Monthly fees are dead. There are so many other options out there now that do not require them and people have come to realise that developers do not need such a high subscription cost to keep the game running.
Didn't realize this community had deteriorated so much . Just for the record, there are only two straight duels that I moa in. The first one, which I thought was hilarious since he immediately tried to use his "win"button and in the end I moa a pistol whip thief because....they are broken. Usually I save it to kill guardians or use in out matched odds.
This is causing major headaches for me. They put so much emphasis on playing together, but this makes it pretty much impossible. every time one of you use a waypoint, theres like a 1/3 chance that the party gets split up into different overflows and cant join eachother.
After the changes to clone's damage, it was clear it was their intention all along. I actually like the idea. Mesmers should not be minion masters (that's what necros are about), and shattering is already close enough to minion bombing. I prefer the similarities between both professions to not go much further than now. And sincerely, there was nothing suble, mesmery or trickery about swarming opponents with an epic army of twinbrothers.
What they need to do is to improve the decoy's effectiveness of clones (more swap chain skills, anyone?), and rework confusion so that the second shatter becomes the "better mind wrack" (it has, afterall, double the recharge). With the rise of Cry of Frustration (at least in PvE), the Mind Wrack's nerf wouldn't be so bad, as it would no longer be the only damage source from shattering.
As a kid, I learned the "just say NO". I donno if they still do that in school. So I'm just going to say NO to...
-Asura/Sylvari being in the next "BWE"
-Having a BWE3/4/5 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
I really hope ArenaNet doesn't have anymore betas. More than 3 is going way too far. I also hope they don't spoil the Sylvari and Asura. We need at least something to do during release besides playing the content we've already played throughout 3+ weekends.
Other than that, they've gone silent again. Normally when it remains silent, the first thing you hear is really loud. So, hopefully that is the case. I'd like the game to be released. No more betas please.
With all that said. July-August. I really don't think and pray to God we don't have to wait over 3 months to play this game. I'm sick of riding this rollercoaster. It's boring as hell and I want to get off. There's no more loops .
Every profession kicks ass against regular mobs in PvE, it's the elites and bosses that really put you to the test. And if you've run Catacombs with a warrior, then you'll realise how UP they are now.
People trying to play PvE dungeons like PvP will always fail. If you think classes are underpowered due to a first time run in a dungeon, then you'd have to rethink your stance because that won't be the case when people figure out what is required for each dungeon.
