In Topic: People are far too impatient and demanding about the headstart.

25 August 2012 - 12:56 PM

Dunno about you guys, but the main reason I prepurchased was to play early. That's money down in advance, unlike a preorder. It's not my problem if Arenanet have not provided a sufficient architecture for everyone to log in on day 1. I'll be after claiming some kinda compensation back if the headstart turns out to be a total bust.

That's not whining that's having consumer rights. If you lose even 1 day of your headstart it means you were sold something you did not get. Stick up for yourself people.

In Topic: Pve combat button mashing?

15 April 2012 - 02:07 PM

I admit my first instinct playing this game before I learn my skills will prob be to mash stuff on cooldown but I think the game will teach me as I level up that this is not the way to go.

I'm just repeating what others have said but almost every damage skill has a secondary effect which needs to be used shrewdly, not just whenever it's on cooldown. As the guy on the GI video states, you blow that cooldown and you don't have the secondary effect (stun, root, cripple... or even remove those things on yourself) available when your face is abouts to be melted. Mashing buttons will likely get you killed fighting anything above weak trash mobs, those ettins he fights in the video shows that.

I'll give an example. If I remember correctly there is a thief attack that actually includes a dodge. So just blow that for extra DPS or... maybe save it until your endurance is too low to dodge? If you are fighting something hard that free dodge is going to save your life so many times with good timing.

In Topic: March 2012: State of the Game | GW2W

It had me going for a little while, but I was so relieved when I realised it was a joke. If GW2 coming out in 2013 I would have to freeze myself like Cartman waiting for Wii.

In Topic: so whats the rationale of allowing one character to be a part of multiple gui...

I don't like this idea and I won't join multiple guilds. It's not all sunshine and rainbows. You can only be in one guild chat and earn influence in one guild at once as far as we know. You choose when you log on which guild you will be 'in' during your play session.

I will feel bad earning influence for guilds other than the one with my friends and family. I also want to be able to talk to all my guildies which will be a pain if I am in another guild chat.

I don't mind others using it but I won't be too happy to see someone in my guild representing some other one, especially if we are struggling on numbers. I feel this could cause a ton of drama for this reason alone.

In Topic: ArenaNet: List of Pre-Purchase Retailers

IIRC they tweeted saying no steam for pre purchase, not necessarily no steam for launch.


Who in their right mind won't prepurchase though? Means buying 2 copies if you want it on Steam and headstart/beta. The reason I was hoping for Steam it has always been reliable for me, most my games collection on there and I get an extremely fast download from them. They often have preloads for games too.
