In Topic: [Answered] Scaling, exotics, precursors and drops?

04 March 2013 - 09:55 PM

technically a precursor can drop anywhere but the frequency of the drop would be so low as to make it highly improbable for any particular individual... then again, with higher numbers playing there's sure to be a few

In Topic: Mandatory Password Change is Coming

01 February 2013 - 04:03 AM

While periodically changing your passwords for every account you have and not using the same password for everything is good password practice, what surprises me is how anet has a list of passwords at all...

does anet not use a hashed password and simply store the hash? if they're storing and sending passwords for the game in clear text no effing wonder so many accounts are being hacked...

RIDING BROOM !!! < mount ??

I don't believe it was intended to be considered a mount in the typical sense of mmo mounts. That being said, i can perceive anet implementing them at some point if the demand is there at some future point but i cannot see horses being used as there never were horses in tyria.

Im also not 100% sure i would want them or feel a need for them the way the game is currently implemented. If the number of waypoints were reduced id consider it a viable alternative...

Fun piece of internet trivia - the term 'trolling' originally referred to fishing for responses and had nothing to do with Scandinavian mythology at all. Thus, baiting for trolls is essentially a form of trolling itself.

It'd be more accurate to simply acknowledge that you had tongue planted firmly in cheek and leave it at that.

Accuracy in comedy is for the perception of the audience. I think most people will get that my entire post is tongue in cheek.

I really like how anet are approaching updates to the game. It can't be easy to roll out such things on a huge scale and im quite surprised by the volume of changes being rolled out for what is estimated to be the smallest of the first 3 updates for this year...

Im sure glad nobody brought up the fact that technically we're still in pre-launch cos most of the prelaunch promised features are still to be implemented...

anet has been secretly working on a new stage of game development called gamma where they continue to try random new ideas on the post-beta game world before launching new pay-for and grind items to use as filler cos they weren't able to meet their own expectations in game design due to problems at the game-engine stage...

while some may see this as trolling, im actually just troll baiting cos it's fun to use your imagination to bridge gaps in the knowledge...

coming in a future update: quaggans enslaved as mounts and real quaggan skin premium backpack!!
