#2349235 Was level 80 cap, and Ascended a mistake?

Posted I post stuff on Yesterday, 05:37 PM

Because the game isn't about unforgiving XP curves and gear treadmill.

Not surprised you would say that.  Makes this forum better, IMO.

You should remember before pissing on GW1:  the game you love so much would not exist without it.
Doesn't matter. The fact that GWGuru used to bash the original game more than PvX alone makes the current GW fanboyism absolutely comical. Not to mention that this site was also the driving force behind the GW2 hype train.

Either way "It's not 100% GW therefore it's bad" is a silly argument that proves nothing. Don't even get me started on the "Open world = WoW clone" logic.

There werent any bait and switch tactics in what A-Net did with GW2 as it was already painfully obvious early on that their new game will be vastly different from the original mechanically. The thing is that, PvP aside, the main selling points of this franchise were the lack of a subscription fee, no P2P content and complete subversion of typical MMO antics as well as total freedom to do whatever the hell you like. This is what the trailers promised and this is more or less what we got. Nobody ever mentioned than this is going to be GW with better graphics.

The official forums are filled with whiners who make the same boring threads (written in broken-ass English, without any paragraphs) about how everything in the game sucks and they are going to leave. Except they never leave, they stay to make these threads every goddamn day.

Spoiler
None of what you wrote matters.

Tomes take a few minutes, crafting a few hours, everything else will get you to max level within a day or two. Ascended weapons are cheap, trinkets are essentially free and armor doesn't matter. In fact the difference between pink and orange gear is so minimal that you would only get it if you have money to spare. Plus it's account bound which means it can be shared by several characters.

The bottom line is that "GW2 did/didn't have that" is not an argument. You have to compare GW2 with current games of this genre that enough people actually play.

As opposed to now, where everything is so boring, balance doesn't even matter.
That's subjective.

@SATENIA
What does that have to do with the topic at hand? And what's the with the attitude? Just because you two have different opinions doesn't mean you need to bring your previous arguments to this thread as well... He is allowed to speculate, just like we all are. Go take a break, play with a puppy, get some fresh air and don't reply just for the sake of hating on the man...

On-topic:

Like you I might go for Celestial mixed with zerker because it fits my playstyle. I'm curious to see how these "attunements" work, it reminds me a bit of the Dervish class and its avatars.

Johanson explains to me: "[Channelling a legend] actually changes out the entire back-half of your skillbar, so your heal skill, your utilities and your elite are all determined by the Legend you are currently channelling." Apparently there are traits that "play off" these abilities and combo strongly.
Straight from the proverbial horse’s mouth; changing between legends actually changes out the “back half” of your skill bar, offering new legend themed healing, utility, and elite skills while (presumably) leaving your weapon skills untouched. No word yet on the total number of legends, how many you can toggle through in combat, or how one would go about changing their in-combat selection.

@ the usual flamers. My cousin stopped playing soccer because the playstyle went from 'play how you and your team sees fit' to 'rehearse this specific technique days on end'. Assuming that he stopped because he didn't care about winning or because he wanted to play solo just shows how some people create arguments out of thin air to support their case.

The analogue to GW2 is of course that the game changes when you change the way you play it. I totally understand that some players want to get the most loot or gold out of their time, but I guess that for this game and for soccer and for practically anything else you can do, if you min/max everything maybe there isn't any space left to actually enjoy what you are doing.

For clarification; I’m not saying “love it or leave it” in regards to the game. I’ll be the first tell you there is room for improvement and have quit myself multiple times. But that’s beside the point. My point is the game is designed a certain way and it isn’t going to change. For example; Alex Dimitri says he prefers to play competitively. That’s fine, but GW2 is not a competitive game. It wasn’t designed to be a competitive game. And no amount of bitching or whining on any forums is going to make it a competitive game. You may as well demand the sky become green and the grass become blue. It’s one thing to want the game to become better at what it is, but it is something else entirely to demand “fixes” because you prefer it to be something it’s not, was never designed to be, and the developers have proven time and again they don’t want it to be.

