malificient

this is the kind of fairytale i like to see being retold in a way that is both creative and with the right contrast of fairy and dark at least enough for a disney film. and it does it without offending the male by being all too mushy.
if it wasn't for disney i would rather have my fairytales in the style of pan's labyrinth; which in any way is superior.
but disney has a way to make it dark enough while still maintaining it family friendly, which is a skill on itself.
some others have tried, but they really don't got the balance right; snow white and the huntsman for example failed to create something more out of the original story. they missed their chance of character development on especially the evil queen in this one, which i don't even have to mention on malificient, because its all there.

i would recommend watching this one and worth rewatching it, great fam. flick!

In Topic: Honest opinion on GW2 - for a new player possibly

17 August 2014 - 06:13 AM

i bought the game for world versus world and their class designs (the thief and necromancer skills looked cool)

after having created 7 of 8 classes, fully exotic tier geared. played too many hours on the game from pve to pvp and wvw, created two legendaries, bought two commander tags, led a guild into wvw, dungeons and guild challenges, played team pvp and solo pvp and reached the highest rank; dragon (bear rank before the april patch), had to pay for server transfer because the wvw community died on my server, still having 1200+ gold gathering dust in my pocket and currently only log in once a week like a retired player to join my former guild members, who started their own legacy as a wvw guild...

i can say this about the game:

lore/story/world/characters are feminised (at least for me this is a turn off; a major no-no for future media purchases)

pvp is team depended and a bad team creates for a frustrating experience. the pvp community will phase-out fast because dedicated teams aren't challenged enough, while novice players have to invest into too many things (#1find teamplayers #2create a decent setup #3find a server for a third party program to use your headset #4speak-up! you shut-in pvp geek! be socially comfortable; in my experience most players aren't so comfortable to speak) before getting to enjoy some decent challenges. the individual player aren't rewarded enough within the team oriented matches. (it doesn't matter if you're a good player, if your team sucks you're pretty much doomed). the matching system is horrendous.
another thing to mention is that gw2 pvp caused me eye fatigue.
despite all of this i still had fun with pvp, but that is mostly because i am game-competitive by nature.

wvw is the gem of this game. you need to invest a lot more, as mentioned about pvp, to get the most out of it, but i would say it's worth doing it. get a headset with a decent mic and speak up! find a dedicated wvw guild and start rolling into fun battles with your guild.
but there is something arenanet is holding it's community back and this has been going on for a while now; the gvg community had potential of growing but arenanet has not acknowledged this part of their players-base enough and it got shoved away like an ugly stepchild.
for new players it would be a bigger investment to find a decent server, early adopters of the game had the luxury of exploring servers for gvg for free for a momentary. i would say for the best experience you should choose a mid tier server; the queue would be decent and the battles will be less polarised. dedicated gvg guilds would be there to teach you all you need to know about coordinated team combat.

i'm gonna leave out dungeons/pve and shit, because the game failed to get me invested enough due to its direction of lore/story/world/characters
