#2296599 Why Being Efficient is the Only Thing Left

Who is more skilled?
Why is time the only factor here?

Taco and the Wurm.


(Or to expand for those that will miss the point:
The game lacks ways through which players would be able to showcase their skill, so we adopted a universal showcase of skill: time. It's not perfect, but it exists outside of the game and can be applied to the game, making it viable as a means of showcasing skill.
And then, instead of increasing the complexity of the game to allow other measurements of skill, A.Net resorted to using "time" also. The game's most hardcore content is hardcore because of a SINGLE reason: it has a timer. A.Net is currently designing a game where "time" separates the good from the bad.)


#2287059 Watchwork Mining Pick

Posted Daesu on 29 January 2014 - 04:09 AM

At the price of 1000 gems, you probably need to mine for years to make it worth your investment.  No I don't think it is a problem, if you do the calculations.


#2280305 Origins of Madness

Posted Miragee on 14 January 2014 - 03:56 PM

Another two attractions to the theme park nobody will remember when we are in february.

just for fun: Look up the german vid just for the voice (it doesn't matter what is said since it's the usual omg evil destroy kill everything nooooo). I had tears in my eyes. And not because of joy. That's how I expect a male Scarlett voice to sound.


#2278004 Recap: The Living World of Guild Wars 2 & Black Lion Weapons Discount

Posted Misty Six on 07 January 2014 - 09:31 PM

Wow, 2 weapon ticket discount? Damn.. that's gotta be the best thing this year lol, now we can all spend more money and be happy! :D

Only 5 tickets for a molten weapon... damn, 5 tickets must be like... dunno, maybe 100 BL chests opened, which.. maybe sums up to about 100 euros? ..... ... Not sure, just figurative speech. Making more money is understandable, but.. please the time you put into this put it into thinking how to make the game better.

And what is more baffling.. all the best and coolest skins, are ONLY available in the gem shop lol, they've not made a single grain of effort to include them SOMEHOW into WVW, into PvE .. whatever, PvP.. no incentives at all, nothing, the only way you can get them is by spending money lol... how wrong is that............ Money money money....

Money...


#2277854 Exclusive Interview with ArenaNet's Chris Whiteside

For some reason that was just a terrible read. :(

I get it, he likes the CDI, because it gives the impression that they care. Alright. Promises that people will see the impact they had on future updates, once they roll out. Great! I am sure someone in those 36 pages has mentioned something that could be remotely related to anything that's coming...

Very long read for essentially zero news, nor teases. It's one of those interviews, I feel, the world can do without. Especially as there is that air of inferiority to the interviewer - if he's going down the Charr Armor rabbit hole, then freaking do it for crying out loud! Ask them the hard questions, not some fluff. He could have at least asked, if the team is even aware of the complete lack of acceptable choices for Charr to wear in that regard, not just gloss over it with some tame provocation.

But yeah, your worries that you might have spilled more than you were allowed to, were utterly unfounded Mr. Whiteside, because you haven't shed any light on anything whatsoever, other than your enthusiasm for people caring about the game.

That table man; nothing is off it.


#2269751 Update Notes for December 10th

Posted Illein on 10 December 2013 - 09:24 PM

Oh wait, I thought the expander put the collection size to 1000 for 800 gems. But it goes in 250 steps, so 2400 gems for the complete thing?

Holy ♥♥♥♥! Greedy pieces of ****!

I find it funny that they need to do this to institute a leader-board that everyone could probably give fsck-all about.


#2242859 World Transfer Sale

Posted Alex Dimitri on 10 October 2013 - 05:53 PM

Guys people interested in WvW will not go to medium server....they will try to get in higher tier servers, simply enough everyone wants to win :P. On the other hand those low tier ones, lower populated servers will become desert grounds....
See it`s not that easy as allowing free transfers WvW (specially if they want to make it competitive) needs balancing, so "chinesse army" syndrome (zergs, blobs) has no more influence on outcome of the fights !!!

There goes the candy corn prices.


#2240711 I can't keep up

Posted Desild on 05 October 2013 - 09:33 AM

For those, like me, played Guild Wars 1, here's a good morsel for your brain to chew on about:

What if War In Kryta only lasted 1 month? 2 months? Then everything, including the Inquisitor weapons, were removed from the game.

If you tell me you'd be okay with that, then you and I can't be friends.


#2238089 Have you paid more for gems than a sub fee in the past year?

Posted Karuro on 30 September 2013 - 10:53 AM

Nope.
All my gems come through the currency exchange.