So in Alex’s specific case he really should just leave. Not because he has a negative opinion, but because being here is just a waste of everyone’s time. Especially his own. And as to Arena Net being at fault for what the community has done to the game. No. I’m sure the creators of All Points Bulletin didn’t envision a game wherein the primary source of enjoyment seems to be creating the most offensive car you can, covered in racist slogans, switch on the invincibility imparting “not ready” tag and pile them up over mission gives to prevent people who want to actually play the game from doing anything. But that is exactly what the game has become.

It is like global warming; as much as we all want to be special we also prefer the safety in the believe that some things are simply too big for us to screw up. The assumption that the all-powerful hand of the creator has greater influence than some random slub you’ll never meet. But it just isn’t true; enough people dead set on doing the wrong thing against all reason can destroy the world. So corrupting the spirit of a simple online game is nothing. And as to people demanding this game change to suit their preferences; get out. And I say that un-ironically. As so many of us once said to the legions of WoW addicts who stormed this very forum with their torrent of complains after the game first released; you have your game.

There are plenty of MMOs on the market with the trinity. There are plenty of MMOs on the market with “competitive” PvE. There are plenty of MMOs on the market that offer endless “progression.” There are plenty of MMOs on the market wherein a handful of elitists can upset the balance of the entire community simply by virtue of having no life and no out-of-game responsibilities to hold them back. But GW2 is not one of those games. The Guild Wars series, all the way back to the very first game, has always been an alternative to that; the MMO for people who don’t like MMOs. The game isn’t broken; you just don’t like it. So stop trying to break it and warp it into something it’s not. It’s a niche title for a niche audience of gamers who hate everything you love. And you have your games. WoW, Rift, ESO, SWTOR, Wildstar, and so on. Go play one of those. Don’t corrupt and ruin the ONE GAME with the balls to do something else for someone else.

Okay.  Just got home, and caught this post.  After reading your response, and the way you've acted towards everyone who disagrees with your opinion, You should just close thread and leave.  There are better and more experienced people, including the mods, who've posted on here trying to point out how you are getting worse and worse with each post.  Go ahead and post concise arguments, or give a respectful opinion.  Don't, however, be an ass about it.  I said before, if you want to play a game that way, then fine.  Don't insult and be a prick to those who disagree with you.  

Forgiveness asked from the mods. :(

  • Level cap reduced
  • Monk (primary healer) class introduced
  • World is now fully instanced except cities/villages
  • Crafting skills replaced with crafter NPCs
  • Freely selectable skills for weapon instead of a locked bar
  • End of LS: we'll stop removing content from the game
Any of these might make me want to take a serious look at GW2 again. In general though I agree with above that regardless of what they announce it probably won't be as good as it sounds once they release it, if they even release it in the form that they talk about.


I'm sorry, but these requests are absurd and far-fetched. Almost everything listed here would change the core mechanics, foundation, and systems everything is built on in Gw2. Anet would have to re-vamp everything; gear, maps, leveling, stats, professions, etc.

You might as well play Gw1 because this is almost identical to it.

Is this serious or am I just oblivious to a troll post?

ok back on topic...

What I'd like for the future (now that HOT major features are released from Anet) :
-DirectX12 and graphic optimizations
-I would love to see more of a player home in our home instance, decor, trophies, furniture
-A new race would be pretty cool
-please make it so eles and engi's can weapon swap as long as they are outside of combat. I hate having to open inventory every time to switch weapons outside of combat.
-New hardcore dungeons (ex. from GW1: FoW/UW/DoA) or larger raids (ex. from GW1: Urgoz/TheDeep)
-Something like Alliances! I would personally like to have them remove the multiple guild membership/represent feature and just allow each player to join one guild only

At this point you're trying to shove your non-meta playstyle up everyone's throat, which is no different from being a meta elitist.

To be honest there is nothing boring about playing as a team of 6 glass cannons. What a lot of Berserker's haters don't realise is that this build offers no margin of error, so any mistake will lead to a party wipe regardless of what dungeon you're in.


What some people want is for meta to change, but this is a moronic thing to ask for at this point given how many people built full Ascended zerk sets already. Not to mention that any build is perfectly capable of completing all the content in the game and there are plenty of people who simply don't care what everyone else in their group runs.

But most importantly, any change to the current DPS meta will bring back something akin to holy trinity. So before you cry, think if you are prepared to spend an hour looking for a healer.
