In Topic: Thoughts on the September Feature Pack?

29 August 2014 - 06:58 AM

I'm pretty much in the same boat as the OP. The feature pack thus far has been incredibly underwhelming and disappointing. This is made even worse when you consider the fact that a bunch of these "features" are already implemented in the Chinese version of the game and yet Anet insists on creating unwarranted hype by locking the announcements and saying "we can't go into details until it's released". These revamps they are doing just feel like they are nitpicking at things that were never really big issues or should have been squeezed in one of the patch notes as a little side note. Personally I feel like the game is having a problem with retention so it's very awkward to see their focus shift to new players (when no substantial changes have been made that would result in an influx of new players) rather than trying to keep old ones engaged. The living story can only help so much. I can't even step into WvW without someone mentioning how the game is dead.

One of the recent announcements said something like, "downed state is very overwhelming for new players" as a reason for removing downed state until level 5. WHAT?! Then it goes on to talk about how new players need more direction and how the personal story needs to get changed and all this other nonsense. If they are choosing to focus on these types of fixes, why not on something more important like WvW (stuck bug on siege since day 1 of release, or the bunch of other exploits that have never been touched), class skill bugs, Engineer hobo sacks, unlocking traits, the problems associated with large guilds, precursor crafting, Skyhammer/ranking in sPvP, etc. Stuff that has had significant outcry for a very long time now. Things like official GvG, additional sPvP maps, new PvE maps, expansions, and new game modes are suitable for content patches. The issues I mentioned are not considered content, it very well could have been stuff that should have been addressed in this feature pack (according to what Anet defines as a "feature").  I just don't get it anymore, and I don't think Anet does either. /Rant

I think there is probably some more (better) things waiting for us that they haven't revealed yet. Still, the birthday gift items are a bit lame. Oh well.

The notion of not having to deal with culling anymore is amazing. Can't wait. ;)

I'm fairly certain they will never reveal the exact details on what they detected on your system as that would probably end up helping the real hackers gain a ton of insight on how to evade detection (assuming you people are telling the truth). Perhaps you can open up another ticket fully detailing every program you had running while you played guild wars 2 as well as what you were doing in the game (in your case, every little thing you were doing in the dungeon runs) and they might find something that was incorrectly determined to be a hack.
