Why add that content if not EVERYONE can do it!? Sometimes, I wonder what Anet's is smoking. This is a slapped to the face to the small guilds. > But judging from the negative responses from players, we can only hope that they'll change this....................................................... After 2 months.
Pretty much confirms this will be gated group content and small guilds will be excluded from it unless they piggy back on others (which will not get the guild the rewards) or use gold to buy the influence needed.
So basically Anet are trying to put raids into guild wars 2....
Ascended items and now raids....when previously they said they would not have power creep and they would not have content that required more than 5 players in the future....well that was utter bullshit. lol
They really are making GW2 into WoW 2...the difference being these will be open world raids by the sounds of it instead of instanced.
This will also harm smaller guilds now in favour of the larger guilds....
I don't know what Anet are smoking to think this is a good idea for the game but it's obvious now the direction they are taking it, ignoring so many things that are needed and wasting resources on things like this...but then locking it out from a large chunk of the community?
Only large guilds will get the new guild rewards basically.
This is what I was worried about, everytime Anet comes up with something, it sounds and looks awesome on paper and in words but as usual the implementation used to give it to us in the game is so backwards and badly implemented it ends up being a terrible idea.
