Dedicated players are people that race through all the content as fast as possible so they can live in Orr.  They tend to bore easily.  Gee, I wonder why.

A not-so-dedicated player like myself spends time playing the game.  I take my time leveling and try to experience everything the game has to offer while working towards my goals.  I have logged nearly 850 hours, have several 80s in exotic gear and I don't have a legendary yet.  I'm not bored.  I'm obviously not a dedicated player according to Anet.

You're playing the game wrong. More rushing, less sight-seeing.

#2060719 Rate GW2!

Posted Al Shamari on 04 November 2012 - 08:00 AM

I give it a 6, personally. That isn't to say I don't love the game, but it is missing things.

- Alternate PvP modes.
- Cross server communication features, guesting, etc.
- Guild halls and better guild functions (calenders, alliances, etc).
- No larger team, elite areas (Underworld, Fissure of Woe, Sorrow's Furnace, The Deep, etc).
- Straying away from instanced game play, give us some more instances aside from dungeons.
- The quest system is overall rather silly.
- Dynamic events need to feel more "dynamic" and exciting, give me truly harder bosses that take real skill and team tactics, not higher health pools.

Those are just a few of the things that I believe they could work on (some of which, yes I understand they're working on). I will probably make a thread of my own to expand on some of these things in the future.

It, like any other thinly veiled thread name on the first page, is just another whine thread for the same 7 people to bro hug bump about how much they don't like the game and want it to be WoW and/or GW1.

Mostly that's the case sure, but every once in a while someone does mention actual, real issues. You just have to work through the BS to get to the good posts in most of them, lol.

I'm actually enjoying the game so far and I haven't even tried to make a new character. I hit 80 the first week of launch and everyday I find myself pressed for time and playing Guild Wars is all I do.. Sleep, wake up and play guildwars, work, sleep, & repeat.

Not sure why everyone has such a  strong dislike to what's currently going on.

I guess it falls under the "different strokes for different folks" quote. For the people that love the game, little else is needed except maybe an expansion or two down the road and upkeep in the form of patches/bug repairs/etc. For others, ArenaNet could implement everything they ask for and more, and they'd still find a problem and still want more/bitch about how what they asked for was put in, as was proven with some issues through the Halloween event and a few things before it. Some games are just not for some people!

Also... Guild Wars 2 misses a game mode... Guild War Vs another Guild... wtf?! it's the own name of the game and there are no guild halls and no gvg at launch? come on!!
Do you know what the Guild Wars was?

"The Guild Wars are the series of at least three wars among different guilds in the three human kingdoms of Ascalon, Kryta, and Orr. The wars ended only because the charr invasion from the north meant an even bigger threat to the three kingdoms."

Quote

Roaming around Orr is not fun, going for a FoW run was fun
Doing a GvG was fun, zerging around is...? ffs i'd rather go play Battlefield 3 in a 64ppl server
Making a party, looking for sinergized build was challenging in GW1 ppl had to be real pr0h at their role now?? they simply allowed everyone do everything basically degrading everything to an aeshtetical factor since i can heal in heavy armor with a big sword or hit like a truck in meele with a magical scepter and soft silk dressing, wtf is this!?
Armor/weapon skins from GW1 and AION was great, what's this junk now?
Char emotes in GW1 were a lot and all funny, where did they go in GW2?!

FoW was fun yes, but UW wasn't.
GvG wasn't fun, zerging around can be.
I hated waiting for hours for people to finally decide on what build they would take, and even worse, for waiting for that one elusive monk that would never show up.  For random pugs, henchies (and later heroes) were never enough...  Being kicked because you refused to run a build you didn't even know...
Some armour and weapons in GW1 was nice, but some were horrible.
Only on the emotes do I agree.  We do have some fun new ones (I love the /sleep!) but I also miss a few I always used a lot in GW1 (/shoo).

guys i want to ask something the gw1 veterans..How did they manage to keep progression with the expansions without increasing max level or power plateau fro gear(besides new skins)?

I have always been able to make my own goals.  And GW1 (and now GW2) allows me to do so.  This could be trying to get that one skin (rare), or even getting all titles (most often), or getting titles in certain ways (such as my ele survivor, who got survivor by simply finishing Factions and part of Nightfall, and capping 5 elites).

Same here!  Though, I do have a few low-level characters, I play when my regular playing partner isn't around.

I wonder why people are so pissed that it was Disney that bought it (maybe not here, but on other sites).

Disney rather recently released on of the most successful movies this year. The Avengers. So clearly they can make good and successful movies.


#2053486 Details on Halloween Finale

Posted Neo Nugget on 31 October 2012 - 12:04 AM

ArenaNet has recently shed some light on the Halloween finale that will be taking place tomorrow morning Pacific Daylight Time. Unlike Guild Wars 1 this event will run continuously throughout the day, so don't worry if you can't log-in at a specific time.

Also, make sure you satisfy your Ascent to Madness dungeon itch as it will become unavailable as soon as phase four has been pushed into the live server.

See you all tomorrow!

Quote

We want to give you a heads up about Phase 4 of the Halloween event. Phase 4 will start at 9:00 AM PDT/16:00 GMT on October 31, and will run until we publish a new build on November 1 (which will be sometime after Noon PDT/19:00 GMT).

Once Phase 4 starts, the Ascent to Madness dungeon will no longer be available – but you will still be able to enter the Mad King’s realm, including the Labyrinth, the Clocktower, Reaper’s Rumble and Lunatic Inquisition.

Also make sure that you will “Attend the Party” in Lion’s Arch once Phase 4 starts, and do not worry: It is a non-stop party, so swing by any time you want!

Happy Halloween.

Are you trying to tell me that arena net would put weapon skins people are paying for in the black lion chest that are temporary? Can you imgaine how many players that will **** off? Some will pay hundreds of dollars to get those six exlsuive weapon skins from the BL chests with random luck....and your trying to get me to believe that they could be temporary...

I have a question for you? Is there more evidence that there is permenant weapon skins in the BL chest or temporary skins in the BLC chests? Do you have any proof that the skins recieved in the chests willl not be permanent?

The video clearly shows 4hr timers on the not gem store in game weapon skins..which means if the dev server is reflecting the live servers when the update starts....then they will be temporary skins.
Here is some information for you. https://forum-en.gui...irst#post501197 and it come from this thread, http://www.guildwars...2/#entry2035529  So there you go stop whining about.  >.>

I stopped the podcast at "Mesmers do no damage". Really? I then continued to just skim the podcast and I agree with a lot of the above poster. I hate to say it man but this is more of a rantcast than a podcast. The information is often VERY wrong and the questions are often overlooked or not answered. I heard more interest in forum drama rather than actual information.

Also "Oceanic" is just fine there is no UN-PC way to say that...

I am at a loss for words, best advice is try to be more informed for your upcoming casts.
