What's the "special gift" you get when you visit Tixx in LA?
15 slot Gift Box (Bag)
Toymaker's bag (Backpack)
3 Unsafe Gifts (3 Random Toy weapon skins)
200 Mystical Cogs

The Ugly clothes vendor now has Toy Frames for 250 a piece btw.

What shocks me more is that they didn't tell any body about the Tonics FIRST so people would have been forced to buy the pets from the gem store having using up their only chance to get the pet. Seems like one of a-nets little sneaky tactics they usually pull, surprised they didn't do it this time...

I have not spent anything and after halloween lottery crap and now mini pet gambling I dont plan to, got nothing to blame anything on...

Just completely against any type of casino gambling in the gem store. If they plan to add the trio mini pet pack later on....after players have gamble loads of money on it.....I dont think arena net would be that stupid but you never know.

I'm not saying you did, but they told you flat out that more stuff would be available. And, fi you take notice, there's almost no RNG in this iteration at all.


#2114465 Wintersday Event Page Updated

They pretty much spoiled the entire event on their event schedule.

Good. Anet needs to quit trying to be cute and cryptic about their events. That was one of the biggest flubs with the Halloween event.

With Wintersday it looks like they wised up on that front, and also applied some common sense to the event schedule.

We'll see if they do better with the bugged/broken event content in a few days.

What? alt+f4 is cheating? I thought I was making up for a feature that was mistakenly left out of the game. Denying perma-stealth thief's badges of honor... Because you know killing someone while invisible is honorable


#2108624 Dye drop rate now way too low

Posted DuskWolf on 05 December 2012 - 07:58 PM

Are you honestly surprised by this? I wouldn't mind betting that this could be traced back to Cox, and a "polite suggestion" that the dyes on the cash shop would be more desireable if they were made a more rare commodity via artificial scarcity. You know how people love being "special" in games.

This was definitely intentional. Just another dagger in the back, one of many daggers.


#2098127 Dye drop rate now way too low

Posted AetherMcLoud on 27 November 2012 - 01:57 PM

Dyes should be accountwide that is their biggest problem IMHO.


#2098126 Dye drop rate now way too low

Posted MandraxUK on 27 November 2012 - 01:57 PM

I'm a born skeptic and wouldn't be surprised if they have done this on purpose in an attempt to boost sales of dye in the cash shop...


#2107259 Undocumented Nerfs/Changes?

Posted MazingerZ on 04 December 2012 - 07:08 PM

It's been broadly accepted by the community at large that they are manipulating the drop rates behind the scenes.  The fact that they can control value/demand and scarcity is a powerful tool in leveraging the value of gold and therefore driving people to the cash shop to convert gems->gold.  In fact, there should be no reason that they cannot change the drop rates on the fly.  The official forums are heavy proof that they believe in controlling the perception of things, so many do not believe them when they say otherwise.

The jump change was to fix a wall-hacking issue.  While I applaud the effort, it clearly wasn't QA'd properly.  The entire QA process is balls and a sham for a game that's been in development so long with modern development systems in process, like Agile.

If the jump change had been seamless beyond fixing wall-hacking, there would never have been a need to bring it up.  Players who were wall-hacking would comment it on it, but no one playing the game legitimately would have batted an eye.  But instead, it broke the game.  A core part of the game.  And so now people are upset.

That's the value of a proper QA process.  When fixes do not actually work, when patch notes are worded incorrectly and changes that should appear seamless actually break your game for the playerbase to see.. That is shitty QA.  Either from QA, or the people who are managing the QA.

"Guild leaders are able to demote other players of the same rank."

I wonder why it took them three months for this one.

The beauty of it all is that they released a game bugged beyond belief, and their half-incompetent "fixes" are interpreted as -working hard for the game and community- by the hardcore GW2 fans.

They also released the game in 2012 with barely any features and game modes, even without those BASIC, standard ones, and their POTENTIAL, vague plans in that department manage to incite excitement in the previously mentioned group of people. Sad, or funny?

- Car manufacturer: "We are happy to announce that we released the latest model of our car in 2012 with no tires, no steering wheel and no seats. But we are looking into it and MIGHT add them later down the road. Also, the wipers, the central locking system and fuel injection aren't working but we are working hard on fixing that"

- The masses: "Wow, this is the best car manufacturer EVER! What a car! We might even get all of the standard -equipment- Yugo has and which is essential for a car to serve it's basic purpose. This looks really promising." <orgasm>

I remember when EQ2 launched and they had the /pizza command that would actually take you to the pizza hut online order page

Haha I remember that. In GW2 if you type /QQ it takes you to the official forums.

1) Every team in that stream runes an ele, so no there is no bias, infact every top team in NA also runs an ele too since java from PZ switched from warrior to learn ele. Xeph's team (Paradigm) arguably the best team in the world right now runs a DPS ele as do many other top teams, so trying to argue that only bunker ele's are strong is just garbage.

Every team runs a mesmer too but I see no talk about them needing nerfs. Well of course they didn't talk about that because one of them played a mesmer, wouldn't want his OP class to get nerfed now would he.

All this talk about "best teams in the world" is just a load of bullshit.
