wars 2 continues to stand out as an incredible, ever expanding world that you want to be a part of!

On accuracy

People (myself included) often wonder about the accuracy of the numbers on the site. I was pleasantly surprised to see Albion Online post player numbers recently and we were extremely close with our calculations!

So it would appear our estimation of Daily Players is a little higher, but given that it’s based entirely on an algorithm it’s great to see!

Our recent graph matches their growth as well!
