#2181088 Most dominating race...

Posted Yski on 19 March 2013 - 03:02 PM

Stupid bookah, obviously the asura will be dominant in the end. We are superior in every respect.

We control the safest and fastest transportation network in Tyria. It not only gives us an edge against any military threath, but it's also economically beneficial. The currency income gained from waypoint fees alone would melt your brain. Believe me, it has even happened to our calculation golems. That bring me to my next point: superior technology. Need I say more?

However, even if none of that existed we would still triumph. None of the advantages listed above existed just a couple of hundred years ago. It is because our superior intellect that we've risen and it's because of our superior intellect that we will keep doing so. No other race can rival even our lesser geniuses, not to mention me.

But fear not, join my army today and get an experimental cookie for free! The radiation is perfectly harmless and once you've eaten it  you'll even get to join my undea- I mean, undefeatable hor- err.. special forces! :D

#2182292 State of the Dungeon Crowd - Good or Bad?

and its not about popularity ofthe dungeon, look at the demands i nthe first screenshot.

im talking about the personality of player base, not preferred dungeons

These are two totally separate issues and we must be careful in trying to relate them. Does assembling a specific team equal bad personality? Not at all. There are many valid reasons for restricting the team composition.

So we are left with two separate questions:

1. Have meta team builds replaced the ability of a regular pugger to find a dungeon group? My experience says no. I pug 99.5% of my dungeon runs. I pugged my way to Dungeon Master. I do random pugs in FotM regularly. In over a thousand runs, I have never been kicked from a group.

2. Is the personality of dungeon runners bad? You'll find jerks anywhere in the game. Actually, I have found fewer in the organized teams than in random pugs. I can remember only one occasion where someone was setting up a CoF speed-farm group and being a jerk about it.

By setting a minimum bar to entry you eliminate the players who don't care enough to work hard for something. When I first started running CoF, I didn't have the gear or skills to run at the level I do now, so I invested time and effort to getting what I needed. Now I run with pro groups.

Profession restriction has no definite link to the personality of a player or group. If you want to run with the designed teams, meet the requirements and they will be happy to have you; the majority are quite friendly. If you can't be bothered to put in the effort to meet the requirements, there are plenty of random pugs that run dungeons perfectly well.

#2076294 Who Thought Radiance From Lotro Was A Good Idea

Not the only thing they copied.. Radiance was not good in LoTRO and i doubt it will be any different this time round.

Fun fact:
This system existed in GW1 long before LotRO was even released :)

Why does it matter to you? you don't need to get the armour. It's optional, even if its the stats are slightly better. Legendaries are also better and they were in before ascended. No one whined about that?

Legendaries weren't any better. Ignorance much?

#2051981 November Update - Date Confirmed

I absolutely hope for team content and social stuff.

Like Guild Halls, Capture the Flag PvP and new instances (without red circles) like FoW/UW.

#1962470 Is it safe to farm CoF for tokens at the moment?

Posted SerDrak on 24 September 2012 - 03:46 AM

It's kind of sad...

I've been sitting at the entrance to CoF for at least an hour now looking for a group. Every time I join one I ask if they're doing exploits, and every time they answer "yes."

This is ridiculous. ArenaNet needs to hurry up and fix this so I can run the dungeon with pugs legitimately.
