In Topic: Considering coming back

Lucas Ashrock. You overstate so many things. You speak as though you are all knowing and everyone else is an idiot. May I suggest, that the reason you are encountering so much kicking from groups is you? I have never encountered any problems and have met 99% nice people in anything I do.

OP it depends what you want from the game. I am having fun with fractals and wintersday content right now. I will continue on with story + explorable dungeons and WvW/sPvP at some point no doubt. I can log on and just do what I fancy whenever which is great.

Fractals do have agony starting at level 10 yes, but only on bosses and all agony attacks are avoidable. Check out the videos of people doing 49+ fractals (where any agony resist you can get is worthless by that stage), to see how good play is more important. I would say that once you get past level 10 fractal, you really see the difference between good and bad players. You need communication and co-ordination. It is good.

In Topic: With Current Ecto Prices...Salvage or TP Rare Loot?

Does anyone know if the plain rares that often drop in fractals, are just normal with regard to ecto chance? A friend has said that he doesn't think they give any at all, but I could have sworn I saw mention of them working normally.

In Topic: Gold-making Opportunity?

I only got 7 getting my 100 kills I needed for monthly, earlier today. Took about 40 mins, not many people around, but the last few were definitely quicker when I ended up in a quick kill route with 2 others. Very kind of you to share what could be a good opportunity anyway. Cheers, Illein!

In Topic: Anyone else annoyed by short duration events?

20 November 2012 - 09:07 AM

The annoying thing is they had set a precedent themselves for what a one time event was. Mad King's cinematic destruction of the lion statue, followed by a repeatable mini dungeon, for a whole day.

When they set it at a time that my son couldn't play and my friends were faced with a total unplayable mess, I honestly thought it was no biggie. I figured we would instead catch it on a repeat run, when it was less rammed and sleep, school, or work weren't an issue and watch the cinematic on youtube.

Really I thought this because the alternative of a special one time event with major rewards only for those who could spare 3 hours at that one specific time, was so ridiculously stupid, it was laughable.

Unfortunately they went with the ridiculously stupid option. So my son my friends and I will be playing another game when we find one to settle on. They have turned us from guaranteed further gem and expansion purchases, to no longer supporting their game, because they have shown they don't care about us.

I would say that doing the event at the time of highest concurrency (which means the time when the highest amount of people are logged in) was a rather good way to include as many as possible.

I know what concurrency is. The last I remember hearing was a peak 300K plus concurrent users, from 2 million plus accounts sold. I won't insult you, I am sure you can work out that this is a pretty small proportion. For a worldwide company, it is not good enough.
